A reader sounds off about traffic on the square

An unsolved problem in Columbia and one which needs immediateattention is the traffic situation. Traffic has increased to the pointthat on busy days the Public Square and adjacent streets for severalblocks are often jammed with cars and trucks which have difficultypassing through the business section in anything like a reasonablelength of time.

This condition is becoming steadily worse and the CityCouncil should take steps to remedy it as soon as possible...

You will note I didn't claim this opinion as my own, just that it wasoffered for your consideration. Actually, it appeared in the October 22,1947 edition of the "Adair County News," but I double-checked to makesure the date wasn't this week and that the byline wasn't that of EdWaggener or Paul B. Hayes.

Deja vu, anyone?
