As reported 45 years ago in The Columbia News, Thursday, July 9, 1964:
Next week's edition of The Columbia News will be edited and written by Marion Lee, of Evans.
Lee, one-time writer of "Lee's Breeze," which appeared in this newspaper, currently writes for The Augusta Chronicle and Augusta College's Bell Ringer .
Lee has agreed to take over the Columbia County newspaper for one week to enable the editor and his family to visit relatives and attend the PGA golf tournament in Columbus, Ohio.
The office staff will remain the same during the period, with Rebecca Jackson who writes, draws ads, keeps books, answers the phone and accomplishes whatever comes up around the office.
