Today's Opinions

  • Disagrees with Fennell's claims

    To the editor: I am a registered Republican and am appalled to think the party endorsed a candidate for state Senate who knows so little about the issues. The Beacon allows candidate Bettie Fennell free rein to take Sen. R.C. Soles to task for refusing to agree to suspend the rules of the Senate regarding the Annexation Moratorium Bill.

    Will she vote to suspend the rules? Why even have rules then?

  • Cabana issue isn't over with

    To the editor: This is in response to those who have had enough of the cabana issues. We suggest you don’t read the letters, because this debate is not going away even though “it is over.”

    We were disappointed about the decision to ban cabanas. We have owned our home here for more than 12 years and though we used a cabana when our family and friends visited, we never left it on the beach overnight.

  • Bradshaw thanks Beacon

    To the editor: [Regarding the story about Adam Bradshaw’s autopsy report published on www.brunswickbeacon.com] I can’t wait to read the rest of the article. I’m glad you are bringing up the fact drugs were not involved. Anyone who knew Adam knows he did not use or have anything to do with drugs.

    We also know he was not involved in anything illegal.

  • Agrees with book's view

    To the editor: Pastor Andrew Moyo has recently written a powerful book titled, “Working the Works of God.”

    One part of the book was of special interest to me. Pastor Moyo grew up, became a Christian and pastor/evangelist in the country of Uganda. He took a leading part in a great revival there in the mid 1990s.

  • Young people should show more respect

    To the editor: Generally speaking, I read the editorials with an open mind. It seems the majority of them are from readers complaining about one thing or another (politics or some issue to do with schools).

    My remarks are in response to “Reward teachers” submitted by Brenda Davis and “Remembering to respect elders” by Michael Darby. I have been a subscriber to the Beacon since April 1989 and feel that these are two of the best editorial articles in all those years.

  • Upset about animal rules

    To the editor: Re: “Agreeable animal welfare changes” article by Laura LewiseeTo say I am shocked and heartsick does not begin to express the views of myself and many others I know who are concerned about the welfare of animals.

    In my opinion, members of our state General Assembly, the Brunswick County Board of Health and Brunswick County Animal Services have taken giant steps backward.

  • Medical clinic provides worthwhile services

    Someone who hasn’t been feeling well for months visits doctor after doctor, finding none who will accept him because he has no money or insurance coverage.

    He finally finds a free clinic about 30 miles away from his home, where a family nurse practitioner examines him, realizes what’s wrong and prescribes the medicine he needs to get better.

  • Drug court, policing programs good for county

    For many petty criminals, life on the wrong side of the law is often spurred by bad choices directly associated with drug and alcohol addiction.

    Sending those violators directly to jail, without rehabilitation plans, including a strong drug and alcohol recovery program, can do little to help many who, when out on the streets again, return to the same behaviors that put them in jail.
