New Fence At Park Tennis Courts
The City of Collinsville has upgraded the fence around the tennis courts in City Park using a portion of the "healthy cities" grant (~$21K). The CHS tennis team was enjoying some pleasant November weather inside the new fence for practice this week before the next cold front arrives.
After the old poles and wiring was removed earlier this month, workers installed new poles and green coated fence wiring.
A few trees along the east fenceline of the tennis courts were removed to allow the new fence to be installed.
At first glance (driving down 19th Street yesterday) I thought the CHS football team (below) was on Sallee Field preparing for their 2nd round 5A football playoff game -vs- OKC Bipshop McGuinness this Friday (Nov. 22). Upon closer inspection I determined it was instead the CHS baseball team taking advantage of the dry field surface as well as the pleasant November weather as they prepare for their upcoming 2014 baseball season. It reminded me of my younger years when little league (& CHS varity) baseball games were played in the northeast corner of Sallee Field where the parking lot has been for many years. An occasional long homerun would reach the then grass of the football field. -- Ted Wright 11/19/2013
The second base bag was at the 30 yard line yesterday during the CHS baseball practice on Sallee Field yesterday. Coach Tony Reeder indicated their normal playing/practice field at the high school was still too damp from the recent rains and he didn't want to waste the great weather Monday.
City Crews Also Taking Advantage of Pleasant Weather Monday
The city electrical crew was busy hanging Christmas Green on the street lamp poles downtown (above) and the city fire department was sun drying hoses (below) in the parking lot adjacent to the fire station Monday afternoon. Temperatures were in the 70s over the weekend and high sixties Monday (Nov. 18th), but the forcast for Friday is 30s and perhaps freezing percipitation. We had had our first hard freeze in the previous week.
