Mail Call - Feb. 21

February 21, 2011

“If you do not know the Bible, you do not know God. There is but one, and He resides in the hearts of those that believe by accepting Jesus as Lord and Savior and become born again. ‘Making Numbers Count,’ by Adrian Rogers, proves there is order to everything. ‘The Trinity is All Around You,’ by Dr. D. James Kennedy, proves all matter is Triune, again, proving order and indicating the fingerprints of God is everywhere. Thus, those that live to murder the Word of the one and only God that died for the sins of the world will never find Him. Amen.”
— Martinsburg, W.Va.
“I read in The Herald-Mail that the Greencastle-Antrim school board unanimously adopted a $34.56 million budget, with a plan to raise the tax so high to cover it they had to apply to the state for a special exception to do so. ... How much does $34.56 million come to per child? Since property values have fallen by at least a third during the past several years, when can we expect our properties to be reappraised to reflect this loss? $34.56 million sends the message to the homeowners of Greencastle-Antrim that it is not necessary to be frugal ... when you are spending someone else’s money.”— Greencastle, Pa.
“I’m responding to the person who noticed a drastic change in their electric bills from Allegheny Power and others last month. The electric surcharge is like s & h (shipping and handling) on your order of merchandise. And yes, my federal tax withholdings went up approximately $40 more a month, deducted from my retirement check. I am not on SS, this is a pension. I need to work again to qualify for SS with enough quarters. Meanwhile, I cut and save those coupons in the newspapers. They come in handy.”— Hagerstown

“Would somebody tell (Chris) Shank that we don’t need anymore Reagan names after anything? He’s got his name over everything now but the moon, and we don’t need any President Reagan Day here in Maryland. We got enough for that, so — and I’d like to know how his museum, how they let them have the Air Force One airplane in his museum to begin with. I got nothing against President Reagan. I actually like him.”

“I’d like to respond to a person from Hagerstown in Mail Call. This is on the dramatic change in electric bills. I agree with you, Mr. or Mrs., and you got in here about a bunch of us need to get together and protest these outrageous fees. Well, the people in Hagerstown, the people in Washington County, the people in the U.S. altogether, and including the state of Maryland, we can do — to do what Egypt’s doing right now. They’re protesting. We need a million people down in Washington, D.C., protesting everything going on in the U.S.”

“I’m disappointed to see that yet again there is someone calling in to Mail Call complaining about the arts school. Clearly this person does not understand how important the arts is in education, and clearly they also don’t understand where the arts school money really comes from. They should look into that before calling in.”

— Maugansville

“I am so sick and tired of these so-called professional superstar singers butchering our national anthem at major events. The anthem should be performed as it was written. I don’t want to hear their version of how long they can stretch a note, or how long they can hit a high note, or how many little doo-dahs they can add to it. To me, this is desecration of our anthem, the same as our flag.”

— Williamsport

“I feel instead of changing the school lunches, they should make the children get off of their bottoms at the computers, etc. Also, to the remark about unions, they are outdated. At one time they were needed, but not now. They don’t save jobs.”

— Hagerstown

“These sportswriters that vote for the most valuable quarterback of the year, why do they vote before the season’s even over? I’m not a Green Bay fan, but look at Aaron Rodgers, the quarterback; beat Philadelphia Eagles, beat Atlanta, beat Chicago Bears, just in the playoffs, then Pittsburgh and the Super Bowl. He and the whole team did a great job. Have a great day.”

— Hagerstown“I’m calling about who called in about the electric bills being higher than last month and they haven’t been doing anything different, the people at their house. Well, they didn’t mention which electric company it was, but I’ll guarantee you it was probably Allegheny. Seems like they’re always doing something unfair out there. I’m glad I’m with the city.”— Hagerstown

“This is regarding the drastic and ridiculous increase in the City of Hagerstown’s electric bills. How do they expect seniors, retired and fixed-income people to live? Mine doubled last month, and I cut back on heat and it still increased this month. It is outrageous, and we all need to protest this. Call your thoughts in to Mail Call or call the city and express your opinion.”

— Hagerstown

“Be careful of the prices marked on the shelf at the grocery store. That’s not always the price it rings up at the checkout counter. I called a local store and told them the register didn’t ring up the lower price. She said she would have someone change the sign. Went back a couple of days ago, nothing had been changed, and upon checking my receipt this time, I found another item that I was charged more for. So beware.”
