Today’s news – Sunday, January 1, 2017

Today’s news and information gleanings from here and there.

Today’s quote … “The new year looks to be a busy but exciting one in Columbia Borough. We have a list of potential economic development projects in the works, but it is too early to elaborate.” – Leo Lutz, Columbia’s mayor in the “Wishes for 2017: An LNP tradition” piece in today’s LNP – Always Lancaster.

Today’s second quote … “Though my wish is simple, the solution is not. Until the day comes when no one shall know hunger, the Columbia Food Bank’s doors (and hearts) will remain open to those who need us.” – Danielle Peters, Columbia Food Bank’s director, from the same piece.


  • In Lancaster County, Musser’s  joins a list of several with long lists of violations. This Musser’s is the one not in Columbia but east of town – the one in Columbia gets spared state scrutiny because Columbia uses its own inspection system and citizens don’t get to see that unless they file a “right-to-know” request.
