Each Tuesday you may pick up the book for the next month. We are stretching our selves in 2009 by trying several types of literature non-fiction to fantasy. The best thing about our group is we do not always agree and have great fun disagreeing.

2 Massive cvilleok.com Projects In Progress: Senior Pages & Individual Photo CDs
the small gap between fall sports and winter sports,|
I am trying to finalize my plans for building a senior page for each 2009 CHS graduate. As part of that massive effort (that has actually been in progress for years as I have photographed those active in sports and activities) I will soon begin my annual search through my photo archives.
A fallout of that search is collecting individual photos (for CDs) for requested students. Having done the seniors' pages since 2004 I am always amazed at the number of students and parents that seem unaware of the annual process so will try to provide more detail in the next few weeks. I am also considering a meeting with each individual senior prior to releasing the pages online May 1st. No activity consumes more of my time each year than these two efforts.. -- Ted Wright -- Nov. 20, 2008
|The senior pages are free to the students as long as I get enough advertisers ...so it is always useful to me to have my cvilleok.com viewers [an average of 1400 visitors per day so far this November] to let the Collinsville advertisers know that you see their ads on cvilleok.com and appreciate their support. See prices (below) for individual CDs. -- Ted|

|Individual CDs are not just for seniors ...|
Photo CDs (Tentatively) Requested So Far in
the order received ... (11/20/2008) ... the final deadline before I start the
search will likely be Dec. 22. The majority of requestors so far have been moms
and grandmas but students may request their own.|
I still have two CDs from last year that were never picked up or paid for so will be more strict on collecting $20 deposits this year before beginning the search.
The basic price for individual photo CDs is $40 for all photos from 2008-09 sports and other activities. The cost for previous years is $10 per year with a full priced 2008. I may adjust the price a bit for students in fewer activities (like interior lineman who have fewer football photos for example). The photos are full-sized and un-edited (i.e. some football & gym game photos may be very dark but can be corrected with a photo editor). Some students will end up with hundreds of photos on their CD and there is no way to correct all but I will offer a few selected image edits after you have reviewed the CD. An early version of CDs will likely be available in February (for $5 extra) but the final version of CDs (at least for seniors) are not completed until a few days after graduation night.
Again, I only do this complete (2003-2008) archive search one time each year so if you miss the deadline you have to wait another year. When requesting photo CDs it can really help me if you provide a list of activities and uniform numbers or band instruments, etc. for each year requested. If you have multiple kids there is no additional charge but I'll need additional names & numbers & grades, etc. -- Ted Wright
