Thoughts While Shaving for July 9

Thoughts While ShavingFor many, after a week off, “back in the saddle again”.  Back to a normal routine.

Bladen County Commissioners meet at 6:30 p.m. for regular session and Elizabethtown City Council holds a work session at 12 noon and meets in regular session at 7 p.m..  Both are a week late due to July 4th holiday.  The Bladenboro Town Council meets at 7 p.m. in regular session. All meetings are open to the public.

Think I used this recently, but worth repeating——-Most of us want mercy for ourselves, but justice for others.

Job market is as ‘tight’ as we have seen in a while.  Maybe the perfect time to check with Bladen Community College about more education, maybe a technical skill.

Our statistician has been ‘out of place’ for a few days, but we have results of past couple of weeks for BladenOnline.
