  • Carolina Shores: No need for a gazebo

    To the editor:

    Just when one thought that the town of Carolina Shores’ elected officials had sunk to a new low of responsibility, they recently made a couple of decisions that lowers that negative bar even further.

    At their February meeting, they discussed firming the specs and entertaining bids for a gazebo costing approximately $13,000-15,000 to be constructed on town hall property. A gazebo? For what practicable purpose?

  • Thanks for help with princess ball

    To the editor:

    Communities in Schools of Brunswick County Inc. (CIS) would like to thank Brunswick County Parks and Recreation for partnering with us for the third annual Little Princess Ball on Feb. 5. We couldn’t have been more pleased with the turnout from the community. More than 160 attended in Southport; 250 in Bolivia (sold out)–that’s more than 400 girls and men coming together to make memories that will last a lifetime. 

  • Doesn’t think port is what is needed

    To the editor:

    Apparently, the debate continues about the “benefits” of the proposed mega-port in Southport with the formation of two new groups supporting the project.

    Yes Port wants a feasibility study costing taxpayers, conservatively, $10 million, on top of the $40 million already spent on this misguided project. The Savannah River project feasibility study has been going on for more than 10 years and is currently at a cost of $40 million.

  • Sign Sunset Beach park petition

    To the editor:

    It is amazing and encouraging so many Sunset Beach residents have come forward to sign and help with our petition in opposition of the town purchasing property for a park. Maybe there is a silent majority that isn’t so silent anymore. 

    If you are interested, call Brian Blaine at 579-4019 or Gene Method at 575-4214.

  • Doesn’t want to pay to park at beach

     To the editor:

    There is no doubt that finding places to park on Sunset Beach, especially on hot summer days, has always been a challenge for those of us who do not actually own or rent a home on the island, and it is no doubt true the new bridge has made it faster for everyone to get on and off the island.

  • Thanks to county’s many caregivers

    To the editor:

    Who takes care of our loved ones when we are unable? Who is with “Mom” in the nursing home, when the door is closed and our backs are turned? Who interacts with her night and day? If Mom gets cranky, feels alone and of no use to society, who offers a warm hand? Who watches her body language, encourages her to eat, and tells her how pretty she looks today?

  • Don’t dissuade public from going to Sunset Beach

    To the editor:

    Now that the Sunset Beach Bridge is bought and paid for by the taxpayers of this community, many Sunset Beach [property] owners want town commissioners to follow the NIMBY (Not In My Backyard) doctrine when addressing the beach parking issue.

  • Is Sunset Beach saying it doesn’t want patrons?

    To the editor:

    Sunset Beach Town Council is sending a message to non-residents they do not need our business. Their planned actions to make it expensive and inconvenient for non-residents to park and visit the beach is sending that message.

    It was not the town that financed the new bridge, but money from state and federal taxpayers. They waited until the new bridge was financed and completed before turning the screws on parking limitations. 

  • Doesn’t support voter identification

    To the editor:

    The principle goal of the League of Women Voters is to encourage citizen participation in our democratic government. The most effective action a citizen can take is to vote. 

    The league is a nonpartisan organization, but when we see a movement to disenfranchise voters, we must take a stand against it. 

    Our state legislators are considering such action.
