Mail Call

May 26, 2010

"Could you please tell me, is there not any other area in Washington County other than Robinwood Drive? You know, you have all the businesses, all the housing, you have the Robinwood Medical Center, you have the new hospital, you have an elementary school, you have a primary school being built, they're going to build a senior center at HCC. It was in the paper the other day, beside HCC they want to buy the land and build a high school, and now they want to build a multimillion dollar ... how much traffic can one road hold?"

- Smithsburg




"This is to the Boonsboro caller responding to the Smithsburg caller asking if it was legal to hunt a bear with a sword. I'm pretty sure he's saying he killed the bear with a sword, not seeing a bear with a sword. Try re-reading what you're responding to before you respond."

"In Maryland, the interstate speed limit is generally 65 mph. If most people drive faster than that on the interstate, does that mean that we need 'comprehensive speed limit reform?'"

- Hagerstown




"Someone called and said Sarah Palin quit as governor because it got too tough for her. I think she quit because she saw some opportunity to make some big bucks. Now her daughter is going to get $30,000 a speech. I think it's a little ridiculous. I certainly hope no one like her gets to be in charge of our country, because then, heaven help us all."

- Hagerstown




"You probably won't put this in the paper, but Herald-Mail, thank you for putting all those tax collector sale real estate advertisement in the paper; 475 people owe taxes on properties, not counting the foreclosures this year, and only 30 paid - whoopee. Why don't we all hold our tax money until Dec. 31 of next year, and then let's see how this county and the city and the state will act. Thank you for putting this in the paper and keeping us updated."

- Leitersburg




"I'd like to know what is so newsworthy about a red light camera taking the wrong person. This stuff happens all the time. It's happened to me - not with a camera, but with vehicles, two separate vehicles that I've never even owned in my life, I've gotten notices to pay parking tickets on them. You know, you just make a phone call or two and then it gets straightened out. But as far as being front-page newsworthy, I would suggest our local news reporters go out here and dig into more important stories."

- Hagerstown




"So you cooperate with police and the IRS, then you get punished for it. The Halfway Fire Department should not have suspended the chief. He should have been rewarded."

- Keedysville




"Iran caught three Americans over their border. North Korea caught two Americans across their border. We can't stop hundreds every day over our border."

- Hagerstown




"Honestly, Hagerstown caller, at times you Obama supporters appear to verge on being delusional. You claim 'jobs are starting to pick up.' Where? Not in Frederick, that's for sure, where we recently lost BP Solar, and now an additional 600 jobs from the JPMorgan Chase center closing. And apparently you didn't notice that the unemployment rate just went up. You're certainly entitled to your own opinion that Obama's doing your job, but you aren't entitled to your own facts."

- Frederick, Md.




"I work at (a local fast food restaurant). I'd like to comment on the people that are coming in there with empty ... cups, and getting them refilled after they had one and then they go home and bring their cups back and get them refilled and walk out without paying for them. It's getting to be a problem, and I'd like for these people to know that if they're not paying for something they shouldn't be getting it."

- Hagerstown




"This is on Rand Paul that just got nominated, this thing that the politicians is against him about this segregation or what it is. Far as I'm concerned, the government shouldn't have no business in anything that a business person does. And I should have the right to say who can come in my business, who can't come in my business, whether they're white, Mexican, black, or whatever they are, and another thing is it's the same thing as smoking."

- Hagerstown




"I like to watch 'The History Channel' because you can learn an awful lot on there, but my question is why does 'The History Channel' all the time try to debunk what is said in the Bible? The Bible is the Bible, the book that we live by, and that all our laws are made from, and people who are Christians believe the Bible."

- Falling Waters, W.Va.




"I cannot speak for all the schools in the Washington County system, but the one that I teach at, we have a very strict no cell phone policy. We follow it to the letter. If a teacher does have a problem with taking a cell phone from a student when a student has it out, then we call for an administrator who comes and they take care of the problem at that time."

- Hagerstown
