Mail Call - Feb. 10

February 09, 2012

“I’m calling to comment on the county’s policy on the recycling program, which is going to begin soon, and us seniors, it’s going to cost us more money, we’re going to have to pay to recycle, and I think my solution is going to be I’m just going to put everything in the trash again. For many years, I’ve recycled and saved glass and plastic and such, and now they’re going to charging me a lot more to dispose of it. And I’m already paying a trash bill, which is not going to be anything different. And the cans, which I will cash in, the rest of it I’ll just throw in my trash in the landfill can fill up, and then the county can deal with that expense. So I think the county commissioners have been very irresponsible in this.”
— Halfway

“I’ve been a resident of this county for 69 years, and have been reading this newspaper, from two a day to one a day, and it is prejudiced, through all of the years I’ve been reading it. They show favoritism on everything from work, politics, religion, etc., etc., even through changes in their staff, which have been a lot, but I’ve read it all these years and still will, because of their polls and opinions.”
— Washington County

“I was just wondering what the downtown Boonsboro area would look like, had it not been for Miss Roberts and her investments. It’s a win/win/win situation for Washington County and the Boonsboro people. Jobs, tax base, increased visitors. Keep up the good work, Miss Roberts.”
— Smithsburg

“I’d like the police, whether it’s state, city, sheriff’s department or whatever, to give a valid, good reason why they have to do these 120 mph police chases. Back in March, a mother with nine kids were killed. Now we have another man dead because the police were running after him, 120 mph. Surely there’s a better way of getting these people than doing these high-speed chases.”
— Hancock

“The fact that they’re running those speed cameras in the school district until 8:00 shows that they’re not really interested in the children. All they’re interested in is the money. And I applaud the mayor and the one councilman who refused to sign the paper, because of the time limit. Also, if they’re going to have these speed cameras, I predict that in another ... and in that case, I think they should be able to do away with one police officer for each camera, since the speed cameras will take their place. We don’t need more police.”
— Hagerstown

“I am glad that election time is approaching. I feel with the economy like it is and the empty building syndrome in Hagerstown, now is not the time to consider a new stadium. If that occurs on Memorial Boulevard, we will have the other stadium for the city to maintain, the recycling plant, and the old city light plant. I plan to not vote for anyone approving a new stadium.”
— Hagerstown
