Help decorate our tree!
The Columbia County News-Times office has a Christmas tree in the lobby, but we need ornaments! We're looking for photos - wallet-size school pictures are fine - of Columbia County children to decorate our tree, and we'll publish the photos on a printed "tree" in the Dec. 22 issue. One child will be chosen to become the "star" of the tree. Bring or mail a photo to our office in the Publix shopping center, 4272 Washington Road, Evans, GA 30809, or e-mail a photo to cnt@newstimes online.com. Hurry! The deadline is Dec. 17.
