  • Shelter Challenge

    To the editor:
    I would like to urge every animal lover to accept the Shelter Challenge at www.shelterchallenge.com.
    The next challenge started Jan. 6 and runs for about eight weeks. Simply log on to the site and vote for our local shelter, Brunswick County Animal Services. Vote each day and the shelter(s) with the most votes at the end will receive much needed cash grants, vaccinations and pet beds from GreaterGood.org.
    The last challenge gave away 429 prizes nationwide. Our shelter could certainly use all the help it can get.

  • Un-American behavior

    o the editor:
    I’ve noticed a recent disturbing trend in policing throughout the USA. It seems that we are now accepting the “shoot first, ask questions later” mentality throughout this country and it has crept right into my back door.
    When reading the news of the tragic shooting of Keith Vidal, my wife and I both gasped in horror as we read the report given by Mark Wilsey Sr. regarding the incident.

  • Regressive tax changes

    To the editor:
    Recently, I reviewed six months of weekly newspaper (local) articles, based upon the experiences of two local politicians in the North Carolina General Assembly. The articles had a recurring theme promoting the myth that tax cuts for the wealthy and big corporations would “create jobs and improve the economy.”

  • Messages of the cross

    To the editor:
    Is the message of the cross of little importance to you? “For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.” (1 Cor. 1:18)
    What is the message of the cross? “Every man, woman and child is a sinner.” (Rom. 3:23)
    “Jesus is the only perfect man. If anyone is to be saved it has to be through a perfect sacrifice.” (Leviticus 22:21)

  • Be mindful of pets

    To the editor:
    How would you like to spend eight hours outside in 20-degree weather, in the dark?
    Well, pets don’t like it, either.
    Be a friend. Bring them in.

  • Wondering why

    To the editor:
    It seems like every other month, we read about South Carolina getting additional industry in the state, which translates to putting people to work. Companies like Boeing, Firestone, gun manufacturers from Connecticut, a calling center, BMW and other corporations are looking to relocate.
    What I am not seeing is news that some of these companies want to relocate in North Carolina, especially in Brunswick County.

  • Derbsters rocks

    To the editor:
    Thank you Rose and Bill Cordeiro and Derbsters patrons for the charity work you do. While you work hard in your restaurant (and kitchen) and enjoy your customers, you never forget the oppressed, the needy, and the sick.

  • Thanks from Cops & Kids

    To the editor:
    The Brunswick County Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 53 would like to thank all the business owners and residents of Brunswick County who donated to our annual Cops & Kids program. Because of your donations, we were able to take children from families with limited income shopping for Christmas.
