The recovery from the Dec. 2007 ice storm continued well into 2008 (as 2007's top story spanned years). I'm going with the new 4-land bridge and East Gateway Main Street as 2008's top story based on the scale of the change to the community. The 2-block streetscape improvement project downtown was also a major 2008 story. The resurgent CHS football program with a 9-2 record and a return to the playoffs for the first time in many years was big (especially on the new all-weather turf at Sallee Field). Too many other sad & happy 2008 stories to mention individually. Here hoping that Collinsville's 2009 will be a good one (& your's also). Happy New Year!
