Coming soon - Advanced Auto Parts

Advanced Auto Parts will be moving into the space about to be vacated by Columbia Family Restaurant at the Columbia Plaza. 

It's baaack!

Or at least it was, until borough workers returned it to its rightful place. As was the case yesterday morning, someone had moved this picnic table onto a dock at Columbia River Park this morning.

This Friday's blue moon won't be blue at all

The trash goes into the cans, not next to them

An observant visitor to Columbia River Park submitted this photo of a bag of trash that was deposited next to the trash cans there. Trash is to be deposited into the cans, not next to them. Even so, this location is not a drop-off for one's household trash.

Fourth Street is much cleaner now

This afternoon, Columbia Spy noted that the 100 block of South Fourth Street is quite a bit cleaner, which is interesting, considering the street sweeper was reported to be out of service this week.  Previously, this block had been lined with trash and litter.

The photos above were taken today.  Below is a video showing the condition of the block at the beginning of the month:

And here's how it looked this past Sunday:

It's an uphill battle from Columbia to the Olympics

This gentleman was seen this morning trudging up the hill on Lancaster Avenue, near Glatfelter's. When asked why he was doing this, he replied, "No English." It turns out he is Chen Guan Ming, a Chinese rice farmer who is on his way to the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. More info can be found on his website HERE.

He was seen entering Little's Beverage before departing east on Route 462.

What's wrong with this picture?

An alert resident took this photo this morning at Columbia River Park. Is that really a picnic table on the dock? Why, yes, it appears to be.

Columbia Borough Police reportedly made them put it back shortly after this photo was taken.
