Mail Call - March 4

March 03, 2011

"I would like to know how teachers right now think they can get raises, when many other people don't have jobs and can't get raises. Yes, many of them are good teachers and are entitled to raises, but I would like to go on record and say many of them are not."

— Hagerstown


"To the renter calling in about having problems about their oil tank and the landlord not doing anything about it: I think that these people who own these apartment buildings and these businesses, if they don't fix them up and keep them looking good inside and out, in a month or two or less, they should have the building taken away from them. There's too many dilapidated buildings and apartment buildings in Hagerstown already."

— Hagerstown


"Latest news: Food prices, clothing, gas, are all going up in price. My electric bill, insurance and water bills have all increased in cost each month, yet the powers to be in Washington keep telling us there is not inflation and the cost of living has not increased. They remind me of a horse that has blinders on and cannot see left or right."

— Hagerstown


"This is in reference to the caller about — the renter with the oil tank problem. You know, it really is up to the landlords to take care of their residence, and they should be responsible for the upkeep, as long as you're the one that's making the destruction. I rented for years, and our landlord gave us nothing to fix up our place. We had to use our own money to put into it, and then we ended up, we had to move because they were selling the building. So there we were out money."

— Hagerstown


"Gasoline: If oil was $91.73 a barrel in October of '08, and it's only $79.78 worth a barrel now, why's gas keep going up? Our local gas station raised our gas 11 cents overnight. I think this is a rip-off and I think something should be done. Why are they price-gouging us again? We have friends that works for a cartel, and they said the gas is supposed to be three times 39 cents and 34 cents. That would be $2.3934 a gallon. They're charging 69 cents more, and then she raised hers another 11 cents."

— Clear Spring


"Gee, I hope things don't happen in Maryland like they're happening out in Wisconsin, where you have a governor out there who has guts to do what he has to do, instead of we have a governor here in Maryland who keeps — loves spending, spending, spending."

— Hagerstown


"I don't know if this will help everyone, but I'd like to share this little thing I have found with (dish) detergent, for the stink bugs. I mix like three-quarters of a cup of (dish detergent) and put — not a lot of water, but some, and put it in a spray bottle, and I sprayed around my windows. I sprayed around the windows on the outside. So if this would be of help to anyone, you know, I'd give it a try."

— Hagerstown


"Maryland taxpayers, you better start waking up. That Ramirez fellow who is a Prince George's County Democrat — he is also a senator — he is pushing this Dream Act continually, which would sponsor legislation to allow illegal immigrants to receive in-state tuition at public colleges and universities. Now he is also pushing — and people are going along with him — that children of these illegal immigrants also be allowed to attend Maryland universities, at the same rate paid by residents."

— Hagerstown


"About 10 years ago, the city of Hagerstown, the mayor and the council spent a lot of money on research on the old power plant that sits on the corner of Eastern Boulevard and Mount Aetna Road, and it deemed that it's very unsafe, filled with asbestos, and it's an EPA hazard. It's been 10 years, and the only thing that's been done is a chain-link fence has been put around it. I'd like to know what the mayor and the council. ... I live close by to that, and I'm worried about things leaking into the water."

— Hagerstown
