On Tuesday, an ORCA employee, Columbia Borough Police, and a few bystanders helped catch a domestic goose at River Park.
Here's the culprit, shortly before apprehension. He was tame but kept trying to elude capture.
Safely caged, he was placed in a waiting vehicle.
Usually, the trolley is almost empty, but this group of ladies climbed aboard at Hinkle's the other day.
Suddenly, Columbia has another bed & breakfast, this one at 1102 Locust. Problem is, there's no breakfast being served, from what we're told. The other problem is that no zoning variance has been granted for this kind of use. In other words, the business is operating illegally. A certain borough official reportedly went rogue again and told the owners they're OK to operate a B&B there anyway. The B&B has been in operation at least since Memorial Day and has been occupied every weekend since, according to sources. Supposedly, a written work-around will be developed at an upcoming meeting. Neighbors are NOT happy.
Here's the contact info for the B&B. Columbia Spy saw four vehicles with New Jersey license plates parked at the house on Saturday.
The above contact information is posted on this Black Olive placemat (lower left corner).
All those parking spaces, and yet . . .

A truck came by and dumped stones.
Here's the result. By the way, don't tamper there. (Read the sign.)

Todd Stahl sent the following three photos. He writes:
"The basketball nets at Rotary Park were in disrepair and needed replaced. I made contact with officials regarding the replacement of nets. Today [Friday, June 8], personnel from Columbia Highway Department replaced both nets at Rotary Park.
Thank you to the Borough of Columbia Highway Dept for taking timeout of their schedule to replace the nets."

Artwork at the police station
No, they're not some sort of alien pods.
They are concrete casts made from metal molds.
The casts, which were made by participants, will be transported to the Chesapeake Bay area.
The cavities will provide habitats for oysters and the like.

Too bad other vehicles can't park there.
But alas, that's not possible right now at the park that tries to be all things for all people.
