"Still waiting to hear what Mr. Headlee is going to do about the pornographic cartoon that appeared on the comics page which is supposed to be for families."

- Hedgesville, W.Va.




"The names for the Smithsburg Elementary School Destination ImagiNation team in Mail Call should have been Gasmine, Kaylyn, Adler, Connor, Jasmine, Mary and Deanna."




"Last Tuesday evening around 10 p.m. I had to go to the emergency room with second-degree burns on my hands. I would like to say thank you so very much to everyone for your professional care and kindness. Keep up the good work. We need you and I hope you get a new hospital soon."

- Halfway




"Is there anybody out there as old as I am, 75, who remembers the Boonsboro hotel back in the '40s and '50s when they were open and selling the best steamers that were ever made? If anybody has any idea what the recipe might have been, please give me a call at 301-797-7429."

"Now that Congress has solved the steroids in baseball problem, maybe they can tackle the all-pressing issue of instant replay in the NFL."

- Smithsburg




"Bob Bruchey lost the mayor's race once to Bill Breichner and now he's going to hand it to him on a silver platter. Since he has a write-in campaign, he will split the Republican vote and Breichner will be mayor again. He's acting like a spoiled child. He might as well campaign for Breichner."

- Hagerstown




"I would like to comment on the public school system always asking for money. How can they afford two new teachers for Smithsburg High School? They only need one and that is the one that has been there for many years."

- Washington County




"If you're looking for a 1950 yearbook, I think if you go to Rest Haven Cemetery Chapel they would have a 1950 yearbook there."




"I would like to comment on Bob Bruchey. I think it's ridiculous the way he has attacked Mr. Trump. I myself personally spoke with Mr. Trump on the phone and I never detected a speech impediment. So what if he has a speech impediment? There are a lot of people who have disabilities and are very smart and very unique individuals. To you, Mr. Bruchey, give up because even if I could I wouldn't vote for you."

- Hagerstown




"I want to thank the unknown angel who found my purse in Wal-Mart and turned it in completely intact. People talk about others not being honest and all, but this angel definitely was. I want to thank this person from the bottom of my heart."

- Washington County




"It won't be long now until women will be writing love letters to Scott Peterson. It won't be long now until they'll be offering marriage."

- Boonsboro




"The people have been writing in about their child being cut from high school baseball. I think they're used to Little League where you have to play everybody. As they graduate through the ranks, high school just takes the best and I think it's hard for the parents to realize that their son is not that good."

- Washington County




"I laughed when I read Republican candidate Trump's statement that he is inviting everyone to the table. Everyone, that is, who is on his slate of candidates. I don't trust slates and that is why I am voting for Bob Bruchey for mayor."

- Hagerstown




"I would like to know if the people in this country can get any help at all with the price of gas going up. Do we have any governors or anyone who cares? It keeps going up and no one cares anything about it. Is there any answer or doesn't anybody care about it? Do they care about the poor? This is outrageous."

- Sharpsburg




"No, I don't think they should allow fishing at City Park. Why should they turn City Park into a dump? The fishermen would just leave all their trash there before they left."

- Hagerstown




"I like to decorate my house for the different seasons and put little things around my front door and apparently someone also liked the way I decorated the front door and had enough nerve to steal my sign. It was a bunny on a fence and had a little bit of grapevine with it but they actually walked up my steps and took my welcome sign right off my front door. I wonder if they have enough gumption to return that sign. They had enough to take it. They should have enough to put it back. This was on Bruce Street in Hagerstown."




"I'd like to comment on the article where they said that you should allow fishing at City Park and I think that would be a very bad idea. Those fish hooks could really tear up those ducks and swans."

- Hagerstown




"Two years after the war started there still are no weapons of mass destruction. The Iraqi people have less electricity, less water and unemployment is higher than before the war and yet the president tells us everything is better. Now barbers are being killed, policemen are blown up everyday and more than 1,500 Americans are dead. This war was a joke based on lies and perpetrated by Bush and the American people are too stupid to realize it."

- Sharpsburg




"I can't believe they are going to starve this poor Terri to death. Someone has to step in and save this poor woman's life."

- Halfway
