  • In difficult economic times, residents of Brunswick County, like nearly everywhere else, need temporary help putting food on the table and paying their bills.

    That’s where Brunswick Family Assistance (BFA) usually comes in—providing emergency funds for rent and utilities assistance from its budget and food from the onsite food pantry.

  • Ask Amber Rubio how long she lived at her last address and she is quick to answer, “31 years.”

    For her entire life, Rubio has lived at one address, the home of her grandmother who raised her.

    But for what seemed like forever, she dreamed of a home of her own, a house for herself and her children.

    Rubio had been everywhere, talked to everyone and tried everything, from banks to credit unions, but she could not qualify for a mortgage loan. Then she turned to Habitat for Humanity for assistance, hoping for help in getting a dream home.

  • Recognizing the need to bring more arts-related programs and artistic culture to Brunswick County, the Brunswick Arts Council (BAC) has created the Multicultural Programs Division.

  • GRISSETTOWN—Timothy DeMatties of Seaside has found his professional niche doing something he never thought he would—building and repairing street-legal golf carts as a mechanic at the Golf Cart Outlet.

    The opportunity to train for his new career was the result of a six-month span of unemployment.

  • Landing on an aircraft carrier is like hitting a speed bump—a large speed bump! Nothing can prepare you for the experience and there are no words to describe it.

    A group of us were recently honored to fly out to the aircraft carrier Eisenhower, to stay overnight and observe flight operations. Although we knew about the trip a few months earlier, the Navy couldn’t give us details. I got the word a week before we departed our orders were being cut, we’d be flying to the Ike but they wouldn’t say where we were going.

    As the cast cast its magic in “Seussical: The Musical!”

  • Whether you have a faithful sidekick or not, it’s time for the “Lawn Ranger” to get busy.

    During these hot times when grass is really growing, it’s important to saddle up that lawn mower often and keep the blades sharp. This month is also the right time to fertilize Bermuda, zoysia, and St. Augustine if you’re following N.C. State University’s recommendations—and who wouldn’t be?
