Mail Call for 12/14



"About this business of making a pet owner a criminal if a pet gets loose and gets in trouble and the SPCA picks it up. Who in the world came up with this idea? After the cattery business, somebody would think that the County Commissioners really have it in for the people who own pets and the pets themselves. What is wrong with this crew? Make it a criminal offense and give that power to the SPCA? They can't even pick up the strays anymore."




"Happy 25th birthday, Jeff. Wishing you the best birthday ever."




"Thanks for the beautifully-run flu clinic at North High."




"I am calling for the person that put a response in the paper about finding a job and working for the city so they can ride around all day in their own truck. That's easy, go put in an application, work there for a few years and you will get your own truck."

"I want to wish all the Hagers-town City Light workers a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Keep up the good work, no matter what people say, you are doing a wonderful job."

-Hagerstown




"This is to the person that called Mail Call about getting a job with the city so you can drive your own truck. Go to City Hall, fill out the application, then you will get an interview. Then wait and see what happens."




"I want to let the people know that you can buy gas at Sheetz in Martinsburg for $1.30 a gallon. That is the cheapest I have found in the area. I don't think you are going to find it any cheaper."




"To the individual who said he is unemployed due to the closing of a local plant, but he is drawing unemployment. For his information, I drew it, too. So he is not the only genius around."




"Dear Santa, could you make this wish come true for me? I am a lady who is kind, smart, cute and small in stature who wishes to meet a single male for friendship. I am asking because it is not easy for someone like me. I did meet someone this year, but he didn't have time for me."




"Mayor Bruchey, Mulberry Street, Locust Street and Potomac Avenue. I had my monitor on about two Saturdays ago and a female officer said that the traffic lights were not in sync. She almost witnessed an accident. We spent a lot of money on these traffic signals. Look into this Mayor Bruchey."




"I had electrical wire installed and I keep hearing a tick, tick, tick in my phone line while I am talking on the phone. What can I do to get rid of this?"




"I am calling concerning the retirement of Dr. Moody. He is sure going to be missed after being his patient for over 25 years. As well as his wonderful nurse, Virginia. I wish them both the very best in their coming years."




"If you folks would like to have good music returned to the Hagerstown area, call 304-263-8868, ext. 308. The Williamsport radio station would like to change the format to good music after the Christmas season. But you have to call in and tell them what you would like to hear. It will only cost you one long distance call."




"This is to the drug dealers who have set up business out here in my neighborhood. I suggest that you move over a couple of blocks to Oak Hill, The Terrace and Woodland Way, where most of the city councilmen and the mayor lives. They will find themselves very warmly received, I suspect, at the least. The mayor and council believe that you don't exist, so you should have a field day before they catch on, if they ever do."

-Hagerstown




"I saw in the paper where someone wanted to buy a fresh turkey. Mr. Williams lives on Pinesburg Road. You can pick them up there. The phone number is 301-223-8048. They are wonderful turkeys and I get one from them every year."




"Someone had asked before what they could do to recycle foam peanuts. Mailbox, Etc. on Dual Highway would be glad to accept them. They use them every day and they would be glad to have them."




"In response to South High's note in Mail Call about the public meeting on Dec. 16 with the local delegation to the Maryland General Assembly. The statement that they are going to ask for certain animal control matters to be made a criminal issue is not right. That has already been a part of the law for nine years now. They just discovered that the enabling law that the state provides does not allow it. So they are just going to try and get the state law changed. That does not mean that you are going to be hauled off in handcuffs and put in front of the Circuit Court. Get your facts straight before calling Mail Call."
