I want to be this certain school secretary. All she does all day is watch the cameras and call the teacher and jump them for not watching the kids.

I am looking for the descendants of Joel Martin ‘Mart’ Wright, who was the son of George Wright and Mary Potter. Joel married Mary Alice Killen. They had at least four children: Elmer, Dixie, Goldie and Maggie. Joel was a deputy sheriff for Letcher County and was killed in the line of duty in 1916 when attempting to make an arrest. He is being honored in a ceremony in Washington, D.C., in May. I would like to get information about the ceremony to any direct descendant. Please contact me at karenchat@aol.com.

.

We would like to wish my mamaw and papaw a very happy 49th anniversary. It was on April 7. You are the perfect example of a marriage. We love you very much. Love, Hali, Matt, Maddox and Peyton.

People talk about how times have changed. When I was young the gas went off occasionally in winter and the family went and thawed out the meters. Columbia Gas has only gone off once in the last 25 years at my house. Kentucky Power never went off when I was young and Kentucky Power is off now, again, for the second time in a few days.

.

I love you, baby. From your friend in Neon.

.

I don’t run anybody else’s life. I could care less what you people do. Get a life.

Everyone needs to watch their AEP power bills. I paid by BillMatrix (now known as Fiserv). It was posted, supposedly, and I was given a confirmation number. When I got my bill this month it said it was overdue. I called. The guy told me BillMatrix had been having problems. I said let me pay it. I went through BillMatrix again to pay everything, even though I had a confirmation number for last month. The next day I get a disconnect notice in the mail from AEP. My bill was not late. They didn’t get it because of BillMatrix, which wasn’t my fault because I posted it the third day of the month of last March. Yet I still get a disconnect notice in the mail from AEP. If you go to BillMatrix, please confi rm with them they posted your bill. If you go through any other agency, such as Walmart, to pay your phone bill, it takes three to five days, so be aware of the time limit that you have with that.

.

Remember the three R’s — respect for yourself, respect for others and responsibility for all of your actions.

.

The young generation says that Social Security should be cut for old folks because the old folks squandered their money. I’m one of those old folks, and like my co-workers, we squandered our money on the young folks we were raising.

.

I would like thank everyone in Metcalfe County for their concern during my time of bereavement.

.

You are wasting your time waddling into church every Sunday, because a lie is a lie no matter how you color it.

.

I’m glad they finally got the drug dealers over at Deane.

.

This is to the City of Whitesburg: Do you think we might can get that hole fixed across from the City Barber Shop? It would be greatly appreciated, because it is getting very big.

.

Everybody needs to get together and take their garbage to Millstone and just go ahead and put it in the garbage truck for them. They’ll want us to do that next. Might as well get ready. The county has spoken. Everybody needs to jump now.

.

If anybody knows what a moron is, it is you, because you fill the bill. You are lower than a moron. You are a wise idiot.

.

To Letcher County Judge/Executive Jim Ward: Have you ever been down that dirt road in Whitco? That is the trashiest place I have ever seen in my life, with junk cars plumb out to the edge of the road. If anybody had to pull off the road, they couldn’t. Judge, why don’t you go through there and make him clean that nasty place up? It’s a shame. He has disgraced Whitco.

.

I heard a retired federal employee on TV advocating cutting Social Security. Shouldn’t a tea party advocate cutting his or her own government pensions first?

.

I saw the picture of Elsie Banks in The Mountain Eagle this week celebrating her birthday. I’d like to say belated happy birthday wishes, Elsie. I hope Doris Banks continues to write her column. I miss what Elsie always had to say about the good people on Cowan and elsewhere. Happy day, Elsie.

.

This is ‘hey neighbor’ talking to ‘ hey stranger.’ Just be glad you are where you are, because if you were around this bunch of trash I have had to put up with, yes, I would knock your windshield out and put my foot where the sun don’t shine. Be good to yourself.

.

I would just like to know why all state workers — I am talking about the men — think they are sexy. I’ve got news for you, son. Anybody can get a job. You are not sexy. You need to go on a diet.

.

This is to the owner of a little red sports car: At exactly 3:48 p.m. on a recent day you hit a young dog that was less than a year old. I was on my porch when you hit it. You slowed down. There was a little yellow car behind you. The dog you hit is now dead. I heard it yelp once when you hit it. Why couldn’t you have gotten out to see if anything was wrong? What happens if it was a child? This was up in Mayking on Cram Creek and you know who you are. This is the owner who saw it and heard it. We had to get the dog out of the creek it was knocked into. I hope you sleep well at night, because I can’t after what I saw and heard. What if you were flying in this hollow and it was a child you hit? You probably would have kept going, a hit-and-run. So watch out next time you see a dog in the road. It’s probably somebody’s beloved pet like this one was. This is one person that is hurting.

.

What is that piece of crap in the little three-way section coming into Whitesburg across from the college bookstore? It’s blocking the view and you can’t see anything because of it. It looks like something has already wrecked and left there. We need to have that thing removed. It is awful. It is an eyesore.

.

I think it is a shame that a certain person in a hollow thinks he can get away with fooling his neighbors. He is going to find out what can be done. His wife’s daughter is going to find out what she is doing and then this woman goes to church. What a laugh.

.

When my son was young he spent time in my garage and work shop. Some thought he was too young to help me work. Still, I passed my working knowledge on to him and he was a good learner. He still had his playtime. In high school, he lettered in three sports yet found the time to learn more. After high school he rebelled a little, but the training was there. Now, he’s married and has a little beautiful son. He has grown up to be a man and now thanks me for the education I gave him. I am truly proud of him and of my teaching. He said I did good and he will pass the knowledge on to his son. As a father I think the time I gave to him was priceless. Now I find there are some who say I was wrong. My job as a father was to teach. My son has become a man — my reward.

.

To a certain person: I know it is way past April 2, but I still want to wish you a happy birthday.

.

I just wanted to tell you all about the garbage deal. I think it is just a shame. They are taking the work out of the job so they can do nothing and get paid just the same. We pay our garbage bills. If they can’t pick up the garbage, then they have a problem. They need to hire some work hands.

.

For the next 24 hours, please refrain from criticizing anybody or anything.

.

I didn’t see any Eolia news. Come on, Brenda, I am still your number one fan. I would love to know what it is going on in Eolia. I hope you are not sick.

.

Remember when someone took something that belonged to you? Remember how much it hurt and how it felt? Well, you have done that to someone else. They feel the same thing, but I guess you are the kind of person who just doesn’t care. It will come back to haunt you and I hope you can remember those painful memories over and over again.

.

I am calling about a recent power outage in Jenkins. It was bad enough to be without power, but to be without power was neglect on the part of the City of Jenkins. We should have a generator to take care of this problem. I spoke with a supervisor at the water plant about why we don’t have a generator and he said they have been working on getting one. I asked him if he had called the National Guard in Hazard and he said that they have and were trying to find one. So after I called him I called the National Guard in Hazard myself and they said they had not spoken with anyone in Jenkins about a generator, but if they needed one they would be glad to help us in any way they could. By the way, my cousin works for the National Guard, so I know this is true. Shame on the whole administration of the City of Jenkins for letting this problem occur.

.

Can I count on you for those rocking years? The answer was no, but I still think about you. Have a good birthday.

.

When did Barney Fife become the new security guard at Fishpond Lake?

. I’d just like to say Letcher

County is going to look real pretty here in the next month or so when all of this garbage gets set out by the highways and the stray dogs get through tearing it up and putting it all up and down the roads. It’s going to look really pretty.

.

I would like to put a belated birthday wish in for my daughter, Sissy. Her birthday was April 9. Happy 49th birthday. Love you, Mommy.

.

You are crazy. I could care less about your business. You all are the ones who butt your noses in my business. You all have proved that. I really think you need to get a life.

.

On Friday morning I saw the most beautiful man at a fast food restaurant. You thought I didn’t see you, but I did. I love you very much and I always will. Thanks for being the man you are. If you ever have it in your heart, call me.

.

I’m looking at the five generations photo of the family of Mary Ruth Potter Bentley. People, isn’t that beautiful. Thank you to The Mountain Eagle for putting that in there. It moves my heart.

.

My wife is nine months pregnant and is still being prescribed 300 narcotic pills a month, 10 a day. She is nine months pregnant and I know it is her fault for going up there and getting them, but still, a doctor should realize when a woman is pregnant. This type of thing needs to be investigated.

.

Little Miss, I love how you wrote statements and ratted when you were in jail over the Suboxone incident just to get a $ 10 credit on canteen. Wow. You really ratted for $10 you had to pay back? The person whose name you gave in the statement was completely innocent. Shows how sharp you are. I wonder how it would make your husband feel to know you are out there with D.M.? Just remember that karma is around and she always comes back to haunt you. See you on the flip side.

.

This is to J.C.: So I hear you are out saying that I was the one in jail playing when the lights went out. That’s funny, seeing how you were the one that everybody saw doing it. As for flashing people, I never denied that, but we both know you were the one talking and playing with three people, including your husband. It’s a shame I am not able to tell him a few things.

.

To my mom, V.M.: I want to thank you for all that you have done for me and my baby. I have put you through a lot, and I’m sorry. I promise when I get out that everything will change for the better. To my sister: I want to thank you too. I love and miss all of you. I miss all the babies. I have a great family and I wouldn’t change the love we all have. I can’t wait to get out and hold the babies again. Mommy loves you with all my heart. Love always.

.

To A.S.: I have dreamed of the day I would finally have the chance to be with you. It looks like that day is right around the corner on May 20. I’m very excited about this and hope you are too. By the way, happy birthday. Sorry I can’t be there on your special day, but I will make up for it. Promise. Love you, your girl.

.

It’s a shame that a known murderer can spend one to two years in Letcher County Jail and then walk out on M.C.R., but drug addicts who actually need help get a year and are lucky if they get to go to rehab after surviving their sentence.

.

What I do on my own property is my business. I’m sure you are a lowdown pill- head that wants to cause trouble with people wherever you live. At least I own my own property and I don’t go from house to house just because I snort the rent money up my nose. Anybody who would rent to a dope-head troublemaker is nothing but a devil. A good person would not rent to a dope-headed troublemaker.

.

People who believe in private pension plans have never had one. The government is never allowed to make Social Security retirement checks late. Today is the eighth day of the month and I still haven’t got my private retirement check. The reason I was given was the clerk who processes my retirement check took the day off. That was on the seventh. Of course, no one remembers the check was promised to me on the first of the month. That was when I was young and the retirement people were still lying to me.

.

It isn’t fair to live in the last house in a hollow. Now they’re asking you to take your garbage and put it on someone else’s property. I don’t think my neighbors would like that.
