Natives deserve Miss Calabash naming honors

-A A +A

To the editor:
I would like to state my opinion on the Miss Calabash article. I have worked with the Coleman family for more than 10 years, so I am very familiar with Crystal Coleman-Nixon, Shaun Hardee Bellamy and the Miss Calabash name.
That name has been with this family for as long as I have known them. The “Mrs. Calabash” story has been published in both of these restaurants and on the backs of each food menu since before I was an employee.
I know both of them personally, and they get along with every restaurant owner on the river, as well as the town of Calabash. It’s all positive competition. They welcome all new businesses to Calabash, but people profiting off their heritage is unfair to them and the family name.
