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’m calling on the comment about The Mountain Eagle, ‘It Screams!’ Yes, it does, because if you live in Laurel County where I live, our paper will print nothing if it isn’t praise and all this wonderful garbage. Try living here. Women in jail, work them. Throw them out there and let them work. Drug testing for food stamps, absolutely. People sell them, I know that for a fact. I know it is getting to be warm weather again and I know a lot of vacationers who will come to Letcher County to see the mountains tore all to pieces. That’s for Stella Parton and her blowdryer. Thank you and The Mountain Eagle, you do a great job. Don’t listen to anybody tell you any different.

We know who came up on the mountain and broke into the pump house and stole the tools out of the building in the lady’s yard. You are driving a pickup truck. Someone was up on the mountain above the club looking for mushrooms and poke and they saw you. What you took this time wasn’t too valuable — a little Weed Eater and some tools. There wasn’t much of value in the building, but you broke the door all to pieces, which wasn’t appreciated. We know who you are. Come back again and you will be prosecuted. Anybody who stoops so low to steal stuff from people who work hard is pretty darn dirty. You better keep your butt away from the mountain stealing.

(If you know who the thief is you should prosecute now. Other than child molesters, rapists and coldblooded murderers, there is no one lower than a thief.)

.

I’m calling in response to the comment in last week’s paper about a woman upset because someone said her niece was wearing pants even though she had been saved. I was kind of confused. I wanted to know exactly where in the Bible it says you can’t wear pants if you are a Christian. In my opinion, if you are wearing pants at least your stuff is covered up. Please tell me what verse it is that says you can’t wear pants. I am so sure when we all get to Heaven everyone isn’t going to be wearing dresses. Right. Hallelujah.

.

I thought a certain foster mom is supposed to keep an eye on the foster kids, but come to find out she likes drugs and stuff. I think it should be looked into. If anyone else has an idea about this, please respond in next week’s Speak Your Piece.

.

Hey, sexy eyes. I have been back in town a long time and I haven’t seen anything in here from you in a long time. I would like to know what is going on with you. Tell me what’s on your mind.

.

I’m just calling to find out there are any decent men left in Letcher County who are single and around age 50, maybe a little older.

Dear Speak Your Piece: Whatever happened to that big federal medium security penitentiary we were going to get here in Letcher County? Hal Rogers needs to get on the ball and get this for us. Our economy here desperately needs a shot in the arm. The coal business here will never produce the kinds of coal booms that we had in the 1970s. We need Hal Rogers to get us half a billion dollars for Kentucky Medicaid, and legalize hemp for fuel. Let’s try to get our economy going instead of Saudi Arabia.

(Last week’s edition of The Eagle carried a report saying the federal Bureau of Prisons has moved to ‘Phase II’ in its process of selecting a site for the proposed prison. The same report said local officials have been assured the Bureau is committed to building a prison here.)

.

What to the women of Letcher County? It hasn’t been too many years since most of the women here were feminine and devoted most of their time to working hard at their jobs and raising a good family when they got home. They may have partied a little, but they knew where to draw the line. Those women have been replaced by fat, drug-addicted slobs, many of whom can be seen in the Walmart parking with cigarettes hanging out of their mouths when they’re not in jail for a drug-related crime or for neglecting their children. This county is in a sad shape, and the young women of today are very much to blame for its pitiful condition. How pathetically sad.

.

Fifty-percent of all people who have health insurance have it through the government or a government agency. Why is it so wrong to let working taxpayers have health insurance?

.

Happy birthday, James Wilder. We love you. Your cousins Amy, Josh, Jeffrey and Lilyana.

.

To You got jail time and your mommy got pleasure time with the person that put you there.

I just listened to Letcher County Judge/Executive Jim Ward on the radio talk about this new ordinance with companies that were running overweight on our hollows and roads in Letcher County and them now having to come to the courthouse and get permission to do so. He was talking about how people couldn’t get septic tanks put in or gravel hauled and all that stuff. These trucks are not overweight to start with. The trucks that are overweight that this ordinance is intending to deal with are the heavy trucks that are tearing our roads all to pieces and destroying people’s homes and properties. That is what this ordinance is for. It is not to keep people from putting in septic tanks or hauling gravel, which is legal on the roads anyway. If you need to move a trailer or something like that, which is an over-wide load situation, you might have a problem with a road that is too narrow. But you’ve got that problem anyway. I think the ordinance is a good thing. I think it is something that we need, because the taxpayers of the county built those roads and we don’t need some milliondollar organization coming from out of state destroying everything we have and letting a few people work for a week or two and then moving on to somewhere else. They are taking all the wealth out from under the ground here while destroying the roads and infrastructure we have built.

.

Hey, county judge. When are you going to clean up that filth in Neon? Beware, the Shadow is watching you.

.

We were just watching the government channel and we would like to know who the old guy is who sits at the left-hand side of the table near Codell Gibson when they are having a fiscal court meeting. Seems like each time we see him he is rocking himself to sleep with his head held down and his eyes closed. We are just wondering who he is.

.

I would like to wish my son, James Wilder, a happy sixteenth birthday on April 5. We love you. Love, Mom and Dad.

.

I send my kids to school. work all day long. I send them to school to get an education and they send them back home with the work for me to help my kid do and I am paying them to do it.

(Are you seriously complaining about being asked to make sure your child does his or her homework?)

Congratulations to Terry Adams, Wayne Fleming, Keith Adams and Bobby Howard for standing up for the citizens of Letcher County against Equitable Gas coming across people’s property. And I guess by the two ‘no’ votes, which were County Judge Jim Ward and District Three Magistrate Codell Gibson, you can tell who the gas companies supported in the last election. If I could and if I had the money, I would buy a billboard that had a picture of Carroll Smith on it with the words ‘ Miss me now?’ We the people of Letcher County have had no one to stand behind us since Jim Ward has taken office. So thank you, Terry, Wayne, Keith and Bobby, for standing up for us, because the last four years have really sucked here. Congratulations to you all for finally taking a stand against Jim and his cronies.

.

Wanting to say happy sixteenth birthday to Cousin J.D. We love you. Carly Shae and Bailey Rhae.

.

I would like to wish my girl, Beth McCool, a happy birthday. She turned 23 on March 27. I hope you have a good birthday and I wish you many more. We have not known each other long, but we have hung out a lot since day one and we have had so much fun together. Like we always say, we are so much alike it is not even funny. We have both been through so much in our lives, but I want you to know that I am here for you and always will be. I love you, Beth. Love, your best friend Sonya.

I think it shouldn’t be anybody’s business if they want make a comment about their angel. If they care that much about somebody, that is their business. Apparently you have a personal problem. You are apparently not anyone’s angel and apparently no one cares that much about you.

.

This is to the private club in Jenkins: First of all, I didn’t know it was legal to sell bootleg whiskey anywhere in Letcher County. This county is a dry county. You told me yourself you all couldn’t pay your own bills. I know for a fact it came out of your mouth.

.

Why doesn’t UNITE go get the white-headed teacher who is still dealing drugs?

.

My all the politicians and former politicians would clean up their political signs and others would remove their illegal advertisements from Kentucky highways in Letcher County, it would help clean up the county. If the politicians want the county clean, they should clean up their own mess off of the highway.

.

To the thief in the Ulvah area: Anytime you need gas all you have to do is come to my door, knock and I will give you what I’ve got. You don’t have to siphon it out of my car. This is one time you got away scot-free. Next time you better have your family members come and get you, because you will be lying there for awhile while you bleed out. Either the cops will be there, the morgue will be there or somebody else will be there to roll you over the darn hill. You understand me? First time is free, buddy. Next time it is going to cost you your behind, not mine.

.

Put WTCW back on the air and John St. John. Thank you.

.

To the big Kahuna: Inflation of gas prices has inspired me to write a new cookbook. The title of it is ‘Biscuits in a Hubcap, Coffee in a Can and Opossum on a Stick.’ As soon as I sell my invention, a silencer for a nuclear bomb, I am going to write a new book, ‘Has Anyone Seen My Medication?’ Signed, can’t get right.

.

Jim Ward, don’t scare people. First of all, trucks that come to put septic tanks in and bring gravels for driveways are not overweight. It’s your gas company trucks that you have made deals with that are overweight and causing damage, so don’t scare people. What put you back in office is what is overweight. So you need to think about it and shut up.

.

You always hear about your religion. You always hear about the sinners. Come be in my shoes for a little bit. I’m not good enough for the religious people to accommodate and I am not bad enough for the sinners to take. I am kind of an in-between person, so take it from there.

.

I am a 32-year-old single guy looking for a woman between the ages of 25 to 31 who is not married and does not have kids. If interested, please respond in next week’s paper.

.

Loosen up and relax. Except for rare life-anddeath matters, nothing is as important as it first seems.

.

Hey, neighbor. Put some more trash in the creek and stop my culvert up down there and get yourself another windshield knocked out.

.

Don’t insist on running someone else’s life.

.

I am looking for a bean seed or striped cornfield bean. If anybody has any seeds, would you please call me? My name is Debbie and my number is 633-8610.

.

To a certain person: You think you are going to take all this land with you when you go? I agree with you. You are going to take it and go straight to hell, because you haven’t been honest with anybody.

.

Wanting to say happy sixteenth birthday, Cuz James. I love you. Olivia.

.

To a certain person: Evidently you’ve not heard what she has done. No, you are not causing me any trouble, but I can’t believe you would be friends with something like that.

.

Hey, where you cleaned that filthy place up down there, or those little boys did. That impresses me. You keep doing that and me and you might become neighbors one of these days.

.

Sleep with the devil. 1. You, beauty outward, physical and inward spiritual beauty. He, devil, decadent 24 hours a day, ungodly, lasciviousness. We meet and I think life will be so wonderful the day we get married. I think he is the most wonderful man in all the world and we’re about to embark on a great career together. Finally realizing the dreams of a lifetime. Talking, laughing loving, growing, working together. Instead, disillusion, disappointment, heart aching set in. You’ve been kidnapped. You find out the man you married is a devil. You are living in hell and the worst nightmare 24 hours a day you could imagine. You have a 24-hour job trying to please him. He has to put you down. No respect in the bedroom, he’ll pick and walk all over you to make him feel like a man. No pleasing him. We go to church late so I can’t talk to anyone. He has absolutely no ambition, but to make life hell for me in his synagogue of Satan with his wickedness. It is time to do a Mexican standoff and create a way to escape and take your life back. God loves you. Knock down those prison walls that are supposed to be a home. Get out now. Help: 1-800- 799-7233. Abuse hotline: 1-800-752-6200.

From WRVA radio news, March 15: ‘To add fuel to the immigration fire, an illegal immigrant from Honduras, driving at more than twice the legal limit, killed one person and seriously injured three others. He is facing multiple charges, two of which are vehicular manslaughter and child endangerment, because he had a three-year-old in the vehicle. He had previously been deported and then came back.’ A few days ago in Michigan, a Hispanic tried to force his wife to call her family and say that she was being kidnapped. He beat her head against a stone wall, then poured Clorox on her. Where Hispanics live in large numbers there are usually many bars and nightclubs, and that is where most of them like to frequent and spend their money. Now President Calderon is telling Americans the same thing I did a few weeks ago.

.

To the person who wanted someone to rot in hell: That’s a horrible thing to say. I’m going to live forever in Paradise, so if that was for me, sorry. You might as well accept I’m with him. I’m not bothering you. I don’t backstab anyone. I don’t care what you think. Now tell me more stuff about me. God will get you. I don’t care.
