Classical-hip hop hybrid duo Black Violin played a concert for Live on the Plaza, which celebrated the reopening of the Cleo Rogers Memorial Library plaza. An estimated crowd of 2,000 people gathered for the event, where they clapped, danced and nodded along to the music.


A class called “New Brothers and Sisters,” offered by the Wellness Program at Columbus Regional Hospital, taught siblings of expected babies things they could do with the baby and how to help their moms.


A two-page picture story and three-page article about Columbus and its architecture were printed in Town & Country magazine, as well as an interview with J. Irwin Miller. The title of the architecture article was “This is the Town Irwin Miller Built.”
