“West Virginia has never been known as a very progressive or forward-looking state, but at present, there are three minor league stadiums planned in the very, very near future in West Virginia; one in Morgantown, one in Bridgeport and one in Parkersburg. In this respect, West Virginia, these cities are leaving Hagerstown in the dust. And Hagerstown ... (is) covered with dust because nothing is going on.”

“Can somebody please tell me how a certain propane company outside of Hagerstown, but not far, can charge you so much a month, and if you’re over 30 days, give you a finance charge, and then on top of that give you a $25 collection fee? Somebody please explain to me if that can be done.”
— Hagerstown


“Referring back to a caller who stated he was tired of ‘being blackmailed by the Hagerstown Suns’ and ‘don’t ask us for more money,’ the City of Hagerstown and Washington County owe the Suns that money; over the past several years, the city and county have squandered the income derived from the hotel/restaurant tax revenues that was devised for the purpose of building a new stadium. Why aren’t the city and county being held accountable for raiding that account for purposes other than what it was created for?”
— Hagerstown

Breast Cancer Awareness of Cumberland Valley because if they do research for that, they’ll find that 100 percent of that goes back into the four-state area. I do know that as a fact.”
— Smithsburg


“I am a senior citizen widow who is very tired of being called about 60 times, from John from the shipping department, a 410 number, from RX Assistance, a 616 number, and bank card, a 616 number. They aren’t even in our area. Can’t someone stop these? I am on the Do Not Call list, and John from shipping just called again during my dinner. They also call weekends.”
