Following two years of planning, the Eudora school board decided to move forward on a state-of-the-art football stadium to the west of the current high school.

With school districts making cuts to staff and programs, wondering where money will come from for education, isn't it refreshing to find a district with their priorities in the right place?
Here is an interesting story idea. Take a look at the grade school built in 1950. State of the art for its time. Look at the one that replaced it in the 1970's. Then look at the new one built last year. In doing that you will see how expectations have changed. How we now expect a life style in all things that we can't afford. I played on the football field that Law field replaced. It was adequate, I believe it was regulation size, had grass turf and yard lines. The 1979's field had better parking and seating but the game was the same. So what it "state of the art" about the prospective field? Is it 110 yards or is it wider. Will the game be different? Can you throw longer there or kick longer? Or is it that it will have better TV accomodations and plusher dressing rooms? That would be great if we had the money. But again maybe a life styole we can no longer afford.
I guess a "new" feild will help the kids learn better. Thats what they always use as a excuse for building new things. "It will help the kids"! B.S!
A new frivolous law suit opportunity for Paulette! Yea!
I play football for Eudora.......You know I love it!
