CALLED DISGUSTING POLITICS'
Demos Assailed For Replacing
Board's Founder With Party Leader
BY ERIC CARLSON
A Brunswick County Library
trustee on Monday blasted county
commissioners for removing Repub
lican Gene Pinkerton from the li
brary board he worked to create and
replacing him with a former chair
man of the Democratic Party.
"! think it's perfectly disgraceful,"
said trusts* Margaret Harper. "It's a
disgusting thing that has happened.
I believe we've sunk to mighty low
depths when something like this
happens in Brunswick County.
"Gene Pinkerton has been a good
board member," she said. "He's the
one who's responsible for getting us
the money to start this library sys
tem. It's pure politics and I don't
like it. He's been a fine member.
And that comes from a good
Democrat to a good Republican."
Harper made her comments im
mediately before the library board's
regular monthly meeting was called
to order Monday night. She asked
that the remarks not be included in
the board's official minutes.
The statements also came before
the arrival of fellow library trustee
Don Warren, the chairman of the
county commissioners who nomi
nated former Democratic Party
leader William A. Stanley Jr. to take
Pinkerton's at-large sea? on the li
brary board last month.
Pinkerton was nominated for re
appointment by Commissioner Jerry
Jones and supported by fellow
Republican Donald Shaw. Stanley
won the seat with Democrats Tom
Rabon and Wayland Vereen joining
Warren in a party-line vote to oust
the Republican from his library
It was Pinkerton, as a commis
sioncr in 1992. who suggested that
the county use SI. 5 million in re
serve money to start a four-branch
library system. As the library
board's first chairman, Pinkerton
headed the committee that began
construction of two new libraries at
Oak Island and Lei and and the reno
vation of the Shallotte and Southport
Pinkerton also recommended the
creation of the nine-member board
of trustees to oversee the library sys
tem. Members of the original panel
were selected as representatives of
all areas of the county for their pre
vious involvement in libraries.
Three of the library board's char
ter members were from Shallotte.
while two resided in Southport. One
trustee each was selected from
Lcland, Yaupon Beach, Winnabow
and Boiling Spring Lakes.
Harper accused the Democrat
commissioners of upsetting that geo
graphical balance in the name of po
"Not only are we losing a good
member but we end up with five
members from Shallotte." Harper
said. "It doesn't represent the whole
Library board Chairman Don
ERgert and members Warren, Stanl
ey, Marie Harrison and Pearl Stanley
all reside in or near the Shallotte
Pinkerton was attending his last
mee'ing as a library board member
Monday night and did not respond
to Harper's comments. But he ap
parently expected the Democrat
commissioners to replace him.
At the library board's May meet
ing, Pinkerton asked his fellow
trustees not to suggest his name to
the commissioners for re-appoint
mcnt along with Harrison and Ralph
Frazicr of Winnabow. At the urging
of other board members, Pinkerton
agreed to serve if re-named to the
board, but he remarked that "politics
being what they are, I may not be
Harrison and Frazier were unani

same commissioners meeting at
which Pinkerton was replaced.
In other library board business
Monday night, the trustees voted
unanimously to re-name the West
Brunswick Library in Shallotte. It
will be called "The Rourk Branch of
the Brunswick County Library" in
honor of the late Dr. Malcolm
Henderson Rourk and his wife
Marie Foscue Rourk. The couple
donated the land for the library and
Mrs. Rourk served the old library
board as an active member and fund
raiser for many years.
The board also voted to elect new
officers. Anne Hines of Yaupon
Beach was named chairman, while
Frazier was selected to be vice-chair.
Library Director Maurice Tkte will
continue her duties as secretary to
