  • Community comes together to...

    I often get teary-eyed when I’m asked to write an article about the people of Brunswick County and their generous, gracious ways. We have dozens, no, hundreds, probably thousands of folks right here who, each day, make a difference in the lives of children, teens, adults, the elderly, disabled, homeless, and the poor.

  • Fall arrives, so do the kings

    It is amazing how the weather can change so much, so fast. A strong cold front pushed through our area on Friday night and within hours temperatures dropped to the 60s and fall was here in full force. Since then, lows at night have fallen into the 40s, and as a result, water temperatures have dropped 3-5 degrees. As a result, the bite is on.
