  • A random act of kindness

    To the editor:

    On March 28, my son and I were having lunch at Duffer’s restaurant in Shallotte. I want to tell you a story of kindness and graciousness. A sweet and charming lady and the gentleman who was with her paid for our lunch. They had no reason to do this, only that I had given her a compliment about how nice and refreshed she looked.

    She told me she was a retired teacher and even though I do not know her name and she may never see this, I wanted the people of Brunswick County to know we still have lovely people in our county.

  • Thank you for supporting Sea Notes society

    To the editor:

    As president of the Sea Notes Choral Society, I have the pleasure of thanking you, our audience, for your support and generosity each concert season. On March 26, 27 and 28 when Sea Notes performed its spring concert at Hatch Auditorium, I again had that privilege.

    Sea Notes begins its summer concert series June 27 and 28 with, “A Salute to America, We the People,” when we become a resident company at Odell Williamson Auditorium.

  • Speak out against bill to kill county coroner’s office

    To the editor:

    The stunt by state Sen. Bill Rabon to abolish the office of coroner is a sad day for Brunswick County.

  • Kudos for sign ordinance enforcement

    To the editor:

    Kudos to Gail Treglia and the town of Carolina Shores for finally handing out a $100 fine to Eric Tryggeseth, owner of Grand Strand Coffee in Carolina Shores, for the signage that appears on U.S. 17, both northbound and southbound, Saturday mornings then disappears Monday mornings. He has knowingly been violating an ordinance for years knowing officials did not work on the weekends to fine him for the illegally placed signs.

  • March Madness in politics

    To the editor:

    March Madness is especially enjoyable this year for me — ACC fan for 60 years — because five conference teams have made it to the Sweet Sixteen. It is a “one for all, all for one” attitude in the sports arenas.

  • Saunders deserves some kind of award

    To the editor:

  • Pray for Israel

    To the editor:

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu recently addressed the joint houses of Congress of the United States. This was his third time to give such an address. The only other leader to address the U.S. Congress three times was Sir Winston Churchill. This address coincided with the feast of Purim, which commemorates Queen Esther’s appeal to the king of Persia to save the Jewish people.

  • Prompt response to courthouse damage earns thanks

    To the editor:

    Many of your readers know of the water damage that recently occurred at our Brunswick County Courthouse. I write to publicly thank the many who contributed to our prompt recovery and re-opening.

  • Thanks for starting road to recovery

    To the editor:

  • Second Sunset Beach fire station not free

    To the editor:

    Sunset Beach Town Council wants you to believe the town’s second fire station was free. Sunset Beach taxpayers paid $275,000 for the land, $300,000 for the grant and $225,000 each year to staff the facility (two staff each shift, including employee benefit costs). Moreover, the staff is legally restricted against extinguishing any fires until additional help arrives because of safety regulations. The total cost for this incomplete service is $1.25 million.
