Large Transformer Slows Collinsville (Highway 20) Traffic
I had a call from Jay Enloe Tuesday that a big transformer would be moving through Collinsville (from Oologah to Sperry) but that it was delayed. Missed it downtown today but it was still "parked" on West Main just before the end of the four-lane. It was still backing up west bound traffic there at about 1:45pm today (Wednesday). -- Ted Wright 6/26/2013

"Clean Up" On South 12th St.
I'm not sure exactly when it was cleaned up, but just noticed earlier this week that the "nusiance" property on South 12th Street looked vastly improved. The city and neighbors have pushed for years to improve the appearance in that area.
