"I would like to congratulate the mayor and council of Smithsburg. Eventually there's more behind this story than ever will be known. I feel it's a personal thing and a political thing that Mr. Bowers lost his job and now Mr. Tyler is behind a desk, which I can understand. He did make a mistake. I know Mr. Bowers and have worked with him in the past and I know many, many people in Smithsburg and they feel that he's done a fantastic job for the children and getting the drugs and helping with everything that he could possible do. You name it, he's done it. Everything has been good. He's made a couple of minor mistakes but I think he should be given a second chance but he's apparently not going to be. I see that his job is being advertised in the newspaper. Just sounds like the mayor and council are having a picnic over there. I don't feel that you all should be re-elected either when the time comes. I wish Tommy all the luck in the world on his next job and stick to your guns and take care of yourself."
"This is a resident from Smithsburg and we are fed up with the mayor's possessive power. She has possessive power of firing people that we dearly love in this town. Our officers we want back, her we want to go. This town is fed up with this mayor's possessive power. She's forcing her power just to destroy our police department and the people in this town are fed up. We want to know just what kind of officer would come out here to this town to put in for these jobs and would go against their fellow officer? We want what we had back. We don't want any other officers out here. We want what we had back and what we want is for the mayor to resign. We are fed up with her possessive power."
"One more comment about Smithsburg. In today's paper the driving force behind Tommy Bowers campaign Sherry Owen, says she has received seven traffic tickets including one for driving on expired tags from Deputy Tyler and none from Bowers. No wonder she supports Bowers, I would too if I couldn't drive."
"Hi Mail Call. I have a few comments. 1) To Kathleen Parker and her article on Princess Di, you go girl! 2) To Joseph Lynch and his problem with tailgaters. Do what I do, hit your brakes. If they hit you it's their fault. If they don't, it's a sure way to scare the heck out of someone. 3) To the comments made about my hero Dale Earnhardt falling asleep here's my solution - get the man some competition!
"I agree with the caller that called in the other day and said the kids and pets are taking over North Gate. The residents using out of state license plates as well as several county employees drive the wrong way on One Way Court. It used to be nice."
"After last Wednesday night's rain storm does anyone out there still believe the clouds are being seeded?"
