Local mom and daughters each graduate on same weekend
May 24, 2007
The road to college graduation has been a long one for Tami Klinedinst. It has involved raising four children, living on two continents and, at times, working five jobs to make ends meet. Klinedinst, a 45-year-old Eudora resident, received a bachelor’s degree in psychology last weekend from Kansas University, something she began pursuing more than 25 years ago. It makes things sweeter for her that two of her children will have school graduations on the same weekend, one from Johnson County Community College and the other from Eudora High School.

Teacher negoatiations progressing
May 24, 2007
As teacher negotiations ramp up for the 2007-2008 school year, district officials enter into talks without a significant cost of living increase to offer. Last year, the Kansas Legislature voted to allow districts in high-cost areas to levy one mill of tax revenue to specifically fund teacher salaries as a way to keep up with the price of living.

Check out trash containers
May 24, 2007
Everyone needs to be aware of the new trash container ordinance the city of Eudora is proposing. I was at City Hall May 9 to pay my bill, and they had two different sizes of trash containers on display. All Eudora residents should take the opportunity to visit City Hall and become acquainted with the new trash containers.

Ballock looks to shave final fractions in record quest
May 24, 2007
A track athlete really stands out as special when setting a school record becomes a ho-hum affair. Emily Ballock did just that Friday at the regional track meet hosted at Santa Fe Trail High School. She — yawn! — set a school record at 43.4 seconds in the 300 hurdles for probably the 56th time this season. She seemingly sets that school record once a week when the team competes, and she probably does it 15 more times during the week at practices.

It’s our turn’: softballers ready for state
May 24, 2007
They watched one year ago as the baseball team fought its way to the state championship game. They paid attention as the cross country team again and again found success at state in the fall, then even again in the spring when many of the same kids did much the same thing on the track. They bundled up to cheer on the football team’s run to the state quarterfinals, and packed up to cheer the volleyball team to last fall’s state championship. The Eudora girls softball team, along with ever-present coach Cara Kimberlin, has been there for every step of what has been a remarkable two-year run for Eudora High School teams. Now, at last, it’s their turn.

Eudora West Elementary School fifth-graders meet their mask
May 24, 2007
Eudora West Elementary School fifth-grader Sabastian Lee received his first practical lesson in nose rings May 16. The lesson had nothing to do with youthful rebellion and everything to do with a brown paper mache African mask he called “Zimbabwe.” “It kind of matches his personality,” Lee said of the name.
TIF district returns to counci
May 24, 2007
Citizens have the opportunity to express opinions Tuesday on a possible TIF district during a public hearing at the Eudora City Council meeting. The meeting was delayed until Tuesday because of the Memorial Day holiday. In April, the council accepted a blight study from planning consultants Bucher, Willis & Ratliff that deemed an area east of town unfit for development.

Class of 2007 earns right to be called Eudora High School graduates

The yellow hackey-sack arched through the air. Austin Crystal caught it on his foot and kicked it back up. Next to him, Tim Fredrickson and Amber Jurkovich watched the ball’s path and waited for it to come back. The group played the game at lunch each day throughout their four years at Eudora High School. After leaving the Eudora High School commons Saturday afternoon, the group removed cap and gown and started one last game with their family and friends –- as graduates.

I am the father of five wonderful, beautiful children. About 11 years ago, my middle daughter Madeline was experiencing inexplicable fevers and joint pain. After six weeks of painful and sleepless nights, we learned our baby girl had cancer. “No, not my ‘Puddins,’” I thought.
