This week’s Tattnall Journal leads off with the announcement of Shannon and Sterling Sharpe to be honored as Grand Marshals at this year’s Glennville Sweet Onion Festival in May. In addition, there are plans to name the football field at Glennville Middle School “Sharpe Field” in honor of the brothers, who both began at that football field and then excelled in the NFL.
Other front page stories include the Tattnall Shrine Club being awarded Alee Shrine Club of the Year for 2011; Hannah Creighton winning the Tattnall Spelling Bee; a home in Reidsville was badly burned Monday night; and three men were arrested for various burglaries in the area.
