Thoughts While Shaving for July 20

Filing for municipal elections ended at noontime Friday, busy time at the Bladen County Board of Elections. All the results are on our Politics page. … About as much activity as seen in recent years. Bladenboro, Elizabethtown and White Lake incumbents have opposition. Tar Heel Mayor Roy Dew is unopposed and Sam Allen filed for another term as Commissioner. No one filed for the other 2 commissioner seats … to be determined by write-ins. We have all the info.

Some or maybe all county residents received tax bill yesterday. If you did not, bet you will soon. New fiscal year began July 1. … The tax notice is our reminder.

Full court press underway to raise $s for the local Dixie Youth baseball team headed to Louisiana for national playoffs. The money raised will be used for travel, lodging, food, etc. to support the team. All contributions appreciated.
