You Said It

December 21, 2005

"I'd like to compliment the city workers for their response to the power outage early Friday morning, Dec. 16, affecting East Franklin Street. They responded within an hour and had power restored by 4:30 a.m. I really want to compliment them for their efforts. They did a terrific job. I want to thank all those fellows, and I'm sure my neighbors do, too."

"Whatever happened to the beautiful old Christmas carol 'Good King Wenceslas'? We sang it when I was in school (I graduated in the late 1940s). I haven't heard it in a long time. Also, what happened to families making sure their older relatives were taken care of? People used to come to the house, shovel the walks and make sure people could get in and out, and make sure they had plenty to eat. Most families have gone to pot. There are very few caring families anymore. Families should be full of love and kindness."

"This is to the caller who compared one's belief in God with the moon being made of green cheese. If you were attempting to make an intelligent argument, the only thing you did was prove your complete ignorance. If you want to argue that God does not exist, do so with something factual. You have no facts to back up your claims. The Bible says the fool is set in their heart that there is no God. Congratulations, you've proved that to be true."




"On Sharpsburg Pike, there is a beautiful Colonial home with a set of the most beautiful carolers on the front porch. I'd like to say to please turn on those Christmas lights more often, and would you mind responding through (You Said It) as to where you got your beautiful carolers? Merry Christmas."

"Thanks to former county commissioner and former board of zoning appeals chairman Harold Boyer for publicly revealing the facts surrounding the hospital's bold attempt to place an acute care facility in a residential area, where they previously said it would not be built. It's unfortunate that the local press and county officials have been swayed by the current hospital CEO's falsifications regarding the basis for previous zoning decisions of record, without the press ever having interviewed those involved. So much for in-depth reporting. The hospital CEO's contention that zoning decisions of more than 14 years ago should be overlooked, and the current board of zoning appeals falling prey to a false line of reasoning that cries for appeal, will only further delay an appropriately sited hospital, which everyone seems to agree is needed."

"Everyone should have a mind of their own, which I do. I've always said 'Merry Christmas' and called our tree a Christmas tree, and I intend to keep doing so, regardless of what other people say."

"Well, it's that time of year again - I'm trying to get a present for my son. Last year, it was a season pass to the city municipal Hagerstown golf course. It looks like it will be the same this year. I can't understand why Black Rock doesn't have a season pass, at least for Washington County or city residents, homeowners and taxpayers. All of the other area courses have season passes. Have a happy new year."




"I'd just like to alert everyone to check the new phone book to make sure your name is in it, if you've requested it to be. Mine wasn't, and thank goodness a friend told me. If your name isn't in the book, I suggest you call the phone company and see what they can do to help you."

"I would like to thank the two snow angels who were in the salt truck this morning, working in the city of Williamsport. They helped Rosie get from her apartment to Sheetz to do her job. This is her daughter, and we thank you very much."

"I'm calling in regards to the comment that with the economy the way it is, who could possibly have a nice Christmas. I lost my $27-per-hour job due to an injury, and now make $950 a month, but I still have a family that loves me and cares about me, and I am going to have a merry Christmas regardless. Maybe you need to look at things a little differently."

- Hancock




"In Halfway, we no longer have a post office, and I just wonder what's going on. Funkstown, Fairplay, St. James and Clear Spring have post offices, and I think it's time we had a post office in Halfway. I would like to hear other people's comments."
