If you were ever my friend, I sure didn’t need any enemies. I’ll tell you that. Friend. Ha, ha, ha, ha.

Thanks for everything, Jamie Hatton. I’m glad you got what you wanted, buddy. You really do deserve it and I know that you will straighten Letcher County out for good.



I am so glad Kevin Mullins got judge. Congratulations, Kevin. I know you’re going to do a great job. One thing I love about you is you don’t drag the cases on forever. You get straight to the point, you sentence them, and you get them out of there. Thank you so much.



I just can’t wait to meet you. It’s been a long time. I’ll meet you.

The man who runs a certain business has drawn Social Security all his life, and the guy that helps him has drawn his for watching his wife. And the girl that works in there with him, well, she’s sort of loose with the men. I think they should look in on that stuff and check in on it and make sure that it’s taken care of.

BP, so you’re drilling a relief well to let the pressure off the other well? Well let’s hope you idiots get this right. It’s kind of like shooting a hole in the bottom of a boat to let the water out. You’re pathetic.

Hello, dream lover. Missing you so badly. Wishing I was in your arms right now holding you so closely. I can feel every heartbeat. If you feel mine, you would find mine beating passionately as you kiss me tenderly and feel it at rest as you hold me tightly in those strong arms. As you look into my eyes it would be as if you were looking into my soul because you know my needs, my hopes and dreams. You know how much I love you; nothing can ever change that and take that away from us but I worry about you, my darling. I want you to be happy, my love. I wish I were the one thing in your life that could bring you that total happiness. But I sometimes wonder if you’ll ever know that again. So I just hope and pray to be able to make you happy as I can with our time together. Hugs and kiss, love your sunshine, always.

I just read about the great vocational school that’s going to be coming in. Yeah, that’s all great, but why don’t you just spend $100,000 and fix the old one? We don’t need everything up on that school hill. And besides, I think you should have started using half of that money this past spring on a girls’ softball field. I guess those boys will be traveling next year to play baseball, won’t they?

Give us a break. Gas is $2.59 in Lexington.

I’d like for somebody to tell me how I could work on my own house and get paid by the city while I’m doing it.

This is to certain people who live in Stinking Branch: It’s a downright dirty shame that you go to a funeral and act so stupid. Why don’t you pick on someone your size? I’m big and fat; pick on me. Try to snap my neck like you said you were going to do to that little girl. You don’t have the guts. The church didn’t like it one bit. Everybody was on her side. Is that why you backed off ? Who are you going to marry in that dress? Well, I tell you the devil himself wouldn’t marry you. You know, it’s a shame you have to go to church to show off . A church is a place of respect, but that you don’t have.

Robert Barefoot’s book ‘Death by Diet’ changed my life six years ago. I saw how calcium does over 200 functions in the body and how Vitamin D and sunshine could reduce and cure a lot of diseases. I saw a lot of women get better from MS and lupus by simply switching from soda, especially diet sodas, to milk. American people deserve to know that every cancer cell is calcium and oxygen defi- cient. Read the story of Dr. Otto Warberg — when he discovered this, his medical license was taken away.

Once again, I’d like to thank The Mountain Eagle
for giving us a forum to speak our opinion and do it anonymously.

Yes, if anyone out there in the surrounding counties of Letcher County has a house, land or trailer and land would be willing to sell on a land contract, would you please call me or respond in next week’s Speak Your Piece? I’d love to have a place on a land contract. I have an ’81 Harley Davidson I would give up as a down payment. Just respond in next week’s Speak Your Piece and we’ll start from there. I just like to thank you.

I’d like to send a message out to somebody. They know who they are and God knows. Ask God to pray for them because their father didn’t have much money to be put away. He’s under hospice and she took his money and claims she lost it. We know she didn’t, but she’s going to have to live with it. God will take care of him. But I’d like to let her know that she’s not forgotten.

Yes, I hear they’re made the children go to school on Memorial Day. In a way that shows disrespect for the county and America and the flag and all it stands for. There are many soldiers who have died for this country; there are many soldiers buried. To me, that’s showing a great disrespect by making people go to school on Memorial Day. Children learn and know what they see and what they’re taught. And if there’s one thing you should teach children, it’s respect. Since I was little, we would go to the graveyard and watch all the soldiers shoot over the graves. Even then I knew there was something really deep, sincere, about that. I just can’t believe that they would do that. They’ll call off school for ball games, for any other thing that’s going on, but they won’t call off school to show respect for the country, the flag and the dead. I think that’s pretty bad. I think that’s extra bad.

On the night before the election, I drove by an abandoned restaurant building and saw the state police arresting a certain public official’s son for drunk driving. Even though this made his third off ense he was back home the same evening. This shows we have no justice in Letcher County. My son was caught for the same thing, but he got 16 months in jail and lost his driver’s license. I will be watching this case closely. One is no better than the other.



Yes, I am 75 years old. I have lived in Letcher County my whole life. This has been the dirtiest election I have ever seen — passing out pills and money for votes, threatening people with cutting their meals off if they didn’t vote for the ‘right’ people. You know who you are and you will pay.

This is a return comment to the person who put in about the loose and wild women at the racetrack: Well, the best thing to do is leave those women. Don’t be sitting around watching the cars go around the dirt track, spending time with loose and wild woman.



This is in response to last week’s comment about the ATV trail dedicated to Roger Breeding at Fishpond Lake not being accessible: It is my understanding that the trail is not open yet but it will be in the near future. Thank you.

To the thief in Blackey: Stay in the house. Keep your blinds closed. You’re being watched very carefully. This is a promise.



Why is it that certain people in Stinking Branch want to keep trouble going? Don’t you have anything else to do? Doesn’t all that money you get from you daughter and her kids satisfy you? It’s a shame you take your own daughter to court just to get control of the grandkids and their money. Don’t you sell enough green beans and potatoes? Don’t you know that cat’s out of the bag all the time? Everybody knows what you do. You’ve never done an honest day’s work in your life and can’t you tell no one wants anything to do with you? You ought to hide and come out once a month.

I had Gary C. Johnson as my attorney. I would like to say that he put my trust back in attorneys. He says the truth about getting what you deserve. Once your body is damaged it is never the same. His staff — Angie, Rhonda and the others — cant’ be beat.

I know it’s going to go in the paper where the teachers are going to be penalized with their Social Security. I, too, am a retired teacher from another state in which I did not have Social Security paid in while I was teaching. But, I have 15 years paid in. I, too, was penalized. I only received about one third of what my Social Security check should have been. They told me if I had retired before 1988 I would have received my full benefits. I feel like I was penalized because I was a teacher.

I am a young, 33-year-old single female, seeking an honest, trustworthy man between the ages of 40 and 45. If you are interested, please respond in next week’s Speak Your Piece.

To the lady complaining about the check drawers: Thank you so much for your hard earned money. From, a check drawer.

No way, absolutely no way, and that is final. Understand?

I was at the hospital Sunday morning with my mom, and I wanted to say I am so sorry for the nurses up there. They had to deal with one female patient who needs to be put in rehab. She argued with the poor nurses up there about her medicine because the doctor would not come and give her medicine to her. I think you need to ship her to rehab, because the rest of the people in there were sick and could not get the attention they need because she was griping about not getting her pain medicine.



When the pharmacy tech tells me about an old man going without food to pay for medicine for his wife I wonder, don’t we really need health care changes? Most people have insurance, but with a co-pay that most people can’t afford. The insurance people and the preachers don’t complain about this because it doesn’t affect them personally. Neither did the news media people either, because they have good insurance, too.

Word is that heat pump warranties are not being honored. Let the buyer beware.

Everyone says you can’t find workers in eastern Kentucky. Some businesses do and some don’t. How come some businesses are hillbillies and some Mexicans? How come the state hires Mexicans to mow grass, and the city of Pikeville hires Pikevillians? Is there a money factor involved?

A certain musician is lying to people about the girlfriend he’s hauling everywhere to play music. We all know he left his wife for her. Everyone loved him and his wife together. They were the perfect couple. He is a fox in a chicken house. Shame on him for leaving his wife. He even makes the band look bad. From his disappointed friend.

I’m writing a complaint about how the Boggs Cemetery at Eolia is being taken care of. I’ve just found out that it hasn’t been mowed for several years, since Elmer Boggs’s sons got disabled. I would really appreciate it if someone who has a loved one buried there would do something about it. I’m not able because I no longer live in Kentucky, but I have a mommy, daddy, and brother and sisters buried there. I was paying someone to take care of it, but I found out they cashed the checks but didn’t do the job. I don’t appreciate being taken advantage of. That’s why I didn’t send a check in May. I’m not going to pay for a job that’s not being done. The daughter of Lee and Lina Boggs.

What is a billion? A billion seconds ago it was 1959. A billion hours ago our ancestors were living in the Stone Age. A billion dollars ago was only 8 hours and 20 minutes at the rate our government is spending it. While the thought is still fresh in our brains, let’s take a look at New Orleans. It’s amazing what you can learn with some simple division. Louisiana Senator Mary Landriere is presently asking Congress for $250 billion to rebuild New Orleans. Interesting number. What does it mean? Well, if you are one of the 484,674 residents of New Orleans (every man, woman and child), you each get $516,528. Or if you have one of the 188,251 homes in New Orleans, your home gets $1,329,787. Or if you are a family of four, your family gets $2,066,012. Washington, D.C.? Hello.

People, please start using your turn signals when you’re driving. Please give us a clue as to where you’re going. I’m trying to be a safe driver and trying to keep up with who’s going where when I’m in traffic — all I want is a clue as to where you’re heading. Good grief.
