Robert Hester, Founder of BladenOnline.comFind it difficult to believe today is the last day of February, 2022 … Think someone hit ‘fast forward’…

Hope you enjoyed the weekend … Spent considerable time reading ‘The Spirit to Soar’ … The True Story of Former Orphan & POW, Lt. Col. Barry B. Bridger, US Air Force (Ret) … Great book … No idea where it could be purchased … Google????, it was released in 2022…

Average high temp for March in Bladen County is near 71, average low 42 and average rainfall 4 inches … Not sure February was a normal month … Temps as high as mid 80s.

Plantin’ time now far away…

Still think about ‘breaking land’ with a 2 horse turn plow … I would have volunteered to empty all the trash cans at school, if I had had a choice…

Speaking of spring … anyone seen a ‘tobacco plant bed’ in recent years, anywhere in the area?

If you are serious about ‘running for public office’ I suggest you call or visit the Bladen County Board of Elections … And if you have always thought you would like to become a ‘public servant’, just do it … Not recruiting, just encouraging if you are leaning in that direction … Been there and done that, served 2 4-year terms as County Commissioner … Did not seek a third term, changed jobs and moved on…

Weather forecast for Bladen County … Sunny today, with a high near 62 … Mostly clear tonight with a low around 33. Tuesday, sunny with a high near 67 … No forecast for rain over the next week or so…
