Mail Call for 4/11

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:

"I want to congratulate Valley Mall and thank them very much for having the courage to allow a church to put a display for Easter. I think it is absolutely fabulous. I give credit to the Hagerstown Church of Christ for all the work that was put into it. It is too bad that more of us Christians don't ban together to try to unite our country against some of the things that are coming against us, that are evil, instead of worrying about, 'I cannot help you because you are not in the same denomination I am.' It is a fabulous display."


"I have been reading in the paper a lot lately about neighbors not getting along with each other. I just want everyone to know that I have the best neighbor in Hagers-town, her name is Bea, she lives on Lexington Avenue in Halfway."

"I heard that you don't have property taxes in Florida. To all of you who are complaining about the property tax in Hagerstown, why don't you move to Florida. It's warmer and you don't have to pay the property taxes."

"In response to the snow days and what five days they are to make up. I called the Board of Education and they told me that the last day of school for all students except kindergarten is June 12, Kindergarten's last day is June 11."

"My house was robbed. If anyone notices anyone spending an excessive amount of silver dollars, half dollars, two dollar bills, new quarters and gold dollars. You can put your name and number in Mail Call or call the city police and report it."

"We the people on Netz Road would like for the trucks to drive on the road, instead of in our yards."

"I want to make a suggestion to the citizens of Hagerstown that we not buy anything that is made in China. I realize that it will be a little difficult, but I think it is worth the effort in honor of those prisoners over there."

"It is time for George Bush to demand an apology from China, not the other way around. I think we should boycott all Chinese goods. Forget China. We are not going to buy that stuff anymore."

"Can anyone tell us what is being proposed for the Tammany area. Everyone has little red signs in their front yard?"

"In response to the person who was tired of hearing about gay rights and living next to someone who has AIDS. I am not gay or anything but I feel that straight people have always had rights. You don't have to be gay to catch AIDS. You should get educated about AIDSbefore put something in the paper. Until then you shouldn't put anything in the paper. Thank God that you don't have AIDS."


"Happy birthday on April 15 to Nan Renner from her son, grandson and great-grandson, pap and from Jackie Ann Regina. Happy birthday Nan and God bless."


"I want to congratulate the school board for putting a walk from Oak Ridge on the Sharpsburg in through the three schools that are in the south end."

"Attention patients of Dr. Moody, he has a birthday next week. Let's get those cards rolling in and tell him what a dear friend he is."

"I am calling about the energy assistance program. I applied back in October or November, I had to wait awhile for mine. I ran out of oil and I had to get emergency funding and two weeks later, I got the official invoice saying that I was approved. I got mine back in January. Then at the end of January and early February, I got a grant for electricity, that I never applied for, but I got anyway. I got mine, I guess you just have to keep bugging them. Get the money out to the people, when they need it."

"To the person who wanted to know about the Dale Ernhardt Sundrop bottles, yes there is such a bottle. If you have any questions, call Mail Call and maybe we can get together and discuss it."
