Mail Call for 10/5

Mail Call for 10/5



"This is directed to a grocery store in town that has erected a wall of canned vegetables between me and my shopping in your store. Put a wall up, I am not going to go past it, I will go somewhere else. As far as the canned vegetables are concerned, I am not going to mention the brand name. I am not going to buy any of them again."




"To the young person who was blaming others because they didn't have anything to do but cruise the Dual Highway. Apparently you are not smart enough to recognize or renounce a dull, unproductive lifestyle. Boredom cannot be blamed on other people, it is the result of no initiative and no interest in anything but one's self."

- Sabillasville




"To the woman in the black sports car. I believe that the manual says yield or stop if necessary."




"I read where someone is hunting black walnuts. Call me at 301-790-0824. We have plenty of them for you to pick up."

"Could someone tell me how you go about getting a truck weight limit sign posted at a senior development? I live in the West Oak Ridge Drive area and the section of the street that I live on is residential and the other end is for businesses and the business trucks use our road, they speed through and children can't play in the front yards in fear of being thrown out into the middle of the street."




"I read with interest about the girl in the black sports car getting on I-81. Sounds like the person that called and complained about this black sports car and the girl in the car both need some driving rehabilitation. Both of the explanations of what happened, seems to me that neither one of them knows what they are doing behind the wheel."




"To Mayor Slayman of Williamsport. I am a resident of Williamsport and I think it is a shame that you can't find money to put lights up at the Little League. I do hope that someone runs against you in March 2001. We need a change."




"If you want to see something beautiful, just get on Md. 67 and turn left on Netz Road and come back and see the beautiful dogwood trees. They are so beautiful and white in the spring and now that it is fall with the sun setting, the leaves are red. There is a house there, but you don't know it is there because the tree is so big and beautiful. It is a beautiful thing to see in the evening when the sun is setting around 6:30."




"I think that Washington County needs to adopt a dress code for the school teachers."

-Hagerstown




"I want to comment on the caterpillars. It was said that most of them can be found around leaves, compost, etc. My experience with them can go much further. One year I turned in as many as 78 and every one of them, I gathered off of roads and driveways. They climb on those surfaces to feel the comfort of the temperature. A.K."

-Boonsboro




"Way to go, South High Rebel Band on your first place win at the USSBA Show in Greencastle on Saturday. You guys are great and you are going to go far. Congratulations!"




"If Alice reads Mail Call then she will know how Clyde and I really appreciate her Blue Ribbon quality apple pies."

-Boonsboro




"I was reading Sunday's paper about the short order cooks and I don't agree with the woman who said, 'If you can flip a hamburger, you can be a cook.' That rubbed me the wrong way. I have been a cook for 25 years and that is like saying, 'anyone can be a cook.' There are some people that can flip a burger, but cannot do the other things that are required."

-Hagerstown




"For the gentleman who wanted to get his fingernails done, make an appointment at Hair Concepts. Call 301-790-0500, they will do it for you. Also, for the person that has the walnuts. If you want to get rid of them, we will be glad to come and get them. Call us at 301-582-3461."




"I don't know about anyone else, but that piece that was in the paper written by Paul Swartz where he calls himself and his fellow commissioners well-educated, intelligent, compassionate, good listeners, honest and patient made me sick. Why put this piece of nonsense in the paper? If you are such great people, how about the cattery law, which could be in the process of making us a national laughing stock. How come Mr. Swartz?"
