Johnson hopes to continue running
July 6, 2006
It’s still there — that much Casey Johnson is sure of. The unquenchable drive that made Johnson one of De Soto High School’s best track and cross country athletes for four years hasn’t been lost despite the decidedly rough ride Johnson has endured since graduating from De Soto in May 2005. It’s been tested, though.

91st Street traffic problems local issue
July 6, 2006
The city of De Soto and De Soto USD 232 have shown commendable cooperation of late. In that spirit, the city council should recognize the district’s past contribution to 91st Street and forego an effort to include the district in a benefit district for new traffic signals.
Fireworks not objects of self-restraint
July 6, 2006
I let the evening light be my clock Tuesday as I waited to leave my home in Baldwin to photograph the De Soto community Fourth of July fireworks show. From past experience, I knew the show didn’t start until it got dark. Here, fireworks don’t compete with the waning summer sun.

Now showing

Superman returned to movie theaters last week, and to hear Hollywood whine about it, he was not met with open arms nor did a grateful public throw flowers at his feet. In this day and age, a single day box office take of “only” $21 million is the disappointing equivalent of a moviegoing insurgency that sabotages financial expectations. After seeing it myself on opening night, I’m afraid the outlook may not get much better.

What a difference a summer makes
July 6, 2006
Sports are officially conducted at De Soto High School from the middle of August to the beginning of June, but a number of coaches agreed the success any particular Wildcat team realizes during the year can often be linked directly to what the team’s athletes do during the months they’re not in school

De Soto residents Maye Gulley and Mark LaBarge are among 300 county residents who spread word of horticultural research as volunteers in Johnson County Extension’s master gardener program.
Fireworks debris a concern
July 6, 2006
Watching his daughter Ashley burn sparklers late Tuesday evening near Variety of Yummies on 83rd Street, James Wood expressed his view of the city of De Soto’s lifting the fireworks ban for the first time this century. “We’re having fun,” he said over the constant bang of near and distant fireworks. “From the sound of it, so are a lot of other people.”
