Lots happening in Collinsville and I hate having a story that is a week old not online yet (with my goal of same or next day coverage) ... so decided to give you a preview of what stories I have in progress.

The Channel 2 visit Tuesday caused me to spend long overdue time cleaning up the newspaper museum ... and with the spring weather you might consider scheduling a tour before the summer heat.

Thank you to the folks that supply news/photos/news tips ... I really appreciate it.
