  • Hurricane forces recycling fair cancellation

    To the editor:

    Seaside United Methodist Church regrets that due to circumstances beyond its control, it has cancelled the Seaside Electronic Recycling Fair (SERF) that was scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 13 from 9 a.m. to noon at the church.

    People who wish to recycle electronic goods may drop them off at the landfill at 172 Landfill Road NE, Bolivia. There will be no charge.

    Seaside United Methodist Church thanks all who have recycled in previous events and hopes SERF can be rescheduled in the future. Please do not leave electronic items at the church.

  • Vote Benton for school board

    To the editor:

    Gerald “Jerry” Benton has a vision for success for all Brunswick County students. Jerry’s vision is to prepare each student with the tools necessary to be successful when leaving the school system either to college or to the workforce.

  • Drain swamp of Democrats and all their grandstanding

    To the editor:

  • Streetreach still assisting those displaced by hurricane

    To the editor:

    Current cleanup and restoration effects are still going on with Building Hope Ministries/Brunswick County Streetreach. We have been blessed to assist countless individuals and families. We are exhausted, as we are sure many of you are also.

  • Real-time disaster information network needed

    To the editor:

    As impressive as the state and county’s response to Hurricane Florence was, there is one area concerning public safety that appears to have been overlooked: the public need of real-time information on flooding, road closures and other hazards.

  • Thanks to Cooke for helping out during hurricane

    To the editor:

    A great big thank you to one of our county commissioners, Martin Cooke. While he was driving around Brunswick County assessing the damage to the county from Hurricane Florence, he saw my car stopped and came by to see if I needed help.

    This was a very busy time for all in this county and I want to say how nice it was of him to take his time and push my car out of the north exit of Sea Trail.

  • Community is blessed with caring people

    To the editor:

    Neighbors helping neighbors has reached a new level! Walking home, I approached neighbors talking on their driveway about their experiences with Hurricane Florence. I related my lot was loaded with tree debris. I had filled my drums just clearing my driveway and a small piece of lawn and was waiting for a lawn-care provider to finish the job.

  • Thank you to all WBHS evacuation shelter staff

    To the editor:

    With the approach of Hurricane Florence, I remembered what happened with Hurricane Matthew when people who evacuated couldn’t get back home. I decided to go by myself to the West Brunswick High School evacuation shelter. It was a very impressive experience.

  • Editor’s note on candidate’s letter deceptive

    To the editor:

    The Sept. 13, edition of the Beacon included ‘Editor’s notes’ following a letter written by candidate Marilyn Priddy and another written by her husband Rob Priddy.

    The editor’s notes refer to Mrs. Priddy as “running against incumbent Republican Marty Cooke for the Brunswick County Board of Commissioners District 2 seat as a candidate unaffiliated with a political party.” This is deceptive and a disservice to Brunswick County voters.

  • Actions speak much louder than words

    To the editor:

    In response to the recent letter to the editor, “Words matter,” I would agree Trump does not always act presidential with his tweets and public statements. The writer failed to mention the Democratic leadership has been just as vitriolic if not more so. A return to civility on all sides would be welcomed.
