Today's Opinions

  • Dealing with clear and present dangers in Brunswick County

    I have observed an increasing number of dead deer along side of the rural and city roadways of Brunswick County lately.

    Deer crossing our roadways into the path of oncoming cars and the hunters lurking in the bushes waiting to shoot them pose clear and present dangers to nearby residents of Brunswick County.

  • Readers think creationism should be considered with evolution

    To the editor: Re: last week’s letter titled: “Board has other issues to deal with.”

    I agree that the BOE has a lot to do these days but I still believe the subject of creationism should be addressed. You mentioned you find “nothing objectionable in the theory of evolution.” I have several problems with it, including the fact it says all things were created out of chance; that is, no intelligent creator (i.e. God) was involved. I have a big problem with that.

  • Kudos for opinions

    To the editor: Kudos to Walter Carolus of Ocean Isle Beach who did the research. He enumerated over a dozen Christian scientists who uncovered and proved principles in physics, mathematics and chemistry used today, underscoring the fact science and Biblical faith are not mutually exclusive.

    And more kudos to Mr. Fanti, also a scientist, who did not sit idly by while his high school son was fed politically correct pablum.

  • Concerned about area's future

    To the editor: Recently, the Carolina Shores Property Owners Association met to determine the future of the Carolina Shores Golf Club. The community was presented with four options:

    1) Ask for acquisition by Brunswick County.

    2) Ask for acquisition by the Town of Carolina Shores.

    3) Allow the current owner of the property to sell and have it developed as residential property.

    4) Purchase of the property by the POA and keep it as a golf course.

  • Upset about gas situation

    To the editor: I am absolutely flabbergasted and disappointed some gas stations have chosen not to buy gasoline during this current period of high prices.

    I have a vacation home at Holden Beach and had planned to drive there on Thursday, Sept. 25, for 10 days with friends and relatives. We have now all decided not to make the drive since we cannot be sure we can obtain enough gasoline to return home.

  • Thanks for help at night

    To the editor: On a terrible night (Aug. 17) filled with rain and fog, we were befriended by an “angel of mercy.”

    We were traveling on U.S. 74 heading to our trailer in Supply. Our home is near Charlotte. Suddenly, our car overheated and we pulled off. No flashlight or anything. Then, we saw a set of headlights approaching us on the side of the road. I thought it was the police, but it wasn’t.

  • SAFER grant is important

    To the editor: I read with much disappointment your editorial in the Sept. 11 issue regarding the Shallotte leaders concerns about accepting the SAFER grant. Such shortsightedness is indefensible. Have they already forgotten about the disaster in Charleston, where the deaths of firefighters was due in part to having too few men riding on their trucks?

  • Why should Rep. debate?

    To the editor: I would like to put my 2-cents worth in before the election.

    In a letter to the editor by Bob Hibbard of Ash in the Sept. 18 issue of the Beacon, titled: “McIntyre refuses the democratic process,” Hibbard mentions McIntyre refuses to debate Will Breazeale. Why should he? All Breazeale wants is for Mike to draw him an audience.

    I say let him get his own audience. Keep up the good work, Mike.

    As to Shirley Babson’s trip to the Republican National Convention, it sure doesn’t take much to inspire her.
