Haley Epperson was crushed when injury forced her to miss the volleyball state championship, but she’s recovered on the court
February 1, 2007
Eudora High School sophomore Haley Epperson works hard. She does well in school and she plays in the starting lineup for the varsity basketball team. She averages roughly 14 points per game and has had 23 steals this season, and at times, she’s simply made it all look easy. Easy — maybe that’s the most impressive part.

Congress must address NCLB Ponzi scheme
February 1, 2007
The Eudora school district officials recently announced another year of stellar performance on state assessment tests. Soon thereafter, high school administrators announced their plan to continue improving and motivating students. That is necessary because this year’s math and reading, which met the state’s standards of excellence, will not be good enough in three to four years to meet increasing difficult annual yearly progress standards required by the federal No Child Left Behind Act.

Filings surprise mayor, council
February 1, 2007
Eudora Mayor Tom Pyle said he could look at the lack of filings for city council one of two ways. When the Jan. 23 filing deadline passed, only three candidates filed for the three open seats on the council. He could view the sparse turnout as a negative reaction to the status quo or a positive affirmation of it, he said. Pyle decided to look at the bright side. “One way tells me the public is fairly well satisfied with the way things are going,” Pyle said.
Center helps students navigate future
February 1, 2007
Since her freshman year at Eudora High School, senior Mary Cox hasn’t been a stranger to the school’s career center. “When I started high school, I wasn’t the kind of person who knew what I wanted to do or where exactly I wanted to go,” she said. With less than four months before graduation, she’s still waiting to make a final decision on which college to attend. In the meantime, she uses the center to keep tabs on college and scholarship information.
