Mail Call - April 9

April 09, 2013

“I see where someone wants to cut out the junk mail they receive. Think about it this way, that junk mail still brings in revenue for the postal service. Take away the junk mail, take away the revenue. Take away the revenue, take away a lot more than Saturday mail delivery.”
— Funkstown

“I am happy for Sierra Nevada and their employees for getting $43 million from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (U.S. taxpayer) for sophisticated enforcement planes. As a taxpayer, it would be good to know if drone planes would be a cheaper alternative. Less maintenance, less crew, less cost per hour air time? They seem to be doing a fine job in the Middle East, and for spying on U.S. citizens.”
— Waynesboro, Pa.

“To the Hagerstown caller voicing his/her opinion about today’s churches: I agree with you 100 percent. I would also add that although there are many pastors preaching the Word from the pulpit, they are not training or mentoring the members of the church to take the message of the Word into our communities, nor do the pastors themselves do so. They do visit the sick in hospital, and might call if one is sick at home, yet they belong to numerous help organizations and neglect their own congregations.”
— Rohrersville

“The person leaving his dog mess behind needs to be told. My husband winged a mess back on their property years ago, on someone’s property down in Frederick. I called animal control, thinking my husband would get in trouble, and the man answering the phone said oh, no, it belongs to them. Wing it.”
— Hagerstown

“I’ve been kind of curious. There are several people in my neighborhood, some live close, some don’t, that have lived in Hagerstown for well over a year now, yet they’re still driving their vehicles with out-of-state license plates. Now, I know these people don’t belong to the military. They hold regular everyday jobs. But I’m wondering, if they have an out-of-state address, so that they can keep their out-of-state tags, how are they taxed? I’m just curious.”
— Hagerstown

“Great article, Leonard Pitts, about human beings answering phones. I get so aggravated and just keep asking to talk to an agent or human being. Companies would be so more efficient if they would go back to live human beings answering phones and giving customer service.”
— Hagerstown

“The election for the Washington County Commissioners next year cannot come soon enough. We desperately need a change from the current county commissioners.”
— Maugansville

“To the caller who was criticizing Republicans at the CPAC here last week: Well, if that isn’t the pot calling the kettle black, when you criticize the Republicans’ rhetoric, when the Democratic battle cry for years has been ‘We need more revenue,’ and ‘Tax and spend.’ They’ve been doing this since old Slick Willie was in office, and they’ll continue to do it as long as they’re in power.”
— Hagerstown

“More reasons every day why we should have voted — got Mayor Bruchey back into office, after the blunders we read every day in the paper. And he was the best mayor we’ve ever had, and he was really good for this town. Such a shame. After the headlines of Thursday’s paper, that’s just the icing on the cake.”
— Hagerstown

“I just want to say that I agree with Leonard Pitts’ column in the March 28 Herald-Mail, about is it too much to ask for a human being to answer a phone. I thoroughly agree. We have to agree with him that we need to have a human being answer our phones.”
— Berkeley Springs, W.Va.

“Our sincere appreciation to the commissioners that supported Fairplay being closed. To commissioners Barr, Callaham, Cline and McKinley: Thank you for being representatives of our local government that did the right thing and voted for the safety and welfare of the citizens of Fairplay. What President Baker was thinking needs an explanation. How President Baker cannot see a fire company with the problems and history of wrongdoing under current leadership should be a red flag to the voters of Washington County. How many chances did you want to give them, Mr. Baker?”
— Fairplay

“I keep reading how great the Democrats are at running the country. What a joke. The tax-and-spend policies are not working, and are driving our debt into oblivion. We will never get out of debt in our lifetime. I can just hope that in the next election, voters take a good look at the person running for office, and not the party. It’s the only way we can get qualified people with the good of this nation at heart. Today’s elected officials’ main concern is getting re-elected and keeping the party happy. This country is spinning out of control and they don’t have a clue how to fix it.”
— South Pointe
