Sound Off, Oct. 26

Published 9:37pm Thursday, October 25, 2012

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

I disagree with the Wednesday Sound Off about needing grocery stores. That’s the one thing we do need. We have no choice. … We do have two Food Lions and two Piggly Wigglys. That’s the problem — no variety. … This area could use another different grocery store.

Attention voters: you can’t vote straight ticket for president of the United States. You must indicate which presidential candidate you are voting for.

Don’t even think about complaining after the election about who won or lost if you did not bother to vote.

Sound Off comments are screened for subject matter, clarity and length of message. Comments about private businesses (except the WDN) and some individuals are not allowed. On occasion, we cease publishing comments about topics that have been fully discussed in Sound Off. Call 252-946-2144 ext. 235 to comment, (30 seconds maximum time).
