WHY I LOVE NEWSPAPERS
The Georgia Press Association is beginning a column-writing campaign to bolster the successes and the importance of our newspapers by well-known Georgians and newspaper men and women like you. Please feel free to use these columns in your newspaper to show your community what a great job you and your fellow GPA members are doing. And by all means, if you feel compelled to write a column to share in the effort, please send it to us. If you have any questions, give us a call at 770-454-6776.
