"I would be interested in knowing if the president of the Washington County Sportsmen's Federation and the other officers have been offered a membership in the new Izaak Walton League which is taking over the Woodmont Rod and Gun Club? It seems to me as though they are giving it all their support and there must be a reason for that because the remaining clubs within the Federation have not endorsed the takeover by the Izaak Walton League. Something doesn't smell right here."
"I just want to say that there is a group of us here in Washington County that think if your children are taken away from you for things such as neglect and abuse then you shouldn't be allowed to have any more children ever. They should sterilize you without a second thought and these persons shouldn't have a say in it at all and if you do happen to have another child before this sterilization takes place, it should be taken away from you at birth and not six months later when it also is abused and neglected and if it (the child) is abused or neglected, then the parent should be jailed without release. Think about it."
"The complaint about residents parking in visitors' areas at Potomac Towers is just the opposite at Stonecroft. Some visitors at Stonecroft park in the residents' areas. One visitor stated she would park anywhere she wants to and there's nothing that anyone can do about it. She's right about that."
"Unions cause more trouble than anything else. Our family has had too many unpleasant encounters with them. You UPS people better open your eyes to what they are causing. You are losing much needed wages and if it goes on long enough the increase in your pay and so forth will never balance out what you are losing. Also, why do the union officials refuse to let you workers see the contract or read what the management has on the table and let you decide if you want to accept it or not? I'll tell you why. Because the more they can get the business to pay you, the more they, the union officials, get. They're not bothered about you, only themselves. Can't you see that? I know this is true because I know some union officials and over the years have heard them make this remark."
"I'm all for the UPS on this strike. I just hope President Clinton doesn't get involved in it because it's between the union and the company. They don't want to get in it when the company mistreats the employees and that goes on all the time. Thank you Mail Call."
"Attention Funkstown. Before you annex any more land, find out what is going on. Ask questions before it's too late. There are more townhouses to be built, the blueprints have already been drawn up for 43 acres. Please open up your eyes."
"The local postmaster was extremely gracious not to blame the mail carriers for fouling up the routes and the sequences on where they are supposed to go and when on those route and he did too have an irate customer. I was as irate as they come."
"I found a bicycle in the Williamsport area and if anyone has lost one or had one stolen they can call me and identify the bicycle to me. My telephone number is 301-223-8907."
"Daily Mail staff writers, why don't you leave out all your gorey gossipy details when writing on an accident especially where there is a death involved? Can you consider the loved ones and friends of the ones that die and how they feel when they read your 6-year-old level articles? Grow up and leave the garbage out."
"I was riding through the little town of Chewsville last Sunday and I saw some fellows playing horseshoes. My car windows were open and what language they were using! If a state trooper would have been behind me, I think he would have given them all a fine for disturbing the peace."
"Once upon a time Jonathan Hager wanted to name Hagerstown Elizabethtown after his wife. I'm sure if Jonathan were around today, he'd agree that a name change is in order. We should call Hagerstown `Jackhammer Junction.'"
"This is to say that we don't need any of those big supermarkets in Clear Spring. You can keep them!"
"Why isn't more effort by law enforcement used to stop the car thieves and vandalism in the area? Cars are being stolen daily and no one knows where they go."
"The person calling Mail Call for automotive parts should try a salvage yard instead. Mail Call is a verbal junk yard."
"This is to the person who claims that farmers waste feed and want the government's help. The majority of farmers that I know would just as soon lay down and die than to ask the government for help."
"I'd like to wish my granddaughter Tia a very happy 4th birthday on Aug. 14. I love you, Nennie."
"I'd like to apologize to the people at CVS the other day for the rude, loud lady who came into the store. God bless the employees for putting up with her. It was more than I would have done."
