Mail Call - Nov. 5

November 04, 2012

“My child is in elementary school and I’ve already donated over $100 for fundraisers so far this year. School’s only been in a couple months. Every week, they’re asking for money. And if you don’t donate, then the children feel bad because they keep talking about it in the classroom. That, we need to get this money ... I’ve got to pay bills for crying out loud. They’re asking for too many donations.”

“The exit ramp on I-81 south at the Salem Avenue extended bridge ... there is going to be a fatal accident or fatal road rage. Drivers coming off the ramps do not look to see if vehicles are coming up beside them or behind them. Drivers want to get in the far left lane from the ramp to get to Walmart. They don’t look.”

“I want to thank the person from Frederick who took time to call into Mail Call and let me know whatever options I had about my cellphone company. The one I have, the phone company charges you so much as you go for your minutes. If you have minutes left, you lose them. So, I do appreciate that very much.”

“On Thursday evening about 10:30, there was a little pack of three poodles, white poodles, running through Spring Creek Road in Spring Valley and none of them had tags on. I don’t know if they belong to somebody, but they were all together. Hopefully, they’ll be OK.”

“To the caller from Hagerstown in the Thursday, Oct. 25, Mail Call who said they’re not a big football fan. You can sure tell they’re not because they don’t know the difference between the substitute referees and the professional referees. At least they got one part of the story right. They are not football fans. ’Cause they certainly can’t tell the difference.”

“The stadium issue drags on and it looks like another city council is going to pass the buck to the next administration. All the chips are on the table, they have the numbers, they have everything they need to take a vote. They are terrified that their vote will mean they lose their job. So be it. Sometimes you need to do the right thing, even if it’s unpopular. ... A vote for, maybe they lose their jobs, a vote against they lose the Suns. Time to stand up, stop passing the buck and do your jobs.”
— Hagerstown


“You know who’s already making out like a bandit on this stadium boondogle? The paper. How much did that ad in the back page of Monday’s paper cost? Whoever’s paying for it, that’s money in the newspaper’s pocketbook whether it sells the parking lot or not. And meanwhile folks, let’s consider who’s going to benefit from this stadium really and truly.”

“On Sunday, Oct. 21, I went over the side of the new bridge at Slackwater on my bicycle. I went down between the bridge and the rocks. My son, Wayne, said I was completely out of sight. A group of three or four people stopped. They were people with medical experience. The man in the group pulled me back up on the bridge. Then they packed and cleaned my wounds, helped us back to the car to make sure we made it. And I wanted to thank these wonderful folks. May God richly bless you.”
