From the publisher: Welcome to Augusta Good News

Why Augusta Good News?

For 35 years, I’ve covered news in the Augusta area, writing for publications such as The Augusta Chronicle, Augusta Magazine, Columbia County Magazine and Fort Gordon’s The Signal newspaper. Most recently, I served as the managing editor of The Augusta Press.

Augusta is my hometown, and I’ve come to know Augusta and surrounding cities as an area rich with inspirational people who are doing great things. I’ve brought you those stories.

The mission of Augusta Good News is not only to focus on those people but to highlight the good things non-profits are doing, showcase the arts organizations bringing beauty into the city and feature the businesses run by local people – your neighbors. You’ll also find smatterings of sports, education and faith on our pages.

Augusta Good News is an independent, alternative voice in local media with no affiliation to any other news organizations.

So, look for good news at and don’t forget to sign up for our newsletter here.
