Mail Call - Jan. 13

January 13, 2012

“I’m just calling in regards to the article of last week in regards to Rose Hill’s candlelight walk. I just wanted to add to it that it truly is a moving and a rewarding experience. Most people that come out, come out because they love one another, and they love their family, and they just want to be remembered. So I’m glad Rose Hill does it, and I hope and pray that they continue to do that.”

— Hagerstown



“This is to the person who found a pair of glasses Friday morning, Dec. 30, at the transfer point, on one of the benches. Those are prescription glasses, and they’re mine. If you would kindly take them up to the County Commuter office, I will pick them up there.”

— Hagerstown



“I’m calling in regards to all the home invasions for people who are owed money. Thank goodness I don’t invade people’s homes that owe me money, because I’d be a career criminal.”

— College Road



“I don’t get it. I live on Social Security, but I don’t get food stamps. How does that work?”

— Hagerstown



“I agree with the Paramount writer who said that maybe we need to get rid of the horoscope in the newspapers, due to a waste of the space there. I’d go one step further and say let’s just get rid of the Mail Call section, too. That’s a real waste of space.”

— Smithsburg



“My comment is I am so sad about your decision to take ‘Mary Worth’ and ‘Rex Morgan’ out of your newspaper. I read the paper early in the morning, and look forward to reading those first. Please rethink your decision. I’ve talked to others who agree with me. I really dislike having to buy another paper just to read those, too.”

— Hagerstown



“I just read in The Herald-Mail this morning that a Paramount resident wrote in that the daily horoscope is a big waste of space. I agree, and I also agree that Milestones is another waste of space, especially when my name, address and age is printed without my permission. It is an invasion of my privacy, and I highly resent it.”

— Hancock



“To the person complaining about the horoscopes being in the paper: They took most of the funnies out. If they take much more out, there won’t be anything left in the paper but ads and etc. I pay for a newspaper, not ads or Mail Call, etc. Of course, money is the name of the game, and your paper gets money for the ads.”

— Hagerstown



“I just wanted to say that I think the paper was getting kind of pitiful before, but it’s really a sorry excuse for the paper, now that you’ve taken all the funnies out. There’s nothing to read anymore. You don’t have any news at all.”

— Berkeley Springs, W.Va.



“Just very curious, how many nurse practitioners do we have in this town of Hagerstown? It seems as though you can’t see your physician. I haven’t seen mine for over a year. You’re always referred to a nurse practitioner, no matter where you go — even urgent care.”

— Hagerstown



“I’m referring to the person who wrote in here about common courtesy on the interstate highways, about everybody moving left to let somebody on the exit. Well, maybe you need to figure out what those signs say. It says ‘yield,’ so in other words, that means yield to oncoming traffic. We’re not supposed to yield to you, but you to oncoming traffic. Anyway, just saying.”

— Hagerstown
