  • Co-worker may have thwarted more bloodshed

    To the editor:

    In reference to the (New York) Daily News cover headline, “God isn’t fixing this,” on the San Bernardino, Calif., shooting: Consider maybe many lives were spared because the terrorists had plans to murder many more with the bombs and other devices but changed them because of an argument with a Messianic Jewish Christian co-worker.

  • Sunset Beach Town Council could still ignore voters’ wishes

    To the editor:

    Still time for mischief by Sunset Beach Town Council?

    Let’s begin by noting at the December meeting (usually the induction meeting) after both the 2011 and 2013 elections, council discussed and voted on old business before swearing in the newly elected council members.

  • 2015 OIB Flotilla was best ever

    To the editor:

    Way to go Michelle and Charles Griffin and Cheryl Wilson! You hit it out of the ballpark with the Ocean Isle Flotilla this year. It was the best ever.

    The most wonderful part of the event was you raised more than $19,000for Brunswick Family Assistance.

    The residents of Ocean Isle Beach and surrounding areas appreciate the hard work that goes into putting on this production.

  • Brunswick Toy Run seeks support from community

    To editor,

    I know there are many great charities out there, but the Brunswick Toy Run is still doing its part and has for the past 23 years. All monies raised go to helping the less fortunate in our county. This nonprofit has given back more than $250,000 to our community.

  • Thank you for donations benefitting Wounded Warriors

    To the editor:

    The Sea and Sand Band performed recently at the Veterans’ Memorial dedication at Sunset Beach Town Park and would like to thank everyone from Sea Trail, Brunswick County and the Sunset Beach community for their donations to the Wounded Warriors project.

    Donations totaling $426 were collected and will be used to support our women and men in the armed forces who have sacrificed so much for our country.

    Thanks for your support of this event. It was an honor to be a part of it, and we hope to see you again soon.

  • Thanks for Thanksgiving contributions

    To the editor:

    Waccamaw School would like to thank the VFW and the Willis family for their donations of Thanksgiving meals to families in our community.

    Dwight Willis and wife, Becky, donated a Thanksgiving meal in a basket. VFW members Jim Harrington and Andy Shoddy delivered seven Thanksgiving meals.

    Thank you for your generosity and your support of our community.

  • Tide has changed in Sunset Beach

    To the editor:

    At the Sunset Beach Nov. 17 workshop, council voted to carry over discussion of the procedure to fill a vacant council seat to Dec. 14. The motion that passed included provisions to delay the selection until January, allowing interested parties to submit resumes for the seat. There was a potential bomb in the discussion leading up to the vote. Councilman Lou De Vita wants the two recently ousted councilmen to participate in the selection process.

  • Shame on graveyard vase thieves

    To the editor:

    As I visited my grandmother’s grave this holiday season, my flowers will have to lie on the ground because someone stole the bronze vase. All the vases have been stolen from this cemetery.

    Not only would I like to see the person caught for stealing them, I would love to know who in the world is buying them. To be sure, they know they are stolen.

    Ugh! Thieves!

  • Thank you for supporting charity event

    To the editor:

    Thank you to all who participated in the “Make It Bake It Sew It Grow It” charity auction held at Sea Trail Convention Center on Nov. 10.

    The annual event, presented by Sea Trail Garden Club, raised about $10,000 this year. The monies will be directed to local charities in Brunswick County.

  • Council members should listen to constituents

    To the editor:

    Following is an excerpt from an email Mayor Ron Watts sent to citizens he had heard from (myself included) regarding the appointment of a replacement for councilman Terry Johnson who conveniently resigned on Election Day: “It appears at this stage that a basic majority of three current council members intend to skip the recommendation of taking our time and establishing an application process, and instead plan to go ahead at Tuesday’s work session and appoint Mike Williams to fill the two years remaining in the term of the open position.”
