On this week’s front page were two headline stories involving Cobbtown. In the first, Keith Harvey was honored as Cobbtown’s Citizen of the Year. Other nominees for the annual award were George Holland and Charles & Karen Rushton.
Also making headlines in Cobbtown was the rescue of a worker high atop the Cobbtown water tower. The worker had been making repairs inside of the tank when he passed out from apparent heat exhaustion. Crews were brought in from surrounding counties to transport him safely to the ground.
Tattnall County High School’s graduation is May 24 at 8 p.m. at Warrior Stadium.
