Mail Call - July 14

July 13, 2011

“As a Washington County BOE teacher, I’m responding to the calls saying 17 of the county schools have received failing grades for performance. We as teachers can only do so much. We can’t make your child do the work. We send it home; you’re supposed to check up and make sure stuff’s done. Education begins at home first. Don’t blame the teachers for you not helping with the problem.”
— Hagerstown

“PETA should worry more about going to court and seeing that these dog killers and animal cruelty people get a stiff sentence instead of slap on the wrist. But then again, they wouldn’t get big headlines like they’re trying to do with Miss Maryland.”
— Hagerstown

“Here is an idea to stop the economic crisis. Have people stop hoarding those state quarters, and put them back into circulation. Think of how much more money we would have. When was the last time you saw a Pennsylvania or Maryland quarter? Think about it.”
— Waynesboro, Pa.

“In response to the Frederick caller about the Bush tax cuts and why the Democrats agreed to extend those cuts for the rich, the Republicans wanted to hold up — to do away with the tax cuts for the middle class. The only way they would continue those was if the Democrats gave in on the tax cuts for the rich. And that is why.”
— Waynesboro, Pa.

“What a pleasure and a blessing it was last night to sit outside on the lawn at the bandshell in Hagerstown and hear Guilford Station. It’s too bad more people don’t go to this event on Wednesdays, sponsored by local Christians. It’s the best thing in town on Wednesday night in the summers.”
— Hagerstown

“I think we ought to put audio — video and audio in the central BOE office, just to see how some of our supervisors are earning their money.”
— Sharpsburg

“This is just a reminder to everyone to please make sure that your house numbers are clearly visible from the street, especially in the dark. This will save a lot of time if an emergency crew needs to get to your home. So please make sure you have numbers that glow in the dark, that are visible in the dark, to save time, and maybe save your life.”
— Hagerstown
