You Said It

August 21, 2006

"Terrorists, murders, wars and disease; Katrina, inflation, gangs, killer bees! All that stuff waits while our town debates, does a cheeseburger gotta have cheese?"




"Regarding the issue of what to wear to church, I believe that, whether it be character, commitment, belief or attire, we should present our very best to God when entering His house for worship. If God doesn't deserve our very best, who does?"

- Washington County




"This is in reference to the comment about the Gaming Commission donations that were recently published. I would think that the Gaming Commission has specific and strict requirements for groups applying for money, the most important being that each group prove they are a nonprofit organization. So whether you're a 'certain majorette group' or any other organization, once you've established that you are nonprofit, you won't receive money unless you go through the process of qualifying and applying. I'm sure all of the groups that received money proved they are nonprofit and are sincerely appreciative of the donation. Thanks, Gaming Commission!"

"To the person that wrote in about the police doing a good job, and better on a bicycle than walking a beat: Evidently, you live on Broadfording Road and you do not live in the town, so you don't know what I see. You haven't heard what I've heard in the last month, three months. Come into Hagerstown, not Broadfording Road. Maybe the gangs and the problems will come up on your road and then we'll see who has a problem. Think about it."

- Hagerstown




"I would like to know exactly, between the County Commissioners and the BOE, what has been done productively to eliminate the overcrowding problem that we have in our schools. We've known about it now for five years; we've repeatedly been told that there's a problem. I'd like to know now what precisely has been done to correct the existing problem. I haven't heard anything. Just give the public that information, because I truly think the public is gonna respond when we vote in November, loud and clear, that we want answers."

- Washington County




"After a death at the Milner (Road) railroad crossing, something is being done about it. Is that what it is going to take to get a light (near) Citicorp? I hope it is not one of your loved ones or mine. Don't think it can't happen."

- Greencastle, Pa.




"Ehrlich is not the problem in Maryland. It's our former governor. Ehrlich has done a good job in trying to get Maryland back on the right path, after Glendening for years put us in the red."

- Hagerstown




"This is a response to the person who thought that it wasn't a big deal for people to park away from the curb. It is a big deal when you almost hit a car because they're over a foot, maybe two feet out into your lane and you have nowhere to go but either to hit that car or the car beside of you. So if you think that shouldn't be a law, you have a problem."

- Hagerstown




"Congratulations to the Clear Spring FFA team that received 15th place in an international competition held in Manitoba, Canada. Their two ag teachers always do a great job and should be highly commended."

"It's probably been a couple weeks or so since the correctional officer was killed in Jessup, and I was just wondering what Ehrlich decided to do about it. I guarantee you if it would have been an inmate that died at the jail under a correctional officer's watch, we'd have done been fired, so what's the difference?"

- Hagerstown




"I'm calling about the article that was in there the other day about a Republican that said he would vote for Schaefer if he could, etc. This is exactly why people get mad enough not to vote, because of people like this. See what the governor of the state of Maryland did to the taxpayers of this state that he's supposed to look out for, and this guy has the gall and the audacity to say just because everybody in his family before voted Republican, he's going to. Come on, people, use your head. I'm a Democrat. I voted for Ehrlich last time - he ain't getting my vote this time. Let's get somebody in here different."

- Hagerstown




"Seeing the sneer on Brandon Morris' face on the front page of The Daily Mail of Aug. 15 made me sick to my stomach. To think that taxpayers may have to support him for many years blows my mind."

- Fairplay




"If they have the music fest in downtown Hagerstown in October or whenever, I can't see how they are allowed to have drinks down there. If you can't drink out in the public, it's against the law to drink out in the public other times, how can they drink on the streets in Hagerstown? I wouldn't want to bring my children there if they have drinks, and I'm sure the older people don't want to come there if they have drinks. Some of them will be drinking so much that they won't even know their way out of town. I think it's so wrong to do that."

- Boonsboro




"These 22 terrorists, all they found on them was rubber bands and paper clips - no passports. They couldn't go anywhere."

- Clear Spring
