December 19, 2011

“My comment is this. To everyone who helped find Lucy, our lost beagle: Lucy was found safe and sound today. Thanks to everyone for the never-ending support, encouragement, and most of all, prayers. We took Lucy to the vet this afternoon immediately after we found her, and she (received) a clean bill of health — our perfect little Christmas present. Thanks a lot.”

— Hagerstown



“In regard to the spaghetti tacos: I lived in Honduras for nearly 20 years, and it was very common to have spaghetti tacos over the holidays, along with eggplant pancakes.”

— Hagerstown



“For years the Republicans have said that tax cuts do not need to be paid for, but now when it comes to the extension of the payroll tax, which benefits mainly the middle class, it has to be paid for. This should really show us where their priorities lie.”

— Waynesboro, Pa.



“For the people and others calling for Allan Powell and all of us to stop bashing Bush and Cheney because they are no longer in office, they should be blaming President Obama because he’s trying to appease his union buddies, well, at least Obama, and especially unions try to stand up and do what’s best for the poor and middle-class people. Both Bush and Cheney were for the richer, with his tax breaks for the big corporations and those.”

— Hagerstown



“Someone from Funkstown wrote in what was a spaghetti taco. Well, I work for the school board and I do the lunches, and it’s a taco shell with spaghetti stuffed in it, and the kids eat it like that. It came off of ‘iCarly’ on ‘Nickelodeon.’”

— Hagerstown’s West End



“Used eyeglasses can be dropped off at most funeral homes or to Lions Club.”

— Williamsport



“It’s Wednesday, Dec. 7, and I just wanted to give props to The Herald-Mail for running the articles on Pearl Harbor. So many young people today don’t even realize this date in history. Not even sure the schools are even teaching what Pearl Harbor was, and what a devastating day it was for the people who lived in that time. So thank you very much for running the articles, and I especially liked the one about the veteran taking his and getting his ashes spread with his ship out in Pearl Harbor. I think that was really great. Thank you for doing such a great job.”

— Hagerstown



“I’m reading Wednesday morning’s paper. This is on EDC wants to hire a consultant. These people for the EDC, if they’re getting paid by the taxpayers or anything, that’s what they get paid for. And Mr. Baker, you’re the president of the Washington County Commissioners. You shouldn’t donate anything. If they want to pay ... let them pay for it. And that’s to you, Mr. Barr, too, and the rest of you county commissioners. You don’t have any business taking taxpayers’ money and paying a consultant, giving these people money for consulting.”

— Hagerstown



“Hey, if you don’t like the land regulations in Morgan County, don’t worry. Some of the members of the planning commission are always willing to give you a waiver.”

— Berkeley Springs, W.Va.



“I would like to offer my opinion on building a very expensive senior citizens (center) at the college, Robinwood, and now a hospital. There are so many empty buildings in Washington County — use them. Why not divide this great amount of money and have smaller centers in more communities in the county? Many senior citizens do not drive or have transportation. Small buses may be in order, or volunteers to pick seniors up and return them home.”

— Hancock
