A tangle of wire challenged those on their way to the trail on Thursday.

This guy helped straighten things out.

There are a million photos of this bridge, so why not one more? 
(By the way, a bridge rehabilitation project is scheduled to start next year.)

It's that way!

Gas prices are high. How much for a fill-up?

The nitrogen tank at Floyd's of Leadville on Bridge Street was removed on Monday.

The tank was installed in January 2020.

The nitrogen was used to freeze raw hemp as part of a process to make CBD oil.

Floyd Landis, of cycling fame, is a principal of the Colorado-based company, which sells hemp-derived products throughout the U.S. 

Although the area in which the property is located is not zoned for such a facility, the Columbia Borough Zoning Hearing Board voted 4-1 to grant a variance in September 2019.

A resident at the meeting noted that the intent of the district was "to encourage a mix of entertainment, restaurant and other commercial uses that will take advantage of proximity to the river and the downtown"and questioned whether the facility meets "the letter and spirit of the defined purpose of this zoning district."

Despite removal of the tank, the facility is still in operation.
