How many of us on Sunday morning had our power off? The way our electric power goes on and off so much it would pay all of us to get in touch with the Whitesburg Lion’s Club. They have a survival package they are taking chances on and it includes a big generator, a heater, a twoburner hot plate, a weather radio and a whole lot more all for one ticket. I think it would do us good to see what’s going on with that and help them out, too.
I was just calling to say it is a shame that bootlegging is going around the old Neon High School with underage kids.
I’m calling in regard to an article in your paper last week. It says that Mr. Richardson was taken advantage of by Mr. Hall. I don’t think Mr. Richardson was being taken advantage of while he was at the casino with eating steak dinners and staying with Mr. Hall for weeks at a time. He also lived in Mr. Hall’s house for two years before he went to jail. His family is still living there rent-free and they have been for a long time.
It looks like Joe Hall stimulated the economy in Letcher County and put everybody to work selling his OxyContin.
It’s a shame that you keep somebody up with cigarettes, food and everything else for two months out of the goodness of your heart, only to have them sell their food stamps. And even though you are good enough not to report them for selling their stamps, they go behind your back whenever you ask them to leave and have your water cut off .
Guess now I see what happens when a facelift gets paid for with drug money. The federal government seizes it and puts it in prison.
So that everyone is clear on who this is, I am Karen Roberts. I live at the head of No. 3 Hollow. I am telling you thieves now that next time you get into my garage you will find it full of copperheads. I doubledog dare you, big boys. I am not scared of you. I am Jim Roberts’s daughter and I am going to act like Jim Roberts now. You all are done for. You will both be back in prison before it is over. I know where you are at all times. I’ve got people who tell me. They love to tell on you two. You are going to be back in prison, one of you at Red Onion and one of you at LaGrange. One of you has already stolen my lawn mower. I know you were in on it with the other guy, too. Kentucky law states that if I see you on my property and I fear for my life, as I do when it comes to you two idiots, I can shoot you in self-defense. I am a sharpshooter and I am an expert marksman. I am warning you — do not mess with me anymore. Give me the time to get out of town. I’ve sold my property, because I want away from all of you idiots. I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired. So beware of the gator girl.
You have a real family heritage. Every one of them has been in the pen. If you keep on, you are going to have a record just like them.
To the people who are complaining about child support: If you breed them, feed them.
I live on Bill Moore Branch. Somebody has stolen my pills, pills legally prescribed by a doctor. But be that as it may, I have caught myself a copperhead. It is tied by the tail and is in one of the doors in my house. So anybody that wants to come back and get some more pills, come on. Old sneaky snake will be waiting on you and you will dash out of here and go to the doctor immediately. And I will know who you are. I know who you are anyway.
If you don’t back off and leave me alone, everybody at work is going to know just how crazy you are.
You are the only woman that I ever loved and you divorced me, so I guess you didn’t love me. I will never have another woman.
To the lady whiner: Be careful about burning bridges. You never know when you may need to walk over that bridge.
To the lying ex-wife who won’t answer my calls: Why don’t you call? Remember when you said in Speak Your Piece that you weren’t going to marry your boyfriend because you were waiting on your ex-husband or someone like him? The truth is, tramp, he doesn’t want you. He’s got better and you know it.
I’m from Letcher County and I would appreciate it if someone would keep their dogs tied up. I am sick and tired of this. The next time I am going to sue someone, so you better keep your animals tied up.
This is Alf. Just wondering whatever happened to the man they called ‘Wild Bill’.
This is to the idiot that put in Speak Your Piece about Homer Rose and Wayne Rose: Let me tell you something; it’s your children’s problems. You need to deal with it. Don’t blame everyone else. They didn’t hold them down and throw pills down their neck.
This is to the lady who tells others to stay away from her boyfriend at McRoberts, Neon and Hemphill: If you can’t hold your men, baby, we will.
You are the sunshine of my life and I love you with all of my heart. And you are my angel.
I would like to say something to my brother. I’d like to tell him it is time to get back, turn around, get back, sit down and get started on your book. Love you, snake.
Which one do you love the most, me or my brother? If it is the brother, take him.
I want to speak my piece about a comment in last week’s Mountain Eagle. To the woman who wished her husband a happy 10-year anniversary: Well, if it was the happiest 10 years of your life, why are you always talking about him to people? And it’s not good stuff that you say about him either, even wanting to leave him and everything else. I just don’t understand how you can be so happy but treat him this way.
I called Speak Your Piece twice to try to get a birthday wish in the paper for my mother. It has not been in for the last two weeks. I want it to say it is the paper’s fault it wasn’t in there yet, and that I do wish her a happy birthday. I have not forgotten her and wish her many more. Love you, Mom. From your daughter. Thank you.
I was just wondering how a person could get up in the morning, look in the mirror and know for a fact they are extra heavy duty overweight. What kind of person would think they could look at themselves and know they have eight inches of flab hanging over their shorts and have on a pair of short shorts and a big wide belt and a skimpy little shirt and big humongous sunglasses and think that is pretty? How can a person weigh 340 pounds and I want to dress like they are 16 years old and I weigh a size 10? I don’t understand that. I know obesity is a horrifying problem in America today and they are looking for the answer to the problem. The answer is what you eat is what you are — fast food. Until we change our eating habits there is not going to be any hope for anyone that continues to eat fast food. And to beat it all, once you quit that kind of food, you don’t miss it that much. Healthy food tastes better. It is better for you and you won’t have to eat as often. Anyway, lady, I hope you find a diet plan that works for you. Somehow, when I looked at you I knew you didn’t feel good about yourself.
Hey lady. The anointed one and his queen don’t have any children. She doesn’t have any and he threw his children away. Since you have a lapse in memory, you need to remember my grandchildren will never have to face an attack alone. You need to remember that.
This is from the ex-wife making the comment to the married 50-something: You say I am in my 40s, that I am ugly and can’t get anyone, and that I want my ex back. Well, you got the 40 half right, but it is 43. No, I don’t want your little old man back, because as far as I am concerned I’ve got one and one on the side. And take my advice: If you would clean yourself up and look in the mirror you might get a shock. If you would cut that nappy hair and clean yourself up and get a little color to yourself, you wouldn’t have to worry about your little man cheating on you.
This is to my ex-husband: Honey, anytime you want to come home you are more than welcome to come home. The door is always open. I’m sure you still have the house key to the front door because I gave it to you not long ago. Whenever you think you want to come home, I don’t have any problem with it. You know how to walk through the front door.
I found a dog in the Dry Fork area. The number to contact me is 632-0268.
Hey, hot shot. Did you get the message? I sure hope so.
I would like to wish Sheila Renee Collins a happy birthday on July 17.
People, did you see where Sen. Mitch McConnell is wanting to drop minimum wage back to $2.13 an hour. I want all of you to remember that come next election.
I would like to know where the state police are when you are run off the road every time somebody decides to pass you. And if you don’t get out of their way fast enough they are just going to run you right off the road. It happened to me yesterday. Something has to be done to these stupid drivers who think they own the road.
From the boy from Whitco: I do have a license and I do have insurance. I take my medicine the way I’m supposed to. You know who I am; I know who you are. Come and knock on my door if you’re not too weakhearted.
To my ex-wife: You lying piece of trash. I never wanted you back and I never will. My children know I don’t want anything to do with you. I don’t even want to be around you. Everybody knows that. You ever come around me I’ll tell you off to your face.
This is to the woman who said to ask my husband who he slept with right after he married me: Why don’t you be woman enough to come to me and say that? My husband says he’d love to know who he was supposed to have been sleeping with. Come forward and stop hiding behind everyone, including your children. Nobody will harm you.
To the ex-wife: I assure you, I am woman enough to talk to you. You won’t talk to me. I have talked to you and you lie out of everything. That’s what your problem is, your ex-husband never wanted you back, you wanted him back and you still do. Your own children and everybody knows it’s the truth. You’re the one who’s unhappy and can’t go on with your life. You started this long ago. You can’t hand the truth. He doesn’t want you. Get professional help to deal with it, and get over it.
I am very sorry I ever voted for the mayor in Jenkins. I had him as a teacher in high school and I truly thought he would do a wonderful job with our town. Our water bill has only risen since Pud Schubert has been out of office. I have lived in Lexington, Louisville, Pikeville, Elkhorn City and in Florida, and I have never known of a city having water anywhere nearly as high as it is in Jenkins. I realize it is a small town and we have to pay higher for water and taxes for the town to survive, but I also realize that if the mayor would spend less of our money paying the police force to have two on duty at the same time in a town that doesn’t have 3,000 people, then the city would have more money and our bills wouldn’t be so high. The Jenkins City Police harass people that have lived in this town their entire lives, and have people afraid to drive through the town they grew up in. The water stays off all the time in Jenkins. They say it’s because our pipes are old, but for the taxes and water bills we pay in this town, the water pipes should be made of gold. And this is a small, quiet town. The police have the younger people afraid to sneeze. If I remember correctly, the last time there was a murder here, some of our police were responsible. Something desperately needs to be done in Jenkins. I think it’s a shame.
To the person who was talking to his angel and saying how much he loves her: Give a hint of who you might be or who you are talking to, where you are from or something. Just would like to know who this might be. Angel.
A certain car dealer needs to quit lying to folks and be honest about what they’re selling. That place is stealing people’s money.
The Fox Network is pro dirty water, pro dirty air, pro dirty news, and pro dirty politics. The whole mess in the Gulf is BP’s fault. They screwed up, now the Republicans want the federal government to pay for the cleanup. Whatever happened to freedom of private enterprise to pay for their own problems?
Rand Paul and the Republicans want to raise the age for Social Security to 72. Rand Paul’s dad voted to raise the age of Social Security to 67. Their theory is they want to raise the age so people won’t live long enough to collect it.
