If you were in the downtown Elizabethtown area yesterday morning, you probably saw about 90 Elizabethtown Primary School 1st graders walking hand ‘n hand to various public agencies.  I was told the youngsters visited a court session, the police department, the fire department and met the sheriff, as well as other officials.  A busy, but educational day.

Today, Special Olympics at Elizabethtown Middle School.  A huge hit for participants and their families and friends.  The public is invited.  Activities begin at 10 a.m.

Great article recently about a nice young lady.  A. Miller Heustess will graduate from East Bladen and Bladen Community College in a few days and will enter Campbell University as a Junior.  She also participated in a nearly full-time sports career at East Bladen.  Amazing student headed toward a career in pharmacy.

Today, we highlight the 1977 Lennon’s Cross Road baseball team.  Team members included; Paul Evans, Durand Ransom, Craig Mayes, Guy Evans, Betty Bryan, Reggie Cain, Anna Peninger, Ray Tedder, Kevin Kinlaw, and Craig Ellis.  Coaches were Charles Ellis, Steve Ransom and Billy Kinlaw.

I’ll be honest.  I did not graduate at the top of my class.  In fact, I was so close to the bottom, my sheepskin had a tail.

The trouble with learning from experience is that you never graduate.  Doug Larson

You cannot get to the top by sitting on your bottom.  Proverb
