Mail Call - March 22

March 21, 2011

“Daylight saving time is an unwelcome nuisance. No daylight is saved. It is merely shifted from the morning to the evening, where it is not needed, especially during the hot months of summer. The whole country would benefit if we would go back on standard time year-round.”
— Hagerstown

“Would someone please tell me why they didn’t make using a cellphone and driving a regular law? I have been driven off the road, had to wait at green stoplights, had cars run over the line into my lane, all because of someone on a cellphone. Someone dropped the ball when deciding how to make this a law that you have to be stopped for another violation. I hope they reconsider and make it a true violation and law against driving and using a cellphone.”
— Sharpsburg

“I know warm weather is a coming because my stink bugs have tripled in numbers and, my goodness, in size. They are huge and so very ugly this year. What’s up with that, anyone know?”
— Smithsburg

“Monday’s Mail Call, person from Hagers-town didn’t understand how a person could kill another person and only be sentenced to six years in prison. ‘Please explain the justice system to me.’ Please explain it to me. I had two loved ones killed together. The young man got seven years for killing two people. We fought four times to keep in there five years, or he’d have been out in six months. So please, someone explain the justice system to me. You can go out here and kill people and get less time than if you go rob a store.”
— Smithsburg

“I just wanted to call and say thank you to the person who reported my lost wallet to the police. You’ve lifted my spirits and restored my faith that there really are good and caring people out there. Thanks again so much.”
— Martinsburg, W.Va.

“In Mail Call this morning, they had someone wanted the Do Not Call number. The Do Not Call list number is 1-888-382-1222.”
— Williamsport

“I recently started a lawn-mowing business this year. I met and talked to many people that were very nice. But what happened to common courtesy? I repeatedly called or stopped at these businesses just to get a simple “yes” or “no” answer, and some of them could not return a 15-second phone call.”
— Hagerstown
