    Hello, South Brunswick Islands
South Brunswick Islands Chamber of Commerce
Wilh one week under my belt as your new executive vicc president I
can certainly say that Brunswick County is deliver
ing everything as promised.
In my initial interview with the Chamber Search
Committee I said that I am "a mover and a shaker."
1 must have said the right tiling because you too arc
"movers and shakers." Let me tell you that the pace
of the South Brunswick Islands Chamber is not for
the faint of heart! You arc making things happen!
The dedication of everyone involved with the cham
ber is phenomenal. 1 am overwhelmed by the out
pouring of support and good will that I am receiving
from this community. You really rolled out the red RICHARDS
carpet for me, making this an exciting and welcome opportunity.
We have several things on the horizon. I look forward to seeing you
at the South Brunswick Islands King Classic on Labor Day weekend,
August 30-Scptembcr I, and at the Oyster Festival on October 18-19. 1
met with both of these planning committees last week. I must commend
the volunteers who arc doing an excellent job of coordinating these two
major events in our community.
I must also recognize the staff at the chamber for doing such a fine
job during the interim period before my arrival and for the patience they
have had with mc this first week. Good job ladies!
I am looking forward to meeting each and every one of you. It is an
exciting challenge that awaits mc as your executive vicc president.
! laving worked 'with the North Carolina Citizens for Business and
Industry (NCCB1) and the North Carolina Association of Chamber of
Commerce Executives (NCACCE), fortunately I am able to bring valu
able experience and contacts from all over the stale. I plan to use these
and many more resources to promote the South Brunswick Islands.
Some of you may be wondering if I'll miss my native Raleigh? Nah,
just look at what I've found here and besides at this pacc, who's got

The Soulh Brunswick Islands
Chamber of Commerce is making
an unscheduled stop this week,
courtesy of the N.C. Department of
The local chamber is one of two
across the state invited to join DOT
at The Great American Fly-In in
Oshkosh, Wis., July 24-Aug 2.
While the huge air show-travel ex
position wasn't on the chamber's
schedule of promotional events, the
invitation was too good an opportuni
ty to miss, said the chamber's Mary
Barton. Attendance at last year's Fly
In was estimated at 162,570.
"Both Annette Odom and Terry
Barbcc (current and incoming presi
dents of the chamber respectively)
thought it was a very nice offer,"
she said.
Mrs. Barton and Margaret Means
of the South Brunswick Board of
Realtors/South Brunswick Islands
Home Builders Association are
staffing the North Carolina booth
along with state employees, dis
tributing chamber visitors' guides
and other promotional material
about the area along with materials
about the state in general.
The invitation came about, she
said, apparently in recognition of
the chamber's all-out "1-40 Blitz" in
the spring, which took teams of
Brunswick County chamber volun
teers all the way to Asheville pro
moting the new route to the North
Carolina's southeastern shore.
DOT was to fly the travel promo
tion team to Oshkosh aboard a
state-owned jet. The chamber is
picking up lodging and meal ex
penses for its two representatives.
Markets Open On Upbeat
Note; Prices Up From Last Year
Flue-curcd tobacco sales began
on an optimistic note July 17 on the
South Carolina-Norlh Carolina
Border Belt, which includes ware
houses in Columbus County.
First day sales "went pretty
well," with prices up 8 ccnts to 10
cents from last year, said Tom
McLamb, county executive director
of the Agricultural Stabilization
Conservation Service (ASCS). "All
the farmers 1 have talked to are opti
mistic about the sales."
McLamb said markets are open
ing earlier this year due to the warm
winter and rain. Leaf quality is bet
ter than last year also.
He said 108 Brunswick County
farmers will sell tobacco this year.

County farmers were allotted
1,722 acres for tobacco this year,
but have an effective allotment of
1 ,742 acres.
The grower-owned Flue-Cured
Tobacco Cooperative purchase price
for leaf not selling below support
level prices is SI. 528 this year.

the opening of the Old and Middle

Subdivision Street Name Must Change
Developers of a small subdivi
sion near Holden Beach must
change the name proposed for a
street off of Old Ferry Road.
Mayo T. Cameron wanted to
name the road, located in the Cam
eron Winds subdivision, Cameron
But a Cameron Drive already ex
ists in the Sea Aire subdivision, said
Brunswick County Planning Direc
tor John Harvey.
Duplicate names would confuse
the county's 911 mapping system,
said Harvey.
Plans for the subdivision itself
were unanimously approved during
a brief meeting of the Brunswick
County Planning Board last
Wednesday. The five-lot projcct was
the only item on the agenda, except
for status reports on the county sub
division ordinance and 911 pro
gram, which will become opera
tional in 1992.
The plat for Cameron Winds was
originally filed wiih no means for a
tum-around. It was resubmitted
with a turn-around proposed as an
easement over land that will remain
part of one lot.
Board members agreed to allow
the variance. Jan K. Dale, registered
land surveyor, served as agent for
the project.
Cameron said he would work with
the planning department in choosing
another name for the street.
Before the 911 system becomes
operational, each street must be
named and all houses numbered to
aid in emergency response. Dupli
cate street names would confuse
emergency personnel responding to
a call.
Harvey said his house numbering
crews have completed work in the
Calabash, Sunset Beach and Ocean
Isle Beach postal zones, outside of
municipal limits.
Timer Firm Breaks Ground
Telechron Inc., a manufacturer of
elcclric timers and motors, broke
ground Monday for a SI. 3 million
plant in Leland Industrial Park.
The plant is expccted to create 30
new jobs at start-up and 70 at full
production, according to Secretary
Estell C. Lee of the N.C. Dept. of
Economic and Community Develop
The new 40,000-square-foot plant
will be located on a five-acre site in
the park and is scheduled to come
on line in late September.
Telechron plans, by 1993, to dou
ble the plant's size and bring the
company's remaining operations
here from its Ashland, Mass., base.
The relocation and expansion should
bring about 175 jobs to the region
over the next 2 1/2 years.
'Telechron is our newest corpo
rate citizen in Brunswick County
and we arc thankful for the jobs and
capital investment that this project
will privdc," said Kelly Holden,
chairman of the Brunswick County
Board of Commissioners.
Telechron expects the plan to pro
duce about S6.5 million worth of
timer-controlled motors for coffee
makers and air conditioners each
Telechron was founded in 1912
by Henry Warren, the inventor of the
electric clock. It was later owned by
General Electric and then Timex be
fore being purchased by inside man
agers in 1983.
The N.C. Employment Security
Commission is helping locate and
scrccn potential plant workers, while
Brunswick Community College will
provide free skills training in how to
operate the plant machinery at its Le
land Industrial Park Training Center.
Numbering in the Leland postal
zone was to be completed by early
this week. Workers there have iden
tified 20 more streets than had been
located on maps or aerial photos,
Harvey said.
The four temporary workers will
begin numbering homes next in the
