Mail Call for 2/12



"I want to wish Shawn a happy 30th birthday for Saturday, Feb. 10. From Gene."




"I had a 35-foot silver maple tree cut down and I have lots of 12- inch wood sections in my backyard. They are yours free for the hauling away. My number is 301-739-8992, evenings or weekends."




"I work night shift in an office in Hagerstown and we like to listen to the radio. The station we like is 95.9, but we don't understand why there is no DJ talking. We like to hear a human voice to let us know some news, weather, etc. We hear commercials, but they are pre-recorded. Does anyone know why they play music all night long? So 95.9, please make chit chat with the night people."




"I see where Lt. Gov. Townsend wants $300 million for drug treatment programs. The article in the paper is very misleading. This intensive treatment that she is talking about that these people need, she is only talking about the ones out on the street, living day to day with it. She hasn't mentioned the thousands that are locked up in the state prisons that are drug addicts. She better cover the whole state before she goes asking for $300 million."

"I am angry, appalled and dismayed to think that the hotel/motel tax would be used for anything other than the building of a new stadium. This is wrong, wrong, wrong. It should be put into an escrow account. We should not allow Chris Shank to make this decision. He is awfully young to know community needs. We should be showing the new owner of the team support. But instead, it looks like we are going to be badgering him like Mr. Blenckstone. A variety of leisure time activities are necessary to attract new investments and people to our area. Whether local people like it or not, we cannot close our community to progress. The stadium was on the burner before the Civil War museum, the downtown entertainment district or Gov. Glendening's wrong location college. We need to move on the stadium issue. Do not listen to the narrow-minded people. Those complaining the loudest are the ones who pay the least in taxes. Let us build the stadium in a visible location, either along I-81 or I-70. Forget the old stadium. I worked at the stadium 50 years ago and it was terrible then."




"I want to congratulate the Colonial Restaurant on Pennsylvania Avenue for its fine food and especially its clean restaurant."




"This is Thursday and they say about picking up the papers and save them and set them out on the curb. Well, mine has been sitting there since Wednesday at 4 p.m., and they still haven't picked them up. I think they better get on the ball a little."




"I want to wish my wife Patty a Happy Valentine's Day. Love, your husband, Tom."




"I would like to thank our five complaining neighbors who called the city about a garage that needed new paint on it because the paint was peeling. If they were such good church going neighbors, they would offer their help to these elderly people instead of complaining."




"I would like to wish, Tommy, Tanya and Tamara a Happy Valentine's Day. Love, Mom and Dad."




"Does anyone but me have any trouble with Channel 47, the A&E Channel?"




"My cousin Jeremy recently died and I want the world to know that he gave me a lifetime of good memories. Love, Marah."




"The City of Hagerstown has to do something about the crows that are in the trees around Russo's Rx and the trees that surround Franklin and Mulberry streets. Every morning between 6:15 and 7 all you hear are the crows yelping. Do you know the movie 'The Birds?' Well, that is what it sounds like. Please either chop those trees down or destroy the pesky crows. The streets look terrible and the smell is awful. You cannot even go outside in the morning and drink your coffee because they are flying around everywhere. Something has to be done."
