Ferdie to Bob

    Dear Bob, here are some photos of my life here on the campus of Concordia Seminary. I love kids, working with the grounds crew, swimming, playing with my dog friends, and especially my own family people.

    Diane, When IDOT Re-built Rt. 159, they almost did as much work on the storm drainage as they did on the road. It was a big benefit to Collinsville and the property near the Highway. I'm glad it is working. Go down the street and you will see all of the storm drains. It was estimated in the millions that they helped Collinsville. Ask the Street Dept managers.

    There is no doubt that work helped Collinsville immensely.


    Thank my distant cousin Congressman Jay Hoffman. I think helped IDOT make the decision not to by-pass Collinsville, and go on the East side of town. A proposal was in the works to divert East near the Catsup bottle, work its way North to East Country Land and re-connect with Rt. 159 by the Interstate. Larry Trucano, Jay Hoffman, and the residents of Collinsville Township lobbied against it. Some were in favor because it would have opened up more land for subdivision development on the East side of the city. At least these are rumors that I heard.

    I'm glad they didn't go east of town, we've have had a huge mess with the latest storms. As it is, the areas where residents live now don't have as much worry over big rains
