  • Liked story about tobacco farming

    To the editor:
    It was a very interesting article (Sept. 15 Brunswick Beacon) about the Grissett family and the process of farming tobacco. There are many of us who have relocated here and are not familiar with the local families and their ways of livelihood, but are curious to know more about this area we now call home and have grown to love. Reading about the Grissett family and their history in Brunswick County gave us an opportunity to appreciate the community we have adopted and the people who have always lived here.

  • Thanks to those who have served

    To the editor:
    It seems we are living is an atmosphere where we, the citizens of this great country, are quick to criticize our elected officials. It’s the American way. Whether it is national healthcare or a town park, if we are against it, we want the issue put on a ballot for a vote.

  • Supports Carolina Shores candidates

    To the editor:
    I will be voting Nov. 8 in the Carolina Shores races for Walter Goodenough for mayor and Bill Brennan, Joe Przywara and John Russo for commissioners because I want to see our elected officials work constructively and courteously together, and I know that they will do that. Meanness and anger do not help us move forward as a town, and it certainly makes attending meetings unpleasant.

  • One year later: Catching up with the Real Army Wife of Brunswick County

    Last fall, the Beacon brought readers a story of a young woman preparing for the arrival of her first child. What would be a nerve-racking experience for any expecting mother was amplified by the fact that this young woman’s husband was gearing up to deploy to Afghanistan as she prepared for the baby’s arrival.

    Writers will tell you when we are moved to write, we write—often without knowledge or understanding of a direction.
    Sometimes we write because we have to. Other times we write because we are driven to.
