"I am calling about the person who said that the Board of Education is desperate for drivers. That is not true. I applied for the job and I was told that they only needed substitutes for when people call in sick. You could not get a route for at least a year."

"The parking situation at the Maugansville Post Office, why is the parking lot always filled up when there is nobody inside? Also, parking being the way it is there, you should not read your mail in the car."

"We want to congratulate Nikia Barton again for making straight As this marking period. We love you, Nikia. Love, Mimi, Pappy, Daddy and Betty."


"Is there a children's dentist out there, I have no insurance and I would have to make payments instead of paying it all out at once. Please help, I am very interested in a children's dentist."

"To the woman in Mail Call that objected to men going into health food and craft shops. Could you please explain why you object? I know men are a little bit weird, but they have rights, too."

"To all who are always complaining about the bus drivers, we are always short on drivers. If you think you could do better and change the system, we welcome you. Don't judge us until you experience the drive."

"It cost me $26.95 a month for AOL Basic Internet Services. Plus is cost me $95 for a new jack, (if you need it). Then it is going to cost you another $21.95 a month for the telephone bill for unlimited use. So basically you are paying about $50 a month for the Internet use. If you have any other questions, you can call Mail Call."

"To the person who wanted to know why cab drivers double park. Why do they double park, because a parking spot might be a half a block or so away. When was the last time this person rode in a cab and had to walk a half a block to their home? How about that 80-year-old woman that would have to walk. Double parking is a fact of life when it comes to taxi cabs."

"To the person who wanted President Clinton and Gov. Glendening to punish the criminals and not the law-abiding gun owners. You are just dreaming. They have no intention of doing that. Their intentions are the same as Hitler's was, take over the country."

"To the retired person who was looking for a computer and the online services. If you could leave your number in Mail Call, I can get back in touch with you. I do have a second-hand computer and I could get you on the Internet for practically nothing."

"To the lady who said about the men and children at the specialty shops. Would you like some cheese with your 'whine?' Get serious, do you have kids, lady?"

If you go to Wal-Mart, you can get a WebTV for about $150 and they are just like a computer, you can go into the chat rooms, and search for things or whatever. Online service is only $19.95 a month. So that might be cheaper than a regular computer."

I was talking to one of the construction workers and he made a comment about getting phone calls from people complaining about the noise at night time. Well I told him I would rather them do it then rather than close down the street completely in the daytime, because that would only aggravate people more because they would have to detour. I would rather them make the noise at night rather than have to detour two miles out of the way to get to where you are going. He said that he wishes more people would feel the way that I do."
