25 years ago (week of March 7-13, 1971):

Results of the evaluation of a new model elementary school -- Northfield -- and an older, traditional elementary school -- St. John's Lane -- were released. Student/teacher interaction was shown to be better at the model school, as were third-grade language skills. However, the traditional school significantly outperformed the model school in mathematics at both third- and fifth-grade levels.

It was announced that the intersection of U.S. 29 and South Entrance Road would be redesigned. The opening of The Mall in Columbia, planned for Aug. 1, would result in a heavier volume of traffic than the intersection could safely handle in its existing configuration.
