  • Wants to know more about interlock device

    To the editor:

    Recently, my partner had to have a Breath Analyzer Ignition Interlock Device (BAIID) installed in his vehicle due to a DWI. 

    While I in no way condone his actions, I have several concerns about these devices.

  • Thanks for help at fire scene

    To the editor:

    Tuesday night, Nov. 30, I received a call anyone would hate to get. “Your business is on fire!” I grabbed my keys and raced to Capt. John’s as fast as I could. It took me about 10 minutes to get there. 

    When I arrived, there were at least a half-dozen fire trucks and emergency service vehicles on the scene. I would estimate there were about 40 firefighters swarming the building like bees from a hive. Amid all the chaos, they worked like a well-oiled machine. 

  • Yes, Virginia there is a Santa Claus

    Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus

    Eight-year-old Virginia O’Hanlon wrote a letter to the editor of New York’s Sun, and the quick response was printed as an unsigned editorial Sept. 21, 1897. The work of veteran newsman Francis Pharcellus Church has since become history’s most reprinted newspaper editorial, appearing in part or whole in dozens of languages in books, movies, and other editorials, and on posters and stamps.

  • 2010: The year of the voter and the year their voices were heard

    This past year was a year of a great many things.

  • Know the truth

    To the editor:

    In December 2009, Rich Cerrato, author of the Tax Payers Digest, filed a complaint with the State Board of Elections alleging that Gary Parker, Sunset Beach town administrator, councilmen Len Steiner and Lou De Vita and Mayor Ronald Klein violated North Carolina campaign statutes during the 2009 election campaign.

    The State Board of Elections, after an extensive investigation, has found “no evidence of campaign finance law violations.” 

  • Thanks for help with toy run

    To the editor:

    The 2010 Brunswick Toy Poker Run was canceled due to rain this past Saturday but we still had more than enough chaperones for the 80 children we shopped with. 

    I was concerned how a handful of helpers were going to shop with that many kids but 20 minutes before the children arrived a steady stream of familiar faces from motorcyclists and classic car folks came pouring in to help us.  

    I was touched by their commitment to help despite the weather. God Bless you all! My heartfelt thanks goes to you.

  • Thanks to The Brunswick Beacon

    To the editor:

    I again what to give a heartfelt thanks to The Brunswick Beacon for supporting Smart Start of Brunswick County, as well as other nonprofit organizations throughout our county. 

    Over the past several weeks, I have inundated The Brunswick Beacon with photographs and information regarding recent Smart Start activities. Each and every submission has been published for the community to read. 

    Thanks greatly for helping us share our successes.
