Mail Call - Nov. 8

November 07, 2012

“I just want to make a couple comments in reference to driving and stuff in this cold weather and rainy, snowy, whatever might happen. When you’re driving down the road on the Interstate, coming to stop signs, stop lights. Don’t tailgate someone. It’s not good for you or the guy in front of you. On Dual Highway they are always bumper to bumper, give the guy in front of you a ‘brake.’ Don’t follow so close.”
— Hancock

“Why do we need a dog park? When everybody already lets their dogs loose at the Fairgrounds Park and at Pangborn Park. Maybe they’re just not enforcing the rules at those parks. But there are dogs running all over the place, even at Funkstown Park. Dogs running loose all over the place. So I guess there’s a lot of dog parks.”
— Hagerstown

“I was in Frederick on Nov. 2 and the gas prices are about 15 cents lower than they are here in Washington County. Can anyone tell me why this is the deal? I don’t understand.”
— Hagerstown

“I have a question for all those people out there who say they don’t want to see the Suns leave but that they need to upgrade Municipal Stadium instead of building a new one. Where do they think the Suns will play baseball during the upgrade? It is going to take at least a year or more. If they are forced to leave here we will never get another team here because of the 50-mile limit.”
— Hagerstown

“Could the newspaper or someone put it in the paper a list of all the countries who have come to our aid with the recent storm/hurricane Sandy.”
— Hagerstown

“On Saturday, Nov. 3, I had to take my wife to (the) hospital emergency room for difficulty breathing. Everyone we came in contact with was very professional, courteous and efficient. I dropped her off at the door and by the time I parked my car she had already been taken back for treatment and then admitted. Its very helpful when the staff is so efficient. I know I’m proud of you.”
 — Washington County

“I think something should be done about these landlords who lie to their tenants to get them out of their house or apartments. My neighbors, a very nice couple had two small dogs and they were told they had to leave because of the two dogs. He said he was changing the rules. The next people that moved in had dogs and a cat that they didn’t take care of and when they left they left the place a hog pen. I think someone should check up on these landlords.”
— Hagerstown

“This stadium deal doesn’t pass a good smell test. All we hear is promises, promises, promises. Let’s face it we got a white elephant downtown with many other projects. It’s time for the residents to stand up.”
— Hagerstown

“Why does the senior citizens center have to be based in Hagerstown. I thought it was the Washington County senior center. I think it would be best if each town had their own and the seniors didn’t have to drive from Clear Spring, Smithsburg, Boonsboro to go to a senior center. That’s just my personal opinion, and I’m a senior citizen.”
 — Washington County

“I would like to thank this paper for putting my name in the paper for my birthday. I don’t know who put it in, I don’t know who called it or wrote in, I don’t know who put it in there but I appreciate it very much that you put it in there. I have gotten phone calls from people that I had forgot were around. People who remembered me. I really appreciate it that you put it in there. Thank you.”
— Falling Waters, W.Va.

“Monday’s paper, Nov. 5, there are way too many dogs and cats being found. People need to take their animals to the SPCA and not just let them out in the cold to die. Its not very humane. You were smart enough to get them so do something for them so they don’t die in the cold air.”
— Hancock

“My husband and I were eating dinner Sunday evening ... and we noticed they had a sign up that veterans could have a free lunch on Tuesday, Election Day. I think that’s fantastic and and it’s great and very, very nice of the managers. ... And I would just like to say thanks and I think its great and more people and all that participate for the veterans. Sincerely, the Carters.”
— Hagerstown

“I so enjoy Lloyd Waters’ column in the Sunday paper. It’s so gentle and reminds of me of a different time and place. It at leasts gets a smile if not a laugh. We’re all in the same thing, he’s a little bit cynical sometimes. But I love him when he talks about the animals. However, Mr. Callaham comes across as ... pushy. ... I think maybe the stadium should be built in his front yard that would be my idea.”
— Hagerstown

“It is another morning in America. Most of us have voted, did our civic duty and the elections are over. For better or worse, the decisions are made. Will our votes make a difference in the coming four years? I pray they will but have my doubts. Can they ‘fix’ everything to please everyone? No. Regardless who is our next president, are you willing to accept the austerity needed to correct the wrongs of decades of wild spending and poor decisions? Probably not. It will be up to the remnants of society as spoken to the prophet Isaiah by God, not masses, to correct the excesses of the past.”
— Waynesboro, Pa.

“I read in the paper the other day where they was releasing a gentleman from prison because his sentence was being reduced by half because he ‘found God.’ How many prisoners have we heard found God and when they get out they commit the same crime and go back again. This is just great for the judicial system. They’ll all be finding God so they can get their sentence reduced. I think it’s about time Maryland cleans up their judicial system.”
— Hagerstown
