  • Thanks for help with walk

    To the editor:

    On behalf of the Sarcoma Foundation of America, we would like to thank everyone for their monetary gifts and/or participation in the Second Annual Rae of Hope 5K Run Walk at Ocean Isle Beach on Oct. 30. 

    We had 90 participants in the run walk this year and hope to have even more next year.

  • Why do people run for office?

    To the editor:

    I would give anything to sit down with an honest politician, but the chances of that are about one in a trillion. 

    The only reason most run is for the graft and the millions of dollars in campaign funds they collect. Most have oil stock so they won’t go against the oil companies. 

    Some time ago they tried to stop the TV commercials from being so loud. It was approved. Then the politicians got paid off and it was squashed. 

  • America’s health not its wealth

    To the editor:

    America has a problem: everyone wants her wealth; few consider her health. 

    Many nations, being friends in need, wish her destroyed when the aid is necessarily withdrawn. More and more of her own people “take it all and give nothing back.” 

  • Stand up for the Constitution

    To the editor:

    No, Mr. Obama! We will not ride in the back of the bus being driven by a progressive agenda. 

    Remember the Constitution? I understand it can be a nuisance for the progressive vision. I do not want to go back. We need to go back to the principles of our founders. 

    The road our country is on runs two ways. With hard work, we will be able to stop working for the government and go back to the government listening to us and working for our interests. 

  • Don’t miss out on older workers

    To the editor:

    When workers reach a certain age, do they have an employment expiration date? I think Brunswick County business owners are missing the boat when it comes to hiring qualified employees for their businesses. 

  • New area church welcomes others

    To the editor:

    After five years of continued prayer, work and planning, members of the area’s Grand Strand Byzantine Catholic Fellowship now have a place to call their own. The small but faithful group of regulars come from Brunswick and Horry counties. The new Byzantine Mission is the first in this area and although still a work in progress, it is on South Carolina’s Highway 90. 

  • Where is the grant money now?

    To the editor:

    It is confusing and frustrating. Now [Sunset Beach] councilmen Lou DeVita and Bob Bobinski are hoping for new grant money again. 

    I thought they wanted to buy the land without grant money? Someone better tell them Uncle Sam is broke and to devote their energy to cut the overstaffing and excessive salaries at town hall.

  • Remember the past when you go to vote

    To the editor:

    Voters of Brunswick County, by Wednesday of next week we will have seen another election if the good Lord God Almighty allows. And this election seems to be more national than local.

    However, I want to call your attention to a situation that happened last year in our county, Brunswick County.

  • Election will impact all of us

    To the editor:

    With issues such as redistricting, money in elections, and the economy before us, the outcome of this election, no matter who wins, will impact each of our lives. That is why it is so important for all of us to cast our vote.

  • Keys, rings lost

    To the editor:

    My father works on the docks of Calabash and is captain of the Hurricane shrimper. He was down on the dock about a week ago and his keys fell out of his pocket. He had his mother and father’s wedding rings on his key ring that meant more (to him) than anyone would ever know. 

    He was so heartbroken about it that he has tried and tried to find them. His mother passed away in June, and that was the last thing he had to remember her by.
