"We need to get some specialists in this town. We have lots of optometrists but we hardly have any eye doctors. If you need an appointment you have to wait for a couple of months. That's not the only thing, other areas where we need a specialists we have like one person or two people. We ought to try to get somekind of good medical people in this town."
"Hi, I'm calling in regards to a problem that I'm having with the State Roads Administration and I would like some problems resolve. What it all boils down to is along Alternate 40 in Boonsboro, coming off of South Mountain, there are no school bus stop signs. I have fought the problem for two years and the bus driver has also fought the problem. It's pretty bad when you are paying state and county taxes and nobody out there will do a darn thing to help you. If you would please print this in the paper and have some action taken. I would really appreciate it. Thank you very much."
"Good morning. My comment refers to two letters to the editor in The Daily Mail on Sept. 16. I commend these excellent, well written letters by Judy Warner and Thomas Fiery. I do hope people will be interested enough to go back and read these letters. Whatever your political affiliation the letters speak to us as Americans. Thank you."
"This is to Tim Rowland. Tim, if you will dress up in a Civil War outfit and go to jail, I'm referring to the charity which jails people, I will post a $50 bail to get you out. Just don't sue me if you get a heat rash. I love your column!"
"Hi Mail Call. This is in response to the lady whose daughter turned down the application to volunteer as a candy striper. After reading what you had to say, I realized how intelligent your daughter is without even knowing her. That's why I think she should reconsider her decision to volunteer. The Washington County Hospital needs people like your daughter who are smart enough to know a bad thing when they see it. Better yet, they need smart people period."
"Hi Mail Call. To all the people who drive with car phones and try to talk on them please make sure that you know you are risking other people's lives when you talk and drive. Half of you cannot concentrate on the conversation and drive a vehicle at the same time and one day someone's really going to get hurt really bad from people who think they can drive and talk on the phone. Three times this week I have almost been hit by someone talking on a car phone and trying to drive at the same time. Please, you are not the only driver out there and they say that you always need to watch the other driver. Well, you definitely need to watch the one talking on the car phone. Thank you."
"Hello Mail Call. I need some help. I need some information from any of your readers as to who I can go to contest an electric bill. The town in which I live says that they can only go by the meter reading. According to the meter reading my kilowatt hours are three times the amount used for the previous month this summer. We have not used any more electricity than the previous month and they said that they can only go by what the meter says. I need to carry this protest or inquiry one step further. Who do I contact? Please respond in Mail Call. Thank you."
"Mail Callers are complaining that Ken Starr spent over $40 million on a report that is only about sex. They are wrong on two counts. 1.) The report is more than just about sex and 2.) It did not cost $40 million. It was $4.4 million. The other millions of dollars is on other things. The best is yet to come."
