Mail Call - Dec. 14

December 14, 2010

"To the person in Big Pool who called in about the little dog being tied up outside: I hope that you did call the SPCA yourself. And to all you drivers that have these open-bed trucks: please, please do not let your dog ride in those open beds." — Boonsboro

"At the intersection of Robinwood Drive and Mount Aetna Road, there are four lanes going south; one left, one right, and two straight. Yet there are two signs over two lanes telling us to go right only. Why? This has to be an error. It is very confusing to us drivers who use that road daily. Please fix it." — Hagerstown

"This is to all of you people out there in the City of Hagerstown and Washington County. The recycle (green) boxes over on the old Giant Eagle parking lot ... is just that — they are for recyclable materials. It is about time that someone go out there and start fining these people who are dumping all of their unwanted household items. Those green boxes are for newspaper, bottles, plastic items and some cardboard materials. ... Perhaps the best way to solve this mess is to simply remove those green boxes." — Hagerstown

"Has anyone that is registered with the Maryland Workforce Exchange website received any e-mails concerning a job? The requirements are to sign for a Yahoo account and then sign on to Yahoo Messenger, add a person's name, and then log in on a certain day for five hours and complete an online interview? I'm just wondering if this is real or a scam. If anyone else has experienced this, please make a comment." — Hagerstown

"What I have learned from Mail Call over the last three weeks: Dems hate Sarah Palin and her daughter, they despise Rush, Beck and Fox News. They abhor the Tea Party, rich people (except the millionaires in the Democratic fold) and all conservatives. Then they call the Republicans the party of hate. Ironic, isn't it? I get some of my best laughs from Mail Call." — Warfordsburg, Pa.

"To Monday's Blue Ridge Summit: I think you should have said 'I was just wondering when the Democrats and Republicans were going to learn to tell the truth and nothing but the truth, instead of all these lies.'" — Waynesboro, Pa.

"If I was going to vote tomorrow, I would have read up on all who's running and be ready to vote. No phone call the night before will change my mind." — Lappans

"Gas prices are over $3 a gallon in West Virginia. Am I the only one who's worried about the gas prices increasing? Isn't the economy already bad off enough?" — Funkstown

"I'm calling about the morning commute. Morning commuters, there are speed limits on area roads, especially on Dual Highway and interstates 70 and 81. Remember, it's not about you. It's about others. Slow down and share the road." — Berkeley Springs, W.Va.

"Just need to say that the new food critic, if you can call her that, she literally needs to take things with a grain of salt, and maybe she needs to order some of Pap Ricka's dishes. She seems to always be unhappy with what she orders. I've been through many of the same places with my wife, and we've always found outstanding food and service. I'm not sure what it takes to be a food critic, but we eat out quite often, and we can tell you the restaurants to eat at and the restaurants not to eat at." — Hagerstown

"I haven't seen or heard anything about bus service to the new Washington County Hospital. With so many seniors living downtown, I hope they have 15-minute drops." — Hagerstown

"I think Sarah Palin is going to be the best president ever, and she's not a witch."
— Hagerstown
