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

I wonder if the editors of the Daily News realize that census-taking and redistricting every 10 years is still part of the U.S. Constitution.

Beaufort County is a Tier 1 county, one of the poorest, and, according to the EPA, we are now the sixth out of the state’s 100 counties for toxic substances. We shouldn’t return one county commissioner or city councilman to office.

I just talked to a couple of companies. I think one of the major reasons that Beaufort County has such a high unemployment rate is because a lot of people can’t pass the drug test.

Concerning the letter to the editor about Francis: That was the most heartwarming story. Thank God for the family like yours and how lucky Francis was blessed for her last two good years.
