    Alfred and Mary Bracey have felt a sense of community in Columbia, ever since they moved there over 30 years ago.  Maybe that is why, even after retiring from their jobs, they do not want to live anywhere else.  The married couple talk about some of the places they have seen being built in town, as well as, some of the social and community groups they enjoy.

    Scott Johnson talks about growing up in Columbia and the schools, stores, and open spaces that he would walk or ride his bicycle to near his home.  Columbia had everything for him and he later came to know about Rouse’s vision and how other towns were not like Columbia.  Johnson names several local attractions that he has enjoyed over the years and expresses his hopes for the future of Howard County and Columbia.
