Will then build June's calendar before jumping back in sequence to about May 10th where I left off. Only when I catch up (which will speed up with school out), I will then start back on 2018 senior pages which have not been touched in months. Also note there will be no 2019 or beyond senior pages. -- Ted Wright 5/22/2018

If my quick math is correct ... today is the 119th anniversary of the first issue of "The Collinsville News" printed by W. L. Wright at the original Collinsville town site (May 11, 1899). The newspaper was published for it's first 88 years by 4 generations of the Wright family. The paper was sold in 1987 and continued into it's 115th year before publication ceased. If you add 15+ years of my web site, the Wright family has documented the history of Collinsville for more than a century. -- Ted Wright -- May 11, 2018
