  • Golf: A mountain treat in...

    My husband, Gene, and I went to Gatlinburg, Tenn., last week and we loved it.
    We had heard it was a lot like Myrtle Beach, and that was a fine reason to go. I love our crazy, funky, touristy area with its Canadian and Minnesota tourists, its bike rallies, golf courses, shows and big buffets. They say Myrtle Beach is the blue collar capital of the world, and that’s fine with me. Heck, I’m the daughter of a Maryland chicken farmer, so I’m comfortable with blue collar.

    I had a great time last week just slaying the Spanish mackerel from the planks of the Ocean Isle Beach Pier. I also caught many whiting (sea mullet) and had some good flounder fishing with a friend inshore at the Sunset Beach Bridge.

  • The future of fishing

    Dave Cooper stands with his hands on the wooden planks of the Ocean Crest Pier and looks out over the sea, and then out at the anglers casting their lines from his little fishing paradise on Oak Island. As the owner and operator of the pier Cooper loves to see folks young and old enjoying the beach and catching fish.

  • VIDEO INCLUDED Davis to begin...

     Eric Davis is ready for basketball.

    “The very first week we are out of school,” the new West Brunswick High School basketball coach said May 14 during a visit to the campus, “we’re going to do workouts, Monday through Thursday, two hours a day. Hopefully, to get the guys familiar with my style and give me an opportunity to meet the guys and see what the guys can do.”

    Coaches in the Charlotte area know what Davis can do: win.
