EDITOR’S NOTE: One of a newspaper’s essential duties is to provide a platform for community members to have their say, share ideas, frustrations and joys. We offered that for many years with our Sound Off, allowing community members to voice concerns anonymously. We ended Sound Off last year and many of our readers Sounded Off in disagreement. We heard you. And that’s why we’re bringing this feature back with a few changes.
We ask you to share your thoughts, opinions and comments via email at email@example.com, by snail mail at P.O. Box 1448, Dunn, NC 28335 or by notes left at our office at 99 W. Broad St., Dunn. Comments should be limited to 100 words or less and may be edited or cut to fit. Not all Sound Offs will make it into print.
As always, the opinions expressed here are those of anonymous readers and do not reflect the official policy or opinions of The Daily Record or its staff.
Nurses doing a great job with vaccines
I saw your article about [the Harnett County Health Department] up there in Lillington, giving the shots. ... Those people up there in Lillington are great. They’re so organized. They are so kind. Those nurses, up there, they are wonderful to everybody. They are actually getting people in earlier. Everybody is being courteous. They’re doing a great job. ... I wanted somebody to know just how wonderful those people are up there.
Get involved – clean up our roads
I see Dunn has been putting out yard signs along our town about get involved — improving the city. They need a sign that says “we need to clean up the trash along the roadways on Red Hill Church Road, Turlington Road, N.C. Highway 55 and Ashe [Avenue].” These roads are a disgrace to our community and with many surrounding citizens and waste management companies using the Dunn Landfill, it seems there is no one responsible for cleaning up the trash, tires, couches, etc., that are dumped or blown over in yards and along the road.
I would like an update on the following, if possible: Rhodes Pond, the Alphin Brothers property and when – if ever – Long Branch Road will reopen to the public. Thank you.
