  • Not feeling up to par? It could...

    A few weeks ago, as I was grabbing a muffin prior to a Club 25 event at The Lakes, a group of gals from Lockwood Folly collared me and suggested I do a column about heart attacks and women.

    They said that a couple of ladies from Lockwood had sought medical help just in time to avert a serious heart attack. What made it interesting was their symptoms were not the usual ones associated with cardiac problems. No chest pain, no pains in the left arm.

  • BCC wins first-ever volleyball...

    With five Brunswick County players on the roster, the Brunswick Community College volleyball program played and won its first-ever match Sept. 10.

    Before a crowd that filled nearly three-fourths of one side of the West Brunswick High School gym, the Dolphins beat the Lenoir Community College Lancers 25-21, 25-21, 20-25, 25-22.

  • Yarbrough wins Myrtle Beach...

    MYRTLE BEACH, S.C.—Shallotte driver Sam Yarbrough clinched the Late Model Stock Car championship Saturday night at Myrtle Beach Speedway.

    Yarbrough drove conservative races in the final Whelen NASCAR Late Model Stock Car races of the season at the historic track. Yarbrough, driving his family-owned Late Model, made sure the championship would be his by finishing fifth in the first race and eighth in the second.

  • Inspiring others to run

    After talking about running to Joe Yalch, you’d probably be inspired to run 3 miles.

    At South Brunswick High School, at least 28 students are willing to do so as members of the Cougars’ cross-country team.

    Twenty-eight—that’s the size of some Class 1-A football teams.

    Yalch, in his first year as head cross-country coach, is an inspiration himself. He decided he wanted to run a marathon, and did so two years ago—after he trained rigorously.

  • Dispelling myths about fish and...

    With the fall fishing season just about upon us, it is time to re-examine our local inshore fishing myths. I have addressed some of these before, but since they crop up every autumn, now is a good time to dust them off and either debunk or certify them. Once the fish start hitting, I’m in it for myself and I’m not telling you anything.

  • Couple's trip to Quebec...

    In the winter months when it’s cold outside, many of us sit in front of our fireplaces and plan trips. I have a suggestion. Instead of thinking of Alaska or far west or a Caribbean Island, why not plan a trip to Quebec for next summer? Then, when the temperature and humidity soars on the Carolina coast, you’ll be playing the links in slacks and a sweater.

    My husband and I have been to Quebec three times—on our honeymoon, then for a family reunion and just a few weeks ago for a second romantic trip a deux.

  • Golf action

    BEACHCOMBERS

  • Ocean Isle Beach surfers win...

    Ocean Isle Beach once again can claim to have two of the best surfers on the East Coast.

    The East Coast Surfing Championships—the oldest-running surfing contest in the United States and the largest on the East Coast—took place Aug. 21-24 at Virginia Beach, Va. Jesse McCrery won the Masters Championship (for those 18-34) and Owen Moffett the Men’s Championship.

    Michael Powell, a former Men’s Division champion, finished second in the Open Championship.

  • Bicyclist rides again to raise...

    Bike rider and fundraiser are inseparable words to describe Roy Cundiff.

    On Saturday and Sunday, the Sea Trail resident will participate in Bike MS. This is a 150-mile bike ride from and to New Bern to raise funds to support people living with multiple sclerosis in eastern North Carolina and throughout the United States.

    “To me,” Cundiff said, “it’s a good cause. Secondly, it’s good exercise. And it’s a goal, my objective for the year.”
