Michael Paul Kelley, the husband of Jennifer Marie Kelley and son-in-law of Sam and Mary Francis of Collinsville, Oklahoma, graduated July 19, 2007 from the Army Charlie Company 3Rd Battalion 47 Infantry at Fort Benning, Georgia.

Basic Combat Training is an extremely rigorous, demanding, and proven process that transforms dedicated volunteers into proficient Soldiers.

Collinsville Indian Ed. (July 23, 2007)

The Oklahoma Legends went to Nationals in Lawrence, Kansas, last week. These girls worked very hard and came in 9th out of 58 teams. They are ranked 9th in the nation. We are very proud of these girls. The picture of the 2 girls are Might Mouse (Kristina Shearer) and Butch (Kassidy Murphy), these 2 girls are from Collinsville. We also picked up 2 other Collinsville girls to play with us Allysa and Paige Wilson. The girls had a good time and played hard. They came home in 9th with battle wounds, but are very proud of how well they did.

Way to go Legends.

Carolyn Jensen (one proud fan of all of these girls)

PS - Keep an eye on the 4 girls from Collinsville because Ted will be covering Collinsville School Softball I am sure. They will represent Collinsville Softball well.
