Mail Call for 1/23

"On Jan. 18, 9:30 a.m. a small brown and white dog was lost in the Halfway area on Kennybrook Drive. Anyone who has seen this dog or know of his whereabouts, please call 240-420-6730 and leave a message. This dog is very friendly and there is a generous cash reward for his return."

"Jesse Jackson knows he committed a sin. He has apologized to the public and his family. He is curtailing his activities to contemplate his situation. I am sure that he has apologized to God and looked for forgiveness. Since he has admitted his sin and is taking corrective action, 'let he who be without sin, cast the first stone.'"

"This is from a veteran. I see where Dick Cheney is going to lead a salute to veterans for the Inaugural festivities. What a joke, Cheney spent almost the entire 1960s in and out of college to avoid the draft. Just to let you know that very few of the veterans voted for Cheney."


"For the man who came to my door and offered to bring his Boy Scout group to clean the cemetery here near Leitersburg. Would you please call again? I lost your phone number."

"I want to thank Mr. Swartz and Mr. Boyer for their continued support of a new stadium. Keep up the good work. I have not heard any of these people that are against the stadium complain about spending $45 million for a Civil War museum. Why not? Big difference between $15, $18 and $45 million for a museum. If everyone would have gotten their act together several years ago, the cost to build the stadium wouldn't be as high as it is anticipated now. Let's keep baseball in the Hagers-town area, we cannot afford to lose the revenue that the teams brings in. By the way, we are a couple over 60 years of age. Let's keep baseball in Hagerstown, along with the new stadium."

"How about Jesse Jackson? I know now why he and Bill Clinton got along so good together, 'Birds of a feather, flock together.'"

"To the person who is concerned about all the West Virginia people bringing their kids over to our school in Maryland. I am upset, too. These people come over here and use all of our services, our jobs. They never pay taxes, they never even buy anything over here. But they want to complain about our taxes."

"This is a friendly reminder to the parents who have children, please understand that it is not polite when your children say things about people with disabilities. I know most of you are considerate, but teach your children that, too."

"If I see Bill Clinton hug Monica on TV one more time, I am going to scream."

"We have a wonderful fabric store here in Hagerstown. It is called Traditions of the White Swan. It is located near Huyetts Crossroads. The fabrics are wonderful. Try it, you might like it."

"Why do people have dogs for pets and never take care of them? There is a retriever in our neighborhood that is out all the time, no dog house, only a bare porch to lay on. Sometimes he will get in at night, if he is lucky."

"Lost wallet with button snap and zipper compartment. Lost at AC&T on Wesel Boulevard. If found, please return to the address on the driver's license. Thanks."

"It is amazing to me that Bill Clinton, after six years and $55 million dollars and investigations on him, he now admits that he was evasive and misleading in his answers concerning his relationship with Monica and Paula. I wonder what else he has lied about? It is ashamed that he could not have told the truth in all these matters and saved this country $55 million. What good that could have done to the charities that could have used that money. Anyone that can stand there and lie has no morals. It is odd to me that Clinton, after all this time instead of being indicted, that he would tell the truth."

"I think that the road crews did a terrible job in cleaning up the roads for this latest snowfall. They could have been out there Saturday night cleaning up this mess."

"We, who live in Cedar Lawn are very blessed. We had a 78-year- old carrier deliver our Sunday paper despite the snow. Thanks Nicki and the snow angel that came and cleaned out my driveway."

"This is to thank a snow angel, Jim Winters, who has cleared the walks of his neighbors' once again. We want you to know how much we appreciate you. Thanks so much Jim, for all your help because you are the best."

"I suppose everyone has their best neighbor. Well, mine is Clyde Hartzell. I had an idea that he might be around to shovel snow for me with his snow blower. But he was out there before I had much time to think about it. A.K. from Boonsboro."
