The trees around town are really beautiful, including the youngest ones and the ones planted a couple of years ago. They add so much elegance to the cityscape. All new construction and significant renovations are now accompanied by a bombardment of shade trees. That ordinance is truly making a tremendous difference. BTW, they've just put in a row of rather tall pin oaks between the Moore School of Business and the Assembly Street sidewalk. The oaks and the lamp posts will create such a beautiful corridor down through there. "Tree City USA" (for 33 years and counting) is really turning it up a few notches with its canopy.

It would be nice to turn an empty lot downtown (such as Park & Lady) into a food truck plaza. I don't think most people in Columbia realize how much this adds to an area if done correctly.

I often see Bone-in at Huger and Gervais on weekdays at lunch.

Sure that isn't 2Fat2Fly? 2Fat will go out sometimes everyday for lunch and then they don't go out for a month or 2. Not trying to knock any of them, I just want more food trucks. Bone-In used to be at the Big Apple on Fridays but haven't been for about 6-8months.

Columbia has been adding construction jobs at a nice clip for the last couple of months, without the benefit of any penny sales tax construction jobs having been added yet.

2 Fat 2 Fly is there sometimes, too, but I know I've seen Bone-in there on occasion. Like them on Facebook or Twitter and follow where they are.

On the business page of The State this morning it says, "Coming Sunday - Supplemental insurer Aflac is expanding its presence in Columbia." That's all it says.
