  • Walk your way to better scores

     I love this time of year. We can discard the old ways, make new resolutions, begin all over again and do what we really want to do. We can create a healthier lifestyle.

    So, let’s begin by walking. Walk the dog, walk the neighborhood, walk the mall. Best of all, walk the golf course.

    Walking regularly is a terrific way to become healthier and happier in the New Year. The American Heart Association tells us that walking:

    It seems every year the fish come up with new excuses not to bite, yet every year fishermen will find ways to get them to bite. Fishermen usually will begin to spend countless hours trying to research what a particular fish bites, why it bites that bait and, most importantly, where it bites that bait. However, I have found that hard work, persistence and unrelenting dedication will prevail more times than knowing the particulars. In fact these characteristics carried a team from our area to the ultimate victory Dec. 22.

  • OIFC encounters the Gulf Coast

      With Christmas quickly approaching, most folks either have their head wrapped around family gatherings or wrapping presents for the family gatherings. This eventually leads folks to forgetting about the outdoors and how much fun you can have. Whether it’s fishing for trout in the skinny backwaters or calling in a drake mallard from your duck blind, the week of Christmas is the perfect time to teach and perform these activities with your family members.

  • Baby, it’s cold outside

     Many of us who live in Brunswick County are from the north. We’re from New Jersey, New York, Wisconsin, Ohio, New England, even Minnesota.

    Years ago, Gene and I came down on a family vacation and we fell in love with the beaches, the golf, the fishing, restaurants —  and the weather.

    Historically, the average temperature in this area in January is a high of 55 and a low of 34. Chicago, on the other hand, has an average daily temperature of 31 (January) and New York has an average daily temperature of 39 for the same month.

  • Victory over Cougars puts West...

    BOILING SPRING LAKES — Cellphone marketers would have a hard time selling unlimited minutes to West Brunswick’s boys’ basketball players.

    All they need to get is five-second calls.

    The Trojans used a smothering defense to chalk up three five-second calls during their 57-42 win over county rival South Brunswick on Thursday, Dec. 18.

    The win keeps West unbeaten through the first 10 games of the season.
