The ECCCM (Eastern Catawba Cooperative Christian Ministry) 19th annual Benefit Golf Tournament was held May 9th at Glen Oaks Golf Club in Maiden. The ministry, true to the mission of the original founders in 1969, brings together the resources of the Christian community to serve the people in need of crisis assistance, support and education, in response to God’s call. The annual golf tournament raises funds to benefit those in need in the county.
The Captain’s Choice tournament offered prizes in two divisions: Church Division and Open Division. In addition several other prizes and contests associated with the 50th anniversary of the ministry were awarded – hole in one, closest to the pin, longest drive, and a 50/50 raffle.
Church Division winners were from First Baptist Church in Maiden. The winning team included golfers Dewey Grant, Matty McRee, Derek Rogers and Danny Hipps. The Open Division winners were Daniel Strauss, Mitchell McGlamery, Brian Sigmon and Quentin Lail.
Closest to the Pin winner was Danny Abernathy; Longest Drive winner was Mark Mayberry; and the 50th anniversary bonus prize went to Steve Hoyle.

A 2018 survey of almost 3,500 US adults found that 64% at least sometimes get news from a news website or app, and 64% said they watch local TV news. Almost half (47%) of adults get news at least sometimes from a social media site. That exceeds the 41% who read newspapers in print. TV and print actually lost ground from a similar survey conducted in 2016, while digital made advances in preference since then.
