  • Kudos to ATMC, tech support staff

    To the editor:

  • Council members should answer for proposed tax increase

    To the editor:

    When corporate executives knowingly cover up their fiscal mismanagement and mislead their shareholders and the Security Exchange Commission, they resign and are prosecuted. In Sunset Beach, Councilmen Lou DeVita, Mike Williams and Wilson Sherrill have committed the same violation, as evidenced by a 31.4 percent tax rate increase recommendation.

  • Proud to be Brunswick County Chamber member

    To the editor:

    I read recently that a local couple wants to launch a “new” chamber. Their new chamber would spend years “re-inventing” what a chamber is.

    The national chamber would not recognize the new chamber. This sounds to me like a local business that has not taken the time to get involved and find out what the existing local chamber can actually do for a business.

  • Day of reckoning has arrived

    To the editor:

  • Seeking return of girl’s birthday gift

    To the editor:

    I would appreciate any help with the return of my daughter’s tablet. We were at Vision Square on April 22 and while we were checking out, she set her tablet down on the bench by the checkout window and that was the last we saw of it. It was in a dark red top zip case along with her headphones and charger.

  • Wine Fest thanks its sponsors

    To the editor:

    The Ocean Isle Museum Foundation Inc. (OIMF) hosted its annual Wine Fest fundraiser May 3. More than 250 people enjoyed an evening of tasting wine, sampling food, participating in a cork pull and 50/50 raffle, and bidding on live and silent auction items. Proceeds from Wine Fest will be used to support the Museum of Coastal Carolina in Ocean Isle Beach and Ingram Planetarium in Sunset Beach.

  • Anti-tax referendum voters will reap what they sow

    To the editor:

    I want to thank the 8,669 voters who voted against the Brunswick County sales and use tax proposed by the Brunswick County Board of Commissioners. I read in the editorial page of the Beacon letters of opposition to the tax and the reasons given prior to the primary. I heard in just listening to conversations of the opposition against the tax.

  • Kudos to board of elections staff, volunteers

    To the editor:

  • Thanks to Boys & Girls Home benefit participants

    To the editor:

    Generally, letters to the editor are filled with complaints, criticism and accusations; however, there are probably more occasions to praise, be thankful for, highlight and appreciate, but rarely do you see it in print.

  • Sunset Beach should cut spending

    To the editor:

    Wow, Sunset Beach says there won’t be money enough to pay its bills next year and proposes a whopping 31-percent tax increase. Strange, because it seems just a few months ago former mayor Rich Cerrato commented that the town was broke and was almost crucified by the town council for spreading false information.

    In lieu of council’s denials, it seems hard to believe a hefty tax increase is now critically needed. It causes one to wonder if we are experiencing a council credibility gap.
