Editor's note - Please be as brief as possible when calling Mail Call, The Daily Mail's reader call-in line.

Mail Call is not staffed on weekends or holidays so it is best to call Mail Call during the week. The Mail Call number is 301-791-6236.

You are welcome to leave a recorded message on any subject, but some calls will be screened out.

Here are some of the calls we have received lately:

"My name is Bonnie and I saw in the opinion thing last week where someone wanted to know what to do with cards. I collect all kinds of cards and I take out the parts of them, cut them out and give them to the older and younger people in my church to do projects with. Call me at 301-582-0206."


"I want to thank and commend the trash collection men who were so kind and helpful to me. Due to an illness, they helped me take the trash to the curb. Thanks for all the hard work they do in all kinds of weather. God bless them all. From a lady on Winston Drive."

You ladies truly are the best of the best and I can't thank you enough. God bless each and every one of you and may you have a very happy new year. Thanks, from your patient, Tammy."

"I guess since it's time to renew the contract for the Hagerstown city employees, I guess we will start seeing articles in the paper where the city wants to raise taxes to help pay for their employees' benefits. They will start telling everyone that they don't have any money, but they can't hide the money that they are putting into the Fairgrounds."

"I was wondering if anyone has some private property that my husband, son and beagle can go rabbit hunting? He will share half of the rabbits with you. If so, call Mail Call and leave your phone number."
