Dog) Hi Ted, My mom was telling me about a dog that has been
hanging around our house. It's a male solid black boxer with white
tips only on his paws. He appears to be pretty young and very friendly,
a little on the skinny side. He's wearing a red collar with no tag
and a flea collar. If anyone knows who this dog belongs to please
call Jeanna Cooper at 381-7444. He's been hanging around 196th St.
(4000 Rd) and Memorial. Thanks, -- Cara Cooper (7:30pm 7/11/2008)

(Pastor of Collinsville's Meadowcreek United Methodist Church),
passed away this morning of a heart attack. The entire congregation
has lost a wonderful pastor and a dear friend. The funeral will
likely be Monday. The planning is still going on now. District
Superintendent, Maurice Majors, will give the sermon on Sunday.
The last thing the pastor mentioned on Sunday was gearing up for
the back to school drive. We are hoping to raise $10,000.00 to
purchase all the necessary supplies for students whose families
cannot purchase their supplies. We will continue that ministry.
Thank so much! -- Linda Wilson (Tuesday 7/1/2008 7:30pm)
