Blurb help!

So, I'm looking at my blurb assignment that's due on Tuesday, and it looks like an easy one. Short informational pieces about seven Georgia towns and then two on Georgia itself. Basic stuff, like demographics, educational opportunities, attractions, and the like. So, I start researching the first town, going straight to the Census Bureau cite for my general info because I have to have reliable sources. And the first town on my list supposedly has a population of just a few hundred people! This does not bode well for me, so I've decided to put a call for help out there. I know there are some Georgia people on my flist here *looks at musing_mia* so would anyone be willing to help me out just a little bit? I'm going to put the towns I need to research behind the LJ cut. If anyone might be available to answer a couple questions for me regarding any or all of them, I'd greatly appreciate it!



These are the towns I'm writing up:

Buckhead
Cobb
Columbus
Decatur
Duluth
Dunwoody
Jonesboro

Thank you!!!

ETA: Ignore my plea for help right now. Now that I've sat and gone through the list, there are so many holes in my assignment that I've sent a list of questions to clarify what the needs are. For instance, did you guys know there are actually *3* Buckheads in Georgia? I'm fairly certain they want the Atlanta suburb one, but I can't assume that. And the assignment made no mention that any of these might be counties, and there actually *is* a very tiny town in Georgia called Cobb, so again, I can't assume until I know for sure. The others are fairly straightforward, but ack, it drives me crazy when there are this many holes in my assignments.
