• What happened to personal evangelism?

    To the editor:

    Famed Christian Evangelist John Guest said, “Modern personal evangelism is like in Mother Goose, Little Bo Peep has lost her sheep and doesn’t know where to find them. Leave them alone and they’ll come home, wagging their tails behind them.” He said the church just assumed the lost would find their way to the church eventually. Even Little Bo Peep eventually went after those lost sheep, apparently.

  • Backroom politics continue in Sunset Beach

    To the editor:

    Taxpayers and the Beacon have questioned Sunset Beach Town Council’s historic “manipulative processes” to get what they want. The resignation of Dr. Weiss is just another example.

  • Keeping one’s distance from Sunset Beach

    To the editor:

    So happy we located in Sunset Ridge and not Sunset Beach.

    I assume the beach folks do not want visitors. We are not visitors but could not have considered moving to Sunset Beach due to the town criers on council.

    Folks, grow up and act like adults. You should not be running a town.

    Stay away from Sunset Beach and see how they like not having business. I would never consider owning a home there. Nuff said.

  • Doing a double-take on Dems’ top 5

    To the editor:

  • Sunset Beach may need a bigger board

    To the editor:

    The article in The Beacon of Feb. 7 shows how terribly messed up the town council of Sunset Beach has become. It’s a shame!

    At one time, this small town was run by very helpful and concerned adults. What happened? It seems the wrong people have been voted onto the town council and with a small five-person council, it is too easy to form a three-person coalition of my-way-or-nothing majority.

  • Trump gains outdo others

    To the editor:

    Just great that a writer (scorns) Trump for allegedly destroying the Republican Party, forgetting the useless war-mongering policies of Bush and the terrible candidates of RINOs McCain and Romney.

  • Democrats have already transformed

    I’m challenging any reader to intelligently prove my comments and facts below wrong without throwing out the “racist, bigot and misogynist” label.

    I was a JFK Democrat for 40 years, leaving the party in 2010 when it became a leftwing liberal progressive socialist America-hating party. Don’t believe they hate America?

  • Tolerance and respect missing in current conversations

    To the editor:

    I lean a little to the left on some issues, a little to the right on others and down the middle on others. I am blessed to have family and friends, probably 30 percent of whom lean far left, 20 percent who lean far right and 50 percent who walk the line down the middle of the road. Something we all have in common is a mutual respect and our diverse opinions. We can enjoy lively discussions without name calling or ill feelings. I have been enlightened on many issues by the special folks.

  • Sunset Beach dredging comes at a cost

    To the editor:

    Anyone who doubts current and future Sunset Beach residents will eventually pay for any new dredging needs to study the history of Wrightsville Beach, Shell Island and Masonboro Inlet. Last year it was a $30 million program paid for by taxes on restaurants and hotels in New Hanover County. This year a $4,000 to $5,000 assessment has been proposed to many residents in the area. Assessments, bond issues and taxes have been ongoing since the 1960s.
