Want to help?

Our goal at SGFNews.org is to help the local media do their jobs better. We provide additional coverage of some issues, moderate citizen contributions/comments, and aggregate the best of local news content for our readers.

And we need your help to survive and thrive.

Writing and reporting

Please contribute whatever you can — writing, photography, news tips, comments. This is the community’s site, not mine.

If you’re interested in joining our efforts, e-mail me. Your information is for our purposes only and will not be shared with anyone.

We’ll talk to any community group about SGFNews and will provide free training for groups about how to report and contribute blog posts.

Join the conversation

We encourage everyone to contribute to this site and comment on posts.

A few guidelines:

  • No profanity.
  • Be civil. Don’t resort to personal attacks.
  • Support your arguments. Offer links to supporting material, and support your conclusions with facts.
