🌱 The window of the Saint-Jean-Baptiste church is broken + open job offers

Hello, Colombia! Let’s kick off this Tuesday with everything you need to know about what’s happening in town today.

First, today’s weather forecast:

Partly sunny and pleasant. High: 74 Low: 60.

Here are the top three stories from today in Colombia:

  1. A man has been arrested and charged with breaking a window at Columbia Church. Jeffery Couch was charged at St. John Baptist Church on West Beltline Boulevard on Sunday. He is currently being held in a bail detention center. (WIS News 10)
  2. Columbia’s tight affordable housing market has been worse for people with disabilities. Many houses listed do not have disabled facilities, such as walk-in showers and first floor bedrooms.
