Mail Call - Feb. 28

February 27, 2013

“I would like to thank the Funkstown fireman for contributing to my granddaughter’s cause, ‘Jump Rope for Heart,’ today. His human compassion and kindness is an example that all fire and rescue companies should follow. Thank you, Funkstown Fire Co., for showing my granddaughter a wonderful act of kindness from a complete stranger, and setting an example of what communities do for one another.”
— Fairplay

“I don’t know what the person is trying to stir up, referring to how the mayor of Williamsport is dressed, but Mr. McCleaf is one of the best dressed members on the town council. What do you want him to wear, a tux? Wearing khakis and a Town of Williamsport shirt is not only appropriate, it shows his pride in our town. Way to go, Mayor. Keep up the good work.”
— Williamsport

“I cannot understand how ex-politicians can run, or get nominated by, like, different things that are supposedly, different corporations and stuff, when they were in office and they were pushing to build new stadiums and new businesses and stuff, and then they turn around after they’re retired and drawing a pension, they turn around and get hired by corporations and stuff because they helped them make money. This is ridiculous, and I feel that they should not be allowed.”
— Washington County

“After reading The Herald-Mail today, about ‘The good, the bad, the ugly of downtown Hagerstown,’ I read the article by Don Aines, and it’s interesting that Penny Nigh has been telling the council and the city this for almost 15 years, and it’s finally hit home? ... Where have you people been?”
— Washington County

“Here is to this week’s laugh-out-loud: Bob Bruchey, who was behind the stadium fiasco, is now the new GM of the Suns. Hmm, makes you want to think about that one. Also the funds were already set aside for Southern Boulevard going through Funkstown. Our county government has been dragging its feet far too long, and this should have been done by now. Where is the money that was granted and set aside?”
— Funkstown

“Thanks for the article in the paper on Feb. 19 about the EDC and the joint venture, with what we’re going to do with downtown Hagerstown. Ron Bowers is right, that’s a shadow test in the government. How could they not include the EDC? I hope Mr. Barr, Mr. Baker and these others say let Hagerstown march to their own tune.”
— Hagerstown

“Another thought about the BOE moving off Commonwealth Avenue: Has anybody ever thought about moving out to the old Fairchild plant? It’s a big enough building, and there’s certainly plenty of parking. There’s a big enough area in the back for a garage. Keep all the school buses inside, even. Just another thought.”
— Hagerstown
