Thoughts While Shaving for September 5

Labor Day weekend … Is there a Labor Day weekend that stands out in your memory? Best I can remember, spent all working in the tobacco patch, grading tobacco or return to school … maybe not on Labor Day, but no lake or beach time … work, work, work … We labored…

Today, the NFL Tennessee Titans are expected to trim their roster to 53, last report I saw, they had 79 players in camp. Larrell Murchison, former NC State and East Bladen Eagle, is hopeful of making the squad. Saw a recent quote from a team source, speaking about the Elizabethtown, NC native. “He has quietly put together a solid training camp. He’ll provide depth on the defensive line beyond Jeffrey Simmons, Daquan Jones and Jack Crawford.” An announcement from the team is expected after 3 p.m. today … We wish him and his family the best…

Hopefully get a break in the weather … Forecast is for scattered showers and thunderstorms before 5 p.m., with a high near 86 and a northerly breeze 5 to 9 mph, with gusts as high as 16 mph. Forecast includes a 30% chance of rain.

I know I have mentioned it a couple of times, but one more will not hurt … Elizabethtown’s Sidewalk Sale is a ‘must’ for many … in the area and White Lake visitors…

Interesting to watch and hear comments about fall sports at every level … We shall see.

One thing for certain, elections will be held Tuesday, November 3rd…

“Every election is determined by the people who show up.” Larry J. Sabato

“If you don’t vote, you lose the right to complain.” George Carlin

“The ballot is stronger than the bullet.” Abraham Lincoln
