Robert Hester, Founder of BladenOnline.comHot weather, weeds are growing, NFL football season on the verge of preseason play … actually, one game played last night … The NFL Hall of Fame game … Raiders defeated the Jacksonville Jags 27-11. Action continues Thursday, August 11 … New York Giants vs. New England Patriots and Tennessee Titans vs. Baltimore Ravens … week one of preseason play … Former East Bladen High School and NC State’s Larrell Murchison is a Titan … Tennessee Titan. A huge defensive lineman, now in his 3rd season…

Weeds continue to grow … and temps continue in the 90-plus degree range…

A 20% chance of rain in Bladen today. Partly sunny with a high near 93, heat values in the 101 range … Partly cloudy tonight, low around 72. Saturday, a 40% chance of rain after 2 p.m. Mostly sunny, with a high near 92, heat index values as high as 103.

Too dang hot to cut grass … or anything else outside, but for many, their work is outside and they adjust…

Received a note recently from Dr. Susan Aycock, who practiced in Bladen County for several years … She is involved in a project related to cervical cancer and has a friend who has a Gofundme page … More info at Dr. Aycock shared the site info for Meredith Parker who is organizing this effort. There is much info on the page … Hope I got it right … Thanks Dr. Aycock for making all aware…

Had a report from a friend about water rescue from the Cape Fear River late yesterday … could have been very bad, but a brave soul came to the rescue … More later, hopefully…
