Suns were a hit with Little League
To the editor:
The Challenger Little League division of the Maugansville Little League expresses its sincere gratitude to the Hagerstown Suns organization, its players, coaches and in particular Sara Grasmon for their efforts in making our night at the Hagerstown Suns very special.
The Suns players willingly came out and "played" an inning with the Challenger teams on July 1. The players had a chance to mix and mingle and get some tips from the Suns — and the excitement to stand on the diamond beside future big league ball players was incredible.
The parents were also thrilled to see their kids have the chance to shine in the Suns spotlight for just a little while. Challenger also expresses gratitude to Centra Bank, Meritus Health System and 1240 AM WJEJ. These businesses made it possible for our group to enjoy the evening. Their support brought the players and their caregivers to the ball park for an unforgettable night of baseball on a field of dreams.

When did ACLU become illegal immigrant advocate?
To the editor:
I've been following the story on Del. Neil Parrott's petition drive to get SB 167 onto the ballot, so that the people of Maryland can vote on the issue. Parrott utilized the Internet to make it possible for Marylanders to have a voice on this issue, rather than have a few politicians introduce a bill at the last minute, behind closed doors, in the middle of the night and shove it down our throats without, we the people, even knowing that it exists. But, be that what it may.
Now I see that the American Civil Liberties Union of Maryland has written to the Maryland State Election Board and asked that the legality of the online system of petitioning that Parrott utilized be examined, because it thinks that it may be susceptible to fraud. Duh! There is no system in the world that is not susceptible to fraud.
I have read the applicable Comar law, and the election process law, and I see no infringement of the law by the use of the Internet. Of course, I do not claim to be an expert on election law. The point that I would like to make here is this: When did the "American" Civil Liberties Union become an advocate for Illegal Immigrants?
Mountaintop festival was a success
To the editor:
I am writing to thank a number of people and organizations for making the 6th Annual Mountaintop Heritage Days, which were recently held on June 25 and 26 in Blue Ridge Summit, Pa., and Cascade, a rousing success. First, thanks to all who attended and participated in the two-day event. The fireworks were spectacular as usual, and the Salute to our Armed Forces by the Williamsport Community Band dramatic and stirring.
Second, I can't praise nor thank enough the over 90 One Mountain Foundation members and community volunteers who came out and helped with the dirty, but necessary, tasks of directing traffic, parking or picking up trash.
