Mail Call - Jan. 11

January 11, 2011

“I was wondering if there was a follow-up story of the commissioners ... the new board supposedly when they came in, were going to review the gaming money to the nonprofits, to ensure that they’re checking their books, the proper filings, federal and state, their nonprofit status and income tax, is a must before they get gaming money.”
— Chewsville
“I think the church organists in the area should play a nice, loud fanfare in observance of M.P. Moller Pipe Organ Works and Eastern Organ Works, in celebration of the companies and the King of Instruments.”
— Ringgold
“The members of Mount Vernon Reformed UCC would like to thank all of the beautiful dogs and their special owners who joined us for the Christmas Eve service, which included the blessing of pets. There were 30 four-legged family members and approximately 65 men, women and children who graced our church in Keedysville for the singing of carols and the individual pet blessings. All of the participants were well-behaved during the entire service.”
— Hagerstown
“This is to the Greencastle biker and all the other bicycle riders: Remember, my 3,000-pound car is no match for your 20-pound bike.”
— Washington County
“I have a question about the Hagerstown area, Edgewood Drive and Dual Highway. I travel that area twice a day, and I wondered when the dip at the end of Edgewood Drive coming out onto Dual Highway is going to be remedied. That’s a terrible drop when you fall into that, coming out onto Dual Highway making a left turn. It’s really a jolt.”
— Big Pool area
“I travel roughly 100 miles every day, and this is to the people who think that the police don’t do their job. I think they do a very good job. They stop a lot of people, and they definitely do their job. I’d just like to say that.”
— Hancock
“Isn’t it a lot of fun when you’re riding in a taxi and the driver’s puffing away on a cigarette, and the window down, in the middle of winter? The passengers either freeze to death or get secondhand smoke. This is horrible.”
— Hagerstown
“I just recently went out to the Dual Highway and saw the bike lanes that everyone’s talking about. I agree, that is totally ridiculous, and someone is going to be killed if they continue with that plan. To have a bike lane in the middle of two lanes is totally ridiculous. You know cars are going to change lanes and not see the bicyclists. So someone’s going to get killed. Before that happens I hope ... there shouldn’t even be bike lanes out on Dual Highway, except along the shoulder of the road.”
— Hagerstown
“Just have a couple comments to make. In reading the paper the other day where the Pennsylvania woman was killed after the tire struck her windshield, I still say people tailgate too much — not saying that she did, because I don’t think she did — but when you’re passing people and they fly like they’re crazy. The other thing is, I believe what David Limbaugh is saying in the paper when he got that part one, part two, about the Bible being true, and yes, I am a Christian.”
— Hancock
“In reference to these people calling about the police officers and the correctional officers and all them, why don’t they go get a job doing what they’re doing, and see what it’s like? They act like it’s nothing to it, that they shouldn’t get paid their benefits or anything like that. I think it’s ridiculous. They — wouldn’t be for these people, they would be in bad shape. Just have them not work for a year or so and cut the prisons loose, and see where the public ends up.”
— Sharpsburg
“It is possible to get Social Security disability without a lawyer. I know three people that have done it. I was one of them.”
— Hagerstown
“Congratulations to the E. Russell Hicks chorus for a wonderful Christmas performance. It was truly a wonderful concert, and we truly enjoyed it.”
— Hagerstown
“I’d like to see my tax dollars ... going to the city police, writing more tickets for parking, for speeding, for recklessness. The streets aren’t really that safe. The city of Hagerstown’s lucky they haven’t had more fatalities. They’ve had a couple on Franklin Street. That should be enough to wake up the mayor, wherever he is, and the city council, and say hey, let’s get our guys out there that are in uniform and start pushing paper. That means putting tickets on cars and pulling them over.”
— Hagerstown
