"In regards to today's paper, Monday the 31st, whoever it is that's always picking on the police for using their cell phones, as I have stated in the past — pay attention this time — they are generally talking to their headquarters. They've got other things to do other than watching for you ... talking on your cell phones. Get off the policeman's back."
"This is a senior alert. Beware of the scams about the electric companies. You will not save $50 on your electric bill like they say, when changing electric companies. You will pay double or more."
"I want to thank the Washington County Roads Department for a great job, and especially the plow operator in the Huyetts area, for keeping the hills clean on Resh Road, which usually are a nightmare."
"This is for the people with their opinion on what to do with the old Washington County hospital building. They want the city of Hagerstown or the state of Maryland to take it over. Don't these people in Washington County know that that's going to cost taxpayers more money? And there's better things to spend your money on than an old building. Please tear that thing down."
"Thank you, Lester Hart, for the great article on your brother, Harold. I've wondered for 70 years exactly what those fellows went through in the Philippines. Thanks again. It was a great story. I certainly hope that every youngster in the county or the country reads that, because it's something worthwhile for the history."
"I'm tired about the complaining about the historical tags. I own and drive two vehicles with the historical tags, and they will pass emissions, if you want to pay to have them checked. They were checked before I purchased the tags. I don't feel the need to buy a new import to impress my neighbors. And by the way, the one gets almost 30 mpg on the highway, and I've owned the vehicles since they were new. So I'm sorry you have to keep up with the Joneses — I don't. Have a nice day."
