You Said It

"As a 40-plus-year resident of Hagerstown, it sickens me to hear what is going on with North Hagerstown High School and the football stadium. When the founding fathers of the BOE decided to have two high schools, they decided that South Hagerstown would get the football (field) and North Hagerstown would get the auditorium. I was bused to North High to participate in various activities that needed the auditorium space. North High came to South High for their football games; that was only fair. North High always got more than whatever anybody else did in the county because that's where traditionally all the doctors, lawyers, dentists and all the wealthy people live. That's the old money of Hagerstown, and that's obviously, again, what is happening now in 2006. It's amazing how history repeats itself. The money rules. Follow the money, and the money in this town still is in the North End, and in the East End. The South End and West End continue to get the short end of the stick in all matters."

"I noticed something wrong during the warm-up for the Preakness on Saturday. As Barbaro was making a turn beside the lead pony, he made a misstep - not exactly a stumble, but as though he tripped or slipped in a hole, and jarred the jockey, I'm sure, because he seemed to notice the change in gait, and glanced at Barbaro's right rear. I think something happened right there that led to the disaster that followed, maybe even to his breaking through the gate in a false start. No one has mentioned this, but the tape merits review. I taped an hour and a half of it and saw the whole thing."

"When I first moved to Hagerstown, I moved into a pretty quiet neighborhood - really nice. But since I've been living here, it's been like a highway for loud stereos and speeding little cars. I work odd hours, and I'm beginning to wonder if we have anybody who actually works in this town, because it's the same vehicles day and night. These aren't just kids; I'm talking people in their 20s and 30s, I guess trying to show off and be a child again. I wouldn't want to be a policeman in this town and try to enforce all these laws because it's just too many people out there breaking them consistently. I'm a Hagerstown taxpayer."

"This call is for the person who was looking for a source to buy rhubarb plants. A catalog company called Gurney's Seed and Nursery Co. sells several varieties of rhubarb. It is located in Greendale, Ind. The phone number is 513-354-1492. I've ordered from this company many times over a good many years and I've always been very satisfied. They always take care of any problems, so I would recommend them to anyone who enjoys gardening. They do have rhubarb plants in their current catalog on page 18. Good luck with your rhubarb."




"To all police officers who walk out the door for duty: Please leave your bad attitude at home."
