On this week’s front page, the Glennville Dairy Queen was saluted for raising $18,012 this year for the Children’s Miracle Network! They had set a personal goal of $15,000 for the store and greatly surpassed it. In other news, the Primary Election was held Tuesday, July 31 and three local positions had opposition. Donna Tootle beat out Dale Kicklighter for Board of Education in District Five and Marilyn Carter is a newcomer to the BOE’s District Three, although she did not have opposition. For Tattnall County Commissioner, both Edward Kennedy and Daniel Shuman retained their seats for District One and District Two. You can view all of the results from the Tattnall County voters on the Georgia Secretary of State’s website by clicking HERE.
Also on the front page, Reidsville Veterinarian Steve Lynn and his wife, Miriam, were seriously injured after their golf cart was struck by a truck driven by James Allen Sikes, who was charged with failure to maintain lane; driving with suspended or revoked license; DUI for alcohol; and following too close.
The Tattnall County Warriors are conducting practices and getting ready for the upcoming football season, as well as trying to combat the high temperatures outside. Also, HeritageBank of the South made the announcement that it will be closing the branch in Collins, GA.
Don’t forget to keep an eye out for the children as they start back to school in the next few days: Tattnall County public school students return to class on Wednesday, August 8 and Pinewood Christian returns to school on August 17.
