Flooding
I read with great interest the
article about flooding in our fair city.
Mr. Rosales has a business that is
prone to flood any time we have a
large downpour. I can remember
Mr. Glenn Lollar, when he operated
the College Turn Service Station
and used car lot on 14th and College
Street. It has flooded there as long as
I can remember. We have many areas
that are subject to flooding in Co-
lumbus, and I live in on of them. Mr.
Rosales is correct in the fact that the
City’s public works department does
not do the job they need to do to pre-
vent some of the drainage problems
we have. I live in the Masonic sub-
division where Magby Creek floods

years ago. We have water flowing

Local photographers help document the historic route

All Parkway photographs by Bob or Pat Boisseau/Sherwood Photography

I
n their careers, Bob and Pat Bois-
seau of Sherwood Photography
in Columbus have photographed
hundreds, if not thousands, of
weddings, senior portraits, chil-
dren, family reunions and just about
everything else in between. This
past year, however, they took on an
assignment of a different kind when
they became official photographers
of the Natchez Trace Parkway. Their
mission? To travel the 444-mile
recreational road that touches three
states — Mississippi, Alabama and
Tennessee — and capture images
of scenic spots, wildlife and people
enjoying themselves. The photo-
graphs could end up in brochures,
billboards, on social media or in
other promotional material, as well
as in Parkway visitor centers. Their
time frame? One year.
The Boisseaus were selected for
the project after going through a
rigorous process. Jan Swoope/Dispatch Staff
