Mail Call

November 28, 2006

Here are some of the calls we have received lately:

"I wanted to respond to the Clear Spring article in Tuesday's paper that the Clear Spring band boosters were very pleased with the Clear Spring bingo. I guess it would be the Clear Spring fire company's bingo hall. Everything went well, we enjoyed it, and we think they should have more basket bingos to earn money for the band boosters. The Clear Spring fire company people were wonderful and the bingo caller did do a great job. I just agree 100 percent with that article. Thank you so much."

"I just love contemporary Christian music. I love the beat, and I love the words, because most of the choruses can be sung by any religion of any faith."

- Hagerstown




"To the caller who called in about the hospital being used as a training center: Great idea - perfect timing. I just read where HCC is building an addition, at guess whose expense again? The county taxpayers. We're giving money so they can increase programs. Medical classes could be taught at the hospital, and then this would free up space for other classes at the college, like HVAC, etc. They talked about it, and now we're being very practical, and possibly saving taxpayers' money. Please keep up the good ideas."

"In Tuesday's paper, Nov. 21, O.J. Simpson's book and TV special was killed off - thank God. He says 'If I did it.' None of us really knows if he did or didn't, but who in his right mind would put out a book that says 'If I did it' in which he describes how he would have killed his ex-wife? Only God knows whether he did or not."

"I know this is a little late, but this is a Veterans Day blessing that I found some time ago in a paper. It's called Veterans Day Blessing. 'Far away in a foreign land, brave soldiers trod the desert sand. For freedom of mankind they fight, in heat of day and cold at night. At great risk to life they contend, on land and sea they do defend. Male and female . . . much peril in a dangerous place. Ribbons of yellow everywhere, show support for those over there. And too, we display with much pride, our grand stars and stripes, far and wide. In this awful time of crisis, families have made sacrifices. Much courage and strength they display, remembering loved ones night to day. With angst and anxiety their hearts yearn for all a swift and safe return. Every daughter, every son, our prayers are with them, every one.'"

- Hancock




"I think whoever wrote in about the joggers on Dam Four Road or the walkathon, I think they're exactly right."

- Sharpsburg




"This is in response to the letter to the editor titled 'The state of Western Maryland.' I agree that the three most western counties in Maryland should secede from the rest of Maryland. I think they should tie in with the state of West Virginia."

- South Hagerstown




"The local man that has been through the court process again and was given life without parole - I guess I'll be seeing him again behind bars. I've been a correctional officer for many years, and I see these guys come back all the time. This man in particular I expected to see back, but this time it's gonna be forever - good."

- Hagerstown




"I'm not trying to be facetious, but I really would like to know the answer to this. I'm 58 years old, and when I grew up, there were no cell phones. Today everyone in the family has a cell phone -four or five telephones in the home . . . two, three cars, maybe more. Mother and father both working. None of this existed when I came up. It was one telephone, one everything. I never heard of anyone being homeless. We had no rehabs for people, because there was no drugs in school or any place. You never heard of drugs then. There was none of these food banks. You never heard of anyone saying 'Bring a can of food to church with you to give to the hungry.' I don't know what has happened to this world. I'm not blaming the government - I'm just wondering why this problem happens at all."

- Waynesboro, Pa.




"Today, reading Tim Rowland's column regarding Kevin Federline, I'm wondering if I was the only person that noticed in the article regarding him being in Wal-Mart that Kevin was asked to leave the store because there was so much chaos, which causes me to wonder if he should have been asked to leave the store. Should the people causing the chaos, asking for autographs, be asked to leave the store? Interesting column Mr. Rowland wrote."

- Charles Town, W.Va.




"I just want to express my appreciation for the tremendous work that The Herald-Mail employees did in filling out more than 100 cards for mailing to soldiers overseas. This certainly is a wonderful ministry and action that The Herald-Mail employees undertook. They ought to be highly congratulated. I certainly am looking forward also to the response letters coming back. One of the reasons I keep retaining The Daily Mail is because of actions such as this. The employees of The Daily Mail and Herald-Mail are some of the best employees in Hagerstown."
