|New Fence At Park
|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.
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
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.
