    I don’t know Craig Scott. I do know a quote attributed to him. “From every wound there is a scar, and every scar tells a story. A story that says, ‘I survived.’” The quote is powerfully real. It describes so many survival experiences, so many scars, so many stories.

    Scheduled 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, May 16 and 17, the award-winning festival traditionally showcases all-day entertainment and an array of food, about 200 arts-and-crafts vendors, business booths and community groups lining the Little River waterfront the weekend after Mother’s Day.

  • Flip-flops are totally acceptable and so is dancing.

    Those are just two of the highlights at the fourth annual Flip Flop Ball to benefit Novant Health Foundation Brunswick Medical Center this coming Friday, May 15.

    The ball launches with cocktails starting at 6:30 p.m. at the Brick Landing Plantation clubhouse, 1882 Goose Creek Road in Ocean Isle Beach, following by a casual, fun evening of dinner and dancing starting at 7 p.m.

    Shirts are required, flip-flops are optional, but a beach attitude is a must, organizers say.
