"This is to Mr. Barton, chairman of the Greater Hagerstown Committee. I don't trust you or any of them. They are all big business. You got the Washington County administrator, who is overpaid and should be out of office. You got the city of Hagerstown administrator, who is overpaid and should be out of office. You got the superintendent of the Board of Education, who is way overpaid and the rest of them are bankers and everything from bankers and doctors. They ain't for the poor person, they are for big business people so I don't trust none of you."
"I was wondering if someone knows why would they make duplex houses but they can't make them soundproof in between? It's so bad you can hear the neighbors talking on the phone and when you work third shift and you need to sleep during the day, it is so annoying."
"I was just calling about the reader who was having problems with black ants. If you just recently mulched around the house, then you might want to call an exterminator. A lot of times those black ants come with the mulch."
"May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month. The ozone is on the decline and skin cancer is on the rise. Wouldn't it be wise for city and county government who have crews working outside every day all day to supply sunscreen right along side the salt tablets, safety glasses, hard hats and orange vests? A ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. This may avert medical costs in the future."
"Can you tell me why are people on the south side of Hagerstown so unfriendly? We have been here well over a year now and it doesn't seem to be any activities, any jobs and I would like to know why."
"I've worked with these inmates for several years and as far as sex offenders go there wouldn't be any if their mothers wouldn't put the kids up to it to get divorced and take everything that the man ever worked for the rest of his life."
"I heard shots, it sound like gunshots at Long Meadow Shopping Center last night but I never saw any policemen show up. Don't they have something to do? Isn't that what we are paying them for?"
"I'm calling about the caller who called in about the commercial with the smoker and the child coughing. Use common sense; they probably used a actor. What's the big deal? There are people who do it every day and nothing is being said about that. They are just making the commercial more vivid for people to realize what kind of damage can be done by all this smoking, so just understand what the commercial is saying and use common sense."
"I'm just calling to say that no one wants to read about soccer in the paper. Soccer is a game that is communist and more feminine and most parents have their kids play soccer because they can't excel at anything else."
"I keep seeing signs about this team that is running for office in Hagerstown. Are these people so incapable of making decisions for themselves that they have to have backup? It's unbelievable."

"How come every time something goes wrong in the Ehrlich administration, either he didn't know it was going on or he blames the previous administration? I realize it's impossible to know everything that is going on but at least some of these things he should have known. These other people you surrounded yourself with, stop passing the buck. You asked for respect but government like this doesn't deserve the respect. This administration and also in the White House are very deceiving. Remember, these new taxes you are now pay are just fees."
"Why should we leave the sex offenders alone? We should have the right to know. I think they should be printed in the newspaper, every single one of them, so we know their name and address where they live so we know where to let our children go and not go."
