  • ‘Tis time for The Brunswick Beacon’s seventh annual Holiday Happenings Christmas Show, set for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 11, at Shallotte Middle School at 225 Village Road.

    Featured this year are 67 vendors, including a variety of new ones, said event organizer Christy Williamson, advertising sales representative for The Brunswick Beacon.

  • The big question is … will you weigh the same Jan. 1 as you do right now? Weight gain during the holidays is common and many Americans gain between one and five pounds. While that doesn’t sound like much, too often these extra pounds aren’t lost after the holidays. And this goes on year after year. This holiday season, the only thing that should be “stuffed” is the turkey.

  • The annual Wreaths Across America campaign is coming to a close. Nov. 15 is the last day to place an order. The Wreaths Across America campaign is an effort to place a holiday wreath on every veteran’s grave in every national cemetery worldwide Saturday, Dec. 16, at noon. This is a very public event and all are welcome to attend and help place wreaths on graves after the ceremonies.

  • Brunswick County Toastmasters will have an open house Tuesday, Nov. 7, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Brunswick Electric Membership Corp., 795 Ocean Highway W., Supply.

  • Coastal North Carolina is the ideal place for those of you who are tired of the snow but still like some change from one season to the next. That means you’re just as likely to hear a “youse guys” as a “ya’ll” in these parts. It also means most of what you knew about gardening —especially the types of plants to use and doing things at the right time — don’t apply. 

  • I often write of my ongoing admiration of Richard Rohr, OFM. However, his recent series of meditations on the power of forgiveness has me reeling with awe and kneeling in contemplation of the wonder and strength encased in clemency.

    In the past several years, considerable attention has been devoted here in the South to trees that grow quickly, providing either a fast supply of shade or timber, or both. Here is a plant that is outstanding as a fast shade producer. Now it is indeed a tropical species, and it isn’t native, so if your heart is set on a native species for fast shade, you might have to keep looking.
