  • Honor veterans with boycott of NFL games

    To the editor:

    In recent weeks, there has been conversation and discussion of the NFL player’s behavior for lack of respect for America’s national anthem and flag.

    I believe it is time for true Americans to realize what kind of Americans they really are. Think about Arlington, Normandy, Europe, Asia and all over the world where miles of crosses of American military who made the ultimate sacrifice for America and the rest of the world. Being an American isn’t a given right, it is an earned right.

  • Vote Harris for Sunset Beach Town Council

    To the editor:

    If you’re tired of all the vitriolic behavior on Sunset Beach Town Council, get out and vote for changes on council.

    In last week’s Beacon, Councilman John Corbett gave you the names he suggests for your votes, but you need to remember that Corbett was appointed by some of the very people who have been party to the antics on council. He was not elected by voters. A vote for the people he suggests will just perpetuate problems on council.

  • Thank you, Brunswick Beacon

    To the editor:

    I want to give a very special thank you to The Brunswick Beacon for advertising our card party at Ryan’s in North Myrtle Beach, S.C., on Oct. 24.

    The Beacon generously ran our announcement for many weeks. It is so nice living in this community with The Brunswick Beacon helping us celebrate all our local community events. Because of it, we were able to raise monies that we can, in turn, help support many local charities.

  • History offers context for ‘verify before trust’ advice

    To the editor:

    Verify before trust!

    A little history is in order to clarify this discovery. From 1955 until 1969, the backside of the Sunset Beach island was continuously modified. Canals were dug by the landowner and the dredged fill was used to build the peninsula of North Shore Drive. Feeder canals were dug so each lot would have water access.

    In June 2013, the General Assembly passed a bill allowing the town of Sunset Beach to impose a canal dredging and maintenance fee. The fund does not exist.

  • Town must get back to basics

    To the editor:

    To the citizens of Sunset Beach: I’ve had the honor of working on Sunset Beach Town Council for two years and have seen and heard all kinds of misinformation thrown about, but several of the letters to the editor in last week’s Beacon by current colleagues and candidates for town council misstate facts and offer innuendo that lead to character assassination, for lack of a better term.

  • Vote Harris for Sunset Beach Town Council

    To the editor:

    My husband and I have been permanent voting residents of Sunset Beach since 1997. One of the first people I met at an island coffee shop 20 years ago was Jan Harris. Even back then I was impressed by her knowledge of issues facing our town.

  • Council should not tolerate bully

    To the editor:

    As my time on Sunset Beach Town Council comes to a close, I am dismayed to read Rich Cerrato’s self-titled “Tax Payers’ Digest,” recently distributed to Sunset Beach voters.

    Why I am one of the people attacked in his report is a mystery, since I am not seeking re-election. Mr. Cerrato’s digest contains dozens of errors, insinuations and statements that do not reflect the whole picture of an issue, I assume in an effort to get selected candidates elected who will support his views on town business.

  • State losing its democracy

    To the editor:

    We are losing our democracy in North Carolina. The Republican super-majority in the Statehouse is rushing to ensure that North Carolina is a one-party state. They are working to gerrymander by computer down to the last household to increase their authoritarian control of our government. The have legislated severe encroachments to the governor’s powers. They are scrapping judicial primaries to make next year’s ballot long and confusing, hoping to give GOP candidates a permanent advantage in maintaining their majority.

  • Councilman disrespects town

    To the editor:

    As a member of Sunset Beach Town Council, I’ve seen first-hand our dedicated police, fire, beach patrol, department of public works and administrative staff deal with matters that are made more complex due to our exploding summer population.

  • Vote Cranidiotis for Leland Town Council Nov. 7

    Editor’s note: The writer is seeking election to Leland Town Council in the Nov. 7 municipal election.

    To the editor:

    My name is Joy Cranidiotis and I am running for Leland Town Council. As we count down the days to the Nov. 7 election, I felt it prudent to express my concerns, as well as introduce myself.
