  • Council should forever support Sunset at Sunset

    To the editor:

    There are certain things that make Sunset Beach the gem that it is: our beautiful beach, our community members, our smiling visitors, the great local stores, Sunset Beach Town Park, the Waterfront Market, the Old Bridge Museum and our town festival, Sunset at Sunset.

  • Sunset Beach should purge negativity

    To the editor:

    What is the matter with Sunset Beach Town Council? The Sunset at Sunset event is the envy of the surrounding towns in Brunswick County. The attendance every year demonstrates the desire for it to continue.

    Why would any one of you consider a proposal to transfer this entity from the town to some nonprofit that does not want it or is incapable of handling it? This is and should be a continued town event. The taxpayers here are proud of the ability of the community to put on such an event with very minimal town expense.

  • Keep Sunset at Sunset at its current site

    To the editor:

    I have been a vendor at Sunset at Sunset for three years now, having the same spot each year. Over the years, I have run into customers throughout town that look forward to seeing me again at the event. This is a town of Sunset Beach event where townspeople go to gather and celebrate the area on a beautiful fall day.

    Vendors rely on customers looking for them in a familiar location. Ingram Planetarium is such a location.

    Please keep Sunset at Sunset at its familiar and successful current location.

  • #Metoo experiences must be validated

    To the editor:

    Women’s #metoo experiences of inappropriate behavior must be validated by everyone, everywhere, before policies can be enacted and enforced. Here is a personal example when I was recently solicited for advice. Keep in mind I am a mother to two daughters.

  • Thank you for supporting Warm Homes, Warm Hearts

    To the editor:

    Part of our mission at Brunswick Electric Membership Corp. is to serve our community. One of the ways we do this is through our heating assistance program, Warm Homes, Warm Hearts. Every year since 2008 our members, board of directors, and employees have generously donated to this campaign, and BEMC always matches each dollar up to $50,000 per year. One hundred percent of those funds go to Warm Homes, Warm Hearts. Together we have raised $831,659 since the program’s beginning to assist our neighbors in need.

  • Civil Air Patrol offers thanks

    To the editor:

    On behalf of the Brunswick County Composite Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol NC 170, I would like to thank all the residents of Brunswick County and those from other areas who contributed to the 2017 Wreaths Across American campaign.

    This national event distributed 1,565,000 wreaths, more than 500 truckloads, to 1,422 locations to be placed on veteran’s graves in all national cemeteries worldwide plus other designated cemeteries Dec. 16, 2017.

  • BFA shares its Christmas story

    To the editor:

    I wanted to let you know Brunswick Family Assistance’s Christmas distribution this year was a huge success! After all was said and done, we helped make Christmas possible for 1,295 low-income children and seniors in Brunswick County this year.

  • Thank you for Pet Education Program support

    To the editor:

  • ‘Me too’ crosses boundaries

    To the editor:

  • Better ways to improve Shallotte roads

    To the editor:

    The Dec. 14 edition shows the Wall Street realignment as a done deal, to start in 2018-20. I haven’t seen how much this will cost, but the Oct. 12 edition said to move the ABC store would cost $1.3 million. To realign Wall Street and Shallotte Avenue would undoubtedly run into the millions as well.
