Environmental Awakening?

Four random items caught our eye in the Columbia Flier: A front page story on a man who wants the Columbia Association to allow golf carts and other electric conveyances on the bike paths. Diane Brown's profile of 80-year-old Tina Cole, a longtime Columbian who walks everywhere and moved here because she bought into the village concept and the fact that you could live close to schools and shopping. And finally two news briefs. One about council member Calvin Ball's proposal to expand county property tax credit for residents who install energy-saving devices in their homes. The other about Ken Ulman's environmental commission to recommend "green" initiatives---this run by Columbian Joshua Feldmark.
