This week’s front page has two big stories at the top. Last week, the news circulated that a 14-year-old girl was kidnapped from Glennville. Later she was found in Norcross, GA, after she called home. Apparently she had met the 24-year-old in an online site and the two had been talking. He is facing charges of interference with custody and statutory rape.
The Veterans’ Memorial Park was officially dedicated last Saturday, November 10 and Senator Jack Hill was the guest speaker. The park is located behind the old Alexander Hotel in Reidsville and offers a paved walking path with memorial markers along the way to remember those lost from Tattnall County to the different wars and conflicts.
Tuesday afternoon, November 13, a report came through that an air conditioner unit had been stolen from the former Stewarts IGA in Reidsville. PCA’s JV football team is undefeated for the season and are the SPAL Champions too. Tattnall County High School, as well as the other schools in the county, held a program to salute the county’s veterans for Veterans Day on Monday, November 12.
