Mail call from 7/13/05

July 14, 2005

"I want to congratulate my little Fluffy for learning to sit. Mommy loves you."

- Hagerstown




"I'm so tired of the congratulations to relatives in this column. Doesn't anyone hug their children and tell them they are proud of them and then give them another big hug like I do? Since when do kindergartners, first-, second, third- and fourth- graders read the newspaper? Get a life, people."

- Hagerstown




"Would the person who is burning trash and garbage on Edgewood Drive please try to refrain from doing that because people, when it's nice outside, would like to open their windows for some fresh air once in awhile and it sure does get stinky in the evenings."

- Hagerstown




"I'm calling about the North High School 1985 reunion. I was wondering, I know it's Nov. 17, but I didn't get to save the paper to see how much or where it was to be held or where to send your money to. Could someone please put that back in Mail Call for me?"

"This is to the person who called in and said it's about respect for what you wear to church. First of all, God doesn't judge so who are you to judge?"

- Hagerstown




"West End Baptist Church would love to have all the people out there who are judgmental come to their church and see that God really doesn't care what you wear as long as you're there."

- Hagerstown




"I want to say congratulations to Aaron who is playing for National Little League in the All-Stars tournament. On Friday, July 1, he pitched a one-hitter and had a grand slam, his first. Needless to say, he was thrilled the same as his friends and family were. Good luck, Aaron, and we love you. Congratulations to you and the team. Good luck the rest of the way."

- Williamsport




"In reference to Sunday's paper about the girls riding motorcycles. I think it's a good thing that girls are riding motorcycles."

- Hagerstown




"I see where an 80-year-old woman has to have her house painted. Why don't the inspectors look at the houses on West Church Street in Hagerstown? Please send the inspectors to that street."

- Hagerstown




"I don't want the street lights in Greenberry Hills. If you want them, put your own up. Why should everyone pay for something that only a few want? If crime is gonna happen, it's gonna happen, street lights or not."

- Halfway area




"I'm amazed after going to town today on a very hot day to see how many people go into stores and just leave their cars running while they're in the stores. You must be very wealthy. You're polluting the environment and wasting way too much gasoline and it just seems ridiculous. Are you so special that you can't sweat for a minute when you get back into your car? We have thousands of soldiers sacrificing their lives for oil and yet we can't take one step of prevention to preserve gasoline. People need to turn their cars off and not be so selfish. If you're going into a store, then shut your car off."

- Sharpsburg




"Thank you to whoever found my ATM card at Martin's on Wesel Boulevard on Sunday afternoon and turned it into the customer service. I certainly do appreciate it and I hope you always have good luck like I did."

- Williamsport




"I'm calling in reference to the caller who was congratulating the children for graduating from kindergarten and I think that's pretty academic for graduating from kindergarten. I would be concerned for any child who didn't graduate from kindergarten, so my suggestion is to anyone out there who has not yet graduated from kindergarten to put it in the paper so we can get them some help."

- Hagerstown




"I read the cop log every day and see that Smithsburg is finally cleaning up that town. Drug dealers are being brought down and repeat sexual offenders are being caught."

- Washington County




"A person said they had money in their pocket during the Clinton administration but is now one paycheck from being in the street under Bush. I don't believe them. Just another roundabout way to bash Bush."

- Boonsboro




"If you think a gallon of gasoline is expensive, check this out. A gallon of Chanel No. 5 perfume is $46,000."

- Hagerstown




"I'm calling about everyone who wants to impeach Bush. Go talk to the people who came from a Third World country like I have. I work in a plant in Frederick and we have people from Cambodia, Asia, Vietnam, India and so forth. Very, very big population there. We actually call it the melting pot of Frederick. When we had Sept. 11, they were the only ones who had enough common courtesy and decency to form a circle in our lunch room and pray that something would be done to punish the people who hurt the United States."
