|THIS YEAR'S ART SHOW is officially cancelled. It's not safe to consider
having it in the current state of affairs. Masks and social distancing seem to have
been put aside, from the looks of things in the downtown/uptown area of Columbus.
There does not seem to be anyone to remind people of the danger in which they
are in be gathering in large groups without masks. At a recent Market Days, even
the vendors were seen not wearing masks, and a lot of "germs" were probably
passed around. We all hope no one becomes seriously ill, but there is no need to
add fuel to the proverbial fire by having the show this year. We will keep you
posted! Arts on the River ®

what one thinks of Lee, a statue is a
work of art, and an expensive one at
that. Vandals should be prosecuted
