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

I wanted to comment that if education budgets need to be cut, administration should be cut and not teachers. The main mission of education is to instruct. So, the front line of the mission should not be cut first.

Which building was the Reita movie theater located in?

We need to put guard rails or fences up along the roads where there are deep canals.

I believe there is a boat in Norfolk we can borrow if we can’t get the boat in Wilmington.

What we need is a little more common sense. The state is cutting its budget, the county is cutting its budget, the city is cutting its budget and the school board is depressed and cutting its budget. So, why would you want to add five more days of school? That would be five more days of bus drivers, lights, water, heat and other expenses. There is just no common sense.
