Mail Call for 6/12

June 12, 2000

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 response to the person about the parking permits on Broadway. Good Luck! I had an argument with the city already. I am trying to get parking permits in the 100 block of South Potomac Street, down where the residents live, not near the library, but the other end. They refused to do so. They are too dead set in their ways. They won't listen to what anyone has to say. They could care less. All they want is that money from the meters. They could care less about the residents."


"Fifty students graduated from Conococheague Elementary on Tuesday, June 6. Many of them with honors. WHAG was represented there. Can't The Herald- Mail recognize them also?"

"I was wondering if anyone was at the Boonsboro Carnival last week when two thugs literally beat and kicked this kid to the ground. He had to be carried away on a stretcher and taken to the hospital because he was bleeding. Can anyone tell me what ever happened to that boy? I cannot believe that I never read anything in the paper. That was really serious and I can't believe it was not in the paper."

"I know you have a budget shortage, but dropping Head Start is wrong. These youngsters want to go to school and they want to learn. A better idea is to make 12th grade optional. Then the ones who want out, can take these service jobs that we cannot fill. The 12th grade teachers are more expensive than the Head Start teachers. You will save money in the long run."

"Does anyone know when registration signup is going to be for the Williamsport junior football league team?"

"I was wondering if anyone had any problems with their accelerators squeaking in their 1991 Ford Aerostar minivan. Please put your feedback in Mail Call."

"I wanted to thank Councilman McClure for standing firm on the stadium issue. You will be well rewarded one of these days, probably next election time."

"In regards to the headline in Friday's Herald-Mail, 'David Blenckstone,' sell it, sell it, sell it."

"To the person who was looking for the Iris root. If you would call 301-223-5958 and leave a message and your number I'll get back to you. I have a lot of them."
