I’m calling in about that photograph of Raven Rock that was in the paper. Isn’t that beautiful and something to see? I’m just wondering why that place has been cut off to the public. That view is equal to the Smokey Mountains or to The Breaks Interstate Park or anywhere else. I don’t know why on earth that wouldn’t be open to the public in a place like here where there’s nothing anyway. They’re fixing up Pine Mountain in the Whitesburg area, so I don’t know why Jenkins won’t try to get Raven Rock opened up for people to enjoy.

.

The federal budget deficit is so big now the only way to deal with it is to cut Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. I think the people who voted for the people who are doing this get what they deserve.

.

To a certain person: For 17 years you have been a part of my life. We were definitely a meant-to-be couple, and even after all that we have been through my heart still beats for you. My love for you is never-ending. I shouldn’t have turned my back. Always remember there is a true love, and that no one can replace a woman who needs your embrace. You are the legs that carry me on, and the hope of you coming home will keep me moving on. I love you forever and ever. And yes my love, I will show you.

.

Does a certain store in Whitesburg have a new person answering the phone? I’ve never called down there without getting somebody to talk to immediately. Today I call and all I get is the radio blaring wide open for five minutes.

.

Is anybody else out there having problems with the Kentucky River Area Development District (KRADD)?

.

It’s no wonder Senator Rand Paul got his ribs broken. He looks more like a woman than he does a man.

.

Is it me or does Representative Paul Ryan look like little Eddie Munster all grown up?

.

To a certain woman in the apartments at Burdine: How does it feel to take someone’s boyfriend from them after your sister had a baby by him? Shame on you.

We also have on Bill Moore Branch today a red light district. We don’t have the light, but we do have the district.

.

People jump to conclusions about a lot of situations. I was watching the news this morning on some offbeat channel and heard the statement that under this tax cut, President Trump would save maybe a billion dollars. Well, more power to him if that’s the way it is. The man told me on TV that he’s losing bigtime. Everything the media does to try to prove Trump wrong fires right back in their faces. I hope the man can save some on his taxes. You people are so jealous about any situation the Republicans try to hand out. God bless Mr. Trump and God bless America.

.

I’ve never heard so much nosiness in my life. Let me tell you something: I love my husband more than anything, and I will support him and stand by him until the day I die. So you can just keep telling all these stupid lies and nonsense. I know exactly who started them and I’m not going anywhere. And believe me, there is no problem. So suck it up, buttercups.

.

A certain man in the Neon area shouldn’t be allowed to be saved after he raped all of those children. He plea-bargained and he got away with it — twice — after doing it to his own family. Shame on him.

.

I think there is going to be some fun at the Whitesburg Christmas Parade. I heard just now that there’s going to be a silent auction on the street on front of The Thirsty Heifer for the Lions Club. If the weather is bad the auction will probably be inside the restaurant. People should come by and see what they’ve got for sale at the auction, including a lot of homemade items and other Christmas presents. It will be on December 8 at 6 o’clock.

.

I hope more people wake up and help with the fight in Frankfort to make marijuana legal. I hope our state legislators, including our own Angie Hatton, work to make medical marijuana legal. Marijuana grows great in impoverished eastern Kentucky, so let’s get together and get behind marijuana for its many cures. Also, the highly taxed marijuana plant could help more than one revenue stream, including helping our teachers.

.

I want to have a long talk with the man who invented Cling Wrap.

(What would you say to him — that you really were the first to come up with the idea way back when you were 12 and trying to make the Saran wrap stick to the Jell-O bowl but your forgot to patent it?)

.

Hey, Jenkins and Neon, don’t let that child molester fool you by telling you he’s been saved. How can a man who rapes little children like he did be saved?

.

To a woman from Eolia: Thanks for letting your husband go coon hunting. I really enjoyed the company.

.

Well it’s Santa Claus time again. Come January when the bills are due it’s going to be Satan Claus time.

.

The state highway department was working on the road at Sandlick Fire Department the other day and had only had two little signs on either side announcing the work. Many people drove all the way up to where the road was closed completely before they could get any idea that the road was closed completely. Why didn’t the boss of that job put up a sign at the top of Sandlick Gap and the mouth of Sandlick announcing that the road was closed at the fire department? He wasn’t doing much of job by allowed so many people to drive all the way up there only to find out they couldn’t get by because they had the road cut in two.

.

Can someone please tell me how and why the TVs are so bad? I have the ‘smart’ TVs and the channels are not watchable. Can someone please tell me what I can do to maybe fix this problem?

(When the picture goes bad at our place it’s usually the fault of the ‘dumb’ TV operator who can never find the remote control. Whether that’s the case or not at your place your place, you might try calling your cable or satellite provider and have them help figure out what is wrong.)

.

This is for Magistrate Woody Holbrook: I would never vote for you again. I voted for you once, thinking that you would try to help the people of the Mayking and Thornton area, but you have done nothing for us. No, you’ll never get my vote again or the vote of anyone else in my family. I am sorry, but that’s the way it is.

.

I want to order a ton of coal and send it to Washington, D.C., so they can have it to fill all of the Christmas stockings of those who have been naughty and not nice.

.

It’s amazing how a certain person can live in Redfox in Knott County and bring their garbage all the way over to Doty Creek in Letcher County at their mother’s house just to keep from having to pay a garbage bill over there. That shows you how people who don’t pay their bills keep getting by with everything.

.

It’s funny that the big tax cut gives the big corporations incentive to cut American jobs and send them overseas. It’s funny that big corporations get a tax break for hiring Mexicans and not Americans. It’s funny that the big corporations hire Mexicans and then talk about illegal immigrants.

.

Does anyone know how many people Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton have lied to? What’s the big deal now?

.

Our baby girl wants you to come home. Shawna said ‘Da-Da.’ So you can come home if you want.

.

Mr. Trump, they are telling you to slow down on your tweeting. Well thank God that you can tweet. This is America, and you keep on tweeting in the free world, my friend. We want to know what’s going on. You say what you want to say. When they all get to the end of the river they will see who is holding the dam up.

.

What’s on my mind is a certain Jeep with out-ofstate plates and a beautiful lady driving it. I would very much love to get out and have dinner with the driver. I would very much love to talk with her.

.

Us elderly people can’t afford this $500 deductible for our health insurance. Then they holler ‘copay, copay.’ I wish they would stick that copay where the sun doesn’t shine. The people in charge don’t care as long as they get their dollar.

.

From what I can find out, land patents, bankruptcies, and immigration matter can be handled in federal court only. Thank you.

.

To the caller who said teachers don’t do anything to earn their salaries: Let me tell you something. I’m the mother of a teacher and my daughter spends over half her pay by putting it back into supplies for her classroom. Walk in a teacher’s shoes for once day and you will find out what they do.

.

Who is the white-haired, big-haired lady in Jenkins who dresses like a 75-yearold stripper? I was at a business in Jenkins and she had to tell me her whole life story even though I didn’t even know her. She used the worst language I ever heard to put down everyone in Jenkins. I can understand why no one would want to have anything to do with her.

.

Yes, I know a good job could bring to Letcher County but I would not help the people of this county if I had to. Yes, the jobs are good pipeline jobs but I’ll make sure no one gets hired from our county and I’ll end this job real quick. Sorry. Merry Christmas.
