• Market situation needs correction

    To the editor:

    The town of Sunset Beach does not appear to have safeguards in place to protect the taxpayers’ interests from being used or abused for profit when town assets are involved.

  • Salvation is more important than alcohol

    To the editor:

    How important was it for people to have their alcohol with their breakfast? I do declare.

    What you all don’t realize that God is not pleased with the way some people think that having fun is so important, and I don’t mean just the alcohol.

    We need to put God first in our lives every day. Get saved. Let Jesus in your life.

    Having your fun from alcohol is not the only thing that can mess you up. Really, Jesus will give you a better quality of fun.

  • Sunset Beach taxpayers have good deal

    To the editor:

    I was there at the initial Sunset Beach Business and Merchants Association meeting when Chris Wilson suggested the Waterfront Market in Sunset Beach as a possible fundraiser for the printing costs of a proposed Sunset Beach Guide. She detailed how it could be done and it was obvious she had already done considerable research. The market was a resounding success.

  • Trump reflects real Americans

    We are bombarded daily by an incestuous elitist leftist press. They babble on about the lies of President Trump when in fact we have been living in a culture of lies that grew to maturity under President Obam’s administration.

    The truth is Trump, whatever his failings, represents the real Americans, the ones who have been doing the heavy lifting for decades and shedding most of the blood to maintain this republic, only to ridiculed by the anointed ones with their half-educated bumper sticker thinking.

    Cheers for President Trump.

  • Market benefits Sunset Beach

    To the editor:

    Your readers do understand that these letters are on the editorial page, right? That means they are the opinion of the writers. OK?

    Some of the recent opinions about the Waterfront Market in Sunset Beach and the four women who manage it differ dramatically from my knowledge, my observations, and, yes, my opinions.

  • Support RAISE Family Caregivers Act

    To the editor:

    Family care giving can be an emotionally, physically and financially demanding role and this is especially true for Alzheimer’s and related dementia caregivers. Across the country, there are more than 15 million Americans providing unpaid care for people with Alzheimer’s or other dementias. In 2016, these caregivers provided an estimated 18.2 billion hours of care valued at more than $230 billion.

  • Taxpayers should not subsidize market

    To the editor:

    Should Sunset Beach taxpayers be subsidizing the Waterfront Market? Sunset Beach taxpayers purchased the land for the Sunset Beach Town Park for $2.1 million and continue to fund the ongoing development of the park. The nonprofit Sunset Beach Business and Merchants Association, beginning in May 2016, opened the waterfront market in our park allowing 60 or more vendors to set up tents or booths to sell their wares every Thursday.

  • Market profits at expense of public

    To the editor:

    Is the much beloved and well-attended Waterfront Market at Sunset Beach Town Park up for sale? Apparently that’s what about 50 people who showed up at the last Sunset Beach Town Council meeting thought. They were there to express their concern that this weekly event in a public park had been “sold” to a for-profit LLC under cover of darkness with no public comment or input whatsoever.

  • Trump raises plenty of concerns

    To the editor:

    We see a lot of back and forth on President Trump, some for, some against. I write today to express concerns not only with his association with Russia, but other matters as well. He says Vladimir Putin is a better leader than President Obama. When in our lifetimes would that statement not be seen as treasonous? Every one of our intelligence sources are 100 percent sure Russia meddled in the election. Trump said there is no proof. Really?

  • Government of the absurd hurts Americans

    To the editor:

    We have all heard of the theater of the absurd. Welcome to the government of the absurd.

    Two of the main arguments Republicans make to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA) are that the individual markets under the ACA are struggling and premiums need to be reduced.

    A Kaiser Family Foundation analysis shows an estimated 34,000 Americans in 47 counties are at risk of not having an insurance provider to select on the ACA exchanges next year.
