Just say no to GMO
On Saturday May 23, Eureka is holding its first annual Millions Against Monsanto event. Monsanto is the dominant biotech industrial giant that has been fast and furiously changing our food supply, for the last 20 years, with its introduction of GMO’s. Many would say in a very scary way.

Trail Trekking in the Tobacco Valley
The Trail Trekkers are a fit group of outdoor enthusiasts that gather together twice a week to enjoy all the beautiful trails that the Tobacco Valley has to offer. During the winter they might snow shoe and then come early spring they begin with some easy hikes to get everyone back in shape. By mid summer they will be found hiking a lot of vertical feet and perhaps even scrambling over some rocks.
Louise Burke Memorial Breast Cancer Awareness Luncheon
The Louise Burke Memorial Breast Cancer Awareness Luncheon has become something of an institution in Eureka. We know that just about the time that the tulips are blooming and lilacs start to come out, its time to look forward to this very special Friday luncheon. And this year's luncheon was the best yet. Julie Smith with her corps of volunteers put together an amazing event that was delicious, educational and fun.
Eureka's Community Garden
In 2009, it was an idea that sprouted among participants in a Master Gardener class. By 2010, the group had begun building garden beds on county land adjacent to the Lincoln County fair grounds. That first year there were 33 raised beds established with organic soil and an automatic drip system. This spring Jim Finley, garden manager, reports there are currently 47 beds available with the plan to add another sixteen.
What makes a good neighbor? Is a neighbor someone who happens to live next door or on the adjoining acres? Is it the person you stop to chat with in the grocery store because your kids go to the same school? And can we say exactly what is the difference between a neighbor and a good neighbor? Neighbors in our community joined together on Thursday, April 30 at the LCHS Commons Area to have that conversation.
