Hamlet (4/14)



  1. This is Not good!!!! On Yahoo's front page South Carolina, Rhode Island and Michigan are the worst states to look for a job!!!
  2. The vista is really starting to come along. I got a chance to drive through the vista while going to Mellow Mushroom's today for lunch. And I was saying to myself in the next 5 years this section of Columbia is going to look really different. At the bottom of the vista near Public's they are building none stop. I think now the city should start adding more national recognized shops.

    I'm glad to see this finally materialize to something . I know it was stalled for a minute and the economy didn't make things any better. Just glad to see the ball starting to move again
  4. I read the article this morning. I think it's a great ideal!!! If you get the services provided by the city either you can get annex in with the city of Columbia or seek services else where. It's an awful lot of areas that get water,sanitation and police services but is not counted in the city population. I'm expecting to see the City of Columbia stretching it's boundaries soon
  5. A while back we all thought by the next census Charleston would've caught up with Columbia. But for the last two years Columbia had more people moving here than any other part of the state... Do anyone still think Charleston will over throw the capital????
  6. Great News!!!! Richland County Council will vote tonight on property tax breaks for a potential 200-job, $600 million Google data center near Blythewood, but the Silicon Valley company won
  7. It's funny outside of NC and SC everyone else think of the Carolinas as one. I'm from Landover, MD now residing in Columbia,SC. And to be honest I've always thought of both Carolinas as one. But Charlotte is a new kid on the block and haven't had all the exposure other southern cities have experience such as Atl, Miami, NO, Memphis but is on it's way to leaving it's mark. I think when Charlotte's Uptown develops more into something unique more people will catch on. The city itself are taking the right steps into becoming something great but it takes time. It just isn't going to happen over night. But the way the entire south is growing right now I expect most of the Carolina cities such as Charlotte,Raliegh and Columbia to pass older cities such as Richmond and Baltimore. But for right now when people think of Charlotte they think of Bank of America and Wachovia.
  8. More great news!!!! It's good to see Columbia move up... We use to be last in everything but now it seems we're making the top !10 in everything. It's a plus that SC's big 3 was in the top ten.
  9. TV talk tycoon Oprah Winfrey will be making a stop in the Capital City soon. Barack Obama's campaign has announced that Winfrey will join the senator at a campaign event on December 9. This should be real big!!!
  10. I got a chance to check it out this week also. It's really is a nice addition to downtown. I've never seen one of it's kind.
  11. I wonder what will it be????I hope's it's a new high rise

    In today's State Paper the City of Columbia is planning it's shelter near the CanalSide Development. WoW..that's a pretty bad move to me!!!!Especially if their trying to aim at a certain class of people. I don't know any one who wants to walk our their door and see homeless people. Not saying anything is wrong with that, but I definetly wouldn't prefer such. What do anyone else think????
  13. That's one thing I love about Columbia the streets are so wide.. I don't know of any city with streets like ours.
  14. It's that time of the year!!!! On Oct,8 at 7:00pm the Colonial Center will be hosting The New York Knicks vs. Philadelphia 76'ers. NBA exhibition game. This is a must see game!!! Tickets are now on sale!!!
  15. I found the website for the movie and you guys can check it out yourself.....There's more than plenty of different shots of downtown Columbia.... I can't believe they pulled it off....Columbia going for Boston... Anyway here's the site Death Setence The Movie Offical Site
