  • Calabash business earns A-plus rating

    To the editor:
    I recently purchased flooring from AAA Flooring on U.S. 17 in Calabash. When it was installed, it wasn’t the same as the sample the company had displayed at the store. A representative from the company came to my home and assured me it would be replaced at no charge; however, the company later said it would only replace the flooring, but I would have to pay to have the other removed and the new installation.

  • Hagan’s record speaks for itself

    To the editor:
    Regarding Debora Mawji’s letter in last week’s edition, the writer forgot to check U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan’s voting record. It is great that Hagan was able to help her husband.

  • Forbid oceanfront pools on Sunset Beach

    To the editor:
    As oceanfront property owners since 1997, my husband and I are concerned about the possibility of oceanfront swimming pools being permitted on our beloved island. Not only would the addition of pools adversely impact the environment, but also their presence would be devastating to the aesthetics of Sunset Beach. Privacy and overall atmosphere of Sunset Beach would forever be altered — for the worse.

  • Thanks to hospice for new life

    To the editor:
    In the Bible, it reads: “…to give praise to whom praise is due.” In January, I was given six months to live. Lower Cape Fear Hospice came in and began to take care of me. They started to give me medications to make me more comfortable, but instead of getting worse, I began to get better. There is no group of people that I have ever encountered who are more dedicated, professional and compassionate than these.

  • Problems don’t start with police

    To the editor:

  • Kudos for inaugural Oktoberfest

    To the editor:

    Being of German decent and born into a German-American family, I was indeed amazed at the European atmosphere at the Calabash Lions’ Oktoberfest last week. The Harbour Towne Fest Band put on a real Bavarian show. I enjoyed the sing-a-longs of German songs, dancing the polka and other fun entertainment. The tasty German-style food topped it off!

  • Thanks to Williamses for country fair leadership

    To the editor:

  • Check candidates’ voting records

    To the editor:

  • Look at pool facts before you leap

    To the editor:

    In response to last week’s Beacon article, “Oceanfront pools dunked in Sunset Beach,” it is truly a shame that a few ill-informed residents took the time to make a mountain out of a molehill. Throwing around wild accusations of unethical behavior by the town’s staff was totally out of order. It does pay to look and understand the facts before you leap on a matter out of sheer emotion.

  • Trash Bash makes positive impact in OIB

    To the editor:

    I am a jogger and every Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning I put in a couple of miles on the sidewalks near the Ocean Isle Beach pier. I pick up trash as I go, mostly cans and bottles, but this Monday morning, there was no trash to be found mostly thanks to the Trash Bash on Saturday morning, Sept. 20. It was heartening to see the West Brunswick High School Junior ROTC, the Girl Scouts, the OIB town commissioners, land conservancy and turtle patrol volunteers and so many proud homeowners represented in the clean-up crews Saturday morning.
