Basketball season is over for both Bladen County High Schools. Clinton boys 50, West Bladen 45 and in girls play Roanoke Rapids 70, East Bladen 56. John Clark has captured the details on our sports page. It was a good year for both local teams.
Thoughts now turn to spring sports.
Rainfall has been scarce this month, could be the driest February ever.
Think back to ‘breaking ground’ with a pair of mules or horses or combination, and a 2-horse turnplow. In dry weather, if was not difficult to locate, just look for the cloud of dust. As a youngster, I was ready to play after many work days, but ‘breaking ground’ would leave little energy or desire for anything but a good nights rest.
I realize I may sound like a broken record, but the new Bladen County Detention Center is nearing completion. It has been a long, difficult, expensive task, but much needed.
Now, Bladen County leaders are scheduled to turn their attention to public education. A Special Joint Meeting of Commissioners and members of the Board of Education is planned for Monday, March 6, 2017 to discus budget and capital needs related to Bladen County Schools. Some tough decisions need to be addressed.
A new traffic pattern is taking shape in the Elizabethtown Post Office parking lot. Has been under construction for some time. Will be nice, and construction of the new Hardees is moving forward.
All computers wait at the same speed.
Any program that runs right is obsolete.
My printer consists of three main parts: the case, the jammed paper tray and the blinking red light.
