Date: 
Friday, January 1, 1932 to Saturday, December 31, 1932
Notes: 

TMT: I am dating this as the true present tense of the story because "two years ago" the town had an offer to "purchase and remove" the water tower (168) and Suratt apparently still lives in the county. I've located this event as in Jefferson because that's where the townsfolk hear the news and because "the county" where Suratt lives is obviously Yoknapatawpha and not an option in our drop-down menus.

Summary: 

V.K. Suratt brought the first news of Flem Snopes' "doings" to Jefferson.
