Letters

  • Vote out big spenders

    To the editor:

    What are grants? Monies allocated by government agencies for a specific project, granted either higher, or matching or less. Grants are your money collected through your taxes.

  • Trust officials?

    To the editor:
    Can we trust our elected officials?
    North Carolina legislators recently voted to turn down federal funds for the unemployed, and 70,000 North Carolina residents lost their unemployment benefits because of the actions of a few elected officials. Many of the same legislators voted to block the implementation of the Affordable Healthcare Act (AHA). Discussions about taxing social security are also a major concern for most middle-income citizens.

  • Use common sense

    To the editor:
    Ms. Theiss, who I am sure is a well-meaning lady, tells us in the last edition of The Brunswick Beacon that in 50 years she has never heard of a drowning on the South Jersey beaches because the lifeguards save all.
    In a quick Google search I found this link, www.southjersey.com/articles/?articleID= 13285, showing that eight have drowned since last Wednesday in South Jersey—three in the ocean and at least one when lifeguards were present.

  • Mayor seeks meeting

    To the editor:
    The recent mailed responses by the Sunset Beach council majority, Lou DeVita, Karen Joseph, Mike Williams and Wilson Sherrill, which conflicted with the public records in the Sunset Beach Taxpayers’ Digest, need to be resolved.

  • Another festival, another success

    To the editor:
    We have just concluded another very successful N.C. 4th of July Festival. With the largest crowds in recent memory, it was both an exciting time and a busy time for all of us. Thanks go out to the many volunteers who serve throughout the year on the festival committee planning and coordinating the various activities and events. Without them, we could not produce the quality festival that we all enjoy.

  • Determining justice

    To the editor:
    Looks like President Obama and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder have some work remaining.
    “Empathic justice” has not yet replaced “blind justice” in America, despite their arm-twisting and illegal conspiracies to turn a local incident that would have barely made the back page of most newspapers into a national racially charged incident with full-blown media coverage.

  • Word conjures pleasant thoughts

    To the editor:
    I feel compelled to offer another viewpoint in reference to last week’s letter to the editor, “Power of Words,” in which the writer is very uncomfortable by the use of the word “plantation” in the naming of some of our Brunswick County housing developments.

  • County responsible for protecting residents, visitors

    To the editor:

  • New motions will benefit Sunset Beach

    To the editor:
    At the June 24 Sunset Beach Town Council meeting, several motions were passed that do a lot to move the town of Sunset Beach toward becoming even more of a favorite place for citizens to enjoy.

  • Put a stop to animal cruelty

    To the editor:
    Wake up, Brunswick County! This type of letter needs attention. I’ve read about it before, and still nothing is done. I’ve lived here most of my life, and it’s happening as I write. I want answers.
