Mail Call for 9/19

Mail Call for 9/19



Home towns for Mail Call


Editor's note - We would like to begin putting your home town in Mail Call at the end of your response. It's not mandatory, but we think it would be interesting to see where the calls are coming from. You still don't have to leave your name, but a home town would be of interest. And just in case you're worried, we're not capable of tracing your call.




"I am a citizen of the United States and a taxpayer. Could the government take the $70 billion surplus that we are supposed to be in the black on? It is money that we had that they can dispense amongst the country to organizations that are in need. Take it and send some of these kids to college for free. It would help. Get more teachers in with higher pay than they are getting now. There are kids that have 4.0 gpas and can't afford to go to college. This is all I am asking. This could reach one of our congressmen. That could be put to the test on the floor of the Senate or House."

"I was reading the paper about trick or treating for Oct. 26. Why don't they just leave it Oct. 31 like it has been for a long, long time. Why does everyone switch things? Leave it on the regular date, as it is supposed to be."




"I read about the state workers that are going to these nursing homes and checking on these homes. What good does it do to let them know that you are coming? Aren't they going to fix whatever they are doing wrong before you get there?"




"I want to comment on the comment in Mail Call about Williamsport. Boy, they sure hit the nail on the head. Maybe now the Williamsport people will complain about what doesn't suit them. There is a lot of things that could be improved."




"I used to be a crossing guard at Winter Street and Franklin Street. I just wanted to say thanks to the school, the kids and the parents for three wonderful years. I will miss you very much and I hope you have a great school year. It is people like you that make going to work enjoyable and all worthwhile. To Nakia and Chelsie, you both will always hold a very special place in my heart, even if I am not there. I miss you and I will always be thinking about you. Again, thank you."




"I have been making crab crakes for years and I have never in those years ever heard of using tuna fish."




"Who won the money raffle out at the Maugansville Days that the Ruritan Club chanced off? The tickets were $10 a piece. Does anyone know who won the raffle money?"
