Safer Sundays now with Cones at Crosswalk

2017-09-18 - Crossing to Columbia United Methodist Church, 202 Burkesville Street, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener,
Thanks to the execution of the idea for warning cones at this crosswalk by Dr. Pam Stephens, pedestrians are considerably less likely to get struck by a vehicle (on Sundays). Mary Ann & Barry Loy, early advocates for cones at crosswalks, were pleased with the effect the visual cues had on Sunday morning traffic; during their crossing and return every car approaching stopped. The same was repeated for a distinguished worshipper from New Columbia, and for a popular, still honeymooning couple from Adair & Taylor Counties, all bound for Columbia United Methodists' traditional, early morning, service. Mrs. Loy suggested the cross bars be repainted, commenting, "Shoot, that can't be too hard. I'd be glad to do it myself." -EW
