Today's Features

  • Mole problems seem to be on the rise. Tunnels and more tunnels everywhere you turn, what can be done? How can we control these critters? First, we must be sure it is indeed a mole and not a vole.

    Moles have a hairless, pointed snout that extends out one-half inch in front of the mouth, tiny eyes and no external ears. Their large paddle-like forefeet and sharp claws enable the mole to swim through the soil. 

  • Boneless, skinless chicken breasts are the ultimate fast food for family and guests-quick to prepare and low in fat. But if you’re like me, they can be boring.

    Before I share a few of my favorites, why not review the best way to sauté chicken breasts for tender, juicy, anything-but-boring results? You’ll need four boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 5 oz. each) for each dish of four servings.

  • Heart seminar is set for Feb. 17

    High blood pressure and cholesterol affect millions of Americans, and these issues can lead to serious heart health problems. Community members are encouraged to attend a free seminar presented by Brunswick Community Hospital on Thursday, Feb. 17. 

    James R. Harper, Jr., M.D., FACC, of Brunswick Heart Associates will discuss all aspects of heart health including ways to lower blood pressure, improve cholesterol and prevent future heart disease. 

  • A day of fellowship and spiritual renewal is just a few weeks away.

    For the third year in a row, Seaside United Methodist Church is hosting Women’s Day by the Sea. The event is traditionally on the last Saturday of February.

    The idea to host a women’s event arose after several church members attended woman’s day events in Myrtle Beach.

  • Poetry Revisited is a newly organized monthly group for those who write, read and listen to poetry. The intention of this group is to afford poets and would-be poets an opportunity to read their work to others, as well as to enable those with a less-than-positive impression of poetry to experience the reading and hearing of poems from a different angle. 

    An introductory gathering is planned at Rourk Branch Library in Shallotte from 3-4:15 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 13, in the library meeting room.
