The vote no group, formally known as Communities United for a Better Columbia, also wont release a singular poll it ran a couple of weeks ago. All they will say is that the poll showed voters can be swayed against strong mayor when they learn more about how it would operate. The vote yes team, through Quinn, said it has conducted four polls. A sampling last week of 400 voters who cast ballots regularly found that 45 percent said they would vote for a strong-mayor system, while 40 percent said they would oppose the change, Quinn said late last week. Were going to have to work hard to get our folks out, he said of Election Day. Earlier polls by the yes team known as Columbia Citizens for Better Government showed that, conceptually, voters support change.

Subscribe Boys Basketball: Columbia races to 70-33 win over PJPII in Columbia Classic (photos, video) Loading Photo Gallery 11/25 - 5:00 PM Boys Basketball Final Pope John Paul II Catholic 33 First round: Madison County vs. East Limestone HUNTSVILLE, Alabama — The first four games of Columbias season had been nail-biters. An overpowering first quarter on Monday broke that trend. Columbia (3-2) outscored Pope John Paul II 28-4 in the opening quarter and cruised to a 70-33 victory in the first round of the Columbia Classic.
But Edwards got hot in the second as his steal and subsequent layup with 3:30 remaining put the Tigers up 14-12 for a lead they would not relinquish. Madison County led 26-21 at half. Sean is a really good player, said Tigers coach Bubba Webster. He stepped up and made some shots and made things happen. I think he can really help us this year and he definitely carried us in the second period. The Tigers continued to heat up in the second half as Riley Websters 3-point basket at the 6:03 mark of the third quarter gave Madison County a 33-22 lead as the Tigers went on a 7-1 run and led 50-40 heading into the fourth. The Eagles however would not go down without a fight and Gerrod Abrams’ layup with 2:47 remaining brought Columbia to 46-43.
Columbia (4-3) had a lead of at least six points the entire second half. Petrasek and Meiko Lyles hit back-to-back three-pointers to give the Lions a 46-33 lead with 13:16 remaining, yet the Lions would only shoot two of nine from the floor the rest of the night. Monday’s Photos of the day Lyles scored ten points. Maodo Lo had a game-high three 3-pointers to go with his 13 points for the Lions. Facing a 13-point halftime deficit, Americans Darius Gardner scored six points to pull the Eagles within 35-29 at the 16:57 mark. American had a 7-0 run to pull within 46-40, taking nearly seven minutes before the Lions scored on a pair of free throws. Tony Wroblicky and Gardner both scored 15 points to lead American (1-4).
Today we may laugh at the minor infraction that actually triggered Ginsbergs suspensionan obscene phrase traced in the dust of his dorm room windowan incident described in Ginsbergs letters, though not depicted in the film . But his involvement with a group of friends that included thieves and drug addicts, as well as a brilliant young Columbia student named Lucien Carr, who ended up murdering another continue member of their circle, is certainly troubling. Kill Your Darlings devotes plenty of screen time to Ginsbergs relationship with Carr, and to the murder, a controversial chapter in Beat history. Yet it barely touches on another important relationshipthat of the young Ginsberg and his real-life professor, literary critic Lionel Trilling. Rather than portraying Trilling, the film reincarnates Ginsbergs favorite teacher as the fictional Professor Steves, an avuncular non-entity who offers the student little more than an encouraging scribble on his final paper. This celluloid relationship conforms to two stereotypes popular in movie-land: the dusty academic and the sensitive, alienated poet. The reality was more complex and much more interesting.
The fire caused about $6.5 million in damages to stores and their inventory. No injuries were reported in the fire. The Columbia Daily Tribune reports ( http://bit.ly/18lqt2y) the city is not expected to seek jail time for Stevenson, but would ask for the maximum penalty of a $500 fine for each count. The next court date is Feb. 24. ___ Information from: Columbia Daily Tribune, http://www.columbiatribune.com Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.
