Boys’ play could be start of real racial understanding
April 19, 2007
There was lots of news this past week. Julian Wright decided to enter the NBA draft , the pope turned 80, the Duke lacrosse team was exonerated of all charges in a scandal involving an exotic dancer, we finally found out who the father of Anna Nicole Smith’s baby is and oh, yes, something about the Rutgers’ girls basketball team. Let’s see, did you pick up on any of that? Of course, I am being facetious — anyone privy to a TV, radio or newspaper or the Internet has seen little else this past week.

In October, Eudora’s sesquicentennial anniversary will be celebrated with fireworks, music and a festival.

A century-and-a-half earlier on April 17, 1857, a group of 16 German settlers from Chicago arrived to a town site purchased by the German Settlement Society. The land was located between the Kansas and Wakarusa rivers on the Fremont Trail. Their goal was to build a new community.

Instead, Long brought a technology plan to the Eudora USD 491 Board of Education Thursday that would put the district well on the path to making it happen.

Artist’s Journey
Alice Kuo captures Eudora’s natural beauty through art
April 19, 2007
Eudora resident Alice Kuo is on a journey that might never end. It’s a path where her steps are taken by strokes of her paintbrush. Her progression could be seen by the evolving style of her paintings. Eventually, she wants to reach to the highest ideal of her own expression, she said. Her quest led her to blend her Chinese heritage and her ongoing American experience. It also led her to the yellow fields, placid ponds and iconic silos of the Kaw River Valley that surround her Eudora home.
