City looks to TIFs to increase tax base
January 18, 2007
Eudora City Administrator Cheryl Beatty outlined the challenge. Eudora needs more commercial business to maintain growth. The prime places where businesses might grow need infrastructural improvements the city can’t afford. Residential property taxpayers outnumber commercial taxpayers 9-to-1. The disparity means few restaurants, one hardware store and no large general store, Beatty said.

Wrestlers impress at Basehor tourney
January 18, 2007
In any other wrestling tournament, getting 17th place would not be anything to get too excited about. But considering the tough Class 6A competition from Shawnee Mission East and Class 5A big guns St. Thomas Aquinas, acquiring 70.5 points — the best Eudora has ever gotten in the 27-team Bobcat Classic tournament — is nothing to be ashamed about.

The panel, called Driving Force, made 28 recommendations in 11 areas of studies — from better statewide trauma care and emergency medical services to how to address problems associated with teen and senior drivers.

EMS teacher helps students to discover local prairies
January 18, 2007
Students in Joe Pickett’s seventh-grade science class Jan. 9 crouched against the wall. They were poised, ready to run. For the moment, the students weren’t outside Eudora Middle School, but scrounging in the open Kansas prairie. There, the students left their familiar lives behind. They were coyotes and, worse, they were on the edge of starvation.

Eudora statue project progressing on two fronts
January 18, 2007
Progress on one of the centerpieces of Eudora’s 150th anniversary celebration is coming in ahead of schedule. That’s because a commemorative brick drive and a seven-month series of fund-raisers helped supporters net more than half of the money needed to pay for a bronze statue of the town’s namesake. Much more. “I think we’re at about 80 percent,” Eudora Lions Club member Tom Tucker said.
