Mail Call - Aug. 12

“I see in the newspaper where Boonsboro High School is considering installing artificial turf on their football field. At one time, there was a stigma attached to artificial turf, that it was causing joint problems because of cleats sticking into artificial turf. Folks, please give this consideration in your determining whether to get artificial turf versus natural.”
— Boonsboro

“I believe that they should put ‘No pet allowed’ signs at the Clear Spring carnival because my dog was told that I had to remove it from the property, and that is not right. There were other animals there, and I feel that they should put ‘No pets allowed’ signs.”
— Clear Spring

“To the caller who said he, if he could vote for President Obama for a third term, he has done such a great job, he would vote for him: Welfare’s the highest it’s ever been, more people on food stamps, gas prices have never come back down. Benghazi, which he says is a trumped-up plan to make him look bad, four Americans killed. The IRS ... was a very serious scandal. He’s always blaming the Republicans. Now he can’t blame Bush no more, now he’ll blame the Republicans. Everything he does, he blames the other person, and he never leaves.”
— Boonsboro

“I understand that the city is buying up and fixing up all these properties and what have you. And we’re still only going to get minimum-wage jobs. If they would spend more time on working on getting something in here that pays some money for people to work at, the place would be in much better shape. Wake up, mayor and city council.”
— Hagerstown

“If Fredericksburg offered a good deal, Mr. Quinn, please take it. At least give it some serious thought this week. Hagerstown can’t afford a new stadium, and Fredericksburg is an up-and-growing community who wants you. Please choose wisely, and then run and get what you deserve. Here, you’re not getting anything, just talk.”
— Hagerstown

“How many of you elderly remember, way back when, that most of the local banks provided a service called a Christmas Club, a little account that you opened up and probably put a dollar a week in the Christmas account, so that at the end of the year, you had $50 to do your Christmas shopping? The amazing part is that it seemed to work.”
— Maugansville
