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:

"To state roads: Is Raven Rock Road the only road in the county that doesn't have road signs? Why is this? My mailing address is Raven Rock Road, Smithsburg, Md., and the same is true for all the other people who live up here on the mountain. I recently talked to an EMT from the Smithsburg Emergency Medical Services and he had no idea where it was. If you don't recognize it, come on, put up the signs."


"I just read where Bush is announcing plans to send Americans to Mars. He is sending them everywhere else, why not? I wonder how many people around here care?"

"Chambersburg and Frederick had the same shortage of beds at their hospitals the same time we did but you don't hear about them wanting to rebuild a new hospital."

"Even if you don't care for Charley Reese's column, please read the one in the Tuesday, Jan. 6 paper. It is well worth reading. You may learn something new."

"I want to thank Janet at the F&M Bank in Boonsboro for being such a wonderful teller. She has a great personality. I think the other tellers need to take a lesson from her."

"I am calling about the gas prices. What is going on with them? I think we need to do something like 'The Great American Smokeout.' We need a 'Gas Out' where everyone takes one day and does a strike at the gas pumps."

"To the person who just witnessed an illegal activity. First of all, you say they are dumping oil down the banks. Well, you know where that oil comes from, it comes from your car."
