For the past couple of weeks the East Bladen High School JROTC Cadets have been volunteering at a local Christmas tree sale in Elizabethtown to get into the Christmas spirit and support the local Optimist Club.  The Cadets worked diligently helping move, sell, and load the Christmas trees into customers’ cars.

Mike Walden's You Decide:  What will 2015's economy look like?

Dr. Mike Walden
North Carolina Cooperative Extension


Economists receive much attention at the beginning of a new year. Understandably, people want some insight into how the economy will perform. Of course, no economist can predict every individual’s economic outlook. Instead, what we do is try to forecast the general trends in the economy so that households and businesses can make more informed decisions about their personal situations.
Let me be honest, however: Economists don’t have stellar track records in predicting major economic factors.

Tis the season to do good things for others and to Pay It Forward en masse. That is just what happened at McDuffie Pest Control this holiday season. When Dana McDuffie was approached by her employees, who wanted to 'get her something nice for Christmas' this year, she had an awesome idea.  She asked the employees to donate the money they would have spent on a gift to help the needy families in our own community, and she matched the funds raised dollar for dollar.  Basically she was saying, why not give it to someone you don't know and may never meet?

What is Revaluation?
Bladen County property owners will soon be receiving revaluation notices.  It happens every 8 years and some ask why?
The short answer is, it's the law.
The primary purpose of a revaluation is to provide equalization among all classes of property.
Revaluations are not conducted to increase revenues for local governments.  The revaluation is concerned only with real property.  State law requires that revaluations be conducted at least once every eight years.  Bladen County's last revaluation was effective 2007.

Panel of Judges named to decide Sledge's fate
Three Superior Court Judges have been appointed by the Chief Justice of the North Carolina Supreme Court to decide the fate of Joseph Sledge, a 70 year old convicted murderer who has spent over half his life in prison.
Sledge was convicted and sentenced to life in prison for the stabbing death of Josephine Davis and her daughter Aileen Davis of Elizabethtown.  The crime occurred a couple of miles or less from the White Lake Department of Corrections where Sledge escaped in 1978.
A recent hearing in Raleigh by the North Carolina Innocence Inquiry Commission raised questions about lack of evidence to determine his guilt or innocence.

Once upon a time
By Jefferson Weaver
Staff Writer

Once upon a time, a little boy saw Santa Claus from his brother’s bedroom.

It was an old, old house, built by a wealthy family many years before even the boy’s parents were born. Where it had once been a lavish home on one of the town’s best streets, it was now just another old house.
His brother had a room in what had been a sleeping porch on the second floor. The room had been enclosed when the old house was converted into apartments during World War II, with a staircase outside leading to the alley.

Working Together for a Great Cause
Southeastern Cruisers Club meet at the Bladenboro Police Department to assist in distributing bikes the club has purchased for children in Bladen County. The club partners with the police department and Butters Baptist Church to help bring smiles to folks in need during the Christmas season.  
The church donates care packages full of toiletries, the police department takes the children shopping for their wants and needs, and then the club donates a bike to each child. Working together helps create more smiles than just one organization working alone. 


Students at Elizabethtown Christian Academy have recently participated in a variety of community service projects.  Mrs. Sheila Council’s 4th grade class collected for and packed 22 shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child.   Mrs. Vicki McLaughlin’s 5th grade class collected, packed, and delivered canned goods to the Bladen Crisis Center. Mrs. Christi Waters’ 6th and 7th graders collected money for Samaritan’s Purse Emergency Food Kits. 
 All grades participated in giving to ECA’s “Heart of Christmas Toy Ministry.” Students also visited local nursing homes and sang. Community service, done by the students, is an important part of Elizabethtown Christian Academy's Mission.

In 2011, firefighters began the "REMEMBRANCE RESCUE PROJECT"; with the purchase of the vehicles known as Rescue 3, Rescue 4 and Rescue 5 when they were decommissioned. The Project is a registered 501c3 not-for-profit organization and funds generated are used to restore, preserve and operate the Rescues in order to facilitate education sessions, memorials and remembrance events focused on preserving history in the mind of society, especially for children who are too young to actually understand the events of September 11th and what that day means to members of the fire service and the country as a whole.

Among the wildlife management-related proposed changes are temporary rules regulating the holding of deer in captivity. The proposals meet the General Assembly's directive and follow the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Chronic Wasting Disease Program standards when regulating deer, 

Tax Values coming soon
The Bladen County Tax office will mail new property values the later part of January, 2015, according to Chris Ellis, Tax Administrator..
Ellis said he wanted to allow "enough time to review values, test data and verify sales," so he delayed mailing them slightly.  New values take effect January 1st and Bladen County commissioners will use the values to set the tax rate for the next fiscal year that begins July 1, 2015.


North Carolina law requires counties to do a re-evaluation at least every 8 years, some have shortened that time, but many still operate on an 8 year cycle.

HCA Lower School Christmas Program
As the HCA students pictured  above sang, excitement filled the air while a packed house of parents, family, and friends in Newkirk Auditorium enjoyed another wonderful lower school Christmas musical on Sunday, December 7.  As tradition holds, the fifth graders led the musical drama called “Joyland,” as the kindergarten through fourth grade students joined in singing beautiful Christmas songs! The Christmas play is an annual Harrells Christian Academy event that many look forward to and count on to put them in the right spirit of Christmas each year.

Pets as Presents – A Long-term Commitment
While that cute puppy or kitty is a tempting Christmas present, remember that having a pet is a long term commitment.  Nationally, most pets will lose their home before they turn one year and only one dog in five will remain in one home for life.  It is a poor example for children to see a pet as a disposable item that is joyfully gotten at Christmas then “gotten rid of” a few months later when it becomes inconvenient. 
Don’t be that poor example!   Think ahead and make sure the animal will continue to fit your lifestyle.  Consider how big and active the pet will get.

Tips for Mailing Gifts
It`s that time of year, when we`re thinking about what to send someone we won`t be seeing over the holidays. Gifts of food are popular choices, partially because one size fits all. However, even the convenience of "one size fits all" is a bad investment if the gift is spoiled on arrival or spoils before it can be properly cared for or consumed. While food shipped by mail-order companies enjoy an excellent safety record, hazards can and do exist.

Churches in Bladen County - Click HERE To VIew Church Listings
How many churches are there in Bladen County? How many adherents (supporters or followers)? and what denominations are represented in the county?
