Mail Call for 7/24

July 25, 2003

"Way to go, Conococheague 9-10 All-Stars. You are so awesome, boys. Keep up the good work. You hit the States this week."




"Impeach Bush? Why should the people bother? Bush isn't the legitimate president, anyway."




"To everyone involved in trying to find our beloved little dog 'River' on Monday night. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. A special thank you to the folks who were brave enough to run into the middle of Eastern Boulevard to rescue our pups and then spent hours trying to connect us up again. All of you, we wish you the kind of happiness and peace that you brought to us that evening. I hope you never have to experience the loss of an animal. God bless you all."




"In response to the person in Mail Call. I am a senior and I am an excellent driver and guess what? I drive the speed limit. These young people who are in such a hurry drive 40 in a 25-mile zone. They pass on double lines, driving like a maniac. They blow the horn and use obscene gestures. They are the ones you need to re-test. Put a guard on that accelerator pedal. It's a proven fact that speed kills."

"In Mail Call someone mentioned that the elderly should take a driving test, once they get to a certain age. I agree. About 10 to 15 years ago, an 84-year-old man ran into the back of my antique car. It completely totaled it. He wasn't hurt because he was in one of those big Cadillacs. He kept telling the officer that I pulled out in front of him from a parking space. I was in bed at the time, sleeping. I was woken up by the police officers. This poor guy didn't even know where he was. He kept saying his nearest relative was a sister in Florida. He had children here in Hagerstown. I felt bad for him because he didn't know where he was. He had a newly issued driver's license."




"I think every driver should be re-tested every five to 10 years because they all forget what stop, yield, and right of way means. Turn signals do not give you the right of way to cut in. You don't pass when the sign says don't pass. So, if you want to get picky, re-test everyone. By the way, I am 45 years old."




"I would like the person who rear-ended me while waiting on the green light at the Martin's at the Fountainhead Plaza intersection. My number is 301-790-3384. After you hit my car, I went through the intersection. I pulled over onto the shoulder. I came out of my car in hopes to talk to you to show you the damage to my car. However, you were gone. This was so dishonest. Please contact me."




"My name is Mike. I was wondering if there is any information about a 15-year North High reunion for this year. It is for the class of 1988. Call me at 301-766-0721."
