  • Proffering potential cancer-killing remedies

    To the editor:

    People seem to become embarrassed by common-sense suggestions and ideas. Here are a few of mine that I am sure my wife will think are utterly ridiculous.

    Just went to a funeral service for a friend who died of cancer. We also found out another friend has cancer.

  • Homelessness not just about lack of shelter

    To the editor:

    My husband and I recently moved to Brunswick County from New York. As we settled in, a friend asked me if I wanted to attend a meeting of the Brunswick County Homeless Coalition (BCHC). Having done similar work in New York, I was eager to see how I could help here.

  • Pray for peace in Syria, Iraq

    To the editor:

    Let us pray for the people in Syria who are caught up in a terrible, ongoing conflict that has lasted for several years. Islamic State (ISIS) terrorist forces have taken possession of vast areas of this nation that is so often mentioned in the Bible.

    Christian communities that have been in existence since the days of the Apostle Paul have been decimated. Thousands of Christians have been butchered mercilessly by ISIS. The Assad regime that ruled Syria for decades and gave protection to Christians is now riven with violence and revolution.

  • Celebrating Nuclear Science Week, Oct. 19-23

    To the editor:

    Oct. 19-23 is Nuclear Science Week (NSW) and my favorite week of the year. NSW advances education, stimulates participation and generates communication that provides insight and visibility for the achievements of the nuclear sciences.

    I began my career at Brunswick Nuclear Plant (BNP) 15 years ago as a plant operator, and the best part about working for Duke Energy is the encouragement we receive to give back to the community. NSW is a prime time for employees, like me, to do just that.

  • Kindness makes 81st birthday meal special

    To the editor:

    My wife Faye and I went to Chili’s in Shallotte to celebrate her 81st birthday. The women who work there were great. They all clapped their hands and sang “Happy Birthday” to my wife. About that time, two ladies sitting across the aisle from us were leaving, and they both told my wife, “Happy birthday!”

    When we were ready to check out, our waitress told us those two ladies who sat across from us had paid for our meals. I asked her if she knew who they were. She said no, but they ate there often.

  • Brunswick County leaders want to hear from residents

    To the editor:

    Brunswick County is in the process of formulating a new long-term strategic vision for our county’s future, and we need to hear from you.

  • Get respect by giving respect

    To the editor:

    Regarding your editorial in the Sept. 17 edition, “Release of footage would help strengthen our trust,” why you do not also counsel your readers to respect law enforcement officers by complying with police requests?

  • Support early childhood educators

    To the editor:

    For the past four years, Smart Start of Brunswick County has sponsored local child care educators to attend the National Smart Start Conference each spring in Greensboro. It provides professional development for early education leaders and gives participants from around the world the opportunity to access the latest research, learn new skills and share lessons learned.

  • Save our public school system

    To the editor:

  • Thank you for CIS golf tournament

    To the editor:

    Communities In Schools of Brunswick County (CIS) would like to thank, with great appreciation, the Crow Creek Women’s and Men’s Golf Association for hosting the sixth annual Crow Creek Charity Golf Tournament.

    This year’s event was a huge success, with the association raising $24,000 to provide services to the schools in Brunswick County to keep children in school and prepare them for their future.

    Over the past six years, this fundraiser has raised more than $86,000 in support of CIS and the residents of the county.
