Today's Opinions

  • Revised hospital offer a good one

    No, it’s not perfect. It’s far from perfect, in fact, but we think county commissioners moving forward with the bid process with Crown Management’s revised bid to purchase the old hospital is a step in the right direction.

    After submitting their initial bid of $1.5 million last year and then withdrawing that bid in April, Crown Management has once again come to the table to negotiate to purchase what was once Brunswick Community Hospital and the land on which it stands. Crown officials plan to convert the hospital to a psychiatric care facility.

  • Thanks for helping with Relay to Life

    To the editor:
    The Rivers Edge Sundowners Relay For Life team extends its appreciation to the many local business owners, neighbors and friends who contributed to our fashion show fundraiser on April 19.
    Special thanks to Sunset River Marketplace, Calabash Garden Tea Room and Victoria’s Ragpatch, each of whom made the event possible.
    Thanks to you, we exceeded our expectations and raised more than $4,500 for a wonderful cause. We could not have done it without your generosity.

  • Promised Land belongs to Israel

    To the editor:
    Many times in Scripture, the Bible clearly states that God gave the Promised Land to Israel. Other countries were punished for taking away Israel’s land. Author David Brennan details in his books, “The Israel Omen I & II,” how catastrophes of extraordinary magnitude have hit the U.S. every time an American president has led new and/or successful “land for peace” negotiations with Israel.

  • Democrats will destroy America

    To the editor:
    Watching C-SPAN regurgitate congressional hearings on abortion is enough to not only make someone deathly sick, but to wonder where we are and how we got here. Is this America in the year of reason and common sense or did we somehow move backward and adopt Hitler’s method of making the kind of race he wanted with the easiest expedience?

  • Doesn’t like flag attire

    To the editor:
    In the May 31 edition of the Beacon, there is a photo of a woman and her dog, both decked out in the red, white and blue of the flag of the United States. At first glance, it looked so very “patriotic,” until you see that the woman in the photo, wearing a pair of shorts configured from our flag, could be construed as covering her derriere, whether standing, or worse still, sitting. I find that completely objectionable.

  • Baptist church has long history

    To the editor:
    The new Oxford Dictionary of World Religions defines Bible Belt as: “The southern states of the United States of America, where the mainstream of Christianity is characteristically fundamentalist, stressing the literalism and inerrancy of the Bible.”

  • Liquor, liquor everywhere but not a drop to drink

    In case you haven’t heard, President Barack Obama and Co. are headed to the ever-important swing state of North Carolina for the Democrat National Convention this September.

    Charlotte will play host to the DNC beginning Labor Day, and it turns out some local lawmakers are concerned about their resources during their visit to the Tar Heel State.

    It’s not security resources they’re worried about. Their venues are big enough. And there are more than enough restaurants and hotels to give Charlotte a nice little end-of-season economic boost.
