  • Fun finds for Father’s Day gifts

    Father’s Day is June 21, so I have explored great gifts for dad and some fun things to do in our area.

    I went to PGA Superstore in North Myrtle Beach, S.C., last week and spoke with John Wagner, the general manager. A jovial, articulate man, we had a blast looking at the latest in clothing lines, then we moved on to gadgets and gizmos for the golfing dad.

    SHALLOTTE  — West Brunswick senior Brett Babson signed a letter of intent June 2 to play baseball at Southeastern Community College in Whiteville.

    “I want to get a start on (college baseball) and continue to play ball,” Babson said. “I plan to transfer and go on to a four-year college.”

    Worley Edwards, the SCC athletics director, was at the signing. (SCC is interviewing for new baseball coach.)

    SHALLOTTE — West Brunswick senior Saadiq Johnson has signed a letter of intent to play basketball at Averett Unversity in Danville, Va.

    “They recruited me hard,” Johnson said. “I fit in well with the players in the program. And they win — I like to win.”

    Johnson will be receiving nearly $21,000 per year from an academic scholarship.

    “It helps my family so I can go up there, play basketball and get an education,” he said.

    Averett showed an interest in Johnson in the fall.

  • Gulf Stream wishes come true

    Last weekend provided anglers a perfect example of what summertime fishing off our coast is all about. The weather finally calmed to where almost any angler with a boat could have fished nearshore on Saturday, May 30, and Sunday, May 31. While fishing in these nearshore waters, anglers experienced great Spanish mackerel action as well as a few stray cobia on the 3- to 5-mile artificial reefs. These cobia will continue to populate artificial reefs and ledges as the water temperatures increase. Live and dead baits such as menhaden and squid are perfect offerings for the curious cobia.
