We received Ken Ulman's jubilant email message regarding Money Magazine naming Columbia and Ellicott City second in the nation in their assessment of best places to live and work.

(See the red ink on page 68 of the magazine.) Mr. Ulman and the County Council, including Mary Kay Sigaty, pushed through an approval of the developer's plan for a huge increase in housing (5500 units, almost 500 per cent more than currently exist in downtown)
