News flash. On 12-1-2014, gas as high as $2.80 per gallon in Elizabethtown. Meanwhile seven or eight miles down the road in Dublin and Bladenboro it was going for $2.65 and $2.69 respectively.

My 15 to 11 cents worth.

What a blessing to live in Mother Bladen on November 30, 2014. Christmas parade over in Elizabethtown and low gas prices over in the western part of the county of Mother Bladen While in the middle of Mother Bladen, young people stood before the congregation of Oak Grove Original Free Will Baptist church and led in singing of praises to God and led in children's church. Thank God for past leaders of our county churches, present leaders, and future leaders. Thank God for a wonderful day.

More than two cents worth.

Thanks BOL for posting the picture of the Bradford pear tree in all of its beautiful colorful splendor.

Congratulations to Jim McVicker and all his duties that will be officially sworn in to their positions Monday morning (am told about 10:15 am.) All of our prayers and efforts over the next four years should be for lawful actions by all our citizens and all those who will visit or pass through Mother Bladen. Plus for the safety of all our law enforcement personnel.

If you have plenty of leaves in your yard, why not spell out HAPPY THANKSGIVING with leaves or now MERRY CHRISTMAS. Takes a little maneuvering of the yard rake but it sure makes a beautiful fall display.

All worth much more than two cents; but that is my two cents worth

I do not know if this is TRUE but it sound better.... Black Friday is the day following Thanksgiving Day in the United States (the fourth Thursday of November), often regarded as the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. In recent years, most major retailers have opened very early and offered promotional sales to kick off the holiday shopping season, similar to Boxing Day sales in many Commonwealth nations. Black Friday is not a holiday, but California and some other states observe "The Day After Thanksgiving" as a holiday for state government employees, sometimes in lieu of another federal holiday such as Columbus Day. Many non-retail employees and schools have both Thanksgiving and the day after off, followed by a weekend, thereby increasing the number of potential shoppers. It has routinely been the busiest shopping day of the year since 2005,[2] although news reports, which at that time were inaccurate, have described it as the busiest shopping day of the year for a much longer period of time.

In 2013, approximately 141 million U.S. consumers shopped during Black Friday, spending a total of $57.4 billion, with online sales reaching $1.2 billion.

The day's name originated in Philadelphia, where it originally was used to describe the heavy and disruptive pedestrian and vehicle traffic which would occur on the day after Thanksgiving. Use of the term started before 1961 and began to see broader use outside Philadelphia around 1975. Later an alternative explanation was made: that retailers traditionally operated at a financial loss ("in the red";) from January through November, and "Black Friday" indicates the point at which retailers begin to turn a profit, or "in the black".

Subject:BLACK FRIDAY
I am a fan of Bladen Online and visit the page daily. However, I find myself disappointed in "BOL" when i read about "is it true?" in referencing to the origination of BLACK FRIDAY. This can be found on Snopes. The reason I say that I am disappointed is simply because of what is going on in America with the race wars. I am not writing this to cause problems or call anyone out. I have respect for the individuals that are behind BOL. BOL is our local news outlet not a large national news media. Just my thoughts, HAPPY THANKSGIVING. :!thinking:

How often do each of us give any thought to where we were on Thanksgiving Days in the past? Vietnam for me. It is no fun being away from home on Thanksgiving Day and no way to get home even if one could. Thank God though, we can change it around this day be a people GIVNG THANKS. Happy Thanksgiving 2014.

How much is it worth to be home today? For sure, more than two cents.

Personally, Bill, it is disgusting to me to even see the names of the two Presidents mentioned in the same sentence.

On the other hand aren't the leaves of the bradford pear trees getting to be beautiful? Not too many things are beautiful twice, but the Bradford pear tree is beautiful this time of the year and in the spring when they are full of beautiful white blossoms.

Tomorrow night each of us will get an opportunity to attend mid week prayer meetings at the house of God. The only opportunity we will ever get to attend the last Wednesday night prayer meeting before Thanksgiving in 2014. If your local church has discontinued this service, you always have a warm welcome at Oak Grove Original Free Will Baptist church.

And that's my much more than two cents worth for today.

The road closure information is very helpful. I can't wait until all the cross line pipes are installed on Lisbon road.

Who knew making a dumb joke about misplaced punctuation could turn into illegal immigration debate? :!thinking:
