Mail Call for 9/11

September 12, 2002

"I found a camera last year in Yellowstone National Park and just recently decided to get the disposable camera developed. Well amongst the pictures of bison, elk, mountains, I noticed a man who was fishing with a T-shirt that had Pinesburg Baseball Champs 1998. I checked around and couldn't find any other Pinesburg on the map, except for Maryland. Is there any way that a lost and found could be published to find the owner of these pictures? I thought it would be interesting to give these pictures back to the guy who was fishing. You can call into Mail Call if you think these are your pictures or you can e-mail me at"

"First of all, God bless America and the families that lost loved ones on 9/11. I would like to comment on Bush going over to kick Saddam's butt. I think we have to do it. We can't stick our heads in the sand like an ostrich. Nobody wants a war, but when you have a power like Adolf Hitler, who is as crazy as a bed bug with mass destruction at his fingertips, something has to be done. We can stick our heads in the sand, but when we pull our heads out of the sand, we are going to find our butts blown off if we don't do something about Saddam. By the way Mail Call, keep up the good job."


"In reference to the article about the local fire department. It's all been political for years, if you don't know somebody, you don't get in."

"Hold your head high Paul Swartz, you were the only county commissioner who had the guts to tell the truth about the Howard case. God bless you."

"Urgent! I need to find the woman from Boonesborough Days that was giving away the black lab mixed puppies. We took one of the puppies home and he is very sick. The vet said he needs to be back home with his mother, that he was too young to leave his mother. It is urgent that I find this lady. Time is of the essence. If you know who the lady was that was giving these puppies away at the Tri-state Church during Boonesborough Days, call 240-420-8003."

"My name is Timothy and I am interested in the cats with no tails. I would like to have about two of them. Call me at 301-842-3497. I usually get home from work around 5 p.m. I am trying to keep this a secret from my daughter. So when you call just ask for Tim."

"I wanted to thank the young lady who helped me when my car broke down. It was on U.S. 40 coming towards Clear Spring, it was 3:30 a.m. and she had taken my daughter to my parents' house to get help for us. You are an angel. I believe she works at Wal-Mart. Call me at 301-842-3497, I would like to thank her in person or over the phone."

"I am a handicapped lady looking for a singles group for handicapped people. It is difficult for us to meet people for socializing. If anyone else is interested, call 301-733-1806, I would be willing to help start a group."

"I want to congratulate and say thank you to one of our own Hagerstown people, Philip Marshall. He is the person that donated bone marrow for the person that he didn't know from another country. We need more people that care about people instead of trying to get what they can from people. So thanks, Philip."

"Can someone give me the number for the phone company that handles the 10-10-10 to get the cheap rates for long distance calls?"

"I want to know if anyone buys newspapers. Call 301-766-4754."

"I too want to commend Mail Call and The Herald-Mail for their supplement in the paper on our county. Also, I do have a concern about the AIDS virus in the mosquito. I would also like to see a supplement in the paper in the fall and maybe some nice recipes. We used to have some nice recipes in the little paper that came in the fall."

"I am sitting here watching Channel 68 on Monday and they had the events of Sept.11 and as I was watching, I just sobbed and sobbed like a little baby. My heart went out to the people who lost their lives and families. My prayers go out to the families and loved ones that lost their lives on that horrible day. A day we, Americans will never forget. God bless each and every American."

"I would like to offer my deepest sympathies to the family of Chad Walls, who owned and operated the Snowball Effects snowball stand. He was such a nice young man who had the most beautiful personality and will be missed by many, many people."

"To the person who wanted to know if Long Meadow Shopping Center is going to get a department store, grocery store or beauty shop. The answer is: Don't hold your breath."
