Mail Call

September 02, 2010

"I'm on 70 east, just leaving Hancock a while ago. I'm running 65, 68, and most people are passing me like I'm sitting still. I know they got to be doing 75, 85 mph. I hardly ever see a cop up here on these roads. Please, if you want to make some money for the state, come up here and get some tickets. You could sure get a lot of speeders if you come up on this road, boys."

- Hancock




"I'm calling in response to the article in Thursday's paper about the new library. ... I read that the employees helped get the budget for the library. Well, I would like to know, the library's having all these things for these people, donate $10,000 or more, what are they going to do to show their appreciation to their employees? I am a loyal library user, and I think the employee is the one that makes the library."

"I'm asking everyone to please, please, please vote this year, whenever you can. It is your right to do that. It's a freedom we have, and also, to research the candidates that are running. Don't vote for just anybody because a friend says vote for him. Vote for someone who has good values, and if you're a Christian person, vote for the person that protects the Bible and stands for Christianity, not someone that - it's very important that you know who you're voting for."

- Sharpsburg




"I have a campaign sign in my yard for Mr. Wivell. I am going to take it down and I'm not going to vote for Mr. Wivell, because of his stance against giving veterans a break, these disabled veterans a break, on the dump fees. I'm going to tell all my veteran friends that do not vote for Mr. Wivell."

- Hagerstown




"To the person from Williamsport who stated they will vote for Chris Shank because he sponsored legislation to deport illegals, and the only thing Don Munson did was fund CASA: Am I missing something, or should there be some type of test given as a requirement to vote?"

- Hagerstown




"Thanks to the gentleman directing school traffic at Springfield Middle School. It's been - it has become a lot easier dropping and picking up my son. You're doing a great job."

- Williamsport




"I have a comment in regards to these bedbugs. I agree, I think something needs to be done to prevent the epidemic getting worse. I hear they're in some of the hotels. So what can be done to stop bedbugs? Anyone have any ideas? Pass them on, please."

- Hagerstown




"I'd like to respond to the Hagerstown caller's comment about he's an atheist. Well, I'm proud of you, but I just happen to believe in God, that there being a God. So there you have it. But I'm happy for you, though, that you want to be considered an atheist. And also, I still haven't seen my response comment in to the Greencastle caller concerning - yeah, I'm still looking for that one."

- Greencastle, Pa.




"This is in response to Thursday's Mail Call. If they were seeding clouds, wouldn't it rain? And overseas jobs are an economic decision by corporate America, and an economic decision by Americans to buy cheap Chinese goods. Do you want manufacturing jobs here? Demand American-made goods. Nothing to do with Obama/Bush Lite. And I'm 55 and I never heard of schools telling parents not to teach (their children)."

- Hedgesville, W.Va.




"For you cat owners in the area of Key Avenue and Dakota Avenue: There are several cats running loose. They look in pretty nice shape, so evidently somebody must own these. I don't think they're actually feral cats, but I will be trapping them, in a humane manner of course, and taking them to the local Humane Society. I'm only doing this as a last resort, because the owners must be very irresponsible when it comes to their pets."

- Hagerstown




"I'm calling about the person that wrote about the post office, about cutting the carriers to two to three days a week. The mail comes into the post office seven days a week. It comes in on trucks from the incoming mail facilities. Every day it has to be delivered. ... What this person needs to do is maybe go in and work at the post office, and see what would happen with the amount of volume that comes in if you only were to work two or three days a week."

- Boonsboro




"I say hats off to the gravy train person from Cavetown."

- Hagerstown




"I did 20 years in the Navy and retired, and I was looking for a place to live, and since everybody from Mexico is moving to the U.S., the population probably dropped down to zero. I wonder if anybody knows any good Realtors down in Mexico. There must be lots of land down there, since everybody's going to be in the U.S. and we're giving our country away to that country."

- Berkeley Springs, W.Va.




"I would like to thank again the gentleman who found my medicine prescription in the parking lot at Sam's, and returned it to the pharmacy department and notified me about the loss. I thank him again."

- Hagerstown
