  • Going to church prepares us for life in heaven

    To the editor:

    I have heard people say, “I don’t have to go to church. I believe you can be a good Christian without going to church.”

    My question is: why would a good Christian not want to go to church? A better question might be: how do you keep a good Christian out of church?

    People in foreign countries walk great distances to go to church, sometimes risking their lives. Totalitarian states have tried for centuries to prevent good Christians from going to church.

  • Kindness on display in Sunset Beach encounter

    To the editor:

    On the morning of Sunday, Sept. 2, my daughter, grandson, their Labrador retriever Piper and myself were taking a walk down Main Street on Sunset Beach. Unfortunately, a dog ran out from a home and charged our dog.

    But this is not about a dog attack. It’s about the kindness of so many people who came to our assistance.

  • Words matter

    To the editor:

    Many, if not most, of President Trump’s supporters distinguish between his policy positions and his Twitter language. They applaud the former and excuse the latter as “Trump being Trump” or “He’s just fighting back.”

    The President of the United States of America should be held to a high standard. Presidential traits should include them being a unifier, respected, of high character, diplomatic, understanding, putting country above self and compassionate.

  • Corporations are apparently people with special privileges

    To the editor:

    Last month I was part of a group of south Brunswick Democrats who organized a golf outing fundraiser for the upcoming election that was attended by more than 100 people. At the awards ceremony, a check for $4,000 was presented to the campaign manager for our candidate for U.S. Congress, Dr. Kyle Horton.

  • Thanks to all who help BFA food programs

    To the editor:

    Brunswick Family Assistance wishes to thank the Brunswick County Association of Realtors, Second Helping OIB and Matthews Ministries volunteers for their participation in its Summer Food Program.

    This summer, BFA purchased 450 pre-packed bags containing cereal, pasta entrees, peanut butter and jelly squeeze packs and fruit — enough food for each child to have breakfast and lunch for seven days.

  • Having a heart not enough to win election

    To the editor:

    Dr. Kyle Horton is running against incumbent Congressman David Rouzer in the midterm elections for the 7th District. She has never held or run for public office and is fuzzy about what issues she supports and doesn’t support, especially those that impact our district; however, she wants to make it clear the extreme liberal Democrat Congressman John Lewis is a person she most admires. Really?

  • Thanks for supporting CIS school supplies drive

    To the editor:

  • President’s believers will bear pain of his plans

    To the editor:

    During World War I, Germany was torn apart. Its economy was in tatters and people were suffering.

    However, one very bright young man possessed an amazing gift. He could talk to the disadvantaged and be heard. He told them that outsiders were against them. Those outsiders had power and money and position. He said that for the “people” to prevail, the powerful Jews must be brought down. After all, they were corrupt and evil.

    The people believed him. His name was Adolph Hitler and he led them into hell.

  • Stand behind calls for stricter border controls

    To the editor:

  • Why are Republicans avoiding local LWV forums?

    Editor’s note: The writer is running against incumbent Republican Marty Cooke for the Brunswick County Board of Commissioners District 2 seat as a candidate unaffiliated with a political party.

    To the editor:

    Brunswick County Republican candidates are refusing to participate in the League of Women Voters of the Lower Cape Fear candidates’ forums this year. Why? Are they hiding? Do they think answering questions is bothersome? Or are they so arrogant they do not think they can lose?
