FOCAS Thank You
Collinsville Residents,
The Friends of the Collinsville Animal Shelter thank you very much for entering our name in the KOTV Community Spirit Award. The $1,000 will go a long way in helping our lost, abused, and abandoned pets. FOCAS attended an adoption event at Atwoods last Saturday where we found great homes for two of our puppies. Stop by the Ward-Wiseman Animal Haven for a tour from one of our friendly volunteers. We are planning a Sadie Hawkins fund raising event for February 29th. Make plans to take your "favorite feller" out to lunch or dinner in Collinsville and support The Ward-Wiseman Animal Shelter and Collinsville at the same time. Details to be announced soon! -- Susan Babbitt (2-12-2008)

Comedy of Errors Book Group

Comedy of Errors Book Club at the Collinsville Library is happy to invite you to join us on Tuesday, February 19 in the Collinsville Library Meeting room at Noon. Bring your lunch and Friends of the CV Library will provide coffee and tea.

Our guest speaker is author, Lou Dean. Dean grew up in Osage County Oklahoma. She graduated from Ponca City High School and attended Oklahoma State University. She is a twenty year award winning writer with countless articles in print. Among her credits are Family Circle, Guideposts, McCalls, Ladies' Home Journal, Angels on Earth, Highlights for Children, Scouting, and Dog World Magazine.

Her first book "Angels in Disguise", was part of the cover story in December 1996 People Magazine and the book was a 1999 nominee for the prestigious Colorado Blue Spruce Award. An excerpt from Angels In Disguise won article of the year at the 2000 Western Heritage Awards in Oklahoma City's Cowboy Hall of Fame. Her first novel Reaching for the Reins, won "Top Hand Award" from the Colorado Authors' League for young-adult book-length fiction in 2001.

Lou Dean divides her time between a mountain retreat in northwest Colorado and a place on the Arkansas River in Oklahoma.

Pie Auction

Hi Ted,

What a cool website. I recently found your site linked from the chamber of commerce website and I love all the information it offers. Under the news section I would love to see you add KFAQ I am a news reporter and anchor there and we get calls to our morning show from Collinsville so I know there are listeners in the area. We carry FOX news for national news and KFAQ and AP for local. Please give it a try. As a fellow resident of Collinsville I would love to see it added to your site! We hear so much talk about South Tulsa, Bixby and Broken Arrow I try to throw in as much about our wonderful town as I can!

Love the website and will be visiting often!

You asked for us to let you know how we found your web site. My daughter, Darla Davis lives in Killeen, Tx.. After the ice storm she found your site and sent me an e-mail telling me to check it out. I really enjoy looking at it. I was in the Red Cross Shelter for almost a week and I am in a couple of the pictures. I think that you are doing a wonderful job keeping us informed with the events in our city.

I have lived in Collinsville since 1946 and raised my family here. I subsribed to the Collinsville News for several years. I am glad to find your web because the paper has really gone down hill and doesn't give much news. Keep up the good work.

I saw your request as to how I discovered the news page and what I thought of it. First, I “Googled” Collinsville OK News. I was actually looking for a newspaper, but stumbled upon this web page.

How do I like it? Love it. It gives me more information than I was looking for. It keeps me updated on what is going on in my town. I like that you include the clean up, city council, local sports and overall information about town.

Keep up the good work.

Just Curious: if you are a new viewer in 2008 ... send me an email and let me know how you discovered and what you like or dislike. -- Ted Wright -- Feb. 11, 2008 (Comments from "regulars" are always welcome also!)
FYI: I've added CHS track & soccer schedules to the Feb. & March events calendars this week. I've rehosted the CHS Alumni pages and added Home Run Club information. I updated the Education Foundation page today. Work continues on 2008 CHS graduate pages which you won't see online until May. -- Ted Wright 2/12
