A late night tweet from President Trump indicated the U.S. has reached an agreement with Mexico that heads off the start of tariffs on Monday. One tweet down, no doubt, more to come.

We’ve come a long way … remember when we sent messages on a penny post card.

Still no rain, well, no measureable rainfall in many areas. Still have high hopes…

In 1952, Bladen County had three county commissioners. That changed in 1954 to five, then in the mid to late ’80s it increased to 9.

Population
1950 was 29,703,
1980 — 30,491,
2010 — 35,190,
2014 — 35,179,
2019 — 35,165

Population is decreasing, number of commissioners tripled. Nothing to do with anyone serving today, changes occurred over the years, before their time on the board.

Three commissioners in 1952 were M.L. (Milton) Fisher, Luther Brisson and C.A. Priest.

If you are traveling this weekend … drive safely. Number of vehicles on the roads constantly increasing … or so it seems.

Congratulations to all graduates at all levels.

“Your life is your story, and the adventure ahead of you is the journey to fulfill your own purpose and potential.” Kerry Washington

“Graduation is not the end; it’s the beginning.” Senator Orin Hatch

“When you take risks, you learn that there will be times when you succeed and there will be times when you fail, and both are equally important.” Ellen DeGeneres
