Jenkins Police are a joke. They don’t protect or serve. G. C. should do something about it.

.

Dear God: Please deliver me from this hillbilly hell called Letcher County, where more than two-third’s of the people are hooked on prescription drugs and the other third is hooked on sugar, lard and cigarettes. While there are a few decent, normal, hardworking and intelligent people here, they are dwarfed by the fourth-generation welfare bums who believe the rest of us owe them a living. And the fat, disgusting women I see at Walmart and other places with their clothes too tight and a cigarette hanging out their stupid dumb mouths just makes me want to puke. God, how could you put so many losers in such a beautiful place?

.

To the driver of the light blue Altima with the Friends of Coal license plate: According to the license plate you choose to display on your car, you are nothing but a coal company suck. Therefore, I am assuming you were fantasizing about your favorite mine owner when you nearly ran me over at Mayking the other night where the four-lane highway turns becomes two lanes. Signed, a friend of the coal miner.

.

To a certain foster parent: You think you all can get away with everything — hitting a pregnant girl and punishing them. Are you all out of drugs? I think people ought to check into it. I think the social workers should look into it. That is what I think. Anyone who agrees with me, please respond in next week’s Speak Your Piece.

.

To certain people over in Apple Tree Branch: You think you own the whole place there, but other people have a say-so in it, too. You all think you own the whole place, but I don’t think you do.

.

To the officials in the City of Jenkins: You’ve got a man who takes a city vehicle, parks it at his mommy’s house, drives to his house and sleeps three hours a day on you all. Boy, wouldn’t I like to have a job like that.

.

This is ‘hey neighbor’ to ‘hey scum bag moron’: Whose little girl are you anyway? You don’t have what it takes to face me. You are a piece of trash. Have a good day.

.

I think the people in Jenkins made a mistake by electing the new mayor. I wish we had Charlie back. We did have drinking water that we could drink and didn’t look like we just used the bathroom in it. He did keep the city ordinances. At present I can’t see anything he has done except a whole lot of talk.

Please don’t tell me to call you when you won’t answer the phone.

.

Why are the natural gas companies, Judge/Executive Jim Ward and three of our magistrates so against the public knowing which county roads are being battered by having overweight drilling equipment hauled on them? That rule certainly didn’t slow other commerce when Carroll Smith was county judge — back in the days when the gas companies didn’t rule Letcher County. And Bobby Howard should be ashamed of himself. His reverse vote will go down in history as one of the weakest votes ever on the Letcher Fiscal Court. He reminds me of those magistrates who used to vote against flood insurance.

.

If I pay taxes from the time I go to work until the time I retire to fund Medicare, how is this an entitlement? I have no issue with cutting taxes, but when my boss pays less taxes than I do and gets paid more, is this not just like the Medicare deal? I call this conservatives at work.

.

To the person who said people put silly things in Speak Your Piece and is complaining and attacking them: I don’t know who you are and who you are talking about, but it seems like you should have never said anything and the problem would have ended, whatever it was. Either you are the initiator or you are extending it. But to tell somebody you are better off with God, you sound like a horrible person.

.

To Stanley Pack: You should be grateful that someone cut the graveyard with your brothers out there. You do know you have family — two brothers, grandmother, uncles, cousins, grandfather. I think it’s a shame that you would ask somebody or expect any money for cutting a graveyard that has your own family in it.

.

It must be nice that you can rob a place and get out and brag about it and brag about how much money you got and say you are going to rob other places. If I did something like that, I sure couldn’t get away with it. I don’t know why the owner of the store doesn’t prosecute the one that did it. They know who did it. He doesn’t do anything but steal, rob and do drugs. It’s a shame they let someone like that walk around scot free.

.

Aside from losing my son, I have never been so hurt and humiliated in my life. I can’t believe the people I thought were my friends would do this to me.

.

Snoopy loves Dora forever and ever.

.

I was just wondering if we could get one of our law officials up here to Sergent Loop. We only have a certain number of mobile homes up here and one of them is dealing drugs. It is not hard to figure out if you will do a little investigating. Please come up here and stop the drug dealing in Sergent Loop.

.

This is not the end. It is just the beginning, and I think pretty soon you will find it out.

.

To deputy dog, who lives across the road from the cross: Do not attempt to intimidate me. You are an alcoholic and so is your son. Both of you drive drunk. Do you want me to call the law when I see you get in automobiles driving drunk? Don’t lean across the banister, yellow head, and say you are going to call the law, because I might get there first. This is the M.P. Don’t get me started again, baby. You can’t back me down. You never have and you never will. You know me. You will lose like you always have.

.

Why not go to the rooster ghts on Sunday? They have them every Sunday and it is only a few miles out of Whitesburg. They have alcohol, your drug of choice, prostitution and gambling. Why not go? I save my money up all week to go.

.

This is to the boy who pretended to be a preacher at a church on the other side of a radio station: You decided you were going to have church services just for your family and a cookout on Sunday. What happened to all the people who are supposed to be churchgoers? Isn’t that being a hypocrite by not inviting them, too? You don’t have any right to be a preacher. You didn’t go to preaching school. There shouldn’t be any suppers for families at a church.

.

Looks like someone would enforce the no pet rule at the park. Those of us who use it do care. The dogs sure like the volleyball sand.

.

Only God says who lives and who dies, not you. All the wishful thinking is not going to change anything, you disgusting fake. With all the stupid stuff you say, I can’t stand you. You’ll get yours.

.

To cell 133, S.T.C.: Just wanted to remind you that I do love you and I’m always thinking of you. Soon I will be out there and will be able to write and see you. It kills me, because I can’t talk to you anymore. Please don’t forget me within this short time we are apart, for soon that will all change. You will see. I love you and I miss you. Always remember angels on your pillow and me in your dreams. From 109. Love ya, J.H.

.

To a certain man who lives on Pratt Branch: Life throws us a lot of curve balls. Sometimes you have to step into it and take one for the team. That’s exactly what I think about the relationship you’re in. You are always on my mind and forever in my heart. Love, Dew.

.

The family of Johnny Ray Maggard would like to thank the nursing staff of Whitesburg ARH for their exceptional care and consideration during our time of need, as well as the Letcher Funeral Home staff for doing everything in their power to make everyone as comfortable as possible. Thanks to everyone who brought food, offered kind words and kept us in their hearts and prayers. Thanks to the Franks Creek Church for the use of the church and to Verdell Sturgill and Ted Collins for the kind words and comforting service. Thanks to everyone who helped at the cemetery. To anyone we may have forgotten to mention — friends, family, or strangers with kind hearts — we thank you. Sincerely, Shirley, Missy, James Ray, and Brenda.

.

To J.C.: So how do you feel now that a certain man is clinging to life because you gave him HIV? You shouldn’t mess with somebody unless you tell them. That’s how you got it, right? Because your husband did not tell you, so you say. Just so his family knows, we will keep him in our prayers. God bless you all.

.

This is Melissa W. I won’t be rude. You can share Kyle Busch with me. I love 88.

.

If that comment was about me, whatever. I’m not bothering you and I don’t have to have tons of friends that are strangers to make me feel good like you do. I have plenty. Stay out of my business and leave me alone. If anybody should be with God, it should be you. Then the trouble would end.

.

Well, some of those preachers are at it again trying to stop people from coming to the Hurricane Gap Old Regular Baptist Church. Well, if you are a preacher, a man of God, how could you ask anymore not to go to church no matter what church it is? Really, how more wrong can you get? You do know that you are not God, don’t you? So before anyone tries to blame the preacher or the church members, I do not belong to this church and I have not told them who I am, so this is my opinion and mine alone. If you are a preacher, you should want people in church somewhere, not telling them not to go. No matter where you go to church at or what denomination you are, you will be welcome with open arms by the preacher of Hurricane Gap Old Regular Baptist Church at Gordon, Ky. I know because I have been there before.
