Looking forward to a new week. Before looking ahead, a quick peek at last week.
Folks had another successful fund-raiser for one of their own. Noah Deaver is dealing with health issues….friends raised nearly $28,000 for him Saturday. Say what you will, the Bladenboro volunteers spring into action when needed. 4-7 p.m. $28,000. The whole community comes together. Done it for years, and no doubt will do it again, when needed. Help begins at home.
An invitation to all. A Peace Officers Memorial Ceremony will be held Wednesday at the Bladen County Sheriff’s office in the jail…299 Smith Circle, Elizabethtown. Fallen heroes will be remembered, those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our county, state and nation. Begins at 10 a.m.
We have been a little slack when it comes to updating BladenOnline stats. Sometimes, kinda falls in a hole when we get busy, but we will begin updates more often, beginning with March 10-16. We had the 5th most visits in a week in BladenOnline history. Visits have remained constant, and views over 100,000, weekly.

Life not only begins at forty, it also begins to show.
Age doesn’t always bring wisdom. Sometimes age comes alone.
An optimist thinks that this is the best possible world. A pessimist fears that this is true. (If you don’t know, a pessimist is an experienced optimist)
