Mail Call, June 22

June 23, 2005

"I think it's time for these council members here in Hagerstown to get off this hospital deal. They already wasted over $300,000. I think enough is enough and they are not going to stop it from going out there at Robinwood. All they are going to do is just spend more money and waste more taxpayers' money so I think they should get off of it, It's mostly the ones that were there before, it's not the new ones."

- Hagerstown




"I think that the police in our area should start doing what they are in some of the other cities, arresting illegal aliens for trespassing. Go out and get them."

- Williamsport




"I'm calling about the article that was in the paper about Maryland spending $3 million on road repairs. I certainly hope that they fix the bridges from Hancock to Hagerstown, east and westbound, they are in terrible shape. If they got $3 million dollars to spend, I hope they fix the bridges."

"I want to congratulate the Hagerstown Police Department for their recent accreditation. I wanted to thank our policemen for their dedicated service and protection over all the citizens in Hagerstown. Their efforts should be commended; it's certainly appreciated."

- Hagerstown




"Here is a idea that will never get approved because it's not politically correct. How about let's try and save some lives. How do we do that? We have mandatory on-the-road testing for anyone under the age of 25 and over the age of 65. Most of the people that are involved in accidents are either under 25 or over 65. The reason I say that is because you have these 65-and-plus-year-olds out there driving 25 mph on a 50 mph road. The younger people, including middle-age people like myself, get frustrated after driving behind these 'pokies' for miles and miles and miles and we lose our control and we do something that we know better and do something stupid and may cause an accident. In order to fix this situation, I propose testing annually anyone under age 25 or over age 65."

- Washington County




"This is to the Mail Caller that said the hospital has to be out in Robinwood where it belongs. How do you know that is where it belongs?"

- Hagerstown




"I'd like to thank the people of the Boonsboro Bible Church for putting on a fantastic Vacation Bible School for the children of our community. The children had such a wonderful time and also I'd like to say that I think the pastor seems to love the people of the community. He seems to be a real fun guy to let the children throw water balloons at him at the end of the week. They all had a really good time. Thanks again."

- Boonsboro




"I think it's totally outrageous that the city of Hagerstown is going to erect a monument to veterans, but only honor the dead veterans. What about all the other wounded veterans? All veterans should be included in that monument. I find that very unpatriotic on the part of the city of Hagerstown."

- Hagerstown




"I just heard a thing on the radio about the National Guard. Aren't the reserves supposed to protect the homeland? I mean, isn't that the reason for the constitution, so what in the world are they doing over in Iraq and Afghanistan? Is there anyone left over here to fight for us? I never believed in guns but maybe I need to get one."

- Hagerstown




"We just had some company come up from the city and they admired the large yards we had but they couldn't understand why we didn't water them and why we let the sun kill our grass."

- Hagerstown




"Next time somebody says they are proud to be an American, think of this. I saw a episode on The Discovery Channel that we have enough reserves to take care of every car in this country, we have enough food to feed every child in this country, yet we keep forking everything out to other countries and then we have to take everything from other countries to do it. Is that stupid or what?"

- Hagerstown




"I have called the Washington County Roads Department two times within the past two weeks concerning a dead animal on Pangborn Boulevard. Each time they said it would be taken care of. With all the cars running over it and the birds picking on it, the only thing that is left is the fur on the dead animal. Today the fur is still spread out in the road. What does it take to have this taken care of?"

- Washington County




"What kind of a city is Hagers-town who will ignore a veteran simply because he did not get killed in action?"

- Sharpsburg




"On Sunday, June 12, my 88-year-old mother fell on the parking lot on the corner of Spruce and Howard streets and broke her nose. There were two gentlemen who stopped to assist her and stayed until the ambulance arrived. I would like to thank them again. I didn't get their names but they were greatly appreciated for all their help and may God bless them."

- Smithsburg
