Letters

  • Clinton deserves a fair shake

    To the editor:

    It’s time for Donald Trump and his supporters to stop maligning Hillary Clinton and start examining Trump and his past performance.

    Trump’s record is full of lies, innuendos, exaggerations and bullying. Many of his business ventures have gone broke. Trump University was a sham that charged almost $35,000 in tuition and went out of business after multiple lawsuits. Trump has never admitted his mistakes.

  • Thank you for 9/11 event participation and protection

    To the editor:

    I offer my sincere thanks to all the fine people who took part in the 911 memorial service Sunday, Sept. 11, including VFW of Calabash, American Legion 503, American Legion Auxiliary, Calabash Elks, Calabash Elks bingo players, Calabash Lions and Shallotte Elks, and a special thanks to the Shallotte Police Department for looking out for our safety.

    Vito Ramaglia,

    event coordinator

  • BFA warrants continued support from community

    To the editor:

    Brunswick Family Assistance received unfavorable publicity recently arising from the abrupt departure of its newly hired executive director.

  • Seek God’s guidance when voting

    To the editor:

    In a paradox of power, we saw God at work Sept. 14.

    As Donald Trump stood speaking to the people of Flint, Mich., boasting and launching another vicious attack on Hillary Clinton, the Rev. Faith Green Timmons, pastor of Bethel United Methodist Church, approached him at the podium with gentle respect, firmly reminding him of his purpose and carefully reining him in. The Rev. Timmons is the only person yet to have the courage and the spiritual confidence to set limits on the mighty Donald Trump, the man who seems to believe he himself is God!

  • Thank you for supporting Casino Night for Charity

    To the editor:

  • Credit McCrory for state’s economy

    To the editor:

    I rarely agree with Vice President Joe Biden, but he was right when he came to North Carolina this week and highlighted the improving economy in the state.

    The latest analytics have North Carolina as one of the top five states to do business, and our tax climate has jumped from an abysmal 44th to a much more respectable 15th. While the national recovery is still considered one of the worst in history, all of this positive growth in North Carolina has occurred under Gov. Pat McCrory.

  • Cooper doesn’t stand up for law enforcement

    To the editor:

    I have been wondering: Does North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper really stand up for law enforcement? Last week’s endorsement of Gov. Pat McCrory by the North Carolina Police Benevolent Association answers that for me.

  • Rights do not justify uncivil behavior, words

    To the editor:

    I would like to thank The Brunswick Beacon’s managing editor, Jackie Torok, for the wonderful civics lesson she provides on freedom of speech in her Sept. 1 column. At a time when freedom of speech has become a casualty in the nationwide war for political correctness, it’s refreshing to hear it is still valued on the public square.

  • CIS program decisions explained

    To the editor:

    Last week Communities In Schools of Brunswick County (CIS) made a decision just prior to the start of school to close fee-based Before and After School Programs at Belville, Southport, and Town Creek elementary schools because of a lack of adequate student registration.

    Once this difficult decision was made, parents who had registered their children, staff, and affected schools were notified. This resulted in an outpouring of concern and pleas to reconsider the decision because of limited community child-care options.

  • Drivers need to slow down on Sunset Beach island roadways

    To the editor:

    My husband and I just returned home from a glorious month at Sunset Beach. It was our 35th year of visiting the prettiest beach on earth, so we’re very familiar with life on the island. It is exactly because we love the island that I write this letter.
