Robert Hester, Founder of BladenOnline.comTo early to determine winners and losers in yesterday’s elections … Want to see results, Google NCSBE: Home Page … click on Election results … see unofficial results by county, office and contest … Will take a few days for final totals to be displayed…

As I watched from home last night, I was reminded of the 1974 election. I was a successful candidate for Bladen County Commissioner … Served 8 years … Never ran again … I served with several distinguished officials … All deceased today, except me … Thankful for the experience … cured my desire to serve in an elected position … forever and ever…

One more thought about my experience in politics. Years and years ago, there were no computers … Ballots were counted by hand, sometimes until the wee early hours … One, Two, Three, Four, Tally … One pulling the ballots and 2 recording … Not saying it was better, but less conflict…

Billionaire in California today. Congratulations to someone … Lottery winner…

Should be less clutter in our mail boxes and on TV … We watch and listen…

Weather for the next day or so … Partly sunny today, with a high near 69 and more wind, gusts in the 23 mph range. Mostly cloudy tonight with a low around 57 and more wind. Thursday, a chance of showers after 1 p.m. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 75 … Windy and a 50% chance of rain…

Bladenboro Bulldog Class of ’56 … class meeting at Dale’s in Whiteville, 1 p.m. Thursday … Hopeful of a good response…

Keep watching and listening for final results of elections … coming soon.

One-liners around for many years…

“Republicans and Democrats are like divorced parents who care more about getting kids to hate the other one than they are their well-being”

“I don’t approve of political jokes. I’ve seen too many of them get elected.”

“What’s the difference between baseball and politics? In baseball you’re out if you’re caught stealing.”
