“More and more democratically-elected leaders no longer see the media as part of democracy’s essential underpinning, but as an adversary to which they openly display their aversion. The United States, the country of the First Amendment, has fallen again in the Index under Donald Trump, this time two places to 45th. A media-bashing enthusiast, Trump has referred to reporters as ‘enemies of the people,’ the term once used by Joseph Stalin.” – NewsCorpse
Positively “positive” news only | And local elected public officials follow right along.
JUST ANNOUNCED | “Positively Positive” news was announced yesterday morning here at Columbia news, views & reviews, at Columbia Spy followed by other area media later in the day. Columbia developers, Don and Becky Murphy owners of Cimarron Investments, LLC., released the news about the conversion of the long-vacant structure at 10-12 North Second Street, Columbia then.
Area business owners and citizens with whom we spoke are thrilled with the announcement and the prospect of continued enhancements to the downtown area. Chris Vera, the Columbia Historic Preservation Society‘s president said that the announcement of the new hotel is extremely exciting. He knows that as more visitors discover the charms of Columbia and positive growth will continue.
In an article at Lancaster Online, Columbia’s mayor said, ““There’s no doubt about it, it’s going to completely change that block.”
A comment following the article is more positive, “This is what happens when people like the Murphy’s break the ice financially … others will follow. It has waterfront and even though it is more views than use, it is so important for growth.”
Yet there’s nothing about this “positively POSITIVE” news at the Columbia Borough Website nor the Columbia Economic Development Website. Though there is a “spectacular news” shout at the CEDC’s facebook page.
