Thank you.  After spending most of a rainy morning on the computer, I have also so discovered that I may have a Magnesium Deficiency.  

My leaves:

One of the images I have found:

My ground has a high pH and is high in potassium and phosphorus.  I read also that this combination can lead to a magnesium deficiency.

Thanks for all the help

Jay. After looking at the photos I would guess that if the leaf defects did not appear on the newer growth and only on the leaves you removed you might just need to feed them more. A good shot of fertilizer cures many ills. Bob.

I think I am starting to see some signs of Early Blight in my High Tunnel tomatoes.  What are my options? I was planning on removing any and all leaves  that look infected and spray with a fungicide every 7-10 days.  What else should I do?

Thanks
