Health Grades

By Cheryl Thurston

Health GradesHow many of us went out to eat in September? Was that before the hurricane or after? With all the storm damage and flooding it was difficult to get out of the house for a week or two. A few places remained open during the storm because they had generators, but many lost any food supplies they had when the electricity was out for days. If you are like me, you were concerned about family, friends and neighbors and also very grateful to have survived Florence’s onslaught. For those who lost loved ones or household possessions, I’m sorry for your losses and hope your recovery will be swift.

As usual, the hard-working folks over at the Bladen County Health Department went out on their monthly rounds to complete sanitation inspections in our local eateries. The list for September is short due to the hurricane making normal procedures impossible, but our friendly, family oriented restaurant, Galigo’s, retains their 100% score yet again. Also as usual, BladenOnline.com is happy to bring this report to you, as you resume your habits of dining out. Bon Appetité.
