The most anticipated part of the Eudora High School International Club’s Christmas project could be a moment junior Kim Scherman will never get to see.

November 30, 2006
Like any first-year teacher, Beth Durkin drafts lesson plans to make her subject more interesting. Sometimes that means finding the right materials to make sure her lessons stand out.

Impact fee debate one of fairness
November 30, 2006
The Eudora City Council is once again considering development fees for new construction hooking up to city utilities. The terms of the debate are familiar with the expectation development should pay for itself against the fear too aggressive a move on development fees will actually stifle growth as builders and homeowners look for cheaper places to build and buy.

November 30, 2006
