The CHS softball team has already begun their season with a 9-1 varsity win over Barnsdall Aug. 7th. The JV also won 5-1 at Barnsdall. The photo above shows the Lady Cards practicing just after the team photo session Wednesday (which I was not informed of). I'll try to get a team photo before their home opener next Tuesday (5pm Aug 15) against Cleveland . -- Ted

Tri-County Fair Entertainment Update
The band Lost Highway featuring Collinsville’s own Roy Weathers will be performing at the street dance on August 24th for the Tri-County Fair. They will be taking the stage at 7 pm. You can check them out on their website:

Collinsville’s Square Dancing Club will be performing during the intermission at approximately 8pm.

All day Saturday there will be displays of antique engines set up near the Legion/Veteran’s Building.
The school zone flashing lights will start on Thurs. Aug. 16th. The flashing lights will be on from 7 am to 8:10 am and again at 2:15 to 2:45 pm. This zone is directly in front of the high school. We also have a one way double entrance on the East side of the campus and a double lane exit on the West side. Parents who will drop off or pick up their child will need to pull into the south lane in front of the bell tower. No cars are allowed in the bus lanes as this creates safety concern with students loading and unloading. The bus lanes are on the East side of the building running north and south.
School starts at 7:50 am and ends at 2:25 pm. Parents please call Kelli at 371-4802 if your child is not going to be at school. Thanks, Mr. Slagle, Principal (8/8/2007)
