Photos from around town...
Under the protection of the Black Panther
Detour signs sprang up along Route 462 last week.
The detour will redirect traffic due to a portion of Route 441 being closed off between Plane and Mill Streets.
These white vans have been zipping around the area recently.
According to "the internets," the vans are performing 3-D mapping for Apple.
They were stationed last week at the self-storage facility along Front Street.
Whatever's up there, birds find it fascinating.

Welcome to Columbia
Hoppers after an all-night binge?
No, not a bombed-out building in Syria.
It's what's left of a duplex at Locust Street and Bank Avenue.
Workers are demo-ing it to make way for a proposed apartment building.
A lot of working by hand is involved.
They took advantage of the weather on Saturday to get some work done.
Last we heard, Brookline Builders might be moving into the former Bigler building at 208-210 Locust.
Some of Columbia's exquisite architecture from times past
Here's a close-up of the above.
As it was in 2010: the entrance walkway to 254 Locust Street
And how it looks today. Another historic building going to hell.
Here's the old Columbia Telephone Company building (or is it "COLVMBIA")?
It's now part of Stover's at North 3rd and Avenue H.
Rivertowne Antique Center just got this new sign to replace the dilapidated one.
Skateboarding up hill
Tending the garden
This residence along Route 462 was recently rezoned to permit retreats periodically throughout the year.
The retreats will offer counseling for those who have had abortions.
A call came in for a brush fire on 7th Street on Saturday. Firefighters arrived to find smoldering mulch in the parking lot of the LGH facility.
They used a fire extinguisher...
... and "outened" the fire.
If they ever need water, here it is at the "secret" water storage tanks.
Wonder if the video security system caught who stole this sign.
Arriving soon: Spring.
(We're still holding out hope that it's coming.)
Along the yellow line
No parking here to corner?
Along the yellow line - again
