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

Subject: Kugler Field. Many of us in Beaufort County can say “memories are made of this” when we recall the “Y,” Charlie Bell’s, Miss Carver’s, The Saint Moritz, Radio View Grill, The Night Hawk, Webb’s, Park View drive-in theater and, of course, Kugler Field.

Let us pray that Hurricane Irene stays away from the East Coast.

Shame on you for the editorial cartoon “The Pulpit Bully” on Aug. 23. God still reigns.

I am complaining about the gas prices in Aurora.

Was it really necessary to call everybody about the hurricane, which is still three days off, at 12:30 in the morning? Let’s use a little more common sense.

I did not appreciate being woken up at 12:23 a.m. Wednesday with a phone call from Beaufort County emergency management. Couldn’t this have been done during the day? It was very stupid.
