  • Praying for successful school year

    To the editor:

    The new school year will soon begin. We ask you to please pray for the caregivers, students and teachers. Put a hedge of protection around all our children as the new school year begins. Pray for your children returning to schools or colleges and the specific institutions they attend as well as children in your church. Where possible, lay hands on your children and bless them. Pray for wisdom, favor and good success.

  • What kind of America do you want to endure?

    To the editor:

    It seems Teddy Altreuter is living in the forgotten world of the past when the Democratic Party stood for the things she mentioned in her Aug. 11 letter. Briefly, she states, “…where law and order are both respected and strengthened.” Really? Better remind the many Democratic mayors of cities that try to strip their police of the ability to protect law-abiding citizens.

  • Letter claims merit response

    To the editor:

  • Thank De Vita for service to Sunset Beach

    To the editor:

    To Lou DeVita and members of Sunset Beach Town Council: I want to thank you, Lou, for your years of service to the town of Sunset Beach. I know you and the council get very little praise for all you do and for all you contribute. I saw you sweating and shoveling in the park to make sure the Veterans Memorial was placed correctly and presented with dignity. I have seen you making the rounds at the town’s social and cultural events and read about your efforts to calm hot heads who would do harm to the community.

  • Bravo to heroin task force team

    To the editor:

  • GOP stagnates American wages
  • Jonah’s story is no fairy tale

    To the editor:

  • Thanking those who support animal care

    To the editor:

    I am so grateful for all the people in our county who care about animals and are supporting the efforts of Paws-Ability and rescue groups. Because of you, thousands of animals a year will be spayed/neutered and vaccinated against disease. Reducing the number of animals who enters our shelters will allow us to better care for those we have.

  • America is already great

    To the editor:

    Now that the Republican and Democratic conventions are done, we can see the stark contrast between the two parties.

  • Correcting colleague’s claims

    To the editor:

    All citizens and public officials are entitled to submit their opinions to The Brunswick Beacon. However, elected officials have a special obligation not to distort the public record with statements that were never made in order to defend their decision.

    One of my colleagues wrote, “Expenses were not reduced.” Not correct. The staff, as instructed, reduced expenses in fiscal year 2017 by $268,000, nearly a 2 percent reduction, not to mention the reported surplus this past year.
