Bladenboro Christmas Parade tomorrow (Saturday) morning….
Had a request for Debbie Heustess from someone interested in making a donation to her Elf Angels effort, if my memory is correct the 12th annual. She purchases new gifts for youngsters who may not have Christmas without her efforts. Mail to Debbie Heustess, PO Box 746, Clarkton, NC 28433…
Want to have a better Christmas? Do something good for someone. It could be an answer to someone’s prayer! Anonymous is good…
Lumberton, Junior High students are wearing purple today in memory of Hania Aguilar, their classmate who was found dead this week after being ‘snatched up’ recently. Purple was her favorite color….Keep her family and friends in your thoughts and prayers…as well as those seeking her killer(s).
NFL action last night: Cowboys 13 – Saints 10. Just the second loss of the year for the Saints…
Farmers in Bladen and 60 other NC counties have a few days remaining to seek assistance for losses suffered to commodities not harvested before Sept. 13, 2018 and livestock….before Hurricane Michael. The N.C. General Assembly approved a $240 million relief bill recently, but you need to act soon. Call NCDA&CS disaster hotline at 1-866-645-9403. Time is short.
Now, on behalf of all at BladenOnline, I have some great news….With 32 days remaining in 2018, page views for the year have set a new yearly record for the paper….Our total, as of about noontime Thursday was 6,624,143. The previous record for all of 2017 was 6,621,543 page views. Who would have ever dreamed when it all began 11 1/2 years ago. We discovered a need and filled it and you, the public responded and we are so pleased. Thank you seems so inadequate, but THANK YOU….Charlotte, Erin and the entire cast work hard everyday to earn your support and respect, and The Best Is Yet To Come.
Success is 1% inspiration and 99% work.
There is no elevator to success. You must take the stairs.
Success is not a destination. It’s a way to travel.
