The Georgia Press Association announced:
A national initiative to emphasize the importance of open government and the freedom of information enters its fourth year with the celebration of Sunshine Week 2008 on March 16-22.
Once again, newspapers in Georgia and across the nation are being asked to devote time and space to making readers aware of the importance of public access to government. Though the initiative reaches out to other organizations such as broadcast media, civic groups and schools, newspapers remain a key focus.
There are a variety of ways to participate in Sunshine Week - through editorials, feature stories profiling local people who have used open government laws, and educational stories about public records and public meetings.
The Web site www.sunshineweek.org has several ideas that can be easily localized for community newspapers, print and Web ads and graphics, and examples of successful newspaper efforts from past years.

While the North Georgia News is a member of the Georgia Press Association, we do not know yet if they plan to participate in Sunshine Week 2008.

ROTFLOL!!! No, Mr.Bill...something tells me that NGN will not & HAS NOT let people know of "sunshine week". BUT...you did & that's what counts. Can we include "forums" as part of Sunshine Week??


Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.

Mr. Bill!  You are in rare "forum" this fine morning.  Wait!  Sunshine Week is March 16-22 and NGN isn't covering it?  Must mean that they (Mr. Cooper and Mr. West) want all to be kept in the dark about the Sunshine in the News.

This sure opens up a lot of avenues of discussion and comments!
