I have lived in the Grand Strand since 1992 but I never subscribed before because my job as a tug boat engineer keeps me away from home more than half the time. I used to just buy The Sun News at a local store when I wanted to read it. Now, with my digital subscription, I always have it with me. I think the local paper is the best way to keep up with events in the Grand Strand.
I like the e-edition best because it is just like having the paper in my hand. It is really well designed and a pleasure to use. The cost is very reasonable. And the restaurant coupons alone make it practically pay for itself.
There’s nothing like sailing down the coast with the Sun News delivered right to my laptop. Love it.
Quick medical care
Oct. 26 2014, while fishing at Veterans Memorial Pier in Murrells Inlet, I became dizzy and passed out. My wife called 911 and the emergency ambulance arrived quickly from Waccamaw Hospital.
I was taken to the emergency ward where it was determined I was dehydrated and after receiving fluids I was released. I wish to thank the staff of Waccamaw Hospital for quick response and wonderful service, and my very special thanks to ER nurse Melinda Dennis.
Writer wrong with gripes
on area road directions
Re: Oct. 24 letter from Tom Pelligrini, “Residents, leaders confuse east, west with our roads”
Mr. Pelligrini should check his facts before writing in and complaining about trivial matters. The practice of numbering roads with even numbers for east-west and odd numbers for north-south originated with the Interstate System in 1956.
There are lots of state roads throughout the country that don't follow those guidelines. And, there are instances within the Interstate System where a route runs contrary to the directional model for several miles, like our own I-26 which travels north-south for many miles.
Find something more substantive to worry about, like how we can undo some of the messes that have been created by our leaders over the last six years.
