Science Twitch

I am excited to be able to participate in a live discussion with Dr. Amber Schmidtke, the Macon microbiologist who writes the Substack newsletter, Georgia COVID-19 Updates. I’ve linked to Dr. Schmidtke’s newsletter before because she is a rare source of reliable, clear information about the state of the pandemic here.

Dr. Schmidtke agreed to be on the live Twitch show this evening, August 12 at 6 p.m. If you have a Twitch account, you can view us live. If not, you can watch the recorded show on the Decaturish Media YouTube channel.

She will be talking about the latest COVID information and taking questions from the audience. I think it will be a great show.

Whew! Look at these cobwebs …

Long time, no update. But I have been working – that’s the point.

Local news blog owner/editor/old school journalist Dan Whisenhunt at gave me a shot at doing a local development story in Clarkston. You can find that here.

It’s funny how you forget what it’s like to write these stories, have so much more information than will really fit, try to do justice to everyone involved, and still feel like you haven’t quite gotten there. I hope I get to go back and do an update.

How it looks on the blog. Unfortunately, I cropped out my byline! Page design has never been my strong suit.
