  • Reasons to be thankful for golf

    There are many things for which I am thankful. Let me just touch on the highlights of what’s good in my life.   

    I’m grateful for my husband, Gene, whom I met on a blind date my freshman year at Syracuse University. For years he has put up with me, proofread even my most boring articles and unsold novels, suggested dinner out when he knew I was tired and given me hugs at the exact time I needed them.   

  • Calhoun, Holsather win...

  • Most dependable action comes...

    The fishing season is running late this year. We are seeing continued catches of sea mullet, pompano and flounder in the surf. Redfish make up the bulk of the inshore action and speckled trout are just starting up.

    The piers have had a disappointing spot season but continue to see flounder in the shallows and black drum are active around structures at the bridges and docks in the dark.

  • South advances to second round...

     BOILING SPRING LAKES—The South Brunswick Cougars were running on all cylinders Friday night as they cruised by the Washington Pam Pack (Pamlico Packing Co.) 39-7 in the first round of the N.C. High School Athletic Association Class 3A state playoffs.

    “Respect all, fear none” is the Cougars’ motto in the playoffs, as the defense feared no one, holding the opposition to 7 points, its second best total of the year. (It held Topsail to 7 points Sept. 3.) The offensive line was crushing its opponents.
