Mail Call for 1/24



"I read the article in the paper last week about the walking police officer on Franklin Street. I too would like to know where is the walking officer that we used to have. He was a very good officer, he talked to the people. I think that the people on Franklin Street liked to see him walking. I think people felt safer."




"I want to know since U.S. taxes are going over to Afghanistan to rebuild everything we destroyed because of Osama bin Laden, why don't they put a freeze on that man's money and use that to re-build our Trade Centers instead of using our money? Another thing, we are sending all that food over there for them and we have people right over here in the United States who are starving and need the food. I think we need to get together and do something about it. If anyone wants my number to start getting something done, it is 301-582-3738."

"I feel we do need trees around the square, just as much as anyone else. It would be bare without them. The crows are the things that need to be eliminated."




"To all the people calling and whining all the time, instead of using the energy for whining, go to a hospital or somewhere and donate some time."




"I agree with the guy that claims The Herald-Mail makes mistakes in their writing and spelling. In Tuesday's paper in the letters to the editors, they misspelled web as wed. Also, the picture on the front page of the kid holding the Valentine's card to the soldiers, the photographer took the picture of the kid holding the card upside down. So you don't know how to spell or proofread your work. How can you not notice that the kid was holding the picture upside down?"




"I am so sick and tired of all the complaining that you senior citizens do about Social Security and insurance. You are not the only ones affected. It's everyone else, too. Go out and get a job like everyone else does."




"In Sunday's paper there was a letter to the editor called, 'The Right To Leave' from John L. Howard Sr. in Greencastle, Pa. Mr. Howard, I have one thing to say, 'I totally agree with what you say.' Finally someone said it right and very well. So thank you, Mr. Howard."




"I would like to know why the crime rate in Boonsboro keeps getting higher and higher and yet you never see any patrol cars around the area. I live in a development and I never see any patrol cars, day or night."




"To the plain folks complaining that if their house burned, they would have to accept hand-me- downs. The family in Funkstown has accepted hand-me-downs. People respect them and they love them in the community and they asked them to register at those stores. We want to do this for them."




"Monday night at 1 a.m., I was driving home on Leitersburg Pike from Hagerstown. I was on the road before Clopper Road on that small hill close to a farm house. I came upon two cats in the road. I slowed down, but they ran out in front of me. I slammed on my brakes and swerved to miss them but one ran into the path of my car. I heard a small thump and thought I had hit one of them. I traveled a few yards, turned around and went back to see this cat, I couldn't find it anywhere. Neither of the two cats were anywhere to be found. I'm really concerned about this cat. My daughter was in the car with me and we're both wondering where and how these cats are. If anyone out around that area know these cats or their whereabouts, please call Mail Call and let me know. I hope and pray that they are all right. I would have stopped and taken care of them if I could have found them. I would have gone knocking on doors if I found them and they were hurt. If it is, please accept my apologies and call Mail Call."




"To the people complaining about the family in Funkstown being burned out. I don't understand how someone could be so cruel. We love these people, they are wonderful to the community and I just couldn't say enough about them and a lot of others can't either. They did not voluntarily do this. We are having this party because we love them and we asked them to register."




"To the bird watcher of the Audobon Society person, who said that the robins are not back that they were the crows. Let me tell you, the robins are back, they were back Sunday when the snow came. Church was canceled, we sat in the room looking out the window, there were robins all over the ground and drinking from the bird bath. Not thousands of them but six to eight of them, right in our front yard."




"I can believe that the robins are back because I saw a groundhog the other day, in the snow, so I guess anything is possible."
