Mail Call for 8/1

Mail Call for 8/1



"Thank you, Judge McDowell and Frederick Attorney Aleshia Elliott, for your continued investigation into the improper placement of many special needs students in Washington County. God bless you and again thank you from a parent of a special need student."




"To all parents of special needs students, please be informed on your child's school placement options in Washington County. Your special needs child has the right to an appropriate education. The state and federal government allocate money for each and every handicapped child in this county who attend a Washington County school to ensure a proper education for that special needs child. Your child has a right to an appropriate education."




"I am calling about the Fraternal Order of Police asking for a sizable donation over the telephone. Has anyone else been solicited? Is this a legal practice of the police? Does anyone have any information about this? I am a senior citizen and I do not give donations over the phone."

"I would like to congratulate my granddaughter, Heather Lowery, and all the girls on her softball team for doing so well in the tournament. Congratulations, girls. Granddaddy and Grandma Towtruck."




"I see we are talking about the county's debt level again and I see Mr. Snook right at the forefront. Of course, he was the only one returned out of the last County Commissioners. Why, I don't know, because he was just as much responsible for the water and sewer debt as any. I see the baseball stadium mentioned and they talk about the county's bond rating and I hope that they keep that down. Obviously it is a red flag and I suggest that the people go and look at a book at the Washington County Library called 'The Maryland Statistical Abstract.' I suggest you look at that book and just see what our balance sheet looks like compared to the other counties. You will see that we are headed for deep trouble."




"It seems like all our County Commissioners want to do is raise taxes. I think they need to learn to live within their means like the rest of us have to do. Otherwise, there might be a house cleaning come next election."




"I am a resident of Bethel Gardens off Jonathan Street and I know that the Police Department reads Mail Call. So I would like the Police Department to know that they are doing their job and they are doing it very well, but the drug problems go on from the time the bars close until about 7 in the morning. Saturday night, there were at least 50 or 60 people standing in the middle of the street, up along the sidewalk, cars coming in from all over the states, wherever you can think of. All out in the street, you could have gotten all of them last night. So if you want to get them, get them after all the bars close up here. They are always out there until 5, 6 or 7 in the morning and then they go in and go to sleep."




"I am responding to the person who called Mail Call and said her mother and father taught her the ABCs and 123s. Well, I taught my children their ABCs and numbers and my children deserve to go to preschool, they are our future. So don't be complaining about the government cutting it, they shouldn't cut it. Our children are our future and they are going to be taking care of us later on."




"It is Sunday morning and I just got another phone call on my son, Jason Jenkins. He is not the Jason Jenkins that was stabbed that you put in the paper. Is there some way you can put the boy's address, his age or anything? I already received about 20 or more calls and it never happened to my son. Please do something that would make this a little easier on us."




"I was wondering if anyone else out there thought anything about the Glendening separation. To me, it is like, who cares! I would be more interested to read a news article."




"I want to thank two anonymous female good citizens who pushed my stalled car to the Virginia Avenue Shell station on Monday, July 24. You know who you are and thanks again."




"This is the lady who fell in Wal-Mart on Friday, July 28, around 1 p.m. near the bathrooms. I want to get in touch with the gentleman who helped me, he was very nice and I wanted to thank him. He can reach me at 301-432-7091."




"A very special thank you goes out to Curtis Wood, Brian Hoffman and the rest of the Street Crimes Unit for their continued effort in cleaning up our neighborhood. The noise and people loitering have been cut in half thanks to you guys. Someone probably would have gotten shot or something if you guys were not patrolling the area. Hopefully, when this is all over, you will continue to patrol the area so we can keep the neighborhood clean and drug-free for our children to live."
