    A.D. 30- 33: “Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.” (Luke 6:38 NKJ)

  • The power is with the people

    To the editor:
    Do we, the citizens of this nation, have the right to abolish our country’s government? The answer is we most certainly do.
    This right to overthrow our country’s government is defined and guaranteed in our country’s founding documents, the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States.
    It is the right derived from our nature as free human beings endowed by our Creator with unalienable rights, among which are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

  • Thanks for story about church

    To the editor:
    Many thanks to Laura Lewis for the wonderful article she wrote on the church (Concord Methodist Church) and choir in the Feb. 7 edition.
    We were elated to see it on the front page. We enjoyed Laura’s attendance.

  • Movie debut should be another good tourism draw

    This week the movie “Safe Haven,” based on a novel by best-selling author Nicholas Sparks, lights up the big screen.
    Shot on location in Southport and in other nearby areas, we hope this movie means more good things are in the future for Brunswick County.
    For many years Brunswick County has been a good draw for television and moviemakers. The moderate temperatures and welcoming community have made it a good place to set up shop for the extended hours of filming that go into million dollar productions.

  • Dentist is a blessing to many

    To the editor:
    We are blessed and have so many people in Brunswick County who have a heart to help people and never get recognition, mainly by their own choosing.
    I read with interest about local dentist Dr. John Madison, who reached out to pay-it-forward and help Joyce Davis, a cancer patient with a painful dental problem. He took away the pain without thought of monetary consideration.

  • Send the cats somewhere else

    To the editor:
    I recently read a Brunswick Beacon article about feral cats released on Holden Beach.
    A couple of things caught my attention: 1. Of nine cats placed on the island, six are missing in action. 2. The cats were brought in to eradicate rats and so far, that is working, according to officials.

  • Streetreach wants to help

    To the editor:
    Brunswick County Streetreach makes a promise to people in crisis. We will do all we can to help them improve their lives. We will try to the best of our ability to use local resources and to provide overnight emergency shelter during the coldest months of the year (Nov. 1-March 1).
    Behind this promise is a dedicated board of directors, our president, churches and many volunteers who fuel the mission of our organization.

  • Thanks for helping BSRI

    To the editor:
    I would like to thank everyone who stepped forward with their generosity and support and answered our plea for donations that made it possible for Brunswick Senior Resources Inc. (BSRI) to purchase four much-needed Meals on Wheels trailers.
    With the addition of these trailers, BSRI will now be able to deliver additional services and resources to seniors in Brunswick County.
