Mail Call

February 17, 2004

"The Board of Education does not need high speed Internet in the schools. Why any Internet? Get back to the basics in school, something the children will use the rest of their life. We have good teachers in our schools, let them take control of their classroom. Dr. Morgan, you can pay for Internet out of your salary, along with the other people you brought from the city, or put it in the budget, but don't ask the senior citizens to pay for Internet when we don't have Internet ourselves."




"I think we have had enough Mail Calls about that 86-year- old woman and about snow removal. Let's talk about something else."




"There is so much advertising about Viagra on TV lately. What has happened to the men of today, are they all wimps?"




"I want to know if anyone can answer a question for me. Has the parking lot at the old bank on Prospect Avenue become public parking? If so, I think everyone should park there when it snows because I have come by there day in and day out and have seen snow covered cars sitting there for three or four days at a time. Everyone should park there so they don't have to shovel a place to park."

"I just read the Charles Town Races and Slots are expanding. Way to go Charles Town. Wake up, Maryland."




"I would like to know if someone could tell me whether after the age of 70, do you have to file income tax. I have been told, if you are only on Social Security, you don't have to file. Is this true?"




"What is the mayor of Frederick and the judges going to gain by releasing this so-called black book? Doesn't anyone think of the families and the children. Don't just think about the man who did wrong, think about the rest of their family. So what will be gained? Nothing but sadness and unhappiness. If I were a mayor, I could not do this to a family and I don't think it's right."




"I find it ironic that the county commissioners overrode the planning commission with the development of the Stiles property in Boonsboro and sided with the town of Boonsboro, saying they needed to be able to expand their borders. But yet they don't see the situation in the same way for the city of Hagerstown, which also needs to expand its borders."
