Letters to the editor for 6/3

June 03, 2002

Thanks to everyone for our new home


To the editor:

Being a resident of the new Francis Murphy Apartments, I want to personally thank everyone involved from the contractors, maintenance, and especially Pam Schnebly for all of their hard work. My family and friends think these apartments are very nice.

We seniors really do appreciate this comfort. No more grass to mow or snow to shovel - God bless all of these wonderful people. Watch for our open house.

The Daily Mail's picture selection is the best I have seen


To the editor:

Kudos and accolades to The Daily Mail AP wire photo editor, and The Daily Mail press operators in charge of quality control.

I routinely read the Washington Post, Baltimore Sun, Baltimore Afro-American, Cumberland Times-News, City Paper, Dundalk Eagle, Frederick News-Post, Picket, (North Dakota) Forum. and Rising Sun Herald. And when I get my hands on them I read USA Today, Washington Times, Wall Street Journal, Daily Banner, and several other papers.

I unequivocally declare that no other paper comes close to the quality of The Daily Mail wire editor's selection of AP pictures. The selection of Daily Mail Pictures is always vivid and colorful. Whether it is the eye-catching picture of the archbishop's canonicals at his installation (June 19, 2000, page B1); the astonishing fury of the fires on hills backlighting Reno (Aug. 3, 2000); or the stunning picture of Plains flooding I get from air photos that help me connect as a former South Dakota resident (June 21, 2000, page B1), what's amazing is that I never saw any of these pictures in any of the other newspapers I read. And no other paper comes close to the smashing production quality of The Daily Mail.

An old adage holds that if you've seen one baseball game you've seen one thousand; and the corollary holds that if you've seen one pretty postcard you've seen one thousand. I'll go with two other old adages - one picture is worth a thousand words; and The Daily Mail consistently bats a thousand.

Courts, juvenile agency addressed my concern


To the editor:

I am writing a letter again to let you know that my concerns about the issue I wrote about previously were taken very seriously and I did get listened to very much!

My issue was with children and teenagers who are placed in the court systems and basically treated with little or no respect! (I had previously written about Noyes Detention Center in Rockville and the care that is not being rendered to these children and teenagers.)

Well, my concerns were taken very seriously and checked into.I am also letting everyone know that when I made reference to other people's children I did not directly mean the children of the judges, lawyers and doctors of whom I previously spoke.

There are some very caring people who I really do appreciate thse people in our systems. I want to especially thank Judge Beachley and other lawyers who have stepped in and helped me with my concerns.

Judge Beachley has truly helped me with my son and to him I would like to thank very much for helping me with my concerns. Thanks to him, my son's case is really moving ahead. I also have a couple friends who are lawyers and they are A-1 with me.

So again thanks to Judge Beachley for helping me with this issue of Noyes and also to juvenile justice officials for getting the attention of the system.

Special thanks to Rick Growden, who is always willing to go that extra mile for my son. He's a really nice probation officer who I feel is great and number one with children and teenagers!

Thanks to everyone who helped me and listened to my concerns.
