"Citizens of Hagerstown, it's time to take Hagerstown in a different direction. It's time for us to be out of the real estate business and start putting taxpayers' money where it's best made good. It's time to send Steve Sager off to the private sector and let him see what earning a living and paying taxes is all about. Vote for Bob Bruchey, he's a new direction for Hagerstown."
"I really believe that if Ron Bowers wasn't a union member himself, he would have voted right along with the pack. He just had to save face."
"What I'd like to say is that Carolyn Motz in the April 9 paper, bottom of the page, front page naturally, it says 'Airport doing its part to make county soar.' Does she really mean to make the county 'sore,' because the way the County Commissioners have been going lately, it's more likely 'sore.'"
"After some of the recent legislation enacted by our guardians and protectors, I mean lawmakers, in Annapolis, I did some investigation and found some more unsafe practices that they are going to try and outlaw in the next session. Not washing your hands after using the restroom, crossing the street before looking both ways, mowing the grass in sneakers, brushing your teeth less than two times a day and trying to pet a strange dog. Forget the home rule, it's time to consider seceding."
"We enjoyed the Pam Tillis/Diamond Rio concert at The Maryland Theatre. We were glad to see a good crowd at this excellent show. We were disappointed that there was nothing in the newspaper following the concert. It would be good to hear more positive things about The Maryland Theatre."
"How do you make dried flower arrangements?"
"I'd like to have a question answered. You take an article in your morning paper that's on the inside and then you blow it up and put it on the front page of The Daily Mail. It's not new news, it's old news after you've read it once in the morning paper. You blow it up and put in on the front page and make it a feature story. Nine times out of ten it's a story that we're not interested in anyhow."
"In a recent press conference Hillary Clinton stated that she and Bubba didn't own a ranch in California or a summer house in Kennebunkport, Maine, but they were just plain family and they didn't have all these luxuries. The truth of the matter is that she and Bubba lived in public housing previously in Arkansas and now Hotel 1600, Pennsylvania Avenue where they accept money for people to sleep in Lincoln's bed. I guess when they vacate Hotel 1600, they'll live in a trailer camp where Paula Jones used to live before she married a millionaire and sued Bubba."
"In response to the Mail Caller's question about when the sewer project starts in the Paradise Homes area. I urge any interested party to contact County Commissioner Ron Bowers. He's the sewer king of Washington County."
"Why don't you people of Hagerstown get real and let Bill Clinton and his family alone for awhile? Look in your own closets and see if you don't have some skeletons in there that you don't want people to see and maybe you'll leave him and Hillary alone for awhile."
"To the Democrat pinhead who is so proud of the two percent decrease in the Maryland income tax. I get a bigger rebate on my credit cards than that. The budget is balanced every year mandated by Maryland laws so forget about taking credit for that. How does it feel to live in Republican Western Maryland? What makes Democrats hypocrites is that they were offered a federal tax cut by Senator Dole in the last election but choose Bubba instead. You got cheated and you know it!"
"I can't believe it when I hear the governor and other members of the General Assembly boasting about the 10 percent income tax cut. For me it will mean a savings of about $1.58 per month in 1998 which is just about the price of a cup of coffee and a day-old donut."
"Does anyone know the scientific name for a County Commissioner?"
