Whether or not malarkey was spewed out in the first and only vice presidential debate Thursday between Congressman Paul Ryan and Vice President Joe Biden, area residents still were willing to give their take on it Friday. “Biden had much more content than Ryan had,” said Maryland Sen. Ronald N. Young, D-Frederick/Washington. “In sticking to facts, Biden won. Paul Ryan, like Romney, won't give any specifics on his tax cut plan, and I don't think he has a good hold on foreign affairs.” Maryland Sen. Christopher B. Shank, R-Washington, said he did not like Biden's behavior in the debate, even though he thought the debate went well overall.

Men and women who serve country are heroes To the editor: There were different battles of war in which our military men and women served and died. There are different branches of military. There are currently people serving overseas; some veterans have already served. My daughter has served for one year overseas. The military men and women carried with them a symbol of being a proud American to serve their country. If our flag could talk and tell us stories of where it has been, and the current places.

“Every day when you pick up the paper now, there's been a fatal accident in the Tri-State area. I just wonder what's going on.” - Hagerstown “Concerning building a new baseball stadium in Hagerstown, the old Central Chemical site, which was cleaned up with federal superfund money, and the old New York Central Iron Works, are in the city, may be owned by the city, and would make an excellent location. In addition, the shopping center only has one store in it. I think this should be thought about, in lieu of tearing down the middle of downtown Hagerstown.” - Washington County “I agree with the recent caller that you can't legislate the poor into prosperity by tapping the wealthy.

In 2011, the Siena College Research Institute asked 238 presidential scholars to again rank presidents. This was the fifth time for such evaluation and included the incumbent president. President Franklin Roosevelt was given the honor of first place, George W. Bush was given 40th and Barack Obama was given 15th. While all of this is interesting, would we not be better served if these 238 historians gave us an independent, professional assessment of candidates for such a high office before Election Day so that voters could make a more informed decision?

“I called in a week ago about a house on Fairview Mountain in Clear Spring, that the landlord just let go. Weeds grow up, and it looks terrible. Every time we ride by there, we have to look at that, and it looks awful. And they put a picture on the front of the paper a couple days ago about a house in Hagerstown. I think they need the one in there on Fairview Mountain because these people live in the country, they should be just as liable as the people in the city.” - Washington County “I'm calling just to ask a question.

Pa. taxpayers are overfunding charter schools To the editor: Reps. Rob Kauffman and Todd Rock and Sen. Rich Alloway claim to support public education and the taxpayers in their districts who struggle with their property tax bills. Unfortunately, their actions tell a very different story. The Waynesboro and Greencastle-Antrim school districts recently announced massive budget deficits for the 2013-14 school year. These school districts will likely cut educational programs and raise taxes to cover the shortfall.  With the stroke of a pen, our area legislators could save Franklin County school districts millions of dollars each year by fixing a broken funding formula and eliminating wasteful spending on cyber charter schools.

“I hear that the GOP are all up in arms because Joe Biden appeared to be laughing at some of Paul Ryan's grandiose claims last night. Did their poor little puppy get his feelings hurt?” - Chambersburg, Pa.   “U.S. Congressman Paul Broun, Republican, of the House science committee, said that he does not accept the science of evolution, embryology, or the Big Bang theory. Congressman Todd Akin says that women cannot get pregnant when legitimately raped. ... Republicans in Congress think global warming is a hoax.
