Mail Call for 11/21

Editor's note - Please be as brief as possible when calling Mail Call, The Daily Mail's reader call-in line.

Mail Call is not staffed on weekends or holidays so it is best to call Mail Call during the week. The Mail Call number is 301-791-6236.

You are welcome to leave a recorded message on any subject, but some calls will be screened out.

Here are some of the calls we have received lately:

"We want to inform the community, without naming the organization, but we feel that the community needs to be aware of this. You have various organizations that help the community in ways. We were disgusted when we attended a daily event by an organization that has volunteers that in my opinion shouldn't be volunteers. They need to brush up on their attitude. You never know who walks through that door or who knows who. If you are an agency that serves the community and asking for assistance at times, you should hold your head down in shame as far as the volunteers. Most of them are nice, but there are a few that shouldn't be there."


"I find it pretty scary that the future of our country is hanging in the balance on this presidential race. That is not the scary thought, Democracy is what it is and when you have things this closely, you have to make sure that you do it truthfully, honestly and correctly. I think Gore's people are taking it too far. It is amazing that every time they do a recount, Gore comes up so much more votes."

"If anyone would be interested in donating quart size canning jars and lids to Toys for Tots, call 301-432-5980."

"Special congratulations to the Williamsport High School boys and girls soccer teams who played Saturday for the championship. Smithsburg High School, girls volleyball, congratulations to Jim Klein on a well-coached, well-oiled machine. Good job, Jim Klein."

"I want to thank Bill Clinton for finally making it to Vietnam. But the only thing is, he is 32 years too late!"

"Happy birthday to my darling. God brought us together and only God will take us to Heaven, one or both together. I love you darling. Have a nice birthday. Love, Honey Pot."

"To the person who has good used toys to donate, please call Dick at 301-791-2095. He is collecting for Appalacian underprivileged children for Christmas. Thanks a bunch."

"On Thursday, Nov. 16, at 8:45 p.m. I accidentally left my baby stroller with my children's coat and shoes in the basket in the parking lot of the mall by Montgomery Wards. It was not returned to the mall and I am very upset about the loss. I would appreciate it, if you would return it to the mall security."

"Hats off and it should certainly get an award, a photograph by Kevin Gilbert, entitled 'Art by Mother Nature.' It is the most gorgeous photo I have ever seen. Hats off to this beautiful snowflake of the wind chills. This man will deservingly be getting an award for this."

"To my granddaughter Tanya. I am proud of you for getting your first deer. Good job, Love, Nanny."

"Happy birthday, Robby. Love, you Nanny."

"My name is Linda and I have an opinion on the Florida votes. I think they should ship them off to Texas so they can vote there until they have a new system in Florida."

"I agree with the person who suggested to make one of the candidates president and one vice president. I still think that if they are going to do any voting and make it fair, recount every state in the United States."

"I found a black Lab mixed puppy on Landis Road on Friday around dark. It had a collar on it. It appears to be three or four months old. I am taking very good care of it. If you are missing a puppy, call 301-739-5672 and I will get back with you."

"To the person in Mail Call on Tuesday that said everything increases except the paychecks. At least in the past 10 years we have had a paycheck."

"I used to hike and ride a bike on C&O towpath often. It seems that after all dwellings have disappeared along the river, there is a lot of crime on the towpath and government property. Such as graffiti, drugs, assaults, rapes, etc. I never see any patrols. It is not safe anymore to be in these areas. What a shame. Stop wasting money in these areas. I have stopped using these facilities for a safer environment."

"I want to wish our son Rodney a very happy birthday. To a great son. Love, Mom and Dad."

"I am watching Channel 12 and they're talking about feeding the hungry. Why don't these people go out here and get some of these jobs that are $7.50 and $8 and hour and go to work? A lot of them can and a lot of them can't. That is $64 a day. If they can't live on $64 a day, there is something wrong with the people in this county."
