"Here's a friendly recommendation to everyone who enjoys corn on the cob. Before putting butter and salt on the ear, take a sharp knife and slice each row of kernels from top to bottom. It won't take long, there's only 18 to 20 rows on an average ear of corn. This will make it much easier to eat, the flavor is greatly enhanced and most of the tougher outside of the kernels, which is harder to digest, remains on the ear."




"I'm working on some family history and I'm trying to find the children of Hannah and Orville Shank that lived in Hagerstown. The last time I knew they lived on Sherman Avenue and they had four or five children. My number is 301-790-2235."




"I'd like to call and thank the members of the Washington County Fire Police for standing in the rain on Monday at Huyetts Crossroads for several hours so the rest of us could get on our way. They did a fine job of directing the traffic and helping everyone out. It's volunteer work and I sure do appreciate it."

"Mr. Alexander, my husband found your case that contained a checkbook and CD ROMs, many CD ROMs. He turned it into the Bulldog Federal Credit Union on Yorkshire Road in Halfway."




"The City of Hagerstown is buying houses for $1 in order to fix them up and resell them and then giving tax breaks up to $6.8 million to the Centre at Hagerstown and who in the long run winds up paying? The taxpayers!"




"I just wanted to say thank you to whoever the parking meter reader was who not only helped me with my parking ticket because I mistakenly was not showing my handicapped permit but he also helped me in getting into my car. Thanks again."




"Like the City of Hagerstown needs to be able to buy up houses for a buck. Why doesn't HUD allow us citizens to purchase them at these low prices and fix them up for our own personal use? I would be more than happy to remodel a home if I could only purchase one. The City of Hagerstown shouldn't be the only one to benefit from deals like this. I'll pay $5 to $10 for the next one and HUD will make a killing on this sale. Please let me know when the next one is up for grabs. And I'm totally serious about this offer."




"Thank goodness Little League baseball is over for my son. He's been on the same team for the last three or four years and they treated him like dirt because he wasn't a coach's son or one of the assistant coach's sons. He was made to sit out and the newer, younger and much smaller kids got to play. And let me say that he's a very good player. He was at every game and ready to play. They didn't hesitate to want him to play if someone didn't show up, though. This is to all those coaches that do this to these kids. Back off and let everyone play, especially those in their last year. They don't stick it out this long to be on the bench. Coaches shouldn't be allowed to have their own kids on their teams. Someone should make this a rule."




This is to the person that called in about Rosie O'Donnell and Hillary Clinton on gun control. As for the first lady, she's a politician, therefore talks out both sides of her mouth. As for Rosie O'Donnell, please check your facts before making such an allegation. She has stated time and time again that she is not against owning hand guns, she is simply lobbying for trigger locks and for manufacturs to put them on. Don't you think way too many children die every year from accidental gun shots?"
