Letters

  • Clinton’s excuses fit for spy

    To the editor:

    Were I a traitor and working undercover in the U.S. State Department as a Russian or Iranian agent with the highest security clearance available, I would welcome former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s claim of convenience for maintaining a personal email account instead of the mandatory .gov account.

  • Civility has ended in America

    To the editor:

    March 3, 2015, will go down in history as the day civility came to an end in America.

    I was ashamed of how our elected officials treated the prime minister of Israel — from the president to all members of Congress who hide in their inferiority complex of showing respect to a better statesman and a heck of a lot more man than they will ever be.

  • Thank you, Amedisys Hospice Care

    To the editor:
    I wanted the public to be aware and also thank the staff of Amedisys Hospice Care in Bolivia for their wonderful home care of my husband, Harry, who passed away in December 2014. Harry wanted to stay at home and in keeping with his wishes, I tried, but during the last year of his illness, I was unable to take care of all his needs.

  • Global warming is debatable

    To the editor:
    The debate about global warming goes on and on. Do the scientists who say the planet is getting warmer ever make mistakes? Are they doing their fact-finding for political reasons? Could they be receiving funding from somewhere to form their opinion? There are scientists who present evidence that refutes global warming and who consider the idea absurd. Provide them with equal funding and watch what happens.

  • Science and political science are not the same thing

    To the editor:
    First we see a letter defining climate change as an elitist scheme to eliminate capitalism, and then we see a response by an elitist climate change advocate. The elitist climate change advocate’s response, like most, is limited to testimonials and based on polls lacking in substance and/or facts.

  • Data support Paws-Ability’s effective work

    To the editor:

    The Beacon recently quoted Calabash Town Commissioner Buddy Walton at the Calabash Board of Commissioners’ meeting: “They (Paws-Ability) turn 500 cats loose again to the public. They have no rabies shots and a multitude of germs in their mouth and paws. It’s a problem not only in Calabash, but the state and around the whole country.” It is a shame Walton spoke in such ignorance of this program.

  • Churches should be able to house those in need

    To the editor:

  • Paws-Ability’s efforts cost-effective, humane

    To the editor:

    The Beacon reported Calabash Town Commissioner Buddy Walton’s remarks at the recent Calabash Board of Commissioners’ meeting. He took issue with Paws-Ability’s request for support from the town to spay/neuter cats in the Calabash community. He was quoted as saying, “They turn 500 cats loose again to the public. They have no rabies shots and a multitude of germs in their mouth and paws. It’s a problem not only in Calabash, but the state and around the whole country.”

  • Climate change narratives dishonest, misleading

    To the editor:

  • County needs to remember homeless residents

    To the editor:

    I note the Brunswick County mission statement includes providing “... cost effective services ... to our residents.”

    The homeless are also residents. The county vision statement includes the phrase, “to provide such services with limited bureaucratic intrusion.” Finally, one of the core county values is safety. I would assume this also includes safety from natural phenomena, such as the cold weather we are now experiencing.
