  • CIS Gala will benefit children

    On average, a high school dropout costs $127,000 in community support services over their lifetime. This means the 137 students who dropped out of Brunswick County schools in 2010 will cost taxpayers $17,399,000.
    “Keeping kids in schools benefits everyone and, therefore, is everyone’s responsibility,” said Joan Madsen, chair of the Community in Schools’ Board of Directors. “Our Dropout Prevention Program is critical to the success of our students, their families and Brunswick County.”

  • Fall programs set at the museum

    Sept. 15 was a beautiful day for a marsh walk. Ten people joined Museum of Coastal Carolina educator Ed Ovsenik for a guided walk along an Ocean Isle Beach marsh.

  • Masons collect blood for Red Cross

    The Aug. 28 blood drive hosted by Shallotte Masonic Lodge 727 resulted in 25 units of blood collected. Among those donating were several individuals donating blood for the first time.
    The blood received at the drive was immediately typed and underwent a battery of tests in Red Cross laboratories. The blood then became available to help patients in area hospitals. Because a unit of blood can be separated into its various components, one donation can impact as many as three lives.
