Gilcrease Visit By Middle School Students

Last Friday a group of 7th grade CMS students took a field trip to Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa. They were given a gallery tour followed by a short art class. The students really enjoyed the experience!

Senior Ads Available In CHS Yearbook
Dear Parent:

The Collinsville H.S. annual staff is offering you a chance to purchase a personalized advertisement in the 2014 yearbook for your student. These advertisements are one-fourth of a page and may contain a short personal message along with your favorite wallet-size photograph of your son or daughter. The cost is forty dollars (half the cost of a business ad!) For purchasing an ad or for further information, you will need to contact Mrs. Bowman (371-5905) or send this letter with the picture, personal message, and a $40 check (made out to CHS) to 2400 West Broadway. The money must be received by Monday, April 21.

Thank you, Mrs. Bowman (2/6/2014)

No March 4th City Election Required
As 3 Candidates Unopposed
* Mayor -- Bud York (2 Years)
* Ward III Commissioner -- Larry Shafer (4 Years)
* Ward IV Commissioner -- Gerald Garrett (4 Years)
If I'm reading the results of the Tulsa County Feb. 3-4-5 filings correctly, those above will take office in Collinsville (in May 2014 without the need for a March 4th election) -- Ted Wright 2/6/2014
Garrett will be taking the place of Dee Sink as Ward 4 city commissioner. Shaffer retains his Ward 3 position. Bud York will vacate the remaining 2 years of his Ward 2 term to take over as mayor from Herb Weaver. I assume the commission (in May) will have the option to either appoint or call for an election to fill York's Ward 2 vacancy. Brad Francis still has 2 years remaining on his Ward 1 term. -- Ted Wright 2/7/2014

This November 2007 photo is the only handy photo I could locate quickly for soon-to-be city commissioner Jerry Garrett (with wife Melanie & daughter Amy). I'll get a more up-to-date photo at the May 2014 swearing in for the new city commission. -- Ted 2/7/2014
This is a May 2008 photo of the then new city commissioner Bud York when he was first sworn in. Bud will become mayor in May 2014. Bud's dad (Neal) was a former multi-term Collinsville mayor.
Commissioner Larry Shafer (right) was sworn in (May 2012) along with Commissioner Brad Francis (left) and Mayor Hery Weaver (center). Shafer had taken over for Sherry (Davis) Doolin in January 2012.
