Council OKs truck purchase
August 30, 2007
It won’t be new, but the city will have a replacement for its oldest fire truck. The council voted unanimously to purchase the pump truck from a dealer in Springfield, Mo., for $71,750. The city will trade in its current truck for $15,000. The truck, a 1987 Pierce Lance, has a capacity of 1,000 gallons of water and can carry 10 firefighters. The truck it replaces only carries two firefighters. The council went ahead with the purchase after examining the possibility of buying a ladder upgrade instead.

August 30, 2007
The Eudora High School football team knows the time for talking is over and game time is the only thing that matters as it opens the season at 7 p.m. Friday evening with a road contest at Osawatomie.

As of Saturday morning’s preseason scrimmage, two players, Ben Katzenmeier and Matthew Abel, were still in a battle as the top quarterback.
