The girls won the 1st game today beating Vinita 3-1. Abby Miller
started out pitching but took a hard hit to the arm while batting
(possible fracture). Kylie Cole came in to pitch this game as well
as the entire game with Claremore Sequoyah. We played them for the
championship but lost 2-1 in the 10th inning. We were losing 0-1
and in the 6th inning Miriah McElroy hit a homerun to tie it up.
We fought hard every inning but in the bottom of the 10th they had
a runner on 2nd and a hard hit to the right side scored the winning
run for Sequoyah. The girls should be proud, they played their hearts
out and never gave up! -- Missy Delozier -- 9-28-2007 10:30pm
Update: The girls lost the 2nd game to Claremore Sequoyah 4-1.
They play today at 12:30 against Vinita. Loser goes home ... winner
plays Claremore Sequoyah at 2:00 for the championship. We'd have
to beat them twice to go to State. -- Missy Delozier -- 9-28-2007

I was a surprised today to see the local newspaper (my compeititor)
come out in favor of increasing sales taxes for the entire county
for a river project far from Collinsville and most other county
residents. I don't object to the project, just the way it is being
funded. The Jenks Riverwalks project (which the rest of the county
didn't have to pay for) is cited as an example of why we should
help Tulsa pay for their own development. A new tax here is likely
the only way Collinsville will ever have a usable swimming pool
again. Taxes will continue (or be raised) to keep building Collinsville
classrooms to keep up with school growth here. Other taxes may be
required soon for other Collinsville maintenance, protection and
growth issues. Taxpayers have a limit in how much more they will
tolerate. Given a choice, I would rather pay my taxes for specific
Collinsville uses than pay for Tulsa improvements and hope for a
potential trickle down benefit. I challange the claimed 9000+ new
jobs as a typical pre-election claim. I treat it the same as the
Vision 2025 pre-election listing of funds for "low water dams
on the Arkansas River" that we are now told were just for "studies"
not actually building anything. I was in favor of Vision 2025 and
4-to-fix the county votes as they at least had token Collinsville
projects. I have little confidence in either the City of Tulsa or
the County after recent suspicious changes at the County?/City?
Fairgrounds in Tulsa. As with most scams the kicker is usually when
you are told that "you must decide now as the offer will not
be available later" ... with millions of developer dollars
being waived as a carrot before voters with a lack of solid information
on who will really benefit from our tax dollars. Vote
NO Oct. 9th for Collinsville to have a chance to make
it's own improvements. -- Ted Wright -- 9-26-2007 -- 4pm
Sales Tax Comparisons
2007 Distribution Reports
studying the July 2007 sales tax reports ... I was stunned
to find what looks like Tulsa County collecting 35% of
all of the county sales tax collected in the entire state
of Oklahoma! ($7.5 million out of $21.2 million). Oklahoma
County, Cleveland County, etc... the major counties around
OKC do not collect county taxes if I'm intrepreting the report
correctly? -- Ted 1am Thursday
