Robert Hester, Founder of BladenOnline.comGreetings, feels a little like fall of the year outside … Will check weather shortly…

Hope you will check some of the articles today in BladenOnline … John Clark updates local sports, your best bet to keep up with what is happening in Bladen County. And Sonny Jones does a great job on Major League Baseball … Much going on around the county and BladenOnline has it covered … Jair McElveen helps us look back to the early to mid 80s, when a young lady from Clarkton played on a college team that captured a National Championship … John has updated local sports activities in Bladen for many years … including high school football today, and we have an update on cross country activities … plus much more…

And finally, a break in the weather … Today’s forecast is for sunny skies, with a high near 75 and windy, gusts in the 18 mph range … Clear skies tonight with a low near 49. Saturday, sunny with a high near 80 … About as good as it gets … and more of the same over the next 4 or 5 days … Hopefully some relief from 90 degree days.

I remember listening to the radio, to Yankee games in the early to mid 50s. The Yankees were the best … often played against the Brooklyn Dodgers in the World Series … Micky Mantle, Whitey Ford, Phil Rizzuto, Elston Howard, some of the best, but the Dodgers were loaded too.

About 10 or 12 of us teenagers would choose up and play in the cow pasture on Sunday afternoon … Just about everyone thinking they could play for the Dodgers or the Yankees one day … That was all before there was an Atlanta Braves team … Guess you could say were the Bladenboro dreamers.

For a small, rural county in southeastern North Carolina, we have numerous places to visit and have a good time on the weekend…
