  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.

  2. Finally, we have a paper who does not mind calling out what is going on in the local Government. I am so glad I found the Augusta Press. I enjoy all the reporting and please keep up the excellent work you are doing.
