Open Thread on Monday’s Meeting on Downtown Columbia

OK, it is time to write your own comments. Use the comments section on this post to write about what you thought of Monday’s meeting on the plan for downtown Columbia. The comments tool on blogs can be easy tools to get your voice heard and discuss with others in the community issues that you think need to be addressed and to collectively brainstorm solutions. I will be writing several posts over the rest of the week about the plan for downtown Columbia, but first I want to hear what you thought. I would prefer that you use the comments section so we can have a good discussion as a community, but if you have something you want to email me directly you can at

Unfortunately, I had to miss the meeting last night -- I'd planned to go, but had a last-minute conflict arise. So I am anxious to hear reports on what was said and what the next steps are. My main concerns about the plan as I understand it are: the lack of affordable housing, the lack of any plan for schools, and the lack of any plan for mass transit.

My family moved to Columbia when the city was in its infancy -- and my parents consciously chose Columbia because it was a "planned community." I hope that we don't miss this opportunity to remain a PLANNED community -- the last thing we need is for Columbia to become just another hodgepodge of "suburban sprawl."

My question about the "New Downtown Columbia" is this: when is Howard County going to get real mass transit? If the issue of transportation is not addressed, and I don't see it addressed in the "New Downtown" except for automobiles, Howard County we be swamped with cars and buried in roads.

Dawn & Demos,

Those are both very good points. The issues of mass transit or affordable housing have not been addressed adequately yet. On the issue of schools I am not confident in their student numbers projections. We must make sure that the plan is not approved until there are clear solutions in the plan to these issues.

Thanks Evan -- I think that the school issue is tied up with the affordable housing issue. If they are targeting all of their (expensive) housing at "young professionals" and seniors, they can honestly project that the new residents won't impact the schools. But if they start planning for affordable/"work force" housing (which I think is a MUST if Columbia is to maintain its diverse/inclusive identity), they will also need to adjust their school projections.

I am really worried about the medications of many people use... thats the reason because show that theme to you... The Drugs like the COLCHICINE

the most important things about Colchicine
is a highly poisonous alkaloid, originally extracted from plants of the genus Colchicum .
Originally used to treat rheumatic complaints and especially gout, it was also prescribed
for its cathartic and emetic effects. Its present medicinal use is mainly in the treatment
of gout; as well, it is being investigated for its potential use as an anti-cancer drug.
It can also be used as initial treatment for pericarditis and preventing recurrences of
the condition.

In the same calification we can find drugs like

probenecid (sometimes referred to as Probenacid or Probenicid) is a drug that stimulates the kidneys to increase uric acid excretion.
This type of drug, known as a uricosuric, will cause the overall levels of uric acid in the blood to fall, thus reducing the chances of gout attacks in the long term.
However, in the short term, it can cause gout attacks as existing crystals re-dissolve.
For this reason, it is often prescribed along with a pain-relieving drug.
Probenecid will not normally prevent gout attacks until you have taken it for over 12 months.
Some people find they can stop taking it, once uric acid levels have been reduced and stabilized.
Regular uric acid tests will help to confirm your situation.
Note that you are at risk of contracting gout again if you stop taking the drug and have made no other lifestyle changes that reduce your gout risk.

Loratadine is used to relieve hay fever and allergy symptoms, including sneezing; runny
nose; and red, itchy, tearing eyes. Loratadine is in a class of medications called
antihistamines. It works by blocking histamine, a substance in the body that causes
allergic symptoms. Loratadine may cause less drowsiness than other antihistamines.

Flonase is a steroid. It prevents the release of substances in the body that cause inflammation, is used to treat the nasal symptoms of allergies and other seasonal reactions.,may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this medication guide.
Use Flonase spray exactly as directed by your doctor. Read the information insert included with your medication. If you do not understand these instructions, ask your pharmacist, nurse, or doctor to explain them to you.
To use the nasal spray:
Shake the bottle gently and then remove the dust cover,It is necessary to prime the pump
into the air the first time it is used, or when you have not used it for a week or more.

the fioricet is a pain reliever and fever reducer.
is in a class of drugs called barbiturates that slow down your central nervous system (brain and nerve impulses) causing relaxation.
is believed to constrict dilated blood vessels that may contribute to tension headaches.
Together, acetaminophen, butalbital, and caffeine are used to relieve complex tension (muscle contraction) headaches although precisely how it works is unknown.
Fioricet may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this medication guide.

Have a great day
