You Said It

October 30, 2006

"I'm calling regarding the endorsement by The Herald-Mail for Douglas Mullendore for sheriff. In the article it does state that The Herald-Mail is endorsing Doug Mullendore, but the entire article is basically talking about Rich Poffenberger in a positive way. I think it's a good thing, but it really should say that The Herald-Mail is endorsing Poffenberger - and I hope he wins."




"This is in reply to the person who says it would be sensible to have daylight-saving time 12 months a year. You obviously do not have children or grandchildren who get on school buses at 7 a.m., which right now is in the dark. Think of their safety. One hour makes a big difference. Thank you."

"Commissioner candidate Swartz is proposing a free college education and real estate relief for elderly with an income under $25,000. There are not a lot of elderly with a gross income under $25,000 burdened with large real estate tax bills. Many of them have been forced to give up their homes and move into government-subsidized housing or leave Washington County, for Pennsylvania in particular. Candidate Swartz says this free education and tax relief is already paid for. Where did the money come from? Where's the money now? And remember, there needs to be enough to last until eternity."

"I think it's pretty bad when the City of Hagerstown starts calling and harassing people about having vehicles on their property that has tags and is insured. They need to start walking around here and looking at the vehicles on the properties that don't have tags and stuff. This is getting to be a little ridiculous. I own my own property and I should be able to park my cars in my yard if I want to. They're trying to tell me now that I have to have my yard black-topped and my driveway to park my vehicles on there. It's getting as bad as Baltimore and D.C. Things need to change around this city."

"I find it interesting how Mr. Muldowney has criticized everything Mr. Donoghue has or hasn't done. It makes me wonder how Mr. Perfect got defeated (in) his last election."

"I live in a development in Boonsboro. I am paying outrageous fees for homeowners association dues and yet nothing is being done. There are cars parked in driveways without tags, there are boats parked in people's yards and there are trailers parked on sidewalks - so I have no idea why I'm paying these high (fees). When I talked to the homeowners association president, he says it's going for a good cause. What kind of good cause is this?"

"Hagerstown City Council is voting to cut or put a cap on property taxes, city taxes. Where's our Washington County commissioners? How about putting a cap on our taxes here in the county?"

"To the lady that called in about she loves deer: I love them, too - deer bologna and deer jerky."

- Sharpsburg




"Thank you, Mr. Burrs, for your editorial 'Bartlett's talk mismatches his walk.' How right you are. Too bad the paper didn't look into this closer. Andrew Duck is definitely the candidate for the people in the 6th District."




"I think we should have year-round standard time. We would save a lot of money on our utility bills and the children wouldn't have to walk to the school buses in the dark."

"If the TV stations don't quit putting on George Bush and this Steele man, I think people are gonna turn their TV off until after the election. It is very disturbing."

- Boonsboro




"People want to condemn the Dixie Chicks for what they say about Bush, which is freedom of speech. What should people do to Rush Limbaugh, sitting at his desk making fun of Michael J. Fox's disease?"

- Clear Spring




"When is someone gonna ask Mr. Muldowney what cost him his bid for re-election when he was in the House before? And why did the teachers campaign against him at that time?"

- Williamsport




"This goes out to the Williamsport caller who's worried about somebody being put in jail with somebody who may have done a bigger crime. There's one thing that you have to remember and think about. If any of these people in your family or whatever broke the law, then they broke the law. If they put them in jail with a convicted criminal - bummer days - they broke the law. Maybe they shouldn't break the law and they wouldn't be in jail in the first place. Just think about that."
