About Town

This week's photos from around Columbia . . .



Bikers from several motorcycle clubs attended the funeral of Tim Williams on Saturday morning at Holy Trinity Church. He was a Life Member of the Thunderbird Motorcycle Club.

His obituary is HERE.

About 30 bikes belonging to visitors lined up in the lot.
(Holy Trinity Church is on the right.)

Burial was at Holy Trinity Cemetery.

Visitors lined up to pay their respects.

 Relaxation's Transportation - Says it right there.

Sign in the alley

 Where did that come from?

 It sprang up recently - and suddenly - at the intersection of Franklin Street and Franklin Road. The previous structure at this location burned down a few years ago.

 Out on Purple's Lane- Foam was found in the water here on Friday.

 Supposedly, fish were killed here due to exposure to the chemical foam from a fire department training exercise at Columbia High School.

 In other news, looks like things at this outfall have fallen apart.

Here too.
