Another letter writer cites inaccuracies in LNP reporting on Columbia and elsewhere


"I am tired of reading in the paper that a person from, say, Columbia is arrested for an incident that occurs in Columbia, and then when reading the article, being from Columbia, knowing the location is not in Columbia Borough, but maybe West Hempfield Township, Rapho Township or even Manor Township."

About Town

Recent pics from about town...



 Sign down!

 Man down!

 Here we go again.

 Jeeeez!

 Some sort of flag statement?

 Speaking of flags, would anyone salute this abomination?

Chauffeur-driven dogmobile

 Dusk

 This old farmhouse at Cloverton Drive and Kinderhook Road...

 ...has been condemned.

 Signs have been taped to the property...

 ...stating that it's an unlawful structure.

 ???

 Heritage Drive has been paved.

 A view from the Union Street end.

 House of Cutz has left the building.

 The former mattress store building at Front & Bridge is for sale.

 Like the sign says

 Just one problem - No roof!

 Off to the trail!

 Heron unintimidated by boaters

 A victim of the lug "nut" who's been loosening lugs around town?

 Pressure washing at 4th & Locust

 Trouble right here in River City?
"We've surely got trouble!
Right here in River City,
Right here!
Gotta figger out a way
To keep the young ones moral after school!
Trouble, trouble, trouble, trouble, trouble..."
- "Ya got Trouble" from The Music Man

 Showing off?
No. 
Vultures do this to dry and warm their wings and to get rid of bugs and bacteria.

 That's a lot of stick figures.

What could possibly go wrong?

 Long distance shot of a hot-air balloon dangling...a fish?

 Some folks take two parking spaces.
Fortunately, it was a Sunday.
Unfortunately, there were only a few spaces available.

 New sign?

 Columbia loves JLG lifts.
Keep an eye on that tanker truck on the far right, going up Locust.

 There it is, on its way up 441. Instead of using the Route 441 bypass, it wound its way through town via the usual route - right onto Locust, left onto Third - crowding the intersection in the process and rattling homes along the way. 

 At the church/business/...residence? at 6th & Chestnut

In St. Pete's parking lot...
