• TV reception possible matter of perception

    To the editor:

    I have lived a long time and can now be called “elderly” without hurting my feelings. I remember watching “The Ed Sullivan Show” on Sundays. There were about three Lincoln or Mercury car ads in the one-hour program. As a kid, I looked forward to them to dream about someday owning one of the beautiful cars.

    I don’t, however, find today’s pillow commercials quite as warm and fuzzy, particularly when I see them 23 times a day. I spend more time dreaming with my head on my pillow.

  • Anti-wall is anti-Trump

    To the editor:

    We count illegals as part of national citizenry. Discussions abound about giving illegals the right to vote. Why?

  • Wanted: New leadership in Sunset Beach

    To the editor:

    Sunset Beach…Sunset Beach. Mmmm…sounds ideal, doesn’t it?

    Just picture it: A charming seaside village where year-round residents and tourists enjoy pristine beaches and striking sunsets. A peaceful haven where dog walkers and bicycle riders co-exist with shell seekers and sun worshippers.

  • Revised Clean Water Act threatens wetlands

    To the editor:

    Since 1970, the Clean Water Act has protected our rights to clean water. Proposed legislation has the potential to remove protections from many of these waters. In the South, this would put access to clean drinking water at risk for 70 percent of the population.

  • Assimilation not working

    To the editor:

    Teddy (Altreuter), are you really that clueless?

    For your information we have immigration laws, ports of entry, processing centers and well-trained authorities to carry out this process.

    Wake up, read a book or two on the history of our country.

    My ancestors came to America to colonize and build a nation in the early 1700s. I don’t know about yours.

    I think they did a remarkable job. They didn’t come here for welfare like what’s pouring in now.

  • Democrats have already transformed

    I’m challenging any reader to intelligently prove my comments and facts below wrong without throwing out the “racist, bigot and misogynist” label.

    I was a JFK Democrat for 40 years, leaving the party in 2010 when it became a leftwing liberal progressive socialist America-hating party. Don’t believe they hate America?

  • Council culture needs to change

    I just read a letter to the editor titled “Backroom politics continue in Sunset Beach,” written by Rich Cerrato, and I can’t stop laughing.

    The last sentence in his article states the culture of town council will only change when the voters demand it, implying that Mr. Benton, Mr. Corbett and Mr. Nern are the problem. Nothing can be further from the truth.

  • Thanks not a prank

    To the editor:

    Old Crank Who God Did Thank

    Had grown up and I became an old crank;

    Every day must make sure that God thank;

    Me did assist;

    Cannot resist;

    On Him, He knows I will always bank.

  • Chaotic council can’t justify dredging costs

    To the editor:

    In just one year, we have had the town administrator fired, two mayors resigned, two accusations of workplace violence, accusations of council members having a conflict of interest and a council member escorted from a meeting in our Sunset Beach Town Council. It would appear we have a chaotic, dysfunctional town council!

  • Cerrato drama is an embarrassment

    To the editor:

    At a recent Sunset Beach Town Council meeting, Mayor Pro Tem Mark Benton requested a brief recess in order to have town councilman Rich Cerrato ejected for continuously interrupting council members.

    Mr. Benton has stated that he has found it necessary to gavel Mr. Cerrato on numerous occasions for being out of order and disrupting council proceedings.
