Mail Call - July 3

July 03, 2012

“I’m going to solve this problem once and for all. Here’s what you do: You build a ballpark at HCC. You shift the old folks out there four times a week, and let them play baseball. Charge admission. Two birds, one stone. You’re welcome, Hagerstown.”

— Smithsburg


“I am being tormented to death by that credit card company that says they can lower your interest. I don’t even have a credit card, and they keep calling me. They have called me every day this week, and they just woke me up from a nap, and I’m sick. And I have turned them in to the Do Not Call list a dozen times, and they don’t do anything about it, and these people just keep calling and calling.”

— Hagerstown


“Friday, June 22, The Herald-Mail, I noticed that President Obama has invoked his executive privileges not to disclose any documents concerning the botched guntracking operation. Now, if he’s supposed to have so much transparency in his term for presidency, I think we need to find out what’s going on, and I just think that that would be a good idea to find out.”

“I’d like to thank Hagerstown Community College and the alumni association for putting on the wonderful ‘Red, White and Blue’ concert series that’s been taking place in the HCC alumni amphitheater. I understand there’s 12 concerts happening this year, and I’ve been to a couple so far, and they’re fabulous. They’re just a great group, and it’s a wonderful thing for Washington County.”

— Hagerstown


“I have a question I just want to know if anyone out there can answer. Who actually benefits from the recyclables, as plastics and newspapers and cardboard?”

— Hagerstown


“This is in reference to the Civil War Railroad Trail. That kind of money spent for leisure is crazy. We have a thing called the Chesapeake and Ohio towpath. It runs from Cumberland to Georgetown. Perfect bike path. Why spend the money when we have this in our own backyard?”

— Samples Manor


“If you think there’s something free, you be the one to give it.”

— Hagerstown


“In today’s article by Tim Rowland, he has certainly hit the nail on the head concerning the permits department of the Washington County government. The county commissioners need to get on the stick and take care of this problem.”

— Maugansville


“I wish the lawmakers of Maryland would change the law when it comes to workers’ comp. Six to eight weeks to get a check is ridiculous. Maryland has got to be the worst when it comes to workers’ comp. Actually, we’re not too good about anything anymore in this state.”

— Hagerstown


“Keep Hagerstown beautiful. Set a big blue trash can out in front of your house.”

— Hagerstown


“Do you like a nice, cold drink when that summer turns really hot? Well, so does your pet. Throw some ice cubes in your pet’s water and they’ll love you even more.”

— Clear Spring


“I still believe that animals should be called humans, and humans should be called animals. Have you ever noticed how animals will care for their young, and protect them and do anything to make sure they’re safe? Wonder why people aren’t a little more like that. They’ll have kids and they’ll just turn them loose, and then they end up in prison or wherever. So maybe we’ve got things at a reverse order.”

— Sharpsburg

This is in response to a Mail Call about health care for kids in schools. This is to a person in Hagerstown. You got in here that, about the kids in schools getting health care. When I went to school, I didn’t have health care in school. Sometimes a dentist would show up in school. We made it through school. You said you’re willing to pay a little more taxes to help these kids. Well, you can pay more taxes because I don’t think I want to pay any more taxes than what I’m paying now.”

— Hagerstown


“This is Grandma, in reply to the Washington County caller who replied to my Mail Call. It is not routine for a child to require insulin four times a day. My tax dollars pay for this service, to provide health care to a child while attending school. You disagree, let it be your child with a lifelong illness.”

— Smithsburg


“I thought we had three branches of government. The executive branch appears to be grabbing all the power. President Obama has used executive privilege to prevent release of ‘Fast and Furious’ documents, will not enforce Supreme Court illegal alien rule in Arizona, and who knows what will happen if the health care bill is altered by Supreme Court? This is scary.”

— Hagerstown
