Hundreds of music lovers filled the blocks along Central Avenue for the summer concert series.
Central Avenue in Eureka was transformed into an outdoor music venue Friday night with the sounds of Fanfare. The street was closed between Dryer Avenue and West Frisco Avenue to vehicular traffic for the latest in the Concerts on Central summer concert series. The street music was from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Making the most of a one-day break from more than three weeks of 90-plus degree heat, attendees brought their lawn chairs, friends and family, then sat back, enjoyed a cold beverage and tapped their toes. Some found the moxie to line dance and do a little swing dancing. Fanfare featuring Kittie Moller played a variety of styles of music which appealed to all ages, including Motown, R&B, Disco, Pop, Country, Standards & Jazz and Big Band. …

Financial planner built career and life here. This is the sixth and last feature regarding profiles of all six Eureka board of aldermen. Patch thanks each one for sharing personal details!
When Don Beckerle was delivering newspapers as a young boy in south St. Louis, he probably didn’t think about a career path that led down Interstate 44. But once he arrived in Eureka, he was here to stay. “I started my first and current job here in 1988,” said Beckerle, who moved to Eureka to found Beckerle Financial Group, which provides insurance and financial planning and specializes in marketing, enrolling and administering voluntary insurance programs. In 2008 he ran for Ward 3 Alderman “to stay more in touch with activity within the city." Since moving to Eureka, Beckerle and his wife, Sherry, started a family, which includes son Josh and daughter Julia, as well as their dog, Coda. One of Beckerle’s favorite activities is fishing, …

Regardless of what overall comments are shared or written during the next several weeks, Eureka citizens have the chance to become informed voters in a very personal, open manner.
For any Eureka voter who would like the opportunity to sit down one-on-one with either of the city's two mayoral candidates—Kevin Coffey and Lee Kropp—both men have announced their schedules for meeting with residents, and will be available according to the following plans. Monday's Patch included an article regarding an impromptu challenge issued to the candidates by one Eureka business owner. This future series of direct conversations with the two candidates is an excellent way to secure firsthand information. Editor's Notes: Prior to this article, Eureka mayor candidate Lee Kropp already conducted two face-to-face sessions at the following local restaurants: Feb. 9 at Solid Rock Kaffe Haus and Feb. 16 at Chick-N-Elly's. Eureka-…

Monday morning, one business owner attempted to get straight and directly to the items reflected in the Eureka mayoral race. He took unusual action.
It started with certain postings on a Facebook page this weekend. Eddie Buck, owner of Eureka Signs & Display said he then wanted to hear straight from the mouths of the two mayor candidates for Eureka's leadership spot, rather than through other people's interpretations of the candidates' positions on relevant city matters. So, Buck issued a challenge via Facebook to both candidates on Saturday: Show up at his office at 9 a.m. Monday to have a conversation. "I'm tired of all the posturing, and thought it would be helpful to hear directly from both candidates how they stand on things," said Buck. "I thought both would show up, or perhaps nothing at all. But the whole intent of this challenge was to get to the facts of what one …

Eureka board of aldermen draft new ordinance and process for allowing chickens to be kept at city residences.
When a Eureka family recently asked the city's board of aldermen to consider adjusting an ordinance to allow keeping chickens at one's residence, they promised to explore options. Curtis Burns, a resident of 505 Williams Drive, Eureka, originally requested at the Nov. 9 board of aldermen meeting to have chickens at his home by recommending a new ordinance that altered the acreage required for keeping such animals within city limits. In essence, existing city regulations indicate no resident living on fewer than 3 acres of land can raise or harbor chickens and other fowl. Additionally, for those with more acreage, no more than five chickens per acre could be kept, with a total of 50 tops, regardless of the size of land ownership. At the …
