As director of the Collinsville Township Senior Citizens Center, I am always impressed with the Collinsville High School Student Council members who sponsor our annual Senior Prom. We recently had a night of dinner, dancing and companionship as the young adults hired a caterer, a DJ, and decorated our Senior Center. After approximately 120 senior citizens enjoyed the evening, the Student Council members cleaned our building and returned it to its original state. Student Council sponsors Kyle Gordon and Alice Carrol supervised the entire event.
The purchase of $853,000 worth of solar panels by the Collinsville Area Recreation District for Splash City, which can break even on savings in 101 years, is and forever will be a classic case of government in action.
Once again BND letter writer Frankie Seaberry proves that liberalism is an incurable mental disease. Couple that with her obvious racism and you come up with her childish attacks on letter writer Leon Anderson. She not only insults the intelligence of all but liberals of her ilk, but she attacks a man who served this country in the military. To this day he sticks up for America and does not want to see her turned into another Third World cesspool.
In reality this equation might be more complex than that. In the season when hundreds of newly graduated college students enter the ocean of the real world, many may simply end up being that “plenty of fish in the sea.”
Attention Matt Klosterman, superintendent Belleville School District 118: We need to stop rushing into more brick, mortar and steel. Our public schools are far too much in debt for any more construction, and to add to that the giving away of a perfectly good high school, all for only $1.
After spending Saturday afternoon at the Art on the Square, I was amazed at the results of such a wonderful event. I can’t imagine the hours spent coordinating all the different factions that make the show what it is.
We observed Memorial Day with parades, barbecues, picnics and social gatherings with friends and relatives, but it is a day that means much more. It is a day to remember our brave service men and women who paid the ultimate price with their own lives for the freedoms that we enjoy.
The folks at Splash City in Collinsville are all pumped up over how their solar panel project is already paying off. The panels were installed in March, and Splash City saved $700 on its April electric bill.
BND letter writer Leon Anderson is forever determined to have the last word. We’ll tolerate such tenacity since we did miss his snide letters when he stopped writing to pout after Barack Obama won the election for presidency. I guess he’ll pout again after Hillary Clinton wins in 2016.
