     LELAND—With a new defensive backfield and a new starting forward, the West Brunswick High School soccer team beat North Brunswick 4-1 in a conference game Sept 14.

    Junior forward Scottie Melvin also scored in the first half and Nick Carozza had two assists. Junior Jonathan Newhouse scored West’s goal in the second half, about a minute after North’s Carlos Mateos had cut the lead to 3-1.

    SPECIAL TO THE BEACON
    Neither a misfiring ignition box nor the surrounding mayhem could keep Chad McCumbee from delivering ModSpace and Andy Belmont Racing (ABR) from another impressive top-10 finish Sept. 5 in the Southern Illinois 100 at the DuQuoin State Fairgrounds.
    The driver of the No. 1 ModSpace Ford Fusion was forced to give up his ninth-place starting spot when the team decided to change the ignition box as a precautionary measure before the 100-lap race for the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards.

  • Stay well for life

    EAGLE LEVEL PARTICIPANT
    There are so many different ways to stay healthy for life. The First Tee has encompassed life skills for eagle level participants that reach outside of the arena of golf. One of which is staying healthy for life.
    This is important to me as I work to become a better basketball player and golfer as well as stay fit and healthy. I have always enjoyed eating healthy and working out.

  • Highlights, scores of area golf...

    The Beachcombers played a Stableford tournament Friday at Carolina Shores. The winners with a score of 22.5 points were Dan O’Connell, Bill Cameron and Ed Hennessey. In second with 13 points were Gary Gutheil, Paul Michal, Bob Smith and Jack Goin.

  • A retrospective of Sept. 11, 2001

    My family had an intimate knowledge of the World Trade Center in the years before 9-11. My husband’s firm, Deloitte & Touche (then Deloitte, Haskins & Sells), took up five floors of the North Tower starting in 1980.
    We have many happy memories of the World Trade Center: dinners at Windows on the World Restaurant; the whooshing express elevator that brought you from the lobby to the 110th floor in a matter of seconds; the views of Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, New Jersey, the Hudson River, the Battery and the Statue of Liberty.

  • There’s been fair fishing this...

    Sometimes you have to make things worse before they can get better. I believe such is going to be the case with our local fishing.
    This summer has been fair fishing, but nothing spectacular. After the wind of July, August was actually a good weather month, but most of the offshore fisheries were lacking. The water temperatures had risen into the mid- 80s, and despite clear waters with lots of baitfish, the predators just weren’t present.

  • Military Appreciation Day...

    Inshore fishing has slowed down a bit but, hopefully, that is just the usual slack time between late summer and fall. Some big fish are still being caught and offshore fishing is decent.
    Before I get to the fishing report, I want to comment on the Military Appreciation Day (MAD) 6 event that went on Saturday at Oak Island. The MAD events are terrific daylong celebrations of our heroic U.S. military forces, with local (and some non-local) charter captains and saltwater boat owners volunteering to take the troops out for a free day of fishing.

    SPECIAL TO THE BEACON
    Bell and Bell Automotive presented Champions Night Saturday at the historic Myrtle Beach Speedway. W.C. Bell and family have supported local racers and the speedway for more than three decades. He was honored by 2011 NASCAR Whelen All-American Late Model Champion Justin Milliken in a pre-race ceremony for his contributions to the sport.
    The track had a moment of silence and divisional champions did ride around the 0.538-mile facility with a huge American flag in observance of the 9/11 attacks.
