Add prom & after prom party to my backlog of news. Most of my prom photos will just be in the archives for a "dressed-up" photo for many future senior pages in the next few years... but will try to have at least a sample page online in a day or two. Dr. Don White's hypnotist show was one of many fun activities at the after prom party. Pretty clear at this point that the May 1st launch of the senior pages will be a partial release only. -- Ted -- 4:45am Sunday -- And FYI, I seriously considered dragging the old ragged original copies of the 1912 Collinsville newspapers Saturday to see what might have been said here about the Titanic sinking 100 years before, but decided that would just put me further behind. Maybe later this summer?
