Columbia and West Marion continued their hot starts in 2019, both winning Friday night to keep their records unblemished, and Columbia Academy notched its first victory of the season.
It didn’t take long for the Columbia-East Marion rivalry game to be decided as the Wildcats put 21 points on the board in the blink of an eye and routed the Eagles 60-14 on East Marion’s home turf for their sixth straight win over their bitter rival.
On the corner lot on Juniper Drive in Columbia sits the home of Rosalind and John Mikell, which also happens to be the September Yard of the Month.
The house is covered in shade from the two white oak trees that the Mikells planted in 1979. The front porch is beautifully decorated with inviting furniture, potted plants and a swing.
