December 29, 1999

Editor's note - Please be as brief as possible when calling Mail Call, The Daily Mail's reader call-in line.

Mail Call is not staffed on weekends or holidays so it is best to call Mail Call during the week. The Mail Call number is 301-791-6236.

You are welcome to leave a recorded message on any subject, but some calls will be screened out.

Here are some of the calls we have received lately:

"In reference to the article in Mail Call on Dec. 24 about poor paper delivery service and not tipping. I agree 100 percent. If service is poor, call The Herald-Mail and do not tip and they will get it corrected. I am a carrier with approximately 90 customers ranging in service from 1 to 10 years and I am proud of my service. This is the type of service I give, but yet 60 percent of my customers don't tip or even thank me for the good service in the past ten years."


"I am calling on behalf of the residents of Potomac Towers in regards to lack of heat in their apartments. The temperature registered 62 degree in the apartment of an elderly relative over the holidays. The dining room on the ground floor was warm, but the residents don't live there."

"I am calling about the National Geograpic Millennium Special that was on the third week in December. I was very disappointed in this when they said that the Earth started with a big bang."

As a taxpayer I was very disappointed that the health department gave in to a smoker. It is a health hazard to even be close to a smoker."

Hello, I'm calling to comment on the article in Mail Call. I have just finished reading Mail Call this Monday, Dec. 27, and I'm reading the one that wishes to wish her husband Steve a Merry Christmas and all that gook. Mail Call, why do you print this kind of stuff? They can go somewhere else and pay for it."

"To all you smart individuals down at the city of Hagerstown, you ran the crows out of downtown Hagerstown. It is ashame that they all came up to Marshall Street School and mess all over the ground up here and in the West End. What are we supposed to do with them? Come on guys, let's have open season. Put the air cannons all over the city, not just in downtown and the North End, get rid of them everywhere."

"A leather coat, still in the box, was found on Reynolds Avenue on Dec. 26. Leave your number in Mail Call to claim the jacket."

"Could someone tell me why the Christmas tree at the corner of Dual Highway and Cleveland Avenue was not decorated for Christmas this year?"
