thoughts while shavingThis could/should be a day to remember, if all goes as planned. Little has been said, but a huge announcement is expected about a new EDC project that could be a red-letter day for Bladen County and the Town of Elizabethtown … An announcement is expected around noon time … “Bout all I know”…

Understand organizers have spent many hours working thru details…

Bladen County has been losing population in recent years … Need jobs to keep young folks in the area … need experienced workers for the new venture…

Yesterday’s high temp actually occurred last night … 54 degrees and windy, all day long … Expect similar conditions today…

Sunny with a high near 54, more north wind, with gusts as high as 16 mph. Clear skies tonight with a low around 29 … Winds will calm down some. Thursday, mostly sunny with a high near 60 and less wind … Looking ahead, Saturday, mostly cloudy with a high in the low 70s … Chance of rain near 60% Sunday night and Monday … Something for everyone.

To cold to plant now, but many fields throughout the area appear ready for planting…

About as much cash spread around the area as I have heard of in a long time … Legislature appropriated a great deal in last session and non-profits like Golden Leaf have been awarding funds in the area … About a quarter of a million dollars in the area … Bladen, Columbus, Robeson and Scotland in recent days … Probably similar situations in other counties statewide.

Not sure if politics are worse than in the past, seems the news sources are busy ‘stirring the pot’ … Elections upcoming soon to North Carolina, including Bladen County.

Results form last night’s ACC basketball action…
Clemson 80 – UNC 76
Wake Forest 80 – Georgia Tech 51
Florida State 63 – Boston College 62

Tonight … 7 PM
Pitt at NC State
Louisville at Syracuse
9 PM, Notre Dame at Duke…

Stock market doing well…

Sad news King of England suffering from cancer … Country singer Toby Keith dies after suffering with cancer for some time…

“The advantage of growing up with siblings is, you get good with fractions.”

“In times of adversity, the true character of a leader is revealed.

“Everything comes to you at the right time, be patient.”
