Hannah's Helping Hand "Beauties" Raised Funds Saturday
You could probably question the "beauty" or hormones of the contestants in the WoMANless Beauty Pageant Saturday, but not the laughter and smiles of the crowd that helped raise money for Hannah's Helping Hands. This was the 3rd annual event and was held in the vacant Ostrander's Appliance building before a packed crowd. I have just a sample of the "beauties" shown here. -- Ted

Hannah's Helping Hands, Inc. — Our Mission
We are a non-profit 501(c)3 organization providing financial assistance to families with children battling cancer. Many families need help with the most basic needs for their families during this fight for their child’s life. Some must leave work for months and even years to care for their sick child and the financial loss can be devastating. Our goal is to help as many families being treated locally as possible. We help with basic needs such as gas & food cards, groceries, wigs, utility payments, prescriptions, medical co-payments, rent/housing as well as other expenses. Our referrals come from doctors, nurses and staff at a local children’s hospital in Tulsa as well as our local communities.
OK To Recycle Phone Books & Cardboard

Collinsville Lirary Update (from Susan Babbitt): Great news from Abitibi Paper Retriever – I know our bins say what we can’t take, but you can put phone books and cardboard in our bins. Now that we take all commodities, these items can be placed in our paper bins. Most of our other markets do paper and cardboard together. -- Thanks again for offering this recycling option to your community. -- 9/20/2011
Jr. Hi Update
September 16, 2011

The Collinsville Cardinal Jr. Hi Football Teams traveled to Tulsa Bishop Kelley this past Thursday night for a Metro Lakes Conference showdown.

The Cardinals’ 7th grade scored on the first play from scrimmage and smothered the Comets tail all night long. All phases of the game, offense, defense and the kicking game, (3 PATs, 1 onside kick recovered), continued to display great improvement. There was a tremendous amount of excitement on the sideline as the Cardinals put 24 points on the scoreboard and did not allow a score from the Comets. Cardinals win 24-0.The 7th grade improves its record to 2-0. No injuries were reported.

The 8th grade played a tough, hard nosed, smashed mouth, contest.
The offense of the Cardinals could not finish its drives in the zone. There were several times the Cardinals moved the ball well, but stalled due to mistakes and a stubborn defense the Comets put up.
The defense played well, but was on the field too many times during the slugfest. Comets win 14-0. One injury was reported.

The 9th grade played hard and show great signs of a promising Cardinal football team in the near future. At the end of the game, the Cards came up just short in a 21-14 contest. The players agree that we must “circle our wagons” and expect more from ourself for next weeks contest.
The 9th grade Cardinals have been plagued by the injury bug the past few days. Houston Hall, Justin Kothe, Ryan Haymaker, and now Shawn Koscheski have been placed on the injury reserve list. Hopefully these players will return soon.

The Cardinals host conference rivalry Tahlequah next Thursday, September 22, @ 5:00 at Sallee Field.
