This week’s front page starts out with a tragic story that turns into a heroic one … Annie Will Joyce’s home, in Reidsville, caught fire over the weekend and her mail carrier, Glenda Durrence, noticed the smoke, called 911 and went into the burning home to pull Ms. Joyce outside to safety. Ms. Joyce suffered burns and is in Augusta for treatment, but she is alive, thanks to Glenda!
Wayne Dasher, of Glennville, was re-appointed to another five-year term as a member of the Georgia Board of Corrections and recently met with Governor Nathan Deal. Dr. Gina Williams, Superintendent of Tattnall County schools, spoke to the Retired Educators about school issues. And, Republican voters in Tattnall County are reminded about next Tuesday’s run-off election (August 21) which features Rick Allen against Lee Anderson for the seat of District 12 U.S. House of Representatives. The winner of the run-off will face Democratic Incumbent John Barrow in the General Election November 6, 2012.
