Mail Call - Oct. 26

October 25, 2012

“I’d like to thank the three people that helped me this morning when I fell, out at the mall. Just wanted to say thank you. I broke my shoulder, but I’ll be OK. Also, the EMTs at Halfway. They were great. Thanks, guys.”
— Hagerstown


“I must admit I’m a little weary of people making fun of so-called Mormon magic underwear, as one Hagerstown caller recently did, about Mitt Romney’s secret magic Mormon underwear. Would you make fun of a pastor who dresses in his robes? No. The Mormon so-called magic underwear are temple garments, received as they make commitments ... please get the facts and respect the Mormon religion.”
— Hagerstown


“Let me get this right. We’re going to build a multimillion-dollar stadium, for a low-level, Class A ball team that averages only approximately 344 people a game, and the Suns only pay $1 a year now to the city for rent. So how are they going to pay $300,000 a year, if they get the new stadium? Seems to me that the Suns would have to raise their admission prices to cover their rent, and that means less people will be attending, because they won’t be able to afford to go. These questions need some answers.”
— Hagerstown


“Referring to the cartoon in Sunday’s paper, Thanksgiving at Mitt Romney’s house, showing Big Bird being cooked in his oven, what is President Obama cooking in his White House oven for Thanksgiving, our national symbol, the American bald eagle? That is what this incompetent president is cooking, our country, to well-done.”
— Rohrersville


“I don’t know what the combined attendance of this weekend’s, first of the season, MSO concert was, but there were seats to be had. Given the quality of the musicians, the exuberance of the director (Elizabeth Schulze) and the lovely venue (The Maryland Theatre), there should have been a packed house. If you’re like me, you wonder if the coarsening of our culture has no bottom. If so, I’d encourage everyone in general and young people in particular to take in the next Master Works series in mid-November. After listening to a million political ads and enduring the November elections, it might be nice to be entertained with something beautiful, and not stress-provoking.”
— Mercersburg, Pa.


“Fairplay fire department or any fire department, as far as I’m concerned, has the right to hire an attorney. Yes, it should get that far, no, it should not have gotten that far, if the county commissioners were doing their job. They need to meddle out. It’s all right to oversee, but to just come in a fire department and demand that everybody give their jobs up ... they need to let them select the people. Let the people of the community decide who’s who.”
— Hagerstown


“The town of Funkstown has to do something about their high water and sewer rates. They should offer some type of program to offset the costs for poor people in the town.”
— Funkstown


“Would the State Roads please inspect Route 11 between Williamsport and Halfway Boulevard, and see about repaving that?”
— Williamsport


“This is concerning the writer from Williamsport in the Oct. 16 edition, concerning Downsville Pike. I really do feel that what he refers to as the pike, from I-70 to 68, which incidentally is not called the pike, but is called Maryland Avenue, and has been recently resurfaced, so I don’t know what he’s talking about ... on down to Downsville, it is roughshod, from Downsville down to Woburn is brand-new.”
— Sharpsburg


“Election day is coming soon, and I want to point out, citizens should vote for candidates who would do the most good, not strictly along party lines. To do so, you are not making a choice. There are good candidates in both parties. Vote accordingly.”
— Hagerstown
