Welcome, reader.  My name is Maggie Lee and I’m a freelance reporter based in Atlanta, over in East Lake.

My interests include eating local food and growing my own food.  I grew 32 lbs of sweet potatoes in a mound of a 6×9 foot plot one year.

I narrowly dodged a career in academia after a BS in International Relations at Georgia Tech and an MA in Southeast Asian Studies at the National University of Singapore.  I came home to Atlanta, and got into writing via a fact-checking job at the alas-now-defunct Southern Center for International Studies.  From there, I got into journalism — first sports business of all things — then eventaully freelancing.

One day, an editor serendipitously sent me to the state capitol, where I found my inner politics nerd. I contribute to the Atlanta alt-weekly Creative Loafing and the Macon Telegraph, and sometimes write or do graphics for other places.

Got a story tip?  Anonymity guaranteed!

  1. Please ask Me. Manning if we have to file an appeal if we have an incorrect appraisal notice, or is that overkill? I just worry that the same issue will plague the bills and then the time to appeal will be over if I wait. How do they know this same issue won’t get applied to the bills? This is the government, right? So safe to assume they will make many errors.

  2. Loved your article,reading it this morning brought back my beginnings in the wonder of our dog world . My start was on an island in the Pacific ocean and tho I had always had dogs as pets,never could fathom the dog show world of pure breds and all that came with it .It will always bring me great inner satisfaction whether winning in the ring,breeding the next champion or making that decsion from the line up of dogs in front of me. Its the world I absolutely get up for each and every and day! Thanks Lois!
