"I got married in August, and I would like to thank everybody from the bottom of my heart for all the gifts they gave to me and my wife. Thank you so much; we really appreciate it. This saves us a lot of time and stamps to do this in (You Said It) instead of sending out thank-you cards."

"To the person who said that marriage should be abolished, read the second chapter of the book of Genesis in the Holy Bible. God made a man and a woman and performed the first marriage. Incidentally, it was between one man and one woman. Don't try to destroy what God has created."

"I'd like to comment on the veterans memorial wall at Marty Snook Park. There's a plaque on the wall that has the names of people who donated toward construction. That plaque really does nothing but deface the entire wall. It's made of cheap plastic and covered in clear plastic, and moisture builds up in it. I'd be ashamed to have that on such a beautiful piece of work for the veterans. The Joint Veterans Council of Washington County needs to take action on this and get a new plaque made with the names sealed. It doesn't have to be brass; it could be plastic, but it should be more presentable and not detract from the beauty of the wall."

"I read in the paper about the 20-year-old car that they want to sell that's wearing out. The windshield's cracked, it needs new brakes and the odometer doesn't work correctly. Why don't they just junk it instead of trying to make a couple of dollars off of it?"

"I would like to thank the fine nurses and their aides who helped me at Washington County Hospital from Jan. 5 to Jan. 9, especially Kim and Sandy on the fifth floor."

"This is in response to the Williamsport caller who said he was sick of the whining about Halfway not having a post office anymore. Put it this way: If they moved the post office out of Williamsport to Pinesburg or to Downsville, I'm sure it would please that person very much. Williamsport has it made as far as the post office. As a town, it's only four blocks by six blocks in size."




"I'm reading the Wednesday, Jan. 11, Mail Call comment about prisoners being treated better than schoolchildren. The caller has a really good point, and I agree."

"I live in the Clear Spring area, and I saw in the Wednesday, Jan. 11, (paper) where someone said that they thought Clear Spring should be a little bit more developed, with a strip mall. I work in the Boonsboro area and I see where they're adding all kinds of things. With the development, the area is getting very congested and traffic is getting horrible. The schools will soon be filled to the hilt. We do have a few friendly local grocery stores (in Clear Spring). We don't need all that (new development.) We like our Clear Spring the way it is."

"On any given day, an inmate can have 24 cans of soda in his possession at the correctional institution south of Hagerstown. Each day, an employee is allowed to take in two sealed bottles of water only for their day's consumption. What is wrong with this picture?"

"This is to the Hagerstown individual who stated that marriage is ridiculous. Obviously, you have never been married, or are divorced. Marriage can be great if both people are committed to making it work. This society is so quick to throw things away. It takes a lot more effort and commitment to make a marriage work than to take the ever-so-popular divorce highway."

"About all these banks getting robbed, I don't know why the banks can't afford to put an armed security guard in the bank at all times. You don't see too many armored cars getting robbed because they have armed personnel in them."

- Washington County




"I would like to know what the general public thinks seniors are supposed to do. I know that there will soon be 70 million of us. I was on disability with some serious illnesses for quite awhile, and when I turned 62, Social Security tells me that I'm no longer disabled, but that I'm early retired. I lost all my medical care. My husband is in a nursing home. What am I supposed to do for medical care? I'm not eligible for anything. I guess the next step is what Hitler did. Just take all of us old folks out and shoot us, and get us out of the way."
