Mail Call for 12/22

"Thank goodness Dr. Moody, your office is still open. You, Virginia and Lisa are angels of mercy. We cannot afford to lose you. You are one in a million."

"Here's to you, John Slayman. We think you have done a good job here in town. We think you should stay in here and keep doing the good work. By the way, John, how about getting us that Wal-Mart that Funkstown doesn't need."

"I am calling about the Valley Mall, it is entirely too hot. They drive their customers like me away that come to the mall and spend a great deal of money. I used to work in the mall and now it is entirely too HOT!"

"We all wish Pap and Nan a Happy 50th Anniversary on Dec. 23. We all love you."


"I would like to wish my mom, Susan, a Merry Christmas. I love you and Merry Christmas."


"I am calling in response to the Dear Santa ad. It is easier for some to get a man than others. Obviously you need Jenny Craig. Here is the number, 1-800-JENNY."

"Shame to the person in Williamsport that called the police on a wheelchair-bound person who parked their van in front of their house and could not move it right away because of the ice storm on Thursday. How would you feel if, every time you parked somewhere, the police were called on you. The Bible says, 'Love thy neighbor.' If this is how you love thy neighbor, I don't want it or need it."


"I want to wish my favorite Aunt Betty a Merry Christmas. We love you. Love, Tanya and Tamara."

"I would like to wish Tina, my sweetheart, a very Merry Christmas. I love you always and forever."

"Instead of building a Wal-Mart in Funkstown, why don't they build another bar? I think that is what the mayor and council want. They must think having drunks running around is a lot better than people shopping at Wal-Mart."

"I am not a county or city worker, but I notice that calls are coming in about the city and county workers using the vehicles for their own personal use. Why don't you go out and volunteer and help people instead of going out and burning people for what they do? I bet money if you were a city or county worker, you would be running all over the place, too. I found out one thing, as long as you get something in life, it is OK, but don't let anyone else get it. You are jealous."

"I agree with the person about the drinking and the drunks in Funkstown and then they go out on our highways. Where are the police?"


"Now that the election is settled, I wonder what the Republicans have to say when the stock market continues to fall. Could it be a lack of confidence in the incoming administration? A lot of us remember how it was eight years ago. To those out there that are screaming all over the media about Hillary Clinton getting an $8 million book advance. I would imagine that you are a Republican. If you could even read or write, you couldn't write one that anyone would buy, that's for sure."

"I want to wish my nanny Joann, a wonderful Christmas and a happy New Year. From your favorite grandchildren, Tommy, Tanya and Tamara. We love you."

"Could someone please find out what the terrible sewer smell is in the Kemps Mill, Williamsport area?"

"I want to wish Jean and Larry a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year. From Norma and Kim."

"This is in response to the person who called in about the Wal-Mart. Obviously you don't care about the traffic in Funkstown or on Dual Highway. If you are so concerned about people losing those meaningless $7 an hour jobs, they can go to the other Wal-Mart on the other end of town because they don't have enough employees out there to keep the place going. It only takes five minutes to get there from Funkstown. I don't know why you couldn't do that in the first place."

"I would like to say that there is a Santa Claus. He is a very nice man named Mike from Williamsport. He brings me wood and keep my driveway plowed when it snows, so this old widow on Lockwood Road won't be cold this winter or fall and break any bones. Thanks again, Mike. Merry Christmas and happy New Year. Miss Ruth."

"I am a regular customer at Northern Avenue McDonald's and I would like to wish Tanya, Sonja and Joyce a very Merry Christmas. Thank you for the wonderful job that you do to reach out and touch your customers in the morning. Merry Christmas, girls, and a happy New Year."

"I want to say a special thank you to the two gentlemen in Chewsville with their snow blower and four-wheel drive who clean our sidewalk in the snow. God bless you and have a very Merry Christmas."
