Mail Call - July 19

July 18, 2013

“To the caller from Greencastle: With any luck, they should have the intersection of 11 and 16 finished by Christmas. Of course, they’ll have to change their work schedule to do that. They’ll have to work on it more than one day a week. And if there are five people on the job, they need to find something for the three men watching the other two run the machinery.”
— Greencastle, Pa.


“To the woman or man, whoever he is, in Williamsport, says he saves $10 on a carton of cigarettes ... Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia or Delaware: If he’s getting a carton of cigarettes out of state, and there’s no state tax stamp on there, they can get themselves in trouble. A pack’s all right, but a carton, no.”
— Hagerstown


“Day Road caller Monday, July 8, ‘Whatever happened to names, you know, everybody calling everybody names, this names, that, what happened to “sticks and stones will break my bones, but names will never hurt me”? But all of a sudden they hurt now. I must have missed the note.’ The note you missed was, nobody should be calling everybody names. That’s called bullying. I guess you haven’t heard of that, bullying.”
— Hagerstown


“On Wednesday, July 10, 2013, the very first article in Mail Call said: ‘Could someone please tell me how people who do not deserve Social Security disability get it, and people who deserve it cannot get it. Somebody please answer that question. I think it should be looked into.’ Anybody that deserves Social Security disability — it could be for any disability; it could be for reading, for seeing, being crippled or whatever — if you deserve it, you can get it. All you have to do is keep ... I recently was approved for Social Security disability. It took me 4 1/2 years, letters from doctors and everything else, to get it. If you really deserve it, you can get it.”
— Washington County


“I’m calling about the Boonsboro Town Council to allow dogs in Shafer Park. What were they thinking? People will be walking in dog waste. Very few people will pick up after their dogs. And what if someone is bitten by a dog? Last week I saw one go in where the playground equipment is, and their dog went to the bathroom, and it was not picked up.”
— Boonsboro
