Today's Features

  • Keri Leigh Roberts and Bradley Paul Iden, both of Sunset Beach, were married Saturday, May 10, at the Wedding Chapel by the Sea, with Dr. T.E. Grainger officiating.

    The bride is the daughter of William and Carolyn Roberts of Ocean Isle Beach.

    The groom is the son of Paul and Joann Iden of Warfordsburg, Pa.

    The bride was given in marriage by her parents and escorted by her father.

    Maid of honor was Jessica Roberts of Ocean Isle Beach, the bride’s sister.

  • When starting to prepare for Brunswick Community College Foundation’s Dancing With the Stars competition, district attorney Rex Gore set four goals for himself—to have fun, be entertaining, lose weight and not drop dead of a heart attack while in rehearsal.

    This week, he added one more goal to the list.

    “Our goal is to let the other teams know we’re coming,” he said.

    Gore was asked to participate several months ago and didn’t hesitate to say yes.

  • Kim Durham of Ocean Isle Beach was 38 when she found a lump in her breast during self-examination.

    The lump didn’t show up on a mammogram, and after doctors performed a biopsy, she was told it was benign.

    She was given two choices—she could have it removed or she could wait and see if anything changed.

    “The only way you’re going to save your own life is to advocate,” Durham said. “And we’re all living much longer because of early detection.”

  • More than 2,000 people came out to support the Fifth Annual Coastal Carolina Sea Turtle Day July 9 on Ocean Isle Beach.

    The Turtle Day celebrations at Ocean Isle Beach Community Center kicked off with turtle-oriented arts and crafts and games. Volunteers sold hot dogs, chips and cookies, and all the proceeds went to The Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center of Topsail Beach.

  • NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, S.C.—Hungry for a little food and folly?

    Dive into dinner, then delve into a murder mystery.

    It’s an extra course of the meal thrown in every week at the House of Blues’ Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre.

    Described as an interactive “whodunit” dinner show, the fun begins while feasting mystery-solvers are enjoying their dinner—a murder that soon makes everyone a suspect.

  • The Benedict Foundation of Southport will sponsor a Christmas in July Holiday Tablescape Workshop from 2-4 p.m. Thursday, July 24, at the Foundation’s conference center at 1013 E. Moore St., Southport.

    This is a special free workshop for hostesses, sponsors, and other interested participants in the Foundation’s “Setting a Christmas Table” holiday tablescape show scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 29.

  • Warm season grasses are now going “full steam ahead” and you should care for them likewise. Seed, sprig, plug or sod right away for best results because later plantings may not have enough time to establish properly before cold weather returns in the fall season.

    Don’t forget to fertilize, water and mow according to the various plant needs.

  • Glyphosate is one of the great weed control success stories of the last 50 years. More commonly known as Roundup, this material revolutionized the way we approach weed control in the landscape and garden as well as in agriculture. And, it’s safe for critters, humans and the environment because it attacks a protein synthesis chain that animals don’t have and breaks down quickly once it reaches the soil.

  • Azalea Lace Bug

    These true bugs have lace-like wings and backs. They are found on the undersides of leaves, but cause a blotched or spotted appearance on the upper leaf surface. Black varnish excrement spots appear on the underside of leaves and are characteristic even when adults are absent.

    Severely infested leaves may yellow and drop prematurely.
