Times Star Newspaper
History Correction
Re-writing history? What my brain is thinking is not always what my fingers are typing ... I need to make a correction to the 1980 historical item I submitted to the Times Star newspaper that was printed this week. LeAnne Taylor was third runnerup at Miss Oklahoma (not Miss Collinsville where she was the winner). And I also had the year wrong. -- Ted Wright 11/20/2015 35 Years Ago -- From November 20, 1980 "The Collinsville News" -- The third annual Miss Collinsville Pageant will be held Saturday December 6, 1980, in the Collinsville Middle School gym, 14th and Center Streets. Ten contestants are entered. The reigning Miss Collinsville is LeAnne Taylor, who was third runnerup in the Miss Oklahoma pageant and also a winner in the swimsuit competition will attend.
