COLUMN: The Beast of Bladenboro

Bladen County is one of the oldest counties in North Carolina. It lies about 70 miles northwest of Wilmington and just southeast of Lumberton. The mighty Cape Fear River slowly makes its way through the counties on its way to the coast. The county is mostly rural and only a few towns dot the landscape. Farming is big in Bladen with its rich land and abundance of water. A lot of the county is made up of large forest and swampland: a perfect environment for bears, deer, bobcats and just about any other type of beast.

COLUMN: Ghostly music at Grassy Island Part I

Until the early 1900s, the Pee Dee River ran free and clear from the North Carolina mountains to the South Carolina coast with no man-made structures to hinder its flow.

COLUMN: What happened to the bear?

Back in the '50s, when I was just a lad, my family lived on Highway 74 west of Rockingham. Back then 74 was just a winding two-lane road with a lot of hills to go over before you reached the Pee Dee River. The river was just a few miles down the road from where I lived. On each side of the river bridge there were two stores, one in Richmond County and the other in Anson County. Both stores sold all types of merchandise and goods. Also, each store sold all types of fish that were caught in the nearby river; such as shad, mullet and catfish.
