"I read in the paper today about how much gas was a year ago, but I would like to know how much it was about three years ago, before it started going up. I think it was about $1.40."

- Hagerstown




"I am calling to say congratulations to the Honor Stars of Bethel Assembly of Hagerstown. The Honor Stars that I would like to congratulate for very hard work are Eliza, Kayla, Mariah, Paige, Samantha and Taylor. Great job, guys."

"I would like to thank the group Ballet and All That Jazz for their spring recital that was held this past weekend at The Maryland Theatre. Hagerstown really does have some very nice cultural events for people to attend, and I enjoyed it enormously."

"I'm calling in regard to the Daily Mail of Tuesday, May 23, in which I find a very large number of pro-Bush administration call-ins. I appreciate them because in the U.S., every problem that we are having in this day and age is the result of Democratic administration, going clear back to the days of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, when he appointed James Farley to be the officer in his administration who brought on our pensions. The pensions created a problem, which has come through historically like Constantine's administration did for the Roman empire. We suffer today from Democratic rule that had been laid down for us for many years. Anyone should vote only for Republicans, because even though there are problems at times, they are the party that will keep us somewhat stable."

"I'm just wondering why The Herald-Mail puts the alcohol drinking use from Clear Spring on the front page, but the ones from Halfway were back hidden on A13. There needs to be a little bit more fairness in this newspaper. What about all the kids from North and South High with weapons, that we never see in the paper, but Clear Spring has one and it's front page."

"I'm surprised that Bush didn't know about the storms, because the news media asked him about did he take advice from his father, and he said, no, he had a higher father."

- Hagerstown




"The greatest country on the face of the earth, the strongest so-called, has lost all its backbone. We're so scared of offending Mexico. Who in the world is Mexico? Do you realize that millions of illegal aliens have been using false Social Security numbers? They could be using your Social Security number right now, as we speak. I don't know about you, but I don't want somebody in California using my Social Security number to get a paycheck. I just don't understand it, how this government has become so spineless."

- Hagerstown




"I've been reading a lot lately about roadside memorials being a hazard, which is why I think we have cemeteries to pay our respects to our loved ones. It was not their final resting place, and it's dangerous to stop along a road. I'm sure your loved ones wouldn't want you to put yourself in danger. I also read that in Pennsylvania, they are mad about some of the store signs that are being taken down and being replaced with new illuminated signs. They're saying that they are too distracting to the drivers, and they're trying now to get the owners to take these signs down. What they don't realize is the real culprit is cell phones. I'm wondering how many memorials along the road have been put out due to cell phone use. Cell phones are a real hazard. People can't seem to drive and talk at the same time. They should only be used in case of emergencies in vehicles. They're the hazard."

"In (a recent column) someone from Funkstown said that on Rench Road there were very few houses, but 15 or 20 fire hydrants at various intervals. Well, I'm glad to know that, because now I can start up a housing development."

- Paramount




"This is to the lady who can't ride up and down East Franklin, East Washington, and Locust streets because of the crime, in her car. Pathetic, isn't it? Lady, I think you need to get out and walk around those streets. We've got a crime watch unit, and we run all the bothersome people to the west end of town. Read the newspaper, and see where all the arrests are being made - West End, South End, North End. There's one or two on Franklin, Washington, Locust and Mulberry streets and Cannon Avenue."

- Fiddlersburg




"I'm calling about the person from Berkeley Springs who called about the police going no slower than 90 mph, and why do they get away with it. Perhaps this person could become a policeman and find out why they're driving so fast."
