  • Ocean Ridge plays Bah Humbug Tourney

    The Ocean Ridge Men’s Golf Association played its sevent annual Bah Humbug Tournament Dec 14 at Panther’s Run. The event was a four-player shamble. The lowest two net scores per hole counted for the team score.  
    Creative tee placements were devised by the resident Grinch, pleasing no one. Additionally, players had to putt with specially designated putters on the ninth (a youth hockey stick) and the 18th hole (a plumber’s nightmare).

  • A Christmas wish for you

    Writing this column every week is both a job and privilege. I have been The Brunswick Beacon golf columnist since Sept. 12, 2002. That’s 483 columns.
    It’s hard to believe, because time flies when you’re having fun and I love being your golf columnist. I’ve assembled an idea file about 2-inches deep in the drawer next to my desk, thanks to you. People email me ideas, they buttonhole me in Walmart and they call me on the phone. I could write columns for the next six months without straining to find a topic.

  • Fishing gets better as weather gets colder

    First of all, Merry Christmas to all the anglers and seafood cooks of Brunswick County. I think I have spoken or otherwise communicated with more of you this year than any other year before and I admire the fact that despite the economic hardships we are all facing it seems as if more of you are out hunting and fishing than ever before. You are also doing a great job of passing the ultimate interactive sports on to our children.

  • Time’s up, Mr. Warren

    Time’s up, commissioner Charles Warren.
    You’ve had ample time to prove you can handle your role on the county’s Department of Social Services board—a role you’ve so desperately clung to you’ve even violated the county’s code of ethics in doing so.
    You so badly wanted to prove you could helm the board as chairman you were even censured by your fellow commissioners. In fact, you couldn’t even be bothered to show up for your own censure hearing.

  • Many people help BFA

    To the editor:
    An amazing collection of individuals gave up their personal time to make Christmas happen for 2,501 children and senior adults in 685 households. Volunteers worked long hours every day for three weeks to set up distribution sites. If you have never experienced the process, it takes a lot of work.
