"I'd like to respond to a person from Hancock ... about putting on freezes. They're talking about the president putting on federal raises, which is good — they should. They're going to need to put a freeze on groceries and everything else right now. They hit it right on the button. Our president and our politicians should freeze everything; gas, groceries. The city and county should do the same thing. The governments needs to freeze everything. People don't have jobs. The politicians don't understand that.

"I have a problem with Mail Call. I'd like to know how come most people can only get a tiny little article in, and other people have - go on and on and on and on with long, drawn-out things. And supposedly you time this, and if these people are - they must be speed talkers to get the amount in that they're getting in. There's just something fishy about Mail Call. " - Williamsport "I would like for someone to explain to me why Route 40 going out of Hagerstown is a 35 mile (per hour)

SMITHSBURG -- Smithsburg Police Chief George L. Knight Jr. has decided to push for a lower speed limit in Smithsburg's "core" town area after hearing concerns from residents about speeding in the area. The speed limit in the core area is currently 30 mph, but Mayor Mildred "Mickey" Myers said after Tuesday's regular Smithsburg Town Council meeting that town police officers usually don't issue speeding tickets until motorists reach a few miles over the speed limit. Then motorists start abusing that leeway, Myers said.
