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

Many thanks for the Department of Transportation notice on debris cleanup being offered in Beaufort County (to those) who live outside of town limits, even though it was two days too late. Please get in touch with whomever you know in the DOT to find out if they will accept my bill in cleanup costs before we found out from the Daily News that debris would be cleaned up.

Beaufort County had a countywide travel ban until noon on Sunday after the hurricane to clear the trees and debris. Apparently the ban did not apply to Belhaven as we were swamped with truck traffic and sightseers from sunup to sundown. There must have been lots of people with nothing to do except get in the way of cleanup.

I am very thankful for my neighbors who helped me clean up my yard.
