Today's Opinions

  • Responds to creationism and schools debate

    To the editor:

    I have never written a letter to the editor before but I felt compelled to respond to the Oct. 9 letter about creationism in school. I am a Christian also and while I see their point of view, I can only say, with all due respect and love, I don’t agree.

    The Bible says in Isaiah 55:10, 11: “For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from Heaven, and returneth not tither; but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater.

  • Country could sink from proposals

    To the editor:

    Your choice in November is simple. Obama/Biden want this country to continue as an assisted-living asylum. Go sit on the front porch and rock away your remaining years in peaceful bliss, leaving everything to them.

    The liberals already have the federal government managing your educational system, the environment, food consumption and car manufacturing, and now the financial and mortgaging industries. Next is your medical health. You are too stupid or demented to adequately care for yourselves.

  • Why let the Republican legacy continue?

    To the editor:

    With so much talk about the upcoming election, I couldn’t help but wonder why an election is necessary. Consider the following:

    Our government was established with three branches: executive, legislative and judicial. Basically, the executive is the presidency, the legislative the Senate and House of Representatives and the judicial is the Supreme Court.

    Republicans have controlled the presidency for 20 of the past 28 years.

  • We're headed in a bad direction

    To the editor:

    I have forgotten the exact date, but in mid-September Barbara Stanley (no relation) had a letter published in The Beacon concerning the Bush administration and the awful mess he has gotten our country into.

    I would like to congratulate Ms. Stanley. Her letter was informative. She knows what is going on in the world and the people behind all the trouble our world is in. I wish all Americans knew as much as she does.

    Our country is bankrupt, and the dollar, or should I say Federal Reserve Note, is headed toward being worthless.

  • Join anti-annexation group

    To the editor:

    In response to Joseph Pasulka of Southport—www.fairannexation.com (FAC) is the site you should join.

    At present, the site lists all North Carolina representatives who have or have not supported HR2367 bill for annexation moratorium.

    Sen. R.C. Soles (D) of District 8 refused to sign the request to Sen. Rand to send HR2367 annexation moratorium bill to the Senate floor. You can be mad at the mayor, and the both of us can be mad at Soles.

  • Effects on veterans far reaching

    To the editor:

    In a few short weeks, we’ll have a new leader for our country and perhaps a new hope for getting out of Iraq.

    For nearly six of the eight years George Bush has been president, we’ve been at war. Hard to believe, isn’t it? We’ve done such a good job of ignoring it.

  • New senior center opens

    Brunswick Senior Resources Inc. (BSRI), in collaboration with Faith Community Chapel on Sunset Harbor Road, Sunset Harbor, opened an additional center at the Chapel Fellowship Hall on Oct. 1.

    The program is named for Ellie Reilly who was recently killed in an automobile accident. For many years Ellie had advocated for the program. She knew of the impending opening before her death but did not live to see it.

    The center operates Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and, among other program features, will provide a nutritious meal.

  • Just another day’s work, sort of

    There’s a first time for everything, and a journalist’s job is no exception.

    For the most part, my Mondays are the same week after week. Last Monday turned out to be different, which was a welcome change.

    I drove to Wilmington in hopes of covering Sen. John McCain’s local arrival and subsequent rally downtown. I made it to the airport in time to have my cameras and equipment swept, which was about an hour and a half before he did.
