I am enjoying the Golden Days of Clarkton Facebook page or pages. Brings back so many memories of festive occasions over the years. Really enjoy the pics posted.

Spent a few nights in a warehouse over the years … Clarkton Tobacco Festival.

Bladenboro folks are preparing for Beast Fest 2019. This year’s event is set for October 26. … More info coming.

BladenOnline has a new look. Charlotte Smith has spent hours & days updating. … We appreciate.

FYI, secret warfare training is underway in 21 counties across the state, according to sources. Bladen is not one of the 21, but Robeson and Cumberland are. Be aware!

Check our sports page for high school sporting events … time and places.

Football tends to get the most attention this time of year, but there are others.

Speaking of football … rivalries are fun. Pre-conference games for East Bladen nearly always involve Wallace Rose Hill or Clinton or both … two annual powerhouses. Then, in conference play, Whiteville and West Bladen. Hope the weather cooperates Friday (tomorrow) night for openers at East and West Bladen.

Speaking of the weather, a quick look … slight chance of showers and thunderstorms today … sunny with high near 91. Tonight, a 20% chance of rain, windy with gusts up to 18 mph, low in the mid 70s.

For Friday, a chance of showers and thunderstorms (30% chance). High near 90, heat values near 100, and windy. Friday night, a 50% chance of precipitation, mostly cloudy with lows in the mid 70s and windy, with gusts up to 20 mph.

Normal for this time of year. I still miss broadcasting Bladen County high school football. Need a FM station to be successful, and not one available.
