    Believe it or not, we officially have entered November, the weather was warm through Saturday, Nov. 7, and the fishing has been fantastic Brunswick County. It seems no matter where anglers decided to go fishing, they brought back a bounty of fish last weekend.

    This was a banner year for our women’s golf club champions. Nine of our ladies repeated their victory from last year. Some have won it several times before. Mona Dye Boob from Brierwood has won its women’s club championship an astonishing 10 years in a row.   

    We also have some new winners this year. Lyn Howell (Brick Landing), Jayla Rogers (Magnolia Greens), Judy Harlow (Ocean Ridge) and Carol Davies Lilly (St. James) are Brunswick County Club Champions for the first time. Rogers is 14 and is a First Tee of Brunswick County golfer.

    Halloween weekend provided many Brunswick County fishermen with ample opportunities to get in on some late fall offshore fishing. The weather forecasters were a bit off on the marine forecast Friday, Oct. 30, yet it didn’t stop avid anglers from venturing to the Gulf Stream.

    This is a quote by Dr. Louis Daniel, director of the N.C. Division of Marine Fisheries: “A gill net ban is a failure of fisheries management.” (Cited from facebook.com/ncfisherymanagementandyou.)

  • Leo Jarmusz: Going strong at 96

    One of the best things about writing this column is the chance I get to meet some of the greatest people in the world. Not presidents or politicians, wealthy industrialists, movie stars or rock stars, mind you, but the wonderful salt-of-the-earth people that make this country great.

    One of these guys is Leo Jarmusz, who just turned 96, plays golf three times a week and has shot his age more times than he can count.

    I spent time with Jarmusz last week and let me tell you, he is the real deal.

  • Fishery issues heat up
  • October fishing at its finest

    Collegiate football, falling leaves and a crisp, cool north wind indicate fall has officially set in Brunswick County. Most folks take this time to enjoy pumpkin patches, haunted houses and fairs, yet fishermen want to be anywhere but on land. The on-land festivities have their perks, yet watching your son, daughter, wife or husband reel in their first big king mackerel or redfish is a memory you will never forget.

  • Brunswick County Literacy...

    The Brunswick County Literacy Council hosted its 25th annual golf tournament Oct. 17 at Carolina National. Wow. Twenty-five years of raising money for an organization that teaches those who are 16 or older to read.

    C’mon! I thought. Everyone knows how to read.

  • Sandpiper Bay renovating

    Golf is alive and well in Brunswick County and I’m delighted.

    Several years ago, it was a different story. The economy had tanked; golf rounds were down on the Carolina Coast and courses were closing here and there in the Myrtle Beach, S.C., area.  Bay Tee, Gator Hole, Ocean Isle Beach Golf Course and Calabash Links were gone.

    My husband, Gene, and I had worked hard all our lives and we had built a great retirement home on the third hole of Brick Landing. Then that course went into bankruptcy and closed.
