Eagles win first game of the year … West still winless.

Dublin Peanut Festival today. Festivities begin with parade at 10 a.m. Weather should be perfect … sunny, highs near 83 degrees.

Fall arrives Monday … Summer time temps are expected to ‘hang around’ … ranging from 88 on Monday to low 90s Thursday and Friday.

Don’t know about you, but will be happy when Bladen is not associated with voting irregularities.

New Hanover officials are wrestling with what to do with their hospital. …. Remember years ago as a County Commissioners, Bladen was faced with similar situation. Forecast for hospital was to operate at a loss forcing the county to subsidize. Had offers to purchase, but opposition was loud, despite the fact that some who opposed did not use the facility. Long and short was, did not sell, county later subsidized … and later began to look for someone to operate or purchase. Always emotional and can be expensive.

Enjoy attending local sporting events …. enew old friendships.

It’s the friends we meet along life’s road who helps us appreciate the journey.

Friends are the most important ingredient in the recipe of life.

Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others … Cannot keep it from themselves.
