East Bladen Eagles baseball team will be on the road today, headed to Newport to play unbeaten Croatan in the first round of the 2A high school baseball tournament … Croatan is seeded #1 with a 14-0 record. East Bladen has a 9-4 record and seeded #8. Game time is 7 p.m. today … Best of luck to a talented group of youngsters. Grant Pait is EB coach … We wish them well…

Southeastern Carolina Crossroads does great work … They work with males who are addicted to alcohol and drugs … They are located in the Bladen Lakes State Forest … They operate on faith … Some can afford to pay a small fee, some come with personal items in a bag … They deserve our support … Mail contributions to 1086 Susie Sandhill Road, Elizabethtown, NC, 28337 or drop off at Bladen Baptist office, 137 Mercer Mill Road, Elizabethtown, NC.

There is another organization that works with females, but not the same group or location … Bet the folks at Bladen Baptist can provide info…

The North Carolina Department of Transportation is encouraging disadvantaged businesses to compete for state transportation contracts and will be hosting a workshop in Fayetteville later this month … NCDOT awards contracts in many areas including mowing, litter pickup, landscaping, snow and ice removal, traffic control, painting, striping and road construction, according to the news release. More info on our news page…

I am among men mostly richly blessed, even more so when I do not get ‘bogged down’ in political rhetoric … local, state and at the federal level … Don’t talk it but make sure I vote … in every election I am eligible to do so…

Speaking of elections, municipal elections are usually held in years with odd numbers … like this year … Maybe updates soon.

Summer arrives Sunday…
