     SHALLOTTE — West Brunswick senior basketball player Gray Cheers has signed a letter of intent to attend Hampden-Sydney College.

    “They were the first school to talk to me,” he said Thursday, April 30. “I think it was my sophomore year.

    “All it was, was a letter. But it was still an honor to just to know that somebody was looking at me that early.

  • Jayla Rogers wins Magnolia...

    I’ve been writing this column for 13 years and each year brings wonderful surprises in the world of Brunswick County golf: new courses, renovations of older tracks; awesome green superintendents and golf pros and even a golf course designer (Tim Cate). We have hundreds of golfers and dozens of golf course communities.

  • Father-son champs are the Isleys

    Because I am a golf writer, I get updates and scores from the Carolinas Golf Association every week. For those new to the area or new to the game of golf, the Carolinas Golf Association was founded in 1909 to promote and to protect the game of golf in the Carolinas by providing competitions, education, support and benefits to golfers.

    Last year the tournament was rained out and, unfortunately, this year I will be away at that time. However, when I read the notice, I was intrigued. It told me about the Wings Ministry Backpack Program, which provides food to needy children in our community.

    Fishing has steadily improved over the Fourth of July weekend in Brunswick County. After the hard southwest winds we endured practically all last week, our coast finally caught a break with a few days of 10- to 15-knot winds. This brought the seas down offshore and finally gave the top water game fish, such as king mackerel, Spanish mackerel and mahi mahi, a chance to eat.

  • Reminders about why sharks attack

    The hot question on my charters lately has been about the shark attacks. Many folks are curious to know what a fisherman thinks about it. Well, the facts are for the most part human beings are being human. Most of the attacks have happened close to either an inlet or a pier, or witnesses have seen baitfish splashing in the water before an attack.
