The quest speaker for
today's meeting was Roger's County District 2 Commissioner Mike Helm. Commissioner
Helm indicated that Rogers County accounted for about $420,000 in support
to Collinsville Schools which span county boundaries. Mr. Helm's spoke of
many ways he has tried to "make a difference" everyday in his endeavors
for Roger's County. In interesting future activities Mike Helm discussed the
potential for elevating the track through Claremore for the 92 trains that
pass daily. Another plan in the works involves a commuter train from Claremore
to Tulsa to reduce cars on busy Highway 66.
