Six Eureka Tornado basketball players received post-season honors last week when they were named to the Tri-Valley League (TVL) basketball teams.

After 61 years of providing services to the Eureka community, Eureka Greenhouses, owned by the Moots family, will close it’s doors.

The Eureka USD 389 board of education met on Monday of last week, March 11, for a routine monthly meeting, where they approved two resignations and one employment.


During the last few months of the Bond Election informational process there have been several unfavorable comments regarding USD 389 and its quality of education.

When the tornado of June 26, 2018 destroyed the Community Activity Center (CAC), the USD 389 Board of Education had to decide what would be built to replace the destroyed structure.

On January 30, 2019 I voted in favor of a Bond Issue for improvements to the facilities at Eureka Jr.


This past Thursday, the Eureka basketball team traveled to Hutchinson to take part in the 2019 3A State Basketball Tournament.

In their first ever trip to the KSHAA State Tournament, the Eureka Lady Tornadoes faced the Panthers of Hoyt-Royal Valley on Wednesday, March 6, at the Hutchinson Sports Arena in Hutchinson.
