"I am a veteran's wife, and I know how agonizing it was when we had to go over to Martinsburg hospital. I know Hagerstown has a clinic, but it's not the same as a hospital. And I think the Washington County Hospital, as it stands on King Street, would be a wonderful veterans hospital, and I would love to see that happen, because the veterans have to come from up in Pennsylvania to go to Martinsburg. So let's have one in Hagerstown."
"It was so sad to read that a true American hero died on Jan. 2, 2011. Maj. Richard Winters of 'Band of Brothers' fame has left us. Why is it that some people get media attention on a daily basis, yet a true hero only gets a passing mention? God rest you, Maj. Winters, along with all U.S. veterans."
"How curious that I've not seen those war protesters standing (in) the public square since President Obama took office. Is the war over? Has he brought all the troops home? Aren't those killed in his war in Afghanistan as precious as those who were killed in Iraq? Or were the protests really just another left-wing political statement?"
"I'm tipping my hat to the Greencastle-Antrim school board. How brave you guys are to want to raise taxes so high. I'm going to support you by walking to work in Waynesboro, I'm going on a diet to cut my food costs, and probably sell my car so I can keep my house. That should cover my additional taxes for a year, anyway."

"The liberal Democrats will stop at nothing to try to wipe out free speech. Now, Fox News is responsible for the tragedy in Arizona, so says the Demos. Did speaking the truth, as Fox does, cause the Romans to kill Christ, Lincoln, Kennedy, John the Baptist, bring bombing and terror to so many innocent countries, including USA, i.e., 9/11? Fox wasn't around then."
"You can be sure that every time the Washington County Commissioners go into closed session, they are spending taxpayers' money that they don't have. They need to be concentrating on paying off the $190 million debt they have. You can be sure that everything they do in closed session is taxpayers' business. Closed session should not be allowed for any reason at all."
