What a comment!

In Everyday Living, Government, In Columbia, Opinions, Opportunities on June 2, 2015 at 1:16 pm

“Columbia’s lack of leadership, high taxes and crime, kills the hopes of the good people who live there!”

The most recent comment following this Lancaster Online article about the “lack of parking” being a “deal breaker” in a developer’s quest to influence a state agency to locate in Columbia.

Why not build a parking lot on land close by to the intended call center site?

Surely, having been able to influence the borough council to assist in the financing package, the developer ought to be able to influence a private owner and a partner in the CEDC to pony up attractive financing terms for a parking lot.

“Hey, it could happen!”

In Everyday Living, Government, Opportunities on May 31, 2015 at 8:19 am

You gotta’ believe … just like J.P. wistfully says in the movie, “Angels in the Outfield.”

Hey, it could happen! A small-town school teacher turns into a big-time elected “public servant” and amasses a fortune. Legally, of course! Yeah, sure.

Hey, it could happen! Three separate fire departments consolidate into one to one: “Everybody wanted the consolidation of three fire companies in (______________, fill in the name of the town) to work, and that’s exactly what it’s done, fire company and municipal officials say.”

“By the year 2020, only 15% of Americans are expected to attend weekly worship services.” – The Conversation

“It is estimated that membership for more than four in five of the churches in the US has plateaued or declined, and about 4,000 churches close their doors every year.” – The Conversation.
