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

Today’s quote … “I pray that our leaders will always act with humility and generosity. I pray that my failings are forgiven. I pray that we will uphold our obligation to be good stewards of God’s creation – this beautiful planet. I pray that we will see every single child as our own, each worthy of our love and of our compassion. And I pray we answer Scripture’s call to lift up the vulnerable, and to stand up for justice, and ensure that every human being lives in dignity. That’s my prayer as well for this breakfast, and for this country, in the years to come.” – Former US President, Barrack Obama’s National Prayer Breakfast 2006.

  • Your choice – two “either or” meetings tonight | Columbia Borough’s sitting Councillors will pick someone to fill a vacancy at a Special Council Meeting at 6:00 pm (NOTE: The notice also states, council may also “consider such items as may come before Council”).and Columbia Borough School District’s board of directors (with a newly selected director) will meet for the monthly Meeting of the Whole, also at 6:00 pm. Here’s the Whole Meeting agenda, which is is posted at the School District’s Website.
  • OPINION | While we applaud the step towards transparency as the Borough council committee meeting minutes are now posted online; a much bigger (and equally needed step) would be to post the meeting agendas online in advance of the meetings.
