Jeremy Guest (2007 Collinsville Graduate) signed a National Letter of Intent to play baseball for Pratt Community College located in Pratt, Kansas. He signed sometime back in late June, but it appears that the head baseball coach (Jeff Brewer) will be unable to make the trip to Collinsville for a formal signing. The Pratt Beavers are members of the Jayhawk Conference.

Rogers County Sheriff Candidate
The following is from Cole Butler a 26 year veteran of the Tulsa Police Department. (Submitted by Julie Dermody 8/3/2007).

After much thought and consideration I want to announce my candidacy for Rogers County Sheriff. I am excited about the prospect of serving the citizens of Rogers County as sheriff, an office that carries a tremendous weight of responsibility.

I have worked in law enforcement over half my life with twenty-six years (and counting) service as a Tulsa Police Officer, a career choice I made because it gave me the opportunity to serve and protect the public.
Far from being "burned out" by twenty-six years of serving the community, I still look forward to going to work and continue to enjoy what I do as a police officer. At this point in my professional life, the most comfortable choice would be for me to continue my responsibilities in Tulsa until I retire.

However, the easiest decision is not always the right one. After much thought, I have come to realize that my experiences have prepared me for greater responsibility and service and I am ready to take on both.
Those of us in law enforcement understand that doing our job is based mostly on common sense and as any good patrol officer knows, this common sense continues to develop along with the skills that improve in the course of responding to daily calls for service. With time, these skills should become more refined as the officer is exposed to thousands of varied challenges through the years. Different assignments throughout my career have prepared me to manage the challenges I would confront as your sheriff.

As a twenty-three year Rogers County resident, I am not willing to continue with the status quo in the sheriff's office. To become a department known for its responsiveness to citizens, qualified leadership is essential, as the sheriff must provide a good example to his deputies. As the sheriff goes-so goes his office.

My goal is to train, develop, and equip the most professional and responsive department Rogers County has ever employed. The office of sheriff is a twenty-four hour-a-day commitment.

The citizens pay for a full-time sheriff and that is who the taxpayers will elect with a vote for Cole Butler.
