"Thanks for the help on finding the keys from Dam 5 Road. I appreciate you returning them to me."
"As many have pointed out, it is difficult to tell if someone is really handicapped. It is a matter of honesty and conscience. However, what is wrong, when a car has a legitimate handicapped license, but the handicapped person remains in the car while an un-handicapped person goes into the store."
"Would someone print a phone number for Welfare Fraud, but you can remain anonymous."

"For the lady who wants to send money to feed the children. We have children right here in Hagerstown that go to bed hungry at night. Please give the money to a church so they can give right here at home and not send it out of our town."
"I was approached by a man in the parking lot of Big Lots last Wednesday evening. He told me he was sleeping on a park bench and needed money for a meal. I told him, if he would walk up to the Chinese restaurant in that shopping center, that I would pay for his meal. He threw up his hands and went up and sat down in front of the store. I guess he was only looking for money for a bottle."

"Who invented the new theory that houses produce children and therefore should be further burdened with more taxes? Houses simply shelter children and only one out of three have school aged children. Children are produced by people, not houses. If the two-century American tradition of the whole community being responsible for the education of our children, is somehow no longer valid, then perhaps they could section tax, which would be more appropriate than raising the cost of a new home beyond the reach of an average American family."
"Way to go Hagerstown, that is real intelligent of you, sending our children out to trick-or- treat on a Friday night. The busiest night of the week, people rushing around, drunks out. Real intelligent, who was the Einstein who thought of this? Certainly wasn't us citizens."
