At the top of this week’s front page, Joe English was selected as the recipient of a Monsanto $2,500 grant to be given to the organization of his choice in Tattnall County. In addition, because Tattnall had been declared a disaster county due to the droughts, he got a matching $2,500 grant. The two organizations he chose as recipients were the Tattnall County High School FFA and Tattnall County Young Farmers.
Also headlining this week’s paper was the arrest of brothers Dean and Ronnie McLeod. They were both arrested by the Tattnall County Sheriff’s Department for performing illegal work on a county road.
WTOC’s Dal Cannady has been on a 96-mile multi-county walk to raise money for the American Red Cross. This past week he made the walk through Tattnall County and met up with local folks.
The late Gerald Dasher, of G&R Farms in Glennville, was posthumously inducted into the Vidalia Onion Hall of Fame during a special ceremony held in February.
And finally, the TCHS Warriors have ended their basketball season. The Warriors lost in the Elite Eight round of the state playoffs against Johnson High School in Savannah.
