70 Years Ago -- From Aug. 16, 1945
"The Collinsville News" --

Collinsville celebrated way into the night, Tuesday, as President Truman released the news that Japan had surrendered unconditionally. History's most destructive war was over except for the formalities.

A ceremony is planned here for VJ Day (the day of the signing of the formal surrender terms.) A parade and a thanksgiving meeting will be conducted at Perry Park.

On Wednesday morning the announcement came over the radio that gasoline rationing was abolished.


The vocal student section at the CHS volleyball games Tuesday August 25th contributed to the come from behind varsity win over Tahlequah at the CUE gymnasium (25-18, 19-25, 17-25, 25-13, 16-14). The 7th grade lost 25-14,16-25, 13-15. The 8th grade won 25-8, 27-17. Photos later ... I am still at least a week behind -- Ted 11pm Tuesday 8/25/2015
Aug. 24th Update: I received a lot of information this weekend from Kathleen Morrow which pre-dates the Cooper Ranch when it was her Ellingwood relatives' Lazy E ranch. Not sure when I will have time to select some of that to present here on cvilleok. -- Ted

I normally don't give free advertising for commercial activities ... but this one caught my attention for historical reasons: The Historial Cooper Ranch at Highway 20/75 will be auctioned September 2, 2015, starting at 12:11pm. There will be open houses Sunday Aug. 23 & 30 from 2-4pm. For more info and photos see www.chuppsauction.com -- Ted 8/17/2015

- I only have bits and pieces of the history of this place which maybe someday I can expand and share .... but not in the near future. I If anyone would like to email me their knowledge of Cooper Ranch, that would be helpful (wrightted@aol.com)

Cardinal Football -- JHI Update -- 8-24-15

The Collinsville Cardinal junior high football teams (7,8,9) had a tough scrimmage this past Friday night at Sallee Field. After just one week of practice the Cardinals had a chance to go against someone besides ourselves. Bartlesville had some really good players on both sides of the ball and the Cardinals had to fight and scrap for every inch we gained. The defense played tough all night.
After the scrimmage the Quarterback Club fed our players and coaches a hot dog and a cold drink. We want to thank the parents for this treat. Also the QB club is providing each player a spirit pak. The t-shirt and shorts looks great. We will wear this to each game. Thanks QB club.
This was a good tune up for our season opener. The Cardinals will play Oologah next Tuesday, September 1st at Oologah. Games begin at 5pm.
On game day next week the 7th and 8th grade will report to the dressing room at 3:30. We will bus players to Oologah. After each game players may ride home with their parents only.
The 9th grade will report back to the dressing room at 5pm and bus to Oologah. Players should ride the bus home with the team and turn in game uniforms.
The Oologah Mustangs are expecting a great season after a summer of hard workouts. The word in the coaching world is that the Mustangs dominated Catoosa in their scrimmage Friday night.
Meet the Cardinals was another great success. We would like to thank the QB Club and Cheerleaders for this great event. It was also great to hear the Cardinal Band at Meet the Cardinals, you sound great.

James Stellfox finished 12th and Zac Sellers finished 14th today at the Bacon Wings Cross Country Meet. The team ran very well and finished 7th in a competitive field. Very proud of the boy's effort.

The new and improved School Way app is up and running. It looks quite a bit different but all the basic features are the same. I am in the process of updating and customizing everything and adding many new elements to the app. A couple of new features is my ability to customize the contents, add pictures etc. I have added a few new folders entitled, Upcoming Events, Student Life photos and Cardinal Sports photos. I will add team pictures and some individual pictures periodically as well as some student life pictures. The school calendar and lunch menu is now up to date also.
