Eudora’s top 10: No. 1: Volleyball
January 4, 2007
It wasn’t just that the Eudora girls volleyball team won its first state championship. It wasn’t just that it did it with a dominating final match, or that the team’s chances stayed afloat in the most heart-stopping of ways. It wasn’t just that the Cardinals overcame so much before they could make 2006 a success or that this championship came only after frustrating finishes to the trips to state in the two years prior.
Eudora’s top 10: No. 2: Baseball
January 4, 2007
The Eudora boys baseball team was dominant for most of the 2006 season — completely, totally, utterly dominate. That didn’t translate into a state championship, but it made for one heck of a ride through the regular season, through sub-state and all the way up to the state championship game. Though Eudora lost to Kansas City-Bishop Ward 16-3 in the final, it was one heck of a year for the boys of spring.
Eudora’s top 10: No. 3: Girls track
January 4, 2007
There would seem to be no more individual sport at the high school level than track and field. Heck, even the team rankings are generally compilations of what individuals did all by themselves. The Eudora girls track and field team worked together, however, and on the strength of two relay championships and several individual medals, nearly every Cardinal that qualified for the state meet earned the right to help hoist the team’s Class 4A runner-up trophy.
Eudora’s top 10: No. 4: Football
January 4, 2007
If this were a ranking purely of what story captivated the town the most in the last year, there would be little that could compete with the football team. Though runs to state title games and matches placed several stories above football, there’s no denying the thrill of the season the Cardinals put together.

Appointment followed statute
January 4, 2007
Several weeks ago I appointed Jeff Peterson to fill the vacant city council seat left open with the resignation of Councilman Kevin Miller. Following that appointment Councilman Bill Whitten indicated to the press that he believed the appointment was not done properly. Therefore, I requested and obtained a legal opinion from Lathrop & Gage, our city legal advisors.

Feeding our feathered friends
January 4, 2007
People like birds. Whether it’s feeding birds, studying birds, preparing wild birdseed mixtures or participating in the annual Audubon Christmas bird count, area residents have birds on their minds. And during winter, it’s especially important to remember that once you start feeding birds, they will grow accustomed to using your feeders. To continue attracting birds, continue to feed them. In a report by several weekly newspapers, we look at why people feed birds; we offer some advice on how best to attract birds; and we introduce you to some interesting area residents. Here’s our report.
Cross country brings brothers together again
January 4, 2007
It was a new trail, but it was the same place, and as Kenan Staples pulled into the Wamego Country Club golf course parking lot for October’s cross country state championships, that same feeling washed over him. Soon he was zipping across the course just as he had long before. And, even though it had been 10 years since Staples helped Eudora to its only team cross country championship, he said from the moment he stepped out of the car he was anxious and he was excited.
