 New street signs?

 This flag is hanging at a house on the 200 block of South 8th street. It's accompanied by the Mission 22 flag shown below.

According to the Mission 22 website the organization is "dedicated to healing America’s veterans when they need it most — right now. We offer treatment for Post-Traumatic Stress and Traumatic Brain Injury, substance abuse and all of the issues veterans are facing today."

 It's that time.

HARB approved signs/brackets for Columbia Life Network and Cooper's Comics (shown below). Both are in Columbia's historic district. Some business owners in the historic district skate around HARB with impunity.

 Ready for some serious sweeping -
Some things in Columbia Borough get swept under the rug.

Always use your head in whatever fashion you see fit . . .

Just be careful when doing so.

Under the Veterans Memorial Bridge

A crew of four from Pickering, Corts & Summerson (PCS) inspected the bridge.

A diver appeared to be doing underwater inspections of the bridge piers.

According to their website: "Pickering, Corts & Summerson (PCS) delivers award winning multi-discipline civil engineering services from our four office locations in Pennsylvania and New Jersey."

 Smith's deck is open.

 The weeds are gone. Now if only the litter could go, too.

And last but not least, a comment to Columbia Spy from a reader in Ephrata:
I went to Columbia today and took a friend to support the small businesses who have been so hard hit for the last 3 months and ran into your “meter freaks”.... I have heard how these meter people literally jump on a car the minute the time expires.... well - I just received your $10 “Welcome to Columbia” for the sake of 3 minutes. Not like I was gone for an hour and a half on my quarter...... I guess you don’t want people coming to shop in your town and to help it flourish..... I won’t be back.

I agree why do we need meters Mt Joy toke all there meters out why do we need them just think how .much money we could save if we did not have to pay the meter guy there is not that much in the down town area and then when people do come to town we give them a ticket we .must at least have free parking on Saturdays

We need to at least have free parking on Saturdays if you want to have people come to town and shop
