Transition transition | Today’s (August 9, 2020) post is the last regular post for Columbia news, views & reviews. After more than 7,350 posts spanning all the way back to March 1, 2011, this publication will cease to publish certainly by the end of 2020. Beginning today, this publication will no longer provide daily posts and maybe even weekly posts. The small scale Columbia Climate Survey showed that Columbia Spy and Columbia news, views & reviews are the top two ranked media resources people use to find out what’s happening in Columbia. We may continue to use the Columbia news, views & reviews facebook page to share items of local relevance.
