Interesting on two counts: From a MUNICIPAL BRIEF in today’s LNP – Always Lancaster: “Marietta approved the hiring of another municipality’s manager to serve as a consultant in teaching its newest elected council members on how to govern.” Also, it’s interesting there are MUNICIPAL BRIEFS from lots of municipalities including Marietta and Mountville, but none from Columbia. Again the only way to find out what happens in Columbia (at the borough council’s meetings or the school meetings) is to look at local online news sources, this one or Columbia Spy or attend the meetings.

By the way, councillor Mike Buery has tendered his resignation according to Columbia Spy and citizen reports. Could not find info about that at the Borough Employment / Volunteer Opportunities Webpage.

Columbia’s River Park’s Columbia Crossings building gets LNP – Always Lancaster page one article today and this video.

government speederOne time you see government speeding along.

Two wrongs: While driving northbound on US Route 222 yesterday morning at the posted speed limit, this vehicle – with a US Government license plate – blasted by. We pulled into the pass lane to “guess-timate the vehicle’s speed.” At least 80 mph. And the driver, a younger female, was yakking on a hand-held mobile device.

Every state wrapping Pennsylvania (except Ohio) has made “talking on a hand-held cellphone” illegal – why not Pennsylvania, too?

Unique or you’re not! It’s a “nails on a chalkboard” thing. It’s almost daily that you can say that some place or some thing is “more unique.” Unique is sufficient.

Facebook post: “Salsa’s is currently closed for renovations. Our apologies for the inconvenience this may cause. We do not have a date for reopening at this time. We will keep you posted here on our Facebook page. Thank you.”

“haveagoodun!” Another uniquely dumass word that’s slithered into the language of the state. Translation: Evidently the uneducated person’s way of saying “Thank you.”
