Thoughts While Shaving

Enjoy this last day of winter, 2018.  Weather forecast for today, should be much like yesterday, maybe a few degrees cooler with lots of sunshine and high temp around 60 degrees.

Bladen County Commissioners meet in Kelly at 6 p.m. this evening at Centerville Baptist Church.  Purpose of the meeting is to receive comments, suggestions regarding the White Oak Dike Levee System, which failed during the most recent storm and flooded the area.  Some folks, I am told, are still not back in their homes.  Centerville Baptist Church is located at 18577 NC 53 East, Kelly, NC.  Area residents are encouraged to attend.

Commissioners will hold another Special Meeting Thursday, 10 a.m. to address planning issues and to discuss the FY 2019-20 budget.  The meeting will be held at the Mac Campbell, Sr. Terminal Building, at Elizabethtown Airport.  Actual address is 466 Airport Road.

Jobs are coming to Bladen, not just coming, they are here.  For details, visit the local Employment Security Agency, near Elizabethtown Primary School for details.

Bladen EDC, Bladen Agri-Industrial, Bladen Committee of 100 and Bladen County Commissioners are currently in one stage or another of building spec buildings, one in the Elizabethtown Industrial Park and another is in the Bladenboro Industrial Park..

Can’t think of a reason why the unemployment rate in Bladen should not be low, very low.  Jobs are available, and if training is needed, Bladen Community College is the place to go to improve your resume.

Inspecting mirrors is a job I could really see myself doing.

I focused on being a photographer, but nothing ever developed.

I cannot pull myself up by tearing others down.
