Pender County Planners, along with consultants from the Cape Fear Council of Governments, have compiled a draft of the Comprehensive Land Use Plan Update. Pender 2.0 is an update and modernization of the 2010 Comprehensive Land Use Plan. The draft Comprehensive Land Use Plan was unanimously recommended for approval by

the Commissioners Advisory Committee and the County’s Planning Board Oct. 26, 2016 and Feb. 6, 2018. The comprehensive planning process provides county government the opportunity to assess where it is today, where it wants to go in the future, and a means to identify growth challenges and opportunities, while develop-

ing the tools to help manage development to achieve a more predictable future. The land use planning process establishes goals, policies, and recommended actions based upon public input and provide the basis for development standards and regulations. The plan will establish the need for coordination among county depart-

ments, neighboring counties, NCDOT, Wilmington Urban Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (WMPO), and with other local units of government on land use issues, transportation impacts, and capital improvement projects The draft plan has been delivered to the Division of Coastal Management’s (DCM) Wilmington District Planner

Randall Woodruff missioners will have until the last meeting in June to finalize and approve the 2018-19 budget. The new fiscal year begins July 1. Woodruff says the county is in good financial shape. “You never have enough money to do everything you would like to do, but we are strong financially and economically and our revenues have maintained and increased in some areas. Growth puts demands on county services,� said Woodruff. County officials are waiting on the budget proposal from Pender County Schools, but Woodruff anticipates an increase due to the opening of the new schools. “We don’t know the exact amount, but it is going to be a

It’s a rite of spring – stormy weather, pollen everywhere, and work on a new county budget. Pender County Manager Randall Woodruff says Commissioners will hold their first budget work session April 23 after receiving budget requests from county department heads. The good news is Woodruff says he is not anticipating a tax increase – that’s not to say there won’t be increases in the budget. Pender County Schools will need an increase in their operating budget as two new schools open this fall – Surf City Middle and Surf City Elementary – along with the new Penderlea School. All three will push the need for more school funding. “We will begin our April 23 work session with a brief discussion on all the requests from the different departments. We also go through all the non-departmental things in the budget, such as employee costs, benefits, and other costs that are not directly related to a department,� said Woodruff. Commissioners have three work sessions scheduled in May in addition to the April 23 session. Woodruff will submit a recommended county budget to Commissioners during the first May board meeting.

Although the exact plan for a new park on Courthouse Avenue in Burgaw hasn’t been settled, work is proceeding to clear and prepare the property. Demolition of the old doctor’s office building on the property began this week. Burgaw Parks and Recreation Director Zach White says the town board hasn’t decided what the new park will look like, but they are moving ahead with the concept of building a small park. “As far as the park goes, I’m waiting on the board to tell me what they want,� White said. “We have talked about public restrooms, a picnic area and shelter, but other than that, it’s still up in the air.� White expects the board will talk more about the project at their May meeting. With the restrooms at the north end of the Courthouse closed to the public during events on the Square, Mayor Pete Cowan said restrooms in the park would be helpful downtown. “We spend about $8,000 on portable restrooms each year at the Blueberry Festival. It would be good to have additional public restrooms available downtown during special events,� said Cowan. The Burgaw Town Board’s next scheduled meeting is May 15.

Notes from the Field, Part 3

What is it about sailing?

Bill Messer Trailerable daysailers are the boat of choice for landlocked sailors, taking the boat to the water with the unique advantage of access to water wherever the roads lead. Sailboats of any kind rely on steady winds for power, and a wide body of water for enjoyment. I had brought my small daysailer with me when I moved here from Raleigh. It was too small for ocean sailing, and I started looking for a bigger boat, an affordable sailboat. I found the boat: it was 20 years old, traditional in every respect, 30 feet long with a small inboard diesel engine for auxiliary power. It was seaworthy, but like all used boats, had a list of deferred maintenance items to take on. The first thing I did was to take sailing lessons, a week long project with daily classroom lessons and afternoons putting those lessons to work on the school’s boat. Then I started what would become several years of offshore sailing, mostly just outside Masonboro Inlet off Wrightsville Beach. When the winds were right, I’d come out the inlet and just keep going, out past the horizon, leaving land behind, with nothing but water on all sides. It was everything I had dreamed of, the joy of a steady breeze, and not running out of lake and having to tack around back and forth. Heeled over, running across the waves with ‘a bone in her teeth’, pushing the water aside forming a bow wave that streamed back along the sides of the boat, rushing away leaving a wake of foam, sometimes joined by a porpoise or two for company. There is a perfect expression in literature to describe the joy: from The Wind in the Willows, by Kenneth Grahame. In the story, Mole and Rat are rowing up the canal in Rat’s boat. They are discussing nautical things and life in general when Rat is heard to utter, Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing — absolutely nothing — half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats. Simply messing... about in boats — or with boats. In or out of ’em, it doesn’t matter. Nothing seems really to matter, that’s the charm of it. Whether you get away, or whether you don’t; whether you arrive at your destination or whether you reach somewhere else, or whether you never get anywhere at all, you’re always busy, and you never do anything in particular; and when you’ve done it there’s always something else to do.

I could not have said it better. There’s always something to do on a sailboat: they sit in saltwater, and once a year, or sometimes even two years, the boat must be hauled out and the old bottom paint scraped down to remove the marine growth and barnacles that accumulate, repainted, sacrificial zincs replaced, and everything below the waterline checked. Above the waterline, mold and algae want to grow on everything, and the shiny wood which is so attractive and ‘nautical’ looking – after about the third season of scraping, sanding and revarnishing, all-fiberglass boats started looking pretty good. The dodger, a marine canvas structure covering the companionway hatch, was sturdy, but still needed re-stitching from time to time, and the crystal clear marine vinyl windows slowly grew yellowed and brittle. My friend Dixie showed me how to sew the new material in place right over the old, then cut the old window out – the only way to maintain the shape, fit and curve of the original. My sails were functional but at 20 years, were old and tired, and already patched. I repaired the patches, and got a couple of years of service and when it came time to consider new ones, I opted instead to make my own, as well as the covers for the sails. I really liked making the sails, and the price for the materials and an industrial sewing machine equaled the price of a new set of sails, but the experience gained in making the sails – about a month’s work – was priceless. The original Volvo engine had problems. Raw water cooled, the internal water passages had silted up, and little water got through the engine. It would overheat at anything over medium RPM. Eventually I bit the bullet and had a new Yanmar with freshwater cooling and heat exchanger put in, and with a new three-bladed prop, I could practically water-ski! Well, maybe a little exaggeration, but the difference between four knots under power to more than six knots made it seem so. There were waterline concerns, too. The boat had a flush toilet, and in port and nearshore waters, the waste went into a holding tank to be pumped out from time to time. At sea, waste was pumped overboard through a seacock, a heavy duty bronze valve. There was another for the galley sink. And, of course, the water inlet for the engine. There was another device, a stuffing box, that kept the propeller shaft and Cutless bearing lubricated, and also kept the water from leaking into the boat at the same time. It was a very simple and reliable wax seal, squeezed under pressure just so, enough the count out

Boat maintenance is never really finished. There’s always something tp do, part of the fun of messing about with boats.

The sign on the door says it all “We will be closed Saturday Oct 8 due to the storm. We pray everyone will be safe.” There’s mold on the sign now, just as there is on much of the merchandise still visible in the store window. A handful of unfortunate insects became trapped between the paper and the window at some point, leaving behind a dried-out husks. I was early for an appointment in Fair Bluff the day I saw the sign, and went for a walk through downtown. My buddy George was the only business I knew was open, but since I’d already had lunch, I just went wandering. I grew up in towns like Fair Bluff, where small businesses and big ideas lined the streets. As tobacco and textiles fell by the wayside, some stores rebranded themselves, while others closed up shop. Fair Bluff wasn’t hopping, but it was still alive, when that sign was taped to the door on Oct. 7, 2016, as Hurricane Matthew brought a new brand of misery to thousands across our state. Miss Rhonda and I were but two of those survivors, as I have related perhaps too often. We didn’t get hit as bad as some folks, but we were hit far worse than many. We rolled through it. But my friends and folks I just know in Fair Bluff – and Kelly, Rattlesnake, Canetuck, Currie and elsewhere, for that matter – some of them are still waiting for the help that was promised to them within weeks of the stormwaters finally falling enough that folks could see what was left of their lives. Most people I know have no desire to accept help from the federal government, but sometimes one has to swal-

Regina Hill Post & Voice Columnist

Home Jefferson Weaver low your pride and do so. Matthew was one of those situations, and many of us gave in to the hard-selling tactics and signed up for one kind of assistance or another. Assistance. The very word is embarrassing for anyone who works for a living. It was bad enough to have to ask for help, then get turned down, then ask again, then get turned down, then ask again to get approved, but that’s how bureaucracies work. Efficiency doesn’t guarantee job security. Now, we dropped out partway into the frustrating, humiliating process. We had friends who stepped up to help, in ways that often brought tears to our eyes. Some folks don’t have those kinds of resources, and that is where the government should have stepped in. Yet for some reason, despite promises that the nightmare lessons from hurricanes Fran and Floyd had been taken to heart, some portions of our state government still haven’t coughed up the federal money that was promised to help folks in Southeastern North Carolina. How much? The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban

Development (HUD) wrote North Carolina a check for $236 million. Our neighbors in that other, Lower Carolina got a similar amount, and their funds have nearly been depleted, rebuilding homes and businesses and doing what they can to prevent another hurricane from destroying what Matthew left behind. Now, we have seen money from several sources – especially the Golden LEAF Foundation. A longterm fund like the LEAF shouldn’t have to be used to rebuild from a storm. The LEAF folks have a duty to help farmers and others affected by the loss of the tobacco industry, and they have done an outstanding job, in my opinion. Like the neighbors and North Carolinians who haven’t forgotten their roots, they jumped in when there were gaps that needed filling. The LEAF folks have made an incredible difference for a lot of communities in the wake of Matthew. But just because a firefighter tackles a bank robber, that doesn’t mean the police department no longer has to fight crime. In short,

Exercise to ease arthritis pain Dear Savvy Senior, What exercises are best suited for seniors with arthritis? I have osteoarthritis in my neck, back, hip and knee and have read that exercises can help ease the pain and stiffness, but I don’t know where to start, and I certainly don’t want to aggravate it. Stiff and Achy Dear Stiff, Many people who have arthritis believe that exercise will worsen their condition, but that’s not true. Exercise is actually one of the best treatments for osteoarthritis. Proper and careful exercises can help reduce joint pain and stiffness, strengthen muscles around the joints and increase flexibility. It also helps manage other chronic conditions that are common among seniors with arthritis, such as diabetes, heart disease and obesity. Here are some tips to help you get started. Recommended exercises D e t e r m i n i n g e x a c t ly which types of exercises that are best for you depends on the form and severity of your arthritis, and which joints are involved. It’s best to work with your doctor or a physical therapist to help you develop a personalized exercise program. The different types of exercises that are most often recommended to seniors with arthritis include: s2ANGE OF MOTIONEXERCISes: These are gentle stretching exercises that can relieve stiffness as well as improve your ability to move your joints through their normal range of motion. These exer-

Welcome to my world

cises should be done daily. s3TRENGTHENING EXERCISE Calisthenics, weight training and working with resistance bands are recommended (two or more days a week) to maintain and improve your muscle strength, which helps support and protect your joints. s!EROBIC EXERCISES ,OW impact activities like walking, cycling, swimming or water aerobics are all recommended three to five times per week to help improve cardiovascular health, control weight, and improve your overall function. It’s also important to keep in mind that when you first start exercising, you need to go slow to give your body time to adjust. If you push yourself too hard you can aggravate your joint pain. However, some muscle soreness or joint achiness in the beginning is normal. To help you manage your pain start by warming up with some simple stretches or range of motion exercises for five to 10 minutes before you move on to strengthening or aerobic exercises. Another tip is to apply heat to the joints you’ll be working before you exercise, and use cold packs after exercising to reduce inflammation. If you’re experiencing a lot of pain while you exercise, you may need to modify the frequency, duration, or intensity of your exercises until the pain improves. Or you may need to try a dif-

ferent activity, for example, switching from walking to water aerobics. But it you’re having severe, sharp or constant pain, or large increases in swelling or your joints feel hot or red, you need to stop and see your doctor. Exercising aids To help you exercise at home, the Arthritis Foundation offers a variety of free online videos (see Arthritis. org/living-with-arthritis/ exercise/videos) to guide you through a variety of exercises. Or there are arthritis exercise DVDs you can purchase for a few dollars through Collage Video (CollageVideo.com, 800-819-7111) or the Arthritis Foundation Store (AFstore.org). Also see Go4life.nia.nih. gov (or call 800-222-2225), a National Institute on Aging resource that offers a free exercise guide that provides illustrated examples of different exercises. If you need some motivation or don’t like exercising alone, ask your doctor about exercise programs in your area for people with arthritis. Hospitals and clinics sometimes offer special programs, as do local health clubs and senior centers. The Arthritis Foundation also conducts exercise and aquatic programs for people with arthritis in many communities throughout the U.S. Contact your local branch (see Arthritis.org/local-offices, or call 800-283-7800.

Mary Ellen Brown is my grandmother and one of the strongest, most loving people I know. At the age of 92, she holds loosely to the ties that keep her here, and in her own way readies us for the time when she will take leave of this Earth. In the shadow of her legacy, I am small. My Grandma raised five burly boys and a fiery, red-headed girl while working in a field most days. She did it exceedingly well. I’m barely hanging on by a twig with only two children to raise. Yet, I find room in my blessed life to whine. Never have I witnessed my Grandma utter a word of complaint, although some evenings her prayers were likely quite long. But, how could there be room for negativity in a heart so filled with compassion? As I drive my thirteenyear-old daughter to school, I’m struck by the offerings of the radio. Barely legible lyrics peppered with censored beeps, convey messages of rebellion, perversion and terrible grammar. Either the FCC has loosened its restrictions or I’ve become a prude, but much of what I’m hearing is a grand display of ignorance and lack of creative thought. These artists, and I use that term loosely, are wealthy beyond words as they rob the innocence from our youth. I could never imagine my Grandmother shelling peas on her front porch listening to Lil’ Wayne singing, “You wanna’ holla you can holla-take her on a trip. But when the deed done you gotta’ send her back.” She has way too much dignity for such nonsense. Grandma used her hoes to grow a garden and feed her children, while Lil’ Wayne uses his to bring in da dough, yo. Lil’ Wayne might be independently wealthy, but it’s hard to build a future with a &*@#W hottie. Grandma Brown might not be world renown, but she put good people on this earth. As I continue to vainly play beat the clock while trying to carve in a modicum of quality time with the family, I’m reminded that growing children isn’t about the number of afterschool activities with which they’re involved or the dusty trophies that adorn a bookcase. Rather, it’s in the mundane living of life, the routine and the building of values where our children are best served. Under the illusion of productivity, we run like rats in a maze in the hopes that advantage will be gained on their behalf but, in the end, the time lost will be the greatest regret. I open my front door in the evenings, cringing as I lay witness to piles of unwashed dishes, remnants of greasy bacon packages left on the couch by unruly dogs and dinner that sits frozen. I bark at Daniel, Lindsay and the dogs as my hopes for a peaceful end to the day is trumped by this forgotten chaos. My Grandmother was busy, of course, and her house was a hub of activity, but there remained an unspoken, unencumbered peace within its walls. It was a sanctuary built firmly on a foundation

No one has been able to supply me with a solid answer as to why North Carolina’s leadership is sitting on the federal storm rebuilding money. I hear speculations and opinions, but I am not yet at liberty to make those public. If they are true, it’s a sign of exactly how insidious party politics have become, and how callous some folks in Raleigh are to those they are supposed to serve – and those who write their paychecks. More than half the counties in North Carolina saw some kind of effects from Matthew. We saw more than most others down here in the Southeast.

home, too many people are still waiting to know if they’ll ever be able to live in their homes again. The wheels of government turn slowly, and are often out of balance, squeaky and not even designed to fit the machine to which they are attached – but they are still supposed to turn. I strongly suspect that some of those in charge of making those wheels turn have no desire to do so, since their storm damage has been repaired. Meanwhile, folks are losing what’s left of their homes, buildings are shells as empty as the exoskeletons of the bugs trapped behind that sign, and entire communities are wondering why they ever believed someone spouting the old line, “I’m from the government and I’m here to help.” There are those who had insurance, or rolled up their sleeves, counted pennies, and started over. There are others who have refused to give

up, even though there is no sign of hope on the horizon. There are some who also just walked away, and will never again return to the small towns that were founded four and five generations back by their families. I doubt when that sign went up in the window of the store in Fair Bluff, anyone expected the downtown would be closed more than a few days. I know some folks who had to take a boat back to their home on the Black River after realizing that this time, the storm was going to be more than an inconvenience. Most of us have stories and friends and families and maybe even businesses that have been sitting here, waiting for someone to open the door and take down the sign that says “Closed Saturday Oct. 8”. And far too many are still praying, nearly two years later, than everyone will be safe.

Communities in Schools Healthy Start Breakfast April 24 at Burgaw Depot By Lori Kirkpatrick Post & Voice Staff Writer The Board of Directors of Communities In Schools of Cape Fear (CISCF) will offer a Healthy Start Breakfast April 24. The light breakfast and 45-minute presentation will begin at 7:45 a.m. at the Historic Train Depot in Burgaw. The focus of the program will be on how “We are all in for kids,” to make sure our students succeed both in school and in life. Donations will be accepted but are not required from those who attend. According to CISCF, 62 students dropped out of schools every day across North Carolina last year. During the same time in New Hanover and Pender County Schools, Communities in Schools of Cape Fear provided services for 943 at risk students. Of those, 97 percent remained in school, 92 percent of them graduated from high school and 96 percent demonstrated academic improvements. The program’s mission is to surround students in need with a supportive community, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.

Communities In Schools is a local nonprofit supported by grants, corporate and private donations. The group offers programs in area schools and brings community resources, services, parents and volunteers together to help meet students’ needs. After school programs, non-traditional learning, teen parenting and dropout prevention are some of the topics addressed. CISCF offers a variety of programs to local students. In Pender County, Student Support Specialists at Freeman Burgaw Middle School, Cape Fear Middle School, Penderlea School, West Pender Middle School, Pender High School and Heidi Trask High School provide services to students identified as being at-risk of dropping out, or in need of specific intervention services. Students are linked with resources and programs including mental health counseling, tutoring, attendance monitoring, mentoring, and afterschool programs. The 21st Century Learning Center program is designed to help them meet local and state

Titan nine earns two wins By Bobby Norris Post & Voice Sports Writer The Heide Trask Titan varsity baseball team has picked the pace up in the last couple of weeks. The team struggled in the last week of March, dropping three games in a row. However, the Rocky Point squad has rebounded nicely, winning four of their last five. Last week the Titans hosted Coastal 8 foe Richlands early in the week before hosting Wallace-Rose Hill on Friday night. The home team Titans edged a game Wildcat squad 10-9 on a Will Andrews run

scored then dispatched of former conference mate Wallace-Rose Hill 15-5 in five innings. The Titans started their big left-hander Nathan Harrell against Richlands. The senior standout left in the fifth inning with over 100 pitches under his belt and the Titans nursing a 4-2 lead. Coach Ronnie Pruitt went with his closer in Justin Collier and the Wildcats had his number. Miles Jordan pitched the final three frames and did not give up a run. The score was tied going into the 10th inning. Trask had runners on second and third with no outs and se-

nior backstop Robbie Patterson stepped up and stroked a single up the middle to score Will Andrews. Jordan earned the win while Andrews had two runs batted in and four runs scored. Collier was 3-4 with two runs scored. Next up was Wallace. The Bulldogs found the going tough with the Titans hitting the ball extraordinarily well. The scoreboard read 10-2 after three innings. Wallace scored three runs in the top of the fifth but the Titans answered with three runs to end the game after five innings due to the state’s mercy rule.

Jordan went the distance to earn his second win of the week. He went five innings, giving up five hits and five runs. Only two of the runs were earned. Chase Foxbower led the Titans with a 2-3 performance that included three runs batted in and three runs scored. Jordan helped his cause with three hits and three runs batted in. Robbie Patterson was 2-4 with two RBI. The Titans are now 9-5 overall and 3-5 in conference play. They hosted East Carteret on Tuesday and was at South Brunswick on Wednesday. They finish the week at Dixon.

Pender baseball earns conference win, falls to Richlands By Bobby Norris Post & Voice Sports Writer Pender high varsity baseball coach Jeff Lee and his upstart Patriot baseball team started the season on a sour note. After dropping their first five games, they could have folded and just rode out the season. However, this team dug deep and responded positively. After beating rival Trask, the Pats have found their niche. That niche is never giving up and battling at every at bat and on every pitch. While that niche does not always translate into wins, the team is competitive in every contest. Last week the Pats opened the week with a 16-6 win over Coastal 8 foe Southwest Onslow. Pender broke open a 6-6 contest in the bottom of the sixth frame, batting around while plating 10 runs. Pender’s Chase Norris pitched 1/3 inning in relief of starter Josh Roberts to be credited with the victory. Stephen Brunetti was 3 for 3 with three runs batted in and three runs scored to pace the Patriots while Josh Roberts was 3 for 4 with four RBIs and three runs scored. Next up was a non-conference affair with East Columbus. The Gators beat Pender

9-6 at their place early in the year. This time they found a more competitive team on the diamond. Pender scored four runs in the first frame but found themselves down 7-4 after four innings. The Pats scored a run in each of the final two frames but fell 7-6. Daniel Parker took the loss on the mound. He went five innings, scattering eight hits while giving up seven runs. Only three of the runs were earned with the Patriots making three errors. Josh Barnhill led the Pats with two hits including a double and two runs batted in. The final game of the week was a home affair with a very good Richlands team. The Wildcats pitching staff held the Pats to just four hits in the contest while the improved Pender defense regressed with five miscues in falling 9-1. Pender’s ace right hander Tyler Norris took the loss. He went 4.2 innings, giving up nine hits and nine runs. Only three of the runs were earned. Josh Barnhill had two of the Patriots four hits. Pender, (4-10/4-3) was at home Tuesday verse Dixon. They were at Richlands on Thursday and at East Carteret on Friday.

Topsail Sports Roundup By Lee Wagner Post & Voice Sports Writer Girls’ lacrosse A tough week for the Lady Pirates (6-6, 3-6) concluded with a 14-2 Conference One loss at Hoggard (9-2, 8-1). Lady Viking twin sisters Clair (five goals) and Katie (five assists) combined to do most of the damage. Topsail trailed 3-1 at halftime behind a solid defense led by defender Emily Doane. Goals were scored by Delaney Popella and Hannah Jones. Jane Hobbs had 11 saves in goalTuesday the Lady Pirates fell 10-5 at home to West Brunswick. Jones (three), Popella, and Lucy Nestor-Dowling had the Topsail goals, while Hobbs had seven saves.The Lady Pirates were at New Hanover (2-9, 1-7) Tuesday and back home against South Brunswick (0-10, 0-8) Friday. Boys’ golf After spending a good portion of the season finishing behind the Cougars of South Brunswick, the Pirates had a breakthrough week behind medalist honors in two matches by juniors Max Johnson and Harrison Wiese. Topsail completed a sweep of its two conference matches Thursday at the 6,200-yard, Par 72 Lockwood Folly Country Club with a team total of 324 – 17 points ahead of runner-up South Brunswick (341). Johnson was the Medalist with a 72, three strokes ahead of Cougar Xavier Williams.

Other Top scorers were Wiese (82), Evan Higgins (84), and Anthony Tartaglione (86). Monday the Pirates recorded a team score of 321 for a narrow two-point win over the Cougars (323). Wiese (74) claimed Medalist honors followed by Johnson (78), Higgins (84), Barrett Holmes (85), and Tartaglone (88). “We’ve improved a little bit but we’re actually shooting about the same (team) score that we have been,” Topsail Coach Jamie Rochelle said. “South had a couple of kids that didn’t play like they usually do and that helped us out. We have two conference matches left and we’re down several overall strokes to South so it’s a longshot for us to win the conference. We’d like to win the next two matches but we’re going to *NCHSAAA) regionals, regardless. It’s just a matter of playing good that day, it’s a one-day tournament so we can move onto states. Topsail was at Compass Point (New Hanover) Monday and heads to Magnolia Greens (North Brunswick) next Monday for the regularseason finale. Track and field Saturday the girls’ and boys’ teams participated in the highly competitive Ashley Invitational. The girls finished ninth (41 points) out of 22 teams in the competition won by North Brunswick (71.5).

Vikings deal blow to Pirates title hopes By Lee Wagner Post & Voice Sports Writer The Topsail baseball team entered Friday night’s MidEastern 3A/4A Conference home game against Hoggard on positive note after an 8-5 win over West Brunswick and facing a team they defeated 10-5 on the road a little over a month ago. The Pirates trailed leaguer leaders New Hanover (13-1, 7-1) and Ashley (13-3, 7-1) by 1-1/2 games with the Wildcats and as tough South Brunswick (11-5, 4-4) on the schedule in the upcoming week –along with a road makeup game Wednesday at (8-7) South Central. So, it’s tough to determine if the Pirates were looking ahead, or if this was one of those fickle finger of fate games against the struggling Vikings (11-5, 4-4). Either way, the game produced a negative result for Topsail program, rendering not only this week’s game more important, but putting the Pirates on notice that no one left on the schedule should be taken lightly. Hoggard’s Parker Holmes blasted a three-run home run in the top of the fifth inning

and those became the eventual winning runs as Hoggard upset Topsail 8-6 in Hampstead. The loss dropped Topsail to 11-5 overall but, more importantly, to 5-3 in the conference – two full games behind the co-league leaders with a game at New Hanover Tuesday and a home game against the Screaming Eagles on May 1. Topsail handed New Hanover its only loss (1-0 on 3/16) but fell 2-1 at Ashley (4/6). There is also an April 27 home game against North Brunswick, which beat Topsail 2-1 in Leland (3/9). Hoggard jumped out to leads of 2-0 after one inning and 5-1 after two innings – two errors contributing heavily to the three second-inning tallies. An Elliott Blanton and a Hayden Walsh single accounted for the first Pirate run , and a single by Miles Cota (4-for-4, four RBIs) scored Petey Frey with the second Topsail run in the third. Holmes’ round-tripper made it 8-2 but the Pirates chipped away with two runs in the bottom of the fifth with a double by Colby Emmertz

In My Opinion Injuries are a part of high school athletics. There are times when a team can appear to be at the top of their game and all the sudden the bottom falls out. It only takes one or two injuries for a team to go from a contender to a middle of the pack team or even worse. In the game of basketball an injury to a starter is magnified. With only five players on the court at one time it only takes that one injury to derail what appears to be a championship season. A high school coach has to learn to roll with the punches. They know that in a moments notice their season can fall part. However, they also know that they are dealing with young folks. Some of these young athletes have an opportunity to play at the next level and what that high school coach does will have a direct bearing on their future at the collegiate level and beyond. A baseball pitcher is one of those athletes that have to be monitored. They have to watch how often they pitch and what they throw at a young age. I for one do not believe that a little leaguer should throw a curve ball. I believe that it is bad for their arm and can cause damage down the line. I have watched several players in the area have ma-

jor surgery on their arms and or shoulder. I can’t say that it is due to throwing the breaking ball early, but it sure didn’t help. In recent years the NCHSSA has instituted pitch counts for high school baseball pitchers. I believe that this has helped in our area and around the state. I can see where it could be a hindrance to a coach, but I also believe that a good coach will learn to work with the rule and even benefit from it. For instance, if the team you are playing is throwing their ace and you are having problems hitting him then maybe you tell your players to be more selective. Get that pitch count up so you don’t have to see him the whole game. I believe that it is a high school coaches job to protect their players and their futures at all costs. Even if it means losing a game. Of course, this is just my opinion.

Kickers Corner By Bobby Norris and Lee Wagner Post & Voice Sports Writers Saddled with several girls missing, including starting senior goalkeeper Hayley Childress, who is out for the remainder of the season, the Topsail girls’ dropped a pair of games this past week. Tuesday the Lady Pirates (2-11, 1-7) fell 4-0 on the road at West Brunswick, the Lady Trojans first Mid-Eastern 3A/4A Conference win of the year. “We controlled the game but just cannot finish our shots,” Topsail Coach Jenny Mix said. Thursday the Topsail girls returned home where they fell 10-1 to powerful and unbeaten Hoggard. The Lady Vikings have scored 42 goals while giving up just seven on the entire season. Tralyn Magliocco scored Topsail’s lone goal off an assist from Danielle Vara. Briana Vreuls had eight tough saves and Makayla Hart had two saves for Topsail. The Lady Pirates were home Tuesday against New Hanover and are at South Brunswick Thursday. The Pender Lady Patriots continue to find the going tough when it comes to playing the Onslow County schools. Last week they dropped a pair of Coastal 8 Conference matches.

Topsail’s Rachel Kapiko wins Heart of a Champion Award By Lee Wagner Post & Voice Sports Writer Topsail High School senior Rachel Kapiko was chosen as the North Carolina High School Athletic Association’s Heart of Champion last Saturday at an awards banquet in Chapel Hill. The Heart-of-A-Champion Award recognizes studentathletes who have participated in at least one varsity sport and remained ejectionfree during the school year. These students also exemplify outstanding citizenship and sportsmanship. The award is also sponsored by the NCHSAA Student Services Division and North Carolina Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Company. Kapiko was in a devastating automobile accident at the beginning of her junior year that put her in the hospital and curtailed her junior season on the volleyball court. A police officer who arrived at the scene after Kapiko was taken to New Hanover Re-

Rachel Kapiko with parents Leigh Anne Faulker and Jay Kapiko. gional Medical Center apparently voiced the question, “Is the person who was in that car alive.” Kapiko was not only alive but this tough and courageous young lady battled

pain and injury and wound up coming back to the volleyball court for the end of the season before playing a full season of basketball. Rachel was nominated for the award by Topsail Athletics Direc-

tor Barry West, who was not even at the school at the time of Kapiko’s accident, but was so impressed by her tenacity, and dedication, as well as involvement in the community that he chose to nominate her. “I nominated her because I got to know Rachel and her parents and I knew she had overcome something pretty devastating as far as the accident was concerned, the way it was described to me,” West said. “I felt it was just phenomenal, not only that she came back, but that she came back as quickly as she did. That’s just amazing from that type of devastating injury and show that much determination and resilience and dedication.” West said he was 99-3/4 percent sure that Rachel was the first one from Topsail to win the award because NCHSAA Director Que Tucker said she was glad to see that Topsail was active in the stu-

Lady Pirates top South Brunswick, Hoggard By Lee Wagner Post & Voice Sports Writer The girls on the Topsail softball team could have traveled two different paths Friday in their Mid-Eastern 3A/4A Conference game at home against a Hoggard team they beat by the narrowest of margins (3-2) back on March 13 – they could have hung their heads about virtually giving one away Thursday against rival West Brunswick, or they could show their resilience and put Thursday’s game behind them, using her second go-around with the Lady Vikings as the foundation for a successful second half of the

conference season. Fortunately for the blackand-gold faithful – and for their conference and NCHSAAA state playoff aspirations – this classy and dedicated group of young ladies chose the latter. Sophomore Maggie Smith had two hits, including a double, and knocked in three runs and classmate Lauren Strnad added three hits, doubling twice and knocking two runs in support of the twohit, four strikeout pitching effort of sophomore Addy Howard, another of this young stable of talented athletes, as Topsail defeated Hoggard 9-1 Friday.

“Besides the North Brunswick game I thought it was the most complete game we’ve played all year,” Topsail Coach Eric Phillips said. “Addy Howard hit her spots, and when we do that we can be dangerous. We can play defense with anybody and we can run with anybody, but we have to give our defense a chance.” Topsail (11-4, 6-2) scored twice in the first inning with one run scoring on an error and another on a Smith sacrifice fly, and it became 4-0 in the fifth with a Smith double plating Tanesha Williams and an error allowing Smith to score. The Lady Pirates broke

it open with five runs in the sixth with a Smith single accounting for one of the run, and Strnad double sending two more home. “We all did our part and did everything we could to bounce back,” Smith said. “Addy did very good, she hit her spots, and she did what she was a supposed to do. As for me, the first two bats were pretty rough but I went out there on the tee and changed my mindset and it just clicked and I figured out how to hit, making it better night for me.” Thursday produced a

Lady Titans fall to Richlands in five innings By Bobby Norris Post & Voice Sports Writer The Heide Trask Lady Titans have found the 2018 season to be one that they would rather forget. Last week was a prime example of how far the program has fallen. Richlands jumped out to an 8-0 lead and cruised to a 18-7 Coastal 8 win over the Titans. a day later the North Bruns-

wick Lady Scorpions took no mercy on the undermanned and rebuilding Titans, laying a 20-0 beating on the Rocky Point team. The final game of the week was at home verse Wallace – Rose Hill. The lady Bulldogs took an 8-1 win in what was the most competitive game of the week. In the Richlands game the Wildcats began to substitute freely after the third frame.

The Titans scored six runs in the fourth frame to cut the lead to 12-6. Richlands scored six runs in the top of the fifth, ending the game after five innings. Senior right hander Brittany Foy took the loss in the circle. She led the Titans at the plate. In the North Brunswick game, the Scorps were never threatened. The score was 14-0 after two innings and

18-0 after three frames. Trask was held to just one hit in the contest. Wallace was a more manageable team for the young Titans. despite the Bulldogs 11-4 record the Titans played them well. The Titans are now 4-10 overall and 2-8 in conference play. They hosted first place East Carteret on Tuesday and was at Dixon on Friday.

If first year Pender Lady Patriot softball coach Corrina Reece had to use just one word to describe her Lady Patriot team it would be depleted. An already thin team suffered a major blow last week when their top pitcher and one of the top hurlers in the area in Lauren Gammons was deemed unable to pitch. The sophomore had one of the best records in the area and was on her way to an

Benavides looks to get things started for Trask By Bobby Norris Post & Voice Sports Writer The lead off spot on a high school baseball team is one that is of the utmost importance. It is the player that sets the tone for the rest of the game. The perfect leadoff player has to be one who will sacrifice himself and his statistics for the good of the team. At Heide Trask that player is sophomore Gage Benavides. Gage has grown in leaps and bounds this season. he has learned how to be a valuable part of the team. He has learned the inner workings of being a leadoff batter. In recent weeks Benavides has limited his mistakes at the plate and has been more patient. That has translated into being a much better hitter. The Titans are in an important stretch and Gage Benavides is out with an injury. The Titans need their leadoff batter on deck and ready to go.

The Pats rode a very good performance both in the circle and at the plate by freshman Haley Schaeffer to an 11-3 win over Southwest Onslow to get the week started. They fell a day later to East Columbus in nine innings and then lost to Richands 15-3. “Lauren will be evaluated this week, “said Reece. “She is suffering from wrist pain

but hopes to be able to come back and pitch. She is swinging a hot bat.” Pender jumped on Southwest in the first inning to the tune of five runs and went up 9-0 after three frames. The game was never in doubt from there with the freshman Schaeffer doing her thing in the circle and at the plate. Schaeffer scattered five hits and struck out five in picking up her first win as a high school pitcher. She was also very good at the plate, going 3-3 with two doubles and four runs batted in.

Topsail’s Kapiko has the heart of a champion By Bobby Norris Post & Voice Sports Writer When Rachel Kapiko was injured in an automobile accident during her junior year she was relegated to the sidelines when it came to one of the things she loved, volleyball. The determined young lady did not let her setback get the best of her. She worked diligently to return to the court and did in fact return late in the season. She also played basketball. Miss Kapiko was recently chosen as the NCHSSA Heart of Champion last Saturday. Rachel was nominated for the award by Topsail Athletics Director Barry West, who was not even at the school at the time of Kapiko’s accident, but was so impressed by her tenacity, and dedication, as well as involvement in the community that he chose to nominate her. Miss Kapiko is an excellent student athlete and person. She sets a great example for others following in her footsteps.

Holmes was 3-4 while Ashley Dupalavich was 2-3. Next up was a non-conference affair with East Columbus. The Lady Gators scored a run in the bottom of the ninth to take a hard earned 7-6 win. The game was tied 3-3 after three innings. East Columbus scored two runs in the fourth and one in the fifth before the Pats scored three runs on a Gammons homerun in the top of the sixth to tie the score. The Gators scored the

Pender County’s weekly look at what’s biting and where

Area anglers looking forward to the blues By Bobby Norris Post & Voice Fishing Fanatic The area anglers are getting ready for the blues. There have been a few of these feisty fish caught in the area with a couple being good sized. Most of the talk is about the red fish bite. The angler that wants to take the time to find a dock or oyster bed or any other structure and tie on their favorite lure can find success. The backcreek marshes are also a good place to find these tasty guys. The folks I have talked to have used both live and artificial baits. The surf fishing is just beginning to improve. There have been some black sea bass caught as well as a few mullet. Cut shrimp will work here. There have also been a blue or two caught as well as an occasional redfish. The local piers are excited to see some warmer weather. There have been a few anglers out and they have found a few black drum have been caught. However, the fish of choice seems to be the Virginia mullet. These

guys are being caught on shrimp and have been biting well after dark. There have been a couple of nice blues caught as well. The freshwater anglers are getting their boats ready while others are finding their best spots on the banks of the local ponds and lakes. The crappy bite is lukewarm while the bream bite is picking up. Red worms will work for the bream while live minnows and crickets will work for the crappie. This weeks fishing tip Although the temperatures are rising, the mornings are still pretty chilly. There is nothing worse than getting out on the water and finding that you are ill prepared for the weather. Make sure that you go ahead and prepare yourself for the early morning temps. Dress in layers so that as the sun comes up and the temperatures rise that you can remove a layer. If you are lucky by mid-morning you can be down to your best tshirt. And by the way, a thermos full of hot coffee will make those chilly mornings much more enjoyable.

Top Performers By Bobby Norris Post & Voice Sports Writer The Pender Patriot softball team has struggled with injuries and other unforeseen obstacles this season and has still been in the hunt for the Coastal 8 conference title. Last week the Lady Pats beat Southwest Onslow behind the pitching and hitting of freshman Haley Schaeffer. The freshman righty scattered five hits and struck out five in picking up her first win as a high school pitcher. She was also very good at the plate, going 3-3 with two doubles and four runs batted in. Tyanna Holmes was 3-4 while Ashley Dupalavich was 2-3. Lauren Gammons was unable to pitch last week because of a sore wrist but did her best to contribute. She was 5-5 in the Pats one run loss to East Columbus. She had a dinger and four runs batted in. The Trask Lady Titans continue to struggle. However, one bright spot is the play of senior Brittany Foy. The Topsail Lady Pirates won two of three last week. Sophomore Maggie Smith had two hits, including a double while driving in three runs and classmate Lauren Strnad added three hits,

Pender’s Holmes a true twosport standout By Bobby Norris Post & Voice Sports Writer As a freshman on the Pender Lady Patriot basketball team Tyanna Holmes has shown plenty of potential. She cut run, jump and shoot with the upperclassmen and was one of the most athletic players on the team. With all of the accolades she has had as a freshman on the hardwood, basketball is not her best sport. Tyanna Holmes is a fantastic softball player. She has it all on the softball diamond. She can hit, field and is one of the fastest if not the fastest player on the Patriot squad. Miss Holmes is a superb fielder. She can play multiple positions including catcher and shortstop. She has manned shortstop for the Patriots this season and has been rock solid in her limited time on the high school diamond. With three years remaining, the sky is the limit for Pender Lady Patriot freshman Tyanna Holmes.

doubling twice and knocking in two runs in support of the two-hit, four strikeout pitching effort of sophomore Addy Howard as Topsail defeated Hoggard 9-1. Topsail beat South Brunswick behind the play of Tyesha Williams and Darby Lisk. Jake Volpe led the Topsail men’s lacrosse team to a big conference win over South Brunswick. He scored five goals with Eli Copeland adding two goals. Isabela Bufalini won her event at the Ashley Invitational last week. Adam Hart won both the shot put and the discus throw at the meet. The Topsail baseball team dropped a tough one to Hoggard. Miles Cota went4for-4 with four ribbeys in the loss. Pender beat Southwest Onslow 16-6 with 10 runs in the sixth frame. Chase Norris pitched 1/3 inning in relief of starter Josh Roberts to be credited with the victory. Stephen Brunetti was 3 for 3 with three runs batted in and three runs scored to pace the Patriots while Josh Roberts was 3 for 4 with four RBIs and three runs scored.

One thing I learned was this: scientists and earth watchers are rightfully concerned about the accumulation of discarded plastics in the oceans and waters and the land. The problem, they say, is the stuff never deteriorates. I’m telling you, if it’s made for marine use on a boat, the plastic part or fixture will dissolve away or turn to dust in no time at all.

Aluminum and chrome plated fixtures oxidize and rust. My old boat was conventional in every way, including proper lights – the portholes, heavy bronze fixtures.

So, here are some flashes from the “WAY-BACK- PAST” of Pender Spring Fest! Here you will see pictures of some Pender People who had the idea that we needed an opportunity to celebrate our talents and that good ole’ country life style which we enjoy here, in Pender County! They set the wheels in motion... and some of them are still plugging along today to continue to bring you our county’s Hand-Made, Home-Made and Home-Grown Celebration... Can you name them with the year for each picture? (Hint= In most of them a magnifying glass might give you a good look at the T shirts! And they are in order, from oldest to more current...)Call your answers in to Rochelle Furniture (910 259 4844) and be the first person with the most correct answers and you will win a free lunch at The Carolina Eatery, in downtown Burgaw! Clue 1 This picture, of a founding member of Pender Spring Fest, was taken at the very first festival...A LONG TIME AGO!!! Clue 2 This long time Spring Fest Member is still keeping our festival happening...He continues to be an active community member by running a local business and serving on the Burgaw Town Board. Clue 3 This father and son team have been “Spring Festing” since that little one could walk! Now- a-days, you’ll see the big one helping folks get their places set up on the square, while the little one runs the GAMES! (Hint -- He’s not so little now! And he is busy teaching those wacky Drama Kids at Pender High School!) Clue 4 This meeting of the Festival Committee happened before two of our members retired...But their positive energy still inspires us all to keep on celebrating the Good Life here, in Pender County!

Roundup Continued from page 6A The girls were led by the distance team, starting with school freshman record setter Isabela Bufalini, who recorded the Lady Pirates only firstplace finish with a 5:21.77 – breaking her own previous mark of 5:23 set earlier this year. Bufalini then teamed up with Bailey Wells, Makayla Obremski, and Skylar Libretto to finish fifth (10:44.00) in the 4x800 relay. Obremski was third (1:00.67)

Topsail Continued from page 6A (2-for-3) and a Cota single making it 8-4. Topsail mounted another rally in the bottom of the seventh with Frey leading off with a walk, Emmertz stroking a double, Cota hitting a single to score Frey and Emmertz. After a strikeout, Evan Blanton walked –putting two on with one out. But Viking relief pitcher Cody Lachman struck out the next two Pirates to preserve the win. Only two of Hoggard’s eight runs were earned runs. The Prates began the week

Lady Pirates Continued from page 7A tough 6-4 loss to West Brunswick in a game that could go a long way to determining both the conference champion and the top 3A seed in the NCHSAA state payoffs. West took an early 1-0 lead in the top of the first. The Lady Trojans made it 2-0 in the fourth on a single, a walk, and a single, and increased the lead to 4-0 in the fifth three hits and an errant toss on a potential fielders’ choice. After being stymied on one infield hit through the first four innings by West’s pitching ace Morgan Beeler, the Topsail bats came alive in the bottom of fifth. Strnad (2-for-4, R/S) and Julia Sullivan (2-for-4, R/S) singled and Christine McLean dropped a beautiful sacrifice bunt attempt that resulted in a bunt single, loading the bases. After two harmless pop-ups, Sydney Hartgrove (3-for-4, three RBIs) – who had the earlier infield hit – singled to score Strnad and a hustling Sullivan,

tions provided by the selection committee a remarkable essay pointing to her twin brother (Grayson) as the person who she admires the most for overcoming what was diagnosed as Autism Spectrum Disorder. Grayson not only overcame some early-life difficulties, he was a valued member of the Pirate football program and is now headed to college upon graduation. Part two of the question-

naire/essay dealt with drug and alcohol use and what she has done to promote alcohol, tobacco and other drug usage, and Rachel related this to the drunk driver that hit her car and caused the accident and how she has carried that forward in attempting to educate her peers, and part three asked how the experiences in sports helped outside of the playing arena. Kapiko talked about how she made a plan

for recovering and how she learned patience and perseverance through her healing process. West felt it was the essays,, along with Kapiko’s experience, that resulted in her winning the award. “I did know that I was nominated because a part of the nomination was writing two different essays explaining the story and how sports has impacted me, and how this has

impacted my community, and I found out that I won, maybe, a week or two ago,”Kapiko said. “Honestly, it’s an honor to be nominated for these great awards, winning the Star News Varsity Courage Award last year, and now his year the Heart of a Champion. Being nominated by Coach West, who was not here when the accident took place, but seeing those qualities in me without fully knowing what

I’ve been through was really just and honor.” After graduation, Kapiko – who has a 4.976 weighted GA and who scored 1,400 on the SAT – is slated to attend the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where the two-year varsity volleyball standout and four-year varsity basketball player will major in Biology, Pre-Med as a prelude to becoming a physical therapist.

The sprinters chipped in with Madison Lofton finishing fourth (12.42) in the 100-meter and a ninth (1:03.00) in the 400 while joining up with Carmen Pyrtle, Abigail Hunt, and Isabel Hayes for seventh (53.50) in the 4x100 relay. Hunt, Pyrtle, Hayes, and Dashaniq Sidbury were seventh (1:54.89) in the 4x400 relay. Also scoring were Ariana Blevins (8 th in long jump; 15-50 and Hannah Spillane (seventh in triple jump; 32-10).

out of 22 teams in the competition won by Croatan. Senior thrower Adam Hart scored 20 of the points with a first (53-6) in the shot put and a first (150-8) in the discus. Hayden Rogerson was seventh (5:0368) in the freshmen 1,600-meter run. The rest of the Pirates’ points came from the foursome of Zaryeon McRae, Leo Rojo-Fascenicia, Kolton Olson, and Connor Murphy with a seventh (1:39.30) in the 4x200 and the quartet of Bryce Dillon, Eddie Wofford, Travis Souza, and Brad Kimmel with a fourth (8:3779) in the 4x800.

Next up or these athletes is a trip to South Brunswick Thursday for a conference meet with North, South, and West Brunswick. Boys’ lacrosse Friday the Pirates (7-5, 5-4) fell 17-3 on the road at Conference One leader Hoggard (13-1, 10-0). Jake Volpe had two goals, Eli Copland scored a goal, and Leighton Randall had, two assists. The Pirates opened the week with an 18-1 victory at home against West Brunswick behind five goals and an assist from Jake Volpe, three goals

apiece from Eli Copeland (three assists) and Tanner Beaudoin, two scores from Nick Haddock (assist). Jeremiah Richardson (two assists) and Leighton Randall (assist) also contributed. Six other Pirates either scored or assisted.Topsail was at New Hanover (8-4, 7-2) Tuesday and returns home to face South Brunswick (2-1, 1-8) Friday. Boys’ tennis To p s a i l ( 5 - 6 , 3 - 3 ) w a s blanked for the second time this week with a 9-0 home loss to South Brunswick (8-2, 4-2). Cougar Joseph Delmastro

The Pirates were blanked 9-0 by Hoggard 7-4, 6-2), which racked up its second sweep for the second day in a row. The Vikings won all six matches in straight sets, dropping just three games in three doubles’ matches. Topsail was at New Hanover (5-1, 5-0) Monday, is at West Brunswick (1-6, 1-6) Wednesday, and on the road again at Laney $4-2, 4-2) Friday.

one day earlier with an 8-5 conference win over visiting West Brunswick. The Pirates exploded for seven runs in the bottom of the first inning, then rode the arms of Cota (5IP, three K’s, five hits, five runs, one earned run, four walks) – who was pitching with a hamstring injury and with a goose egg on his pitching arm after being hit with the ball running to first during the first inning – and Noah Gaither (1IP, two K’s) for the win. “Miles pulled his hamstring about two weeks ago and it’s still not 100 percent but he pitched well,” Rimer said. “The two runs in the first inning were the result of an

errant pick of attempt and the wind was blowing out. It wasn’t an easy environment to pitch in and he battled his tail off. We didn’t play the best of games but what we did do was we had great at-bats and we capitalized on every mistake. “They played amazing defense. They probably made five Sports’ Center Top 10 plays. Their right-fielder (David Warth) made the two best plays I’m probably going to see all year in the same game. He literally robbed Colby of a home run when he jump up over the fence and brought it back, and he took a sure double from Elliott (Blanton) by crashing into the fence and

making the catch. They didn’t make every play but they made every spectacular play they could make.” After West took a 2-0 lead on the miss-communicated pickoff attempt, the Pirates obliterated the Trojans 2-0 lead. Shane Nolan (2-for-4, three RBIs) was the catalyst with a leadoff single. Frey doubled to score Nolan, alertly taking third on the throw home. Cota plated Frey with a fielders’ choice where he

was safe at first. After an out, Evan Blanton reached base, on an error with Cota moving up a base. Walsh walked, Chuck Major was by a pitch, and Aidan Smith walked to make it 5-2. Nolan came up for the second time in the inning and doubled to send Walsh and Major home The Trojans scored run in the top of the second on a walk, an error, and single but the Pirates answered when Emmertz slammed a home run to

right field in the bottom of the frame. West Brunswick added a pair of unearned runs in the top of the sixth before Gaither closed the door in the seventh with a pair of strikeouts and a fly out. Topsail was at New Hanover (Legion Stadium) Tuesday for a critical game against the Wildcats and they took to the road Wednesday for a nonconference, makeup game at South Central before heading to South Brunswick Friday.

formance that included three runs batted in and three runs scored. Jordan helped his cause with three hits and three runs batted in. Robbie Patterson was 2-4 with two RBI. This week’s top performer is Rachel Kapiko. She was chosen as the North Carolina High School Athletic Associa-

tion’s Heart of Champion last Saturday at an awards banquet in Chapel Hill. The Heart-of-A-Champion Award recognizes studentathletes who have participated in at least one varsity sport and remained ejection-free during the school year.

who just beat the throw home from the outfield. Three hits and a RBI groundout allowed the Lady Trojans to increase their lead to 6-2 in the top of the sixth. Topsail made things interesting in the bottom of the seventh when Tanesha Williams reached base on an error, Nee Nee Jordan had an infield single, Hartgrove doubled to score Williams, and Smith singled to plate Jordan. But Beeler got a pop up and two strikeouts to end the threat and the game. “I was a weird g ame,” Philips said. “The wind blowing in at about 30 miles-perhour and we hit too many balls up in the air (13 fly-ball or popup outs). I didn’t think they hit us hard, maybe two hard hit balls. Seeing-eye singles and bleeders here and there and it worked. Overall we hit the well but we’re a different team when we get our first two runners on, then we can bunt and play small ball. That’s what they did to us tonight, and we didn’t get the first two on consistently.”

One day earlier, Topsail had an easier time while disposing of South Brunswick 11-4 at home. The Lady Pirates got RBIs from Darbie Lisk and Tyesha Williams in the first inning and a RBI single from Jordan that scored Sullivan (1-for-2, walk, R/S), who had singled, moved to second on a sacrifice bunt by McLean, and stole third. The Lady Cougars hung tough early with a pair of unearned runs in the second and an earned run in the third, but Topsail broke the game open with five runs in the bottom of the fourth with Lisk, Strnad, and Hartgrove (2-for-4, two RBIs). Consecutive singles by Lisk, Strnad (1-for-3, RBI), Sullivan, and McLean preceded an error on a ball hit by Tanesha Williams, and an intentional walk to Jordan. With two runs in and the bases loaded, Hartgrove (2-for-4, two RBIs, R/S) unleashed a double to right that upped Topsail’s advantage to 9-3. Topsail was at New Hanover Tuesday and is at South Brunswick Friday

Pender-Topsail Post & Voice, Thursday, April 19, 2018, Page 2B

One thing Jesus doesn’t know By Rev. Ken Smith Contributing Writer Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, and saying, where is the promise of his coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. 2 Peter 3:3-4 Edgar C. Whisenant was a former NASA engineer and Bible student who predicted the Rapture would occur in 1988. He published the book, 88 Reasons Why the Rapture Will Be in 1988. You might be surprised that Whisenant sold almost 4.5 million copies of his book. What probably doesn’t surprise you is after 1988 sales of his book plummeted. The reason is apparent – Whisenant joined a long list of people that thought they knew something that Jesus Christ didn’t.

Many people in the early church thought Jesus Christ was going to return to earth in their lifetime. Some of them prayed that Jesus would come back and be among them before the pain of this world became unbearable, yet their prayers went unanswered. When this happened, their neighbors would mock any beliefs in Christ’s return. When the apostle Peter heard that these scoffers were attacking the faith of Christians, it troubled him. In response, Peter wrote to believers, telling them, Do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping His promise, as some understand slowness. Instead He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. (2 Peter 3:8-9). Jesus said that no one

In other words, it is not up to human beings to set or predict a time for the millennium to come or for Jesus to return to earth. The reason Christ has not returned and brought an end to this present world is because God is a loving and patient Father. God wants to leave more time for people to be saved, to give everyone a chance to know the saving grace of His Son, Jesus Christ.

could know the time of His return, not even Him. However, no one knows the day or hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son himself.

When someone places a date on the return of Jesus you can easily point to that text in the Gospel of Matthew and ask, “Are you God?�
