MailCall for 11/25

November 25, 1998

"Yes, Mail Call. There was a good comment in Mail Call with one of the readers explaining to the citizens as to how a person could commit three bank robberies in 1989, 1990 and 1991 and be sentenced for 21 years and 9 months and be out of prison in 1998 to commit a fourth bank robbery. What he's missing is that this is our justice system! I'm the lucky recipient of getting the gun put in my face at a bank locally. I work at a bank and the person originally was sentenced to probably, I think, 15 years or maybe 20 years and he was out within 18 months. It isn't the law enforcement agencies, it's our local elected judges! So all I can say is that you need to quit calling Mail Call and start writing letters to state Sen. Don Munson and to the state congressmen that you want this nonsense stopped and these offenders to serve the sentences that they get. If they get 10 years, they serve 10 years. This nonsense of giving them only 10 percent of their original sentence is ridiculous. Thank you very much."

"I was real shocked when I was shopping one Sunday afternoon at a store in downtown Hagerstown. There was a clerk talking to one of the other employees of the store. I was waiting in line to be waited on and this clerk was talking about her children, I don't know the problem with her and her children but she made the statement that she could take her kids out of this world just as fast as she brought them in. This was so shocking to me and my friend. This was the first and last time for me to ever be in this store, so we laid our things down and left the store. I have this to say to this clerk, you don't have that right. You should search your heart and soul and be very thankful you have these children. There are those who would be very grateful just to have one and the way you talk, you're very lucky you have more than one. "




"I'm looking for a sewing lady. I wonder if anybody around knows of one? If you do would you please leave it in Mail Call? Someone to replace zippers, hem pants, things like that. Just some general patch work. Thank you."




"Well hello Mail Call. Four or five women and Ken Starr have taken a beating in the press. It has costs some of them involved quite a bit of money, however, the person really responsible for it all appear to be going scott free."




"Hi Mail Call. I was wondering if anyone knows where I can get a Bodie Lighthouse? Bodie is in North Carolina and it's about 7 or 8 inches tall. I've tried just about all the Hallmark stores and most of the other stores in Hagerstown but can't find one. If anyone can help me, please call Mail Call."




"I know you won't put this in Mail Call but I want to get it off my chest. What a very biased newspaper! I'm waiting for the 1998 Christmas in the South End edition to come out. I can't believe I opened up my paper and found an insert from the paper entitled 'Christmas in the North End.' Who cares? This town has always been biased to the North End. This is so ridiculous! I don't give The Herald-Mail any credit for this at all. What a biased town and I have never seen anything like it. You people really stink! I'm sorry and I know I'll never see this in Mail Call but I had to get it off my chest. What a joke this paper and this town is. We need to get a mayor elected who really cares. This guy is a joke, too! Come on, what a joke!"
