Even with the tough economic times we are experiencing, people still have big hearts when it comes to making a child smile on Christmas Day. The men and women of Pine Mountain Search And Rescue are doing what they can to help the children of Letcher County. Please do your part and help a friend or neighbor in need. Happy holidays to all.

I have a suggestion for a certain pharmacy. I think your drive-thru window should only be for dropping off prescriptions, not actually dropping off your prescriptions and sitting to wait for the prescriptions to be filled. That actually holds up the line.

I think they need to do something about the parking lot at West Whitesburg School. People don’t have anywhere to park or anything. The cops need to do something about that. It is getting to be a little ridiculous that you can’t get your kids to school.



Sorry you are so far away right now. I think about you every day. I miss you. I love talking to you. Give me a call when you can. That is all I know to say right now. I do miss talking to you. I love you.

I just called Walmart and wanted to speak to someone in electronics. I called three diff erent times and was put on hold every time. I could not even get a manager on the phone. You guys did a good job on changing the store around, so how about working on picking up the phone when someone calls in and has a question?

I would like to publicly apologize to the lady who went to Lexington with my aunt and me for my behavior and language. I sincerely hope you will forgive me.

The year is 1967, 1968 and 1969. The time is around 7:30 or 8 o’clock. The weather is chilly and cool and the air is blowing and I stand there, me and my brothers and sisters, waiting in anticipation to watch Santa. We stood there around the old train depot. And sure enough, around 8 o’clock here comes Santa in his sleigh. All of his elves were shining flashlights on him so we could see him. He left us all treats and he wished us all a merry Christmas as the snow gently fell. The night air was so cool and the wind was just blowing and blowing. As a little child I sat there and wondered when Santa would come that night. He was already in town and it shouldn’t be that long. I had a wonderful childhood. And I wish every child could feel the joy and peace of a loving family like I did. May you have the happiest of holidays. May your season be bright and merry. If for some reason your season isn’t so bright, you could always pray that God could shine some light on your heart. Don’t forget this Christmas season as time is approaching faster and faster. Buy presents for those you love and God is always there to help and guide you and stand beside you when you are in need. And this year ,why don’t you buy an extra present or two for people who are in need or for the old and handicapped and just give it out to them? A helping hand is a good hand. I believe that God will judge you for the things you do wrong on this earth but He will also judge you for the things you know to do but you don’t. Peace on earth, goodwill toward men. I think that is a beautiful song. And I hope Christmas in the Park this year is as happy as ever because I sure intend on going. God bless you all and merry Christmas. Don’t forget to say a prayer of thanks. Have a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year.

Listen. I don’t drink beer or whiskey and I don’t smoke pot, but if they would legalize pot just think, that would shut down all of those murders on the Mexican border. It would bring them to a halt and I think they should legalize that stuff even though I don’t use it.

I would like to wish Minnie, my dearest friend, a very happy birthday on Nov. 28. I hope you have many more. I certainly do miss you.



I would like to wish Ruth a belated very happy birthday and I hope you have many more to come and I hope you have a wonderful holiday season.

This is L.W.’s friend. I want to wish her a happy 14th birthday.

I don’t care who it concerns, but they’re kicking kids out of Jenkins High School over skipping, but they don’t kick them out over smoking dope in the bathroom and fighting and all of that stupid stuff. I think it is really immature, but they need to get people up there who know how to teach and don’t let these underage hoochies skip class and text. That is my opinion about Jenkins High School. They are nothing but a bunch of no good teachers that need to learn how to teach.



This is from your friends at Jenkins. We are calling to wish you a happy birthday. Hope it is good. We miss you.

There was a comment a little while back about the security guard lying down in the rain and giving this lady and her kids a tow. I believe he lives in Colson and drives a red pickup truck with tinted windows.

To a certain woman: Your license plate says ‘coal miner’s wife.’ Don’t you think your husband ought to have to job in a coal mine and you should be his wife? If I were you I would change it to ‘copper thief’s girlfriend.’



To a certain person: I’d call someone a freeloader if I were you. All you have ever done is steal from people. You’ve never worked a day in your life. You are nothing but a scum and a deadbeat. People know you for what you are. You don’t have to confess it in Speak Your Piece. They know it anyway.



I don’t know who lives in the two places right below the Indian Creek Discount, but one has a glowing cross and flashing lights in the front yard and the other one has a glowing cross and arch in the front yard. These are the most beautiful and important displays I have seen this Christmas or any Christmas and I want to thank you for putting Christ back in Christmas. May God bless you.

This is to a guy who lives in Craft’s Colly: You messed up. You had one that was taking care of you and look what you did. She lost everything she had and now you are running the roads trying to find another one to take care of you. I bet you miss her, don’t you?



I am going to speak my piece, first about the strip mines and the people complaining about them. Okay, those complaining are probably check-drawing, food stamp eating pieces of garbage who never worked a day in their life. So let me tell you, you call AEP and tell them to cut your power off . Set up those pretty windmills in your yard first thing Monday morning and see how long you can live without power. And the ones that complain about people that smoke, how about the ones that don’t take baths and you have to stand behind them in lines and smell their nasty hind ends? I think that smells worse than smoke.

How in the world does Letcher County Deputy Judge Eddie Meade get by with badmouthing people out of a public office. I know for a fact that he badmouthed one of his neighbors, a very hardworking man. What is his problem? I bet he would fall over dead if he had to work as hard as some of the people he badmouths and besides that they pay his salary.



To the couple complaining about losing their kids in court last week: Did you stop to think about what you put the kids through? Have you thought about why you were both convicted and sent to jail? Money has nothing to do with it.



Did you know that half of the coal mined in the eastern United States is in state of Kentucky, but here in eastern Kentucky where all of this coal is we are 100 years behind everyone else? We do not have water and sewer. We do not have good roads. Yet our politicians use and abuse us. We ought to have commodes made of gold because of the coal that’s here in Kentucky. But no, they use us and abuse us because they say we are a bunch of stupid hillbillies. But you know what, if we did today what we need to do to put our politicians in place, we would be in jail today or else dead. Shot by our own government.

(Actually, when it comes
to coal the reason we all
don’t have ‘commodes made
of gold’ has more to do with
the turn-of-the-century
broadform deeds than what
the politicians of today do or
do not do.)

You are the light of my sunshine and I love you and you are very special. You are my angel and you are my life and my only life. I love you.



I’m 60 years old and I am looking to meet a nice lady that doesn’t smoke and who goes to church. I go to church and I just want to meet a nice woman.



Well, they tell me that makes 25 years that Tennessee has whipped Kentucky in football. I think next year the Kentucky men should have to wear dresses down to their ankles.



To the pretty woman who works at the feed store: The blind pig finds acorns because of his superior sniff er. Think about that, won’t you?
