  • Trash Bash makes positive impact in OIB

    To the editor:

    I am a jogger and every Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning I put in a couple of miles on the sidewalks near the Ocean Isle Beach pier. I pick up trash as I go, mostly cans and bottles, but this Monday morning, there was no trash to be found mostly thanks to the Trash Bash on Saturday morning, Sept. 20. It was heartening to see the West Brunswick High School Junior ROTC, the Girl Scouts, the OIB town commissioners, land conservancy and turtle patrol volunteers and so many proud homeowners represented in the clean-up crews Saturday morning.

  • Kudos for inaugural Oktoberfest

    To the editor:

    Being of German decent and born into a German-American family, I was indeed amazed at the European atmosphere at the Calabash Lions’ Oktoberfest last week. The Harbour Towne Fest Band put on a real Bavarian show. I enjoyed the sing-a-longs of German songs, dancing the polka and other fun entertainment. The tasty German-style food topped it off!

  • Thanks to Williamses for country fair leadership

    To the editor:

  • Check candidates’ voting records

    To the editor:

  • Look at pool facts before you leap

    To the editor:

    In response to last week’s Beacon article, “Oceanfront pools dunked in Sunset Beach,” it is truly a shame that a few ill-informed residents took the time to make a mountain out of a molehill. Throwing around wild accusations of unethical behavior by the town’s staff was totally out of order. It does pay to look and understand the facts before you leap on a matter out of sheer emotion.

  • Who pays for illegal immigrants

    To the editor:

    Regarding Michael Jones’ letter in the Sept. 18 edition, “Immigrant children should be welcome,” in which he says illegal immigrant children arriving from Central America should be welcomed, my questions to him are: How many of these illegal immigrants are you going to welcome into your home? How much money are you personally planning to pay to feed, clothe, house, educate and provide medical services to these illegal aliens that you say should be welcomed?

  • Ward would bring balance to legislature

    To the editor:

    I support Ernie Ward for the state Senate election in November because I think his position on education funding and income improvement for wage earners makes more sense than Bill Rabon’s. Two items in a recent edition brought home the difference in positions between the two local veterinarians.

  • Letter writer should get involved in Carolina Shores

    To the editor:

    I see where longtime Carolina Shores resident Charles Bebber had his semi-annual letter to the editor in last week’s Beacon. For many years, he has spewed venom on our town, its government officials and a myriad of other town residents, voicing displeasure with just about everyone and everything.

  • School board needs navigation device

    To the editor:

  • Carolina Shores does not need name change

    To the editor:

    The suggestion to rename the town of Carolina Shores because it has many named communities within it is just short of ridiculous! Other surrounding towns have a similar situation. Sunset Beach has Sea Trail, Thistle and Sandpiper, and Calabash has Calabash Acres, Hidden Valley and Saltaire Village. I see no one recommending a name change for those towns. Besides, renaming a town just incurs more expense with signs, etc. Don’t we have more important issues to discuss?
