Across the stage into a new life

BOC to look at Cedar Avenue situation at Monday meeting By Andy Pettigrew Post & Voice Publisher It’s not exactly the toll booth from the 70s movie Blazing Saddles, but a Surf City neighborhood began charging a $5 toll on through traffic Memorial Day weekend. Drivers seeking a way around the busy Hwy. 210/50 intersection on their way to Topsail Island use the private road Cedar Avenue as a cut through. But residents of the neighborhood say the private residential street can’t take the extra traffic. Surrounded by Surf City, Cedar Avenue is actually outside the town limits and in Pender County’s jurisdiction. Residents hope the N.C. Department of Transportation will take over maintenance of Cedar Avenue. But

the NCDOT is not anxious to add more street mileage to the list of roads they already maintain. Before the state will even consider adding a street to state maintenance, it must already be built to state standards. And Cedar Avenue is not, along with a great many other private roads in Pender County built by developers before county ordinances required street standards in developments. Commissioner David Williams says the Board will discuss the Cedar Avenue situation at Monday’s BOC meeting. “This is a strategic road and we are hoping we can bring some influence to bear on the NCDOT to get something done about this,� Williams said.

Pender County, CFPUA mull water agreement Pender County officials are talking with Cape Fear Public Utility Authority concerning a possible connection to CFPUA for water in eastern Pender County. Growth in the county threatens to put a strain on available water capacity along the U.S. 17 corridor. A new waterline from Rocky Point to Hampstead is in the early planning stages, but it

would be several years before water would actually flow. Until then, residential growth continues to explode in the east, along with demand for water. “A connection with CFPUA would give us another source of water until we can build a new line from Rocky Point,� said County Manager Randall Woodruff. “We have the plant capacity, we just don’t have a way to get more water to the east. The more interconnectivity we have the better.�

Notes from the Field Part II

Finding one’s inner peace

Bill Messer Yoga festivals attract all kinds of people, and vendors offer an amazing array of interesting things to consider – soothing balms, healing crystals, healthy thing to eat and drink, and tie-dyed clothing. I had spent most of a Saturday morning recently at Poplar Grove Plantation attending a fund-raiser for the Roots of Recovery project, which will provide substance recovery services for mothers and children in a selfcontained community. Early in the visit I had met Eela Dubey, a yoga leader, and was on my way to the big barn to see her lead the first event of the day, and on the way met and talked to a wide variety of interesting people who told me why they were there. I had noticed a group, more or less dressed alike, who looked different from the mat-carrying attendees. Once again, I introduced myself, and was surprised to learn who they were. “Lululemon,” I exclaimed, delighted to see them, and acknowledged their company’s support of the Roots of Recovery project. “We’re from Lululemon Myrtle Beach. I’m Alex, I’m a key leader,” she said. Julie, from northern Virginia, answered my next question, “What makes Lululemon special?” “We have yoga gear for men and women, and its designed to last a long time. It’s super comfortable. My dad wears it, and he loves it. It’s made with Spandex and other materials.” Moving down the line to the next representative, “Hi, I’m Cat, also from the Myrtle Beach store, I’m a key leader, too. We also have educators here.” The company support staff not only attend, but are active in outreach, product support and delivering the message of the ethos of the company. I left them and detoured across the exhibit area to the ex-school bus painted in bright colors, with tie-dyed clothing on display, and interesting things scattered about. One thing caught my eye, a ‘throne’. “Are you a drummer?” I asked, by way of introduction. The ‘throne’ is a special seat for drummers. “Sometimes, a little,” he said, and I asked him to tell me about his bus. “I’m Tim Symonds, from Rochester, NY and then

Florida. I traveled a lot until my daughter came along, and now live in Florida. I’ve lived in the bus for three years. The bus is a 1996 International with a Thomas body,” he said. “Ever since I read about the “Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test, I’ve wanted one, too,” I said. I referenced the true life account by Tom Wolfe of Ken Kesey and his Merry Pranksters and their travels aboard “Furthur”, their psychedelic bus, as well as the birth of the hippy movement. Kesey is best known for his first novel, “One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest”, and his next, “Sometimes A Great Notion”, considered his best work. Like Tim, I was familiar with the work and events of the story, but had not actually read the book. I recounted my own life experience at the time the book came out. “It was the age of the beatniks, being ‘cool’, reading poetry, burning incense, drinking tea. There were no head shops in Milledgeville, Ga, with incense, but, because I was a Catholic, and an altar boy, that was no problem, though stealing incense from the church seemed not quite right,” I laughed. “Do you do your own tiedying?” I asked. “Yeah, I’ve been doing tie-dying for over twentyfive years. I’ve done silk screen, had a press until last year, when I moved into the bus, no room for a six-color press.” “Do you do yoga?” “No, I do something similar, Egoscue, a set of exercises for postural alignment. I have slight scoliosis, and was in mild pain for twenty years, but after the exercises, and in about a month, strengthened the muscles and now I’m free of pain.” Continuing on to the next yoga mat carrying person, she said ,“I’m LeAnne, I’m from Southport.” “Is this your first event of this type?” I asked. “Yep. We saw it on Facebook, and it looked like it would be fun. I’ve been doing yoga on and off pretty much my whole life,” she giggled. “My mom does yoga.” “What kind of yoga do you practice?” I asked. More giggles, “Pretty much anything.” And more giggles, “I’m not a real good one to interview,” she said so I moved on to her friend Lily. “My lifetime, too, off and on. We’re not very serious,” she offered. “Do you have a central focus you work on, or just freefloating?” I asked, “Are you going to do the goat yoga?” This provoked lots of giggles from both, “I’ve seen that, with goats standing on their backs. I don’t think I want to try that,” LeAnne said. “We’re both dental hygienists, and do it for the

Yoga Festival at Poplar Grove’s big barn, finding inner peace and self-awarenes

Jefferson Weaver

The Vampire Locust of Summer Normally, I am rather philosophical about all God’s creatures. While I will do all I can to prevent a hawk, coyote or fox from stealing one of my hens, I do not particularly hate said wild things. I am far too forgiving when possums find hidden clutches of eggs. I have related before my live-and-let-live policy regarding snakes. While I will soak a wasp nest with pesticide if it’s too close to the house or barn, I usually leave them alone if they leave me alone. Few and far between are the spiders I cannot tolerate, as long as they are working for a living. Note that I said I am philosophical, if not downright tolerant, of God’s creatures. I am of the opinion that all varieties of biting flies, however, are creations not of an omniscient, omnipresent, loving God, but instead were engineered from leftover hatred and spite when Lucifer was cast out of Heaven. As if horseflies were not bad enough on their own, everyone who lives within spittin’ distance of a swamp in Southeastern North Carolina has to deal with yellow flies. Even a mosquito has a certain amount of honor – they just stab and suck blood from their victims. Biting flies, however, have appendages like scissors that they use to saw through flesh to lap blood. Any bug that uses probosces (that’s the plural of proboscis, by the way) to slash a hole in its victim simply must be a contrivance of Satan. I exaggerate, of course, since the Bible clearly states that the Evil One can’t create. It also points out, in Genesis Chapter Three, that when Adam and Eve were kicked out of the Garden of Eden, all manner of things that had previously not been a problem – thorns, biting serpents and the like – were suddenly parts of everyday life. I’m fairly sure biting flies of all descriptions were

Jefferson Weaver among the first things God turned loose on our errant ancestors. I nearly sustained a broken leg once because of a horsefly about two inches long. That might require a bit of explanation. Despite the use of bait stations, ear tags, and a .22 rifle (seriously) we were enduring a major invasion by horseflies. We’re talking about bugs big enough to laugh at you when you slapped them and made contact. Bugs that would make a bad dog cry. My poor horses were taking the worst hits, and while I am not a big one for dumping more chemicals into the landscape, I gave in to good sense and stewardship and purchased a bottle of stuff designed to make flies avoid animals. I figured the reaction would be about like that of my dogs when they get sprayed with flea treatment, in that a firm hand, a strong word and some reassurance would prevent the worst of the hysteria. I was wrong. Whether it was the hiss of the spray bottle of the sting of the spray, I have no idea, but I ended up being dragged a good 10 feet by a horse best known for being rock solid and fearless of anything. I was kicked, twice, during this little adventure. The first time might have been an acci-

dent. The spray worked, however, and old June had some relief for about 5.35 minutes, which was how long it took her to roll in the sand and scrub off all the fly spray. It was with tremendous frustration that I watch a horsefly the size of s small hummingbird zero in on my old mare, hover for a moment, then find a place that was untouched by the pesticide, which had caused my hands to go numb. Future applications involving a sponge, rather than a spray bottle, were only slightly less hazardous to my health. Horseflies, at least, one can usually see or hear coming. Yellow flies, however, are the ultimate minions of Satan. How they can gnaw through a shirt is beyond me, but they can, will and do so. Horseflies at least have to try, and considering one can easily be knocked down by the weight of most horseflies, you have some warning. Not so with those nasty, lightweight tigerstriped psychopaths. Have you ever tried to shoot a yellow fly? It doesn’t work. One can, with enough patience, put a BB or even a .22 through a horsefly; I will admit there have been several I have encountered of late that really needed a load of buckshot. One required judicious use of an axe, and for a while there, it was touch and go. Usually, however, a carefully aimed and properly backstopped .22 will reduce even the largest, most recalcitrant horsefly into fishing bait. However, you can’t shoot a yellow fly. There just ain’t enough that to aim at, as the old saying goes. Horseflies have the decency to settle down at sunset, yet many is the night I have been awakened by the sawing, gnawing, welt-inducing jaws of a yellow fly.

Tracking down items you misplace Dear Savvy Senior, Can you recommend any products or devices to help seniors track down lost or misplaced items, like car keys, wallet, cell phone, etc. My husband has become forgetful in his old age, so we spend a lot of wasted time looking for things. Frustrated Spouse Dear Frustrated, There are actually a wide variety of tracking devices that can help you and your husband find items that are commonly misplaced or lost. Here are some top options to consider depending on how tech savvy you are. Smartphone or tablet users If you or your husband uses a smartphone or tablet, you can easily track down lost or misplaced items like keys, a purse, wallet, remote control, smartphone, tablet or laptop with a Bluetooth tracker like TrackR (thetrackr.com, $25 or $30 per tag) or Tile (thetileapp.com, $25 per tag). Both of these products pair with an Apple or Android smartphone or tablet app, which will help you locate the missing item. All you do is attach a small TrackerR or Tile tag to the items you want to keep track of with an adhesive sticker, a key ring or you can just slip it inside the item. Then, when a tagged item

goes missing, you simply access the app on your smartphone or tablet to see how far away you are from the item or last known location on the map. If you’re within 100 feet, you can make the tracking device ring so you can follow the sound. Or, if you or your husband loses your phone or tablet, both TrackR and Tile work in reverse, allowing you to press a button on the device to make your phone or tablet ring (even if it’s on silent) as long as it’s nearby. And to help you avoid leaving items behind, TrackR can be set to sound an alarm when there’s too much distance between your phone and device. Low-tech finders If, however, you or your husband don’t have a smartphone or tablet, there are radio frequency devices like Click ‘N Dig (clickndig.com) that can help you find lost/ misplaced items. This device comes with one finder fob/ remote and four or six tags for $26 or $39 respectively. Attach a tag to the items you want to keep track of with adhesive or a key ring. Each tag is color-coded and corresponds to a colored button on the finder.

When an item goes missing, you simply press the colored button on the finder fob and the tag will flash and beep. The signal will go through walls and cushions, but you’ll need to be within at least 60 feet of your lost item. Make sure you keep the finder fob in a safe spot, because if you misplace it, you won’t be able to find the tagged items. Another good option, and one that doesn’t require a finder fob, is Find One Find All or FOFA (findonefindall. com). This device can manage up to six items.

Welcome to my world

Regina Hill Post & Voice Columnist

Goodbye Amidst the comfort of sleep, the phone rings and intuition relays a warning before the first word is spoken. In the blink of an eye, the world shifts as my sister speaks the words I’ve anticipated for many months, yet pushed to the back of my mind. Grandma Brown just passed away. Rather than sitting around the kitchen table enjoying new potatoes and cucumbers from her garden, the last few months found our family gathered around a hospital bed arranged in her living room-a makeshift hospital room staffed by her children and grandchildren. Her body, once strong and sure, slowly surrendered to time as the roles of parent and child shifted. Although Grandma’s responsiveness ebbed and waned, the care provided by her family never did. My family gathered at Grandma’s the following morning, the drive to her house an eternity as my stomach formed knots in anticipation of her not being there. But, instead of witnessing grief, the yard was filled with children playing hide and seek as her porch became a gathering spot for my uncles and aunts. In every corner of her house, friends and family gathered, recollecting the many memories held within its walls. Though her physical body yielded to time, her spirit was palpable-in her children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews and neighbors who joined together on that beautiful Sunday afternoon to comfort one another and celebrate her memory. At the crux of my still childish mind, I’m taken aback by the idea that my Grandma, Mary Ellen Brown, will no longer live in her little white house with its green shutters and wide front porch. My mind turns itself over, looking for pieces of Grandma in the memories she’s built for our family. I remember outings at the bowling alley as Grandma played with her ladies’ league and squeezing into her van as she hauled my cousins to Vacation Bible School. On summer afternoons, we’d gather around her feet to shell peas or dodge yellowjackets beneath grapevines heavy with Muscadines. I squeeze my eyes tightly to remember the enchantment of my childhood and worry that it will fade. My Grandma lived simply and with intention. She woke up early, worked hard and held a strong faith with little luxury for wasted time. I know that the world I see is vastly different from the one she lived and I pause, not only for the loss of her, but also in the loss of what she takes with her. At once, I want to learn how to grow a garden and can vegetables as an urgent need to untangle my daughter from her earbuds tugs at me. I whisper a promise to shift priorities, spending less

days, I walk outside and recall my own humanity. I watch cardinals gather at birdfeeders, pull weeds from flower beds and allow calm to take over as I sit on my front porch for the first time in months. In one corner, I notice a paper wasp laboring at a nest while a spider feverishly weaves silk into a

perfect geometric trap. I take a moment to survey all that’s mine and realize how my world is both vast and small. I look up at an infinite sky and then below at a line of ants walking in succession. I’m struck at the wonder of how everything fits and how small I remain in comparison to it all. What

course, but I have a lot of ammunition. One could legitimately accuse me of exaggerating just a tad when it comes to dealing with the Vampire Locusts of Summer. I would humbly agree that I tend to get a bit irritated at these repugnant varmints, as such, may get a bit more loquacious as well

Currently we’re putting in the drives and sewer, we’re moving toward August, which means maybe January,” she laughed. Just outside the door, I met a guy with a mat, told him I’d been talking to yoga gals all day, and he said, “I’m a yoga dude, Major White. I’m in the resort development and management business. We build resorts all over the world, Bahamas, Mexico, Hawaii. I live here, but get involved in project away from home two or three years at a time, and come back home four times a year. Favorite places? Italy, Australia, been living in Cabo San Lucas for the last two years.” Moving inside the barn, I watched the first class conclude and talked with some of the people milling around before the next class. I met Eela’s friends. “I’m

Vimala Vasudevan. I’ve been practicing yoga for seven years now. I’m from the south of India, a place called Mysore, close to Bangalore.” She indicated her friend, “We’re both from India but her language is very, very different. She agreed, “I’m from the north and she’s from the south. I’m Nivedita Mittal. You can call me Mini. I’m from the same Institute (as the instructor Eela Dubey) but I got trained in Jacksonville. Mercedes Stewart was teaching at Kaivalydham, and training teachers here in Jacksonville and Richland. My attractions? The inner mind, more the spiritual part than the physical part.” Next I met Mercedes Stewart. “I became her (Eela) mother’s student in 1996, and I taught Mini. I had an experience in the ‘70s, when I was 7 or 8 years old, a guided meditation that really struck me, then found an old yoga book at a yard sale and practiced on my own. I found one yoga studio in Atlanta,

a pregnancy yoga class in a studio above a garage. My husband at the time was a Marine, and I told him I would come but I wanted art, yoga and Montessori. When I started the Montessori school, one of the founding members was her mother.” As I had expected, the event attracted a diverse assortment of attendees, there to explore the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of the discipline of yoga, to come closer to the fulfillment of life and living it surrounded by the aura of health and well-being. Too soon, I had to leave for another event. Namaste, y’all.

All hands in and all hands on By Taylor Maready Special to the Post & Voice The weather is warm, the water temperature is perfect and the visibility is clear, like Carribean clear on Topsail Island this week. Before I jump in to the awesome finds this week, let me introduce myself (and our whole team). My name is Mr. Taylor and I, along with my amazing ocean loving team, operate Ecological Marine Adventures (or EMA for short). EMA is Topsail Island’s marine science center. We do all sorts of fun things, but in the summer we put on summer camps – not your average summer camp, but your “all hands in and all hands on” summer camp. We study ocean species, and then we head out to the field to find them, catch them, hold them, study them and grow to love them before returning them back to their homes. Which leads me to this week, which I would like to share with you. With super visibly (clear) water, we were able to spot some amazing finds like cownosed rays, a three-foot shark (he was swimming too far down to identify species from the pier), schools of large drum, hundreds of juvenile fish, calico crabs, sea squirts and even part of a sea turtle release. This week has been fantastic. In fact, the Surf City Pier had a huge visitor, a leatherback sea turtle, which is the largest turtle in the world. Google them and prepare to be amazed.

tions allowed us to spot some really spectacular creatures, but i want to share one of our favorite little guys, the Florida pompano. We love catching Florida pompano at EMA! During our winter and spring classes, we were missing our Florida pompano, so we are so excited that they are back! Their season movements are dependant on water temperature, which is why we have not been catching them this winter. Catching Florida pompano means summer is fast approaching and chances are that if you are on the beach with your dip nets this summer, Florida

pompano are what you will catch in abundance. These guys can be identified by their yellowish coloration on their belly, their yellow tinted pelvic, dorsal and anal fins, and their shiny silver sides. They like to live close to the shore, especially on sandy beaches like Topsail Island and feast on mole crabs, small clams, and other small animals. There is also an African pompano that can be found in our area. African pompano can be the size of one of our campers, just over 4 feet tall. The ocean is an incredible place.

when a bunch Hollywood’s. Dennis wanted to use up all his remaining “peseta’s” and ordered the most expensive menu item, the filet mignon, which cost the equivalent of about $50. When his meal came, he picked up this tiny piece of meat, and asked, incredulously, “What the hell is this?” He then proceeded to eat it in two bites. He was so mad. Coincidentally, the best steak I ever had was also in Spain, and it was also the biggest. We were on a trip across the mountains to San Sebastian, on the north coast of Spain. In the middle of nowhere there appeared a famous barbeque restaurant which had two things on the menu, pescado (fish) and steak. We chose the steak for two, and I am forever glad we did, as she wanted to get the fish. Out came this incredible slab of beef on a stone cooking board. I remember thinking it was like the Flintstones, when Fred would order the brontosaurus steak. The lady cut a piece for me, and I asked her to put it back for a couple of minutes as it was pretty rare. She refused, saying that it was still cooking as we spoke. And she was right. I finished that whole steak by myself because my companion wanted to wait for the dessert. It was absolutely delicious. Now, after writing this, what shall I have for dinner tonight?

If you know me, you know I am a beef person. Yes, I like a good, homemade turkey burger – and yes, my mother cooked chicken dozens of different ways, and I love chicken. And yes, I have to have a strategy so I don’t burst at a turkey dinner…and Pender County sausage, well, you just can’t beat it…and then there is lamb, from costillas (ribs) to shank to leg, I just love the lamb. But, beef is my favorite. I’ve written in the past about cheeseburgers. Lane’s Ferry bacon double cheeseburger is my second favorite all time, right behind my sister’s 73% in a cast iron skillet with swiss and caramelized onions on rye bread…but, now it’s time to talk steak. Yup, we were more the hamburger and hot dog barbequers growing up. When we did have steak, it was usually chuck, and usually pretty tough on the jaws and teeth. I think the breakthrough came when, after winning the annual 108mile bike race from my hometown to Montauk Point (Long Island) at age 16, my father had a porterhouse waiting for me when I got home. It was heaven on earth Now, I’ve had some good steaks since then. I’ve learned that New York strips, if done right, are very tasty. Big Daddy’s in Kure Beach has a great one. I also enjoy on my birth-

day and Father’s Day, a good ribeye, with or without the bone. I had a great one at Texas Longhorn once, only to break my tooth on a foreign object in a bread roll. I got a free dessert out of it, but the dentist bill the next day was $140! My father is famous for going to the store looking for good steaks to buy. He freezes them and gives them to me when we visit, often taking the filet (or Delmonico) out for himself. He always throws a couple of strips or ribeye’s my way. Is he trying to make up for the chuck steaks of my youth? He will also want to cook up a steak for me for lunch, but I’d rather have a steak for dinner, and besides, he always has a pound of thin sliced Boar’s Head roast beef in the fridge, which, together with the good bread, Hellmann’s (or Dukes) and beautiful tomatoes, make a lovely sandwich. No one makes the standing rib roast like my brother Steve, a work of art, a thing of beauty – melt in your mouth, tender as can be, perfectly cooked and seasoned. Combine that with some of his “mir poux” and you have a truly great culinary experience. One to rival my brother Greg’s Beef Wellington. I taught for seven years in Barcelona, Spain. Steak, or “bisteak” was not something I normally got, as seafood, lomo (pork), cordero (lamb), and paella (rice) were more the standard. One of the funnier steak moments occurred

Post & Voice County High School Female Athletes of the Year By Bobby Norris and Lee Wagner Post & Voice Sports Writers

Dupalavich named Patriot female athlete of the year

During the summer months before the 2017-18 school year, the Pender Lady Patriot volleyball team followed veteran coach Matt Davis over to Topsail high school twice a week to play in the high school summer volleyball league. The Lady Patriots were honing their skills in anticipation of entering the newly formed Coastal 8 Conference. That is where the Lady Patriots began to form the bond required to make a run at the conference championship. That is also where junior Ashley Dupalavich began her journey in what would become a very successful junior season. That junior season has ended with the talented young lady being named the Post-Voice Pender High school female athlete of the year. Ashley played multiple spots for Coach Davis and the Lady Patriots. She is a talented setter as well as being able to play the front line and back line. She came through time and again as the Lady Patriots forged out another winning season. They ultimately fell in the third round of the state 1A playoffs. By the time that the spring rolled around Miss Dupalavich was nursing a shoulder injury. That injury forced her to abandon her natural spot of catcher for first base. The standout junior played the position well and helped the Lady Patriots earn a playoff bid and a first round victory. Ashley had a great spring softball season despite the injury. She batted a stellar .443 with 29 runs scored. She had 25 runs batted in and also had 10 doubles on the year. She hit three homeruns as well. After talking to her coaches, there is one thing that stands out about Ashley. She is a team player and is easy to coach. “I love Ashley, “said head softball coach Corrina Reece. “She will do anything you ask of her and she never complains.” Patriot volleyball coach Matt Davis echoed the same sentiments. The 2017-18 school year brought a lot of changes at Pender High School as well as the whole county. One thing that did not change was the way that Ashley Dupalavich approached each and every game she played in both volleyball and softball. She gave it her all and always had a smile on her face. She personifies the word sportsmanship. The Post-Voice is honored to be able to recognize rising senior Ashley Dupalavich as the 2017-18 Pender High School female athlete of the year.

Little named Pirate female athlete of the year

Success comes in varying forms, and over varying periods of time. For Topsail High School’s Payton Little her skills on the basketball court were honed over several years of hard work with some steep learning curves that helped her comprehend just how tough some things are. But when it came to choosing another sport Little found the going a bit more natural – easier one might say. Still the Lady Pirate junior parlayed her dedication and work ethic into another path to success, and that is why she is Post & Voice Topsail High School’s 2017-18 Female Athlete-of-the-

Ashley Dupalavich Year. “I am honored and humbled, to be selected Female Athlete-of-the-Year,” Little said. “I just try to go out and do the best that I can, individually, to help the team so to be recognized for your hard work is really special.” Basketball is Little’s primary sport – a sport the sixfoot post player has layer since her younger years in the Topsail Basketball Association. Payton has been on the Lady Pirates’ varsity since her freshman year when she played in 22 of the team’s 24 games, scoring 58 points and pulling down 87 rebounds while learning the nuances of the high-school game. Little showed marked improvement in her sophomore season, leading the team in scoring with 187 points (7.2 ppg) and 171 rebounds. “She is a great kid to be around, always positive, and she never let situations bother her,” former girls’ basketball Coach Andrew Ellington. I watched her grow every year and watched her gain confidence. She came in as a soft-spoke, gangling freshman, and she has constantly gotten better. There were games where she got beat up and never got the calls but she never complained and kept playing. I couldn’t have ask for a better three years from her.” This past season Little again led the team in points by a wide margin (215) and rebounds (169). After her freshman year she went out for track and became a thrower (shotput and discus), and this past spring she broke the 1999 school shotput record of 34-3 set by Barbara Lee Palmer with a 36-11, and erased Yolanda Reilly’s 2003 mark of 97-5-1/2 in the discus with a throw of 1909-92 feet. “Last year was her first year and I don’t really know why she came out for track but she did and she tried out and she did really well at it so we began to work with her more and more, and she got better and better,” long time Hoggard and Topsail track Coach Wayne Rogers said. “She worked hard and she really progressed a lot from las year to this year. She did well, and she is only going to get better.” While this talented athlete has excelled on the field, she also excels in the classroom. Entering the spring semester the National Honor Society Little held a 4.375 grade-pointaverage in her advancementplacement and honors courses-filled curriculum. Just recently she was named the Region 8 representative for the NCHSAA Student-Athlete Advisory Council, representing Pender, New Hanover, and Onslow counties. Little will head to Indianapolis in July for a week-long NSHS National Leadership Summit. “It’s been an amazing year, and now this honor,” said Little, who said she is anxiously

Payton Little

Anisa Lewis looking forward to her trip to Indianapolis. Payton also said, while the past years have been enjoyable and rewarding, she is looking forward to bigger and –hopefully better – things to come in her senior year. “Coach (Andrew) Ellington resigned after last season and we are getting a new coach, and I am looking forward to that,” Little said. “We have eight girls coming back and I feel we are going to have a really, really good season. I am also looking forward to breaking the school records again in the shot put, where I really hope to go over 40 feet, and the discus. I’m excited about what lies ahead, and I know I just have to keep focused and continue to work hard, both athletically and academically, and everything will turn out fine.”

Lewis named Titan female athlete of the year

The Heide Trask Lady Titan basketball team came into the 2017 season riding a 51-game losing streak. The team had not won a basketball game since February 28, 2014. However, the 2017 version of the Lady Titans had a secret weapon. Freshman Anisa Lewis had came on board after having a great Middle school career. She showed her worth immediately and on November 29, The Lady Titans broke a losing streak that had reached 53 games with a win over Union. In that game Lewis scored 21 points. From there the Lady Titans won seven games, a stark contrast from the previous two years. That game was a coming out of sorts for the fabulous freshman. The Post & Voice Sports

department is pleased to announce that for the first time in the history of the paper, we have selected a freshman athlete as our Trask female athlete of the year. Miss Lewis quickly went from an unknown quantity to the player that the Lady Titans opposing teams schemed to stop. She faced double teams and box and one defenses but still managed to lead the Titans to seven wins. For the season she averaged 15.4 points along with 4.5 rebounds a game. She scored 25 points twice during the season and had a double-double, with double digit points and rebounds four times during the year. During the spring, Anisa changed venues but did not change her mindset. She entered the high school soccer arena and again blew the competition away. Lewis led a good Lady Titan soccer team in goals scored as well as overall points. The dynamic freshman scored 20 goals for the season, more than the rest of the Lady Titan roster scored combined. She also led the team in assists with seven. The rest of the team logged eight assists combined. She finished the year with 47 total points along with an all-conference selection. There have been a lot of great female athletes in the schools fairly short existence. However, there has never been a freshman athlete to come into the school and put up the numbers that Anisa Lewis has managed to do. Her future is bright as is the future of Trask Lady Titan athletics. The Post-Voice would like to congratulate rising sophomore Anisa Lewis for her fantastic freshman year by naming her the Post & Voice Heide Trask female athlete of the year.

In My Opinion Back in the day a good student athlete played multiple sports. If you were a good football player there was a good chance that you were a good basketball player or baseball player. This day and time a very good football player plays the season and then works the whole off season on his football skills or in the weight room in preparation for football season. Many athletes have become one sport dominant. Travel ball has become the norm for most athletes. In baseball and softball there are many teams in the area. I believe that the travel ball circuit is watered down. Fifteen years ago only the best of the best played travel ball. This day and time any average player with the money to pay the fee can find a team. I think it defeats the purpose. One thing that worries me is fatigue and the injuries that come with it. A very good softball player will play around 25 games during the high school season and then play 15 or more tournaments during the off season. If they play five games in a weekend and 15 tournaments during the offseason, that equates to 75 games in a five or six-month period. If you throw in the practice time along with a four-month high school season you are talking about 10 months of softball. I would venture to say that some may play 11 months out of the year. I know what you’re thinking. They are kids and they should have plenty of energy. That may be so but a 15 or 16-year-old body can wear down. Let’s say you are a catcher. Over a 10-month period you probably squat 100,000 thousand times. I don’t care how strong you are or how good a shape that you are in. Your knees will show the effects of this. The same can go for a

volleyball player or basketball player. Just think how many times a volleyball player jumps. Just think about how many times they hit a volleyball. That can be detrimental to the wrist and elbows not to mention the knees. So the question is how much is too much? As a parent you have some say so about this but athletes can be very persuasive. Most very good athletes are ultracompetitive. They feel like they have to work harder than the next person. They are driven to excel. They refuse to be outworked. How do you slow these people down? One way is to outline a schedule that makes the young athlete take a mandatory period off. Make plans to do things that will keep their minds off of the sport. I know parents that make their child take at least a month off during the off season. That is a great plan unless your child is going to a small 1A school. They may not play basketball during the off season, but they will run track or play baseball. Most coaches encourage their athletes to play other sports in order to stay in shape. I also agree with that. My question was how much is too much? In the case of high school athletics, I don’t know that there is a definitive answer. I guess it depends on the individual. Of course, this is just my opinion.

Post & Voice Top Performers Year in Review: October By Bobby Norris Post & Voice Sports Writer The second full month of the fall sports season brought a lot of good action. Here’s what we had going on. Week 1. The Pender football team won twice in week one, finishing off Union in a game postponed before thrashing Lejuene. Standout Latrell Brown ran all over both the Spartans and Devil Pups. He finished the Union game with 256 yards. He then rushed for 153 yards in just over a quarter of play in the win over Lejuene. He had a total of 409 yards in the two games while scoring six touchdowns. He has eclipsed the 1000-yard mark for the season. The Topsail Pirate soccer team remained undefeated after beating South Brunswick twice along with West Brunswick. Robert Vasquez scored five goals on the week while Blake Culig scored four. Week 2. The area high schools were racing toward the playoffs. The Topsail volleyball team defeated North Brunswick behind the play of Gia Marinelli and Rena Marrotta. The Pender volleyball team won twice behind the play of their setting twosome of Caroline Peterson and Ashley Dupalavich. The pair had a combined 16 assists in the Patriots win over East Carteret. The team raised 992 dollars at their annual pink out game. The Trask volleyball team continued its great season

with a win. Emily Oyler led the Titans to a conference win over Lejeune while Jordan Sholar had 17 assists. Libby Smith had six kills and five aces. The Trask football team slammed Lejeune behind the play of junior QB Jacob Johnson. The young man had a career high 153 yards rushing in the win. The Trask soccer team beat Pender 10-4 to earn a sweep in the season series. Sebastian Bautista scored three goals to lead the Titans. Week 3. Trask quarterback Jacob Johnson had a great game in week three. He rushed for 247 yards and scored four touchdowns in the win over East Carteret. The Topsail tennis team had four players earn bids to the 3A individual tournament. Caroline Harris and Kylee Edwards each earned bids in the singles side of things while Kasey Pfaff and Grace Martorelli earned bids in the doubles. The Trask soccer team beat Lejeune 11-2 on senior day at Titan Town. Marquis Anthony led six players in the scoring column with three goals. Sebastian Bautista, Bryen Woody and Will Andrews each scored twice. The Pender football team defeated Dixon. Latrell Brown rushed for 160 yards.

Athletic careers come to a close for several talented Topsail athletes By Lee Wagner Post & Voice Sports Writer It is always a joyous time when standout athletes at the high-school level gather with friends and families in Media Centers around the country to celebrate when they sign National Letters-of-Intent to continue, not only their education, but their athletic careers in their respective sport at the collegiate level. But the truth is there are many, many more athletes who do not get to perform on a national stage after they leave the friendly confines of high school. For most, if not all, years of hard work and dedicated efforts to improve and reach the pinnacle of their sport will now see them fall into the intra-mural – or club sports’ – level. So, for those athletes it becomes more a time of reflection on their past achievements, as well as facing the reality that the curtain is falling on their athletic careers. Rachel Kapiko, who will attend UNC-Chapel Hill and who is enrolled in the Bio Pre-med curriculum, was a four-year member of the varsity basketball team and a three-year varsity volleyball player who will graduate with a 5.0 GPA, and who also survived a devastating auto accident at the beginning of her junior year. “For me, personally, it’s definitely bittersweet,” Kapiko said. “I hope to play club basketball in college where you play other schools, so the competitor in me is not

done. But I will definitely miss playing with my friends and coaches. But I am looking forward to starting a new chapter and making new friends and having new teammates and coaches, and being able to concentrate on school, and not having a set athletic routine. “Playing at the college level is not what I wanted to do, at all. Leaving high school athletics behind is tough, and I will miss it. Playing volleyball and basketball have been a huge part of my life. My accident and missing a lot of my junior season in volleyball definitely propelled me into wanting to become a better athlete, and the desire to get back with my teammates and friends was huge in motivating me to come back from the injuries. “The girls on both team are some of my best friends, and Carmen (Pyrtle) is my best friend and we have played together since were five years old, so I will definitely miss them but I know many of them will be friends for life. Bittersweet in that I have to say goodbye to the last four wonderful and exciting years, but at the same time excited to getting ready to take the next steps in my life.” Jacob Floyd, the varsity starting quarterback since midway through his freshman year through his senior year as well as a two-year varsity basketball player, will attend UNC-Wilmington majoring in Business. “I am very thankful for the opportunities I had to play

four years but I am a little upset I wasn’t given that college attention,” Floyd said. I definitely want to play club sports and maybe even try to walk on to the basketball team. “Record-wise football was a little disappointing and it’s possible colleges looked at the record and took that into account. Then in my senior year I had a shoulder injury that limited my throwing motion, so all of it comes into consideration. Samantha Greco originally hailed from New York where her father was a lacrosse player, which drew to the sport. She will attend UNC-Charlotte to major in Nursing as a prelude to become a New-Natal or deliverroom nurse. “Once I got into lacrosse I loved it, and it has taught me a lot,” said Greco, a fouryear varsity performer who tallied nine goals last season while helping grow the fledgling Lady Pirate program from a 5-8 team in her freshman year to a 10-win team her senior year (35-25 in her four years).” I’m am going to miss it but looking back it has been an amazing experience. I made friends I will have my entire life, and had people like Coach (Courtney) Burghardt help me grow, not only am a lacrosse player, but as the person I am today. “Looking back it was all worth it,” Greco said. “The biggest thing for me was the relationships you build with people that you probably would have never built doing anything else, people that

goals from Sam Bell (2) and Hiatt Ellis. Jorge Lopez had eight saves in the match. Seniors Richie Tarter, Trevor Coston, and Ethan Borkowski scored goals in a 3-0 win over West Brunswick. The Trask football team slammed Dixon. Jacob Johnson rushed for 137 yards and four touchdowns to lead the onslaught.

Caroline Harris finished fourth in the 3A individual tennis meet. The Topsail girls’ crosscountry team became the first 3A cross-country team in the history of the split conference to capture the Mid-Eastern 3A/4A Conference championship. The Pirates did it with four underclassmen in their top five.

cared for you and were with you along the way. Those relationships will last a lifetime. I never really thought about playing in college just because I knew I wanted to go into the medical field, and it’s a hard curriculum,” Greco said. “I will miss it but I am definitely looking forward to the next phase of my life.” Sam Hackett, who will attend UNC-Chapel Hill and major in Business for an eventual career in sports’ management, was a four-year varsity soccer player at Topsail. “It’s not like leaving high school is going to be the end of soccer for me,” said Hackett, who ended his four-year varsity soccer career with 11 goals and eight assists. “Even though I won’t have high-school soccer anymore I will still play soccer at the club level or however I can. I think the important aspect for anyone who played highschool sports is finding ways to play after high school.” Hackett said his love of the sport and the hard work that went into becoming a varsity contributor was definitely work the effort. “Any hard work is worthwhile,” Hackett said. “As long as you get something out of it and enjoy the process, which I did. Honestly I had goals, one being to win a state championship, but as long as you set and work toward a goal it is worthwhile. It takes a lot of time to perfect your craft but it is time well spent. Playing sports provides you with a lot of life’s lessons.”

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

Area anglers beating the drum By Bobby Norris Post & Voice Fishing Fanatic The area anglers are raving about the red drum bite. They are showing up in the surf as well as in the backwater creeks and such. The anglers I have talked to are fishing with live baits. The Spanish are biting near the beach. The pluggers are lining the rails of the area piers throwing gotcha plugs while the boaters are trolling just off the beach. Clark spoons behind planers will work here. The Spanish bite will get better when the water clears up. Sea mullet have been caught in the surf as well. Shrimp will work here as well as cut baits. The flounder bite is sporadic right now. As the water clears up the fishing will get better. Mud minnows presented well will work. The recent rains have wreaked havoc on the fresh water fishing. However, the weather the last week or so will help this out. Remember, as it gets hotter, late in the evening and early in the morning is the time to fish. This weeks fishing tip Red drum fishing is one

of the most exciting types of fishing in the inland waters such as marshes and creeks. I have caught reds in the surf as well as in the creeks off of the waterways of Topsail. Redfish caught inshore are generally smaller than those caught offshore, and often are caught in shallower water as well. Light tackle or medium type of tackle will work for these guys. A Carolina rig will work here. Reds don’t have teeth, but they do hang around structures and such, so be careful not to lose your tackle along with a good fish. Other fish with sharp chompers such as Spanish and blues will take your offering. Trolling is my preferred type of red fishing. Just remember, trolling puts a little more pressure on your rod and reel. I like to use hand lines. I run one planer a little deeper than the other. Some say it is the lazy mans way of trolling. It fits me well. Finally, after I catch a few reds, it is time to cook them. I prefer wrapping them in aluminum foil with butter and lemon sauce and cooking them on the grill.

It was well known that she was a very good athlete with a strong will to win. She entered Titan Town with a bang. Miss Oyler accomplished many things at Trask. She was named to two all-county volleyball teams as well as wining all conference honors. She became a very good leader on both the volleyball court as well as the soccer field. Emily Oyler is much more than an athlete. She is a good student with great morals. She has shown a great work ethic while at Trask. She has played through injuries and never wavered. Emily is now a high school graduate of Heide Trask High School. She will move on to the next step in her life. There is no doubt that Emily Oyler leaves Trask a success.

Pyrtle a Pirate mainstay for four years By Bobby Norris Post & Voice Sports Writer Topsail High school has turned out some very good student-athletes over the years. In particular, the Lady Pirate sports program has had some greats. One of the athletes that made a splash on the basketball court as well as on the soccer field over the years is recent graduate Carmen Pyrtle. Miss Pyrtle is one of those basketball players that the statistics can’t describe. She is a point guard with the ability to shoot, pass and defend. She has the heart of a lioness and asks no quarter, nor does she give any. Carmen made a personal decision not to play soccer this year. With that being said, she leaves Topsail High school as one of the best female soccer players to ever don a Pirate uniform. Carmen Pyrtle leaves Topsail High school as a winner. She has been a top-notch student-athlete for four years.

Brown leaves Pender as one of the great ones By Bobby Norris Post & Voice Sports Writer When Latrell Brown came onto the scene at Pender High school he had one of the best backs in the area ahead of him in Justin Hooper. Latrell still made his presence known. When Hooper graduated there was some that said Brown would falter. All the standout football player did was lead the area in rushing and provide the Patriots with a two-way player. Then The stellar studentathlete moved onto the basketball court where he also had a great year. He then ended his high school career with a state title as part of the 4x100 relay team that won the state championship. If there is any question as to if recent Pender High school graduate Latrell Brown is one of the great ones, just read the record books. It will show you that Latrell Brown indeed leaves Pender as one of the great ones.

Pender-Topsail Post & Voice, Thursday, June 14, 2018, Page 9A

Bill Howard Outdoors By Bill Howard Post & Voice Columnist There is something happening in Wyoming that is important to the hunting world. And I am having a hard time deciding the right and wrong of it. You see, the United States government has relinquished control of the grizzly bear. At one time, the great bruin was down to as low as 136 in the three states surrounding Yellowstone National Park. Much like the debates with conservation efforts regarding wolves after the federal government deemed the numbers sufficient for state control, the grizzly is now the center of attention between the hunting and antihunting communities. But this one feels different. In past columns, you can research and see that I invariably trust the wildlife biologists. If they determine a species is of sufficient numbers that hunting becomes a viable way to manage the animals’ growth, then so-be-it. I often try to find differing points of view in order to make determinations of my own opinions otherwise. In this day of one-sided reporting, it is important to do so, and fortunately I had a habit of researching a tad further than one article long before fake news was considered a thing. This is why I run into a problem upon this subject. Story after story, column after column, I find people dead set against the coming hunt of grizzlies this fall in Wyoming. To go ahead and put it all out there, Wyoming is allowing 22 to be taken, Idaho is offering only a single permit, and Montana decided to decline from hunting the bruin this year. I would expect a story appearing from National Geographic, Sierra Club, or Wildlife Conservation Society to lean towards anti-hunting and complete protection of the species. I don’t disregard their arguments simply because I am a hunter and believe hunting to be a viable means of conservation. Even when the term ‘trophy hunt’ dominates the beginning of the article, I will try to

pick out the real concerns and leave the phrases and remarks that tend to get people to side a certain way alone. People are as split and passionate about hunting versus animals right to live as they are about politics. Yes, I understand that. This is where I take issue with the grizzly hunt. There are many renowned hunters and outdoorsmen, that live in those states, that believe this is the wrong thing to do. To understand, we may need to look at how this whole game is played. Wildlife biologists determine if and how many of a species may be taken to keep a sustainable population without overpopulation. They have to factor in information other than just the numbers that may be killed through hunting though. Natural deaths, death by poaching, death by automobile, and even a certain number of the species that may expand to other areas are all ways the population may decline. So in short, the number is how many are replenished each year compared to how many simply go away. Wyoming determined, in all likelihood with the neighboring states of Montana and Idaho, that they could allow 22 this year to be taken. Generally, the number determined then is weighed further. This time with monies. How much can a state’s agency make through the sell of hunting licenses, or even applications for a draw, as well as tax dollars from people coming into the state for the hunt, and how can those monies work towards either that species protection and conservation, or another species protection and conservation. Pretty much, those two factors are the major ones that runs our current conservation efforts. With the grizzlies, it is different. Just as we all have to look at how we say things now due to political correctness (remember the aforementioned passion statement), we also have to look at whether something is truly necessary in a social or political sense. The most the state would make due to license sales for the coming grizzly hunt is $132000, and that is if every license is granted to an outof-state hunter. While $132k is no drop in the bucket, realistically, it would do very little towards helping in enforcement of grizzlies or other species conservation efforts. However, one high profile well reported kill could cause irreparable harm to the hunting community as a whole.

Think Cecil the Lion times ten. And with a generation that is less and less engaged in hunting and fishing it would not take a lot to turn away a high percentage from the activity. Maybe, just maybe, even though the numbers may support it, a grizzly hunting season in the greater area around Yellowstone and Grand Teton is not the ideal means currently. (Note: hunting will not be allowed in the two national parks, but can be done in ar-

eas around the parks in the national forest areas. –Bill Howard is a lifelong North Carolina resident and hunter.

NOTICE OF ADVERTISEMENT OF TAX LIENS ON REAL PROPERTY TOWN OF TOPSAIL BEACH North Carolina General Statutes require local tax collectors to advertise annually all current year unpaid taxes levied on real estate. We do not wish to embarrass property owners by publishing their names in the newspaper. The advertisement of property liens is a mandatory step in the tax foreclosure process. If you have any questions about the names and properties appearing in this advertisement, or want to contact us about paying your taxes, please call the tax office at (910) 328-5841. Our office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Under the authority vested in me by Section 105-369 of the North Carolina General Statutes and pursuant to an order of theTown of Topsail Beach Board of Commissioners Beach dated, February 7, 2018, I am hereby advertising tax liens for the year 2017 upon the real property described below. The real property parcel subject to the lien, the name of the parcel’s owner as of January 6, 2018 (and/or the names of subsequent owners), and the amount of taxes due are set out below. The amount advertised represents only the principal taxes for tax year 2017 that were unpaid as of June 11, 2018. The actual amount owed by the taxpayer will be increased by all taxes owed for the prior tax years and by all applicable interest, costs, and fees. The omission of prior years’ taxes and interest, costs, and fees from the amount advertised will not constitute a waiver of the taxing unit’s claim for these items. If the taxes remain unpaid, the tax collector will use all available collection remedies to collect the delinquent taxes, including the levy on personal property, the garnishment of wages, the attachment of bank accounts, rents, debts, or other property and the foreclosure and sale of the real property. These collections procedures do not apply to taxpayers subject to pending federal bankruptcy petitions. When a parcel was subdivided after January 1, 2017, and the ownership of one or more of the resulting parcels were transferred, the amount of the tax lien on each parcel, as shown in this advertisement, is the amount of the lien on the original parcel as it existed on January 1, 2017, and is subject to adjustment when the taxes are paid or the lien is foreclosed.

Currie Community Parade planned for June 30 By Lori Kirkpatrick, Post & Voice StaffWriter

Residents of the Currie community will gather June 30 for their annual parade and Independence Day celebration. The parade will line up at 9 a.m. at 1121 Bell Williams Road, with the parade scheduled to roll at 10 a.m. Vendors and activities will be set up at Goose Haven at the residence of Mr. D.C. North. The Dynasty Club, a women’s group in Currie, has collaborated with the community to plan the annual event. A variety of activities are on the agenda for the day, including music, a car and motorcycle show, food, entertainment and a radio DJ. Dynasty Club member Clara Hansley helps to plan the event each year. She said that there will be plenty of food vendors, games and a activities to entertain visitors of all ages. “We are a group of women who help needy people. We give money to people who need it and we give scholarships. We adopt families at Christmas and buy things for them, and we have fundraisers and sell raffle tickets. We stay busy,” said Hansley. Guest performers will entertain with gospel music, and radio DJ Terry Jones will provide some tunes, as well. There will also be an open mic time for others who wish to take the stage. The Grand Marshall of the Parade this year will be Dr. Anthony Newkirk of Atkinson, and the Queen will be Corine Bellamy. Anthony James Newkirk, Ph.D. is a proud native of Atkinson and a graduate of Pender High School’s Class of 1986. He is the son of Retha B. Newkirk of Atkinson and James A. Murphy of Burgaw. Dr. Newkirk is a three-time graduate of North Carolina A&T State University where he obtained a bachelor’s degree in Public Relations (1991), a Master of Science degree in Counseling (1995) and the Doctor of Philosophy Degree (Ph.D.) in Leadership Studies (2013). Newkirk’s most recent career experiences include human resources management and leading organizational initiatives to build and maintain inclusive workplace environments. He currently provides consultation to organizations whose goals are to foster an inclusive workplace environment. He works to leverage people’s differences while maximizing team effectiveness and individual performance. Hansley explained that the parade was founded by Ebony McIntyre years ago. “She had a vision of a parade to be held around the Fourth of July, and from that day on, we all got together and carried it out,” said Hansley. “It brings a lot of people together to show love for one another and to do things together. It brings all of the people of the community together, and our friends and loved ones come from all over. We have people coming from Florida, Greensboro, Virginia, New York and different places to participate. We just want everyone to come out, be friends and have a good time.” Stages for the event will include two flatbed trailers, and a tent that will seat more than 400 people will be set up on site. 50/50 raffle tickets will be sold for $2 each, or three for $5. There will be face painting and bounce houses for the kids, as well as other games and activities. Prizes will be awarded for various activities. Vendors will be selling hot dogs, chicken, French fries, turkey legs, fried shrimp, lemonade and other refreshments. Following the parade, there will be cook-off at Simpson and Hansley Road. Participants will be cooking up a variety of treats. There will be a display of both old and new cars for visitors to enjoy seeing as well. Local resident Ivy Simpson was also involved in the planning of the event. “I like the 4th of July parade because I enjoy meeting people, and it gets the community together. It gets everyone involved, and that’s what it’s all about – getting everyone together, having fellowship together. That’s how a community grows,” said Simpson. Those interested in vendor or participant applications should contact Clara Hansley at (910) 515-9031.

believer on to his next progression in the new covenant journey of catching souls. The prophet Habakkuk’s analogy that God “make men as the fishes of the sea” continues its theme where God draws men out of sin’s deep, dark and dangerous waters by way of evangelism (Habakkuk 1:14). In accordance with this theme, Jesus called fisherman to be His very first apprentices saying, “Come ye after men, and I will make you to become fishers of men” (Mark 1:18). You might recall how Jesus produced a miracle catch of fish for His disciples even though they had toiled all night and caught nothing. Christ did this to show His disciples they would not be able to catch the souls of men apart from His guidance. The apostle Peter fervently trained for three years how to properly fish for men, but he got discouraged after Jesus was not daily by his side, so he

But the fish gate did the sons of Hassenaah build. Nehemiah 3:3 If you traveled years ago to Jerusalem you would discover a city surrounded by a wall with gate entrances. These gates have been given a variety of names over the centuries. The names of the gates could speak of the different aspects of a believer’s life. One of these gates is called the Fish Gate. The Fish Gate was the closest entrance to the city’s fish market. Fishmongers coming with their prized catch from one of Israel’s two seas would have been familiar with this gate. Some of the fish caught by Peter, John and James would have eventually made their way through this gate; perhaps they even accompanied them at times. This gate, just after the sheep gate, takes the

Gone fishing

went back to fishing for fish. John 21:3, “I’m going out to fish,” Simon Peter told them, and they said, “We’ll go with you.” So they went out and got into the boat, but that night they caught nothing.” Why has Peter not gone out zealously telling everyone that he had seen Israel’s Messiah in His glorious resurrected form? This shows how easily we can get sidetracked from what we really need to be doing for the Kingdom of Heaven, sharing the good news of salvation. Peter never got sidetracked again after Jesus performed the second miraculous catch of fish from the seashore. John 21:6, “He said, “Throw your net on the

Don’t become discouraged just because you haven’t seen any results from your spiritual fishing. Remain faithful to Jesus and He will guide you in your steps. Paul reminds each of us in Romans 1:16, For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile. Don’t be ashamed to go fishing, you just never know the impact you will have for the Kingdom.

responsibility of spreading the Gospel to all the world, and we need to use all at our disposal to accomplish this task. This powerful call of sharing the Gospel is not just for those that call themselves pastors, evangelists or Bible teachers, but for everyone that has been transformed by Jesus. I encourage you to remember this week that you have been called to go fishing for the souls of men. No fish have ever been reeled in if the fisherman stays in the bed. Preparation is required, patience is essential and prayer will always be our guiding force when reaching a dying world with the message of Jesus.

John 21:11, Simon Peter went up and drew the net to land, full of large fish, a hundred and fifty-three; and although there were so many, the net was not torn. The call of evangelism sounded loudly in Peter’s heart once again. Theodore Epp, founding director and speaker of the Back to the Bible broadcasts, stated, God has given believers the
