Mail Call - July 16

July 15, 2013

“I’m calling up about the bike week ... in the city of Hagerstown. Well, there’s more than that, than just inside of Hagerstown. There’s a motorcycle race up at Hagerstown Speedway that provides the best motorcycle riders in the country from the AMA series. And there was not one coverage on that in the newspaper, advertisement all over the place for it, but there’s more sports going on than just a ball game in Hagerstown. ... There’s other sports going on in Washington County.”

“I read in today’s July 8 Herald-Mail that the piano music was missed from the Saturday morning farmer’s market. I regularly attend Saturday morning’s market, and do not miss the piano music. My friends and I like to sit and enjoy a breakfast ... and not because of religious music. I hope they do not bring the piano back.”

“I think it’s a real shame that a few unruly, disrespectful juveniles ruined the finale of the fireworks display at Fairgrounds Park, because they couldn’t go there and behave themselves. I think an appropriate punishment for these juveniles would be to clean up the fairgrounds after the fireworks display for the next two years.”

“I’m calling about churches that talk about another denomination. I think it’s very wrong. I think they’re judging them, and almost every church I have ever went to has cut up certain particular religions. And having gone there as a child, I know what they’re saying isn’t right. Shouldn’t they be praying for those people, and not judging them, if they think that what they’re doing is wrong?”

“I agree with the Hagerstown caller that our city and county officials, along with the Maryland General Assembly, have some explaining to do, in what they do with all the hotel/motel tax money that was supposed to be used for the stadium. This is ridiculous that we’re going to lose our team to another city because they can’t get off their hands. They’ve been playing with this for years. ... All the money that the baseball games generate will leave the city, thus making your taxes go up, not down. Keeping the Suns will help keep the taxes down.”
— Hagerstown
