  • Letter claims merit response

    To the editor:

  • Thank De Vita for service to Sunset Beach

    To the editor:

    To Lou DeVita and members of Sunset Beach Town Council: I want to thank you, Lou, for your years of service to the town of Sunset Beach. I know you and the council get very little praise for all you do and for all you contribute. I saw you sweating and shoveling in the park to make sure the Veterans Memorial was placed correctly and presented with dignity. I have seen you making the rounds at the town’s social and cultural events and read about your efforts to calm hot heads who would do harm to the community.

  • Bravo to heroin task force team

    To the editor:

  • GOP stagnates American wages
  • Jonah’s story is no fairy tale

    To the editor:

  • Thanking those who support animal care

    To the editor:

    I am so grateful for all the people in our county who care about animals and are supporting the efforts of Paws-Ability and rescue groups. Because of you, thousands of animals a year will be spayed/neutered and vaccinated against disease. Reducing the number of animals who enters our shelters will allow us to better care for those we have.

  • America is already great

    To the editor:

    Now that the Republican and Democratic conventions are done, we can see the stark contrast between the two parties.

  • Correcting colleague’s claims

    To the editor:

    All citizens and public officials are entitled to submit their opinions to The Brunswick Beacon. However, elected officials have a special obligation not to distort the public record with statements that were never made in order to defend their decision.

    One of my colleagues wrote, “Expenses were not reduced.” Not correct. The staff, as instructed, reduced expenses in fiscal year 2017 by $268,000, nearly a 2 percent reduction, not to mention the reported surplus this past year.

  • Taken aback by Sunset Beach Town Council

    To the editor:

    I believe Ted Janes’ comments in last week’s edition ring true with much more than the majority of the citizens and taxpayers of Sunset Beach. I attended the June 21 council meeting, my first. Prior to going, I had asked a local business owner if he was going. He laughed, shook his head and said: “Kangaroo court!” Wow, his comment was spot on as well.

  • Attending RNC was an honor

    To the editor:

    It was an honor to be one of the three delegates from North Carolina’s 7th Congressional District, and the only one from Southport and from Brunswick County, to the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio.

    The convention could not have been run more smoothly and with such a high level of security without planning by Cleveland, the RNC and more than 3,000 volunteers and about 3,000 security officers who kept planned protestors from even wanting to come to Cleveland.
