Mail Call for 11/1

November 01, 1999

"Call me at 301-842-3088 and leave your number for an easy way to have a nice wedding and I will try to help you."

"All the people who got their seat belt tickets need to stop crying and just put their seat belts on. Even if the officer didn't see you with it off, all they have to do is pass it along to the officer that did see you without it on. I have been there, too. So just put them on."

"Oh my word, people, I was so thrilled and excited. Please everyone try to get out to the mall and see the tall white and blue man on the roof dancing around. I think it is one of the neatest things I have ever seen. You can't help but smile. It is worth your time just to go out and see it. Thanks a lot and thanks to Valley Mall."


"To the person who complained about trick or treating on Thursday night instead of Friday. You stated that your kids were up too late and had to go to school the next day. Our neighborhood has trick-or-treating from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Mom, when did you ever put your kids to bed before 7:30?"

"My husband is 78 years old and there is a picture of him in the June/July issue of the Cracker Barrel. He would like to get a copy of it. It is when he was down at San Mar and the kids were picking berries. If anyone has a copy of that he would be glad to pay them for it. His number is 301-733-9510."

"I would like to comment on the parking lot at the Valley Mall. First of all I feel that they need to have more handicapped parking spaces. I was there and I have a handicapped sticker and there was only two or three spaces and they were filled by people who didn't have any handicapped stickers. If I wasn't in such a hurry I probably would have went and found the security and had them removed. Secondly, I think it would be a good idea if they would number or letter their parking rows. It would make it much easier to find or remember where you parked your vehicle. This would be especially a big help to the senior citizens, especially when they are packed."

"I am calling in response to the person who keeps getting the hang up calls, I would say that I get them as much as three or four times a day. I want it stopped also."

"To the person who keeps getting the hang-ups from the telemarketers, get yourself a Caller ID and anytime it comes up 'unavailable,' don't answer it. You will never have to answer another one in your life."

"Trick or treat is on Thursday night because Friday night there is so much traffic. It is done for the children's safety."

"I see where it is time for the food bags and people now are really going to be asking for help. I think that none of us would mind helping the people who really need it. But if anyone drives around Hagerstown and Washington County and see all the 'Help Wanted' signs. Why don't a lot of these people get off their lazy duffs and go out and get a job, so they don't have to depend on other people's help?"

"I am a voter and a taxpayer, I read both papers, so thank you County Commissioner Swartz for fighting for the water and sewer debt. You have moxy, keep it up no matter what the delegates in Annapolis say or the other four County Commissioners. If it was in Allegany County, it would be a go, right, Casper Taylor?"

"If anyone has shelled walnuts, would you please call 301-790-3239."

"I would like to congratulate the South High freshmen team, keep up the good work, guys. I hope they keep the same coaches the whole way through. Even for the varsity, that would be great. We would have a winning season then."

"It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that the Mike Gallagher show on the radio is a fluke. The people that have called in have already been screened and chosen before they called into the show."

"Let me see if I have this straight. Under the proposed budget before the County Commissioners, the Board of Education's money would be severely cut, but yet the animals can be executed within three days and as they are dying, they can hear the shouts of the people in the new stadium about a half-mile from where they are losing their lives. Nice touch!"

"There was a time when Washington County didn't have a public works director or a county administrator. The County Commissioners handled everything. We should go back to that policy now. The County Commissioners should eliminate the county administrators and public works director. Look at the thousands of dollars that would be saved there. They are the two problems and why this county can't get out of debt. They are big-time spenders that want to spend money for this and that. When this County Commissioner group took office, we were $144 million in debt and now we are way over that in debt. It is about time that the commissioners took control and eliminate excess employees that come in with these high-priced things that they want to do."

"The county taxpayers can't afford a new stadium. We are in debt enough."

"What is the meaning of .com?"
