Mail Call for 1/16

"If you read the last several editorials by Charlie Reese, you can see that he has lost all touch with reality. It's a prime example how hatred can bury your soul and mind. His hatred of Israel and the Yankee North has caused him to lose touch with reality of the situation."

"This is for the gentleman who stopped by The Herald-Mail looking for an article on psoriasis and eczema. I found what you were looking for. Please call me at the Herald-Mail at 301-733-5131, ext. 2650."

"A few weeks ago I saw something in Mail Call about the county vehicles being used for personal use and being taken home. I live in Smithsburg and work in Hagers-town. Three or four times a week, there is a man that passes me in a county vehicle. Sometimes he has a child with him. I do think this should be stopped immediately with all county vehicles."


"There is someone out there wanting to know about Justin. He is my uncle. If you want any information, you can call me. Call Helen at 301-582-3461."

"I would like to tell the people who are yelling about the birds. I am 70 years old, there has always been birds, there are plenty of birds out here where I live. If you kill all the birds, the bugs will eat you all up."

"In response to the person who called in about the lottery. I too have played the lottery for years, I also think that they have changed it. I used to hit small amounts once in a while, but I haven't won anything in over a year. I haven't played it now for about a month. I have given it up. They changed something on it, it's not like it used to be. I have played several different kinds of lottery."

"Blue Cross/Blue Shield and CareFirst. I am on a fixed income, soon to be 80 and I got a $20 raise on my insurance. I don't think this is fair. The Social Security check, I got a $20 raise and then they go and do this."

"Hi Lisa, this is Hubby, I just wanted to say that I love you very much and thanks for being my wife."

"I was wondering if anyone else thought it was ironic that the school board would hold a work session, 9 to 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday, then hold public comment time at 11:30, the middle of a work day for most parents who have school age children. I think this is rather amusing."

"Lady Bird Johnson was married to the worst president this country has ever had."

"I am interested in a 1961 Boonsboro High School yearbook. If anyone has one available, please call me at 301-432-7562."

"To whom it may concern, as I do my shopping on any day of the week anywhere, I notice some lazy people don't put their shopping carts back when finished with them. I see the wind make two or three of those carts hit cars. I always put my cart back when finished. I wish the supermarkets, do what this one place in Chambersburg, put a quarter in your shopping cart. When you are finished with it, you take the cart back and you get your quarter. You wouldn't see so many shopping carts sitting in these parking lots anymore. That makes me so mad to see a nice looking new car hit by a shopping cart. Why can't you put them in the stalls or back in the store? My sister was hit by one and she was so mad, she went in to the store manager."

"Mike Potter is Chief of Police in Smithsburg. I just hope they like Yankee fans out there. Good luck Mike."

"I am a resident of Sharpsburg and I enjoyed reading Tim Rowland's article on Jan. 14. It would be nice if he would be asked to be the Grand Marshal in the Memorial Day Parade. He could respond by a yea or nay or a simple nod of the head."

"There are truly some honest mechanics in Hagerstown. From a previous accident, our hood on the car would not go up and down at all. Our headlight went out also. These two fellows worked nearly two hours on the hood and found a ball for a headlight. All we wanted was an estimate of the cost to get it repaired. We were short on money because of Christmas. Both of us are disabled and they said, 'no charge.' I could not believe what I was hearing. A very big thanks to Corderman's Body and Repair Shop and to the great guys that work there. Sincerely, The Durnings."
