Caller ID falls short in this area Woman learns, finally, AT&T won't connect info network to local system By KERRY LYNN FRALEY Staff Writer Starting new home telephone service after her recent move to Keedysville, Stephanie Crowley agreed to try out Bell Atlantic's Caller ID Deluxe service, which she was told would allow her to see a caller's name and number on a separate display unit. Crowley said she based the decision on a positive memory of the service, which she had during its test-marketing in the Toronto, Canada, area in 1990 and 1991 and the good experiences friends have had. She said she wasn't warned by Bell Atlantic about its limitations in identifying out-of-area callers, so she assumed she'd get the information on long distance calls as well.

"Not a day goes by that I don't read in the paper or see on the TV where someone new has West Nile or someone has died from West Nile. Recently, I saw a question in Mail Call where someone asked when the government is going to step up on their procedures for spraying for mosquitos. You see on TV where down in Baltimore and different places they are spraying and they have also told people what to do. Dump all water containers, leave nothing around with water in where the mosquitos can breed, lay eggs and hatch.

When Chris McAfee watched himself chastising his Little Leaguer son Jeremy on national TV Thursday, he wasn't proud of what he saw. "It made me open my eyes, sitting back and watching me," McAfee said Friday. "It showed me that maybe I'm a little too hard on him. " McAfee, his wife Lisa, and Jeremy were among several Hagerstown-area residents featured on the 90-minute Peter Jennings Reporting special on ABC called "The American Game," which follows the National Little League here through the 1997 season.

“This is on 'Bike paths and trees, wasteful projects.' I'd like to respond to Rosalee Myers. I agree with you 100 percent, ma'am. The bike paths, you know, if there is some place for somebody to ride a bike, but out here on the city streets, I think it's ridiculous. Somebody's going to get killed, then they're going to blame the car driver or something. But these construction people have to build homes and all, they have to plant so many trees and all like that. Go out Salem Avenue ... and look at the trees planted on the road.

"That caller who claimed that now, under O'Malley, we supposedly have a good PSC that's working for us was joking, right? This is the same PSC, under the same governor, that approved the fluorescent bulb surcharge rip-off and only rescinded it when a tidal wave of public outrage forced them to do so. I don't want or need that kind of 'working for us,' even if you do. " - Frederick, Md. "Life was so much easier when there was a Democrat in...
