Friday thoughts

Just a couple of thoughts from downtown today.
* One, two items have just been posted on COLUMBIA TALK.
* Two, there is a traffic nightmare downtown. McMinn's Asphalt is repaving an area of North Third
Street, south to Route 441, to repair the previous asphalt they laid back in the summer. Perhaps had they done the job right the first time, there would be no need to today's repair issue. By the way, before we go bashing Columbia Borough, it was a PennDOT project.
* Three, the new owners of the Hotel Locust/Columbia are working on improvements, including a new paint job out front.
* Four, earlier this week, masons were laying some brick work around the bus stop near the police station. The new brick work includes a section designating the avenue by the police station as Market Street.
* Five, work is also continuing on the new parking lot near the market.

RIP William Meyers

COLUMBIA TALK has received word of the untimely passing of former Columbia Police Sergeant William Meyers. Meyers died last night in McVeytown. More information when it becomes available.
Meyers served on the police force from October 1974 through April 2007.

Last day at 438 Locust Street

Stop by tomorrow morning at the Daily Grind coffee shop and say best wishes to Don and Mandy Gallagher, who are selling the business. The new owners will also be there. I will post more on this tomorrow.

Attention local non-profits
