Columbia lakefront deli closes, will relocate nearby

A new Whole Foods is slated to open next year in the former Rouse Co. building, and a Petit Louis Bistro is scheduled to open in early 2014. A pathway loop around Lake Kittamaqundi is just about complete, and earlier this year Clyde's underwent a renovation. There is, however, one change that some residents are lamenting the relocation of the popular Lakeside Deli & Cafe, which closed its doors for good Dec. 20 inside the American City Building.

Door of faith is open, yet revolving, at Columbia interfaith centers

Though the state adopted the Common Core Standards in 2010, the Columbia Board of Education approved a new local curriculum in 2012. Columbia Public Schools have begun shifting their curriculums to meet the new national academic goals before the standards are officially implemented next fall. The standards also require students to take the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium online test, which will replace the Missouri Assessment Program or MAP test. The new assessment test will launch in spring 2015. Columbia Public Schools Chief Academic Officer, Dr. Sally Beth Lyon, has played an integral role in coordinating the implementation of the standards. Lyon heads the Columbia Department of Curriculum and Instruction for Columbia Public Schools.

Investigation into Columbia Avenue explosion continues

This super lightweight, waterproof-breathable winter jacket is fully-loaded with features that will keep you dry, warm, agile and protected during physically demanding activities in challenging weather conditions. Combined with strategic interior stretch panels, the ultra soft 4-way stretch exterior allows for a full range of 'sexy flanders' moves on the slopes'; trust me, I did it several times myself. Gone are the days of over-heating (or catching a chill), running out of pocket space, and generally feeling claustrophobic due tlo a lack of maneuverability. Columbia put web site a lot into the R&D behind their proprietary OMNI-HEAT thermal reflective Microtex liner. Akin to being wrapped in tinfoil, the lining ensures your body stays warm even in the coldest of conditions. Whereas, on the other hand, the OMNI-TECH outer-shell ensures that the snow stays out even if you take a tumble or two! Worth the high price-tag?

Columbia's "Millenium Blur" ski jacket is a 'must-have' for being winter active

Chris Mickolick said she spoke to the Willards on Saturday and said they were shocked and saddened about the explosion. The blast could be heard as far away as North Ridgeville and caused a fire that firefighters needed about 20 minutes to contain. Friends, family and neighbors help the Mickolicks dig though the remains of their home. While no one was seriously injured in the blast, it caused about $300,000 in damage, according to fire Capt. Kevin Szabo. The Willards house was valued at $103,710, according to the Lorain County Auditors website.

Columbia Public Schools Implement New Curriculum

Oakland Mills, known also as the Meeting House, has more congregations with representation on its board of directors than any other center. The board consists of members of three Christian congregations Catholic, Baptist and the United Christian Church plus reform and reconstructionist Jewish congregations. No other center has more than two governing or "owning" congregations. http://www.iamsport.org/pg/blog/coopersttq/read/21864351/panama-calls-in-un-to-inspect-north-korean-arms-ship Columbia's six centers operate independently and not all in the same way. The three oldest, Wilde Lake, Oakland Mills and Owen Brown built between 1970 and the early 1980s and the newest, River Hill, all have more than one congregation sharing space under one roof. The Long Reach Interfaith Center for years has been interfaith in name only, as one congregation left, leaving only Celebration Church.
