V.Kolbenschlag likes Barry Loy photo, tulips & grape hyacinths

Thinks more should be done to find people doing good, telling the world about, and hopes City can do more to recognize those improving the appearance of our town. Hopes more can be done about neglected buildings, too
About: Comments re photo 78005 New Tulips Grape Hyacinths brighten Columbia Cemetery

By Vonnie Kolbenschlag

How wonderful to see the bright flowers thanks to Barry Loy's photos and the person(s) who put in the bulbs in the fall.

And, to CM. Without CM, I would not know about these flowers. I did not plant them and I hope that whoever did plant them will receive a special thanks from the city, since it is a city cemetery.

Also deserving of a city thanks, I think, are the persons renovating their buildings.

Recognition and thanks from city officials of persons doing city improvement encourages people.

Is there some way we might kindly let owners of the deteriorating buildings realize how appearance of their buildings is hurting Columbia's appearance? I think it must be discouraging to owners who rehab old buildings that have character and charm, to see near-by buildings being neglected.

I thank CM for recognizing efforts of persons who care for Columbia.
