Columbia Citizens' WikLi

This one's a bi-Wikli. We'll post the next one on Wednesday June 8.


your Wikli-fix: our wishlist

Don'tcha just wish…

… everyone had access to fresh, nutritious food?
… we could discuss a way forward for a new Cinema?
… there were instant justice for neighborhood thefts?
… our sidewalks hopped with local vibes?
… we had more and better trails through our natural spaces?

It's not just wishful thinking. It's all in this week's Wikli.


Live locally.

You'll now find special happy hour snacks, a delicious shrimp po boy, BBQ Chicken and more on the new menu. Stop on in for a drink, a nosh and a look at the new lobby.
