Nicky, former teen queen, walked purposefully toward the house with lights blazing two blocks away. Already, they heard loud music. In the house, she knew, were all the popular people at her school. Claire, Nicky's former BFF, had invited everyone but Nicky. Behind Nicky came Jay, her sweet, long-haired boyfriend who would rather strum a guitar quietly by himself than go to a party with the most popular people at school. "Are you sure about this?" Jay asked hesitantly as they neared their destination.

"This is to the person who called in on Nov. 17 about people riding their bumpers. If you people would learn how to drive, we wouldn't have to ride your bumpers. You go down the street and you gawk at everything except for what you're supposed to be doing. You try to light your cigarettes, you act like a bunch of idiots. You're supposed to be in your car on the road to go somewhere. Stop gawking around like an idiot and drive like you're supposed to. Get where you're going and we won't drive on your tail but until then beware - I'll be right there behind you, especially if you are in my way!"

" "About the new wheeled weapon that the sheriff's department has, I know it's Homeland Security money, but I don't think it was very wisely spent. I've been in law enforcement for quite a few years, and we need much more technology than assault vehicles.

He may have joined the Texas Air National Guard, but at least he did something for his country.

"There happens to be nothing wrong with loud music in church. I've been employed for several years at a quiet church, and it's all I can do to sit and be quiet, because God didn't make me a quiet person. God made me a loud person. It says right in the Bible that we should shout and praise God with our hearts and our voices. Why must we continue to sit in a quiet church? I don't know, the churches need to get a life, really, and they need to realize it's OK to be loud sometimes. " — Hagerstown "In regards to this morning's paper, the article on the pension deal, and I quote where it says he said, — Only some of the money taken in through increased contributions will go to the pension fund.

"I am a resident of the East End of town near Pony League Park. To the city, what happened to the walk bridge that went across Hamilton Creek? This stream is polluted and the children have to either walk through that mess or go out onto Jefferson Boulevard into the main line of traffic. Residents use that walk bridge to cross over to watch the Pony League games. That bridge has been there for almost 45 years and I cannot understand for the life of me why anyone or why the city would take that bridge out. Are they going to put a new one in there, because it is not safe for the children?
