  • CCCS looks out for town’s citizens

    To the editor:

    The Concerned Citizens of Carolina Shores (CCCS) is a nonpartisan group of citizens looking out for the well-being of the town and its residents. It is hardly a machine.

  • What are you so afraid of?

    To the editor:

    In response to Leonard Jenkins’ letter last week, I would counter and say it is about time North Carolina cleans up its voting process. So, good job to the Republicans in the General Assembly. 

  • Can NCPA manage its ports?

    To the editor:

  • Thanks from Southport Christian

    To the editor:

    On behalf of Southport Christian School, I would like to extend a huge “thank you” to our school families and everyone in the community who came out to support SpringFest this past Saturday. We could not have asked for better weather for all of those who visited Franklin Square Park to browse local artwork, sample some of the best barbecue around and make the rounds of our game booths. What a blessing it was to see so many children enjoying outdoor fun on such a beautiful spring day.

  • Family says thank you to those who helped

    To the editor:

    We can never thank everyone for all the love they have shown to us during the sudden and tragic loss of our loved ones, the Joshua Williams family.

    To the very first responders, EMS, the sheriff’s department, the highway patrol: a very special “thank you.” We know this must have been hard on you as well.

    To Hobbs Realty for the house they provided for our out-of-state family.

    To Bobby Long for the peaceful burial plots he so freely gave.

  • Make your voice heard this November

    To the editor:

    You may recall the political machines that for years ran the cities of New York and Chicago. Well, Carolina Shores is now being run by a similar political machine. They call themselves the Concerned Citizens (CC) but it appears rather than transparency and resident representation, their only concern is about imposing their agenda on town residents.

  • Temperatures go down; activists’ calls go up

    To the editor:

    Isn’t it curious that after two of the coldest winters that the term “global warming” has changed to “climate change?”

    Now the environmental activists want very expensive restrictions no matter what the temperature. Information shown on the British meteorological office website shows no warming in the last seven years. The data not only shows flat-lined warming, but a temperature plunge in the past year despite the fact that carbon dioxide levels are rising.

  • We need the port

    To the editor:

    Re: NCIT-Why North Carolina needs a Deepwater Port and will “Get It” Sampson Counties EDD, John Swope stated, “For North Carolina to remain cost competitive for business and industry it must develop a deepwater port with a channel of at least 50 feet.” 

    Maersk Lines announced a $1.9 billion order for 10 container ships with 18,000 TEUs. Bigger ships mean NCSPA needs to keep pace with larger container traffic.

  • 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.
