"With all the children that play around outside in the summer, do you realize all the diseases that they are going to get by playing with all this garbage that sits around, is the councilmen going to pay our children's doctors bill when they get sick and have to go to the doctor, because they played with this garbage that is left laying around the whole neighborhood? Mr. Bruchey if you want to keep our city clean by keeping the cigarette butts off the ground, well how about keeping the garbage off the ground and keep it twice a week."
"I notice that you asked for more positive calls. I was disappointed to see the criticism to all the parents who kept their child home, it's not helpful to the parents when they are belittled that way. My positive experience is my family took me to the Ramada for Mother's Day, it was the most incredible meal I ever had. The ice sculptures were a work of art. I suggest that if you haven't been there lately to go and check it out, because it was terrific."
"This is in regard about the person who called in and said that we are feeding into their fears. I would like to know a couple of things. First of all, these children at a young age, does not know what is going on, how is that feeding into their fears? Second, how can anyone claim that our schools safe, when just last week a suspicious package showed up at Boonsboro, where were the cops and officials when this package showed up?"
"To the person who said that we are feeding into their fears, are you one of those parents who are volunteering in school? My child is in high school and if she decides to stay home because she is afraid, I am not going to force her go. I wanted to know if you were one of those parents who just sit back and just saying that nothing is going to happen, then if something does happen to your child, you are going to blame yourself. These kids who have perfect attendance all the time and they go and miss school because they are afraid to go I hope that the board is going to do something about these kids who miss school, and not hold it against them because of their fears, it's not fair to them. Who cares about the test scores, I sure don't, I care about the safety of my child."
"I want to wish my mother Robin Smith a happy 45th birthday! Thanks!"
"I understand death classes were taught in Littleton, Colorado, are they being taught to our students here? Also, there is a hit list in our high schools, what is being done here? I would like to know."
"I am calling about Bob Borngesser WHAG-TV. If he retired, why don't he stay retired, his Viewpoint he has is awful. So please have him retire."
"I am calling to congratulate the paper on the article in Sunday's paper about homosexuality and coming out, it was an excellent piece. I think understanding comes from knowledge and this helps people to better understand the gay lifestyle, it's ashamed that Senator Mooney couldn't read the article."
"I was just in town for the jazz thing, please have it again, very soon."
"Everybody should go up to the Police Department and see the new carpet they have up there. Every complaint made against a city police officer is swept under it."
"What is this world coming to. God gave his life for us and now we are killing each other. He gave us the world and now we are destroying it. Does this make any sense. This is from a little kid's point of view."
"As must as I would like to admit this, I did vote for Mayor Bruchey and some of the new city councilmen. I am very upset with them right now. I can't believe that they tried to get rid of the Market Master behind closed doors, it was a dirty trick. I finally had a chance to meet her about two weeks ago, and found out some of the great things she is doing. I never seen the market and as many vendors before as I do now. I think Mr. Bruchey should visit the market like Mr. Sager did. It is ridiculous that we do not have $10,000 to pay a woman who does a great job part-time."
"I would like everyone to keep Erica Lovelin, the 18 year old girl who fell from High Rock and her family in their prayers for a quick and successful recovery of her. Thank you."
"I want to congratulate the MCI employees of the year and let them know that they did a great job this year and to keep up the good work."
"I think that more of the hardworking employees down there that do a lot of the jobs down at MCI, MCTC and Roxbury should be recognized also, not just certain ones."
