Boney & Associates Will
Design New Leland School
Work will begin right away on
plans for a new elementary school to
be built in the Leland area, with
Money & Associates Architects of
Wilmington awarded the contract.
"This will save us nearly $97,000
in design fees." said board chairman
Donna Baxter. "With the county
commissioners wanting us to keep
expenses down that seemed the best
way to go."
Using information from the peo
ple who will use the new school, the
architectural firm will reconfigure
its plans for Supply Elementary
School to suit the needs of the
Leland school community and re
quirements of the site.
The new school, which will be
built to serve f>(M) to 650 students, is
intended to relieve existing over
crowding at Lincoln Primary and
I eland Middle schools and serve an
ticipated growth in northern Bruns
The overall project is expected to
cost approximately $5.9 million.
A site must still he purchased anil
Baxter said the board is looking "at
some good possibilities."
"We're trying to get some really
inexpensive land." said Superin
tendent of Schools Ralph Johnston.
"Of course we'd like to have water
and sewer too."
Funds are available now for land
acquisition and project design. If the
school board and county commis
sioners can reach agreement on an
approach to financing construction
before the end of the budget year on
June 30. the commissioners have
agreed to advance another $500.(MK)
so that construction can begin as
soon as possible.
Boney & Associates was one of
six firms interviewed for the job.

Attention Sunset Beach Residents
Know Your Candidates
I presume we have all received the Taxpayers Association lit
erature introducing their candidates in the up-coming election.
For the most part it was well done, at times even eloquent. The
following are some facts and some thoughts that might prevent
us from getting caught up in the prose at the expense of over
looking the actual content.
We will start with the Mayoral Candidate, Mrs. Minnie Hunt.
In order to do justice to Mrs. Hunt, one must consider her years
of participation as an officer in the Taxpayers Association and her
activities while in that capacity. Mrs. Hunt was loud and clear in
her opposition to the annexation of the mainland territories.
Having failed in her efforts to stop it, she led a proposal to have
the island separated from the town. Mrs. Hunt is now asking to
be allowed to unite and lead a community that she did not even
want to exist and that she did not want to be part of.
Mrs. Hunt attempted to block construction of the Food Lion,
a highly popular venture with the residents.
Mrs. Hunt and her T.P.A. colleagues were successful in block
ing efforts to upgrade the bridge, despite knowing that the major
ity of the residents both on the island and on the mainland, favor
some type of improvement.
Progress on the bridge was stopped under the pretext of the
need for further review and additional study. Does that sound
familiar? It is the same rhetoric that is now surfacing relative to the
sewer /s tor mwater project. If we allow it, Mrs. Hunt will bury this
project with red tape and misinformation, until the real issues of
the sewer, like those of the bridge, are pushed so far afield that they
will lose momentum and fade into the background. This would be
viewed as a success by Mrs. Hunt, but would be a great loss to the
residents, the majority of whom favor the sewer /stormwater pro
ject. Mrs. Hunt's politics have never given much consideration to
the wishes of the majority. Her politics are now and always have
been self-serving, divisive and disruptive; hardly the qualities of
someone we can trust to unify and lead us.
We must ensure that Mason Barber is allowed
to continue as our mayor, a position he has admin
istered effectively for a number of highly success
