  • Help clear the air in Brunswick County

    I had family vacationing on one of the islands recently.

    They missed the hurricane, the fireworks and the “Tammy” premiere but they didn’t miss all the Brunswick County happenings.

    Maybe they were keeping a lookout because they had Brunswick County on their mind in eager anticipation for their week off at the beach.

    But the county has also made it into the news for other reasons recently.

    One of the first questions I got after they arrived was, what was going on with that Brunswick County sheriff?

  • Need for news remains constant through days, decades
  • Look at all these rumors ...

    Here I am again, writing my weekly column almost at the last minute, wondering what insight I can share that would be of interest to readers.

  • Proper recognition due for Ruth Mincey

    By Sue Edwards

    Guest Columnist

    Ruth Mincey celebrated her 90th birthday this past January. In 1986, she and her husband were two of the original founders of Bonaparte Baptist Church. She serves as treasurer and secretary of the church, tirelessly performing duties that so often go unrecognized and many times are simply thought of as being just something else “Ruth will handle.” This is an attempt to properly give her recognition.

  • Hurricane Arthur gives way to happy holiday

    I’m relieved this year’s Fourth of July holiday and weekend was without tragedy after last year’s terrible rip current drownings, and especially in the aftermath of Hurricane Arthur, which mostly just soaked us here Brunswick County and put a damper on some pre-holiday plans.

  • Summer heat nothing to swoon at, but sometimes it happens

    Look at me, celebrating the Fourth of July and sunshine in Sunset Beach in red, white and blue just one day after our first (and we hope last) 2014 summer storm, aka Hurricane Arthur, blew up the Carolinas coast.

    Look at me, with my new smartphone pedometer app sauntering up Sunset Beach for a three-mile walk on one of the prettiest beaches God, with a little help from the Gores, ever invented.
