I would like to say thank you to each concerned citizen and organization that gave gifts to my grandchildren on Christmas. We appreciate it.


Why don’t these businesses put up electronic doors for when they get robbed they can lock the doors and they (robbers) can’t get back out? I think it would be a very good idea.


Gas is $3.27 a gallon in Chocowinity and $3.45 a gallon in Washington. What’s wrong with this picture?


I though the Democrats were for the ordinary people. If so, why do you suppose they want to put a sales tax on us poor folk who don’t have to pay property taxes? Sounds like they are trying to help the rich property owners.


The No. 1 problem on the Washington waterfront are not the cats or seagulls. It is all the trucks that show up each night, congregating in the parking lots. They play loud music, have revved-up motors and use filthy language and, worst of all, speeding through the lots, along Stewart Parkway, then down Water Street and Main Street. People come to be quiet and enjoy being near the water, and all this activity with the trucks are flying by. Please, City Council, when looking at downtown problems, look at this and not cats and seagulls.


I hope Warren Smith runs for a Beaufort County commissioner’s seat.
