Hello, Beacon readers!
Welcome, Beacon followers!
Some of you have sent us messages through this website or through the Beacon Facebook page, inquiring about who is on our editorial board. We just posted a response to the Who Are We? (or Who Are You?, if you prefer) inquiry on our Facebook page. The bottom line is that we would like to earn your trust and respect through our reporting, not through our identities. Our reporting will establish our credibility and reliability.
We can tell you, however, that we are a group of 10 people who represent a cross-section of the Southern Shores community. We live in Chicahauk and in the woods and dunes of Southern Shores, as well as on the beach.
Some of us own seasonal rental property. Some of us own small businesses.
Some of us have small children. Others have small grandchildren.
We come from many walks of life and are in different stages of life.
We are Republicans, Democrats, and Independents.
We are transplanted Northerners and homegrown Southerners.
The defining characteristics of our diversity could go on . . .
What unites us is that we have chosen to live in Southern Shores because we love it, and we would like to preserve its character, charm, and beauty for today and for tomorrow. We believe that in order to do that, property owners need to be informed about what’s happening in Southern Shores–from shore to shore and from north to south.
Please give us time to get established and to grow.
And, please, stay in touch.
Thank you so much.
Beacon Editorial Board, April 19, 2018
