Subject: Study: #9 Collinsville among best towns for raising a family

Hi Pam,

My name is Laura and I work at NerdWallet , a consumer advocacy website. I wanted to let you know about a study we just released that found the best cities in Oklahoma to raise a family in - and Collinsville came in at #9!

To compile this top ten list, we considered the following factors:

1. Public school rating
2. Median home value
3. Ongoing cost of homeownership
4. Median income
5. Economic growth

To learn more about how these towns made our list, check out the link below, which includes a detailed methodology. Please let me know if you would prefer a press release, I would be happy to send one.

Horse Trailer Hit & Run
On Friday September 27th at 7:20 pm I Brandi Reicheneker 24, was hit by by a speeding motorist. I was coming down 166th in Collinsville pulling my horse trailer with 2 horses headed to a barrel race when I saw a truck coming down a hill with smoke going everywhere from his tires being locked up. The driver Thomas Hinds 47, crashed into my trailer. The first horse was able to come out of the small escape door and had minor scrapes while the 2nd horse was trapped with its hind end on the hood of the truck. The 2nd horse was brought out 10 minutes later after local men removed the divider. She had a few minor scrapes, a cut on her forehead, and a bad cut on her left back leg that was nearly to the bone. Within 5 minutes of the accident the driver of the truck took off on foot. He was said to smell of alcohol and was slurring his words before he took off. He was found Saturday morning after he checked in the hospital.
