  • A Christmas wish for you

    Writing this column every week is both a job and privilege. I have been The Brunswick Beacon golf columnist since Sept. 12, 2002. That’s 483 columns.
    It’s hard to believe, because time flies when you’re having fun and I love being your golf columnist. I’ve assembled an idea file about 2-inches deep in the drawer next to my desk, thanks to you. People email me ideas, they buttonhole me in Walmart and they call me on the phone. I could write columns for the next six months without straining to find a topic.

    First of all, Merry Christmas to all the anglers and seafood cooks of Brunswick County. I think I have spoken or otherwise communicated with more of you this year than any other year before and I admire the fact that despite the economic hardships we are all facing it seems as if more of you are out hunting and fishing than ever before. You are also doing a great job of passing the ultimate interactive sports on to our children.
