Mail Call - March 28

March 27, 2013

“This call is concerning all the people that want the BOE to move to the old Potomac Edison building. That building probably needs a lot of renovations. It may even have asbestos in it. They’d have to pave the parking lot to put all the buses and ... the best solution’s still to move it downtown, and leave the buses out on Commonwealth Avenue, where there’s a maintenance garage and everything. Keep the thing downtown, so you can revitalize the economy. Frederick built theirs downtown, and if you look at the one in Frederick, it really does a good job, and it revitalizes that whole area.”
— Hagerstown

“Observe the Maryland taxpayers’ money at work, at Huyetts Crossroads. The traffic signal supports that were built and installed one year ago are being destroyed, because they were in the wrong location? Blunder, or not?”
— Clear Spring

“Thank you, thank you, thank you. Three weeks ago, I lost my 1-year-old Maltese who weighed 4 pounds, and after three weeks she was, she has been returned home to me, with no name or anything attached. But thank you for your kindness in taking such good care of my dog. I appreciate it very much. I wish more people were like you.”
— Hagerstown

“I was just wondering how people, illegal immigrants are getting driver’s licenses and collecting Social Security and stuff like that. Forty years ago when I got my driver’s license, I had to show my birth certificate and a Social Security card. Why don’t people have to do that nowadays? That would eliminate a lot of the confusion and everything. I mean, birth certificates ... 40 years ago. So I guess the laws have gotten so lax that anybody can just get a driver’s license, saying yeah, I’m Joe Brown and I live on Main Street, OK?”
— Hagerstown

“I was going to work one morning and found a nice beagle dog, looking lost, on York Road and Halfway Boulevard. When I stopped at the stop sign, the dog came over to me at the car and was shivering. I took him home and fed him and watered it, and took him to the Humane Society. I just wish that people would treat your animals as if they were children. They are God’s gifts also.”
— Halfway

“I was at (a store) this past Saturday, and I was sitting down somewhere, and this young ... woman who was so absorbed in her conversation on her cellphone, ran into me with her cart, and I was sitting, mind you, at a bench. She needs to watch what she’s doing, and if you’re that absorbed with your cellphone conversation and you’re in the grocery store, heavens, what do you do when you’re out driving a car? ... People really need to pay attention to what they’re doing when they’re on the cellphones, definitely when they’re driving, or especially when they’re out in the stores.”
— Hagerstown

“This is Tuesday morning. I’m reading the paper, Mail Call, again like it’s been for the last couple of days. They gotta get somebody on here to read these Mail Calls beside this right-winger that you got working for you. He’s biased, you can tell. Everything’s slanted toward the Republicans.”
— Hagerstown

“This is a message to all the weathermen out there. It looks like you have too much gusto built into your weather models. You predict a hurricane and we get a slight mist. There’s something definitely wrong there in the way you’re predicting the weather, because you’re always overdoing it for some reason, at least in my experience ... so that you can have some credit with your viewers and listeners, I hope you scale back your ‘the sky is falling’ attitude about every weather front that comes through.”
— Washington County

“Praise be to God for answering the prayers of many people who lifted up Aaron Miller for God’s healing touch. The front-page article on Sunday, March 17, will inspire many others to believe in God’s healing powers, which guided the doctors in Aaron’s treatment. God loves all of His people. He has special plans for each precious life. God inspires us to be all we can be, using our many talents and abilities He has given us.”
— Boonsboro

“Interesting to see about this soil test down where the field of dreams is for the new stadium, right where The Herald-Mail is, and up where the Baltimore Street car wash, in that area. People probably don’t remember, but remember that Darby had a train refurbishing station there that tore trains apart? Also, the B&O Railroad had a station there. So just see what the arsenic, the lead level and everything else comes out of this.”
— Hagerstown

“I see where these federal cuts would limit the Antietam activities this year. That’s what people evidently don’t understand. These cuts, they are tax dollars, yours and my tax dollars, and they’re depriving us, these people in charge down in Washington, D.C., they’re depriving us of what we can do with our families. Yet none of the cuts have affected the senators, the governors ... These people can still do whatever they want, at taxpayers’ expense, but they’re going to cut back on what we can do with our families this summer. ... Vote these people out.”
