    Whatever your career, whatever you love in this life, there is an organization for your passion.

    Are you a CPA? You will probably be a member of the AICPA (American Institute of Certified Public Accountants). Do you like to garden? There are many garden clubs in our area. Rotary Clubs allow business people to interact for mutual benefit. The Red Cross contains a legion of volunteers who will be front and center when a hurricane approaches the Carolina coast.

  • Trojans begin season 3-0

    LELAND—Different approach, same result.

    The West Brunswick boys soccer team beat the North Brunswick Scorpions 6-0 Monday evening, the same score by which it beat them in the season opener.

    This time, however, the Trojans used a different style of play in the first half. Rather than attacking, the Trojans worked on set plays, and the second team played nearly as much as the first team.

    West led 2-0 at halftime but scored four goals in seven minutes at the start of the second half.

  • Scrimmages have good moments

    Some impressions from the scrimmages.

  • What to do between seasons

    Mid-August to mid-September is sort of the stepchild of fishing seasons. The summer bite has mostly shut down, and the fall bite has yet to begin. The main reason for the slow down is from the high water temperatures.

  • Now is time to think about spot...

    It may still be August, but it is not too early to start thinking about spot fishing. The last few years have been down ones when it comes to the annual spot run, which draws hoards of anglers to our piers and marinas seeking our most beloved little saltwater panfish. However, there is reason for hope.

    This has been an unexpectedly good year for flounder fishing, following some rather bad ones. Whether this is due to more stringent regulations or just species fluctuations is a matter of debate, but clearly there have been more flounder out there.

  • World Amateur draws global...

    The PGA Superstore World Amateur Tournament celebrates its 25th anniversary this week. Golfers from 47 states and 48 countries are playing golf, walking the beach, shopping, partying and having a great time.

    The World Amateur Handicap Championship was started in 1984 by Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday as a way of getting folks to come here during the dog days of summer when golf courses languish half-filled in the heat and humidity.

    In that first tournament, 684 golfers came to Myrtle Beach, S.C., had a great time and talked it up when they got back home.

  • Bob Marston makes hole-in-one at...

    Bob Marston of Lockwood Folly Country Club, the recent winner of the Golden Boys Sy Schaffler Invitational Golf Tournament, made a hole-in-one Saturday on the 16th hole.

    Marston used an 8-iron from 132 yards, and the ball dropped into the hole on the fly.

  • Beacon, ATMC gear up for...

    High school football is getting ready to kick off and The Beacon and ATMC want to make sure everyone is ready for another season.

    The Beacon recently teamed up with ATMC to produce a preseason coaches’ show.

    ATMC Channel 3 began broadcasting the coaches’ show 7 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 19, and will continue every night at 7 p.m. until Saturday, Aug. 23.

  • Army veteran wins medal at...

    The one sport Kevin Coleman played when he was in high school in the late 1970s in Washington, D.C., was basketball. He returned to Washington last month to catch a flight for a basketball tournament in Omaha, Neb. This time, he played in a wheelchair.

    Coleman was one of hundreds of veterans participating July 25-29 in the National Veterans Wheelchair Games. The games are the largest annual wheelchair sports event in the world, and they were presented by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and Paralyzed Veterans of America.
