Some photos from around town today . . .
Some say the town is going to the dogs . . .
But actually it may be going to the arts. These paintings were being unloaded at The Arts @ Hinkle's along Locust Street this afternoon . . .
Meanwhile, at Front and Walnut . . .
Things were malfunctioning again. The railroad barricades activated randomly and interfered with the traffic signals, causing them to stay red in both directions simultaneously for about 30 seconds at a time. A pedestrian warned motorists of the malfunctions and helped direct traffic through the intersection. Finally, a Norfolk Southern employee arrived and fixed the glitch.
And finally, out along 462 just beyond the Columbia Plaza (heading east): This van, which is still parked along the highway, was sideswiped by another vehicle last night at about 3:30 a.m., according to a witness who lives nearby.
The takeaway is: Don't park along the highway.
