Mail Call - Sept. 14

September 14, 2011

“I’m calling in reference to the traffic on Longmeadow Road in the North End. Recently they just started a construction project up at the end, near Marsh Pike. Traffic on Longmeadow Road travels anywhere from 50 to 80 mph, 24/7. Unless we get some law enforcement, either from the county and the state combined ... this traffic the way it is, we’re going to wind up having some serious injuries or death in the near future. I would certainly like to see the law enforcement in this area do something about this situation.”

— Washington County



“Please put this in your paper. South Hagerstown crushes Berkeley Springs. Why doesn’t South Hagerstown play Jefferson High School, Washington, Martinsburg, or Musselman, instead of playing little old Berkeley Springs? Then they won’t be able to crush anybody.”

— Charles Town, W.Va.



“I see where President Obama finally made a good decision on the environment. He’s telling EPA to back off a little bit on the small stuff and everything else, which I agree he should have done. And ... he should get on Congress and Senate to pass this, to drill oil and run the gasoline down through the U.S. That’d be a good thing for the people to work. It might help drop gas (prices), if the politicians aren’t crooked enough to keep the gas up.”

— Hagerstown



“Remember, when passing through Leitersburg, please be aware of our very busy roads, along with the normal traffic pattern of our cats, dogs, horses, cows, foxes, groundhogs, and yes, chickens, along with our blind, deaf, elderly, handicapped, and small children, on bicycles, skateboards and tractors. So please slow down.”

— Leitersburg



“On I-70, there are signs to tune into radio 1630 am, if lights are flashing, for a traffic update. The sound is so garbled and so much static you cannot make out what is being said. What good is it if the reception is so poor?”

 — Colonial Park



“Make sure all your car, shed and house doors are always locked. There is a group of individuals operating in the early hours of the morning that feel they can go in any unopened door and steal whatever they want. If you wake up to noise, especially between 2 and 5 a.m., look outside. You may find them working the night shift in your neighborhood.”

— South Hagerstown



“I saw this wind power thing at the school and the solar thing at the prison, and now they want to force us to recycle. This is the enviro-nazis at the EPA out of control, just like Rick Perry and the tea party folks say. We’ll stop this socialist green stuff in 2012 at the elections.”

— Hagerstown

       

“Hagerstown, Bush had a Republican Congress six years. Yes, Clinton raised taxes. Republicans took Congress over, ’95-2000. Reluctantly, Clinton was pressured by Republicans to end the gas tax, Medicare tax (and) corporate tax he had in mind. Clinton (unlike President Obama and his Demo Senate) worked with Republicans on a budget, and ended dysfunctional welfare programs, putting 5 million back to work. Unnecessary programs were eliminated, and Gingrich and Kasich were instrumental in helping (the) economy Clinton boasts about.”

— Hagerstown



“George W. Bush and the Republican-controlled Congress created this whole mess. They spent more than $30 trillion and sent over 10 million jobs overseas, $2.4 trillion from Social Security fund, $23 trillion line of credit to banks, at 0 percent, added over $6 trillion to national debt and gave $1 trillion tax breaks to the top 2 percent. Check the facts, Washington County residents. Don’t believe me, do a little work and find the truth.”

— Hagerstown



“I’ve been in the union 55 years, and I’m afraid of this union leader we have now in this country, for UAW. They’re changing everything. They want to take over the government, control it. One man gets all the money and decides on who to give it to for the election, and that’s why they’re in with President Obama. They think that ... so he wants to go worldwide with the union, be a one-world union, and I think you better put a stop to it somehow.”

— Hagerstown



“We always donate to The Salvation Army, because the money goes to a good cause and they use it to help needy people. However, we have second thoughts, now that they’re going to build a palace out there near Franklin Street.”

— Brightwood Acres East



“It is 2:56 Saturday afternoon, and Penn State is leading Indiana State, 41 to nothing. ... Please stop bragging up the Nittany Lions. They are only playing marshmallows.”

— Hagerstown
