  • Supports Russo

    To the editor:
    I’d like to remind Carolina Shores residents there is an election Nov. 8. It may not be a national election, but it is an important election. The way our town is managed depends on who is on the board of commissioners.
    One of the candidates is John Russo, whom I heartily support. He has been a dedicated resident of the Carolina Shores POA subdivision since 1994 and active in many ways that have benefited this community and town.

  • Vote for Cerrato

    To the editor:
    Now is the time for voters in Sunset Beach to move to a representative government by electing candidates who will act upon the will the people. Richard Cerrato is such a man. He has been the voice of the people of Sunset Beach, watching out for our interests.
    We do not need to elect candidates who are clones of the outgoing administration. Mike Williams told me on the phone he does not support referendums, supported the park purchase and the new fire station. Sounds like same old agenda to me...spend, spend, spend.

  • Supports candidates

    To the editor:
    As Sunset Beach voters go to the polls to vote on Nov. 8 to fulfill their civic responsibility, they should consider the following: Two candidates running for office have never voted in this town’s elections.

  • Get to know the candidates

    To the editor:
    As of 2009, there were more than 4,500 political action committees throughout our country. The Carolina Shores Concerned Citizens PAC is an American thing to do. The CCCS offers its support to certain candidates, hoping people will vote for them. You choose whom you wish. That is what democracy is about. For democracy to work, voters should take the time to get to know the candidates. Based on our state constitution, they all qualify to run for the position.

  • Keep things on the right track

    To the editor:
    For the past two years, the commissioners (of Carolina Shores) have all worked together and as a result, we now have a comprehensive road replacement program.
    The Shingletree culvert pipes were replaced by NCDOT at no cost to the town; the UDO is expected to be completed by May 2012; the Calabash Lakes tree replacement was completed; and committees of volunteers from each community were formed.

  • What is a cult?

    To the editor:
    The election season has brought about questions of what is a cult. Christian apologist Alan Gomes says a cult of Christianity is “a group of people, which claiming to be Christian, embraces a particular doctrine system taught by an individual leader, group of leaders, or organization, which (system) denies (either explicitly or implicitly) one or more of the central doctrines of the Christian faith as taught in the 66 books of the Bible.”

  • November is for Lung Cancer Awareness

    To the editor:
    I was diagnosed in 2003 with stage 3B non-small cell lung cancer and underwent radiation and chemo treatments. I had quit smoking more than 10 years prior to diagnosis. I was one of the lucky ones and am in remission. Not many survive lung cancer diagnosed in late stages, 3 and 4.
    The stigma against lung cancer must be stopped. Only 20 percent of people diagnosed with lung cancer are current smokers. Lung cancer receives the least amount of funding for research. The American Cancer Society spends most of its money on smoking cessation.

  • Vote for courage

    To the editor:
    According to the board of elections, Sunset Beach has mayoral candidate Clinton Dunlop registered to vote on Feb. 22 and council candidate Mike Williams registered to vote on March 22.
    I also learned the newly arrived mayoral candidate lives next door to the current mayor and is an avid golfer. Does this familiarity continue to have candidates serve as marionettes for those who are leaving office?

  • Parking fee too much

    To the editor:
    My husband and I attended our first and last N.C. Oyster Festival at Ocean Isle Beach. Please know this has nothing to do with the vendors, because their wares were great. We are upset because of the admission charge, even though we knew and were prepared to pay $5 for adults and $2 for children. We were not aware that we would have to pay $5 for parking, since we weren’t lucky enough to find free parking.

  • Vote for Brennan

    To the editor:
    If you are a resident of The Village at Calabash, a wonderful community within Carolina Shores, and you have a question about just about anything, there is one person to go to first: Bill Brennan.
    You may ask others, but more than likely, they will respond in ways such as, “Have you asked Bill?” or “Bill Brennan is up-to-date on that,” or “Bill really helped me understand what to do,” or “I couldn’t begin to explain it, but Bill has the know-how and he will get the job done.”
