Gathering News Nearby

Reporters know that somewhere on the UGA campus there’s an expert on nearly every subject, and Grady students are lucky to have these resources at hand.

But when you’re hunting for off-campus sources for stories involving advocacy or politics, you sometimes think that Atlanta is the place to get them.

Think again: this month there are fascinating reporting opportunities right here in the ATH.

First up: the “Seeing is Believing” tour of the Clarke County Schools, set for 8-11 a.m. on February 9. Hop a school bus with other inquisitive folks and visit elementary, middle and high school campuses. Looking for community folks to interview about child health, nutrition, physical activity or the like? Just imagine who you’ll meet on the bus. To sign up, send your contact information to

“Reclaiming Agriculture,” the 13th Annual Georgia Organics Conference & Expo, comes to the Classic Center on February 19 and 20th. The keynote speaker is Carlo Petrini, founder of the international Slow Food movement, and the conference offers educational sessions, tours of farms and research centers, gourmet meals and exhibits. Workshops cover topics as diverse as beekeeping, soil fertility, equipment repair, cheese making and using social media to market what farms produce. Contact Communications director Michael Wall at for information about press registration.

The following weekend, February 26-28, the Georgia Association of Black Elected Officials convenes at Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church, 1931 Old West Broad Street in West Athens. This 40-year-old organization has 700 members elected to municipal, county, state and national office. GABEO members make decisions about land use, education, jobs, public safety and a host of other government programs that influence the health of children and adults. This will be a great place to identify hot topics and make contacts with lasting value.

There’s no schedule posted on the GABEO website at present, but you can contact or or call 404-372-1894 for information about attending as press. State Representative Tyrone Brooks is the current president, and local hosts include Michael Thurmond, Georgia’s Commissioner of Labor.
