This goes to all the women at Neon and Hemphill: You all better stay away from my man.

I was calling in reference to the comment that was left in Speak Your Piece this week by Rosemary Mc- Clain. I really like that you guys printed it. You know you make sure that you don’t miss those outstanding citizen comments from Letcher County that are now doing life. It might as well be life in prison to people like me. My comments are hardly ever in the paper. But I just wanted to say thanks and that is really sweet that you guys to make sure you put that comment in there. Well, maybe someday she will be out real soon and she can behead somebody else on the trail. Thanks and you guys have a great day, because I’m sure this won’t be printed. Thanks.

If you’re having trouble with black bears destroying your property, there’s a new law, SB 64, which takes effect on July 15. A new section of KRS 150 permits people, even during bow season, “to carry a firearm and ammunition for that firearm for purposes of self-defense and defense of others while hunting, fishing, trapping, or engaging in any other activity not constituting a crime under KRS Chapter 218A or Chapters 500 to 534, and may do so on any public lands under the control of the department and on any private land under the control of the department, unless the owner of the private land has posted notice that concealed deadly weapons are not allowed in a building where they may be prohibited pursuant to KRS 237.110 or 237.115. A person may use a firearm, if he or she is not prohibited by state or federal law from possessing a firearm, or may use any other deadly weapon, at any time and during any season to: 1. Kill or attempt to kill an animal, whether protected or unprotected, in self-defense or defense of another person; or 2. Kill or attempt to kill an injured animal for humane purposes. (b) An arrest shall not be made, except upon a warrant issued by a judge of a court of competent jurisdiction, and a citation shall not be issued by a peace officer if an animal is killed under circumstances described in paragraph (a) of this subsection.” You will now have a right to protect yourself under this new SB 64. Thank you.

The only person I have cheated on was you and it was well worth it.



To the old, ugly ex-wife: No, my husband never cheated on me. You’re just mad because he did cheat on you when he was married to you and you are the one that would be shocked to know who it was. But you are too stupid to know it. And by the way, I am not 50, ignorant.



There needs to be more soap in these car washes to wash your car. We are paying for it. I wonder if Speak Your Piece will print this.



You stole my chainsaw chain out of my garage. You know who you are. You came back and stole my pain killing medicine on Saturday, July 4. You know who you are. I know who you are. I would just rather you never come back around me.



To the lady that calls in every week or makes a comment about her husband, that his ex-wife wants him back: I don’t want him back. I could have had him back way before he married you and I could have had him way after he married you. But why would I want him after he married you? I didn’t want him in the first place and I don’t want him now. So you are stuck with him. Leave me alone. Get along with your life. If you’re not happy, that is not my problem, that’s yours. So quit putting things in Speak Your Piece about me because apparently you are not woman enough to come to my face and talk about it. When you think you are woman enough to talk about it, you know who I am and where I live.



I’m calling because I am 86 years old and I am taking care of a 108-yearold woman and somebody keeps calling my phone at night and letting it ring. My phone is tapped. I will find out who you are and your behind will go to jail.



I read Terry Braddock’s letter to the editor. Thanks for standing up for the citizens of Jenkins, Mr. Braddock. If you will run for mayor I will vote for you and I will campaign for you.



Before you call somebody fat, you better look in the mirror. You look like the donut king.



You’ve got your boyfriend manipulated into believing that you care for him and that you are a Christian lady. If he really knew what you really were and what you were up to, he would kick you right in the road where you really belong.



This is the 33-year-old. I’d like to reply. I have one child. I have green eyes, brown hair. I’m 5’4 and I’m about 150 lbs. I love hiking and camping. I just like to get out. If you would want to meet me somewhere, just let me know in next week’s Speak Your Piece.



I’m one of those hardheaded Democrats and I’m just wondering whatever happened to the Republican Party and their message of ‘drill, baby, drill.’ Why are they so quiet about it now? The Republicans are behind all that has gone wrong in the Gulf. The Haliburton bunch and the oil people down that way are lying to everybody. It is time for whoever is in charge of overseeing them to step up and take the punishment.



Hey lying niece. You are telling people we threw you out of Mamaw’s house. That is a big lie. You and the Knott County idiot both know that. So does everybody else. You were supposed to be staying there to take care of your handicapped niece but you had her put in a nursing home and you hooked up with a man from the head of the Kentucky River better known as Purty Boy and were shacking up with him. You’re still shacking up with him and you have shacked up with him all during the summer and winter. You had the opportunity to move back but you declined. So you and that Knott County idiot, stop lying.

I am calling as a concerned parent of three kids. Two of them, a three-yearold and a four-year-old, are eligible for preschool and were denied, the reason being not enough room. Sadly, this is at our Arlie Boggs Elementary School, which is still part of Letcher County’s school system but has been outcast because of enrollment numbers. Anna Craft claims it costs too much to keep a school open that doesn’t have a lot of kids. But how can we raise the enrollment numbers if they won’t accept any more kids? There isn’t a teacher for preschool but we were promised that if there were enough children to register we could get a teacher. I know of over 20 preschoolers who registered. A lot were denied. Why? Mr. Scott Teague, director of special education, you need to answer some questions. Or is this just a way of closing our school down thinking parents are not going to speak up? If you have a preschooler that has been denied, call the school board at 633-4455. I’m a longtime resident of Eolia and will remain here for a long time. I want my kids enrolled in Arlie Boggs Elementary. Parents, unite together and save our school and our preschool program. We are a community and a family. Let’s stick together and win this battle. Thank you very much.

Hey, Red. Your trip to Pennsylvania and New York wasn’t anything like you thought, was it?



A big thanks to the Isom Days Committee for the beautiful fireworks. Kudos to Jerry Banks for doing a great job shooting them.



I’m that good Christian man a Christian lady was looking for. I live on Flat Gap Road, Highway 932, and I live up on a hill. I own my own home and my daughter lives out from me. I’m a good Christian man. Meet me somewhere. I am a Christian man and I know you will already love me because we have loved each other before. And I’ll make you a real good Christian man. I know I would. And I have worked real hard to do anything you wanted me to do. I love you.



Way to go, 92-year-old from Goose Creek. It’s time that someone is not afraid to stand up. It’s seems as though you are making some of the county officials a little mad. Most of them will spend their time telling you why they can’t get things done instead of spending their time telling you this is how I can get it done. You should be the county executive. Let’s see who has the guts at the next fiscal court meeting to have you appointed as the county executive or the county advisor.



It takes a retarded redneck to scratch someone’s picture. I know who did it. If you’ve got anything to say to me, give me a call. I’m willing to talk. Bye.



Hang in there, blondie. As long as you have peace of mind being blonde, so be it. When you get up in age and your family’s gone and you have lost your companion, don’t sit at home and grieve or be depressed. Wake up and get out. Be sharp. Be as keen as one of those old Kentucky briars.



To the person that is the boss of the lady cop at Jenkins: I guess you talked to her, because she has been doing better.



It is nice that they finally got the guilty pleas in the federal pill case, but they need to digger further. Thanks to Wayne Rose and Homer Rose, many people that have distress in their families because of the OxyContin they provided. I know Wayne Rose says he is sick, and by doctors’ reports he is. But what about the families they destroyed by supplying these pills to them? Thank you.



Hey, Jim Cornett. Keep putting those stories in that paper. People love you, man.



I would like to wish my husband, Jonathan Adams, a very happy anniversary July 19, 10 years together. It has been the best 10 years of my life.



I think all the women around Letcher County ought to be leery about an old man that drives a red pickup truck. First he will act nice. Then he will stalk you and try to force his way into his house. I know this for a fact because a family member had to bite his fingers to get him out of her home. So just watch out for him. Thank you.



Don’t just film these people, get their tag numbers. I’ve been through this myself. You need to get their tag numbers and give them to the state police. They won’t bother you anymore. I guarantee it.



I once knew a biker to Georgia he went; to see his drug-dealing buddy where his money he spent; now the drug-dealer’s daughter is in one hell of a shape; it got this Mayking biker convicted of rape; all the pills he still wants to take: which makes his religion seem kind of fake; so I’ll now ask the Lord to have mercy on him, his religion and his snake. P.S. Next time you need a carton of cigarettes try buying them instead of stealing them. The crap house bandit poet.



If you want to hear the truth, just ask Judge/Executive Jim Ward and County Clerk Winston Meade and you will hear it all. Just remember that. If you want to hear a lot of lies, just ask Deputy Judge/Executive Eddie Meade. He sure can whip them out.



I’m sitting here today watching a thing on Big Foot. Well, whoopty doo. These people that believe in Big Foot, they can almost show you something. They can almost tell you something. Anything that is a half truth is a whole lie so anyone that wants to believe that, go for it.



People, we can put a man on the moon but we can’t put an oil well plug in the ocean. We can send rockets to Mars but can’t plug a hole in the ocean. I voted for George Bush, which I regret. I voted for Obama, which I regret. It’s a political thing. People, they can cut that off as easy as you can cut the hot water off in your sink. It’s a political thing.



Moments and memories for the year 1968 and 1969 at Whitesburg High School were Stuart Reynolds, Mr. Freshman, and Pamela Vance Moncrief Spangler, Miss Freshman. Those memories still live on. We could never forget you two. What a great year.



I wish you would learn by now that he has always loved me, even when our children were small, he never gave up. Our children are grown up and married now so we are married. He loves me and always has. So please get a life. We both love each other. You should know that by now. Maybe you need to see a psychiatrist, that would help you. Please get a life.



This is to the man that drives the big, blue Harley on Linefork: Baby, give me a call anytime you want to.



I want to wish Derek Hall a happy birthday on July 15.

Don’t you just love it when a writer takes bits and pieces of what someone says and uses them for his or her own agenda to create discourse? Well, let’s look at some of the real facts. Obama wants to give amnesty to millions of illegal aliens. He says, ‘There might be an Einstein or an Andrew Carnegie among them.’ My question is, if there were, why haven’t they done this in their country of origin and made their own country great? Let’s face it, the honest ones wait in line for their visa. The rest break the law by coming here illegally, and have no qualms about breaking the law after they get here. Recently, in California, an illegal was released from jail. The next day he shot and killed a 17-year-old black boy. The 17-year-old was walking home, only three doors away. He was an honor student and an athlete. But you didn’t hear a word from Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton. Of course not. It was not high profile, and no money was involved.



To the habitual liar: Why would you think anybody would believe you’re not making these comments in here, when everyone knows you’ve made comments pretending to be someone else? You need to not bring God into your ungodliness, saying this trash in here. Then you make a comment about love and forgiveness. I wouldn’t be in your shoes on Judgment Day, Miss Pathetic Liar.



To the idiot talking about the 50-year-old hag: If you are talking about me, I am not 50 years old. You shouldn’t talk about someone’s age, your age falls shortly behind me. You’re no spring chicken, either. You say my husband cheated on me after we were married. You are a liar. You say you’re not her. You are a liar. If you’re not, I’m sure it’s close family. It’s been nothing but lies since I’ve been with him. He and everybody else know that’s true. When you were married to him it would surprise you what he did. I guess what you don’t know won’t hurt you.



So, what’s the problem, preacher? I read in my Bible, Matthew 28:19: Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. And that’s good enough for me, and for God.



To the old, ugly ex-wife: Is it true you are a bisexual? I don’t think your associates would lie on you. This is 2010. You really are a piece of trash. I guess you tell lies on other people so the spotlight won’t be shown on your own filthy life. You’re old, up in your 40s, hag.



I understand that we are in the age of budget cuts, and that unnecessary public projects should be cut out. How is it, then, we can afford signs on every bridge as a token of every wayfayer politician when most of them provided an aroma. It would have been more appropriate to put their name on a sewer plant.



The child has grown. The dream is gone. And now, thanks to my MCHC doctor, I have become comfortably numb.



I just wanted to wish the best of luck to Frieda and Tom Nelson from Knoxville, Tenn., for all the heartache and pain they have suffered over the past couple of years. Good luck in a couple of weeks. Hope all goes well for you. You are definitely in all of our prayers.



What does Ashley Judd running around naked have to do with anything? I don’t understand the coal debate, but putting up a picture of naked women in public is uncouth. Why didn’t they just call her a slut and get it over with like the rest of the rednecks would do?
