Zane played well the second round and able to make it to state next week in Tulsa at the Tulsa Country Club. Bailey woke up sick but still manage to play all 36 holes and missed qualifying for state by only one stroke. Real proud of him to continue to play. Jake also played well in warm and windy conditions. Cody just could not overcome his back problems. He played 13 holes before he had to withdraw because of the pain. Real proud of his effort. Patrick did the best he could and real proud of his effort, he also was a little sick.

Real proud of the effort of all 5 players and as you can see we almost had three make it to state instead of only one.

TULSA, OK - [April 30, 2013] - The Tulsa Health Department's Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP) is hosting Dress for the Occasion, a free teen pregnancy prevention workshop for teens and parents on Thursday, May 2.

The workshop will be held at the Rudisill Library, 1520 N. Hartford Ave., from 6 to 8 p.m. Parents and teens will have the opportunity to gather both separately and together for candid discussion about sexual health, "the talk," and preventing teen pregnancy. There will also be door prizes, giveaways and food for attendees.

Dress for the Occasion is being held in recognition of the twelfth annual National Day to Prevent Teen Pregnancy, which is May 1. The purpose of the National Day is to focus the attention of teens on the importance of avoiding too-early pregnancy and parenthood through an interactive online quiz.

On the National Day, teens nationwide are asked to go and take the National Day Quiz, which challenges them to think carefully about what they might do "in the moment" through a series of interactive scenarios. This year, for the first time, teens will be able to insert themselves and their friends directly into the quiz by creating personalized avatars (a graphical representation of the user).

Dress for the Occasion teen pregnancy prevention workshop is sponsored by the Tulsa Teen Pregnancy Prevention Coalition, Planned Parenthood of the Heartland, Tulsa Health Department, and Youth Services of Tulsa.

The Tulsa Health Department's Personal Responsibility Education Program specializes in empowering young adults to make proud and responsible decisions, as well as educating them about the dangers and risks associated with sexual activity. The goal of the program is to prevent teen births and sexually transmitted infections, including HIV. PREP works with schools in Tulsa County, especially those that have the highest teen birth rates, in an effort to influence change and increase education.

McTeacher Check To Wilson Elementary
Wilson teachers and staff participated in our annual McTeacher Night at McDonald's on Highway 20 April 2nd. McDonald's staff are always generous and giving in allowing us to work with them and raise funds for our school. During McTeacher Night, between the hours of 5:00 - 8:00 pm, Wilson Elementary received 20% of the total profits of all food sold, in-restaurant and drive-thru. We also received 100% of sales of apple and cherry pies donated for sale by McDonald's. P & K Equipment donated a John Deere Gator (remote-controlled tractor) to be given away. Raffle tickets were sold for the Gator, which was given away at McDonald's that evening. Wilson received 100% of the raffle ticket sales on the Gator. We want to thank McDonald's for their generosity in working with Wilson to raise funds, P & K Equipment for the donation of the Gator, and for Mr. and Mrs. Harry and Beverly Lossing for always working with us at Wilson to promote education. Wilson teachers and staff, along with the help of all who participated by eating some wonderful McDonald's food and bought raffle tickets for the Gator, raised a total of $2,598.00!! We are thankful to all who participated!!

Attention Parents -- A Letter Concerning Youth Behavior In Downtown / City Warning
To All Concerned Citizens: The City of Collinsville has had many complaints from downtown business owners concerning the behavior of some kids. Those kids caught using vulgar language; obscene, rude, and disrespectful behavior; riding bikes, skateboards, and unicycles on sidewalks; darting across streets; running out in front of cars and rolling over the hoods; climbing on top of heat and air units; or any other acts that put your children or someone else at risk of being injured will be given citations.

The City doesn't want to deter downtown business. Downtown Collinsville looks great. We've made thousands of dollars in improvements so more people will come downtown and enjoy it. But we also have an obligation to protect it and make sure it's a safe place for everyone to enjoy. It would be great if the kids would come downtown and have an ice cream or a coke and be respectful and courteous to others but this isn't happening so therefore we must take action to protect not only the children but those visiting and shopping downtown.

The City Park is a great place to ride bikes and skateboards. Again, a large amount of money has been invested in the Park to give the kids a great place to ride and play. I suggest everyone check it out.

I can assure you that kids that are behaving and not breaking laws won't be issued tickets, but those that are not abiding by the rules and laws of the City will be.

I'd like to thank all the kids, parents, teachers and other volunteers that came out Saturday morning to clean-up and beautify downtown. Also thanks to the students and volunteers that helped plant veggies and flowers at the Community Garden. There was a large crowd and the City appreciates the help.

Please continue to help us keep our downtown beautiful and safe.

The Collinsville Police Department will start issuing citations, Monday 4/29/13, for any students loitering downtown after school. Could you please put this on our website. (Per Terry Due) -- Melanie Garrett -- 4/26/2013 (2:45pm)
Ted Note: This is in response to an on-going issue including property damage (to buildings and cars) and concern for people stepping out of businesses with illegal skating boarding on the downtown sidewalks zipping by at the same time. This had been a problem for the Library for years but has migrated to the 11th and Main area most recently. Apparently some kids have chosen to ignore previous warning from police and merchants to be better behaved.
