Mail Call - July 4

July 03, 2012

“Responding to the citizen who wrote in here about the senior center, and all that we do in it, at Girls Inc. I’m a participant there, and I won’t be a participant when they go to Robinwood, because I cannot drive at night, and I have to go out there for the hospitals, but I come from Clear Spring, and it takes me over 40 minutes to get out there, with traffic. So maybe the people who want it out there are the people who work.”
— Cearfoss

“People are calling in and blaming the state for passing on the pension costs to the county. It wasn’t the state who decided to give raises and benefits over all of these years to teachers without thinking about the long-term consequences. So it isn’t the state that caused this problem, it’s the counties, for never saying no to some of these unions.”
— Williamsport

“I think it would great if this year on July 7, when the Maryland Symphony Orchestra gives its Independence Day concert at Antietam, if a radio station could broadcast that so those sitting farther away could tune in to it. Perhaps a public radio station.”
— Rohrersville

“I was encouraged about the article in today’s paper, Tuesday, June 26, that the BOE and the health department are still in discussions about the school health program. Please, keep talking, so these wonderful health assistants and nurses can continue to take care of my child every day.”
— Hagerstown

“The mayor and the county commissioners want to build a ball stadium. Why don’t they get a biofuel farm built, like West Virginia wants to do? And they want to build a stadium, look at this big plant they have on Eastern Boulevard, been setting there for how many years? Hasn’t done a thing. Need to tear that down and build something in there. Put the stadium over there. Make some money off of that corner somehow or other. Good luck, mayor, have fun.”
— Hagerstown

“Why are school nurses needed? Back in ‘61 when I graduated, autism and childhood blood cancers hadn’t been diagnosed, parts of the heart couldn’t be replaced, etc., much less the meds to handle such problems been invented. Well, now they have, but the law also now says if a student is found with so much as one tablet on him, he’s to be turned in to the police. We can’t demand that students attend school, by law, and not also demand that health professionals be in place to handle the meds to keep them alive. Hugging may go on, but the administering of life-necessary drugs and procedures is mainly what’s going on.”
— Hagerstown

“My life would be greatly improved if the Weather Channel was actually a weather channel, and the TV Guide Channel was a TV guide channel. I have 60 other channels that I can watch a lot of garbage on.”
— Hagerstown

“I’m calling in reference to the Washington County school nurses losing their positions. I just want to share that blessed are the families who do not have sick children in schools. They’re so fortunate not to have to deal with health issues that many families do. So therefore, these families who are commenting about the law not really being important, they do not realize how many children come into the school needing daily prescriptions administered to them.”
— Harpers Ferry, W.Va.

“In Sunday’s paper, there was the article about Dr. Wilcox and in the background was the board with all the Post-its. I would like to know if one of the blue Post-its, I believe they were the critical color, would happen to have a concern about business classes being offered and continue to be offered with the new core curriculum that’s coming. And I hope that they look into continuing those classes. They are important. My other comment is, I hope also, Mrs. Brightman, that you know that the computer systems need to be operating.”
— Hagerstown

“Well, I see our great Supreme Court, ha, ha, stepped on the states’ rights of Arizona and threw out a couple of provisions on their immigration crackdown. Well, if you read in the paper, three of the major provisions that they got rid of, well, that’s just an invitation for more terrorists to enter the country. Read it through and really look at the three major provisions that were thrown out. It just opens the door much wider for anybody who wants to come in here and do harm to our nation.”
— Hagerstown

“Hagerstown resident for 14 years, on Security Road. I see where they want shopping downtown, where the shopping, lots of buildings, some empty lots have nothing to do with shopping, and they want a ball stadium downtown, too. And where, how does that bring shopping downtown? Only thing you’re having is empty buildings, but still, where is there shopping coming into play? I think you need to refocus on what downtown shopping is. This is not it.”
— Hagerstown

“Concerning the building of a stadium on the ‘proposed’ site, the historical nature of that site is very significant. That was the H.L. Mills property, you have Stickell’s Mill and you have St. John’s Lutheran Church. You have also individuals who are ill. No, Mr. mayor and council, no. There will be no stadium built there. It’s over.”
— Hagerstown

“To the person in Hagerstown who thinks President Obama is drilling for more oil than we ever have in the history of our country: That person needs to ask themselves, is he issuing more permits for wells on the continental shelf that will give little production, or is he issuing permits in areas that will be beneficial to the country, in terms of giving us more production out of those wells, allow the oil companies to drill in those areas that will be most beneficial to the country?”
— Waynesboro, Pa.

“To the brainwashed caller from Hagerstown: Do you really believe that Attorney General Holder and President Obama are withholding documents from operation Fast and Furious to protect former President Bush? I don’t think so. Fast and Furious is totally President Obama and his administration’s operation, for which they are withholding the truth of the death of a ... border agent.”
— Gapland

“God will bless Kevin Jaye, a true American hero, and his family.”
— Brightwood Acres East
