Mail Call for 4/17

April 17, 2000

"You know things have to be going wrong when you have construction work happening at night. I heard a jack hammer one night. Come on, City Hall, I know this work has to be done and I know that the repairs are necessary, but why this late at night when people are trying to sleep? What is going on up there, Mayor Bruchey? What are you trying to do? It is such an inconvenience, it is such a nuisance. What is going on with these people and what is going on with this world?"




"In response to the person talking about people who rent and are taken advantage of by landlords. If they would pay their rent on time and pay bills when they are due, maybe they wouldn't end up in court having their wages garnished. Believe me, judges have seen and heard it all when it comes to people who think they can do what they want to do and think they don't have to live by the rules. I think judges are very fair so don't knock them just because you didn't get away with ripping someone off. How do you think landlords feel when they spend thousands of dollars to renovate a house and make it nice for someone to live and have someone come in and wreck the house, steal appliances that was left there for their use, tear up the carpets and leave with owing rent, etc. and expect to get a security deposit refunded? You kind of people make it hard for the honest people who pay on time, because when we have a bad experience like this, we are very cautious about putting money back into these places."

"I understand now that white tea is better for you than green tea. Can someone explain to me what white tea is?"




"More than a month ago, someone questioned about the Central Chemical Superfund cleanup money that was supposed to be used here in Hagerstown. How come no one at the newspaper saw fit to investigate this? After all, it is $12 million or are we just going to add Central Chemical to our Washington County fiasco list, which now includes the abandoned paper recycling plant, the deep-in-debt sewer plant, the weed-infested Fairground and the light plant, just to name a few?"




"In regards to the people who keep calling in about the bus driver. I say, hands up and high five to the people who are supporting the bus driver. The people that are running their mouths, should get on the bus, drive a bus and learn what it is like to drive a bus and see if they can do a job like that. I commend the bus drivers for the jobs that they are doing."




"I have some decorated wreaths that hang on the outside of my house and are made of grapevines. I also have artificial plants hanging around the house. I can't keep the birds out of them. They are nesting in the flowers and making nests behind the wreaths and tearing the wreaths apart. What can I do to keep the birds out of there?"




"I am unaware of anything going on with the Emma K. Doub bus driver. However, to have feet forward under the seat in front of you and talking in whispers is only respect to the person driving the bus. It is not only your child, but many children on that bus. It doesn't seem like a bad idea at all. After all, the driver does have a lot of lives at risk for it to be any other way. That is the problem with the kids today, no discipline at home, the parents then start to complain. We need to get back to the basics, I am sure that even the teachers can tell when and when there isn't any discipline in the home."




"To the person inquiring about the United American Insurance Medigap Program. I have been with them for about five years now and I am well pleased. I have not had to pay any Medicare supplements since I took the policy. They are very reliable."
