Pelicans game, organization

made recent visit memorable

My fiancee Janet, her son Ethan, who has Down Syndrome, and I attended the Pelicans game on July 3 after Zach Brockman was so kind to work with us to obtain tickets using a coupon in advance.

We had a truly great evening. The experience was refreshing and invigorating. The entire environment was very family friendly in many ways. The staff was helpful and polite. The fans were well behaved. The comfortable seats were in an excellent location, though I don't think there was a bad seat in the house. The interaction with the crowd throughout the game was great fun.

Though we didn't eat much, the array of food options was quite impressive. The fireworks were a blast. Ethan spent a good bit of time positioning his hat in hopes of catching a foul ball. He makes friends wherever he goes. A gentleman seated nearby who is a bit connected placed a call ... and then the Pelican showed up at our seats to deliver a ball autographed by the entire bullpen group. We will cherish the ball. We will cherish the memories for a lifetime. When next we are in the Myrtle Beach area, attending a Pelicans game will be a top priority.

Motorists, bicyclists

play role in safety

I have almost hit bicycle riders who are riding incorrectly on the roads. According to the traffic laws, a person on a bicycle should ride in the direction of the traffic; riding against the traffic is illegal.

Also, it is extremely dangerous to not use the car’s turn signal, and signal several feet before you turn. This is one of the main rules you learn when you take driving lessons. Prevent accidents – use your turn signal.
