  • The Brunswick Community College Foundation has announced its cast for the 2010

    “Dancing with the Brunswick Stars” fundraiser to benefit foundation scholarships.

    Event chairman Clarice Holden and WECT anchor Genevieve Barker announced the new line-up Monday afternoon in the lobby of the Odell Williamson Auditorium at Brunswick Community College.

  • OCEAN ISLE BEACH—Local residents and beach visitors have probably been introduced to Thomas Woodson.

    Until recently, the 90-year-old Ocean Isle Beach resident worked as a cashier at IGA Ocean Aire Market on Causeway Drive.

    Although many people have passed through his checkout line, many don’t know the heroic missions Woodson was a part of more than half a century ago.

  • OCEAN ISLE BEACH—An acre of land set aside for God’s purposes was the first step in fulfilling a calling for busy entrepreneurs Jeff and Maribeth Achterberg.

    The couple, owners of Verity Management Solutions, thought they moved to Brunswick County from their home state of Wisconsin five years ago to get away from the cold weather, but they say a higher calling has presented itself—helping young girls break the cycle of poverty.

  • The Anointed Vessels Ministry, based in Ash, presented its first Easter season show in five years last week, “Glorious Impossible Too,” which told the story of Jesus’ life.

    The musical drama took place at the Can You Believe It Amphitheater in Ash, where the Rev. Diana Payne works every year to stage large-scale outdoor religious dramas for the public.

    The cast included people of all ages and brought the story of Jesus’ birth, ministry, death and resurrection to life and also connected it to the modern world.

  • How many of you have gone to the grocery store or butcher shop and picked up a London broil to bring home to cook? Ever wonder what cut of beef is it? I doubt if you’ll find it on a beef chart that shows the various cuts of beef from a steer.

  • The full moon of March has many faces or expressions people have claimed to see. We always see the same face of the moon; however, we have given it multiple personalities with all the names assigned to it, especially this month’s moon.

    Monday, March 29, marked the day of the full moon and if you were like me when gazing up in admiration, you might not have given thought to all the history that went along with this common astronomical event.

  • We’re working on our first full week of spring and that means lots of garden chores showing up on the honey-do list. If you’re still looking for something to do, go ahead and finish the pruning chores, fertilize your shrub beds if they need it and add a bit of fresh mulch. But, leave the lawn fertilizer in the bag for now and try to resist the urge to plant summer annuals unless you’re prepared to lose them to a late frost.

  • Window boxes enhance your surroundings wherever you live. They create a mini-garden. Use them for flowers, herbs or small vegetables. Just think, you can have a small herb garden right outside your kitchen window. You will be surprised by the impact of a window box at eye level that can be enjoyed from both inside and outside.

  • Mr. and Mrs. Robbie Miller of Shallotte announce the engagement of their daughter, Ashley Dawn Miller, to James Charles Lane, son of Mr. and Mrs. Eddie Lane of Lexington. The couple will be married at 6 p.m. June 5, at Governor Dudley's Mansion in Wilmington. The bride-elect is the granddaughter of Randall and Jean Abernathy of Lynchburg, Va., and Kathryn Arnette of Dillon, S.C., and Ricky Miller of Surfside, S.C. She is a 2004 graduate of West Brunswick High School in Shallotte. She attended Brunswick Community College and is employed of Angelo's Bistro.

  • Sabbath rest—aach! Who could rest on this Sabbath? I know I could not. I did not! So much has happened. There is so much to tell. Where do I begin? How far back do I go to find the starting point? I don’t even know. But, sit...sit down and let me talk. Sometimes things unravel and make sense when I do that.

    It was just a few weeks ago when I first got uneasy feelings that something terrible was going to happen. There were rumblings in the street that the Pharisees and Sadducees had found someone else to bicker about.
