Thoughts While Shaving

A little of this and a little of that:  Lots of sports news.
Clint Boyer broke a 190 race losing streak to capture the snow-delayed race in Martinsville NASCAR race yesterday and John Hunter Nemechek eaked out a win over Kyle Benjamin in the truck series.  Timothy Peters finished 7th in the Ricky Benton Racing team’s #92 Ford truck from Cerro Gordo, NC.

Windy Christy of Lumberton earned the right to apply to enter one of the most prestigious marathons ever, the Boston Marathon.  Christy, a PA at the Gibson Cancer Center in Lumberton, recently ran a 26.2 mile course in 3:45:00 to finish seventh in the 35-39 age group, the 30th fastest female.  There were 241 competing.  She is the spouse of UNC Pembroke AD Dick Christy.

Hope you will read an article by Tom Campbell in our Southeastern Times category related to the workforce in North Carolina and apparently nationwide.  About more jobs than qualified applicants.  Applies to Bladen County as well.

Four County has scholarships for high school graduates planning on attending local community colleges and for middle school students interested in attending basketball camps at UNC and NCSU.  GOOGLE Four County and search for info, including deadlines for entries, some fast approaching.

CBS 60 minutes had the highest ratings in 10 years Sunday night to watch the interview by Anderson Cooper with Stormy Daniels about her alleged affair with President Trump.  22.1 million viewers tuned in.

Check the US Debt Clock.  Maybe add to favorites.  There is also a state by state Debt Clock.  NC leaders must balance the state budget annually, but there is debt, my guess, all approved over the years by residents for roads and construction for higher education facilities, as well as other public purpose projects, but nothing like the US Debt Clock.  GOOGLE to see either.

Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.  The important thing is not to stop questioning.  Albert Einstein
