  • The First Tee: A credit to...

     I’m so proud I could burst. 

    In five short years, The First Tee of Brunswick County has become one of the premier chapters in the country. Imagine that. 

    Out of 204 chapters scattered across the United States and abroad, we are ranked near the top. We have great kids, wonderful volunteers, a real commitment from our business community, and two founders (Rusty and Carol Petrea) who are indefatigable in their support and leadership. 

  • West Brunswick to have softball...

  • Area anglers do well in 27th...

    Ken Parrish, of Ocean Isle Beach, finished first in the 27th annual Sudan Daredevils Flounder Tournament. He caught a flounder that weighed 9.88 pounds. He fished with Joey Belviso, of Pembroke Pines, Fla. First place was worth $1,500.

    The Sudan Daredevils of the South Brunswick Islands Shrine Club put on the tournament, which took place Friday and Saturday. Awards were handed out Saturday night at the Shallotte Point Volunteer Fire Department.

  • Dixie Chicken tournament raises...

    Area anglers were among the winners in the 11th Annual Dixie Chicken Funament, a multiple-species fishing tournament created in memory of Jim Caudle to raise funds for his namesake Artificial Reef Foundation.

    The tourney took place Memorial Day weekend at the Harbourgate Marina in North Myrtle Beach, S.C.

  • Hot weather brings change in...

     The hot days and climbing water temperatures have caused us to move into a summertime fishing pattern a bit quicker than I expected. That means active fish in the early morning and often at night with midday usually being a period of relatively little activity. 

    Fish will also be almost totally inactive when the tide is at low or full, biting again when the water starts moving rapidly.

  • Jolly Mon King Classic this...

     The time is once again here to welcome the annual Jolly Mon King Classic King Mackerel tournament to the area. The Jolly Mon will be hosted this weekend, June 18-20, from the Ocean Isle Fishing Center at Ocean Isle Beach. 

    As has become tradition, the Jolly Mon offers fishermen from all over the southeast an opportunity to win cash and prizes, including the first-place prize typically more than $25,000. 

  • Former West star Eric Johnson...

    As West Brunswick High School senior pitcher Jay Gause seeks, and gets, advice about whether to sign with the Cleveland Indians or attend N.C. State University, one person has already expressed his thoughts.

    “I talked to his father a little while back and I talked to Jay,” said Eric Johnson, a West Brunswick and Western Carolina University football and baseball player drafted by the Indians in the third round of the June 1999 draft.

  • West beats Topsail, can’t beat...

    Lightning and rain caused the Junior American Legion Baseball game June 10 between West Brunswick and Ashley to be suspended with the score tied 8-8 in the sixth inning. 

    Bruce Clewis and Dustin Darguzas had hit two-run home runs in the fourth inning in giving West an 8-4 lead. But Ashley scored four runs with two outs in the fifth to tie the score.

    The game will be resumed June 21 when West plays at Ashley.

    West scored twice in the first on an error and then on a single by Clewis. Ashley scored in the second on a wild pitch.
