'Columbia News' moves offices
The Columbia News has relocated to 3736 Washington Road in Martinez, next to Matheny's Drug store. The News has grown after coming back to county ownership, with circulation increasing by more than 1,000 readers in six months.
The new office will be open from 9-5 Mondays through Fridays and from 9-12 on Saturdays.
In addition to a new location, The News acquired new assistant editor Elizabeth (Libby) Jackson, who will operate the new office.
The Columbia County Fair, which was scheduled to begin on Sept. 30, has been postponed, according to a spokesman for the Harlem Jaycees, who are sponsoring the event.
The event is postponed because B&G Shows, who were to have provided the rides and side show attractions for the event, didn't appear as they said they would in their contract. A B&G spokesman said that the company felt that a fair without sideshows and rides would not be successful.
However, the Jaycees plan to put on a fair before the end of the year, possibly during the fourth week in October, and the club has been in contact with another agency.
