Fake News -- Despite what is currently on Wikipedia for Collinsville and what just got printed in the Times Star newspaper today --- the first newspaper printed in Collinsville was "The Collinsville News" May 11, 1899 ... not the "Star" which showed up a few years later. I had the Chamber correct their web site recently when I saw it mis-stated that the first paper was the "Star" and they pointed me to Wikipedia as the source ... but I was not allowed to edit to correct it there. Now, the Library, in advertising my historic slide show June 14th, has repeated that mis-information in the printed news which can't be corrected. -- Ted Wright 5/25/2017

Collinsville Police Department would like to ask everyone to please do not dial 911 if your power is out. We understand that not having electricity is awful but we need the 911 lines to remain open for real emergencies. The Collinsville non-emergency line 918-371-1000 is an acceptable number to notify us that the power is out in your area but please do not call 911 to notify us. -- 5/19/2017

118 Years Ago (May 11, 1899) William Lincoln Wright (with help of his son F.A. Wright) published the very first issue of "The Collinsville News". The rest of the family was still in Ellsworth, Kansas, preparing for the move to Collinsville. 18 Years Ago (May 11, 1999) I opened the "Newspaper Museum In Collinsville" to mark the 100th anniversary of that newspaper. Just over 14 years ago (March 20, 2003) this cvilleok.com web site uploaded it first pages to the internet. -- Ted Wright -- May 11, 2017
