The following briefs are from Thursday, Jan. 16, 1969 edition of The Transylvania Times.

Curtis Lee Mason, 38, of Rosman died of a broken back received when his car went out of control and over an embankment on N.C. 178 two miles south of Brevard, according to the Transylvania Sheriff’s Department. He was an employee of the Mitchell-Bissell Corporation of Rosman and a member of the Lake Toxaway Methodist Church.

This issue of The Times is printed by the new method of “offset” printing. Thanks to The Times-News, Hendersonville, we were able to come out on time regardless of a press breakdown in The Times printing plant. The new piece required to fix the press did not arrive from Chicago until Wednesday, too late for us to use The Times big printing press. The “offset” printing looks so good that the owners are considering switching to it in the future. But like The New York Times, they are reluctant to make the big switch. We sincerely appreciate the help that Publisher Lawson Braswell and his staff gave us this week.
