|The capture of Randolph
Dial in Texas this week (more than 10 years after disappearing from an
Oklahoma prison with the warden's wife) had me looking in 1981 archives
for the death of a Collinsville schoolmate. Dial was convicted years later
for the 1981 death of Kelly Hogan (a 1971 Collinsville High School graduate).
While in the 1981 archive copies of the Collinsville News I found several
other stories (below) that are also of interest today. -- Ted Wright 4-6-2005

Story story on Dial's capture).
|Obviously the Pope
survived this 1981 attack as he died earlier this week of natural causes:
Pope John Paul II died Saturday
April 2nd, 2005, at age 84. His funeral will be Friday April 8th.
|I assume the 1981
Cardinal baseball catcher below is the same Tony Reeder that coaches the
Cardinal baseball team now. 1981 Card baseball coach Pat Herald is our
superintendent of schools now-- Ted
Reagan also survived his 1981 gun shots and died of natural causes last
2004). A story on the same Collinsville News front page details
plans for the band's trip to Alanta for the "Six Flags Over Georgia
Band Festival". Another October 1981 news story had the CHS band
in trouble for "disturbing the peace" with their 7am practices
in the city park. The complaint was later dropped.
nothing to do with 1981 but noticed my digital camera image counter reached
9000 today. I got my new Kodak camera back in October and greatly improved
the quality of photos on this web site.

haven't had a chance to update stats for the cvilleok.com web site since
January ... but
the visits have remained over 12,000 for both Feb & Mar. 2005.

I received the valedictorian list today. Congratulations to J.T. Coggins,
Emilee Dutton, Heather Horn, Shannon Slagle and Brett Smith. And congratulations
to salutatorian P.J. Robinson also. When I have the grad pages finished,
students graduating with distinction and honors will also be noted. --
