About Town - May 8, 2022

Recent photos of Columbia

(Click/tap on photos to see larger, sharper images.) 

These bridge lights on the Veterans Memorial Bridge were installed in spring/summer of 2014 and dedicated in September 2014, as Columbia Spy reported HERE. That was also the first summer when massive numbers of mayflies collected on the bridge, particularly on the lights.

At the April 26, 2022 Columbia Borough Council meeting, however, Mayor Lutz implied that the lights weren't really the cause of the problem. Some officials have even floated the idea that the increase in mayflies indicates a healthy river. But the LNP article HERE published that same summer states that the Susquehanna should be declared "impaired."

The borough is looking at ways to solve the problem, as Columbia Spy reported HERE.

Trolley sighting - but it's not Columbia's. It's the Rivertowne Trolley, owned and operated by Andre Underhill. Columbia's trolley is up for bid on Municibid. The high bid, as of Sunday afternoon, is $17,401. The high bidder is currently d*********2. 
Hmmm, who could it be?

Up, up and away!


Give reptiles a chance.
(But watch out for those river turtles. They'll bite your fingers off.)

A couple of hundred feet from Columbia River Park, where Canada geese and mallards hang. What could go wrong?

(Attendants were wearing protective booties and spraying vehicle tires.)
