Published 12:10 am Wednesday, August 3, 2011

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

I think it was time for Mr. Belcher to step down. We need to consider term limits. New people, new blood, new ideas.

I wish to thank the nice deputy sheriff who got me out of a tough situation. This deputy made a difference in my life.

Why isn’t there something on the sidewalk downtown explaining that Blackbeard fired cannonballs into the houses on Water Street?

Thank you, Bartow Houston and Paige Davis, for talking about Kugler Field. What a wonderful place of memories.

I like what you’re doing with the WDN. I’d like it more if you’d give me back my TV schedules.

Does the recent redistricting of the Beaufort County area keep the Washington Daily News in the district with Bill Cook?

(Do) the movement of Sound Off to a new page and the gradual reductions in Sound Off messages mean the eventual end of Sound Off in the Daily News?

Thank you for the article on Beth Batchelor. She and her family are my neighbors. Not only is she a great athlete but one of the finest young women I have ever known.

With reference to the headline in Friday’s paper, please print what quid pro quo means. I am an uneducated lay person and I do not know what you are talking about.
Editor’s note: Quid pro quo is Latin, meaning “what for what.” In essence, something is given for something received.
