Did you see the recent article making the rounds about the young man, college graduate who walked 20 miles, just about all night long to be on time for his new job? Great article, helped along by a policeman and rewarded by his new boss, who gave him an auto after he witnessed the determination by his new employee. GOOGLE Walter Carr.
Town of Elizabethtown will celebrate the recently renovated Tory Hole Park with a Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony, Monday, July 23, at 11 AM and all are invited. A nice addition to the town.

Another golf champ in the county. Bizzle Pate, son of Chip and Myra Pate of Elizabethtown, won the fourth flight 3 and 1 in the 22nd NC Junior boys championship in the 13 and under age group. The tournament played recently at Asheboro Municipal course. Will Spicer of Kings Mountain was the overall winner. Pate is related to Cade Hancock who continues to make a name for himself. Guess it runs in the family. John Clark captures it all on our sports page.
Congratulations to East Bladen’s Trevares Carter, who has committed to Louisburg College where he will run Track as he continues his education.
So, what’s on your bucket list? Wish I was a good golfer, but not sure of the talent and not willing to put forth the effort, so I deleted that one from my list.
