August School Menus posted along with preliminary info on "many exciting changes in the Child Nutrition Program. This next school year you will find new menus and new recipes rich in a variety of whole grains, fruits and vegetables. You will also see the new smart snack rules implemented in the middle and high school snack bars. The new rules set limits on the amount of calories, fat, sugar and salt per serving while encouraging the consumption of dairy, whole grains, lean protein, fruit, and vegetables. You will still find many of your familiar brand name products you have enjoyed in the past and you may even find some new favorites to enjoy. High school students will enjoy the addition of a new coffee machine that offers a variety of low calorie coffee products." -- per Andrea Reser, Child Nutrition Program Director Check back for a photo page from the 1st-4th grade football skills camp.

From what I can piece together ... the reason I could not find information on Blake Unger's death is that he is listed as Kenneth Kaiser (Claremore) in the OKC shooting story NewsOn6 July 17th and in Tulsa World 7/21 death notices as Blake Kaiser (Owasso). Mowery Funeral is listed in some info as where the funeral was held today (July 22nd) but I can't find him on Mowery's site under any of those names. -- Ted Wright 7/22/2014 5:15pm -- [I received a confirmation that the funeral was indeed July 22nd and that the name of the 24 year old CHS 2009 graduate was Kenneth Blake Kaiser -- 7/23] Sample Ballots for August 26th Primary Election Runnoff -- Ted 7/22/2014

Lance West's First As Superintendent / Tentative 2014-15 Budget / Life Insurance To Be Provided
FYI -- I had the phone (371-1901) at the Newspaper Museum disconnected today. I had been pondering that change for over a year as I am rarely there and was getting mostly "junk" calls on the message recorder anyway. A 60% jump in this month's AT&T bill made it an easy decision. I will update a few key pages to remove that number online ... I've been posting it less in anticipation of this day ... but it will remain on 1000's of older cvilleok pages from the past 11+ years. Email has always been the best tool for me anyway (wrightted@aol.com or twright@collinsville.k12.ok.us). And I rarely post my cell phone online (918-798-1804) as I don't want all the "junk" calls there that come from internet search/solitations. -- Ted Wright -- June 30, 2014
