Robert Hester, Founder of BladenOnline.comFor the past 2 or 3 days, BladenOnline has had more than our share of issues … technical issues … Problems above our pay grade … with the folks who provide the website … Our apologies … When I woke early this AM prepared to begin a new day … I thought of the old Ray Charles tune … ‘It’s Crying Time Again’ … but better days are just ahead…

A salute to the Campbell family … Mac and Sylvia … They are the 2022 Braves Club Members of the Year … by UNCP … Pembroke State University … and so deserving … Congratulations…

The closing of the Cape Fear River Bridge for a couple of hours a day that was set to begin Monday, has been ‘pushed’ back a day. Will begin Tuesday for several weeks … Updates later…

Carolina Panthers done a little ‘wheelin’ and dealin’, moved up in the NFL draft and selected Old Miss QB Matt Corral … and, according to news services, still have not ruled out the possibility of attempting to ‘land’ Baker Mayfield, the disgruntled Cleveland Browns QB…

I remember hearing some of me elders saying someone was going to ‘sorry away’, meaning they were no good … useless … whatever … Sometimes as I grow older I wonder if I am ‘sorrying away’.

Mostly sunny today with a high near 82 degrees. Tonight, mostly cloudy, gradually becoming clear, with a low around 66. Sunday (church day) sunny with a high near 87 … wind gust as high as 16 mph … hold on to your bonnet…

40 years ago this spring (1982) baseball coach Jim Baldwin and ECU bound Winfred Johnson lead the East Bladen Cougars to a state championship … Hope I did not steal someone else’s thunder…
