Mail Call

June 08, 2009

"I'd just like to say thank you to the liquor board, for finally having the guts to do something to these places that habitually have fights and underage drinking. Your previous punishment to these places was just a joke. Now maybe the places will get their message. Keep it up." - Hagerstown

"This is in reply to the Mount Lena caller who complained that his or her cat was suffering because it was being sprayed with yellow hair stuff. I hope this person realizes that if the cat were kept indoors, this couldn't happen. Outdoor cats kill thousands of songbirds. Responsible pet owners keep their cats indoors." - Cearfoss

"I was born here. I've called in several times. I don't think that we should pay for Muhammad to be appealing his sentence. He was guilty and he needs to be put to death." - Hagerstown

"Sgt. Kevin Day, that heard the cries of puppies from the dump where he was at: You are an angel from heaven. If we had just a few like you, this world would be a better place. Thank you. God bless you." - Hagerstown


"I'm reading the paper this morning and I see that Boonsboro High School is due to be modernized in 2022. How do you modernize something that should be totally torn down and rebuilt over, with the age of the school? I know; I work there. I've seen the inside. Come on, county." - Boonsboro

"Was just reading in Wednesday's paper how Obama's going to tax health-care benefits. Before the election, he was blasting McCain because he was talking about taxing health care. The Democrats seem to talk out of both sides of their mouth." - Lappans

"Do this: Research records. BOE did indeed purchase a pontoon boat. Where'd it go, and when, and who is in control of it? You'd be surprised. Ask for their records. How long did they keep it and what did they do with it? Oh, it's supposed to be for anthropological studies and biological studies. Who was out there on the boat partying and doing what they needed to do? Look at your staff right now, and there's a number of them that have relatives there that did that. Find out what happened to the boat, if it even existed." - Washington County

"It is so frustrating when you call a company or business or the government and all you get is automated information. And I recently called Washington County, one of the offices, government offices, and they advised me then to go to their Web site. So I went to their Web site, got information about weed control, then I got on the phone and called the phone number for weed control, only to find out that weed control for the county no longer has an office. They should at least keep their Web site up." - Clear Spring

"It's about time these judges start handing out jail time for animal cruelty instead of letting these people off the hook with probation and community service." - Greencastle, Pa.

"I was curious if anyone could recall an honest politician to come out of the state of Illinois." - Maugansville

"I am 60 years old, worked for the State of Maryland since 1987. Just had my insurance completely canceled through the State of Maryland. I equate that to the two Os: O'Malley and Obama. My children and my grandchildren will never see Social Security, thanks to Obama, with our trillion-dollar deficit. O'Malley does not have the capacity or the mental stability to govern. So thank you, the two Os." - Hagerstown

"Well, we certainly can't tell Chris Shank not to run against Don Munson. That is his right if he wants to run. But I, for one, will be voting for Don Munson and I probably will never vote for Chris Shank again for anything, so have a good day." - Hagerstown

"To all you conservative Christians out there who think that Bush and his cronies were all right and legal with torturing people, ask yourself one question. Who would Jesus torture?" - Hagerstown

"I saw those people with the sandwiches. The people used tongs. They did not use their hands, and the ones that were serving the food did not handle any money, so those people had nothing to worry about, either. So anyhow, let the carnivals alone. It's the last of a dying breed." - Boonsboro

"Calling about the thing somebody put in Mail Call about the West End running the streets all the time and throwing trash in the street. Well, I'm here to tell you, I live in the West End and my kids don't run the street. But it's not just the West End where you see kids running the street. It's North, South and East End, too. So check those sections out. Just don't pick on the West Enders." - Hagerstown

"I just wanted to say that abortion is a terrible thing and that when you are killing millions and millions of babies, that when they grow up, they could possibly be the people who discover cures for things such as cancer and Alzheimer's, and abortion is wrong." - Hagerstown
