Ricky Berkey is a Columbus community volunteer and activist. I particularly enjoy the time I have spent as a tour guide with the Columbus Indiana Visitors Center. It’s gratifying to be able to show off a place you honestly admire. This website is an outgrowth of my enthusiasm for the Columbus community.
I’m an extreme and hopeless liberal but always see the humor in the ever-changing cycles of political power. I love music of all kinds; especially Folk and Jazz. I have developed an obsession for architecture and design as a result of living in Columbus. Columbus has been my home since 2000 and I often refer to it as my “adopted hometown”. I can’t imagine living anywhere else at this point. I’ve developed a sense of place and been enveloped in a unique community spirit that I’ve have found nowhere else. This place matters!
