Mail Call for 12/28

December 28, 1999

"For all the people who are complaining about the traffic pattern at Valley Mall, my wife included, if you don't like it, don't go out there."

"If any of you moms or dads suddenly saw their child with a big stuffed Taz. One was stolen off a porch on Jefferson Boulevard, just before Christmas. A reward is offered for its return."

"I think those obnoxious boom boxes should be restricted during the Christmas holidays."

"Some of us may not appreciate Christmas at all. My gripe is that out of 364 days of the year, I am invited to a family dinner at Christmas, only on Christmas. When I do go there on Christmas, they expect me to bring a present."

"It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out Mr. McClure, the way he is catering to the people who don't want to do anything in this town. He is going to run for mayor of Hagerstown, but I think he is going to lose."


"My name is Richard and I am a motor carrier for The Daily Mail, I would like to say thank you to all of my customers from Smithsburg to Cascade and from Md. Route 77 to Md. Route 191. Thank you and Merry Christmas and may God bless you."

"It is Dec. 24 and my husband found a 1999 United States uncirculated coin set in the middle of the street behind the old Super Shoe building on Mill Street. If you have lost this, please call 301-739-0146 and if you can identify the names on the packages, we will be glad to give it to you."

"I have never seen a bale of hay worth $300. It must have been a big one."

"It is about noon on Christmas Day and the Community Rescue just came to our neighborhood to pick up an older gentleman who lives across the way. I would like to say thank you to all the volunteers and all the paid professionals. Especially the volunteers who get nothing out of it except the joy of helping their fellow man who does things like give up their time and comfortable room and presents to come and help the rest of us."

"I want to wish the staff and faculty at the Alexander House and anyone involved in keeping the building spotless. You know who you are. This is apartment 1010 wishing you a Happy New Year 2000. I am excited about the new renovations to the lobby area."

"We want to wish our customers in the Pinesburg, Ridge Road and Kemps Mill area a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Thanks for the cards and Christmas gifts, God Bless you from the Speakers."

"I want to wish everyone in Washington County a merry Christmas and a happy new year, except for the developers. I want to wish them a massive recession and high interest rates. That is one way to control the uncontrolled growth in Washington County."

"Thank you, Mr. McClure, for getting those parking spots on East Franklin Street. You responded so quickly and I really appreciate it. Keep up the good work. I don't care what anyone says, you are doing a fine job."
