Mail Call for 10/31



"I live on Abbey Lane in Hagerstown. My bicycle was stolen on Sunday, Oct. 29. The person who took it, please bring it back. It was an antique bike. It is not the value of the bike, but its the fact that all you had to do was ask. I would have given it to you. If you bring it back and you really want it, you can have it. Maybe you will realize then how wrong it is to take something that is not yours."




"I think it is pathetic that the Halfway Fire Company sends out a bill called a contribution or donation and they tell you what you must give for fire protection. Forty dollars for a house and so forth. Suppose the people can't afford that? I think it should be at a person's wishes as to how much they can give."




"New York Yankees, 2000 World Series Champions. You know what, folks, I think it is starting to sound like a broken record. In my opinion, they are not the world champions, they are the weird champions. I am not a Yankees fan and never will be. To set the record straight, you kind folks of Hagerstown, I am not a Yankees fan, I am an Atlanta Braves fan."

"I wish someone who is a politician in this area would do something about the telemarketers. It is very frustrating to a person living in the community who is off of all of these lists and are still somehow getting calls. When you go through all that trouble to get off the lists, you still get the calls. The companies should do a better job in checking their lists to find out who wants to be called who doesn't want to be called. Stop bothering people that don't want to be bothered. We pay enough for the phone service, we don't need to be bothered by these telemarketers."




"For the record, one of the reasons you don't see any Gore-Lieberman signs in Washington County is because the Democratic Party hasn't had any in this area for a while now. I have been to the Democratic Headquarters three or four times and they haven't had a big quantity of them, mostly due to the fact that the Democrats usually take the state of Maryland and so he is pushing in other states, where he needs more votes. You are right, Gore does tell a lot of white lies and he has made us look bad with a lot of his silly remarks, but at least he is intelligent. Bush lies continuously and nobody catches it. Bush doesn't know half the issues that he talks about. Who are you going to vote for? I am going to at least vote for someone who is intelligent. You can't trust any of them, don't be fooled. But at least go for the intelligent one."




"My male boxer is missing. Please refer to Pet Watch on Friday and the Lost and Found Classified beginning Saturday. This dog is like a child to me and my heart aches without him. He loves his family and wants to come home. I have raised him since he was six weeks old and love him dearly. Please help me find him. I am offering a $250 reward and one of his puppies free to anyone who is responsible for returning him. If you have seen him wandering, please approach him, he is friendly. If you have him and know where he is, please have the heart and call me, no questions asked. If enough people look, I know I will find him. I won't give up until he is found. He is registered with the SPCA and every vet in the surrounding area. Please call me."




"I want to say BOO to all you parents in Smithsburg, who took your kids out trick-or-treating, but none of you would stay home to hand out candy at your own house. What kind of selfishness is that teaching your children?"




"To the person calling about the black and orange flying bugs. They are box elder tree bugs and the only way you are going to get rid of them is to cut the tree that is near your house or use warm soapy water and spray them. It takes a while to get rid of them. Whatever ones you hit, you kill, but they keep coming back. Just keep spraying them with warm soapy water. I hope it works, I have had them for years."




"I didn't get to watch game three of the World Series. Does anyone have a copy in town of game three of the World Series? If you do, call me at 301-582-4954 after 5 p.m."




"Lost dog, missing since Sept. 30. Hound, Rottweiler mix, male, good looking dog, medium height, black with tan markings, short hair, floppy ears, long tail. Dog fitting this description seen in different parts of the city; Downtown, public square, library, five corners, Antietam Street and Burhans Boulevard. Call 301-766-9114."




"Does anyone out there have a recipe for pumpkin bread that they want to share? I had one before, but in the process of moving, I lost it. Leave your name and number in Mail Call and I will get back with you."
