Mail Call - June 28

June 28, 2012

“If the paper has to check the facts about the story they print, they should do the same for Mail Call. Stories about the county commissioners cutting funds from the nursing program just doesn’t seem factual. The BOE and health department should be budgeting that into the budgets each year, since it’s state mandated. I think if the county paid for it, then the BOE and health department should have a surplus, instead of spending that extra money. So where is the money, health department leaders? Thank you to the county commissioners for doing a great job. The governor said he was going to do this two years ago. People need to start listening. Wake up, folks.”

“I agree 100 percent with the letter to the editor from Chante Kline, in regards to the pit bull dogs. I think any dog can be mean, if people are the ones who are responsible for treating a dog, or any animal, so mean. What has happened to people, that all they do is abuse these animals and neglect them? Come on, I really do think our courts should become more strict with people who abuse these animals and neglect them, and I hope that they realize this, and wake up.”

“Well, well, well, I see our beloved Gov. O’Malley is coming to Antietam to showcase ... his political aspirations. Governor, you may have fooled the majority of the people in this state. You aren’t going to fool all the people in this country, of your left-wing logic. You’re nothing but a chip off the Obama, and you don’t have the qualifications to be a good dog catcher.”

“It’s Thursday morning, and I’m reading Mail Call, the 21st of June, and I’m really embarrassed that there’s so many Scrooges out there who would deny these children health care at the school when they need it. They have kids that need shots four times a day, or have whooping cough, asthma, whatever they have, and they’re so greedy that they’d build a stadium downtown ahead of these ... the only thing I can figure, they don’t have children or — and they definitely don’t have children that far in need. So God bless them. I hope they have a happy day.”

“I just read Tom Firey’s article, and I find it again a bit amazing that he wants to blame the consumers, the investors, and the government for the financial collapse with mortgages, but definitely not the banks, who packaged and sliced and diced all the various types of mortgages and sold them as rather risky investments. Just a conservative, typical conservative view, unfortunately. We’ll never get out of this if we don’t start to work together.”

— Washington County



“I ride the County Commuter, and often in the afternoon, the drivers seem to like to talk on their CBs. They’re talking about carnivals, ice cream, etc. I don’t think this is very safe. They’re taking their hands off the wheel, on the CB, to talk about things that aren’t business-related. Sometimes I don’t feel safe. I wish that somebody would say something to them, that the CB is for business use only.”

“This is in regards to the call from the Clear Spring caller, about cutting the nurse program in schools, saying that it is — that the parents are having kids and not taking care of them, and that the taxpayers are raising them. How are the taxpayers raising the children, when the nurses are administering medicines, or caring for the children that are sick in school? Children are born with diseases, health issues that they cannot prevent, that parents cannot prevent. It is about the safety of children. How would you feel if you had a child born with diabetes, asthma, or a heart problem, and needed medication on a daily basis?”

— Washington County



“The mayor and council are risking defeat in next November’s election if they blindly continue on the path of insisting on a stadium on an impractical site in downtown Hagerstown that citizens do not favor, and many are adamantly opposed to. Most are not opposed to a new or revamped stadium, just the proposed site. Note that Winchester is proposing a stadium next to the interstate and a nearby shopping center, not in their downtown, and asking the baseball business enterprise to fund it. Guess they have smarter officials than Hagerstown.”

— Hagerstown



“And I think the caller who said everyone needs to calm down about the school nursing debacle doesn’t have a child in the local school system who is cared about. Currently the nurses/techs know their individual students, know the expected behaviors and problems of their school’s age range, know what meds are appropriate or not, and care about their patients. Picking up the cheapest model and the cheapest personnel to fulfill a state mandate is not, I repeat not, the same thing.”
