Mail Call - Oct. 13

October 13, 2011

“This is in regard to Thunder in the Square, Friday night. I have been in and out of showing cars for a number of years. As far as Thunder in the Square goes, it was great, and (by) far the best thing that they’ve had in the square besides the Mummers Parade. Everyone there did a wonderful job ... The band and dance group were fantastic. I give a four thumbs up to Alsatia Club and all their helpers for a great night.”

— Clear Spring



“Would anybody know of a fibromyalgia support group in Hagerstown?”

— Hagerstown



“Re: Tuesday’s article, ‘Local contractors meet with state legislators,’ the first paragraph says it all, and it is mind-blowing. They are appealing for: 1. Lower taxes (let everyone else pay to run this country). 2. Lower wage requirements for state contracts (it is OK if a worker has to take an additional job to support his/her family). 3. Fewer safety regulations (if a worker is maimed or killed on the job, oh well, that’s life). 4. An end to the state program promoting use of minority-owned firms for state projects. (I have mine, the heck with you). What’s really sad is the senators and delegates were receptive to these requests and encouraged these contractors to testify in Annapolis.”

— Smithsburg



“Well, I never really had much of an opinion of Hank Williams Jr., but I did respect him, because he appeared to be a true American. Well, he proved that, because ... he made a comment about the president and Joe Biden, now he’s being censored for it. They’ve even pulled his introductory song from the beginning of ESPN’s Monday Night Football. Now, that’s really getting socialistic. The man just made an opinion, which he’s entitled to, and right away, he’s being penalized and censored for it. Hank Williams now has another fan, and that is myself.”

— Hagerstown



“This is for the person who called from Keedysville, regarding the Japanese and waterboarding in World War II. They have no knowledge whatsoever of the history of World War II. The Japanese were not executed for waterboarding. They were executed for cutting ... heads off, for bayoneting injured and sick prisoners — much like the Muslims do now. Whatever it takes to get the information to save American lives, we do it.”

— Maugansville



“I’m calling in regards to the article about the fire association funding. I don’t see where they did anything wrong, when there were no stipulations on them saving money. I feel they are just being punished for saving money, which was a good thing, and I feel that our volunteer fire association should be supported, not criticized, when they didn’t do anything wrong. And I say kudos to President Glenn Fishack for doing a volunteer position.”

— Smithsburg



“The Dodd-Frank bill, financial reform bill, in banking, makes it almost impossible for small businesses to obtain loans.”

— Waynesboro, Pa.
