Mail Call - June 30

June 30, 2011

“This is in response to the individual from Falling Waters, inquiring asto how a wreck could happen at the corner of West Washington Street and West Antietam Street, when they were a block apart. West Washington Street and West Antietam join, or intersect, at Washington Square.”

— Martinsburg, W.Va.



“The railroad crossing on State Line Road, in between Route 11 and Route 63, definitely needs a bar to come down, because if you drive east at a certain time of the morning, the sun’s in your eyes, and if you drive west at a certain time in the afternoon, the sun’s in your eyes, and you can’t see the light. This morning, if the train wouldn’t have sounded its horn, I wouldn’t have been able to see that the train was coming, because I couldn’t see the light because of the sun. It’s very unsafe, and somebody’s going to get killed.”

— Maugansville



“Hey, all you mo-ped complainers, you want to see a real problem? Come up to Hancock, about 3 any morning during the week. Watch the teenage boys running the mo-peds up and down the main street. There’s hardly ever any police on duty then. But don’t get caught at 3 in the afternoon without your seat belt on, because we got police all over the place then.”

— Hancock



“I hate beating a dead dog down, but I just was reading Friday, June 24th’s paper, and seeing a demolition deluge of the Washington County Hospital. The beams in the picture look pristine, like the day they were installed. That’s a doggone shame that they have to tear down such a solid structure as that was. I hope they learn from this and do not do something like this in the future.”

— Falling Waters, W.Va.



“About the recycling: I have been recycling for three or four years now, and when I have had to go to Clear Spring or Funkstown, sometimes I’ll drop it off there, but I live alone, I’m in my 70s, and from now on, with no place to drop off recyclables, instead of one bag a week for trash, as one person will make, there will be three or four. And when it goes to the dump, I can’t afford to go there and recycle, when recycling here was free for us.”

— Hagerstown



“Get a Bible. Read Psalms chapter 14, verse 1.”

— Waynesboro, Pa.



“My house went into foreclosure, and I gave my dog to people who I thought would take care of it. They ended up taking him to the SPCA, and lied to us and told them that he had died, and I’m really, really upset about this and so are my grandchildren, and I just don’t understand how somebody could do this to somebody else’s property.”

— Hagerstown
