  • Principal of the Year award reflective of good things at Early College High School

    Congratulations to Vicky Snyder, principal of Brunswick County Early College High School.

    Last week Snyder was among some of the best school administrators in Brunswick County nominated for the district’s Principal of the Year award. Snyder was named the winner.

    The award is an honor for Snyder, a longtime educator who has dedicated her life to teaching young people. The key to her success may be that she believes in an education team and sees the school where she works as an extension of her family.

  • Farewell, Madame Speaker. Man up, Mr. (presumptive) Speaker-Elect

    San Francisco could have represented both London and Paris in Charles Dickens’ classic, “A Tale of Two Cities” last week.

    It was the best of times as the San Francisco Giants clinched the World Series title after defeating the Texas Rangers four games to one.

  • Thanks for help with walk

    To the editor:

    On behalf of the Sarcoma Foundation of America, we would like to thank everyone for their monetary gifts and/or participation in the Second Annual Rae of Hope 5K Run Walk at Ocean Isle Beach on Oct. 30. 

    We had 90 participants in the run walk this year and hope to have even more next year.

  • Why do people run for office?

    To the editor:

    I would give anything to sit down with an honest politician, but the chances of that are about one in a trillion. 

    The only reason most run is for the graft and the millions of dollars in campaign funds they collect. Most have oil stock so they won’t go against the oil companies. 

    Some time ago they tried to stop the TV commercials from being so loud. It was approved. Then the politicians got paid off and it was squashed. 

  • America’s health not its wealth

    To the editor:

    America has a problem: everyone wants her wealth; few consider her health. 

    Many nations, being friends in need, wish her destroyed when the aid is necessarily withdrawn. More and more of her own people “take it all and give nothing back.” 

  • Stand up for the Constitution

    To the editor:

    No, Mr. Obama! We will not ride in the back of the bus being driven by a progressive agenda. 

    Remember the Constitution? I understand it can be a nuisance for the progressive vision. I do not want to go back. We need to go back to the principles of our founders. 

    The road our country is on runs two ways. With hard work, we will be able to stop working for the government and go back to the government listening to us and working for our interests. 

  • Don’t miss out on older workers

    To the editor:

    When workers reach a certain age, do they have an employment expiration date? I think Brunswick County business owners are missing the boat when it comes to hiring qualified employees for their businesses. 

  • New area church welcomes others

    To the editor:

    After five years of continued prayer, work and planning, members of the area’s Grand Strand Byzantine Catholic Fellowship now have a place to call their own. The small but faithful group of regulars come from Brunswick and Horry counties. The new Byzantine Mission is the first in this area and although still a work in progress, it is on South Carolina’s Highway 90.
