Mail Call - June 28

June 27, 2013

“I was just calling about the responses of the archery in the schools. I just want everybody to remember that not only did we have archery in our schools, we also were able to take safety gun courses in our schools. It was usually on Saturdays, and you would go there for I don’t know how many hours, to take your test. You’d have a presentation, you’d take a test, and then you would have your gun safety certificate.”
— Hagerstown

“I think it’s time for Washington County to open a Jewish community center. There are almost no resources for the growing Jewish population in this area. There is a single synagogue in downtown Hagerstown, and that is it. It’s just not enough anymore. JCC membership is open to everyone, regardless of race or religion. However, they also offer the benefit of diverse activities and services which offer a gateway to Jewish life.”
— Boonsboro

“As a city homeowner and taxpayer, I want to say that I like Penny Nigh. She’s working for me, and she has my vote. Thank you, Penny Nigh.”
— Hagerstown

“I wish the president well, because that means the country’s doing well. But this president is a disaster, and the country is a disaster. Has anyone seen the economy lately? Maybe tried to go to get some gas at a gas station lately? That’s why this president is a disaster; the economy is a disaster.”
— Chambersburg, Pa.

“I think charter home rule is a great idea — if we want to give more power and control to the ... wealthy people that control the county.”
— Williamsport

“I would just like to know where Councilman Don Munson, where he gets the idea ... that you wait for Virginia, to see what they’re going to do regarding the Suns, see whether they’re going to build a stadium or not. That’s like saying, well, we’ll wait until the cows get out, and then we’ll shut the gate up. So come on, Councilman Munson, you’ve been my man for a long time when you were running for the state Senate. ... Put your thinking cap on.”
— Hagerstown

“I see there’s a nice story of the history of businesses that used to be in Hagerstown. How about a story on why they are no longer in Hagerstown?”
— Hagerstown

“In regard to last Saturday’s headlines about Russo’s pharmacy, why is there no mention of any doctor, or doctors, writing these prescriptions that presumably were not appropriate?”
— Hagerstown

“Many years ago, we were given the right to bear arms, to protect our homes and families, and I don’t think it should be taken away. And all this talk about gun control and everything, well, now what about the pressure cookers and the stabbings with the knives and all? Are they going to take those away? No, they just want to take our guns away, and I don’t think that’s right.”
— Mount Lena

“I was wondering how many people actually read the comic page anymore. I used to love to, but I’ve noticed, there for a while there, for several weeks, the writer for ‘Rex Morgan,’ all he was drawing was scantily clad women at the beach, or in motel rooms. This I found rather strange. And please, please, take the ‘Family Circus’ out of the comic page ... but I guess that’s amusing to some people.”
— Hagerstown

“Hey, ‘Brevity’ has got to go. Not funny, not even close.”
— Hagerstown

“Concerning city Councilman Don Munson’s statements regarding the stadium and Hagerstown, I’m very disappointed in Mr. Munson. I’ve been a lifelong supporter of his, contributed to his campaign, vehemently supported him in his state Senate run. ... Don, you have to realize that Hagerstown, as it exists, cannot afford the building of a new stadium.”
— Hagerstown

“The fate of the Hagerstown Suns was decided whenever the ... do-nothing mayor and council was elected in November. All this talk recently about the Suns from those people is just to get the public to blame the Suns’ owner, whenever they do leave. No, he is not to blame. It’s these people.”
— Williamsport

“I noticed something conspicuously missing from these articles about the city selling properties downtown. It says about what the purchaser is paying for them, but it never says how much the city had to pay for it in the first place. I don’t know if this is an error or if it’s being done on purpose, but it’d be nice to know.”
— Halfway

“To the person who criticized the salary of the Washington County school superintendent, and claimed that no one else in Washington County makes as much or more money: I would like to know if you have considered that the school system is the biggest employer in the county, and has responsibility for over 22,000 students. Have you ever investigated the salaries of the superintendents in other counties in Maryland? Or the salaries of CEOs in Washington County, such as Volvo, Meritus?”
— Hagerstown

“The (letter) in today’s paper said big names would draw more to The Maryland Theatre. That’s true, but big name performers want venues in the tens of thousands, not 1,400. For them to come to Hagerstown before a crowd of 1,400, they would have to charge probably in the hundreds for tickets, to pay for them, plus can The Maryland Theatre handle all of the new electronic? ... but not realistic.”
— Williamsport

“This mayor and city council that we have now is the worst ever.”
— Hagerstown
