    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.
