    The victory in mild weather Friday night, Nov. 15, at M.H Rourk Stadium before a sparse crowd by playoff standards advanced the No. 5 seed Trojans (4-7) to a second-round game Friday, Nov. 22, at No. 4 seed Wilson Hunt (9-3).

  • Hooray for our men’s golf...

    Since it was started in 2004, the Brunswick Beacon Tournament of Champions has grown steadily. This year we have 18 clubs participating. The tournament is by invitation only to the men’s and ladies’ champions at golf courses in Brunswick County that have memberships.
    Several of our men are repeats from previous years but we also have a few new champions. It’s been an exciting year for the golfers of Brunswick County. Today we salute all the guys who won club championships in 2013.

  • Cold weather brings speck-...

    High pressure building around the Great Lakes region is sending us another shot of cold air. Many of us complain about the cold air and I will admit it takes some getting used to. A blast of cold air has some serious benefits, too. Fishermen and hunters alike know this will send lots of ducks our way, deer will walk more often and the fish will tighten up in larger schools. Where will all the cold air send the fish?

  • Laboy thankful for memorable...

     Pete Laboy got his chance to say thanks, nearly 40 years later than he intended, like a postcard lost in the mail.

    Laboy was always grateful for how Danbury (Conn.) High School provided him the opportunity to play football, which led to a scholarship to Boston College, which in turn led to a successful career in finance.
