Enjoying the River Park on a nice day. No telling if they'll go uptown to Hinkle's, because there's no way you can tell, unless you follow them or take a survey. Guesswork, supposition, and wishful thinking don't provide accurate answers.
Cimarron Investments, LLC, which owns this property at 430 Walnut Street, recently entered into an open end mortgage and security agreement with Centric Bank, the details of which are posted HERE. Columbia News, Views & Reviews has posted this and similar business transactions HERE.
Also, the Columbia Water Company has been busy in the 400 block of Avenue H over the last week or two, running water lines to the building shown above.
Meanwhile, right next to Avenue H, there's also been recent activity at the 4th Street firehouse, as shown here and below.
But, as with this utility pole, it's all a numbers game.
In other news, here are a few photos of the 2019 Columbia Crimson Tide Baseball Team.

As the sign says. there's space available at the Columbia Plaza since Musser's Market left. Could the recent tax hike have been the final straw?
They're doing it again - dumping at the end of Wright Street and beyond, as shown here and below.
Here's one of many faded signs around town.

Different people want different things.
A new health center on Chestnut Street
Here's a longer view.
This is one of the new lights that were recently installed at Locust Street Park.

This alley, which runs from Florence Street to 9th is not named on Google Maps, so it might be one of Columbia's famous "private alleys." And yet it seems to be a public throughway.
