2017 Top Stories
5A State Runners-Up: Wrestlers, Winter Guard, Golf Girls & Band

From my perspective no single story rises to be the single "story of the year" level but again the commulative overall continued excellence of Collinsville High School "Activities" is my co-top story for 2017. The other top story category is "Change" in Collinsville.

Activity success was topped by a regional championship for the Collinsville Crimson Cadet Band at the St. Louis "Bands of America" marching competition. The other CHS "championship" was the cheerleaders bringing home the top academic trophy for the 4th year in a row. State runner-up trophies were brought home by the wrestlers, golf girls, winter guard and band (OBA).

Change was exemplified by the near loss of the Silver Dollar Cafe (after a car crashed the front facade which is now nearly restored), the loss of the Clark Building (former Sale Barn) which will be replaced by a different type business in 2018, and several improvement projects: city plaza, Center Street project (3 blocks of paving & sidewalks), and completion of two bridge replacements..
