Bladen County Commissioners meet at 6:30 p.m. today.
Local governments in Bladen (city and county) and around the state are working on new budgets that go into effect on July 1. The same law applies to the state, expect some action in Raleigh this week and next, but little hope for anything positive at the federal level. Both parties contribute to the stalemate, and have for years.
Speaking of government, another election is set for June 7. We have the opportunity to vote for US House representatives and NC Supreme Court.
After the latest redistricting effort by the NC legislature, it is no wonder candidates like Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders are attracting huge crowds. It is a sham & a shame, and both parties have contributed to the lack of trust by the public over the years, most recently it has been the Republicans. They learned from the D’s. Trump and Sanders are apparently not seen as a part of the establishment. One newcomer and one socialist, who would have dreamed????
The Elizabethtown Inn is a nice addition to the area. According to Chris Adams, they had a full-house Friday night. We wish him, and all the others providing new housing accommodations in the area, the best.
The annual White Lake Water Festival will be held this weekend. Remember when it was the Blueberry Festival? Either way, it is always a huge success and draws a crowd.
One more call for the possibility of more jobs in the area. Welders, metal working type jobs could be coming to the area. Just need to know if there is a workforce available. Send resume or a paragraph related to training and experience to firstname.lastname@example.org. Do it today.
About two weeks remains for students this school year.
