Mail Call

September 07, 2009

"This is regarding the 'Changes to 'vicious' animal rules considered' in today's paper, Wednesday, Sept. 2. I agree with Kristin Aleshire that this needs to be changed; however, it states in the paper that once they have reached this particular category and have - then they would be euthanized or sent out of the county. Where are they being sent to? To an animal lab? I want an answer to that."

- Clear Spring




"I just read the first two paragraphs of Limbaugh's editorial in today's paper, and it is full of blatant lies. This isn't journalism, guys. It's a right-wing blog that you all are printing, and if that's what passes for journalism in this paper, it's time to stop the presses - now."

- Keedysville




"I was just wondering, does anybody ever re-evaluate these people that everybody's so-calling freeloaders, or once they get on this free list, do they just stay there forever? Do they ever check their savings and checking accounts to see if it's under their children's names? If they don't do this, somebody's not doing their job. I think if they would re-evaluate some of these people, some of this free stuff."

"The County Commissioners need to stop giving money to Little League teams and start enforcing laws that are on the books for Washington County. I hope all the voters acknowledge that these County Commissioners are working in their own interests, for their own employees of the companies they own, etc., and not enforcing code rules. When election time comes, we need to see some new faces, somebody willing to work for the people."

- Hagerstown




"Regarding dining out, please tip your waiters and waitresses accordingly. I am a waitress making under $4 an hour. The restaurant I work in offers coupons, coming through the mail and online. When tipping, add 15 to 20 percent on the beginning total and not after the coupon has been applied. Servers work hard in hopes of getting tips. If you can't afford to tip when you eat out, please stay home."

- Hagerstown




"Ed Forrest's personal problems aside, my concern is that he misses meetings. I watched the Board of Education on public access TV and I didn't see him at all at the last August meeting, and he left halfway through this Tuesday's meeting, just after voting on the policy changes. I watch the meetings pretty regularly and I can remember that he was absent several other times."

- Boonsboro




"It was sad to read the article about the condition of the Funkstown Cemetery. The late George Rosenberg spent an entire summer working to clean up and improve the appearance of the cemetery. All that hard work, and now it is in such bad shape again."

- Hagerstown




"Do yourself a favor - next August, turn off the cable news networks and read the paper to see what's happening. Then watch the girls' and then the boys' Little League World Series games. You will be a much happier person. Kids are great."

- Greencastle, Pa.




"What I would like to know is, with this new health care save-all program, if it is so great, why doesn't our president, Senate and congressmen, both Democrat and Republican, jump on and drop the health care they have now and sign themselves up first to show us peasants how great it is?"

- Halfway




"In case you have forgotten, the California wildfires happen about twice a year and give us something different to watch on TV. For the life of me, I can't understand why anyone would build a nice home in the middle of a brush pile, which is going to burn every so often. Then, if they are lucky and it doesn't burn, the mudslides, which also happen every year, won't wash their home down the hillside. Makes the Tri-State area look like home to me."

- Waynesboro, Pa.




"I was a bartender for many years before retiring, and when I saw a customer starting to get drunk, I immediately cut him or her off and replaced the drink with a cup of coffee, and that was the end of that."

- Clear Spring




"I have a major medical procedure coming up, and I just pray that I can get it done before the politicians get their greasy little pork-filled hands on the medical insurance. And I'd still like to know, if it's so great for us, why aren't they giving up their insurance and getting on it?"

- Williamsport




"Here we go again, Little League news in the paper again. It's all you see in the paper anymore, about Little Leagues, and this $5,000 grant for them. If the parents don't have the money, they shouldn't go. It shouldn't be up to us taxpayers to pay for it. They're making too much out of this Little League business."

- Hagerstown




"I am thrilled with the improvements at the Keedysville park. It's beautiful, but what happened to old Keedysville Road? The paving is only half there, and the rest of it is a patch job. Couldn't we have made this as nice as all the effort they put into the park?"

- Keedysville
