“I pray no contractor listens to the consulting firm from Laurel, Md., that unveiled a plan for the former hospital site. We certainly do not need 69 more townhouses. There are as many as five or more locations where townhouses were approved but never built. Someone needs to give us a count of the foreclosure and empty properties already in our town.”
“Anyone who is happy over the outcome of the election should look at President Obama’s efforts to enact a U.N. arms trade treaty, and the U.N. ‘Defamation of Religions’ Resolution. Take a close look at the deals that are made with the Bank for International Settlements. Keep in mind, treaty is the law of the land, and overrides the Bill of Rights.”
“I just read in the paper where Funkstown town council banned metal detecting from their park, and they said, one of them said that the reason was that anything that’s in the ground should stay in the ground. I don’t understand that attitude. It seems to me that people that do that stuff, that metal detecting stuff, they’re finding artifacts, things that ... I wouldn’t do it, but I think it must, might be a good hobby. I’ve seen people doing that at the beach.”
“I would like to thank the lady who found my dog in Waynesboro Monday night, and kept him safe and then turned him in to the Humane Society. I don’t know who you are, but God does, and I’m praying He gives you a special blessing for doing this. You have my deepest gratitude and thanks.”

“I have a friend of mine who voted for President Obama four years ago, but he voted for Mitt Romney this time around. I voted for McCain four years ago, and I voted for Romney this time around. And I said to him, ‘How could this happen?’ He said more people want something for free, and they don’t care about or know about what happened in Benghazi. I think that’s right.”
“I’m calling about the search for a new director for the Humane Society. I’m hoping the next director will be a person that ... will seek to save the animals’ lives, not put them down, try to make it easier for people to adopt, and replace the animals to a place where they can live out their lives.”
“I guess we now know what kind of character Mitt Romney has. He’s a bad loser, a sore loser, and now he’s bringing up the fact that the president got voted in because of gifts. Well, how about the gifts that he was ready to give away? I think he’s just a bad loser, and now we get a good view of his character.”

“Great job, mayor and council, on your choice to fill the vacant council seat with a woman. Hope to see her stay for the election.”
“About the stories about some of the people competing in the JFK 50-Mile, I do not get it. Why not stories from important people, like policemen, firemen, doctors, veterans, teachers, nurses, etc.?”

“First off, I’m not in favor of building a new stadium for the Suns, but if we are intent on building a new stadium, I would suggest a place that I haven’t seen suggested yet. I would suggest building it on Sharpsburg Pike, beside the McDonald’s. There’s a large expanse of land there. ... It’s right near the interstate. That would be a good spot, in my view.”
