  • Focus on Health

    To the editor: Brunswick Community Hospital offers a program called Focus on Health on the third Thursday of each month at 2:30 p.m. at the Brunswick Electric Membership Corp. meeting room with a doctor or other medical personnel.

    This program is excellent. It is usually advertised on the front page of the Beacon the week before with the person who is speaking and what
    they are speaking about.

  • Wilson serving admirably

    To the editor: I am writing to say that Cheryl Cheers Wilson is and has been serving effectively, admirably and energetically as our Brunswick County Clerk of Superior Court since she was elected in 2006. If you’ve dealt with her office, you may have had a no-stress experience as I did after my husband passed away, and then again after a friend passed away. She guides a well-run and courteous ship.

  • McIntyre attacking own party

    To the editor: Democrat Mike McIntyre is a disgrace to his party. He is attacking his own party leaders in political ads. He claims to be a Blue Dog Democrat, which supports the Republican agenda.

    Mike, your color is not blue but yellow. You voted against the healthcare bill, and you voted against some of the stimulus programs to help the country out of the financial collapse the Republican Party put us in.

  • What’s real?

    What’s real?

    To the editor:

    Let’s take a break, forget the difference between real and fake, oceans feed

    rivers that turn into lakes, the sun warms the earth to give rain a purpose,

    to moisturize the surface it talks softly to the seed so that the seed is not

    afraid to be the flower that feeds the bee, know that all life comes from the

    sea all life must breathe. We are only what we hate, this path chooses our

    fate, the difference between a full and empty plate, is whether you have the

  • Thanks for supporting taxpayers' interest

    To the editor: Just got home from the hospital and want to thank you for supporting the taxpayers. I have a new heart and you made it feel better…for attempting to help the many struggling families in our town who will be burdened by the sewer cost, the  “free” second fire station and now the council’s broken promise led by councilman Lou DeVita to buy the park without grant funding, including the land and construction cost.

    The park could cost taxpayers nearly $4.5 million dollars (excluding maintenance).

  • Don't use tax money for park

    To the editor: I am all for the historic preservation of our (old) Sunset Beach Bridge, as well as the proposed park. That said, I am opposed to forsaking a much needed boat ramp or in any fashion using tax dollars for this endeavor during these tough economic times for a “nice to have.”

    I’d much rather see the money used to pay the $8,000 or so it will cost each one of us to hook up to the sewer system I don’t remember voting for.

  • Supports MacCallum

    To the editor:

    The election of our next Clerk of Superior Court is worth caring about. This position is important, so I wish to voice my support for Jim MacCallum for this position.

    Not long after meeting Jim, I recognized his leadership qualities. We first met when Jim asked for my involvement with one of his favorite charities. I was immediately impressed with how much Jim does for our community. Yet, unless involved yourself, you might not be aware of all he does, as he generally does not seek out kudos. He just does it for the joy of giving.

  • Visitor will come back

    To the editor:

    People say it’s hard to find good help or someone to help. After recent events, I do not agree.

    My husband and I were on vacation in Holden Beach recently, a much-needed vacation, when we began having car problems. A car problem in a strange place equals a major stressor, but we certainly did find a person to help.

  • Integrity for those who served

    To the editor:

    Although I don’t know where Mr. John Difloure is coming from when he calls Congressman McIntyre “Pelosi’s lapdog,” I do have to agree with him that the McIntyre mailing is nothing more than a slick agency-created campaign piece. The small type “Veterans Newsletter” doesn’t fool anyone. So give the money back, Mike.

  • Council woman apologizes

    To the editor:

    I would like to extend an open apology to the shop owners and congregants who attend services in Pelican Square.

    In retrospect, my attempt to use humor to make a point was not the best approach I could have employed. I recognize and applaud the contributions each of the establishments make to Sunset Beach and no disrespect to their efforts was intended.

    My goal is to improve the facade and general look of Pelican Square for the benefit of the town and the establishments in the Square.
