Mail Call for 2/4



"To the person who was complaining about the newspaper putting an article in about praising Bush's speech. They said they didn't like the newspaper and when their 80 year old person in their home was gone so would the paper and that you would be getting your news from the Internet. Would you please put your name and address in the paper so I can send you a cheese basket to go with your whine."




"To my nephew, Jason and to Jennifer, as you start your new life out together, on your wedding day, Feb. 1. Welcome to the family Jennifer, love Aunt Sissy, Uncle Junior, Jennifer and Johnny."




"In answer to the question in the paper regarding a funeral box. It should be referred to as a burial box. In this case, the person's ashes were kept in the urn for the funeral or memorial service. Then after the graveside services, the ashes were dumped into the box for burial. The urn was taken home for the mantel or something of that nature. In most cases the urn is enclosed in the box then buried."

"I am calling about the deer that I saw on Oak Ridge Drive, Wednesday night on the way from Funkstown. It was laying like it was sleeping, when I went by. I was going to come back, but my husband is handicapped, so I didn't want him to sit in the car. When we turned around and come back later, there were two men with the deer in a field with a truck. I thought the deer was hit, but apparently it was still alive. I am wondering what happened to the deer? Did someone take care of it, was it hurt, or did you have to put it down. I wish I would have stopped now. Someone please call Mail Call and let me know how the deer made out."




"All the grandparents of Danielle who lives on Fairplay Road would like to wish her a happy birthday. She was born on Groundhog Day. We love her a lot. I guess that makes her our little groundhog."




"I see that the City Council approved a law to make it illegal to have an open alcoholic beverage container in public. Does this apply to the Blues Fest? Or will there be an exception?"




"I want to wish my grandson a happy 14th birthday. His name is Kreig. From Nan."




"I can't believe all the hatred in this town."




"This is Shirley, I had a decorated cane, it's lost now. Maybe someone could find it for me. I love to go out and maybe that is how I lost it."




"To all the Pittsburgh Steeler fans who started celebrating too soon. At least last year's number one defense won the Super Bowl."




"In response to the Maugans Avenue widening project, I say, 'when do they start digging?' This is one of the busiest roads in Washington County. For once they are building a road to properly handle future demand. Please widen Eastern Boulevard next, it should have been four lanes from the beginning."




"I haven't seen any robins yet, but I do know it could be possible because my daffodils are starting to come up, they are green. As we approach spring, I think people need to take down Christmas lights, I drive by and I see Christmas trees still lit up in people's houses."




"On Friday they cleaned E. Franklin Street, E. Washington Street, from the square clear down to Cannon Avenue at Sheetz and North Mulberry Street from the railroad tracks all the way down to Bester Elementary. Where in the world are people supposed to park when they clean all the streets around all at once. This is ridiculous, what do they expect us to do, park a mile away from our house? I think they should only clean one street at a time."
