Mail call

"This is to the taxpayers of Washington County. I see that the Board of Education is hollering for more money. Well, they want more money to give to the teachers so that they can drag the schools down further and I don't think that they need more money. I think they need better teachers and administrators. The problem isn't money, it's the unions."

"I was just calling to wonder why businesses who have parking lots in back of their buildings use the limited space parking on East Washington Street right around the corner from the Alexander House on the Square?"

"To the woman who says it's a father's duty to help support their children. You're right. The key word here is 'help.' Everyone seems to forget that the woman also helped to make these kids. Some of these fathers are getting taken to the cleaners because their wife wasn't happy with their life. I pay 75 percent of my children's support. How is that fair? I didn't force her to have kids or leave with someone else. The woman wants the kids but they still want their ex's money. And by the way, I don't drink or smoke but she does. I wonder who's paying for that?"

"Hey single guy, I didn't know that there was a fellow in Washington County that had a little bit of class, culture or intelligence much less one that could read a book. I did know that they could look at a book that had pictures in it though, so it's odd to see this here in the paper. I truly didn't think that there was a man like that in Washington County. Eventually you're doing the same thing I'm doing - hanging out at all the wrong places. I have a lot of lady friends and we all know what a dentist is and what a hairbrush is for but we find that the fellows are mainly interested in themselves and they don't care about someone else's feelings much less what they look like. So if there's a single guy out there that does have good qualities I need to keep looking too."

"I'd just like to say to my aunt and soon-to-be-uncle, have a happy wedding."

"To the woman who said kids are more important than all that stuff. I raised my son without child support because they said they couldn't find my ex-husband which is strange because I was able to find him. I gave the boy everything that he wanted and he grew up to treat me like dirt. And then he moved with his father. I remarried and now we can't pay our bills because he pays so much child support for his kids that don't even want to see him. From what I've seen these days, kids are worthless. You're lucky if you have a good one. Let me hear you say kids are all that when yours are grown up and do nothing but cost you money and heartache. I'd never have another one. I don't even want grandkids, we'd probably have to pay for them, too."

"To the person that says homosexuality is a choice. I have one question. Are you a homosexual that chooses to be a heterosexual? Just wondering."

"Good evening Mail Call. In reading the articles on the Lund Farm I have a question. What real estate firm handled the transaction of that sale? Thank you."

"This is to the person that called in about homosexuals. Homosexuals do choose their lifestyle. Homosexuals do chose their lifestyle. They do chose this just like a drug addict chooses their lifestyle. They've been warned and the taxpayers shouldn't have to pay for their rehabilitation. I'm not a homosexual or a drug addict, I'm just a normal person."

"To all the people that read Friday's Mail Call and got offended over the welfare call and the weasels. If you weren't so guilty you wouldn't have gotten offended but if the shoe fits, wear it."

"Well, thanks to our energizer Commissioner Ron Bowers, we have another issue to look at and it's the school board's five elected members using little children to take political messages home. Shame on the elected school board and to those for Ron Bowers, the energizer commissioner."

"This is to the pregnant lady who is bragging about having a medical card and her husband paying the rent. Well, I'm 26-years old and I had heart failure three years ago and almost died and they will not give me a medical card because they say I make too much a month, which is only $600. Yeah. And half of it goes to my rent so I mean, just because you're pregnant doesn't mean that you should get a medical card. I also take $100 a month in medication. How am I supposed to do all that?"
