Today's Opinions

  • Library hosts high-quality artist program

    To the editor:

    Hickmans Crossroads Library recently sponsored an amazing artist named Adam Miller.

    Known as “one of the great autoharpists and folksinger of our time,” “a true folk gem” and “a national treasure,” Miller regaled the audience with tales and tunes ranging from ancient Ireland to contemporary Appalachia. Old and young alike were thoroughly entertained.

  • Clarifying CRA

    To the editor:

    I’ll let letter to the editor writers Thomas McGrath and James P. Moore Jr. argue about who is the better Democrat or Republican, but after more than 30 years in the banking and bank regulation business, I can assure you the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) does not state “work history, credit scores and income and loan history could no longer be considered when determining the approval of a loan.”

    Nothing in the CRA dictates mortgage underwriting standards.

  • South Atlantic Radiation Oncology treats patients like family members

    To the editor:

    I would like to express my deep appreciation to the doctors and staff of South Atlantic Radiation Oncology in Supply for their help and the kind, gentle manner in which I was treated during my radiation treatments over the last few months. South Atlantic Radiation Oncology is the satellite office of Coastal Carolina Radiation Oncology in Wilmington.

  • Stars showed how to be the coolest person alive

    There have been exactly three times in my life when I knew I had to have been the coolest person alive. All of them had to do with music.

    The first was when my godfather bought me Michael Jackson’s album, “Off the Wall” as a gift. I was the first of my friends to get it and I quickly became the envy of my second-grade class.

  • Expressions of sympathy ease grief

    You know, I really believed our friend Sarah Sue Ingram would beat the cancer she had.

    Instead, it took her from us last month, barely more than 24 hours after I bought a new batch of silly greeting cards for us to sign and send to her, as she requested after she told us she was sick. It wasn’t much, but it was all she asked of us beyond our prayers and kind thoughts.

  • CIS volunteers make the difference

    To the editor:

  • Trying to square a circle

    To the letter:

    In the April 14 edition, Thomas McGrath of the Brunswick County Democratic Party, in an apparent attempt to square a circle factually and previously established, provided more confusion than clarity.

  • Library offers much to community

    To the editor:

    I am writing this to share some wonderful information with all my neighbors who live in Carolina Shores and Calabash: Hickmans Crossroads Library has become much more than a library, its main purpose.

    It offers the following activities and events throughout the year: computer use, free first-class movies, adult coloring, chair yoga, needlework club, chess group, book club, Legos for children, meet the author events and more.
