  • Construction timing was bad planning

    To the editor:

    I wonder whose bright idea it was to have road construction on Stanbury Road on Tuesday...Election Day?  Resurfacing on the road to the voting polls was not too bright. I for one was not inconvenienced because we did early voting, but many others were, and I wonder how many just left and didn’t bother?

  • Thanks for help with NAACP event

     To the editor:

    The Freedom Fund dinner was a great success this year with Robert Levitt receiving the Freedom Fund award for his work in Brunswick County to promote business and community affairs so that they will be fair and just for all the citizens of this county.

  • ‘The Difference Between You and Me’

    To the editor:

    The echoes from a distant time,

    remind us of our wrong.

    A song sung simply,

    becomes more than a simply sung song.

    We wrap ourselves in a political sheet,

    right or left, where’s the middle in which we meet?

    We seek the bleak, the incomplete,

    we’re scared of revolution because we’re scared to compete.

    There’s no choice when there is no voice,

    there’s more class in an old VW than a new Rolls Royce.

  • Why go to church?

    To the editor:

    Why go to church? I have heard people say, “I don’t have to go to church. I believe you can be a good Christian without going to church.” My question to that is: “Why would a good Christian not want to go to church?” A better question might be: “How do you keep a good Christian out of church?”

    People in foreign countries walk great distances to go to church, sometimes risking their lives. Totalitarian states have tried for centuries to prevent good Christians from going to church.

  • 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.
