Letters

  • Writer questions article's merit

    To the editor:

    I’m writing in regard to the “Sloane Realty, Debbie Smith” article on page 7A in the June 3 edition of the Beacon. I have read this article five times and cannot for the life of me figure out why it was written or even published.

  • Questions photo placement

    I write this letter to bring to your attention your story on Early College students who graduated this year.

    I find it an insult to the class valedictorian to be pictured on the inside of your paper and the salutatorian on the front page. I have nothing against the salutatorian. I think she should be recognized for her hard work, but she did come in second.

  • Disagrees with writer's letter

    To the editor:

    Typical of many progressives’ inability to argue facts, a recent writer in the June 3 edition of the Beacon criticized the Civitas organization because of the results of recent polling in North Carolina.

    Instead of pointing out errors, if any, in the polls or countering the findings with facts again, if any, the writer resorts to the tired old same limp and lame method of rebuttal–name calling.

  • Was offended by Richardson's comments

    To the editor:

    I served with the 101st Airborne Division in Vietnam in 1965. I stepped on a land mine in September that year and lost the use of my right leg due to my injury. I’m writing about the article in the Beacon quoting Frank Richardson of VFW 7288 about Memorial Day.

    The article did not sit well with me and a lot of other veterans that served in the military. I was a commander of a VFW post with 500 or so members for 7-8 years and a commander of an American Legion for two years.

  • Where will you go?

    To the editor:

  • Balloons return to Earth as litter

    To the editor: I am concerned about several articles and photos appearing in The Brunswick Beacon over the past month. Our citizens are releasing balloons into the environment. I have seen these balloon releases mentioned to celebrate loved ones, milestones (birthdays, weddings), loved ones’ passing, and most recently, a Memorial Day event.

  • Thanks to Airport Commission

    To the editor:

    Communities In Schools of Brunswick County, Inc. (CIS) would like to thank the Brunswick County Airport Commission for partnering with us for the second annual Big Toy Day on May 22.

    We couldn’t have been more pleased with the turnout from the community. Local businesses and municipalities turned out with their “toys” and let the kids climb all over them.

  • Schools need community support

    To the editor: I’d like to express how grateful Communities in Schools is for the community support reflected through Big Toy Day May 22.

    The smiling faces of the many children and parents were beautiful. Your support for our fundraisers is greatly appreciated. We could not continue to provide services for children and families if not for your generosity.

  • Doesn’t like cited source

    To the editor: The next time the Beacon unabashedly portrays the Civitas poll (May 27 edition) as a reliable, non-partisan source, your reporters could enhance their journalistic credibility by giving readers some background on Civitas.

    The “poll” is a once-removed creation of the John W. Pope Civitas Institute, a conservative “Foundation: On the Right,” although many might say the extreme far- right, including the “Tea Bagger” genus.
