Sun on the Street

If leprechauns granted wishes, families would benefit

With this feature, we seek to capture a glimpse of what you and your neighbors have to say about a variety of topics, issues, events - and just plain fun questions.

You might find us anywhere around the island with a camera and note pad, asking simple questions and looking for thoughtful answers. If we find you, we hope you will want to participate.

For this issue, with St. Patrick's Day just ahead of us, at a birthday celebration at Reilley's Grill & Bar on the south end, we asked party goers, "If you could catch a lucky leprechaun, what would you wish for?"

Marcia Chatham (the birthday girl), Lake Hartwell, Ga.: "I'd wish for my husband to be in better health."

Ellen Glazer, St. Louis, Mo.: "I'd wish for the health of all my friends and family because that would bring me joy."

Tammy Martin, Hilton Head Island: "I'd wish there would be a cure for cancer."

Linda Meyer, Bethlehem, Pa.: "I would wish to come back to Hilton Head Island get to know the people better - it's beautiful, and people are warm-hearted and friendly."

Nan Stafford, Hilton Head Island: "That my daughters would move here."
