  • New Trojans' basketball...

    After a 1-19 season, West Brunswick boys’ basketball coach Brad Lewis has resigned.

    Lewis made the announcement to his team Feb. 22 after it had lost to Eastern Wayne in a first-round game of the N.C. High School Athletic Association Class 3A playoffs.

    “I didn’t get the job done as well as I would have liked, and I’m sure that the kids would have liked,” he said.

    “They gave me plenty of time, and everybody at West Brunswick was so good to me, and Coach Floyd and Coach Heady before him, especially.”

  • Spring's arrival will bring...

    Spring isn’t quite here yet, but it won’t be long before Brunswick County anglers will be out in force stalking those feisty spring redfish. Redfish travel in schools in the spring, cruising the shallows looking for shellfish and small fish to eat.

  • The Future of America's...

    Brant McMullan achieved some life goals when he attended and spoke Feb. 24 at the United We Fish rally at the U.S. Capitol to amend the Magnuson-Stevens Conservation and Management Act. But another goal—passage of a bill to amend the act—is still in doubt.

    “I thought it went really good,” McMullan said about the rally. “If I were to guess, 40 percent were from the New York-Massachusetts area, 40 percent from the Carolinas and the remainder from Florida, up and down the East Coast. A couple of people came from Alaska.”

  • Far out and cool stuff at the...

    I love the annual Carolinas Section PGA Merchandise Show and try to go each year.

    Last week’s show was bigger than last year’s. More than 1,500 golf professionals from all over the Carolinas and even farther assembled for elections, meetings, seminars and to preview what’s new in the world of golf products.
