Almost ready

Finishing touches are being put on the outside of the new construction at the entrance to Columbia High School. School opens Tuesday.

Bee-hive of activity

The campus of Columbia High School was busy tonight. Seventh and eighth grade parents and students were inside attending the Middle School Orientation program. Outside, in addition to the football team, the band and cheerleaders were busy working on routines for Friday's opener.

Two-a-days end

The 2010 Crimson Tide football team took advantage of Columbia's late start to the school year, by getting a few extra two-a-day practices in, which ended tonight.  The Tide opens its season Friday on the hill against Eastern.

Shirts for the Tide

The Columbia varsity football team received new t-shirts tonight after practice from Rick Breault and Jim Smith, purchased by friends of the community and Wilco Electric. Breault works for PPL.

An interesting discovery

While heading up to football practice this afternoon, I made this interesting discovery under the Route 30 bypass on the high school hill.

Train rolls through

A special Norfolk Southern passenger trained, with a large number of historic cars and engines rolled through Columbia this morning around 11 a.m., en route from Washington to Harrisburg.

Cleaning out

For the past few weeks, the Strube building, which was subject to a federal and state government for illegal dumping, in the 200 block of Locust Street is being cleaned out. Also noticed a few doors up, a minority grocery store in the former Motter's Hardware has also closed.

A new coat

Borough highway workers were busy the last two days putting a new coat of asphalt on the 1000 and 1100 blocks of Grinnell Avenue.
