"Next week is Veterans Day. The past two days, my children have had off for association day. There's professional days, association days, half-days, teacher workshop days. I think it sends a bad message to the young people today that we do not have a holiday to honor the veterans in this country."

- Hagerstown




"I'm nearly 90, and my car stalled in the Kmart parking lot just now, a half-hour ago. A wonderful couple came to my rescue, and I am so grateful. I wish I'd had the presence of mind to ask their names. He knew all the tricks to get my car started again from its stall."

"Well, Martinsburg caller who demanded we TEA Partiers tell our Republican congressional representatives and senators to give up Social Security because it's socialist, apparently you're completely unaware of the fact that Congress - surprise, surprise - long ago exempted itself from Social Security, and has its own extremely, extremely generous pension system, courtesy of us taxpayers."

"This is on the United States of America. This is to all the taxpayers in the U.S. If you voters don't get out and get rid of these environmental people, these 'Go green' people and everything in the U.S., in the next 10 years, you're not gonna be able to live in the U.S. The poor person, the taxpayer, ain't gonna be able to live in the U.S. I read a book just a minute ago where ... the oil companies is getting rich because we're not drilling oil in the U.S. and everything else."

- Hagerstown




"I'm sitting here in the parking lot eating a sandwich, and I just have to laugh because this young girl spent about three minutes maneuvering into a parking space beside of me, when two cars down, there are five parking spaces wide open, and she just didn't want to walk that much further. People, thank God you can walk, and just park away, a little bit further away from the store."

- Hagerstown




"You know, it really breaks my heart when I stop to think that here, we live in a country that was founded on religious freedom, and we never stopped anybody from doing their religion, yet everybody in this country, especially the ACLU, is trying to stop us and take all our freedom and rights away. America was founded on religious freedom."

"I'd like to respond to The Herald-Mail editorial about the bingo operations. I agree with The Herald-Mail. I think that all fire and rescue companies should publicly account for every dime that is spent, just like all the other clubs in Washington County."

"Good article, A4 in The (Herald-Mail), accountability needed, bingo operations. Just not bingo operations, I mean anything ... 30 years and all these county commissioners - Republicans, independents and Democrats - had their heads buried in the sand. Before anyone gets any money, they should be able to have an audit every year and given to the county commissioners at budget time. This will make everything clean."

- Leitersburg
