Robert Hester, Founder of BladenOnline.comFolks all around know about many of the ‘things to do in Bladen’ … golfing, skiing, fishing, tons of fun at White Lake and more, but are you aware of Brown’s Creek Bike Park and Nature Trail? … It’s in the Elizabethtown city limits across the street from the entrance to Cape Fear River fishing and boating site on East Broad Street, headed toward the airport. This weekend, it attracted a goodly number of folks who look forward to action at the park annually. I am not an expert at anything, but can guide you to the site where you can learn about a sport for all ages … Google Cape Fear SORBA, with headquarters in Wilmington … Another good reason to visit Bladen … A busy place this past weekend…

Much more interesting this past weekend than watching the Carolina Panthers … Oops, sorry.

Did you check out the fun and food at the Pork & Beats Festival in Elizabethtown this past weekend?…

Joey Logano captured his second NASCAR championship…

Tomorrow is election day in the good old USA…

And, how about $1.9 billion Powerball drawing tonight … That’s the number being tossed about … Purchase your tickets and if your ticket is drawn, Uncle Sam is a bigger winner than you are … I know, the winner will be happy … collects an estimated $929 million, but over half of the winnings will be awarded to Uncle Sam who spent $0 dollars … Oh, yes, if I were to win, I would not quibble … Still not right. At my age few chances to become a multimillionaire … all the others slipped away.

Sunny today with a high near 84. Mostly clear tonight, low around 56 and windy. Tuesday, fall like weather … High near 70 with wind gusts as high as 18 mph.

I’m better, I think … Thanks for asking.
