Letters

  • Storm debris pickup complaint lacks logic and community spirit

    To the editor:

    Mr. James Lask, you demanded a response from the county commissioners in your letter published Oct. 25 concerning storm cleanup being provided to some gated neighborhoods. I am not a county commissioner, but I am happy to respond.

    You say you have lived in this county for 30 years and you are upset some gated communities got county help with storm cleanup.

  • Neighbors in county gated communities deserve support

    To the editor:

    I would like to address the gentleman who wrote the Oct. 25 letter regarding gated communities and his apparent misunderstanding and confusion of the functioning of gated communities. I quote him: “If one penny is spent for this, (debris pickup) then I want to be reimbursed from my property taxes that I have paid.”

  • Shallotte public works performs good work

    To the editor:

    About four months ago I stopped a town public works truck to tell them about a pothole on Pender Road at Glade Street. It was filled in the next day with some temporary filler but as rains came and went that did not really last and caused a lot of sand and rocks accumulated in that area. The only reason I mention this is I ride a motorcycle through that intersection.

  • County storm debris pickup stipulations reasonable

    To the editor:

    I applaud the decision of the county commissioners to include gated communities in the debris pickup as a result of Hurricane Florence. The stipulations were very reasonable and practical.

    I do wish the commissioners had agreed to reimburse, at a limited rate, communities that chose to have their debris cleaned up by private companies located in Brunswick County. This seems like it would be a win-win situation and would assist the county in completing the cleanup.

  • Sunset Beach taxpayers deserve answers on dredging

    To the editor:

    At Sunset Beach, taxpayers are now experiencing the second town council administration where five council members cannot agree to inform them of progress and costs of a two-and-a-half-year-old Shoreline Management Proposal, also known as “dredging.”

  • Time to accept Trump as our nation’s president

    To the editor:

    Regarding the letter in last week’s edition from Susan Bridges: I am one of those she categorizes as supporting “racism, sexism, environmental devastation, the devaluation of standards and lowering our status in the world.” I can tell you I am none of those things. I am a free thinker.

  • Accomplishments as president are what matters

    To the editor:

    The letter by Susan Bridges last week was a beautifully stated articulate reminder of why I ardently support this administration. Liberal hypocrisy is amazing.

  • Fair is fair for county storm debris removal

    To the editor:

    We are writing in response to the letter to the editor in the Oct. 25 edition, “County shouldn’t pick up gated communities’ storm debris.”

    We take exception to this letter. We live in a gated community and pay county taxes, just like any resident who does not live in a gated community. We don’t pay less tax than you, possibly more depending on the assessments of the individual house/property.

  • The ‘Selfish Generation’ makes world worse for children

    To the editor:

  • Thank you for supporting hurricane victims

    To the editor:

    Pure Markets would like to thank the community of Sunset Beach for its generous support of victims of Hurricane Florence. One member of our market family lost everything because of flooding in the aftermath of the hurricane. Through its generosity as well as the generosity of the Sunset Beach Summer Market community, she has now been able to return to her home. This is amazing since a little more than one month ago she was homeless.
