Today's Opinions

  • Likes Sarah Palin

    To the editor:

    Staff writer Laura Lewis wrote an article in last week’s Beacon titled: “Seems like everybody doesn’t like Sarah P.”

    I like Sarah Palin. Though I haven’t been given the opportunity to really get to know her, what I do know does not cause me to dislike her. Her popularity has plummeted not because of any public dislike but because of a real concern regarding what we do know as the election draws near.

  • Liberal politics is not the answer

    To the editor:

    It seems by all the polls Senator Obama will be our next president.

    There is a real anger and hatred toward President Bush by liberals and a real dissatisfaction among voters who are tired of eight years of his policies.

    This combination of hatred by liberals and change wanted by many voters is causing an unusual combination of people coming together to vote into office as president the most liberal senator in the Senate.

  • Disagrees with writers

    To the editor:

    I respectfully disagree with writers of several submissions in your last publication.

    When all else fails and all that remains is desperation, blame it on the liberal influence within the Democratic Party.

    In deference to the Republican Party, the Democratic Party has a healthy mix of liberal and conservative participants. That’s the best the Republican Party can concoct in a last ditch effort to maintain control and continue their government “of the wealthy, for the wealthy, by the wealthy.”

  • Get out and vote

    To the editor:

    To the citizens of Brunswick County: Please vote.

    In a few days, we will be given the right to vote for the people to run our school system for four more years. We need to take a long, hard look at what has taken place the last few years and look for something better in the coming years.

  • Darwin or Design?

    By Robert A. Weathers, pastor

    First Baptist Church

    Guest Columnist

    Evolution. There. I said it. And my brain didn’t melt, the world did not disintegrate, and most importantly, I didn’t get fired.

    So why is it Darwinists think if they utter the word “creation” in the classroom their pristine reality will collapse and they will suddenly be branded as anti-intellectual?

  • Supports Gilbert

    To the editor:

    As a parent of children in the Brunswick County school system and as a graduate of the same, I hope voters of Brunswick County will take a good look at the choices we have for the District 1 school board race.

    Ray Gilbert has been the candidate that has consistently done things to keep the public informed, has been strong in the face of adversity and has the students’ best interests in mind.

  • Supports McIntyre

    To the editor:

    I am a transplant here from Robeson County. Fortunately, I not only know Mike McIntyre for his outstanding job in Congress, I also know him personally along with his family and the integrity and honesty instilled in him as a child and a young man growing up.

    I know how he was raised in church and the values and morals he stands for today. You can’t bring up a conversation on politics without people commenting on the great job he has done for his district.

  • Proper planning for parents, children can lead to safe Halloween

    The weather has finally turned and the chill of fall is at last in the air.

    Throughout Brunswick County, families have been busy transforming their homes and yards into frightful fun as they prepare for Halloween night. Store shelves are stocked with ghoulish decorations and an assortment of candy—everything from traditional popcorn balls, to chocolate bars and lots of eewy, gooey, gross things to delight taste buds.
