This week’s paper is the largest we’ve had so far this year. The lead story is about the recent announcement of Stewart’s IGA in Reidsville closing at the end of this month. Of course, graduations are this weekend and we have a story on the events at Tattnall County High School and Pinewood Christian Academy. Look on the May 10 post for this year’s commemorative Graduation Edition. Shannon and Sterling Sharpe were in town over the weekend and were honored with the dedication of the football field at Glennville Middle School (former Glennville High School) in their name as “Sharpe Field.” The two both spoke at the event and visited and signed autographs for fans. Additionally, the following day, both Sharpe brothers served as Grand Marshals in the 36th annual Glennville Sweet Onion Festival Parade and again, they signed autographs for nearly an hour for their friends and fans. Rounding out the front page is an announcement from Dale Kicklighter with his intentions of running for reelection for the Tattnall County Board of Education.

Be sure to check out the inside pages this week too! Along with lots of photos from the Sharpe Field dedication and Onion Festival, there are also over four pages of photos from Tattnall County High School’s Honors Day program and a full page on the TCHS Spring Sports Banquet.

The January 19 edition of the Journal leads off with the sad story of a National Guardsman, Sgt. Steven Coghlan, who was killed after his vehicle hit a Tattnall County School bus. Another story highlights the successful Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. parade held over the weekend. The other two front page stories involve U.S. postal rates going up and a South Georgia conference on growing organic crops.
