     SHALLOTTE — Two stunning runs by Anthony McCray — 40 yards and 98 yards — helped lead West Brunswick to a 34-7 victory against Whiteville in a non-conference football game Sept. 9 at West.

    The custom we follow when a great golfer dies is to cite statistics. And so it is with Arnold Palmer. Four Masters, one U.S. Open and two Open championships in seven years from 1958 through 1964. A memorable run, the likes of which few have achieved.

  • Cooler weather brings better...

    It’s a seasonal transition period for our area and every element associated with fishing is letting us know. The cool morning breeze is just enough to make you think it’s fall, yet by 1 p.m., it’s 90 degrees. Nonetheless, the fish are beginning to cooperate as fall fishing is on our doorstep.

    A new management team has taken the reins at Brick Landing, and it is truly a “team.”

    Trey and Jennifer Ernstes are now in charge of operations. They are a married couple with a beautiful 2-year-old daughter (Jordyn). Jennifer is the general manager and Trey is the director of golf operations.

    “Basically, I report to my wife, but I think we can handle it,” joked Trey Ernstes as I chatted with the two of them last week. “This is a great opportunity and we’re going to make it work.”

    Lockwood Folly is an exciting place these days. It is the only member-owned course in Brunswick County. The normal high level of activity has been enhanced by new greens that were installed this past summer, and by the ongoing construction of a new 16,000 square-foot clubhouse.

    This year marks the 20th year of hugely successful charity events, many of them focused on breast cancer. Other charities that have received the largess of Lockwood are Awareness of Autism, Hospice Closer to Home and Ovarian Cancer Research.

    Every fisherman has his idea of what a perfect day on the water would be like. Whether it be catching mahi mahi and wahoo in the Gulf Stream on a warm spring day or catching king mackerel along the beach on a cool, crisp October morning, we all have our dream trip. And unfortunately, no matter how hard we have tried this year, the days where these dream trips have been fulfilled were few and far between.
