Gone to Glory
Thank goodness! The palm trees marching across the drawbridge have finally gone to Glory.
Thirty-one years it took them to expire. For thirty-one years every time I went over the bridge I wished them curtains.
Perhaps this time the D.O.T. will consult the talented Harbor Island Garden Club for their sage advice on a fitting landscape not only decorous, but pleasing to the eye of all who enter our precious island.
“Then the Sea and Heaven rolled as one, and from the two came fresh transfigurings of freshest blue.” —Wallace Stevens

Editor’s note: The DOT purchased the palm trees along Wrightsville Avenue and they were installed in 2006.
Most successful yet
Thank you so much for all of the coverage that Lumina News does to help promote the Bow Wow Luau & The Cat’s Meow!
Your coverage helped create awareness and has helped the event to become a well-known event at Wrightsville Beach.
This year’s event was our most successful one yet — we raised over $12,000 that will go to help many formerly abused, neglected and homeless animals in our community. Lumina News’ support is making a difference in our event!
I greatly appreciate your continued support of coverage — and, most of all, so do the animals!
