Car Show

Snapped these pictures in the parking lot of Burning Bridge Antique Center. There were a number of old cars parked there, with visitors from all over the east coast, who were walking down Locust Street, heading to Golden Stories. The people were from Delaware, New Jersey, New York and Connecticut.

The ever changing 200 block of Locust Street

The 200 block of Locust Street is ever changing.
There are plans to open the Black Widow tattoo shop next to the Foresters. It will be Columbia's third "official" tattoo shop.
Also, the Spanish-American grocery store, which occupied the former Motter Hardware building, which COLUMBIA TALK, reported last week was closed, now has a for sign in front of the window.
A tad bit up the street, the ice cream shop and the antique shop are closed and both empty.
The "for sale" sign that was up at the Heritage Insurance Agency at Third and Locust streets, is now down.

Parl Rangers plan work details

Now that we're past summer's horrendous heat and unofficial end on Labor Day, the Columbia Park Rangers will again start work details.
