Sound Off, Oct. 12

Published 8:50pm Wednesday, October 10, 2012

Sound Off highlights anonymous, brief takes on the news offered via telephone by Daily News readers.

What happened to the coupons in the Sunday paper? You have to buy a Greenville paper in order to get coupons. Does the Washington Daily News not put coupons in its Sunday papers anymore, or have I just been missing mine?
Editor’s note: The companies that distribute coupons through newspapers determine which newspapers they use. That decision, usually, is based on the population served by a newspaper. Some companies don’t place coupons in newspapers with small circulation numbers.

Washington and Beaufort County have the answer to all their financial woes. All we need to do is call TLC, The Learning Channel, start a new reality show here called “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.”
