Sesquicentennial showcases community
August 9, 2007
Two weekends ago Eudora again celebrated CPA Picnic in the park. Every year, there is a discussion about what CPA stands for, and if you want to hazard a guess watch the Eudora News for information on how to enter the 150th birthday trivia contest. This past week the question was, “What does CPA stand for and what was its original purpose?” Follow the rules of the contest and you may qualify as a winner of a $150 prize to be awarded at the end of the contest in October.

Clarke welcomes summer stylings
August 9, 2007
Fargo, N.D., doesn’t rank very high on a list of the summer’s most popular vacation destinations, and rarely does North Dakota’s largest city elicit the term “breathtaking.” That’s how Eudora senior Travis Clarke described his recent trip, however. Clarke could only look on in awe when he first stumbled into the 25-mat freestyle and Greco-Roman wrestling championships last month in Fargo.

Redesigned Frontier League offers advantages
August 9, 2007
It may be bad news for kids. OK — only those kids who love long bus rides and early exits from school for sporting events. Outside of that, area athletic officials said the new Frontier League will be a great thing. The slim-downed league — it drops from 13 teams to eight this season — could make for better competition, easier scheduling and shorter travel times, which equates to more time in school, especially for the junior varsity squads whose game’s typically start earliest.
