Speak Your Piece




Call 633-7508 from 9 am Tuesday to 9 am Friday.

E-m@il address

In addition to the telephone and the U.S. Mail, The Mountain Eagle accepts comments to Speak Your Piece by electronic mail. Our address is: mtneagle@bellsouth.net

I am going to get myself into the Guinness Book of World Records by making the longest call ever made to Speak to Your Piece. In order to do this I am going to say this over and over 1,000 times. So here goes. ‘This over and over 1,000 times.’ That should do it. The M.P. has spoken. Thank you very much.

I feel personally that God loves Satan more than he does me. Genesis 6:2 says where the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair and they came down and they took under themselves wives. The Lord ought not done that to us old wicked people. We’re wicked and I will admit it. There’s a whole lot of us pretty good old boys and pretty good old gals. Let’s put the gals in there because they are good, too. Later.

You made your name when you were young with your best friend, so live with it.

Hey Ridge Rider. What happened? Haven’t seen you on the roads lately. Did your wife find out about your trip to the lake? Boohoo.

I’m a person that has lived in Letcher County for almost 60 years. A few days ago I picked up a Mountain
Eagle
and sat on a piece of equipment I was running and read an editorial that was about the smartest thing I have ever seen. We live in a county that is the tail end of nothing. We don’t have anything and The Mountain Eagle
is endorsing a candidate for office that doesn’t seem to have much sense to me and is talking about what a lowlife Rand Paul is. What we need is more of what we’ve got in Letcher County — little sick young ones on drugs that look like Decon rats and bums running around on four-wheelers that aren’t working and will never work. The endorsement from The Mountain
Eagle
has always been for some left wing idiot that nobody in the world with good sense would have ever voted for. If you got behind a mule and read that little editorial about Rand Paul, it would try its best kick your brains out. Coal is the only thing we have ever had in eastern Kentucky and now when you see people going deer hunting, elk hunting, any other kind of hunting, four-wheeler riding, and any kind of recreation or building any kind of building, it is on reclaimed strip jobs. And all we ever hear from The Mountain Eagle
is more of the old welfare problems that cost us a generation of children and it goes right on and on. Surely to God the people in Letcher County ain’t stupid enough to vote for another candidate like they are endorsing. And I thank you very much.

I want to make a complaint. You can’t came into city hall and pay your bills without getting cut and wet and nasty with that old grass that hangs over. You can’t get around it. Something should be done.



We’ve wondered why a certain woman here in Whitesburg lies about everything. She drives a red car. Everybody knows who she is.



I’m calling about the person that went to the emergency room with a toothache. I am a registered nurse and I want to respond. Once you are an addict and it is in your chart, there is no doctor anywhere who will prescribe any narcotics because their license would be on the line. It wouldn’t matter where you go, if it is in your chart they won’t write a prescription for any narcotics. You don’t have to have a prescription for Tylenol. You can buy it at any Dollar Store or any grocery store. The best thing you can get for a toothache is Orajel and you don’t need a prescription for it.



This is to the blonde chick at admissions at Whitesburg ARH: I was just wondering if you had the phone number for Pikeville Methodist.



You know the Bible says it is better to give than to receive. That’s the reason I gave that Freewill Baptist preacher my wife. Be happy.



Concerning the road up the mountain to Virginia where those people got killed, why don’t they have signs there that say ‘wrong way’? If this road was in Chicago or Louisville or Lexington or Winchester they would have had them.



Come on, people. You have got to be kidding me. Someone honestly thinks putting up stoplights on a four-lane is going to stop a guy driving on the wrong side of the road. You have got to be kidding me.



A guy singing at the park during Jenkins Days that made the comment ‘we are not here to draw attention to ourselves’ is full of it. Every time you all sing that, all you all do is draw attention to yourself. That is all you all think about.



If the 70-year-old man still wants to meet the 70-year-old woman on Brass Drive, call me at 216-1860 after 8 p.m. I’ll be home.



I just read the comment about the accident up on Pine Mountain. If you can’t figure out how to drive that road, keep your behind at the house. The only reason that wreck happened and that poor, innocent John died, was because that stupid, drug-infested Michael wanted to hurt his little girlfriend. If the court system here would had gotten off their behinds and done something the first time, he would have never been behind the wheel. He would have still been in prison.



I know my opinion doesn’t count for much, but I think this year’s Isom Days festival was a lot different than in the past. I liked it better the old way before the carnival got there because they even had the funnel cakes. I think it is now too commercialized and isn’t as old-fashioned as it used to be. I didn’t see a lot of the older people like I used to see and there wasn’t hardly anybody there selling anything. It was all carnival. I don’t like that. It was better the old-fashioned way. The rodeo was great. I liked that. The old-fashioned way may not be as exciting for the younger people, but it is better and more down to earth. It just wasn’t the same this year and I just didn’t really like it at all. I would rather see the vendors and the little churches selling stuff. It’s just not the same.

I was reading The Mountain

Eagle
today. It’s a paper that is a couple of weeks old. I was reading in Speak Your Piece and I was wondering where is everybody? Why isn’t everybody in there making fun of everybody? It’s amazing. You think they must be taking a rest for a while. Something’s got to perk them up. I think the Internet with all of that old Facebook crap where they write all that garbage about everybody is about to take the place of Speak Your Piece. They get in there and tell about what their neighbors are doing. I can’t believe people are actually enjoying that and are getting fulfillment in their lives with that trash. And for things that are in Speak Your Piece, they aren’t halfway happy. I can’t help but wonder why. That is all a person has to do is run down other people and a lot of it is just slander, stuff they have made up with no truth at all to it. I don’t understand how anybody can be that unhappy and that jealous to say that kind of stuff to people. Looks to me like they shouldn’t put them down worse than the shape they are already in. If I can’t say anything good about some people, I wouldn’t say anything at all.



What is the county judge going to do about these people, some I know owing thousands of dollars, some as much as $4,000? I pay my garbage bill and I would like to see them be made to pay theirs and not give any amnesty. Because if that is so, I will quit paying mine and see if they can give that to me, too.



This is to the one that puts their two-cents worth in at the end of each comment: Supposedly we have a place here to speak our piece. What are you waiting on, someone to get hurt or killed just so we can have a used car lot that is sticking out in the road?



I hope the clothes that you stole out of my house give you a good rash. You know better than that. I thought you would have more sense than to steal someone’s clothes. I feel sorry for you. You need to get down on your knees and start praying.



This is concerning the picture of a certain girl: Half of her family didn’t attend her birthday because her mother’s side of her family is excluded from her. He won’t let us see or talk to her.



When I got off work Tuesday I went down to a certain restaurant. I believe that is the dirtiest place I have ever seen. Outside and where you go in the door, it was pitiful. I don’t know who they have cleaning up there, but they are doing a bad job. There was food on the ground where it had been thrown out of cars. It was awful and I have never seen it that dirty before. Get somebody that can clean up there.



I’m calling about the person that called in about how they were treated at the emergency room at the Whitesburg hospital: It’s not just the doctors, it’s the nurses, too. If you take a look around, 90 percent of them are sitting down. You’ve only got a couple that are up running around. And if you look, those are the skinny ones. The others are either talking on their personal phones or they are gossiping behind other people’s backs. I think it is ridiculous. I think whoever takes care of that department needs to sit down and have a long talk with those nurses and bring the good ones back and get rid of the ones that just sit there and do absolutely nothing. You can tell who they are. Just look at the size of them in their white uniforms.

(Based on our experiences

at the Whitesburg
hospital, we think the nurses
there are great.)



This is to the guy on Loves Branch: You always said nobody would break us up no matter what. You told me you loved me. I believed you and I still do love you. Please leave her. She is nothing but trouble. She is going to get you killed. She almost got you killed the other day. I’ll be back with you. Love you.



I know that you went out on me when we were married. My grandson told me all about it. And you will never live on this side of the mountain. We will never be friends anymore. We will be enemies.



This is to the mountain couple: Apparently you are waiting for the mother ship to come. If you don’t want people and friends and neighbors to come and worship with you and you try to teach them something like any Christian should do, you are in deep trouble. Good luck.



Archie Banks, you got exactly three more months until January and you’ll be back delivering pizza like you did before and I am glad.



I’d like to speak my piece about the three stooges. I thought the three stooges were dead, but I was watching the Letcher County government channel the other night and I saw them. I saw Larry, Curly and Moe — Jim Ward, Archie Banks and Eddie Meade.



Seven men and everybody knows.



Those vicious attack dogs, I am going to tranquilize one by one where that teddy bear is in the house is up here on Indian Creek. Some people still call it Injun Creek. But at any rate, last week’s Speak Your Piece said Ingram. Well, we’re not talking Ingram, we’re talking about the vicious dogs that are up here on Indian Creek. Those are the ones I am going to tranquilize one by one. No more talk. No more warnings. Lock and load. Action time, baby. Ready, aim, fire one, fire two, fire three, fire four and fire five if necessary. And I’m not kidding, baby. We start now.



I lost a set of keys. If anyone has found a set of keys anywhere in Letcher County, mainly Whitesburg, Neon or Jenkins, please call 832-9034.



You know what grinds my gears? People cutting line at restaurants saying, ‘I called in.’ Wait your turn. I also hate root canal work, delays caused by roadwork, tailgaters, speeders, and calling it the ‘Cougar Information Station’ when there are Cavaliers in the county too, which is why I don’t listen to that radio station.



Well now, it’s September and I’m wanting to wish a bunch of people a happy birthday, starting with Phyllis Mullins up at Neon, Maudie Pack on Big Cowan, Kenny Pack, our brother, Elijah Trent our niece Kathy’s son, Edra Mae Pack, sister. One anniversary, Sept. 30, Lonnie Pack and Debra, his wife. Several more family birthdays have already passed this month. That’s all. Please print this? Thank you, Stanley Pack.



I’d like to say hello to Rat Pack on Craft’s Colly. You three amigos look real funny. An old man going bald with a ponytail, a/k/a Ponytail. A woman as big around as she is tall, a/k/a Fat Cow. Then there’s just Baldy. I’d like to say thanks for sticking me at the famous hotel called the L.C.J., but look whose life is going downhill. Ponytail is lonely because his old lady left him. Baldy, your wife’s not with me while you’re at work because I’m here. But you don’t know who she’s with now. At least I told you. As for Fat Cow, she just grows scabbier every day living with the dogs. Sincerely, R.A.

In response to the article about Walmart in last week’s paper: Yes, it is true, they have hired lots of people for the remodel, and yes they are getting 40 hours a week, and yes, you heard right, they have cut the hours of the longtime, faithful, loyal workers. I asked for myself to be sure this was true. Some of the longtime, full-time workers are getting some four-hour shifts. ‘Save money, live better,’ yeah, right. Walmart is saving money and the remodel crew is living better. Shame on you, Walmart. This store definitely needed a remodel, but not at the expense of these loyal workers.

The coal companies are destroying eastern Kentucky and West Virginia with this mountaintop mining. No one is against coal mining. I worked 30 years in mining underground. This mountaintop mining is not coal mining. This is destroying our water and land. That these coal companies are suing the EPA is a disgrace. We weaklings are letting this happen for a few jobs. When the coal is gone, we will be a wasteland. The coal companies are using Friends of Coal so they can keep destroying the land with this strip mining.

What’s going on in the Haymond area? It’s about a man, a woman, a teenage girl, and a guy in a truck. The man lives in the house that the guy in the truck pays for. The woman uses the man in the truck to get what she wants. The man sleeps in the bed with the woman that the guy in the truck pays for. The woman ran the guy in the truck off twice, but he still pays for the man’s furniture and house. Is the guy in the truck that stupid? Is he being blackmailed into paying for the house, furniture and phone bill, or is he just that stupid? Everyone wants to know the answer to this question. To beat all, a month after the woman ran the guy in the truck off again for the other man, who had to be away, she ran off on vacation with truck guy and still goes out at night sometimes to see him.
