I live in Woodrock and I’ve got to tell you this and tell you now, people. We have got somebody who has got a horse in our neighborhood, and it’s standing in a little, small building. It’s up to chicken manure and horse manure over its feet. I am just wondering why in the world this person ends up getting a horse when he’s already had two that died on him and one of them died in the middle of the road a couple summers back. The vet had to come down here and put it out of its misery because it was hurt. Now, I was just wondering why this person has got a horse and a little small place to keep it, and doesn’t have anywhere else to put it. I think you ought to get rid of this horse or get rid of the one who put it there. Thank you.
I would like to call and say that if anybody doesn’t have a home church in Isom they are welcome to come to the Colson Baptist Church at the Junction.
I’m trying to get in contact with a boy I went to school with. He used to live at Beaver Dam when we went to high school. He used to be married once and got divorced for reasons unknown. He’s married again to some woman who looks like she’s in her 70s. I just want you to know that you can get into contact with me. I work around the Walmart area. Meet at the store after hours on Valentine’s Day, and I can show you what a real woman’s like. And you can forget about the one that you’re married to because, honey, she just isn’t doing it for you.
If anybody has heating problems, they better not get a certain company to work on them, because they don’t know what they’re doing and they don’t know what to do.
I would like to thank Mrs. Marianne Mullins and the 10th District American Legion Post for all they do for the veterans at the Hazard VA Center. I have a relative there, and he enjoyed their visit on the 18th of December. The blankets were beautiful and well needed. God bless all of you for your caring thought. If they had been the Letcher County Court System with a donation, it would have been put on the front page of the paper instead of in the middle. Thank you. God bless all.
Don’t ask. Don’t tell. Seems like the military has got a pretty big issue. This wasn’t a problem in Biblical times. They’d take them out and they’d all get stoned. How can God bless America? It’s amazing. Think about it.
Happy Valentine’s Day. My birthday, fall picnics, Christmas, New Year’s, our Valentine’s trip to the mountains, eating at our favorite place. These are things I’ll miss to my last breath. I am really sorry you had to do these things with someone you didn’t love. Looking back, I feel so stupid and ashamed I hung around so long when you really wanted me out of your life. However, there is an upside to this. I will never, ever have to share you with anyone else again. You still have to sneak around on Valentine’s Day, but it won’t be on me. So let’s all take a big hoot out of this Mason jar, and sing along with me, ‘Happy Valentine’s Day. Yee haw. Happy Valentine’s Day.’
I wonder why the man on Turkey Creek who was found with all the pot found in his possession hasn’t gone on trial yet. Seems kind of funny to me, doesn’t it you?
Where does all the money for the Kingscreek Fire Department go? If County Judge/Executive Jim Ward look into this and let us know it would be very appreciated.
To all you women out there letting these religious men hug you and call you sissy and tell you how much they love you and pat you on the back and pull up to you and hug you close: They are perverts.
To a man on Bill Moore Branch: Like father like son. Are you so stupid as to think that I don’t know who you are? Do you want to leave on your own or do you need some help?
Hello Dream Lover. Having known you for a while now — it’s been18 months since you really came into my life — you have brought a new happiness to me. There were times I thought it was over, but now I think it will be a long time before I ever think those thoughts again. You make me so happy when I see you, hear your voice, and especially when I get to be in your arms and hold you so tightly in mine. Happiness is what we can make it be with our time together, my darling. You are my Valentine dream come true. I love you. Happy Valentine’s Day. Love, hugs, kisses, your sunshine Valentine always.
Men, remember the woman you love on Valentine’s Day. Show her that you really care for her, that she’s the one you want to be with, or that she rocks your world. Give her that special Valentine gift that shows you care. Touch her heart with your gift of love.
Well, well, well, if we don’t have some real troubadours out there trying to pry into my and Blue’s business. I don’t know who wrote that weak stuff about Blue and was talking all that smack, but this is the Kentucky Ridgerunner with pen in hand now. I can promise you, you are not my woman and I have not even met you, so to set the record straight, Blue is my woman and always has been. You could never take her place, you or anyone else, fools. So take a back seat where you belong, and get off at the next stop. Unless you want some real drama in your life, don’t even think about messing with Blue, because you mess with me. The Kentucky Ridgerunner.
Well people, it’s three more months until the primary election. Marvin Boggs is running for coroner. He’s a neighbor and longtime friend, so I’ll ask all of Big Cowan and others to vote for him, and Hager Trent for magistrate. They’re both honest as the day is long so please consider this? Thank you. Stanley Pack.
Ah, I love politics in Letcher County. Now the big plan comes together. Jim Ward, Archie Banks and Codell Gibson threw out the Republicans along with Governor Fletcher. As with all great victories come the spoils. Ward and Banks ran off all the good water district commissioners so they can handpick their own commissioners to run the water district. Then they name Peewee Back the new grand water commissar. The first thing Grand Commissar Back does is send County Attorney Harold Bolling ‘packin’’ because Bolling won’t kiss his behind and do his evil bidding. It doesn’t matter that Bolling was representing the water district without pay. What next? Peewee hires Jamie Hatton to represent the water board. Then Grand Commissar Back runs off all of the Christian workers because most Christian folks don’t condone wrongdoing like stealing your personnel records and covering up dirty drug screens and buying pickup trucks illegally. Well, let me connect the dots so the people of Letcher County can understand the big plan. Jamie Hatton is the son-in-law of girls’ basketball coach Dickie Adams, who is a brother to Bumper Adams, who is the brother-in-law to Judge Jim Ward. Next thing we hear, Jamie Hatton is running for county attorney. Oh, it doesn’t stop here. Guess who shows up in a picture in The Mountain
newspaper? Why, it’s Jamie Hatton. He gets to promote his political candidacy for county attorney office by sponsoring — you guessed it — a girls’ basketball tournament. Well, how does this happen, such blatant political campaigning at a high school sporting event? Should the taxpayers foot the bill to give a political candidate a platform to promote his or her candidacy for public office? What if I was the other candidate, Bolling? How does this happen? Hey, you win games for Supt. Anna Craft and that bunch of school board members and you can violate all of the rules and get by with their blessing. It’s OK to use schoolchildren for political purposes. As a taxpayer I think it sucks. Well, I got news for you bunch of clowns down there at Whitesburg — you better remember the U.S. Senate race in Massachusetts a few days ago. Anna Craft, will you and that bunch down at the school board allow Gerald Baker, Trey Narramore and Terry Adams to sponsor a baseball tournament at the new million dollar baseball field so they can get their pictures taken giving out a trophy? I’m pretty sure The
will print it as newsworthy.
I would like to thank Paul Newman for cutting the trees out of the road from Thornton to Kona and up on Millstone Creek. He beat the highway department by two days.
Some people to speak your pieces and are unaware of what they are talking about. An example, the comments about William Farley as a reporter. These same people are probably unaware that The Mountain Eagle
is a nationally recognized newspaper, and quite naturally Bill would be a superb reporter. I don’t live in Letcher County. People besides William’s kinfolk appreciated the clarity of the stories he writes. I just waded through his article on the water board situation, something I would have never read had it not been for his excellence in writing.
Wake up, Letcher County, we can’t stand four more years of Bob Lewis. Kenny Spangler is the man for magistrate in District 1. He is not in it for the money, he wants to serve the people.
Wow, that Tea Party convention was huge. Had almost as many attendees as the population of Whitesburg.
