  • Making use of Christmas gifts

     

    By Darren deMaille

    If you are a golfer, chances are you were given some gifts this year related to golf, some good and maybe some not so. I am a difficult person to shop for, as I usually have everything I need related to golf; however, this year there were a few great gifts that Santa brought to me. Now, two weeks post Christmas, it has given me time to make use of these gifts. Here are my reviews. Please feel free to share your reviews with me or stop by the DD Golf Academy to show them to me.

     

  • With the new year, begin a new...

     

    I thank Elsa Bronstein for the wonderful introduction last week and her service with the Beacon for the last several years. She left big shoes to fill and I hope I can bring the same enjoyment she has given to so many people over the years. I wish her the best of luck with her new ventures and may she continue to touch people as she has done.

  • Hoping for great weather, great...

    The past few weeks have been filled with shopping and traveling to see relatives, but believe it or not the new year is finally here. There have been many different forecasts and predictions for how good and bad the fishing will be, but this week, I’d like to give a quick recap of what good and bad occurred in 2016.

  • Darren deMaille new golf...

    Exciting news for the readers of Golf Gab: You will have a new golf columnist starting in January. Darren deMaille will be taking over and I’m thrilled. 

    I met deMaille last week for lunch and we had a great visit. He is one terrific guy, a PGA pro and a teacher of the game of golf who owns the Double D Golf Academy in Little River, S.C.

    In addition to his golf credentials, he has written about golf for newspapers in Connecticut, New York and Florida. He recently published an article in Golf Digest about starting a teaching academy. 

  • This is the season to be fishing...

    As winter proceeds to dig its roots into our region, hard northeast and southwest winds have sent most fishermen either into a tree stand or back inside the inlet in search of redfish and trout. Although both alternatives can produce action-filled days, they rarely fill the void of hearing an outrigger pop or simply being out of cellphone range for a while — both urges that drive fishermen to extremes at times. Yet with the average wave height of 6 feet last week, almost everyone has turned to his next best opportunity at outdoor excitement.

  • BCC teams enter break with...

    BOLIVIA — The Brunswick Community College women’s basketball team finished 3-0 in the Holiday Basketball Classic, improving to 9-2.

    BCC, an NJCAA Division II team, opened the tourney by beating Division II Delaware Tech 63-49 Dec. 15 at the Dinah E. Gore Fitness & Aquatics Center gym.

    For BCC, Lauren Jenkins scored 13 points and Briana Jones 11. Other Dolphin scorers: Amaris Houston 8, Jayda Malone 7, Corkie Aquafredda 7, Sydney Harrison 6, Danielle Brisson 5, Dellasia Freeman 3, Lakita Basnight 2, Leilani Emile 1.

  • Winter weather slows fishing in...

    By Derek Treffinger

    Christmas is quickly approaching yet it seems the only thing under the tree for Brunswick County fishermen is bad weather. In the past two weeks, the days to venture offshore have been few and far between. One would think that cold, wet weather would be holding most fishermen from going offshore, yet this time of year usually revolves around wind.
