Our high reached 97 degrees yesterday and that tied a 2010 record. No Heat Advisory today…for the first time in 10 days to 2 weeks, maybe longer….Our high temp is expected to be 91 degrees today, 98 Friday, 91 Saturday and 86 degrees on Sunday and Monday. We have a 40 to 60 percent chance of rain today through Sunday…..and we really could use some rain.
We all tend to live in our own little world….For the past couple of weeks, I have ‘anchored down’ at home, and remembered the days when that was not an option. Some prefer hot weather, some cooler weather…..I like spring and fall….
Bladen commissioners meet at 1 p.m. Friday to deal with an issue related to Medicaid Transportation. Commissioners approved the FY 2015-2016 budget on Monday….complete with an 8 cents tax increase. The new rate will be 82 cents.
And a reminder of the Open House at Southeastern Carolina Crossroads, a rehab center for men with addictions. The event is planned for Sunday, June 28th from 2-4 p.m. Rev. Bruce Cannon; David Chestnutt, Executive Director and Rep. William Brisson will be on hand. The location is 1086 Susie Sandhill Road, Elizabethtown, NC. Everyone is invited…parking could be a problem, so load up the car or van and head over the river and through the woods…..
The new Dublin Medical Center is taking shape….It is located on the lot that housed Dr. Robert Summerlin’s office for years…It is another investment in the county by Cape Fear Medical Systems.
Check our Events section and plan accordingly.
It was a day ’bout like yesterday when a brother and a friend and I decided to purchase a pack of cigarettes and prove our manhood…It was a sickening event and maybe helped at least two young Hester boys decide they were not ‘man’ enough to ‘light them up and smoke.’
Fools learn from experience. Wise men learn from the experience of others. Otto von Bismark
When the well’s dry, we know the worth of water. Ben Franklin
The measure of greatness is not found in your accomplishments. It’s in how much discouragement it takes to stop you.
It is not what you gather but what you scatter that tells what kind of life you have lived.
