Are you watching the DC hearings? I do not watch or listen. … Do watch 6:30 p.m. national news daily. … All I need to know.

What would you do if someone broke into your home or business? Can’t imagine.

Jobs are available in the area. … Check with NC Employment Security Commission … office across street from Elizabethtown Primary School.

Thanksgiving just a week away.

Area church choirs busy practicing for Cantatas.

Guess I sound like a broken record … but that’s OK. Filing for various political offices upcoming. For many years, filing was in January, primary in May and General Election in November. Legislature changed filing and primary, thinking that North Carolina may make a difference at the national level (presidential primary). New dates … filing in December and primary moved up to March, General Election remains in November.

So … if you are thinking about offering yourself for a political office, filing begins at noon on December 2 and ends noon on December 20. Questions????, direct them to the Bladen County Board of Elections … call or stop by, located behind the US Post Office in Elizabethtown … 301 Cypress Street.

I had the pleasure of serving as County Commissioner … great experience … 1974 to ’82. Yep, I am an ‘old codger’…

Statewide football playoffs continue this weekend … in Bladen County, it’s time for basketball.

Sunny, later today with a high near 60 and breezy. Low tonight in the mid 30s … Great fall weather for the next 2 or 3 days … Showers likely Saturday and Saturday night.

Famous quotes by Mark Twain
