  • Sunset Beach UDO represents lot of hard work

    To the editor:

    Sue Weddle alleges the Sunset Beach Town Council shirked its responsibilities in approving the rewrite of the Unified Development Ordinance (UDO) in 2012, and accuses members of council of not working hard enough for the citizens of Sunset Beach. Nothing could be further from the truth.

  • Protecting select few under guise of beach renourishment

    To the editor:

    Regarding the Beacon’s March 23 editorial: State Sen. Bill Rabon and Rep. Frank Iler, let’s call a spade a spade. The beautiful beaches of North Carolina will always be there if we shift with shifting sands.

  • Citizens pay for council’s due diligence failure

    To the editor:

    I’m baffled as to why Sunset Beach Town Council failed to act on Realtor David Stuart’s request asking the council to determine what regulations had been omitted, what regulations had been added and what regulations had been changed before passing the Unified Development Ordinance (UDO) at a December 2012 council meeting.

  • Work of all doctors worth celebrating

    To the editor:

    We would like to honor our doctors on Doctors’ Day. March 30 marks a day to celebrate the amazing work all of our doctors do for our hospital and community. This day is to celebrate the contributions they make every day by caring for our patients and their families.

  • All cyclists need local bike lanes

    To the editor:

    I moved to the area just over two years ago. For some time, I have been a cycling safety advocate, and cyclist, in central Florida. Since arriving back in North Carolina, I have not become involved other than in my long time volunteer work for the National MS Society and the Bike MS events.

    Laura Lewis’ regional bicycle plan report in the March 24 edition was very good, but there was another side to the story that wasn’t broached.

  • Thanks to McCrory, legislators for Connect NC

    To the editor:

    Thank you to Gov. Pat McCrory, after countless hours, who won bipartisan support in the General Assembly for the Connect North Carolina bond referendum.

    The Connect North Carolina bond overwhelmingly passed with the voters of this great state.

    The passing of the bond is proven recognition by the voters of North Carolina this is an investment in our citizens’ future and of the future of our children.

    Let us all be grateful to the superior job put forth by the governor and the support of the General Assembly.

  • Not all bad drivers are N.C. natives

    To the editor:

    From recent letters submitted for publication in the Beacon, I agree with most of the reasons why some North Carolina drivers don’t use turn signals. However, writers overlooked the fact that just because a car has an N.C. tag doesn’t necessarily mean the driver is “from” here.

  • Past Sunset Beach UDO omissions require action now

    To the editor:

    After reading last week’s Beacon report regarding critical missing ordinances from the Sunset Beach Unified Development Ordinance, I researched the minutes of the council meeting and public hearing on the UDO of Dec. 3, 2012.

  • Make N.C. 179 safer for all its travelers

    o the editor:

    I am writing to support Dan Dickerson’s letter to the editor in the Feb. 18 edition. I drive N.C. 179 every day. It is difficult to pass a bicyclist or a moped rider.

    Coming home one day around Christmastime, I had to stop and assist a gentleman sitting on the curb. A vehicle had come very close to him and caused him to lose his balance. Fortunately, he was not hurt but very badly shaken.

    Let’s make N.C. 179 safe for cyclists in our area.

  • Thanks for nothing, rude line breakers

    To the editor:

    I want to thank the two very rude people who broke line at Sunset Pier on Saturday, March 5, causing two of us who had been waiting in line for more than an hour to get a pass to be put on the waiting list.

    I hope you have a conscience and it causes sleepless nights thinking about such a childish act.
