"To the Mail Caller who's writing a song about the County Commissioners called 'No More These Four'. I think that the song would more be appropriately titled 'No More These Five.' 'No more these five, no more these five, no more these five because my sewer bill is eating me alive.'"

"To the person who refers to the picture of the firefighter in The Herald-Mail without gear on. They should be made aware of that every task completed on the fire ground, whether it be standing outside with a hose or inside with a hose, it is part of the complete operation.

What should have been said was, 'Another dedicated volunteer firefighter responds to protect the lives and property of the citizens of Hagerstown disregarding his own personal safety.'"
