Several units responded to a water rescue call on Sunday:
A canoe reportedly capsized near the York County side of the the Route 30 Bridge, about four piers out.
A family of four was rescued on the Wrightsville side.
The news story is HERE.
PA State Police responded to the incident, also.
Time for this fence to come down.
A former councillor said that several years ago, Columbia Borough entered into an agreement with the cottage owner: He would maintain the ground if he could put up the fence. The area beyond is still public. As a matter of fact, it is technically the first block of Locust Street, and it borders the Susquehanna River. It is unclear at this point whether the agreement was written or verbal, or whether any record exists at all, other than the mists of memory.
Why is this individual, who does not even live in Columbia Borough, permitted to block public land here?
A concerned citizen submitted this photo and the two following of the Avenue H parking lot.
The photos were taken on May 9. The metal rule shown is 16" long.
And yet the borough was handing out quick tickets to property owners for high grass during this time.

The good news is that someone tried to dispose of the flags properly.
The bad news is they didn't take them off the sticks first.

The reader also submitted this photo of a building at the same intersection, which was once an umbrella factory and later Becker's Potato Chip Factory, as seen below. Currently, there are plans to convert the building into a hotel.
