    LELAND—North Brunswick was supposed to win this basketball game against West Brunswick.

    But in regulation—not in double overtime.

    North was supposed to win this game by double digits—as it did in December when it crushed West 80-49—not by three points, 75-72, as it did Tuesday night in a first-round game of the Waccamaw Conference boys’ basketball tournament.

  • Gill net fishing not yet at an...

    Gill net fishing in North Carolina may be coming to an end because of federal and environmental concerns about sea turtles, but commercial fishermen are not going down without a fight.

    In an effort to reach a compromise that will save North Carolina’s gill net fishing industry, the Marine Fisheries Commission (MFC) voted last Friday to continue to allow large mesh gill net fishing, restricting it to four days a week.

    The MFC had been considering eliminating large mesh nets from May 15 to Dec. 15 to prevent interactions with sea turtles.

    Last Saturday, I attended the Play Golf America Day at Grande Dunes Resort in Myrtle Beach, S.C. This is an initiative of the PGA of America to increase participation in the game of golf, and it’s all free.

    Hundreds of people of all ages showed up for free lessons from PGA pros. They hit full shots on the driving range, they chipped and putted and hit bunker shots, all under the watchful eye of dozens of pros, staked out all over the immense practice facility at Grand Dunes.
