  • Keep Sunset at Sunset at its current site

    To the editor:

    I have been a vendor at Sunset at Sunset for three years now, having the same spot each year. Over the years, I have run into customers throughout town that look forward to seeing me again at the event. This is a town of Sunset Beach event where townspeople go to gather and celebrate the area on a beautiful fall day.

    Vendors rely on customers looking for them in a familiar location. Ingram Planetarium is such a location.

    Please keep Sunset at Sunset at its familiar and successful current location.

  • #Metoo experiences must be validated

    To the editor:

    Women’s #metoo experiences of inappropriate behavior must be validated by everyone, everywhere, before policies can be enacted and enforced. Here is a personal example when I was recently solicited for advice. Keep in mind I am a mother to two daughters.

  • Thank you for supporting Warm Homes, Warm Hearts

    To the editor:

    Part of our mission at Brunswick Electric Membership Corp. is to serve our community. One of the ways we do this is through our heating assistance program, Warm Homes, Warm Hearts. Every year since 2008 our members, board of directors, and employees have generously donated to this campaign, and BEMC always matches each dollar up to $50,000 per year. One hundred percent of those funds go to Warm Homes, Warm Hearts. Together we have raised $831,659 since the program’s beginning to assist our neighbors in need.

  • Civil Air Patrol offers thanks

    To the editor:

    On behalf of the Brunswick County Composite Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol NC 170, I would like to thank all the residents of Brunswick County and those from other areas who contributed to the 2017 Wreaths Across American campaign.

    This national event distributed 1,565,000 wreaths, more than 500 truckloads, to 1,422 locations to be placed on veteran’s graves in all national cemeteries worldwide plus other designated cemeteries Dec. 16, 2017.

  • BFA shares its Christmas story

    To the editor:

    I wanted to let you know Brunswick Family Assistance’s Christmas distribution this year was a huge success! After all was said and done, we helped make Christmas possible for 1,295 low-income children and seniors in Brunswick County this year.

  • Thank you for Pet Education Program support

    To the editor:

  • ‘Me too’ crosses boundaries

    To the editor:

  • Better ways to improve Shallotte roads

    To the editor:

    The Dec. 14 edition shows the Wall Street realignment as a done deal, to start in 2018-20. I haven’t seen how much this will cost, but the Oct. 12 edition said to move the ABC store would cost $1.3 million. To realign Wall Street and Shallotte Avenue would undoubtedly run into the millions as well.

  • What is Christmas?

    To the editor:

    What is Christmas? To many, including me, it is a wonderful time with family to show our love with gifts and love. But that is not all it is. To me, it is the celebration of a gift given to all who would receive it. This gift given by God was given to all his creation to provide a way for them to be forgiven of their sins and to spend eternity with him. People of the Old Testament looked forward in faith using symbolic animal sacrifices to a coming messiah. We look back in faith to God’s birth, sacrificial life and death on the cross for our sins.

  • ‘Me too’ is pro-decency and respect

    To the editor:

    When I first found out about the “me too” discussion, I said to myself, “me too!”

    I was sexually assaulted by a peer at 14. I was sexually harassed by bosses at work. I never said anything about any of these events that shaped my life other than to close friends at the time and really only in passing.
