  • 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. 

  • Scorpions lose twice in tourney...

    BOLIVIA — The North Brunswick boys’ basketball team lost its two games in the inaugural Brunswick County Sherriff’s Office Christmas Tournament.

    East Columbus beat the Scorpions 53-51 Dec. 19 and Whiteville beat the Scorpions 84-73 Dec. 20 in games at the Dinah E. Gore Fitness & Aquatics Center gym.

    North is 2-7 this season.

    In a first-round game, East Columbus took a 53-51 lead with 71 seconds left on a pull-up jump shot.

  • 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.
