Now that the Columbia Water Company upgrade is complete, it's time to move this stuff off of Heritage Drive so that the road can be paved. We're going to need the space for parking, now that Columbia Crossing is open and company's coming this summer.

  1. Cheers to the people who threw the cig. butts in a liquid fillled jug. I hear all kinds of phonies harp on about patriotism or Columbia pride. Many of whom are filthy litterbugs, this includes cigarette butts. How can one have utmost pride in a town or country, then turn it into a shithole? Guess my rant is due to seeing trash all over the ground. Some areas worse than others.

    1. Disposing of butts that way is actually a very good idea.

  3. Excellent points regarding the Heritage Road and Columbia Water Company. That mess is horrible that close to the "newly opened" trailhead. I'm actually very surprised that the Water Company has let it go this far. They did such an incredibly good job blending the new construction with the old style Historic brickwork that borders Walnut St. Which really is appealing to visitors. Now all they need to do is spend a small amount of time and resources cleaning all that mess up. I actually think the Water Company should at the very least regrade that portion of road back to the condition it was in before construction. It is terrible now and 110% due to all the construction vehicles. I'm sure there are plans to do all of this, but why wait? Step up and at least clean it up and spread some stone NOW.

  6. I remember painting the Mount Bethel fence back in the late 70's as part of a work/school program. Why not have people who need to fill their community service hours do projects like this? Or maybe cleaning up the litter around town?
