Letter To The Editor: Where Is The Love?

Dear Editor One of the joys of election season on IOP is hearing proclamations of love for IOP. Candidates proclaim no one loves IOP more than they.

Letter To The Editor: It’s All About The Details

He clearly indicates that he likes to say no to just about everything and has yet to befriend accuracy and detail. Take, for example, his “millage increase” no vote, he implied there …

Dear Editor, As owners of Isle of Palms Beach Chair Company, we wish to respond to last week’s Letter to the Editor written by John McMaster. To answer his question, nobody gave us permission to store our equipment in the dunes. It has never been and will never be company policy to do so. If …

Letter To The Editor: McMaster

Dear Editor I would like to know who gave the Isle of Palms Beach Chair Co permission to overnight their equipment in the dunes.

Letter To The Editor: Conservatives, Moderates Speak Up

Dear Editor, When you see a wrong oppose it. This was a core value we were all taught while growing up at home, in Sunday school, in youth sports and in civic organizations. During a tumultuous Presidential primary campaign my siblings reminded me that “The Donald’s” behavior, language, manners and demeanor were contrary to everything …
