  • Big bang doesn’t explain universe’s origin

    To the editor:

    The one main thing the big bang does not explain is the origin of the universe. It is only a story about what supposedly happened afterwards. The only suggestion ever made is self-creation, which is illogical and absurd.

  • Thank you to local firefighters

    To the editor:

    Impressed. Reassured. Grateful. This is how I have felt since watching firefighters grapple with the lightning-induced fire at Mariner’s Wacche condos in Brick Landing on Thursday night, July 24.

  • Keep proper high school colors

    To the editor:

    Contrary to popular belief, black is not the new color for West Brunswick High School. There are only two official school colors: Kelly green and white. I know. I am a retired faculty member who was there the year the school opened, and I know what is on the school charter.

  • Hewett’s story a cautionary tale for youth

    To the editor:

    It seems that everywhere one goes in Brunswick County for the past few days, all you hear is stories about Ronald Hewett. So many people are passing judgment and making statements that have not been confirmed.

  • Where’s the donkey?

    To the editor:

    Where’s the donkey?

    I found Adam in the garden. I found God covering him with skins, but I have yet to find God killing an animal to get those skins. I found Gabriel. I found Michael. I found all manner of angels in both testaments, but I have yet to find one angel having the gender or form of those blonde females and naked babies with wings sitting on our fireplace mantle.

  • Good Samaritans on Sunset Beach

    To the editor:

    My granddaughters and I were at Sunset Beach on Friday, July 18. Coming out of the ocean we saw our belongings neatly stacked on our chairs away from the approaching tide. Thank you so much to the unknown Good Samaritans for saving our things.

  • Community makes CNA Week wonderful

    To the editor:

    Our community made Certified Nursing Week wonderful. CNA week was celebrated in June. The CNAs are not just the backbone of a nursing facility, but also a great addition to any community. The outpouring of donations from local business was amazing.

  • Pruden’s resignation a community loss

    To the editor:

    Thank you for providing me a public forum to express my disappointment in our Brunswick County school board. I met Edward Pruden when he was here to interview for our county’s school superintendent position. That interview coincided with the death of his first cousin’s husband, a member of the church I serve in Shallotte. Being the son of a prominent Baptist pastor, Ed did the right thing and stayed to attend the funeral and support his extended family.

  • Thanks for motorcycle safety support

    To the editor:

    The Motorcycle Safety Awareness Program (M.S.A.P) is taught as part of the curriculum of driver education classes throughout the state of North Carolina. The two-hour presentation provided to Brunswick County Schools is conducted by volunteer members of the local Concerned Bikers Association/ABATE and the Beach House H.O.G. Chapters. The presenters donate their time and material to teach our county’s young drivers how to SHARE (Safe Highways = Respect + Education) the roads with motorcyclists and other vehicles on the road.

  • Bring back military draft

    To the editor:

    Was Bowe Bergdahl a deserter, a coward or a traitor? Maybe any or all, but for sure, he was AWOL in a war zone. A washout for the good of the service after just four weeks in Coast Guard basic training in 2004, why was he in a war zone two years later? He is a poster child for the mistake of ending the draft after Vietnam.
