Thoughts While Shaving

Thoughts While ShavingI have been checking the news and sports pages for local happenings and I amazed at all the coverage of Bladen County events by BladenOnline.

*Round-a-bout discussion at Bladen Community College, well attended
*GenX update
*White Lake water issues being addressed
*Elizabethtown police ask for assistance in solving local carjacking
*Bladenboro man sentenced for firing into an apartment
*Political filing update
*Bladen County students honored for ECU achievements
*Bladen County Beta Club members excel at state-wide events
*Scores and achievements by local high school athletes.

I realize events at the state and national level affect us daily, but so do local events and if not for the staff at BladenOnline, who will cover and report?  Charlotte Smith, Erin Smith, John Clark and other part-timers provide constant updates.  They do an excellent job and deserve a pat-on-the-back, daily.  Oh yes, BladenOnline circulation continues to increase, and the subscription  remains the same—FREE.

Maybe they should cover occasional lunch time get-togethers under the ‘barn shelter’ near Tar Heel, actually the latest edition was held inside the barn, due to weather.  Lot’s of conversation, delicious chicken ‘n rice and an occasional yarn.  All you ever needed to know about most any topic.

Happy Valentine to all the lovely ladies!

It’s amazing that the amount of news that happens in the world every day always just exactly fits the newspaper.  Jerry Seinfeld

Believe it or not, Christianity is not about good people getting better.  If anything, it is good news for bad people coping with their failure to be good.  Author Unknown

You can find poetry in your everyday life, your memory, in what people say on the bus, in the news, or just what’s in your heart.  Carol Ann Duffy
