  • Selfish drivers make crash response worse

    To the editor:

    I was appalled to witness the worst mass selfish ignorance I’ve ever seen in my 57 years while bumper-to-bumper on N.C. 211 on May 19 because of the horrific school bus accident up the road.

  • It is possible to avoid hell

    To the editor:

    What is hell like? God’s word says it is eternal separation from God (Matthew 25:34, 41, 46). What does eternal separation from God look like? It speaks of continual torment (Luke 16:22-23, 41 and 46. 2 Thessalonians 1:8–9). It tells of someone in hell begging for water and wanting someone to warn his family of his torment (Luke 16:24).

  • A divided Union

    To the editor:

    President Washington was leery of political parties, as the most passionate on each side of a policy issue often become unbending. A union, such as a marriage, a partnership, or even our Congress, requires understanding and tradeoffs to function. The shorthand my wife and I use is “this for that.” At its simplest form, I cut the grass as she does the laundry, each appreciating the other.

  • Kudos to ATMC, tech support staff

    To the editor:

  • Council members should answer for proposed tax increase

    To the editor:

    When corporate executives knowingly cover up their fiscal mismanagement and mislead their shareholders and the Security Exchange Commission, they resign and are prosecuted. In Sunset Beach, Councilmen Lou DeVita, Mike Williams and Wilson Sherrill have committed the same violation, as evidenced by a 31.4 percent tax rate increase recommendation.

  • Proud to be Brunswick County Chamber member

    To the editor:

    I read recently that a local couple wants to launch a “new” chamber. Their new chamber would spend years “re-inventing” what a chamber is.

    The national chamber would not recognize the new chamber. This sounds to me like a local business that has not taken the time to get involved and find out what the existing local chamber can actually do for a business.

  • Day of reckoning has arrived

    To the editor:

  • Seeking return of girl’s birthday gift

    To the editor:

    I would appreciate any help with the return of my daughter’s tablet. We were at Vision Square on April 22 and while we were checking out, she set her tablet down on the bench by the checkout window and that was the last we saw of it. It was in a dark red top zip case along with her headphones and charger.

  • Wine Fest thanks its sponsors

    To the editor:

    The Ocean Isle Museum Foundation Inc. (OIMF) hosted its annual Wine Fest fundraiser May 3. More than 250 people enjoyed an evening of tasting wine, sampling food, participating in a cork pull and 50/50 raffle, and bidding on live and silent auction items. Proceeds from Wine Fest will be used to support the Museum of Coastal Carolina in Ocean Isle Beach and Ingram Planetarium in Sunset Beach.

  • Anti-tax referendum voters will reap what they sow

    To the editor:

    I want to thank the 8,669 voters who voted against the Brunswick County sales and use tax proposed by the Brunswick County Board of Commissioners. I read in the editorial page of the Beacon letters of opposition to the tax and the reasons given prior to the primary. I heard in just listening to conversations of the opposition against the tax.
