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

Can you please print the heat index in the paper?

Here is just a thought: How about putting the police station at the old Family Dollar? That looks like a good spot.

Is there any reason we can’t have the horoscopes back in the paper?

I see in Friday’s paper you say there were some big names in the paper, but I didn’t see any big names.

About those geese: They are a danger to drivers and traffic. They need to be removed.

In general, why do family members try to talk you into doing things you do not want to do?

There are cigarette butts from one end of the waterfront to the other, particularly by the Chamber. I noticed they are everywhere by the pavilion where the band played for the 4th of July. They will not deteriorate into the Earth and I am sure they are terrible for trying to plant anything. What is the answer? Should we fill pots with sand and perhaps smokers will put the butts in them. They are very unsightly and make it appear that we don’t care about our waterfront.

To the person who received a speeding ticket in Smallwood: If speeding is not a crime, what is it?
