This week’s Tattnall Journal is one of those weeks where we wish we had two front pages! There were so many stories that normally would have started out on page one, but we just ran out of space. Those that did make it on the front include an update on the status of Southeastern Tech’s Glennville campus; the Collins boys basketball team winning the Region trophy; Kenny Murphy, TCHS senior, signed a full scholarship with Valdosta State to play football starting in the fall; Glennville’s Dr. Jim Strickland was named the Tattnall Soil and Water Conservationist of the Year; a Collins home was found to be housing over 100 marijuana plants; and, election time is only a few months away … this week Eddie Anderson announced his intention to seek re-election as Chief Magistrate Judge, and Daniel Shuman announced his intention to run for second district County Commissioner once again.
Be sure to browse through the pages inside too (click the image below to read the paper). There’s lots of news packed into this week’s paper … including a love story about a 60 year marriage; a nine-year-old Collins boy winning five races on Tybee (over 26 miles in all); and a tour of the new county jail that is now housing inmates.
Obituaries this week:
Sue Haire Jordan, age 80
James “Skinny” Porter, age 87
