Thoughts While ShavingSaturday was one busy day in Bladen County and BladenOnline provided coverage for most…
How about American Pharoah?  The first Triple Crown Winner since 1978 when Affirmed won, Seattle Slew pulled off all three wins in ’77 and Secretariat was a Triple Crown Winner in 1973. 
Following the sports line…..The 2nd game of the NBA Championship series will be played today with the Golden State Warriors up 1-0 on the Cleveland Cavaliers.
It’s budget time for our units of local governments….not as difficult for towns but for the county attempting to fund so many different agencies and many of the agencies also depending on the state government, and approval of a state budget is never easy….But when we voted for our leaders, they had all the answers….Budget related meetings are planned, beginning on Monday….Local budgets must be approved by June 30….a date set years ago by state government that fails, more often than not, in meeting that date.
I am amazed at the efforts of many of our local folks who spend so much time giving back to the community….organizing events that many times benefit a large number of us….They work without pay, with few resources and they keep on giving….THANK YOU.
Happiness is like a butterfly, which when pursued is just beyond our grasp, but which if you will sit down quietly may alight upon you.
If you give and don’t expect anything back that’s love.  But if you give and expect a return it’s an investment.
Be careful about reading health books.  You may die of a misprint.  (Mark Twain)
