    • Shared with each television station “news” operation that ignored all until forced to comment by stories produced The Augusta Press and then each tv news staff produced pieces in which they tossed a couple of softball questions at whichever Dimokrat commissioner or mayor was in the spotlight for unsavory behavior (to be kind).

  1. Anna’s comments on a well informed community is so true. I’ve never thought of it that way. Augusta is a better place for us all because of your work and principles that The Augusta Press stands on. Keep doing what you do and you’ll always be endeared by this community. Congratulations on your well deserved awards. Our hats are off to your amazing staff.
