By JULIE E. GREENE Staff Writer Hagerstown Planning Commission member Al Boyer said he filed last week to run for Hagerstown City Council because he wants to do his part to continue the progress that has been made in the city. Boyer, 60, of 1142 The Terrace, said he decided to enter the race for one of five council seats on the May 20 general election ballot because some good people had decided not to run again. Council members Mark Jameson and Fred Kramer, with whom Boyer serves on the planning commission, said last week they would not seek to retain their council seats.

Maybe Occupy Wall Street folks would prefer China To the editor: America was not created, built, nor nurtured by angry people. The United States of America was created by our brave founding fathers and mothers who were determined to throw off thousands of years of prior European tribal tyranny and establish a new nation that would be built on the rights of the individual, not the tyranny and pre-eminence of the state. The United States of America, in the 18th century, became the first nation - and to a great degree remains the only nation on earth - to place the individual before the state.

Next week is America's 236th birthday. It is time for cookouts, parades and fireworks. We will salute the red, white and blue here in “the land of the free and the home of the brave!” But do Americans really value freedom? Most of us give lip service to it. We say that we like our ability to choose what we want to buy, go where we want to go and do anything we want within reason. But I am convinced that most Americans today, despite our verbal professions, do not truly believe in freedom.  History would suggest that most people down through the ages have lived under social arrangements characterized by strong and pervasive governmental control over their lives with a corresponding loss of freedom.

I recently received an e-mail containing the reposting of a blog written by Rabbi Steven Pruzansky, the spiritual leader of Congregation B'nai Yeshurun in Teaneck, N.J., and a well-known conservative blogger. The rabbi's comments from his blog (several of which I will quote in this column) are both enlightening and, in the end, alarming. Pruzansky writes: “The most charitable way of explaining the election results of 2012 is that Americans voted for the status quo - for the incumbent president and for a divided Congress.

"This is for the Sharpsburg caller who made the comment about organizing a work crew, road crew and then being qualified to be president. This is, I guess that would be better than one who was an alcoholic and a drug addict, couldn't finish his military time and then was elected president. " - Hagerstown "When I read Mail Call, I can't help but sense people are genuinely miserable. Maybe it's because the Orioles are doing so badly. Maybe it's because the comics aren't that funny anymore.

“Let's talk about the caller from Williamsport's view on President Obama and what he has done in the past three years. Who do you think gave the declaration to Panetta to take out Osama bin Laden, and the night of the State of the Union, to rescue those two hostages held in Somalia for three months? Did you give those declarations, or did Mickey Mouse? Of course not. It was our great president. You need to wake up. I would be ashamed to be so out of touch.” - Hagerstown “This is on the president's State of the Union address.

Maryland residents must take a stand in November To the editor: In the Leonard Pitts column of May 14, he alluded to the direction our country is taking as progress. When in reality it is an uncontrolled, downhill slide into ancient Rome. History does repeat itself; a nation without a relationship with God will stumble. When the people of North Carolina said “Enough is enough,” and voted to ban same-sex marriages, he described it as taking a step backward from progress.
