Today's Features

  • Pocketbooks of all designs are once again in the spotlight for the North Brunswick Chamber of Commerce’s Fourth Annual Ladies Night Out Purse Bash from 5:30 to 9 p.m. next Thursday, July 19, at The Brunswick Center at Supply, 101 Stone Chimney Road.

    Only 400 tickets will be sold for this event, which sold out last year.

    Guest announcer will be Amanda Fitzpatrick of WWAY.

  • The show-biz bug bit China Grove native Darrell Harwood early.

    In the 1970s, his dad played in the local “Cool Water Band” and had an entertainment company that booked local dates.

    Occasionally, Darrell, a former electrician and lead production manager at Carolina Products Inc., would venture out with his dad and get up and sing a couple of songs.

  • Sure, we love the beach (isn’t that why we’re here?).

    But sometimes on a simmering summer day it’s nice to shift in a different direction and seek out some cool(er) fun for a while.

    Each of the South Brunswick Islands beaches has just the ticket to offer beach-goers a little respite and relief, not to mention recreation.
