  • New attractions for fishing...

     February is a tough month to get past. It is typically a month where it wants to be sunny and 70 for a few days then plummet to below freezing for the rest of the week. Brunswick County got an opportunity to experience the indecisive weather this weekend with temperatures being in the high 60s Saturday, Feb. 7, and Sunday, Feb. 8. Whether it was catching brim from private pond or a slot redfish from a backwater creek, everyone seemed to find a way to wet a line.

  • Lady Dolphins continue second-...

     BOLIVIA — The Brunswick Community College women’s basketball team continued its second-half resurgence by beating Spartanburg Methodist College 65-50 Sunday, Feb. 22, in a non-region basketball game at BCC.

  • Major injustice to the fishing...
  • Coastal Carolina University...

    The winter weather has yet to vacate our area. Last Sunday, Feb. 8, we experienced a brief showing of spring weather with temperatures in the high 60s. Most anglers took this as an opportunity to wet a line and that spring was right around the corner.

    Boy, were we wrong.

    Thick jackets quickly replaced T-shirts and shorts when winter storm Octavia showed up. It seems as if the wind and the cold will never end.

  • Golf fitness by Teri Daly: It’s...

    Each year, I make a bunch of New Year’s resolutions and by March I’ve forgotten them all. Losing weight, getting fit, lowering my golf handicap, creating delicious gourmet meals for Gene, reading more books, writing more books … the list goes on and on and as the days go by I slowly lose my resolve.

    This year is different and I’m delighted. I vowed to get fitter and to get my golf scores down — and so far, it’s working.  

  • Brierwood schedules grand...

     Last week I drove to Brierwood Golf Club and met with Chris Sprow, director of sales, marketing and real estate. Blum Investments purchased the venerable old course in July 2014.

    The clubhouse has been under renovation for more than six months and the result is fabulous. New tables and chairs, large-screen televisions and new big windows overlooking the lake.
