Girls basketball team proud of league finish
March 16, 2006
A decisive defeat in the sub-state tournament may have seemed like a bitter conclusion for the Eudora Cardinals’ 2006 season. First-year head coach Ryan Luke sees things a little differently.
Cards hope to carry 2005 momentum into new season
March 16, 2006
For a team who fell just one run short of a state berth last year, one would think there may be a slogan, a mantra or some other motivating factor floating around the softball diamond during Eudora’s practices. Hardly.
Last year a distant memory for baseball team
March 16, 2006
It all ended so quickly for the Cardinal baseball team last year, and when it did, a long layoff was the only reward for a tremendous regular season. Eudora saw a 19-3 season end somewhat prematurely in the second round of the 4A sub-state tournament with a 10-4 loss to the Piper Pirates. Last year, however, is just that, as the 2006 version of the Eudora Cardinals are gathering for another run at a Frontier League crown and maybe a trip to state.
The Fly Route
March 16, 2006
Great. The last thing I needed was a reason to root for Alex Rodriguez and be thankful that Derek Jeter was waiting on deck. I may not like cheering for said Yankees, but I have no choice, and as much as it pains me, I can’t help but love the World Baseball Classic.

Andy Kelly was proving his point perhaps better than he even knew.

Rec complex part of the cost of progress
March 16, 2006
When I first moved to Eudora, one of the main topics of conversation was the new swimming pool on the ballot for the voters to decide. For a small community like this to have a nice pool replace the current one seemed almost a no-brainer.

Back from service, Jason Koehn finally meets his son
March 16, 2006
One by one, Jason Koehn watched people walk off the plane. He’d been traveling for 36 hours before that point, from northern Africa to Kansas by way of Iceland. He’d spent the greater part of a year away from his life and buried in work as an intelligence specialist for the Marines. Christmas and Thanksgiving were most painful for him,but seemed far off because of the heat and his constant activity with the native peoples of Djibouti. By the time he finally stepped off the plane, he realized he was the last to leave.

Jimmy’s roof was just one victim of a string of storms that bowled over signs near Kansas Highway 10, blasted barns and caused more the $6 million in damage to the nearby Kansas University campus in Lawrence.
