OPINION: Stop raising parking fees at Wrightsville Beach

Elizabeth Fowler, Contributing Writer June 5, 2021
Visitors have to pay $5 an hour to park just to shop, dine and enjoy the sun. Is that fee really worth it?   The jump in parking costs from 2018, when it was half this amount at $2.50 an hour, is classist and exclusionary. The costs have been rising annually and reached a new high for the summer season of 2021. This needs to be reevaluated and changed for all beachgoers to enjoy this public area.

OPINION: Political leaders should use their power to accommodate for better transportation options

Michael Friant, Contributing Writer June 3, 2021
With the current housing crisis in Wilmington, a leader of his stature should use his power to boost the welfare of all his constituents. Rep. Rouzer should not have used one of his earmark requests to secure funds for a road expansion. He should offer an alternative that would be more efficient for everyone involved.

OPINION: The Gaza crisis shows that it’s time to stop glorifying your country at the expense of others

Jacob Sawyer, Staff Writer May 29, 2021
This senseless violence is another example of patriotism taken way too far. Idolization of the state was a key driving force behind humanity’s bloodiest conflicts, including both World Wars. More recently, right-wing nationalist leaders like former U.S. President Donald Trump nearly caused a further war with policies like imposing universal sanctions on Iran and escalating economic tensions with China.

REVIEW: ‘Those Who Wish Me Dead’ is a thriller incapable of igniting excitement and offering resolutions

Boyce Rucker, Contributing Writer May 19, 2021
Having been established as an original and expressive voice in modern cinema, it should not come as a surprise that major companies like Warner Bros. would seek him out. Released in theaters and to HBO Max on May 14, 2021, “Those Who Wish Me Dead” is the latest feature film to be both co-written and directed by Sheridan. The film appears to be much more commercialized compared to his previous films; however, the film falls flat due to the degradation of what made his most notable films stand out.
