Mail Call

"The Obama administration is proposing a large gas tax to help pay for the next bailout package. This will hurt us all."




"We need men in our communities who are honest, loyal and believe in fidelity. When young boys see honor bestowed upon men who have walked away from family commitments because of their self-seeking pleasures, what are these young boys learning? Why are the dishonest, disloyal and infidels raised up? And what about the moms who leave dads and believe their kids won't be affected? Pray for our youth. Pray for honest, trustworthy role models. Hide the infidel and bring on the honest, trustworthy role models."




"Commenting on Vision of Hagerstown -- how do you get the medical staffs in Hagerstown to realize there is a need for more educational programs for Chiari malformation and syringomyelia? There are plenty of empty buildings and people without jobs to make this happen. So many patients are being diagnosed wrong, being turned away for lack of knowledge and getting unneeded surgeries. For example, after many costly CT scans and MRIs, you have no results and thousands of dollars in bills. Something has to be done. These patients need help. They need more than a support group here in town. Someone has to step up and become a medical sponsor for that support group. You would think after years with chronic headaches, back pains and carpal tunnel symptoms and more, wouldn't you think someone would see just how important the need is?"

"With respect to the posting commenting on the Washington County New Year's baby's parents having the same last name, that isn't the half of it. So did the Martinsburg and Waynesboro babies have married parents. Three out of three beats the odds. Congratulations to the parents. An old-fashioned commitment."

-- Greencastle, Pa.




"Obama already has one of the people Reagan fired lined up to work on bringing the Fairness Doctrine back, which will hinder freedom of speech and will try to get rid of conservative radio/TV. In a world of liberal Democrats in media, Hannity, O'Reilly, Limbaugh are the only real truth we have, but for how long?"

-- Hagerstown




"Thanks, Tim Rowland, for another year of laughs, and for holding up the mirror to the officials and residents of Washington County."

-- Boonsboro




"I just read in the paper about the person, whoever has a friend that doesn't speak English. ... I feel this way: they should be able to be fluent, be able to speak English, or go back to their own country. Please print this. You never print anything I've sent in."

-- Hagerstown




"I am telling you, there is someone on Broadway Street trapping animals and turning them in to the SPCA. In today's economy, do you really think people (have) hundreds of dollars to spend to retrieve their animal that should have never been trapped anyway? We went out there, we retrieved our animal, we spent money that we didn't really have. It cost us about a week's worth of gas and a week's worth of food to just pay for our little cat to come home. Never have we had a problem, but I was told by the SPCA worker, this is a very big deal."




"I'm calling about the pollution in the bay. I think it's about time it should be stopped. It's not from the farmers. I agree with the caller. It's the sewage plants ... and it should be paid for by now. I think it's time to stop it."




"In November, I attended a '50s show at The Maryland Theatre -- fantastic show -- the Platters, Drifters, Coasters and Temptations. It was so nice to be able to understand every word they sang. Their voices were absolutely beautiful, (it) made the hair on your arms stand up. The people were singing along and dancing in the aisles. Good, clean fun. It was a full house, and I'm sure it will be the next time. Please bring more groups like this to the theater. I know I will be first in line."

-- Hagerstown




"You know, you hear about all the stray animals that need help, and all the ones that people find and the ones that don't have a home. I want to tell you why that is. Because it's too expensive to have them spayed or neutered, and the vets want you to make an appointment, get their shots and then bring them back for another visit to have them spayed. They give you no break and that is why there's so many animals ... give up a little bit, then there wouldn't be this problem. So in case you want to have a pet spayed or neutered, you have to have two appointments, which are about $100 for the first one and about $200 for the second one."




"Someone called before I did about the windows that are not historical. The historical windows that are wood will cost a lot for painting in future years. Do not change them now."

-- Williamsport
