I was a proud Boy Scout and Scout leader but had lost touch with the program.

However, my youngest grandson’s excitement over having just been signed up for Cub Scouts happened to open a window on some truly monumental changes in the Scouting world. Like me, you may have missed them.

Last month’s flooding from Hurricane Florence brought such bad news to New Bern and its neighboring cities, towns and communities.

There is a little bit of good news for New Bern this month.

The town’s best-selling author, Nicholas Sparks, is releasing a new book, “Every Breath.…

It’s no surprise. The rest of the 2018 oyster season, extending on into 2019, will likely be a disaster for North Carolina natural harvesters and cultivators.

“You’d better be careful,” my wonderful seventh-grade teacher, Miss Winifred Potts, preached to my class more than 65 years ago.
