  • From the Metro Desk blog: Columbia Fire Chief Bradley Anderson says he is hiring four more fire marshals to help with the city’s backlog of commercial fire inspections.

  • Internet-marketing company Red Ventures is moving to northern Lancaster County, where it plans to add 1,000 jobs over the next five to seven years, company officials said Tuesday.
