Letters

  • Doesn’t like school start time changes

    To the editor:
    Recently the school board made the decision of the staggered schedule for all county schools. This decision will affect every family in this county with school-age children, with only a small percentage having a say.
    Every single family who has to rearrange their schedules should have had a vote in this decision; this includes teachers, coaches and any other school employee.

  • Will terminal groins save our beaches?

    To the editor:
    An article appeared last week in the Beacon that asked the question, “Will terminal groins save our beaches?” The answer is no for at least two reasons.

  • It’s the same, worn-out mantra

    To the editor:
    The Republicans did not adopt an arbitrary 13 percent state budget cut, but produced a historic balanced budget that reduced taxes, protected teacher jobs and ended the temporary sales tax as promised the people two years ago and did so without the one-time borrowed $2.1 billion in stimulus funds from Washington.
    The demonization of Sen. Bill Rabon as wealthy and not concerned about those less fortunate and on unemployment is the same old worn-out Democrat mantra.

  • Amused by position on creationism

    To the editor:
    I was amused with Kevin Zelnio’s letter making himself a spokesman for Brunswick County’s parents and teachers in regard to teaching creationism. He is a resident of Wilmington.
    He speculates about an enormous reservoir of North Carolina evolutionary biologists and said, “Science builds upon itself.”
    I submit that before science can build upon itself, regarding evolution, it must explain how the first cell came into existence. Darwin said if it could be proven a cell is anything but simple my theory is not possible.

  • Responds to opinion column

    To the editor:
    As I read Caroline Curran’s comment section and her story on Mr. Warren, I wonder if she realizes what she is doing is very close to the promotion of racism.
    When you report half-truths and the ideology you have expressed in these two articles, you promote the hate and the divide in the races by what [you perceive] to be no harm but to minorities is very offensive and demeaning.

  • The Republican Party left me

    To the editor:
    In their oft-repeated quest to “take our country back,” it appears Republicans are doing just that— taking the good-ol’ U.S.A. backward by decades.
    Republican attacks on hard-fought gains in collective bargaining, education, environmental controls, immigration, financial regulation and healthcare (to name a few) are relentless and merciless.

  • We all need Jesus

    To the editor:

  • Pick another contractor next time

    To the editor:

    Smith Avenue Project Complete? (June 9 issue of the Beacon) I would hope that S.T. Wooten Corp. would forever be removed from the Brunswick County list of eligible contractors in light of this project and broken promises already evident.

  • A big spending spree

    To the editor:

  • Drink the sunshine

    To the editor:

    Take a breath as you wake as if it were your first.

    Drink the sunshine; it will quench your thirst.
