“Would someone please tell me how many games a year the Suns play in Hagerstown? Also, I agree with the person from Monrovia, Md. Baseball players do not need to wear gloves, and I’m sick of the girls putting their hair behind their ear.”
“I have not heard anything of what is to become of the present stadium if a new one is built. Municipal Stadium has a lot of history here for us, and I feel it should be kept. It would make more sense and save a lot of money if they would renovate Municipal Stadium. There is no guarantee, if this new stadium is built downtown, that everything they will say will happen, or if the Suns, after a few years, don’t up and leave. With this bad economy, people are not going to pay $8 a ticket and pay for parking, too.”
“Hagerstown caller, because you urge only Republicans not to vote, and falsely claim Romney’s views are moderate, when his stated primary views are quite conservative, I don’t believe you’re a conservative or a Republican. It’s a longtime, often-used, leftist partisan tactic to pose as your opponent to attack our candidate, and I urge fellow Republicans not to fall for it, and vote for Romney. Not my first choice, but far preferable to President Obama, because not voting is, in effect, voting to re-elect Obama.”

“I’m not against a new senior center here in Washington County, but Hagerstown Community College is not the proper location. I’m not against a new baseball stadium, but the Baltimore Street location is not the best for the city and county.”
“I hope Heather’s article on page A1 of today’s paper is in error. Otherwise, the county recycling program is going from dumb to dumber. We live in the pilot area, so we’re going to have to pay a private company to profit from our recycling, since we’re not going to be allowed to use the county landfill, where recycling is free. OK, although it’s not going to be free anymore, it’s going to charge us $3 a month.”
“If the commissioners and everybody that is voting to put this stadium in the center of Hagerstown really want to know what should be done, they ought to put it up for a vote before the people, and do what the people want, not what they want. The people are the ones who they are working for, not themselves. So they should put it up before a vote for the people.”

“Instead of the West Virginia Department of Transportation having meetings for bicycle paths all over Jefferson County, how about finishing Route 340, the 3.9 miles to the Virginia line? The bicycle paths over the county is a waste of taxpayers’ money.”
— Charles Town, W.Va.
“I read the police briefs, the Hagerstown police briefs, and I’m just alarmed at the number of domestic violence issues. Last week in four days there were five domestic violence incidents. This week in four days, there were seven. What’s going on, Hagerstown?”
“You know what I’ve heard from the Republican Party in the last two weeks? Silence, dead silence. You blame President Obama for the gas prices going up. Why don’t you blame him or give him credit when they’re going down? Went down 11 cents in the last two weeks. Come on, call Mail Call. Holler, scream, ‘Obama, gas prices are going down. It’s your fault.’ I didn’t think so.”
“I am sick and tired of people making comments about ... football teams and baseball teams in Mail Call. These things are irrelevant in such hard economic times. We need to focus on getting President Obama out of the White House.”
