To the editor:
Our family has been enjoying Sunset Beach for 25 years and will celebrate our 19th anniversary as island homeowners this fall. We have followed developments concerning garbage cans this past year.
When vacationers arrive on Saturday, the first order of business is to unload, set up their cottage and then probably go to the beach or grocery store. Rolling back empty garbage cans is probably not top priority, or a major crime, no matter what town council members think.
We subscribed to the Beacon back in the ’90s, and some things have changed: the Sweatt family owned the Beacon, Cherri Cheek was mayor and there was a different bridge. What hasn’t changed in 20 years are the cranky letters to the editor by Walter Carolus and coverage focusing on petty issues and bickering by a local town council. Back then, it was Calabash/Carolina Shores.
Here’s hoping another town’s council takes over that role from Sunset Beach soon, as the continuing shenanigans are not a source of pride, or a good advertisement for the town.
I look forward to the next issue of the Beacon not featuring another cringe-worthy story starring Sunset Beach Town Council members and the mayor.
