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:

"County Commissioner Bert Iseminger should have changed from Republican to Democrat instead of the Independent party. He sure has that tax and spend policy like the Democrats. Some of these guys just can't find the fact that every budget that was ever submitted and painted fat. When are our leaders going to understand that homeowners, in some point in time, need some relief in taxes and not added taxes? Senior citizens who have no children in school continue to pay the brunt of education cost."


"This is to Mr. Blenckstone. Go ahead and sell the Suns. If you fans want to watch baseball, go watch Little League baseball. The hot dogs and fries are cheaper."

"Mr. Blenckstone, see you later. Little League, Pony League, all free to watch."

"To all the human activists people just calling in. It's stupid. We will bomb whoever we want to."

"I would like to know why the state of Maryland can afford to give $70 million to a professional football team to move from Cleveland to Baltimore, but they can't give the people here in Western Maryland 4 or 5 million dollars to build a new stadium for the Suns in Hagerstown. We did not need that football team to move to Baltimore. They got $70 million just to move there from Cleveland and that doesn't include the other $300 million they spent for the stadium. This great governor we have now and the former great governor that you people elected into office, it doesn't seem to me that they are doing very much for the people of Western Maryland."

"What are Mr. Mooney and Mr. Shank going to do since the legislature is off for the summer? It's not that they ever worked for a living. I think we need a summer job for these youngsters."

"All those refugees and people in Kosovo who are being pushed around, how come they don't get out their guns and defend themselves from the government?"

"Now that spring is here, people will be outside cleaning up their properties. Please keep an eye out for two small leather credit card wallets. One of them had credit cards, which have been canceled and the other with pictures. These pictures are very important to me, they cannot be replaced. They can be found anywhere between Halfway Manor Apartments and Noland Village. They were stolen from me in December. If found, would you please contact Mail Call."

"This is to the guy who wrote the paragraph last Wednesday in Mail Call. I think the Yankees should be listed under T-ball and the Orioles should be in big bold letters on the front page."

"I wanted to say that the only reason the Yankees have been on the front page is because they have been playing the Orioles for the past couple of days."

"I think they need to consider building a nascar track in Hagerstown, instead of a new stadium. One race would draw more of a crowd than a whole season of baseball."
