Letters

  • Stop blaming others

    To the editor:

    Each week, I look forward with amusement to the letters to the editor section to see which former, disgruntled and bitter town commissioner is going to write a letter to try to discredit someone, and in the process, try to justify their inept and self-serving decisions while they served on their respective boards. 

    And each week, I am not disappointed! 

  • Park would benefit town

    To the editor:

    (In response to last week’s letter: “Find a better use of our money.”)

    What a shame Mr. T. that you have such a narrow vision of what a growing town needs to provide for its residents and guests for now and the future. 

  • Supports Pantano

    To the editor:

    In March, Rep. Mike McIntyre stood with the people of North Carolina in opposition to the government’s takeover of healthcare. At the time, he said, “After we help jump-start our economy, we should again turn our attention to health care reform, but with a clean slate.” 

    Yet, McIntyre has not joined 170 of his fellow House members in signing Discharge Petition No. 11, which would force a vote on the repeal of Obamacare and give us that clean slate. 

  • Educate staff on catches

    To the editor:

    We have been residents of Brunswick County for close to 20 years, and in the last few months we have noticed with interest the Brunswick Catch signs. We thought it a wonderful idea to promote locally caught fish and seafood.

  • Taxpayers paid for this

    To the editor:

    I just received a full-color advertisement from the purveyor of pork and Pelosi’s lapdog, also known as Mike McIntyre. 

    The brochure was mislabeled as “Delivering for Veterans” when in fact it’s nothing more than campaign literature. 

    It’s disgusting to note the brochure is labeled “official business” and was prepared, published and mailed at taxpayer expense.

  • Take care of existing employees

    To the editor:

    Why is it the county can’t give employees any money but we can continue to hire new people? 

    We can’t give raises that were due two years ago to those people who earned it through promotions, merit or dedication to their job. Some of these people have taken on a second position due to lack of help in their department. They took on the added responsibility with no compensation. 

  • Lucky to have Mike McIntyre

    To the editor:

    The 7th District is lucky to have Mike McIntyre. 

    My company in Moore County has been looking at sites in North Carolina to build a new manufacturing plant that will create 40 new jobs. McIntyre’s economic development director, Tony McEwen in Wilmington has been like a hungry bass chasing spinner bait in his efforts to bring our plant to southeastern North Carolina.

  • Sweepstakes should not be banned

    To the editor:

    I am confused on why the state of North Carolina would ban sweepstakes. They not only bring revenue to the cities they are in, but also employment to thousands of individuals. 

    I have frequented these establishments and see they are well maintained and abide all North Carolina state laws. 

  • Let representatives know your thoughts

    To the editor:

    “Across Texas, 60,000 babies of non-citizens get U.S. birthright.” That’s the headline today, soon it will be repeated in every state until natural-born Americans are the minority. 

  • Clarifying some insurance changes

    To the editor:

    Last week, some of Mr. Garrison’s information concerning wind and hail insurance written with the NCIUA was confusing. 

    I am an independent insurance agent and I do not promote one insurance carrier over another.
