A collection of blogs and other sources about local issues. These aren’t “ours” (that is, they aren’t run by the democratic committee; some of the bloggers do happen to be members), but it’s nice to have a collection of local viewpoints… especially ones that we’re typically sympathetic to!
- Lee Becker blogs at Oconee Observations, and aims that as a newsletter.
- Dan Matthews blogs as Oconee Democrat; Dan has been pretty active with both political and “lifestyle” local news items.
- Freeland Abbott occasionally muses as Left of Center; he’s not particularly frequent, and hasn’t been at it as long.
In addition to the individual blogs, it may be worth mentioning the local newspapers:
- The Oconee Enterprise is a locally-owned weekly
- The Oconee Leader, owned by Morris Communications (which also owns the Athens Banner-Herald; they put the Leader into a corner of the Banner-Herald’s website)
