  • Those who burn can threaten safety

    To the editor:

    With regard to the story “Debris burning sends firefighters into action” in the March 24 edition of The Brunswick Beacon, there are other county residents who think the following (which became law in 1982) is an anachronism that should be repealed:

  • Are we still proud of this country?

    To the editor:

    In the course of the last few days, I am amazed and disappointed with the things people are supposed to do but choose not to or don’t care. 

    Many people don’t use their signal lights when turning. Recently, I waited at an intersection for an approaching car that turned right without a signal. When he got closer, I could see he was on his cell phone with one hand and steering with the other.

  • Why not donate park land?

    To the editor:

    Every week when the Beacon comes, there is always an article about the pros and cons of having a park in Sunset Beach.

    I know I’m dreaming, but wouldn’t it be great if the two men who own the land for the park donated the land to the town? We could name the park after them and everyone could enjoy it. We just can’t afford a park at their price.

  • Increase N.C. jobs

    To the editor:

    “Jobs, jobs, jobs” was the election cry, but now it is voter identification cards.

  • Ordinary workers are under attack

    To the editor:

    Those people who are cheering as politicians go after public employees should keep in mind that these same politicians are going after Medicare welfare for the middle-class, minimum wage (needs to be eliminated), child labor laws (let families decide), taxes on the rich (unfair to successful people), school lunch programs for needy children (not our responsibility), regulations on banks (interferes with capitalism) and Social Security (smacks of socialism).

  • Enjoyed reading writer’s column

    To the editor:

    Rachel Johnson’s (Beacon staff writer) column on how to cherish moments and make memories was realistic, warm and loving. 

    Hugs help people in good and bad times; it means you care. You are my kind of lady.

    Keep on hugging and caring.

  • What about a shuttle?

    To the editor:

    Due to the concerns of many people over the lack of parking and increased costs at the pier lot, it seems obvious that something must be done to accommodate day travelers and mainland residents with no place to park on the island.

    From what I have read in the Beacon, it appears the elected officials could care less about these families.

  • Vandals caught on camera

     To the editor:

    I live inside Brick Landing, a gated, private community. Since Halloween night 2009 we have experienced several instances of vandalism and larceny.

    The latest incident occurred before 2 a.m. the morning of March 16.

    After my property was vandalized in 2009, I had outside ADT security cameras installed along with a DVD recorder.

  • What about town’s code of ethics?

    To the editor:

    In last week’s article regarding a possible conflict of interest issue, Mayor Clemmons stated, “One of the golden rules you ask yourself is does this member stand to gain financially as a result of their decision?”

  • Supports plan for town park

    To the editor:

    We owe our council people a thank you for their forward-thinking vision of creating a park on the waterway for all the people of Sunset Beach to enjoy.

    The opportunity to procure the beautiful parcel of land located near the site of our old pontoon bridge is a priceless one. It is an opportunity that if not taken now will never present itself again.
