After losing all three of their games (one was an exhibition) on their opening weekend in Georgia, the Statesmen returned to Georgia this past weekend for a three-game series with Georgia Highlands College and went 1-2, salvaging the third game to avoid a sweep.

Days might be numbered for presses, but not for newspapers
Jim Nowlan and I go back a long way, and I can't think of anyone I know who I respect more. That being said, I have a much less dystopian view of the future of newspapers, and particularly community journalism, than the one Jim shared his piece, "Stop the hand-wringing over decline of newspapers," a couple weeks ago. We are a much better product than we give ourselves credit for, and for those committed to community journalism, I believe we have a much brighter future than what some might think.
