Mail Call - Dec. 28

December 27, 2011

“It’s a sad day when someone gets arrested for having a fake grenade in their home. All you vets who have souvenir ones, you better dispose of those. And while you’re at it, you better get rid of those cap guns and water pistols because Big Brother is following you.”
— Smithsburg

“Greencastle trophy bragger, you’re right, it is my choice to look at the pictures in the paper. It’s also my choice to purchase The Herald-Mail, which I do. And with that purchase price, I don’t wish to see beautiful dead animals splashed all over the paper. Take pictures of your trophies, display them on your walls. Hopefully you can buy the 12-by-13, so that all your family can get a really good look at what you’ve done. I’m not proud for what you’ve done. They’re not prize deer, they’re poor animals that you stalked, hunted and killed. Nobody cares. Get the pictures out of the paper.”
— Boonsboro

“I was calling to see what can be done about a house (where the occupants) will not fix anything up, it’s full of roaches and mice, they have kids living in the house, nobody has a job, and I can’t get the city, anyone to do anything about it. They have been condemned before and (they) let them right back in the house. Their roof is leaking, they got plastic on it. You know, no big deal. I can’t — nobody will fix anything up ... It’s a half a duplex, and people had to move next door to them, because there’s junk, trash everywhere, and, nobody will do anything.”
— Hagerstown

“I just wanted to say thank you very much to Bill and the staff and grounds crew at Rose Hill for a wonderful program on Friday, Dec. 9, with their candlelight walk and tree lighting. What a serene, peaceful program. Please don’t stop doing this. It made my holiday brighter, knowing that people were thinking of loved ones gone in the past.”
— Hagerstown

“There’s only a very few of the comics that I personally read. Most of them sound either stupid or not funny at all.”
— Hagerstown

“I would like to know where Mayor Bruchey and the council get the authority to hand out bonuses, when most of the people are having problems meeting their expenses and paying their bills and everything else. And they come up with this late fee on bills if you’re late getting there with your money.”
— Hagerstown

“In response to the extreme partisan Republican caller from Frederick, Md.: The bill to get employers to check e-verify is a waste of time for illegal immigrants. Already, it’s against the law to hire illegal immigrants. If you don’t have a Social Security number, you shouldn’t hire them anyway. So having them check e-verify is not going to do nothing. It’s just another bill the Republicans are trying to put out there, as if it means something, and it doesn’t ... stop taking up for the do-nothing Republican Congress, whose only job it is is to get rid of President Obama, and crash the rest of the country.”
— Hagerstown

“To the state of West Virginia: When are you going to start enforcing the speed limit in the work zone on (Interstate) 81, where they’re building a bridge at Marlowe? Please start enforcing it. It’s very dangerous when cars and trucks are going through at 70, 75 mph.”
— Hedgesville, W.Va.

“I was on unemployment for six months in my lifetime. Six months, and you can’t get your next check until you prove you’ve been looking for jobs. So this stuff about getting it 99 weeks and waiting until it runs out before you go look for a job, it’s a lie. It is a lie. So quit listening to the Republican lie and look for the truth, just one time.”
— Hagerstown

“This is for the person from the South End who bashed Funkstown for removing our recycling bin. Funkstown has had a recycling bin for 20-plus years with no problems. The city of Hagerstown removed the recycling bin from the South End Shopping Center because some people in Hagerstown were dumping all of their trash there. Then the people from Hagerstown started bringing their old furniture, yard waste and everything that couldn’t be recycled to Funkstown. Because of some people in Hagerstown, the people of Funkstown lost our recycling privileges. So please don’t bash our town.”
— Funkstown

“I just saw on TV where a poll said that 69 percent of Americans say they feel that this country could not be in any worse shape. Yet 51 percent said they would vote for President Obama again. What are you people thinking about? You can see what he’s done to this country in three years. What do you think he’s going to do with four more elected years? This country is lower than I’ve ever seen it, and it just keeps getting worse and worse. We need to get some good, Bible-believing Americans in there that want to get this country back on course.”
— Sharpsburg

“The Cleveland Browns have never changed cities, Mr. History Lesson.”
— Hagerstown

“Just because someone says something is good does not necessarily make it so. Evidence of goodness will show itself.”
— Clear Spring

“This is to the person who found my pocketbook hanging on the mobile cart at (the store) on Pennsylvania Avenue, Saturday, Dec. 17, and turned it in to the service desk at the store. You can’t imagine how important it was for me to get it back, with its contents all there. Thank you very much, and God bless you, sir.”
— Hagerstown

“In Sunday’s paper, Charles Krauthammer’s article is 100 percent correct. This President Obama’s got to go.”
— Charles Town, W.Va.

“I just wanted to wish a merry Christmas to whoever stole mine and all my neighbors’ Christmas ornaments, including the large inflatables. We hope they have a very merry Christmas.”
— Hagerstown

“If you think the unions are standing up for the poor and middle class, think again. The union leaders are only standing up for themselves, so they can take expensive vacations, line their pockets with your union dues, and casting your vote for President Obama and the rest of the union-loving folks.”
— Brightwood Acres East

“I am just calling to thank the secret Santa Claus that paid off my layaway at (the toy store), and they don’t realize how much that meant to me. It made my Christmas, and I hope God blesses your whole year. Amen.”
— Hagerstown
