Speak Your Piece



This goes to the man that made a comment in last week’s paper about how much he loves his wife: If you love her so much, why were you seen with a skanky woman at Save-ALot on Nov. 1? And I think you are making her look like a fool when she was a great wife and mother to your children.

Are all these campaigners going to leave their nasty little trashy signs up along the sides of roads? I’m just wondering if they’ll get fined if they don’t clean up their mess. Anybody else would if they left their garbage lying out.

I would just like to say that I am so glad that Jim Ward got re-elected. When he first ran for county judge I thought he wouldn’t do anything for us but sit on his tail like a few others have done, but now I don’t know how anyone could vote for anyone but him. When I look at the new recreation center they are building there in town I am so glad these children will have somewhere to go. And tell me, who else tried to put in horse trails, ATV trails and campgrounds in this county? He actually has enough insight to see what brings people here. The more business and recreation you have, the better your community is. As far as I am concerned I am going to vote to re-elect him until he stops running. As long as he keeps helping this county with the diff erent things he is doing, he will have my vote forever. I have worried about that old A&P building just sitting there and now our kids have hope because they have somewhere to go. Thank you, Mr. Ward, for doing such a good job. And I am so glad you took interest in our town, children and people. No one else did or even tried.

This is in regard to the one that took this man down to Hazard the other day in a cop car and wouldn’t let him out to use the bathroom: You made him use the bathroom in the car. I think that was awful dirty. You might have some good cops out there, but you’ve got some that are awful dirty out there, too.



Isn’t it so sad to see these devils or so-called troublemaking tramps? Seems they’ll breeze through life then they’ll die at an old age. And then these good people have to struggle and then they die at a young age. I guess it applies to good people. Life is a bitch and then you die.

It sure would be nice if the Letcher County School Board actually addressed the problem with parents smoking on school grounds. When are they going to take care of this nasty problem?



Foggy, you may have burned our house, but our home still stands and shall be rebuilt on a foundation of rock unlike yours, which is reroofed and being remodeled. Sincerely, the troublemakers.



Congratulations to Martha Jane Potter Elementary School’s new principal. Everyone says you are a big improvement over last year. Keep up the good work. Thank you for being nice to the children. That is most important.



I can’t believe Letcher County has voted in Kevin Mullins as district judge …



Jail is jail. It’s not supposed to be a hotel. You do the redneck driving and drugs, you pay and you still pay.



God bless all the veterans that served our country and all the Army people and what they are doing today.

I really don’t think people will take advice from a child molester. Is that short enough?

Attention Letcher County School Board: All children need a recess each day. If you would concentrate on letting them have a recess and not just test scores, the test scores will go up. Do your own research. Many studies show this to be true and it is healthy for our children. You worry about their weight. Lots of them don’t want to give them pop. Okay, give them milk. If they don’t get outside to get sunshine the body cannot produce vitamin D properly. Go figure. You need to do some research.

To the drug dealer on Campbranch that drives a white vehicle: You better watch your back, because you are going to go down.



You get time off for good behavior. How about that?

I’ve been living in Letcher County most of my life. I have been to a lot of different churches. The First Baptist Church of Whitesburg is the first one I know of to go totally political. They had their preachers out campaigning for a man they clearly know declared bankruptcy. I think that is a shame for a church to do that and I think that is a black eye on First Baptist for doing such a thing.

Hey, M.P. Could you repeat that?

I have another shocking discovery about the nursing home in Cumberland. My friend and I went to visit his mother on the north side of the nursing home. She said she had been ringing her call bell for 45 minutes and it was around 1:30 p.m. in the afternoon. She was soaking wet from her head to her feet. So he went out and got the charge nurse and it took another 35 minutes for a nurse aid to get in there and change her. Could someone please tell me what he should do? Should he put her in another nursing home or get her out of there? This is about the fifth time this has happened. Does this happen at all nursing homes?

Right now wou ld be a real good time for the people that are tearing up the streets in Jenkins to take up most of those flowerboxes that we don’t need. It is already like going through a maze to find a place to park.

I have been robbed. I am missing several Franklin Mint coin collections. I am missing heavy old-time jewelry from 1968, 1969 and the 1970s. I am missing silver, turquoise, coral and mother of pearl jewelry. A lot of it is tortoiseshell small beads with handcarved birds on it. One bracelet has several pieces of turquoise all around it. The jewelry has been stolen by a certain person. I know who it is. If anyone has purchased this stuff , a lot of it was my mother’s jewelry and she is dead. In fact, I have no other family. These are the only things I have left. If any of you have purchased or traded for my pieces of jewelry, please contact me at 335-0749. If you’ll just call me I’ll pay you whatever you paid for it. I’m a lone survivor in the world and I have no other family. This stuff means the world to me. I know who did it and I am going to have them arrested. If you bought or traded it for anything, please call me. No questions asked. This is stuff I can’t replace and I can’t replace my mother. Please help me get my stuff back and I’ll make sure that you are rewarded. God bless any of you that will step forward and do this for me.

I want to wish my grandson, Nathan Eddie Hurley, a big birthday. He’ll be eight years old Nov. 16. He is from Hazard. I want to wish Emmitt P. Adams a very happy birthday on Nov. 16. He is from Isom. I want to wish my daughter, Maggie Jo Hurley, a happy belated birthday Oct. 26. She is from Hazard. I want to wish James Evart Coomer a bleated birthday on Nov. 4. He is from Covington. I want to wish Stanley Ray Coomer a happy birthday Oct. 5. He is from Hazard.

I wonder why The Mountain

Eagle
has quit putting people’s writing in it. People have been talking about just stopping and not buying The Mountain
Eagle
because they are not putting in what people send up there. So you might need to put in there whatever comes along whether it is good or whether it is bad.

(What ‘writing’ are you
talking about?)

You will be in my heart when the flowers bloom in the spring. You will be in my heart in summertime. You will be in my heart when the fall leaves turn gold. You will be in my heart in the wintertime to keep my heart warm. I love you, my angel.

Again, I am telling everyone who uses Jenkins Utilities to use their 1,000 gallons of water every month. I use less than 200 gallons and I am having to pay $57. I read my meter and see how few gallons I use and then I run the rest of it out. And I use up to at least 900 gallons. If we all stick together and do this they are not going to make any money off of us. Then they will have to go a diff erent route. Even during drought time, if I am paying a minimum for water, then I will use it. I can’t go over that because of the drought or water ban, but if I am paying for 1,000 gallons of water I will use it. Please read your meter and at least use 800 gallons a month if you are only using 100 or 200 gallons a month now. We have to break the system for charging people a minimum for things they don’t use. We have got to teach them a lesson, and the best way would be to use what we pay for.

I would like to thank a certain woman, Miss K.B., for always being there for me when she doesn’t have to be. When I got locked up, she turned out to be an angel in disguise. She has helped me through so much, whether she realizes it or not. I just want to thank her from the bottom of my heart. I appreciate everything you have done. Hopefully, I’ll be able to make it up when I get released. Good luck and good night.

Randy Fields, I’m sorry to hear about Josh, your son. He’ll be sadly missed. I know it’s late, but it will be greatly appreciated if you’ll print this next week. Thank you, Stanley Pack.

Thank goodness Jim Ward was re-elected Letcher County Judge/Executive. The people running the 3,000 straight pipes in Letcher County are safe for another four years. This is a great way to attract tourism.

The boys are back in town now. For two years we didn’t have a crisis that raised the price of gas for our vehicles. Already the election’s over and the oil companies now feel it’s necessary to raise the price of gas. The Republicans are back in town now.

To my family: You know who you are and you know the real truth. You can lie and defend him all you want, but you know the truth and you know where you can go.

The doctors are a problem in Kentucky. I had three surgeries on my back and was only given muscle relaxers, which are no good for chronic pain.



Car dealerships in Knott County are the backbone for importing illegal drugs from Broward County, Florida pain mills. Track and you will find. Everybody gets a cut and the little ones go to jail. That is a fact.



Aunt Katie and Uncle Preach, it was great talking to you. I had an almost perfect birthday. The only thing missing was you two. I miss you and love you both. Hope to see you soon. All your family in Kentucky says hello.



Today is Thursday and I just want to say I spent a good morning with my Aunt Lynda from over on Smoot Creek. We both love The Mountain Eagle.

(Thank you.)

 I don’t vote because the news media just tells us half the story. The news media said that a Democrat judge in California struck down the don’t ask don’t tell gay in the military law. Republicans went bananas about them darn Democrats. Only once did I hear it on the news that it was a gay Republican group who were the ones who sued and got the law struck down. Last night on TV a former Republican presidential candidate said it wasn’t social issues but money issues the Republican party agreed upon. In other words the Republican said he was for gay rights.

To the person not long ago commented about a church: It seems to me a lot of churches are doing wrong. It’s getting to be all about the money, and the worse thing is that they are not even helping people in need with the money. You cannot say they are not people in need, because there are many kids in need. You can say there parents could get a job. Well, yes they can but is that enough? Kids can’t help what their parents do. No wonder our church world is in trouble; we are not doing what the Bible says. Preachers, pastors, and deacons, you’re not doing your job. Some are just trying to find a woman.
