  • Help save, protect cats

    To the editor:

    Thanks so much to all my friends and store owners who put up fliers, Sunset Beach police and the many new acquaintances I met who were so helpful when my housecat escaped recently. Bindi was not familiar with the area, so I was greatly relieved to find her frightened and much thinner after 15 days out in the freezing weather.

  • Lions Clubs assist diabetic students

    To the editor:

  • H2GO plant unnecessary

    To the editor:

    H2GO is planning to build a reverse osmosis water treatment plant on property in front of the Magnolia Greens/Waterford communities.

  • Climate change is real issue
  • ESEA needs support

    To the editor:
    Parents, educators and community members: Communities In Schools of Brunswick County (CIS), representing more than 3,100 students, their families and the Brunswick County community, needs your support. Congress will be re-authorizing the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) as soon as next week. ESEA is the federal government’s single largest funding pool for K-12 education.

    Last week in the North Carolina General Assembly, we had less activity than normal because of the weather in the Raleigh area, we had no vote sessions in the House of Representatives and few votes in the Senate, and we were able to put more work behind the scenes into some of the bills we hope to file and pass.

  • I really dodged a bullet there

    Last week was very exciting for one of our Brunswick County residents thanks to a life-changing lottery win.

    And yes, I am including myself in the congregation who are very happy for, and a bit envious of, but really very happy for the winner.
