Today's Opinions

  • Let’s get rid of the gloomy view

    To the editor:

  • Parking changes have made a crowded island potentially dangerous

    As much as I would love to be an island homeowner, I have to settle on living in a more affordable inland area and day-tripping to local beaches.

  • New hospital is welcome addition

    Finding quality healthcare in a rural community can sometimes be difficult. It’s not uncommon for people in such areas to have to travel beyond their communities to access high quality, state-of-the-art healthcare.

  • Summertime good for reviewing (un)mannerly behavior at the beach

    As crowds gather at the summertime coastline, so do their manners—or lack thereof.

    TripAdvisor, a travel website, recently brought that revelation to light with release of results from its latest beach and pool etiquette survey of more than 2,000 U.S. travelers.

  • Changes coming for FNS benefits

    To the editor:
    July is a transition month for North Carolina families who receive FNS benefits (formerly called Food Stamps). The state Department of Social Services that oversees the FNS program made a recent change that affects the dates families receive their benefits.
    While it is a statewide decision, my concern is for our local families who will be affected. Some families will have to wait 10 days longer this month, requiring them to make their food last 40 days instead of 30 days.

  • Thanks for great service at vet’s office

    To the editor:
    On Monday, June 27, I unfortunately had to pay a visit to a local veterinarian hospital because I have a sick cat named Lucy that I have had for about seven years.
    When I arrived at the office, Lucy was close to death. She had been sick for several days and had gotten sick like this before but it always seemed to pass in a day or two.
    Words can’t describe the compassion and care the staff had for Lucy and me.

  • Thanks for returning purse

    To the editor:
    Thank you to the wonderful lady who found my purse by the side of the road in Seaside Station in Sunset Beach and made sure I got it back.

  • Thanks for help

    To the editor:
    I would like to thank officer Blaine Cully for his help in recovering my grandson’s wallet that was lost recently. He was nice, polite and very professional.
    A few days after it was lost, Detective Dunn called to say the wallet had been recovered. What a wonderful asset these two officers are for the Sunset Beach Police Department.
