• Be patient with new puppies

    To the editor:

    So, Santa tells me you got a new puppy for Christmas! Well, he also said I should pass along some things to think about.

    The puppy doesn’t speak your language — yet. Remember when you had to learn a foreign language in high school? Well, he is struggling also. Please don’t yell at him. Speak softly and pet him every time he responds the correct way.

  • Thank you for Sea Notes patronage

    To the editor:

  • Act’s passage extends educational assistance

    To the editor:

    The passage of the Every Student Succeeds Act represents a breakthrough. It follows years of debate about the right balance of federal versus local influence in public education. This new legislation will give our local schools more flexibility to decide what works best for our students. It came about because of something we rarely see in Washington these days: bipartisan agreement.

  • Christmas Day is due again

    To the editor:

    On Christmas and every other day

    To God have things to say so I pray

    Thanks for all the love you gave me

    A son who from sin set us free.

    On top of tree there is a single star

    So when wise men came from afar

    To Jesus’ birthplace found their way

    Near Bethlehem heard somebody say.

    In my each happy day, hour and minute

    My life, God and his son are always in it

    Sometime soon when all time does end

    Again to us precious son he shall send.

  • Meaning of Christmas lies in faith

    To the editor:

  • Co-worker may have thwarted more bloodshed

    To the editor:

    In reference to the (New York) Daily News cover headline, “God isn’t fixing this,” on the San Bernardino, Calif., shooting: Consider maybe many lives were spared because the terrorists had plans to murder many more with the bombs and other devices but changed them because of an argument with a Messianic Jewish Christian co-worker.

  • Sunset Beach Town Council could still ignore voters’ wishes

    To the editor:

    Still time for mischief by Sunset Beach Town Council?

    Let’s begin by noting at the December meeting (usually the induction meeting) after both the 2011 and 2013 elections, council discussed and voted on old business before swearing in the newly elected council members.

    The residents of Ocean Isle Beach and surrounding areas appreciate the hard work that goes into putting on this production.
