  • Lent, like life, is a journey into the unknown

    “This is a journey, and each one travels differently.” Thus spoke the ophthalmologist to his impatient patient, a man chomping at the bit to return to “normalcy.”

    The doctor quietly but firmly repeated his message, adding that everyone heals differently. Each lens implant adheres uniquely, conforming to the individual shape of the eye. His lesson was clear. The voyage toward improved vision may be walked together, but each voyager experiences it personally and, in a sense, alone.

  • March Sadness: Dolphins denied in championship game

    WILMINGTON—The pained expression on coach Walter Shaw’s face and the red eyes of his players told the story of the Carolinas Junior College Conference Men’s Basketball Tournament championship game.

    LAS VEGAS—Carl Edwards got to victory lane for the second week in a row. He followed up last week’s win at California by finishing ahead of Dale Earnhardt Jr. in Sunday’s UAW-Dodge 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

    The win was the ninth of his career, and it moved him into the Sprint Cup points lead for the first time in his career.

    “This was a very special win,” Edwards said. “I was just trying to hold off Dale there at the end. This is an amazing couple of weeks.”

  • Vegas is the ultimate 'destination race'

    Some events on NASCAR’s Sprint Cup Series schedule are referred to as “destination races.”

    When fans visit venues such as Martinsville, Darlington or Talladega, the races and the events surrounding them can literally be the only game in town.

    Other areas offer a “Bright Lights, Big City” aspect, with many entertainment options often encouraging fans to transform their race weekend into a weeklong vacation.

    Infineon Raceway, for example, offers the opportunity to visit California’s scenic wine country during the month of June.

  • BCC baseball piling up wins

    SHALLOTTE—The biggest challenge for Brunswick Community College’s baseball team in its inaugural season has little to do with pitching, hitting or fielding. It’s mental preparation.

    “It just came down to our depth and running the ball,” said BCC coach Walter Shaw.

  • BCC cruises past Clinton

    It was Friday, the quarterfinal round of the Carolinas Junior College Conference Men’s Basketball Tournament at Cape Fear Community College’s Schwartz Center and you could sense the urgency engulfing Brunswick Community College coach Walter Shaw.

    And after dispatching Clinton (S.C.) Junior College 86-69 to advance to a semifinal match-up with Spartanburg Methodist College, Shaw’s demeanor didn’t changed.
