June 21, 2005

"For the crime victim in Warfordsburg: One, complain to the police chief if you believe the police are not doing anything. Two, ask the police to install cameras temporarily, Three, consider carrying a gun. Four, install infrared triggered lights and/or alarms inside and outside. Five, ask neighbors to watch and check your house often. Six, carry an old cell phone, it will still dial 911. Seven, write down tag numbers of cars that pass your house. Eight, wipe surfaces clean and then check for any new fingerprints that appear."

"I went to the Fairplay carnival and we were driving home and we saw this car in front of us throwing trash out. When we turned onto I-70 we noticed they were heading toward Hagerstown so it must be true about people throwing trash all over the place."

- Clear Spring




"Regarding the hospital move, I believe it should be moved closer to I-70, where the traffic can move freely. It was mentioned off Brownsville Road. This would relieve congestion and would be less expense to widen the road there than at Robinwood."

"I see the governor has decided to close the wage enforcement offices. As an employer now I can stiff my employees and there won't be nobody there to call me on it or prosecute me for it. That's great, I love this business-friendly governor."




"I was just wondering about the school teacher who was charged in the killing of the poodle. He donated $4,000 to the Humane Society and I was wondering if he had to pay any of the vet bills that this family had to endure trying to save their dog."

"Has anyone been noticing the changed dark roof spots on roofs that look like something has been spilled on them. I have them on mine. I've lived here four years. There's really no trees around. In fact, I can look out my window and see in the neighborhood other roof spots. This is quite mysterious, especially when you hear some helicopters in the area and you see signs posted everywhere saying 'we will clean roof spots.'"

- Washington County




"I was at a garage sale at Cross Creek off of Sharpsburg Pike, the new Poffensberger Road, and I brought a Fisher-Price Megasaurus from somebody that was having the garage sale and a lot of the pieces are missing and I called Fisher-Price and they no longer make this product and I wanted to know if the woman could get in touch with me or anybody else that has something like it with the missing pieces. They can't even put it together to make a dinosaur. My number is 301-393-4555."

- Hagerstown




"I would like to say congratulations to my husband, Chet Sheely, for retiring from Maryland Correctional Institution after being employed there for 24 years.

Your wife, Lanie."

"I'm calling about the telemarketing, I think it's a shame that they have to worry people, especially when they are doing something and they don't want to buy anything and they still call and worry you. I think there should be something done about this and I'd appreciate it very much. I'm sick and tired of getting these calls and half of the time they don't even know what they are doing. I'm sick and tired of getting these calls."

- Washington County




"I'm calling about the man from West Virginia who killed his dog by tying him to the railroad tracks. According to the paper, the lawyer said the man was an idiot for doing what he did but it wasn't torture. Hello, if tying down a living, breathing, creature so it could be run over by a train then what is? Note to the judge in this case, this man deserves the maximum penalty for this senseless crime."

- Greencastle, Pa.




"I'm calling about the stereos that were stolen out of vehicles. They can't blame that on my son."
