March 31, 2005
Although Roxanne Grizzle may eventually be a renowned name in Kansas high school track and field, it would simply be a mistake to dub her as a one-sport star.

Taxes, growth concerns in Council race
March 31, 2005
When De Soto voters will be handed ballots Tuesday, the interest may be with a couple of social issues to be decided and not the race of city offices. This year’s campaign for city offices contrasts greatly with that in 2001, when the recent annexation of Sunflower Quarry and Oz Entertainment Co.’s redevelopment proposal for the Sunflower Army Ammunition Plant provided controversial wedge issues. In 2001, Mayor Dave Anderson faced two other candidates to win his seat, and six candidates filed for the Council seats won by Tim Maniez and Emil Urbanek. Although no one chose to run against Anderson this time around, three candidates —Ted Morse, Barry Thierer and Dave Vigness — and incumbent Maniez opted to seek the two open Council seats. Voters will be asked to vote for two candidates with the two men with the most votes winning the seats.
