Mail Call - April 24

April 23, 2013

“This is for the street cleaner here in the wonderful city of Hagerstown. There is a street called Fry Avenue, and somehow he never gets down our street, for about the last three years. I’d appreciate it. And there are two sides to our street, also. It’s one block, one way. I think it won’t take him long to do it. We would appreciate it.”
— Hagerstown

“Nice articles in the paper, the opinion from The Herald-Mail. You hit it on target, with all this rhetoric we hear up here from most of the politicians in Washington County. We can’t bring home the bacon, we make ourself look like a laughing stock. Also, about ‘We’re leaving this city, county, state,’ nice article, but I hope you looked at the gas prices on the 14th of April. It’s 11 cents cheaper than Pennsylvania, and look where all the businesses are going.”
— Hagerstown

“I want to comment on the drag racing on, it’s on Sharpsburg Pike. I was heading in one direction, and three cars were heading toward me, drag racing. I had to pull off the road. I hope the cops are made aware of this. It is very scary, and someone’s going to get killed.”
— Hagerstown

“I would like to know how many times the recycling bins at Kaetzel Road were pulled before we had to buy a separate sticker. How many times is it pulled now? The commissioners should make it all one price again. We have over twice as much recycling as we do trash.”
— South County

“To Hagerstown, who commented about the stabbings in Texas: As I recall, none who were stabbed died, and that, my friend, is the big difference between a knife and a gun attack. Many would have died if shot. The present problem is about guns; maybe knives in the future.”
— Greencastle, Pa.

“I think it’s ridiculous that the borough police in Waynesboro aren’t citing some of these motorists in the borough of Waynesboro for not stopping at the crosswalk, to allow pedestrians to go across the road. I was in Waynesboro Sunday morning, and I was in the crosswalk with my bicycle beside me, waiting to cross the road, and I’ve noticed these motorists just kept on going. They acted as though I wasn’t even there. I guess they assumed that I was maybe a statue, because after all, they do have statues on the street in Waynesboro. But I was no statue, I was a human being, waiting to cross.”
— Greencastle, Pa.

“Very interesting, this afternoon, walking up a little hill, saw a vehicle parked, a city vehicle or a state vehicle, a fire marshal, I believe, I’m not sure. The back window was obstructed with some kind of a logo. Now, back windows are not supposed to be obstructed on any vehicle, so I’m given to understand. Hmm, interesting.”

“I’m not the original one who called in that women are popping out baby after baby to get assistance, but no, we do not want them to have abortions. It’s called prevention. Birth control is offered free at the health department.”
— Hagerstown

“Catherine Skaggs’ letter to the editor today hit it, nail right on the head. They’ll kick Vinnie DiCola, the owner of Rocky’s Pizzas, which has been a pillar, and a wonderful man, and done business in Hagerstown for 30 years and helped the town, they kick him out and give some new owner a $15,000 grant, rather than trying to help him to stay. So you know what? If I was a new business, I really would think twice about going downtown. If I were to fall on hard times, they’re not going to help me, but they’ll give somebody else money to come in and start a new business ... You’re supposed to progress, not regress.”
— Hagerstown

“Why is it that in Hagerstown, a person can be buried in less time than they can get in to see a doctor? Something is wrong with this picture.”
— Hagerstown
