Mail Call

March 18, 1998

Mail Call

"OK Mail Call. Hey out there everyone, wish Mr. A.P. Keefer a joyous 75th birthday on March 17. Thank you kindly."




"The question if the week is - Do you think the State of Maryland should buy Deep Creek Lake from the power company - AKA: the taxpayers?"




"On Saturday, March 14 a large brownish dog ran out in front of my car on Virginia Avenue in front of the Cumberland Valley Animal Clinic. There was no way of avoiding the accident and I circled around the block and when I came back the dog was not there. I checked the Cumberland Valley Animal Clinic and Park Circle Animal Hospital but unfortunately they were closed. I called every vet in the yellow pages but no hurt dog was brought in. I even called the Sheriff's Department and reported the incident. I'm very concerned about the welfare of this dog and anyone with any information about this matter can reach me at 301-745-4881. Thank you."

"Yes. I'm very much against all street drugs but I think if the Herald-Mail can publish one person's picture in the drug raid in Williamsport they should have had everyone's picture that was arrested. I think this is unfair of the Herald-Mail to do this although everyone needs to be caught and prosecuted. Thank you."




"The latest news from the White House is that our fearless leader Clinton has 45 lawyers who are now being paid with taxpayers money. I think you good Democrats should open up your checkbooks and write a nice fat check for his legal defense fund. He's only about $8 million in the hole. I sent back my '98 Clinton scandal-a-day calendar to the company. I complained that there wasn't enough space to record the Clinton scandals at the rate of about 2 or 3 a day. They were very apologetic and sent me a refund."




"Hello Mail Call. I'm the one that called in about the paperback books. I paid up to $6 a piece for some of them so I'd like to get at least 2 for $1. I'm on a fixed income and every little bit will help. Thank you very much."




"Hi. I'd like to know who screens these calls. I've called in several times on important things but here I read in the paper, 'mom, Mike, this is Brandy and I just want to tell you that I love you' and 'tell Baby B happy birthday'. Well, who wants to read these kinds of things? Something's gonna happen here cause I'm gonna stop the paper plus plenty of other people too. I know you won't print this but still I send in important things, at least I think they are, but you never print them. So what's the problem here? I think that they should have to pay to get their things put in there. Thank you."




"Mothers, if your daughters want to become interns tell them to pick a hospital instead of the White House. It certainly paid off for Miss Willey to campaign for Clinton and give money to the Democrat campaign and to volunteer without pay to work at the White House. She ended up accusing the president of groping her in the Oval Office. Fifty-six percent of Clinton's votes came from women in '96. Little did those women know that they elected a fox in the hen house."




"Yes. I'm calling about I-81 from Washington Street exit out to State Line. Both sides are really a disgrace to anybody that lives in the State of Maryland. There's a dead deer that's been laying out there since last Sunday and today's Monday, a week or better and that deer is still laying there and part of the fender is still laying there too and there's trash on both sides of the highway and around the exits. It's ridiculous and we got all these prisoners and the County Commissioners can't do nothing and the State Highway can't do nothing. I think the governor ought to come up here and take some money away from the State Highway and get rid of some of their people and put some prisoners to work. Thank you."




"Yeah, I just saw a back page ad in your newspaper for a $20,000 Bingo Bonanza for the Halfway Volunteer Fire Department and I was just curious as to why they need to raise so much money for that fire hall? Have you seen the monument that they've put up over there with all that money that's coming into that place? I can't understand why they need so much money and where's it really going?"




"Yes. You know, I don't understand it. I see so many crazy things wrote in the paper in Mail Call. It doesn't make sense at all and I try to warn people about the crossing guards and how early they are leaving on South Potomac Street in front of Bester Elementary and down on the other corner of South Potomac and Memorial Boulevard. I just sit in my window and watch these children going home by themselves at 3:50 and there's no crossing guards around. If anything happens to any of these children I will tell the Board of Education and the police that I've tried to warn people and they just don't do anything about it."




"This is to the person who made the comment about the kids at St. John's and Prospect Hall. They're back in school. Thank you."




"Hi. This message is for my little phone bunny. Please call me, I really miss you."
