For five decades, the Columbians have been synonymous with good music.

They’re the cream of the crop of Columbia Falls High School’s musicians and are considered one of the best student jazz bands around. When the group celebrates its 50th anniversary this month, it celebrates five decades of accolades and excellence.

            Bravo to Karen Ulmer for taking over the program, but let's not forget that part of the "survival" over 16 years was due to Jeff Sizer. Mr. Sizer was the band instructor at CFHS for several years, and while there, he not only made great improvements in the quality of the band program, but he also brought back the integrity the Columbians had in the "Days of Don Lawrence". He taught his students how to love music and how to make great music. He was sorely missed when he moved from the district.
