Mail Call - June 7

June 06, 2012

“In today’s paper, you have a eloquent letter to the editor from Mr. R. Martin Palmer. I’d like to thank you for printing it, hopefully, in entirety. It really expresses the heart of Christ in the heart of many of us who continue to love anyone that’s in the lifestyle that may be contrary to Christ’s teachings, including our own misdeeds. God is always faithful to forgive.”

“So let me get this straight. The city of Hagerstown will spend $91,000 to make a park out of a quarter-acre lot at the corner of East Avenue and Locust Street. But Holly Place has to struggle to provide a home for 15 elderly, low-income senior citizens? That’s just crazy.”
— Hagerstown

“As a taxpayer with no children, I don’t mind paying for schools because education is one of the most important things a person can obtain. It helps to make them achieve what they can. However, I do mind greatly having to pay for a ball stadium that I would never use. Why not charge those attending the games more in ticket prices to pay for it? What about the lottery money that is supposed to be for stadiums? And the location, downtown? I think these all politicians need a sanity check.”
— Hagerstown

“I have a request to make regarding the Sharpsburg Memorial Day parade — or, as my grandchildren call it, the ‘candy parade.’ Could we please cut out, or at the very least cut back on all the candy that is thrown to children along the parade route? It seems that the candy has become the main reason some of the groups participate, and unfortunately, the focus of the parade. Nearly every group is throwing something sweet at the children lining the parade route. This parade is to honor those who have fought and died to make and keep our country safe.”
— Sharpsburg
