Today's Features

  • Jennifer McLean of Wilmington and Christopher Bloech of Isle of Palms, S.C., were married June 7 in a ceremony overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway.

    The Rev. Eugene Wells, the bride’s uncle, performed the ceremony.

    The bride is the daughter of Ron and Catherine McLean of Supply.

    The groom is the son of Ken and Susan Bloech of Kennesaw, Ga.

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

    Melissa Hegarty served as matron of honor.

    Ringbearer was Christopher McLean, the bride’s nephew.

  • Sarah Amanda Parker of Supply and Josh Eugene Cox of Ash were married June 13 at Wachesaw Plantation in Murrells Inlet, S.C.

    Pastor Joel Fanti officiated the ceremony.

    The bride is the daughter of Ricky Parker and Linda Parker of Supply.

    The groom is the son of Pam and Tom Anello of Ash.

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

    The bride wore a white, mock-two-piece gown with a portrait neckline and a corset bodice made of white taffetta with a tufted skirt embellished with flowers and organza layers.

  • Adam Bradshaw is not a number. Though he was the second of three murder victims this year in Brunswick County, his widow Shannon says he was more than a number, more than a statistic, more than a newspaper headline, more than a victim of a senseless, violent murder.

    Adam was a father who loved his son and a husband who loved her, Shannon recalled on a recent summer afternoon at her Brierwood home.

  • OCEAN ISLE BEACH—As gas prices rise, two local entrepreneurs have been welcoming heavier traffic at their new business.

    Doug Tilley and David Mercer, co-owners of D&D Scooters, say business has been brisk at their new scooter sale and rental business on Beach Drive.

    “We’ve had a lot of traffic in here,” Tilley said last week as the two waited for customers at the lot where several two-wheeler mopeds in bright primary hues of red, blue and yellow stood facing traffic moving along Beach Drive at the corner of Spruce Street near Sands Plaza.

  • Back in the good ol’ days, the only thing you had to do to pay for a tank of gas was reach into your wallet.

    With fuel averaging $4 a gallon and prices increasing in food and just about any other product imaginable, it’s no surprise people are reaching far beyond their wallets to make ends meet.

    Pawnshops around the area have seen an increased flow of traffic in the past few months, people from all walks of life needing to make a few bucks.

  • Putting food on the table is one thing no family should have to worry about, even in the most difficult times.

    That’s one reason Angel Food Ministries has been popular for many families in Brunswick County since the Brunswick Baptist Association signed on as a host site for the nonprofit agency two years ago.

  • The Brunswick County chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) honored five recipients Saturday night for many years of service in Brunswick County.

    Carl Parker, first vice president, said there was no elaborate explanation for why recipients were honored.

    “Because they have done something beyond the call of duty,” he said. “They didn’t sit on the porch, plain and simple.”

  • Members of the Brunswick Search and Rescue Team (BSAR) brought its equine teams and canine representatives to meet the children of the Holden Beach area on June 17. The event was hosted by Sabbath Home Church as a Fun Day for the beginning of Bible school, which was to begin the following day.

  • The state has approved Brunswick Family Assistance to participate in the Summer Food Service Program to provide free nutritious meals during the summer to kids ages 18 and younger beginning June 23.

    According to BFA Executive Director Joe Cannon, BFA applied to the state to participate in the program and also recruited organizations including several churches to serve as local meal sites.

    “We’ve got about 5,000 kids in the school system in Brunswick County who get free and reduced lunch and breakfast,” Cannon said.
