Columbia Resident Darla Davenport-Powell appeared on ABC’s Ultimate Toy Competition
A Columbia resident appeared on the series premier of ABC’s ultimate toy-competition series, “The Toy Box.” Darla Davenport-Powell invented the Niya Doll, a collection of multicultural dolls who sing and speak in multiple languages. Davenport-Powell competed with other toy-makers who came up with unique concepts. The Arya Ball is a reimagining of the soccer ball with special surprises inside, the Wacky Worm Racing Game is a game where players dress in worm costumes and race to cross a finish line, the Swurfer is a backyard swing inspired by a surfboard and the Party Cannon is a party game that launches toys, prizes and candy. The show airs on Friday, April 7 and runs weekly on ABC at 8 p.m. EDT.
Solid Waste Awarded Carolina Recycling Association Award
​The City of Columbia Solid Waste Division was recognized by the Carolina Recycling Association for the City’s innovative use of technology in the recycling program. CRA held their annual conference in Myrtle Beach, SC and held the awards luncheon on Wednesday, March 29, 2017 where Samantha Yager, solid waste assistant superintendent, accepted the award on the City’s behalf. CRA was impressed with the City’s use of mobile technology when communicating with residents, specifically college students, about collection schedules and education. The City was finding that less people wanted to pick up the phone and call - they want to receive information the way they receive everything else - via apps, the internet, or instant messaging.
Volunteers Needed to Help Mark Storm Drains
The City of Columbia and Richland County are seeking community volunteers to help mark storm drains in April as a part of the “My River Starts Here” campaign. Local waterways – creeks, streams, lakes and rivers – are affected by pollutants that flow into storm drains. To alert the public that rainwater is the only thing that should go down storm drains, volunteers will adhere round medallions to drains during Storm Drain Marking Month. While the medallions for each local government differ slightly, both include the image of a fish and water with “No Dumping/Drains to River” stamped in large letters.
