  • Many dessert recipes come from family, friends and the doctor’s office

     

    Family and friends have given many dessert recipes to me over the years, and many recipes I’ve just found while perusing through those “Family Day” or “Good Housekeepng” magazines while waiting around in the doctor’s office.

  • what is this mystery plant?

     By John Nelson

    Flowers, of course, come in quite an assortment of sizes. The smallest flowers of any plant you are likely to see probably belong to the tiny, floating duckweeds.

  • Fishing under pressure with repeat clients
  • Match play – The best kind of golf

     

    We’re all used to watching the PGA Tour on weekends. Almost all PGA events are contested in medal (stroke) play. That means the score accumulates hole-by-hole until four days of play are completed. The lowest score at the end of 72 holes wins.

  • Warm temperatures bring tough fishing

    As we enter the first week of August, most Brunswick County residents are more concerned about staying cool instead of their next fishing trip. This time of year brings unbearably hot temperatures to our region that give most of our predatory fish a bad case of lockjaw. These species, such as king mackerel, Spanish mackerel and mahi mahi, refuse to eat. Every year different bait presentations are tried, yet the fish do not bite as well as they do in the fall and spring. This leaves charter fishermen like myself with the question, “Will they decide to bite today?”

  • BCC officials prepare to open Southport campus

     SOUTHPORT — When Dr. Susanne Adams began her stint as Brunswick Community College president in July 2011, the college’s board of trustees hadn’t decided how it would move forward with its plans for a Southport campus.

    Eventually, trustees approved renovating the old alternative school on Lord Street and transforming it into a continuing education center with more classroom space and art studios.

    Four years later, college staff and trustees are two weeks away from officially opening the Southport campus.
