Coastal storm brings heavy rain, beach damage By Andy Pettigrew Post & Voice Publisher It wasn’t a hurricane – but it might as well have been. A coastal low pressure system that stalled across the eastern United States brought heavy rain to Pender County and the region last weekend. The system brought devastating rain to South Carolina, causing flooding that many are comparing to Hurricane Floyd’s 1999 hit in eastern

Report on Penderlea expected Oct. 20

North Carolina. The low pressure system combined with Hurricane Joaquin, which was hundreds of miles off the coast, to pump in Atlantic moisture and feed the continuous heavy rain over South Carolina. According to Pender County Emergency Management Director Tom Collins, Pender County had minor flooding and damage from a storm that could have been much worse. Had the heavy rain line that

set up across the middle of South Carolina moved north, Pender County would be under water. “We really dodged the bullet,” Collins said. “The stalled front pulled energy off the Hurricane and the Atlantic. It’s the same thing that happened to us during Floyd. It came within about 50 miles of doing it to us again.” Collins says Pender County experienced minor flooding and beach erosion. The Northeast Cape Fear

River is expected to crest later this week at about two feet above flood stage and begin to fall Saturday. Some flooding is expected in lowlying area of subdivisions along the river. Pender County remains under a declaration of emergency. Collins says that condition will remain until the river flooding is over. Surf City Mayor Zander Guy says town crews had the beaches cleared of debris by late Tuesday.

Storm tough on the beach

By Andy Pettigrew Post & Voice Publisher School officials expect a report on Penderlea School renovations at the next board meeting, scheduled for Oct. 20. Project architects have been reviewing plans for the project and inspecting the existing school building to determine the direction of the project. “At our October meeting we should start getting some feedback as far as the recommendations from the architects on the Penderlea project,” said School Board member Tom Roper. “They had a 60-day window to get back to us and we are getting close to that. We should be hearing from them this month.” Roper says the Penderlea renovation is the one project among the school bond projects that the board is expecting to hear from architects. “We pretty much know what we are doing on the other projects. Penderlea was the question as to how much of the building we can salvage and we are at a crossroads. This will give us the answers as to which direction we take with that project,” Roper said.

Candidates forums planned for Oct. 28,29

Candidates forums for the local municipal elections are planned for Burgaw and the Surf City area. The Burgaw forum will be held at the Depot Oct. 29. The forum for Surf City and Topsail Beach candidates will be Oct. 28 at the Surf City Welcome Center. All candidates are invited to participate in the forums, which will give voters the opportunity to meet and hear the candidates.

A young visitor to the Surf City beach examines debris left Saturday morning by the rough surf. The combination of the supermoon high tide Sept. 27-28 and this weekends high surf from Hurricane Joaquin left Pender beaches damaged.

Operation Stop Arm targets school zones, buses By Andy Pettigrew Post & Voice Publisher North Carolina State Highway Patrol troopers in Pender County will be closely watching school zones and buses the week of Oct. 18-22 during the state-wide Operation Stop Arm. Each day, more than 2,300 drivers in North Carolina violate the state’s school bus stop arm law. On Mar. 18, 2015, a special day of monitoring stop arm violations, 12 were recorded in Pender County. Troopers will be working school zones and other officers will be following the buses. Troopers will be driving marked and unmarked patrol cars during the operation. “We will be monitoring the areas around the different schools to make sure everyone is driving safely and watching the buses in the mornings and afternoons,” said Sgt. Michael Collier. “We will be looking for stop arm violations. We may even have troopers riding buses. We are trying to do some different things to make sure people are getting around safely.” Collier says stop arm violations is not a big problem in Pender County. But all it takes is one violation to injure or kill a child leaving a stopped school bus. “We have seen incidents where children were almost

hit. We don’t need that,” said Collier. School bus drivers give information to Troopers about stop arm violations. The Troopers then investigate the incident, and give give citations for the violation if

“The beach took a hard hit. We are going to have a challenge in trying to restore it, but we will get it done,” said Guy. “We are looking at doing a sand push sometime in the next 30 days. Right now, there is not a lot of sand available on the beach. All of our public accesses are closed and have sustained damage. We have a beach nourishment fund, but we are trying to save that money for our big projects. We have a lot of work to do.

Surf City flood zone meeting From staff reports A public meeting will be held Oct. 27 to present changes to the flood insurance rate maps for the Pender County portion of Surf City. The preliminary maps for the Onslow County portion of Surf City have not been released yet. Surf City is working with FEMA and the state NFIP to expedite the completion of the maps for that area of town. The open house will be from 4-6 p.m. at the Surf City Town Hall in the council room. There will be no formal presentation, but staff will be on hand to answer questions and help determine what changes there are that affect local property. Should the flood zone and or the required base flood elevation change on property, flood insurance premium rates may be effected. The Surf City staff is not qualified to calculate what adjusted premiums might be. Insurance companies that are members of the Topsail Island Chamber of Commerce have been invited to send representatives that may be able to answer questions about rate changes. There is a 90-day appeal period that begins on Oct. 29 and runs until Jan. 26. FEMA will accept appeals during this period from property owners who believe their property is not correctly mapped. For more information, visit the Surf City Community Development Department at 214 North New River Drive Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. until 5 p.m.

Although Hurricane Joaquin was hundreds of miles off the coast, the storm still kicked up strong waves. This is the Surf City Pier about noon on Saturday.

Three-year-old is little hero, helps great-grandfather By Lori Kirkpatrick Post & Voice Staff Writer What began as a typical morning for Al and Rosa Paquette quickly turned into an eventful day. It was Aug. 4 when the couple was babysitting their great-grandson, three-year-old Christopher Jones, as they usually did several times a week. Al and Christopher went outside together, like any other day, to fill the birdfeeders and feed the chickens. Al, who is “Papa” to his great-grandson, reached down to fill the metal can with chicken feed when he began to feel dizzy. “I tried to sit down on the can, which was the closest thing to me at the time, but I fell. I got up and sat on the can again, but apparently I fell on a woodpile that was close by, because I cut my head and ear on it. I tried to call my wife, but she couldn’t hear me. My grandson was watching me the whole time. I don’t remember much after that,” said Paquette. At the age of three, Christopher ran quickly into the house and told his grandma, “Papa fall down. Papa’s on the ground. Come on, Grandma.” Rosa called the rescue squad, and when Pender EMS arrived, they let the concerned little boy sit with his Papa. EMS workers told Christopher that he was a little hero, and asked if he wanted to help his grandpa. They gave him

Three-year-old Christopher Jones keeps a close watch on his great-grandfather as EMS personnel treat his injuries. a towel to hold on Papa’s ear, which was cut as a result of the fall. Paquette was later transported to New Hanover Re gional Medical Center, where he was treated and released the next day. “I couldn’t believe that this three-year-old boy had enough initiative to run in and get his Grandma. There’s no telling how long I might have been there if Christopher hadn’t been with me. I was just so proud of him,” said Paquette. Paquette had served in the

military and worked at Sears for 26 years before he suffered from his first heart attack and had to retire in 1997. He worked part-time at Cape Fear Academy for eight years, and then he had another heart attack. At 74 years old, he has recently recovered from a third. Paquette attributes his dizziness that August day to several things. “I had taken my medicine that morning, but I didn’t eat anything. It was hot that day, and I wasn’t wearing my hat.

I was dehydrated, my blood sugar was low and my blood pressure was high. I am really proud of Christopher, and I am also really proud of the Pender rescue services. They did a really good job,” said Paquette. Christopher loves the time he spends with his greatgrandparents, and the feeling is mutual. Al and Rosa love and enjoy their great-grandson, Christopher, and another great-grandson, Skylar, who also spends time with them. “Christopher and Skylar are three weeks apart in age, and they follow me wherever I go. They want to be with Papa. When Christopher says, ‘Papa, Papa, it’s not dark outside,’ that means it’s time for me to get up and do something with them. We go fishing, I take them up to the woods to put corn out for the deer, and we feed the birds. They are good little fellas. I love them to death,” said Paquette. Not only is Christopher a little hero, but according to Papa, he is also mechanically inclined. “I have a little shop out here behind my house, and I have a creeper like you use to put up under cars to work on them. The other day, he had it under his tricycle. He said he had some loose bolts on his tricycle. He got a pipe wrench, but after trying it, he said it wasn’t big enough,” laughed Paquette.

Welcome to my world

More flood monitors needed It’s a drum we’ve beaten repeatedly, but it’s a tune no one wants to hear – we need more flood monitoring stations in Pender County. True, this most recent combination of storms was nothing compared to some of those we’ve seen in the past ten years, but without the home-made indicators used by the folks at Emergency Management, warnings would have been fewer and farther between with any flood events. Technology has so improved since we last sang this song that the systems are cheaper, more reliable and Flood monitoring sysfar less labor intensive. Yet meteorologists and emergency tems will give weather managers are still reliant on a officials more data, to scant few monitors along two better predict when a rivers whose banks have gone flooding event will occur. from natural flood-dispersing Even a few hours more forests and swamps to residen- of lead time will help tial developments. emergency managers reFlood measuring stations spond, rather than react, need to be discussed during when roads close and periods of dry weather—say, people need help getting mid-spring, when the county out of their homes. is nailing down its budget requirements before the end of the fiscal year. We have outstanding emergency service in Pender, from the newest volunteer to the professionals in the management office, but their jobs are hindered somewhat without the proper tools – and information is one of the most important tools of all. Flood monitoring systems will give weather officials more data, to better predict when a flooding event will occur. Even a few hours more of lead time will help emergency managers respond, rather than react, when roads close and people need help getting out of their homes. We experienced a near-miss with the double-punch of Hurricane Joaquin and the torrential rain system that has caused such heartache in South Carolina. Perhaps this time when the waters in the Black and Northeast have fallen, elected officials won’t forget about the difference a few hours can make in saving lives and property. While we’re on the subject of flooding, it makes no sense to drive on a wet road like it’s a dry highway. Even a few inches of water can quickly push a small car off the roadway, and a foot or more can kill an engine, move a large vehicle and create a life-threatening situation, no matter how experienced the driver. Hydroplaning on thin layers of water on highways is a problem regardless of how much rain falls. Like the state’s highway department safety motto says – slow down, turn around, and don’t drown.

Pender Stories

JW Phillips; the man on the corner

Bill Messer J W Phipps is usually out on Saturdays, during lawnmower season, offering his overhauled mowers for sale, at the Surf City intersection of US 17 and NC 210, just around the corner. He’s quite a popular fixture, and people often honk and wave as they go past. “It’s ‘JW’�, as he introduced himself, “initials only. I’m originally from Myrtle Beach, SC, but I went in the military in North Carolina and it claims me (as) home.� I saw the patches on his cap and asked about his military service, and he pointed to them proudly. “Army Airborne. I jumped for twenty years. I did it for the money back in those days. I retired from the military in 1977, Ft. Bragg, NC. I had two sisters that lived in Wilmington. Both of them’s dead and gone. There’s nobody left but me now. I been livin’ at Watt’s Landin’ down here for the last 33 years.� “How did you get into the

lawnmower business?� “I do it as a hobby. It’s somethin’ I been doin’ for the last thirty years. People come by and I do trades, back and forth, and some people see me and come by and drop one off, or say “I got two at the house� and I’ll get the address and go pick ‘em up. Sometimes I buy ‘em offa’ ‘em and sometimes they give ‘em to me. I work on ‘em when I want to, piddle with ‘em, and if it frustrates me, then (motions and makes a whoosh sound) I go back in the house.� “What’s the most common problem, when you got one that won’t run?� “Carburetors. People don’t take care of ‘em, you don’t change the air filter, you don’t change the oil, you get through with it and just push it in the garage. They need a little TLC. They’ll run, but if you abuse ‘em they’re not gonna’ work for you.� He rattled off a list of common abuses, a virtual checklist of my habits. “Most people, they get through mowin’ they just push it inside. If you let it stay outside, on the driveway, until all the grass underneath dries out, it’ll blow out of there next time you start it up.� “I’ve got a Craftsman mower, myself, “ I told him,

The Post & Voice’s quotes of the week “This will give us the answers as to which direction we take with that project,� Pender County School Board member Tom Roper on the expected report from the Penderlea School project architects.

“The beach took a hard hit. We are going to have a challenge in trying to restore it, but we will get it done� Surf City Mayor Zander Guy on the effect of the high tides caused by the supermoon Sept. 27-27 and last weekend’s storm.

Everybody’s child A proud mom contacted me the other day about her son, a high school senior. His picture had been in the paper, and she wanted a copy. I won’t embarrass him here, but I’ve known the young man since he was a little kid. He’s a fine young man, respectful of his elders, and always ready to lend a helping hand. He’s a good athlete, and likes NASCAR, hunting and girls, like any normal 18-year-old. I like to think Buddy Myers would have been the same. Tristen “Buddy� Myers laid down to take a nap on Oct. 5, 2000. His Great-Aunt Donna was tired, as anyone would be dealing with a bustling four-year-old, and she took advantage of a few minutes to rest herself. Ten years later, Donna told me she hardly sleeps anymore. When she woke up, Buddy was gone. His footprints led to the yard, but that’s where the trail ended. Searchers found a favorite toy of his on the trail leading to a neighbor’s horse barn, but that wasn’t unusual – he made the short trek every day. Buddy’s footprints to and from the barn overlapped like the years that have passed since he disappeared. “Disappeared� is such an odd word. Things don’t just magically vanish, especially little boys. They might be out of sight for a while, but they don’t just disappear. I speak from experience, having earned a reputation as a hider when I was Buddy’s age, even eliciting a full-bore neighborhood wide search on at least one occasion I was asleep behind the dining room door (at least I was innocent that time). Things don’t just dematerialize, especially little kids. But Buddy did. I was in bed and nearly asleep when my editor called and wanted me on the scene of the search. Miss Rhonda and I headed to Microwave Tower Road, near Roseboro, as fast as the Oldsmobile would go, which was pretty darn fast, but we had diplomatic immunity. Besides, nobody cared about a speeder that night. Every firefighter, police officer, sheriff ’s deputy, rescue volunteer, hunter and neighbor was on top of the dusty rise near the end of Microwave Tower Road, hollering “Bobby, Bobby� until they found out his name was Buddy.

Jefferson Weaver I have perhaps belabored that Buddy never got a decent break, but that was the case. His mom was a stripper; his dad unknown. His grandmother took him in, then was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Donna and her husband John then stepped up to the plate, pressing the hold button on their dreams of a semi-retirement driving a big rig across the country. His mom later died when she jumped from a moving truck near Fayetteville. Buddy was finally happy when he was with Donna and John, although he did have some episodes that may have indicated pre-natal exposure to drugs. He had his dogs, his neighbor’s horses, and a stable, loving family. He liked sitting in John’s big-rig, pretending to drive. But on that lovely October day, when football was in full swing, the leaves were turning, and almost everyone was preparing for deer season – Buddy walked out the door and disappeared. We searched for that boy for three nights and three days; I say “we,� because like several other reporters, I got too close to the story. I’m fairly sure, come to think of it, that we all did. Volunteers came from a dozen states to help; they lived in tents, ate food brought in by the carload from churches and people who just wanted to help, and fought their way through swamps, clay bogs, Carolina bays and fields. Helicopters

stacked up to use the landing pad at the command center. Volunteers filled in for deputies directing traffic, so the officers could get back on the search parties. Native American trackers found possible footprints, a self-proclaimed Ouija board master with multi-colored hair was asked to get out of the middle of a bridge, and a firefighter found tracks from a three-legged dog (Buddy’s dogs vanished with him, then later returned, clean and unharmed.) But we found nothing. On the evening of the third day, the chief deputy called all the searchers and media together. A cold front was roaring in, and temperatures were dropping fast. Weather conditions were worsening, and there was, officially, very little hope that Buddy was still alive if he was still in the area. It was on the way to that evening’s assembly that I noticed the first of the yellow ribbons. Some of them survived a decade before the last threads frayed in the wind and they themselves disappeared. The “Missing� posters in store windows had mostly long gone, although you can still find them online, and in dusty boxes of files under reporters’ desks. Some things, however, don’t tatter, wear out, and fade away. I met Monica Caison during the search for Buddy, and I make no bones about it—that lady is a hero in my book. She runs the Community United Effort for Missing Persons, commonly called CUE. At the time, it was a little, local non-profit; now Monica gets calls for help from all over the world. She helps families with missing family members; sometimes there are happy endings, but other times it’s more a matter of closure. Having worked with her on several other cases, and gotten a taste of what she deals with, I can’t imagine the voices she hears in her sleep. She’s a stronger person than I am, is all I can say. Miss Rhonda and I have no children of our own, but

There’s nothing like a rainy weekend to dampen my spirits and throw my domestic work ethic into a tailspin. Perhaps I have a touch of Seasonal Affective Disorder, but the recent drop in temperatures and this non-stop precipitation have left me with a persistent frowny face. Intrinsic motivation escapes me as I decide to let laziness reign for a day. What would happen if I decided to forgo any semblance of responsibility for a mere 12 hours? Would my family notice and, more importantly, would they allow it? The following is a play by play of my rainy, irresponsible Saturday. sAM My day begins as I amble down the stairs clad in pajamas and wrapped in a blanket. The family sleeps while I mindlessly view back episodes of Dr. Phil. sAMThe family is starting to stir so I assume the tiniest fetal position I can muster. I pretend to have a sore throat but they’re not buying it. I point to the box of Trix cereal on the counter and cover my head again. I inform the family that I’m not to be disturbed as I’m mentally finalizing my plan for restructuring our family routines. This makes the kids nervous and buys me another hour of peace and quiet. sAMThe mere prospect of rain makes me feel better about my plan to be irresponsible all day. I’m moving ahead with my itinerary of eating cereal until dark, watching seasons two and three of Parks and Recreation, painting my toenails and drawing pictures of unicorns and alpacas. The kids demand food yet again so I point to a box of granola bars. sAMUnfortunately, I see a ray of sunshine. Now I have no excuse to be irresponsible. I do a little rain dance because irresponsibility is starting to feel like a spa experience. sPMDaniel is just standing there staring at me. Why is he staring at me? sP M The family finds me hiding beneath my cloak of irresponsibility that also doubles as a wooly blanket, but apparently it doesn’t make me invisible. Beneath my cloak, I’m doing responsible things to counterbalance my irresponsibility guilt like researching innovative ways to make homemade candles and diagramming my new and improved closet reorganization plan. sPMI can see Daniel’s silhouette through my blanket as he’s standing in front of me. I can almost feel his judgmental eyes boring into my soul. In response, I feign work by randomly tapping the keys on my laptop. If I’m quiet and pretend he’s not there, maybe he’ll forget I’m here on the couch. sPMDaniel’s still looking at me. sPMI’m feeling snuggly and a little dizzy as it’s hard to breathe under my

Out and About

Tammy Proctor Pender County Tourism Director It’s been a very busy month for Pender County Tourism. No two days are the same. The highlight of the month was hosting Fireball Run, an entertainment series with more than 4 million viewers. More thrilling to me, greater than the opportunity to host multi-millionaires and meeting celebrities, was observing the coming together of four towns and two counties. Mayors and council representatives from Holly Ridge, North Topsail Beach, Surf City, and Topsail Beach, were joined with county commissioners from Pender and Onslow, and two school

Business leaders and government leaders served wine, made beds, organized gift bags, and more. The lead organization was the host Greater Topsail Area Chamber of Commerce. The directors from Mt. Olive, Burgaw, and Jacksonville chambers attended Fireball Run to volunteer. The spirit of unity and cooperation was not lost on the directors and producers of Fireball Run, who through the years have witnessed departments within cities unable to work together. For the inside scoop, regarding Fireball Run, read the article in this week’s edition of the Post & Voice. Collaboration continues The NC Blueberry Festival is taking the lead with Pender Tourism, the Burgaw Area Chamber and the Greater Topsail Area Chamber to host the Eastern NC Events and Festivals Consortium. The consortium is comprised of event planners, festival committees, parks and recreation employees, and nonprofit organizations. The consortium meets

quarterly and meets in varying locations. The workshops are free and open to any organizations that plan events, festivals, fundraisers, and sporting events. The Eastern NC Events and Festival Consortium will meet in the Historic Train Depot on Friday, Nov. 6, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Admission is free. Lunch will be provided. Please RSVP to 910-329-1536 by Nov. 2. Hosting this event is a wonderful way to spotlight historic downtown Burgaw. Rain, rain, go away Having never heard of a “Rex Block� before last week, our rain woes have kept the tourism office busy. Then we carefully monitored Hurricane Joaquin. We provided information and updates to the State Tourism office. The state office was prompt and responsive with a travelers’ advisory. We also worked closely with our local emergency management office to stay abreast of weather concerns. Pender County residents can stay in the loop by “Liking� Pender County’s Office of Emergency Management or watching the emergency office website.

Buddy Myers would have been a high school senior this year, just like the boy whose proud mom called me looking for a newspaper. I’d like to think he would have been a star on every team he joined. I’d like to think he’d say yes m’am, and no sir, and hold doors, and go to church every Sunday. But Buddy Myers disappeared, even though little kids don’t just disappear.

Finding a better Medicare drug plan Dear Savvy Senior, I recently received a letter from my Medicare drug plan provider notifying me that they are increasing my co-pays next year. I’d like to look for a better plan but could use some guidance. What’s the easiest way to do this? Need a Change Dear Need, Cost increases and coverage changes are an annual event for many Medicare Part D prescription drug plans. Fortunately, during the open enrollment period (which is Oct. 15 – Dec. 7), you have the ability to shop and compare plans and choose one that better fits your needs and budget. Your new plan will go into effect Jan.1, 2016. Here are some tips that can help with this process. Shop Online If you have Internet access and are comfortable using a computer, you can easily shop for and compare all Medicare drug plans in your area, and enroll in a new plan online. Just go to Medicare’s Plan Finder Tool at medicare.gov/find-a-plan, and type in your ZIP code or your personal information, enter in how you currently receive your Medicare coverage, select the drugs you take and their dosages, and choose the pharmacies you use. You’ll get a cost comparison breakdown for every plan available in your area so you can compare it to your current plan. This tool also provides a five-star rating system that evaluates each plan based could’ve eaten a bowl of ice cream, but I chose a fruit instead. I feel better and retreat to the couch again. sPMThe guilt begins to weigh heavily again so I vacillate between knitting a scarf for a homeless person and rescuing a litter of kittens from the bowels

on past customer service records, and suggests generics or older brand name drugs that can reduce your costs. It’s also important to keep in mind that when you’re comparing drug plans don’t judge a plan strictly by its monthly premium cost. Low-premium plans are often associated with higher prescription co-payments and may end up being more expensive. Look at the “estimated annual drug costsâ€? that shows how much you can expect to pay over a year in total outof-pocket costs – including premiums, deductibles and co-pays. Also, be sure the plan you’re considering covers all of the drugs you take with no restrictions. Most drug plans today place the drugs they cover into price tiers. A drug placed in a higher tier may require you to get prior authorization or try another medication first before you can use it. Need Help? If you need some help choosing a new plan, contact your State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP), which provides free one-on-one Medicare counseling in person or over the phone. They also conduct seminars during the open enrollment period at various locations throughout each state. To find the contact information for your local SHIP visit shiptacenter.org, or of a condemned house. I immediately nix both ideas as they’d require getting dressed and searching for homeless people and feral kittens. That’s too much commitment for a rainy Saturday. sPMDaniel’s in a terrible mood today. I simply

call the eldercare locator at 800-677-1116. Shrinking Donut Hole You also need to know that Medicare’s “donuthole� – the coverage gap in which you must pay outof-pocket for your drugs – continues to shrink. In 2016, you will get a 55 percent discount on brand-name drugs, and the federal subsidy for generic medications will rise to 42 percent. The 2016 coverage gap begins when your total drug cost exceeds $3,310 (that includes your share and the insurer’s share of the costs) and ends when your total out-of-pocket costs reach $4,850. After that, your Part D plan usually covers around 95 percent of your remaining drug costs for the year. Low-Income Assistance Also, be aware that if you’re income is under $17,655 or $23,895 for married couples living together, and your assets are below $13,640 or $27,250 for married couples not counting your home, car or life insurance policy, you may be eligible for the federal Low Income Subsidy known as “Extra Help� that pays Part D premiums, deductibles and copayments. For more information or to apply, call Social Security at 800-7721213 or visit socialsecurity. gov/extrahelp. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior. org. Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of “The Savvy Senior� book.

Sea Turtle Hospital News

American Legion Oratorical Contest

By Karen Sota Sea Turtle Hospital Special to the Post & Voice The 2015 Fireball Run, a live streaming series that raises awareness for missing children blasted through Topsail last week. One of the stops on this fast-paced reality, road-rally type of adventure race from Hartford Conn. to Cocoa Beach Fla. was our hospital. Teams had to complete several turtle-related tasks to get points, and they had to arrive within a two-hour time frame. So from 3-5 p.m. we hosted astronauts, divas, moms-ona-mission, a movie star and time travelers (who arrived in a DeLorean, of course.) And, a queen. After checking in and being assigned and escorted to one of our turtles, our volunteers introduced them to their critter and helped them to carry out their assigned tasks – feeding the turtle and brushing its back. The designated team member manned one of the tools of our trade, a long handled brush, and started scrubbing gently at the carapace. Our turtles love having back scratches as much humans do and will wiggle around so every inch of their shell gets attention. Once the turtle was pronounced clean a turtle popsicle (fish, squid and/or green peppers frozen into a disc) was delivered to the tank and tossed in. The activity had to be documented, and each team’s entourage came with equipment ranging from cell phones to a professional film crew to do so. Nearly no one had seen a live sea turtle before so it was very interesting to watch their expressions when they walked up to a tank and came face-to-face with a hundred pounds of muscle with large, powerful jaws. Even our littlest critters like Dino and Cinco were fascinating to these people who routinely travelled around not only our world but literally out of our world and into space. After completing their task our director Jean Beasley presented them with an adoption certificate for their turtle during one last photo op for documentation. Although Jean was provided with a secret word worth extra points by the Fireball officials, not one of the teams asked her for it. Since she refuses to tell even us what the word was – it will apparently remain a secret. Before teams left for their next destination, they dropped off information on

From the Fireball website: “Every driving team is assigned a child missing from their home of origin, and they are provided 1,000 missing child flyers to distribute along the 2,000 mile journey. This campaign has aided in the recovery of 44 missing children.â€? The flyers have been posted in our hospital where you can scan them during your visit, because you just never know. It was a great day for sea turtles. They got an afternoon full of attention and extra chow. And we thoroughly enjoyed meeting the teams. We hope that, just as they made us more aware of missing children that they will make others they meet aware of our sea turtles and their struggle to survive. Hatching winds up on the island Those nesting mamas have headed out for some much needed rest and relaxation after depositing 69 nests on our beaches this year. We’re getting close to the normal 60-day incubation period for those last few nests laid in early August. Our Topsail Turtle Project volunteers continue to devote their evenings to sitting and protecting the remaining nests, hoping for successful hatches before the cooler nights and any more stormy surf rolls in. Please continue to remove your trash and beach paraphernalia and fill in any holes when you leave for the day. Even a footprint can trap a little one-ounce hatchling trying to make it to the surf.

We’re continually asked when and where a nest will hatch. We don’t know. It’s like trying to predict when a baby will be born. The nest will boil when the turtles are ready. You may sit with our volunteers during the vigil but remember that they are the experts and have the last word on protocol. You can keep up with the latest nest and hatch stats by clicking on the “Nesting Program� tab on our website: www.seaturtlehospital.org. Because we’re not on the beach 24/7, we continue to rely on our locals and visitors to report any sightings or strandings of these critters. Sometimes hatchlings get washed back to the beach if the surf is rough. If you see a hatch (or hatchling), a turtle nesting, in distress, injured or dead please call our Director of Beach Operations Terry Meyer at 910-470-2880, Hospital Director Jean Beasley at 910-470-2800 or the state hotline for stranded, sick and injured turtles at 252-241-7367. The state number picks up 24/7. Check the Facebook page for daily updates on any nesting Fall tour schedule We are now on our fall tour schedule – Thursdays and Saturdays from 1-4 p.m. Our plan is to continue with this schedule through the end of the year, barring any unforeseen issues. We will not be open on Thanksgiving but will open on the Friday after Thanksgiving. Admission is $5 for adults 13 and up, $4 seniors 65 and older and active military with ID. Admission for children 13 years and younger is $3. We

are on the mainland side of Surf City. From Rts. 210/50 turn onto Charlie Medlin Dr. (Shipwreck Point Mini Golf is your landmark) and follow the road (it changes to Tortuga) to the only building back in the woods. Our volunteers are on-hand throughout the building to greet you and answer any questions. We continue our battle with our finicky lift station so we appreciate your continuing support in complying with the disposal of wet wipes and sanitary products per the signs in our restrooms. If our pumps shut down we will have to close the building to the public until the issue can be resolved. At this writing the road (Tortuga) continues to deteriorate. It ranges from teethjarring washboard to cratersized holes. And although it may appear driving close to the edge is a viable option the sand is softer than it looks and the shoulders drop off quickly. I n an effort to avoid an unanticipated off-road experience people have been driving straight through the roundabout trying to escape at least some of the hazards, so watch for traffic where it normally wouldn’t be. The town has not indicated a date for permanent improvement of their road but we hope that it will at least get a good scraping so it’s passable. Our tour schedule continues through December.

Helping veterans apply skills, experience to business Of the 24 million veterans in the U.S., nearly one in 10 is a small business owner and veterans as a whole are 45 percent more likely than those with no military experience to be selfemployed, according to U.S. Census Bureau Data. Experts say that these figures should come as no surprise. “When veterans reenter civilian life, they carry with them the discipline, hard work and strategic thinking acquired and developed during military service. They take pride in these skills and strive to use them during their next phase of life,� says Tim Davis, a veteran and president of The UPS Store, which offers a number of initiatives designed to promote

veteran entrepreneurship. “Veterans are extremely likely to be successful entrepreneurs. Sometimes the challenge is finding that opportunity.� Other programs sponsored by various universities and the U.S. Small Business Administration are offering returning veterans training and mentoring, grants, and access to business development opportunities. From strong leadership skills to focused work ethic to a comfort with procedures, the characteristics exhibited during one’s service in the military can translate well to the world of business, say experts.

Lady Pirates beat South, clinch 3A playoff slot By Lee Wagner Contributing Sports Writer There are times using the term “Big game,” is overused but, when it comes to this volleyball season in the very-evenly matched MidEastern 3A/4A Conference, every game seems to a big game. For the Topsail High School volleyball team, there was no bigger week than this past one when the Lady Pirates faced their two 3A foes – South and West Brunswick – in a dogfight for one of two NCHSAA 3A playoffs spots. To say the Topsail girls came through in a big way would be an understatement. Senior Marlee Marrotta recorded 16 service points, eight aces, and 21 digs, classmate Payton Schoenleber had 10 points, 11 kills, and 13 assists, and senior Madi Ford courageously fought off an ankle sprain suffered Wednesday in practice to add six kills and six blocks as Topsail defeated West Brunswick 3-1 (23-25, 25-22, 25-20, 25-11) at home last Thursday. The win came two days after Topsail (10-6, 6-3) disposed of the Lady Cougars 3-2 (25-21 21-25, 15-25, 25-23, 15-10) in their seventh fivegame match this year. The win put Topsail and West in a 3-1 tie for the top 3A spot out of the conference in the playoff hunt with two potential deciding factors – overall wins (12 vs. 7) and conference record (6-3 vs. 3-6) - weighing heavily in the Lady Pirates favor with

The much-improved Trask Titan volleyball team hosted Wallace-Rose Hill early last week. The Lady Bulldogs have proven to be the best of the 1A participants in the Four County Conference and is sitting in third place in the overall standings, one game behind first place Clinton. The Titans had won three of their last five coming into the game. The Bulldogs won three close sets behind the play of sophomore Lauren Brooks. The scores were 25-22, 25-20 and 26-24. The Lady Titans are currently 3-11 overall and 3-5 in Four County Conference play. They are fourth in the conference standings heading into the second half of the conference slate.

Lady Pirates Madi Ford (13) and Angelica Biele (15) work the net. three conference matches left against New Hanover, Ashley, and Hoggard. For now, though, the Topsail girls can savor surviving a tough week after possibly playing their best overall set of the year against the Lady Trojans (7-7, 3-6). “I think we played well in every game but we gave the first game away with some hitting errors before picking it up every other game, and in that last game Marlee served maybe 10 (12) in a row to end the game,” Topsail Coach Hill Pearsall said. “Our front row is working hard on the blocking, we blocked a lot of balls that didn’t always fall in for

us, but we were touching the balls, and we hit extremely well tonight, keeping almost everything in the court.” One sign of a successful team is that, not only does the designated “top players” come through, but everyone contributes. Topsail enjoyed one of those nights. “Tonight, if Madi had not been able to play, we had somebody (sophomore McKayla Howell up from the junior varsity) Howell was set to step in and fill the gap,” Pearsall said. But everyone, Makenna (Preville), Azia (Anderson), Haley (Woods), Vicky (Elder), and Kaylee (Kyle), stepped up, and Madi

had a gutsy performance. We were working hard on the sideline (when she was off the court) to keep her ankle up. I told her to let me know when it got too bad.” Topsail had the lead in the first game but the Lady Trojans fought back and tied the game at 23-23 before a Topsail unforced error and a kill by West’s Hannah Pugh (13 kills) gave the victory to her team. The second game was tied at 7-7 before the Lady Pirates – with Anderson holding serve – went on a run that produced a 10-7 lead. A five-pointer, with Marrotta serving, opened an

early in the week before traveling to Midway on Thursday. Coach Matt Davis has been battling injuries and has had to shuffle his lineup accordingly. The Lady Pats fell to Clinton 3-1 before dropping a 3-0 match at the hands of the Midway Raiders. The scores of the Clinton match were 25-21, 6-25, 21-25 and 10-25. Caroline Peterson led the Patriots against Clinton with eight assists, five aces and four digs while Lakirah Forney tallied three kills, one ace and three digs. Kam Thompson had six kills and one block. The Patriots traveled to West Brunswick on Monday and played at home on Tuesday. They hosted East Bladen on Tuesday for their fourth annual Pink Out game to raise money to benefit a Pender High student whose mother has breast cancer.

As you go through a long losing streak in any sport people refer to it as “having the monkey on your back.” Through the early part of the 2015 boys’ soccer season the Topsail High School boys have been saddled with that moniker, but not anymore, as they finally garnered their first win of the season last week. The cross-country teams continued to do well, but this time it was Lady Pirate Lucy Marcum’s turn to shine as she led the Lady Pirates to a firstplace team finish by winning the girls’ invitational race at the Bo Run in Winterville a week ago. The Topsail girls’ tennis

team continued to win while the girls’ golf squad endured a week of singing, “Rain, rain, go away,” as both of their meets were drowned out and rescheduled. Cross-country Marcum raced to victory in 21:26.49 in the girls’ Invitational race at the Bo Run on Sept. 26, leading the Lady Pirates to a first-place team score of 32 points, easily outdistancing secondplace Hoggard (65). According to Topsail Coach Wayne Rogers it was just the second time a Lady Pirates’ team finished first in a major invitational, the first coming back in 2010 at the Jungle Run. Topsail’s Maria Ickles (10, 22:39.32) finished in the top 10, while Lady Pirate

The Pender Patriot volleyball team is going through a season that they have not had to endure for many years. The Patriot volleyball team has been one of those programs that has reloaded rather than rebuilt. Now the Patriots are faced with rebuilding from the ground up. Although this may be a daunting task, Coach Matt Davis is up to the challenge. Through all of the challenges of rebuilding a program, Coach Davis has never lost sight of the things that are most important to his school and his kids. Pender High school stated something called the Pink Out game four years ago. The Pink Out idea started when the Patriots had a player on the team whose mother was going through breast cancer. The Patriot team wanted to do something to raise money for the family and in the process raise awareness for a disease that hits home for many families. Let’s look at some statistics concerning breast cancer. About 40,290 women in the U.S. are expected to die in 2015 from breast cancer, though death rates have been decreasing since 1989. Women under 50 have experienced larger decreases.

These decreases are thought to be the result of treatment advances, earlier detection through screening, and increased awareness. About one in eight U.S. women (about 12 percent) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. In 2015, an estimated 231,840 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S., along with 60,290 new cases of non-invasive breast cancer. A woman’s risk of breast cancer approximately doubles if she has a first-degree relative (mother, sister, daughter) who has been diagnosed with breast cancer. Less than 15 percent of women who get breast cancer have a family member diagnosed with it. Although not as prevalent, About 2,350 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in men in 2015. A man’s lifetime risk of breast cancer is about one in 1,000. When a person is diagnosed with breast cancer it not only affects that person, it also affects the family and even the friends of that person. The Pender Patriot volleyball program has been affected by this disease and in turn has worked to help those in need, both financially and by raising awareness. High school athletics is not all about winning and losing. It is about making our young folk prepared for life. The Pender Patriot volleyball program is doing just that. Coach Davis, along with the student body and administration of Pender High school should be applauded for their efforts.

The three county high schools fell victim to the rainy weather. However, there was some soccer action for our Pender County kickers The Trask Titans traveled to Midway to face off with a Raider team that had a similar win-loss record as the Titans. When the dust settled the teams played to a 1-1 tie invoking the shootout rule. The raiders earned the win with a 4-3 advantage in the shootout. Sophomore Fernando Aldama scored in the second half off of an assist by freshman Ricardo Botello to tie the contest at 1-1 after Midway scored in the first half. Senior keeper Blake Joyce had 17 saves in the loss. The Titans second match of the week, a home affair with the second ranked Clinton Dark Horses was postponed due to the rain. The Pender Patriot men’s soccer team dropped a 4-2 conference match with the once beaten and conference leading Union Spartans.

Roberto Vasquez scored a pair of goals and classmate Sam Bell added a goal as the Pirates (1-6-2, 1-4) won their first overall – and MidEastern 3A/4A Conference – match with a 5-3 win over South Brunswick on Tuesday (9/29) in Boiling Spring Lakes. Sophomore Blake Culig and senior Derek Bryant had assists. Bell scored again on Thursday at home against West Brunswick, creating a 1-1 tie at the intermission, but the Trojans knocked one in late in the game and emerged with a 2-1 win over the Pirates in a driving rain. “We dominated for most of the first half but they dominated in the second half,” Topsail Coach Courtney Burghardt said. “We had a hard time keeping possession. We scrambled to score late in the second half but couldn’t capitalize on our chances. It was a disappointing loss coming off of a solid win over South.” Topsail was at home on Tuesday against New Hanover and is back on the road Thursday at Ashley.

Football Preview

After rainy week, teams on the road By Bobby Norris Post & Voice Sports Writer After a week of rain that caused a lot of postponements and cancelations, Pender teams will be back on the hopefully dry fields and on the road this week.

Topsail at Ashley The Topsail Pirate football team has gone from being 3-0 and looking quite impressive to 3-3 notwithstanding the West Brunswick game that was played Monday. The team has shown signs of turning the corner in the tough MidEastern Conference. However, it seems that the team falters in the second half of games. This can be contributed to a lack of quality depth. The Ashley Screaming Eagles are a better football team than they were a year ago. That being said they are still 1-5 on the year and are coming off of a 14-7 loss to 2A North Brunswick. In years past the Screaming Eagles have been blown out several times a year. They have not been blown out of any game and will cause the Pirates problems. Topsail cannot stop the run. They have a big and strong defensive front that seems to play well in the early stages of games. The lack of depth seems to rear its head late. The Pirates offense is led by freshman D.J. Montano. The young running back is a star in the making and could be the difference in this Fri-

Lady Pirates Continued from page 8A 18-12 advantage, and a Woods kill evened the match. The Lady Pirates opened the third game on a 6-0 run and never trailed. The closest West could get was 11-7 before a Schoenleber kill set up game four. The loss seemed to take the wind out of West’s sails and Topsail took advantage with an early six-point surge and a match-ending 12pointer. “We were determined because that game put us in at least a tie for first place in the 3A race, and that meant so

Rivenburg provides muscle for the Titans By Bobby Norris Post & Voice Sports Writer There are many positions on a soccer team each of those positions have their responsibilities. The defensive spots on the field usually get the least amount of recognition. However, there is always one of those players that always draws attention because of their physical nature. For the Trask Titan soccer team that person is Richard Rivenburgh. Mr. Rivenburgh is one of those players that plays at 100 miles an hour for the whole game. He is subject to run over or around his opponent in an attempt to clear the ball from his opponents reach. His style of play is something that a team needs to keep their opponents honest. As the Titan soccer team navigates their way toward a 1A playoff berth look for Richard Rivenburgh to give 110 percent in all 80 minutes of each contest. He is the muscle for the Titan kickers.

day’s game. The Pirates also have a couple of more backs in Drew Gaithers and Grant McCoy that can tote the pigskin. Look for the Topsail runners to find some room to roam against Ashley. If they can open things up for sophomore signal caller Jacob Floyd, the Pirates offense will have a good day. Remember, Topsail Coach Wayne Inman is a run first coach so the Pirates will try and muscle the Screaming Eagles up front. I believe that Floyd is the wild card. Montano will run for 100 plus this week. The Pirate offense will move the football. The question is can the defense slow the Screaming Eagles down enough to get the win?

better. However, all of the discipline in the world will not make up for the lack of depth and experience. The Eagles are well coached and will try and make quick work of the Patriots. Junior Ethan Hines leads the Eagles. He is one of the best backs in the conference and will be a handful for the Pats defense. They will need to corral him and at least limit his yards after contact to have a chance. This is a tough matchup for the Pender defense. The Patriot offense will find things tough this week. Justin Hooper will be the go to guy for the Patriots. Latrell Brown will also need a big game for the Patriots if they are to make a good showing. Patriot quarterback Jake Rawls will be under duress from the time the Eagles leave the locker room. The fact of the matter is that the Pender offensive line will be hard pressed to move the Eagle front. The Patriot line is young and undersized. That is a bad recipe against a team like East Bladen. The Four County Conference is tough on young 1A teams. Hold on Patriot fans, this may be a long night.

Isaac Rexrode (27, 20:57.67), Ken Macvaugh (33rd, 21:34.62), Jacoby Wahler (39th, 22:06.14). There were 50 competitors in the girls’ race and 77 in the boys’ race. Thursday – in the rain – the two teams competed in a conference meet at Poplar Grove against Laney (37), Hoggard (71), and West Brunswick (111). The Topsail

boys won their race (21), and the Topsail girls (55) finished second Laney (22) and ahead of Hoggard (77) and West Brunswick (93). Trent Pyrtle was the individual winner (17:22) for the boys. Dibiase (18:03) was third, Moore (18:21) was fourth, Martinez (18:28) was fifth, and Estrada (18:36) was ninth.

Kersten Parrella (21:41) was fourth, and Marcum (21:52) was fifth for the girls. Topsail ran last Saturday at the Elite Invitational at Ivey Redmon Park in Kernersville, the site of the state championships, and run in the Mid-Eastern Conference championships Thursday – hosted by South Brunswick – at Smithville District Park.

much for us,” Marrotta said. “I know, in my senior year, I want to be in the playoffs. We played like unit and I am so excited to see how we finish the rest of the season. “Madi and Victoria were walls up front and when they are on nothing will get past them, especially in the past few games. Blocking has changed the entire tone of our game. And Makenna and Kaylee stepped right up-. Kaylee did an amazing job, she used to be a hitter and she transitioned to the DS (defensive specialist) line, and she’s doing great.” Against South, Topsail won the first game but dropped the next two. With their backs to

the proverbial wall, the Lady Cardiac Kids rallied behind Schoenleber (23 assists, five kills, 16 digs) in the fourth game to tie the match at 2-2, setting up the always-crucial, 5-point fifth game. Trailing 6-3, Topsail went on a six-point surge to take a 9-3 lead. South rallied and closed to within two at 1210 before a block by Ford (8 kills, 7 blocks, 14 digs) got the serve back. A pair of Ford kills ended the evening. Marrotta (29), Schoenleber (16), Angelica Buele (18), Preville (15), Anderson (5), and Kyle (5) combined for 88 back-line digs. “A lot of what happened tonight was our passing,” Ford

said. “We have a tendency to start of slow but I think once we got into a groove, and realized who the strong servers were, our back-line defense straightened and we played better. “We seem to play better when our backs are to the wall, it definitely gives us a reason to play stronger. It gives us more reason to fight. As far as the blocking, in practice Coach Pearsall had us working on reading the hitter more, reading on the shoulder instead of setting up where the ball was, and that has really helped us.” Topsail was home Tuesday against New Hanover and travels to Ashley Thursday.

The Pender-Topsail Post & Voice

Pender at East Bladen The Pender Patriot football team has to feel like they have been fed to the wolves at this point. They are in the midst of a three week run where they face Clinton, a very good Midway team followed by East Bladen. All three of the teams were 4-1 on the year with East Bladen only losing to Clinton. To make matters worse the Patriots are coming off of short week. The Patriot defense has struggled to stop the run this season. This unit has shown signs of being pretty good but inconsistence has plagued them. Coach Bob Via has worked on the discipline part of things and that has gotten

Performers

By Bobby Norris Post & Voice Sports Writer When the Topsail Pirates volleyball season ended a year ago there were many that wondered if that 2014 team was the end of an era. As most good teams do the Pirates have reloaded once again. Among the new faces in the lineup and on the stat sheet has been senior Haley Woods. The 5-8 outside hitter has stepped in and worked hard to become a very good player for head coach Hill Pearsall. She has made great strides and has been a very steady influence on the court as well as on the sideline. With the Pirates coming down the stretch in the MidEastern Conference and looking for a playoff spot, Haley Woods has been and will remain an important part of Coach Hill’s rotation. There is no doubt that senior Haley Woods has stepped her game up for the Pirates in 2015.

posteditor@post-voice.com Forney’s athletic ability shines this fall at Pender By Bobby Norris Post & Voice Sports Writer The Pender Patriot athletic department has had some great female athletes come through their doors over the years. Among those athletes, many have been multi sport standouts. The latest of those great female athletes is junior Lakirah Forney. Miss Forney made her mark on the track and field team last spring, earning a trip to the North Carolina High School regional and state meets. She has the rare combination of speed and power with her best events being the jumping and sprinting. This summer she made her mark as a volleyball player and has taken the strides she made over the summer into the fall. She has been among the leaders in several stats for the 2015 Patriot volleyball team. When volleyball ends it is a good bet that Miss Forney will be involved in the winter track season. Lakirah Forney is athlete on the rise at Pender.

Bill Howard Outdoors By Bill Howard Post & Voice Columnist The past couple of months I have spent more than my share of time on the road. However, my career has lead me in that direction. Now, being self employed, I have to land jobs and assignments, juggle paperwork and red tape, and find ways to cut expenses to not only increase profits, but also help me price my quotes at a more affordable rate in order to go back to the first part of the circle, which was land jobs. Of course, I am not writing an outdoors column to discuss business and how it works. I only bring this up because of something I did to help cut my costs. A friend of mine shared a

post from Outdoor Life on Tips for Truckbed Camping. You see, I purchased a camper shell for my pickup. It was used, but exactly what I was looking for. Came off an identical truck as mine and has a full door on the back rather than the standard hatch. You remove your tailgate and the shell replaces it. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy tent camping. But one thing is guaranteed to happen if you pitch a tent. Rain. Doesn’t matter if you are in a desert that is in the middle of a four month drought, if you put a tent up and sleep in it, the skies will darken, the thunder will crack, the lightning will flash, and there will be a deluge of water pouring from the heavens. Based on the last week, I would imagine someone has forgotten they left their tent up in fact. The camper shell offers something a little better. I have expanded my functionality and comfort. I have a synthetic straw mat that is folded double and covers the entire bed of the truck. This helps take away those ridges built

in from the manufacturer. On one side I started with a selfinflating foam bed mat which I use when camping with a tent and sleeping bag. I also thought of something else to add to the comfort though. I added a lounge chair cushion that fits perfectly on that one side as well. I arguably sleep better in the back of my truck than in my own bed. I have a stuffed chair placed on the other front corner. It is super comfortable as well, and I have occasionally used it outside beside the truck when stopping. Primarily though, I use it inside the camper. It is short enough to allow me to sit upright without hitting my head on the top. I also have a rectangular basket in which I keep food, eating utensils, paper towels, and butane. In other words, the basket acts as my cupboard inside the truck. As you can guess with the butane, it is the fuel for a single burner stove that is the same size as the basket so they can be stacked. When I do cook, and on my trips I very seldom buy food or drink on the road so it is

every meal, I have to have somewhere to put my hot items. I keep a small bamboo cutting board that acts as a tray in these instances. I can either sit the board down on the inside of the bed and eat standing, or I can sit in my stuffed chair and sit the board in my lap. I also pack two gallons of water in milk jugs which I freeze prior. This helps keep the cold things cold while in the cooler, and as the ice melts, provides me with more water for things such as brushing my teeth and cleaning my cooking stuff. I also have room for such things as my rods and tackle, bow and arrows, and camera equipment. Of course, when I am stopped I have to keep the camper locked to keep the honest people honest. At night, I can move those items to the cab of the truck and lock the doors. You know the saying goes, ‘home is where you make it’. Might as well make it as comfortable as possible while you are at it. Old bodies like mine tend to recover more slowly

I’ve been around the world, and in every state in the United States. I joined up in Durham, NC, and they trained me at Ft. Jackson, in Columbia, SC, and we lived in pup tents, not the old WWII barracks. After I graduated from basic training, I went to advanced infantry, on ‘the hill’ they called it, at Ft.

Pender Democrats to meet Oct. 13 in Hampstead By Steve Unger Special to the Post & Voice

The Executive Board of the Pender County Democratic Party will hold its monthly meeting Oct. 13 at the Pender County Hampstead Annex on U.S. Highway 17, (old Topsail School), beginning at 6:30 p.m. Precinct representatives are specifically invited to this meeting but all Executive Board meetings are also open to all interested Democrats. It will conclude by 8 p.m, an hour prior to the first Democratic presidential debate. Topics include working on plans for additional precinct organization, conducting a forum on Vote Builder, reviewing new state goals for county parties, the new web site and doing follow-up to welcome new voters recently registered in Pender County. New primary dates and candidate recruitment are

metastatic - it had already spread to his liver.” Rivenbark was able to participate in a random study at UNC Chapel Hill Cancer Center, but by the end of April most of his liver was metastasized with melanoma tumors and it had spread to his brain. Doctors advised him that he might live only a few more weeks. Conversation about the possibility of a tournament first came up during what Jo Ann refers to as a window. It was one of several windows of opportunity she had with her husband to discuss his approaching fate and her future apart from the life she had known with him. They talked about his wishes, what his service would be like, and potential charities for donations after he passed. Jo Ann told her husband that she wanted to have a fishing tournament to honor his memory, and the idea developed from there. “This man had such a strong will to live. He was a healthy person, took no medications, he didn’t have high cholesterol or blood pressure problems. He was 62 years old and working every day in construction, building homes, and he had just finished a three-story beach house. He was healthy, had a strong faith and was very humble. I saw him as a man in the prime of his life with me and our grandchildren. He took his fate with the most faith and humility you can tion, back then we called them ‘banana helicopters’,” as he illustrates the shape with an upward swoop of his arm. (likely the Piasecki H-21, the Army workhorse before the Bell UH-1 ‘Huey”) The helicopter come over the parade ground and the guys jumped, and I looked up and said, “That’s about a dumb you-know-what,” and then they said “that’s another $55 more a month,” and I said, “I’m goin’!” “Back then, it was for the money. And it’s like everything, you’re afraid of sumthin’, and once you try it you kinda’ get interested in it.” “Military jumps are ‘static line’ jumps,” he said, lines clipped onto a fixture on the aircraft just before the jump. On exit, the jumper reaches the end of the line and it pulls the parachute open. “What kind of aircraft did you jump from?” I asked. “C-119, C-130, C-141, also the C-5a,” he rattled off and points skyward. “The C-130,

More information on Pender County Democrats may also be found on Facebook at Pender Democratic Campaign. witness - the most I have ever seen. He calmed my storms,” said Jo Ann. Two months after he passed, Jo Ann woke up one morning with thoughts of “Dean’s Dream: Fish for a Cure.” She put her ideas on paper, as she often did for what she calls therapy, and began to brainstorm. She set out to learn about what other people were doing with tournaments and fundraising events, and she decided to register for a class on starting a nonprofit. Jo Ann’s goal is three-fold. She wants to raise funds for melanoma research, to create an awareness of the disease and ways people can protect themselves and their children, and to honor the memory of her husband with something that he really loved. “Our motto has always been, ‘walk by faith.’ I can’t change the past, I can’t control the future and I only have today. I’m not trained in fundraisers and stuff, but I think I’m fulfilling a purpose of some sort. My priorities are different now. My life has changed, but I also have a purpose. Sometimes I don’t know why I’m still here; but I think every day when I wake up, God looks at me and says, ‘I am not finished. There is something here you’ve got to do,’ ” said Jo Ann. Registration for Dean’s Dream is $100 per boat. Entry forms and rules are available at Sears Landing, East Coast Sports and online. For more information, call (910) 443-8359 or visit www.deansdreamfish. org. it’s a easier aircraft to exit. The wind deflectors come out and knock off some of the wind, well, the 141s is got it, too, but you get accustomed to jumpin’ certain aircraft, it’s like a favorite.” “Did you ever have a hard landin’?” I asked, “Injuries?” “Whew,” he whistled, “How many knots you wanna’ see?” “I got one gash, up here on my nose, stupid mistake. I forgot to tighten the chinstrap down, and when I hit the ground, it came down and hit me right across here, and put, I think, six stitches in. And Ft. Bragg has got some of them things we call pine trees, great big old ones, and we get these reserve pilots come in, gettin’ flight time in, and of course they’ll drop you too soon or too late, and you’ll be over there (points to the distance away on one side) instead of over here (points the other way).” Next: Watts Landing

Fireball Run rolled into Surf City By Tammy Proctor Pender County Tourism Director, Special to the Post & Voice

Planning for the arrival of Fireball Run was very similar to preparing for a wedding day. It was more than 19 months ago when the production company called the Greater Topsail Area Chamber of Commerce to inquire about coming to Topsail Island. Fireball Run was different in that there were actually three events – the arrival, the mayors’ reception, and the breakfast and departure. While they were here they participated in “challenges�. Those challenges included visits to the Missiles and More Museum, the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center, surfing with the Surf City Surf School, yoga on paddle boards with Ohana Paddle Board Sports, and shooting balloons on The Raven from the Belle of Topsail. Executive Producer J Sanchez said this was the first town in which they arrived and everything they needed was in place – the staging, the volunteers, and the red carpet. There were so many moving parts to hosting Fireball Run. The core planning committee, the accommodations committee, and the mayors’ reception considered every detail. We knew this was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to welcome guests who will spotlight the area to potential tourists and who bring team members who can invest money in our area. We didn’t plan for a telephone call prior to their arrival. “We have a sick astronaut,� said Sunny Patel, of the production company. “He needs a doctor.� Volunteers sprang into action. Connie James Witmer called her childhood friend, Dr. Seaborn Blair. He met the Indian astronaut, Commander Rakesh Sharma. Dr. Blair cared for his visiting patient. Connie drove them to the Realo Pharmacy for prescriptions then took Commander Sharma to their beach home for rest. His assistant stood crying. All fees were paid by a volunteer. Commander Sharma, in broken English, wanted to know how much

His assistant shook her head. “For three weeks I was told to expect Southern Hospitality,â€? she said. “I didn’t know what Southern Hospitality was. I know what it is now.â€? There was another happy incident. The mayors of Holly Ridge, Surf City, North Topsail Beach and Topsail Beach selected the Friends of the Library at Sneads Ferry and Hampstead branches as the Fireball Run charity. The teams called. “Do you have a bookstore on the island?â€? Yes, it’s called Quarter Moon Books and Gifts. They rushed down and wiped Lori

Fisher out of all children’s books. They also stopped at the Surf City Neighborhood Walmart. Both Friends groups left with bags of books. The philanthropic aspect of Fireball Run is the Race to Recover America’s Missing Children. The director of the Child’s Rescue Network was put into contact with a Surf City man whose son was kidnapped by a spouse and taken out of the country. When the Surf City man told his story, there was not a dry eye in the room. Fireball Run and the Child’s Rescue Network vowed to help this local man. A highlight was the participation of our children. The Topsail High Marching Band

performed in the awful heat of the afternoon as the Fireballers arrived. They brought spark and enthusiasm to the day. As the teams departed on Sept. 30, the Dixon High Band performed and the Dixon Special Olympians waved the starting flag. It was a thrill knowing the students were recorded and may appear in the final cut of the program. In the meantime, the bands and events can be viewed online at www.fireballrun.com. Visit them website and click on “Go.� The archived footage is under the playlist. There are dozens of stories that evolved from Fireball Run’s visit. Talk to anyone who volunteered. They will tell you about meeting a soaking wet American astronaut Jon McBride. Barefoot, dripping wet, Capt. McBride had been surfing with the Surf City Surf School. “I stood on the board,� he boasted. Then there was Chris McDonald, who posed with admiring fans – always hugging, always friendly. Wes Hunter and his band performed during the Mayors’ Reception. The TimeCar team member, Doc Nigh, climbed on stage and played bass with the band. It was classic fun. There are many more stories that could be shared. Sanchez said Topsail Island “raised the bar� on hosting. We demonstrated Southern Hospitality – something the Fireballers won’t forget. The production crew will head home this week with hours of recorded footage. They will edit and create Season 9. When they are finished, we will have one episode in the series that will spotlight our region as a vacation destination and a progressive site for economic development. When the CD is released in June 2016, we will have a local party and sneak preview – perhaps a movie in the park! Thank you to all the volunteers and the businesses that sponsored Fireball Run.

We declare to you what we have seen and heard so that you also may have Fellowship with us, and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son, Jesus Christ. We are writing these things so our joy may be complete. 1 John 1: 3-4 “Laughter,� C. S. Lewis said, “is the serious business of heaven.� It may seem an odd saying since the Bible is short on laughter, but that may be because the writers were more focused on the seriousness of the matter at hand than the absolute joy of its outcome.

The writer of 1 John is quite right when he says that to receive the testimony of the good news of the gospel to believe that it is true is complete joy or as we might say‌ – the completion of joy, God’s joy and ours. For you see, where the Bible is short on humor, it is big on the subject of joy. The Psalms alone sing it from beginning to end. I will praise you with my whole heart. I will tell of your wonders. I will rejoice in You. (Psalm 9) You have made known to me the path of life. You will fill me with joy in your presence (Psalm 16) The heavens are declaring the glory of God. (Psalm 19)

NEW BEGINNING CHURCH

Sunday Service 10:30 a.m.

The point is that the Bible is full of joy and for one simple reason â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the good news is Good News, great news, glorious news, joyful news. The writer of 1 John got it. He understood. He knew deep down that the story to which hewitnesses, which he saw and experienced was a story that brought joy to the heart of every believer and so by hearing it, we also enter this joy. Trusting, hoping, believing completes the cosmic joy of heaven and we become recipients of that joy. So let us all set this morning a spiritual resolution. Let us dedicate ourselves to entering the joy of the Lord and the Good news God has sent us in Jesus Christ. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s begin here and now a season of joyful living. Let us find new joy in God and His love, in our faith and Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s providence, in Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s holy community here and everywhere and the mission God has given us. Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s blessings flow like the sea and so our joy is like the rain, it comes generously and fills the whole earth and our hearts.

I will sing and make music to the Lord . (Psalm 27) The Lord is my strength and my shieldâ&#x20AC;Ś.My heart leaps for joy. (Psalm 28) Weeping may last for a night, but joy comes in the morning. (Psalm 30) You have removed my sackcloth and clothed me in joy. (Psalm 30) Sing joyfully to the Lord you righteous. (Psalm 33) And it goes on and on. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just the first 20 percent of the Psalter. Then there are the writings of Paul of course. Rejoice in the Lord always, again I say rejoice! Jesus spreads joy at least among the common people wherever he goes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; joy, love, praise, blessing, gladness â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and all those related words fill the Scriptures. We are to sing, dance, praise, magnify, exalt, bless and glorify God. Just to mention a few responses, as the Medical Mission sisters sang so any years ago â&#x20AC;&#x153;Joy is like the rainâ&#x20AC;? at least when it comes to the Bible anyway. It falls and flows and fills everywhere and everyone.
