Mail Call

June 02, 2010

"I would like to thank ... the officers who assisted in getting my son's stolen moped back on Wednesday. The officer found the thief riding on it the same day it was stolen. Our police officers do go above and beyond in this town, so a word of advice to the thieves who steal in this town: You're not going to get away with it with our police officers. Thanks again."

- Hagerstown




"Thank God Bush isn't the president anymore, because the liberal media wouldn't have him to blame for the catastrophe in the Gulf. Now I see where Obama's finally on TV talking about the oil spill. I hope he straightens stuff out."

- Funkstown




"I don't understand why anybody would be concerned about the money Sarah and her daughter make giving speeches. I say more power to them. On the other hand, you weren't concerned when Obama spent nearly a billion dollars campaigning. This money was donated to him from corporations and financial institutions, the very ones he gave the money back in the form of bailouts. That's taxpayer money supporting Obama."

"If I saw a bear coming toward me with a sword, I'd run."

- Falling Waters, W.Va.




"I'm calling about the bear situation in the North End. Hey ... humans, the bears were here first. They'll come find something to eat, and travel on. I live in Fairfield, Pa., and I've seen a black bear twice, eating out of my birdfeeders. They're cool. They don't hurt anybody. Let them alone. There's no need to track them down."

- Fairfield, Pa.




"I work for the Maryland Department of Corrections, and I think it's rather sickening that we're not going to get raises again this year, and we're probably not going to get raises the next year afterwards. I mean, you take a job and you expect to prosper, get ahead, but the employees of the State of Maryland can't get ahead because their money's always taken from them."

- Hagerstown




"I understand British Petroleum ... gave our current president a large donation for his campaign fund."

- Hagerstown




"Any bets that if the Obama administration, which has done nothing but talk and criticize BP, had come up with his plan, or if the governor Jindal were a Democrat he'd have long since gotten the permits and help he needs for his plan to fight the oil spill on barrier islands? That they're delaying on the grounds that it might possibly cause future environmental damage - what do they think all that oil is going to do - is laughable. With this administration everything is political, and it's truly disgusting."

- Frederick, Md.




"Hallelujah, someone has finally realized we have a Bester Elementary School. Little be known, but it's been neglected for so long and we've had Barbara Ingram School for the Arts shoved down the newspaper and down our throats so much. Good job, whoever is responsible for this acknowledgment of Bester. They need it, they have needed it."

- Chambersburg, Pa.




"If something goes wrong in this country, Obama has a plan for it, and it's three simple words: Just blame Bush. And after five weeks of that oil spill, he's finally going down to see the destruction. Obama, you're really my hero."

- Halfway




"I just read Allan Powell's commentary on Friday, May 28, and after doing some research, he seems that he definitely knows what he's talking about. I thank him for doing the editorial, and it did open my eyes a little bit about the issue of state's rights and the fact that we actually had a war over state rights, what, seven generations ago, and we didn't obviously learn anything from it."

- Keedysville




"With all these here right-wing talk show hosts and right-wing people and whoever else complaining about Obama not getting the job done as far as the oil leak, why don't they ... go down there and help, help volunteer their services?"

- Hagerstown




"As a local taxpayer, I get tired of seeing people in the paper always wanting money for this and money for that. ... The Sheriff's Department doesn't need new training facilities and all out at the HCC. The Sheriff's Department needs more money allotted to the deputies that are out on the road so that they can do a better job - not that they're not doing a good job now; I have a lot of respect for them. And one thing I would like to see is money allotted so we can get a sheriff's deputy up at the landfill occasionally, to monitor the illegal loads that are being taken in there."

- Hagerstown




"Close the ... hole, Mr. President. Stop the pandering and the double talk and close the southern border. Security of our country is your No. 1 responsibility and your performance at this task is poor at best. At least direct your AG and Homeland Security people to read the Arizona bill before talking."

- Chambersburg, Pa.
