July 9, 2009

We often complain about the Kansas heat and humidity. Myself included. However, in one respect we can consider ourselves a bit lucky.

Another heat wave settling in over northeast Kansas

July 8, 2009

It's like a heat wave... Whether it's the forecast or a song by Martha and the Vandellas, the phrase "heat wave" is often overused. Probably because when day after day of heat and humidity set in, everyone is talking about it and there just aren't enough good phrases to sum up the unpleasant weather.

Computer prediction models not always so hot

June 29, 2009

So looking ahead to the next few days, there is most definitely one thing that is apparent. The models are teasing us with a bigger cool down than we'll actually see. This is a case-in-point of why you can't just trust a computer program or automated website to get your forecast.

The Hottest “Feeling” Place in the World?

United City & School Plan

United City & School Plan

January 26, 2009

A plan to keep the city and school district on the same page for mil rate levels in the future. To allow for the city to plan ahead for tax revenue. The plan would make all school spending be heard and voted on at open regular City of Eudora City council meetings, and be voted on. The goal is to have all future school district spending heard to allow the city to keep a mil rate that can be sustained and maintain Eudora. As it stands the school district is keeping the mil rate max`d out and the city cannot bring in enough revenue to keep the city up and safe. This is something that has got to be fixed before we have issues that cannot be fixed. I would like feedback from anyone on this and ideas before it is taken to the City council this spring.
