Mail Call for 10-23

October 26, 2003

"I am calling concerning the problem in Williamsport. I am one of those residents who got two light bills in one month."

"I read Mail Call every night. There was one in there that said 'to the person who was appalled by our Williamsport Town Council allowing a resident to stand up and express her feelings.' Come on now, what our fine newspaper is doing, they are letting us know what is going on. How would people know what was going on if it weren't for that resident and the newspaper? That is why we have council meetings, to air things out, or didn't you know that. So don't say that the paper shouldn't have printed it. Would you have known about it if the paper wouldn't have printed it? Would you have known if the resident wouldn't have let us know? Good job, newspaper. Good job, resident. Thank you. Don't knock our newspaper."

"This is Leon. This is for a lady I met at the Kmart prescription counter several weeks ago. Her maiden name was Pettit and she was born in Virginia. She said she used to go to my grandmother's house. Would you please call me if you remember my last name. If you don't, call Mail Call."

"To the person who wanted to know where to get the deer whistles. We got our whistles from Wal-Mart and they work well."

"I am responding to the caller who wanted a piece of lemon meringue pie. All you have to do is buy a frozen lemon meringue pie and cut a piece out and let it thaw for 10 or 15 minutes. Then freeze the remaining pie until you want another piece."

"I have two points to make. First, to the person who wanted to know what the pink ribbons were for downtown. In case, you haven't noticed, this is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Also to the person who was talking about people parked in the handicapped spaces - just because someone can walk, doesn't mean that they aren't handicapped. Please, get a life."

"Not all handicaps are visible. Please keep this in mind. A lot of handicaps aren't visible to the naked eye."

"Here we go again about people parking in handicapped spots. I am a cancer survivor and, at times, I can't hardly walk. Thank God, my doctor saw this and gave me a handicapped sticker. I don't always use it, but there are times that I need to. Also, the pink ribbons are for Breast Cancer Awareness Month."

"About the deer whistles, they can be purchased at Wal-Mart for $7, they really work. We have been using them for about 20 years. I learned this from some hunters, it is the best thing we have ever used."

"The deer whistles can be bought at Kmart or Wal-Mart and they do work."

"To the person who is concerned about the people who park in handicapped signs and walk away like nothing, is wrong. Perhaps these people have heart trouble and can't walk very far, like myself. Feel lucky you don't need a handicapped sign. If you see someone walking away, have the nerve to walk up to them and ask them if they are handicapped. You just stay healthy and don't worry about other people."
