This is a huge day for local sports fans…

Bladen County Dixie Pre-Majors baseball team will play their first World Series game today. Opponent is Monroe, Louisiana, game time is 11 a.m. The game is being played in Sterlington, Louisiana … and plans are for it to be streamed live on Ispn.live. Not sure about a fee from the network. Visit our Sports page and click on Ispn.live … and hopefully all goes as planned. Best of luck to the Bladen County team.

The Elizabethtown Minors All-Star team will travel to Ruston, Louisiana, about 50 miles from Sterlington, on Thursday for its World Series. A fundraiser is planned for 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. today (Saturday) at Leinwand Park. Food, music, fun … check Thursday’s Thoughts While Shaving for a more complete line-up of activities. Donations are still welcomed. Players, coaches and supporters welcome all.

One-liners recently making the rounds….

My luck is like a bald guy who just won a comb.

If you answer the phone with “Hello, you’re on the air” most telemarketers will quickly hang up.

When one door closes and another opens, you are probably in prison.

I finally got 8 hours of sleep. It took me three days, but whatever.

It’s the start of a brand new day, and I’m off like a herd of turtles.
