Editor's note - Please be as brief as possible when calling Mail Call, The Daily Mail's reader call-in line.

Mail Call is not staffed on weekends or holidays so it is best to call Mail Call weekdays at 301-791-6236.

Readers are welcome to leave their recorded message on any topic they choose, but some calls are screened out.

Here are some of the calls we have received lately:

"Hello, Mail Call. I was calling about the full-service gas station. Try Eddie's in Williamsport. They have full service."

"Hi, Mail Call. I'm just calling to see if I can get some advice. I've been married for 18 years and I just found out my husband is having an affair. I've been a housewife for those 18 years. I do have a high school diploma but I don't know where to go from here. If anyone has any comments or advice please call in and let me know. Thank you very much."


"It's no doubt that if O.J. Simpson would run as a Democrat for governor of the state of Maryland, he would win by a landslide."

"Yes, I'm reading Wednesday's Mail Call and this person wanted to know about a handicapped permit. You get them through the Department of Motor Vehicles and thank God you can walk. If you're in good health, praise the Lord!"

"I'm calling about the full-service gas stations. The Texaco Station on Pennsylvania Avenue or up on Washington Avenue are full-service stations. Try them. Thanks."

"Hi. I'm calling about the front page on the Kids Voting. There are more schools in Washington County than just Bester. Everything in your paper about schools show Bester Elementary School. I'm a subscriber of the paper and my kids go to Sharpsburg. Try taking a picture of them once in a while."

"Try Longmeadow Exxon on the Leitersburg Pike for full service. They're very efficient with their work and they're very friendly people. Give them a try. Thank you."

"Thank goodness the sewer king got his final flushing!"

"Happy 3rd birthday on Nov. 6, Debbie Gay. We love you, Mom, Scott, Sharon, Justin and David."

"Yeah, there's a gas station between the Delmar and Huyett's Crossroads right along U.S. 40 coming out of town that has a full service gasoline pump. The handicapped and the elderly can go there for full service. Thank you."

"Thank goodness the election is over. The campaigns are over and the smearing is over. Now we can get back to the regular news on TV and interesting articles in the newspaper instead of all that junk."

"Murray's in Williamsport has full service. Go check them out."

"Happy 1st birthday on Nov. 7, Joseph Richard Wolfensberger. We love you, Joey. Love, Uncle Scott, David and Justin."

"Yeah, to the lady calling about the full service stations. Well, Eddie Pike has moved up to Maugansville Amoco and he still gives the same fine service that he did on the Dual Highway. He's a very pleasant man. Thank you."

"To the baseball fan, I hesitate to say Orioles fan, but to the baseball fan that called in about the Yankees winning the World Series and even though they won 125 games, you think that because of expansion the Yankees are just not as good. Well let me tell you this much, it seems to me that the Orioles had a pretty good lineup themselves and they stunk up the place. So I can say this much about the Yankees, they have a World Series trophy, the Orioles don't. In fact, neither do any of the other teams in baseball."

"Happy 11th birthday on Nov. 8, David Starleper. We love you, Scott, Mom and Justin. Hope you have fun at the Ravens game on Sunday."

"To the person who wants to hear about the New York Yankees in the paper all the time. Tell them to move to New York. Go Orioles!"

"Yes, hello. I'd like to know Washington County's position on building any shack in one's backyard as well as adding a homemade carport that makes the property look like it comes straight out of a shanty town? This depreciates all the surrounding properties. The neighbors have made calls to the office of the building inspector but so far nothing's been done. Thank you."
