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:

"My husband and I are senior citizens and we often eat at a particular fast-food restaurant to get a senior coffee and senior Coke and every time we go to a different one, we get a different price. We never have that problem at one fast-food establishment so why can't they be consistent? We were charged 89 cents for a senior coffee the other night. We could have gone to a convenience store."

"I read an article in the paper about Nolan Ryan. He is a very famous pitcher and he owns a semi-pro team in Texas and he only paid $2.5 million for a stadium. I am asking why the Hagerstown stadium is going to have to pay between $12 and $15 million. I think that that the taxpayers should know this. Thank you from a concerned citizen that pays taxes."


"I have a suggestion for the city of Hagerstown, the local speedways, I am talking about Washington Street and Franklin Street. I would suggest you raise the speed limit to 30 and triple the amount of the fine for exceeding the limit. I don't know if this would work much. I think the city police need more public support to help them curb the speeders and reckless drivers in Hagerstown. If anyone has a better suggestion, call in."

"A trial about the Cuban child is ridiculous. There is no law that can keep him from his father."

"I can't understand about the garage at the hospital. The guards are there when the money is to be collected, but they are not there any other time."

"I was reading and I was really happy to see someone call in about the garage doors. I had the same problem, I wonder if they were the same people. They came to my house and I felt reluctant to let them in because they looked unprofessional."

"I want to know if anyone saw anyone take a bike from in front of High Street on April 23? It was on Easter Sunday, in the early morning hours. It was a 20-inch GT Performer. It was a $400 bike and I am offering a $50 reward."
