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

I hope with a new publisher at the paper it will come back out with the Monday paper and put more news and less sports in Saturday papers.

Some churches in our local area are closing their doors this year on Christmas Day. This is absurd. We go to church all year long to learn about Jesus, and we should be allowed in our churches to celebrate his birthday.

For people in nursing homes, a nice gift would be a subscription to the Washington Daily News and DVDs.

Can you get someone to come and get my Saturday paper and take it to the fish house?

God bless the three young men who stopped and helped the couple on their vacation. This was in Friday’s letters to the editor. It is so nice to hear good, positive news. God bless all three of you!

To the person who was complaining about paying 50 cents for the paper: Why don’t you subscribe to the paper and you will only have to pay 35 cents per paper. It is worth so much to me that I am glad to pay 35 cents anytime. Happy New Year, Washington Daily News, and thanks for a great paper.

I am trying to find a doctor that accepts new patients. Does anyone know of such a doctor?

As I read about and watch our schools racing to the top, I can’t help but be reminded of the vast improvements that the new math was going to bring us.

I just left the Living Christmas Tree presentation at the First Church of Christ, and it was absolutely wonderful! Remember, Jesus is the reason for the season. God bless you all!
