  • Wants to know more about interlock device

    To the editor:

    Recently, my partner had to have a Breath Analyzer Ignition Interlock Device (BAIID) installed in his vehicle due to a DWI. 

    While I in no way condone his actions, I have several concerns about these devices.

  • Thanks for help at fire scene

    To the editor:

    Tuesday night, Nov. 30, I received a call anyone would hate to get. “Your business is on fire!” I grabbed my keys and raced to Capt. John’s as fast as I could. It took me about 10 minutes to get there. 

    When I arrived, there were at least a half-dozen fire trucks and emergency service vehicles on the scene. I would estimate there were about 40 firefighters swarming the building like bees from a hive. Amid all the chaos, they worked like a well-oiled machine. 

  • Know the truth

    To the editor:

    In December 2009, Rich Cerrato, author of the Tax Payers Digest, filed a complaint with the State Board of Elections alleging that Gary Parker, Sunset Beach town administrator, councilmen Len Steiner and Lou De Vita and Mayor Ronald Klein violated North Carolina campaign statutes during the 2009 election campaign.

    The State Board of Elections, after an extensive investigation, has found “no evidence of campaign finance law violations.” 

  • Thanks for help with toy run

    To the editor:

    The 2010 Brunswick Toy Poker Run was canceled due to rain this past Saturday but we still had more than enough chaperones for the 80 children we shopped with. 

    I was concerned how a handful of helpers were going to shop with that many kids but 20 minutes before the children arrived a steady stream of familiar faces from motorcyclists and classic car folks came pouring in to help us.  

    I was touched by their commitment to help despite the weather. God Bless you all! My heartfelt thanks goes to you.

  • Thanks to The Brunswick Beacon

    To the editor:

    I again what to give a heartfelt thanks to The Brunswick Beacon for supporting Smart Start of Brunswick County, as well as other nonprofit organizations throughout our county. 

    Over the past several weeks, I have inundated The Brunswick Beacon with photographs and information regarding recent Smart Start activities. Each and every submission has been published for the community to read. 

    Thanks greatly for helping us share our successes.

  • Will there be a second Christmas?

    To the editor:

    Will there be a second Christmas? 

  • God is love

    To the editor:

    Recently, I’ve received two very touching e-mails about animals brought into wildlife rescue sanctuaries. These sanctuaries take in abandoned, injured and/or sick animals.

    Jasmine, a female greyhound, was taken in because she had been abandoned, abused and locked in a shed to die.

  • Upset about senior center changes

    To the editor:

    The questions are “who” and “why.” First, who would take steps to change the wonderful atmosphere that the Senior Center in Shallotte has had for years and that the seniors really enjoy? 

  • Do we become what we behold?

    To the editor:

    Far be it from me to even think that a little feminism may be involved, but has anyone noticed that many TV ads make complete idiots of their male characters while their female counterparts demonstrate an incomparable genius for every situation? 

    Has anyone seen an ad that reverses that order? Is someone “back there” revealing that we are becoming a nation of great gender imbalance? Or, could it be that someone “back there” knows the biblical principle that we become what we behold? 

  • What are the Seneca guns?

    To the editor:

    If we went 180 degrees opposite from where we now are, where would we be? They said that they have Seneca guns in Pakistan.

    If you went 90 degrees and 270 degrees from our latitude and longitude, where would we be? It could be caused by a refraction of sunlight or we are in a skip-zone. It is the result of two air masses coming together. Are the gun sounds coming up, going down or coming from left or right? Where do they start at and where do they usually end up?
