When the weather is foggy or rainy, please turn your car headlights on. You might not need them to see with, but they make you show up better. Remember that the cars coming at you have water or fog on their windshield, and many now have tinted windows, so if you don’t have your lights on you’re just a fuzzy spot in their vision. Use this rule of thumb: If you need your wipers, you need your lights. Or, if you see three cars in a row with their lights on (and it isn’t a funeral line), then you need to turn your lights on so you can be seen.

I live in Whitesburg and I would like to know why the cops can’t get that man and woman on Cowan. All they are doing is making fun of you cops because you can’t catch them. All you’ve got to do is go to their house around midnight, or to their mother’s or daughter’s house. They are in Cowan making fun of you people and laughing. They are even taking their drugs and calling people wanting drugs from them and wanting money. They are out here stealing people’s stuff to get gas money to buy drugs with. They almost ran me off the road Friday night they were so messed up. Looks to me like they could set up roadblocks around town and catch them. Cops, catch these people. They need to be behind bars for good.

Hey taxpayers. Do you like working hard all week and paying your taxes while people are on welfare and you are keeping them up? For instance, what do you think about a man and a woman having a baby just to get a check or medical card so they can go to these drug doctors and won’t even work? I get so tired of paying taxes. I’m just going to quit work and see if I can’t draw food stamps and welfare. No, I can’t. I don’t have any children. I’ll have to find someone to have me some children so I can. That’s awful.

What kind of idiot flicks boogers on the wall in a public restroom? Check the college of all places.

Instead of going to your mom and talking to her about how to make your kids mind, it has come to an end. To the blonde-headed pill popper and the foureyed monkey pill pusher: You are getting ready to get busted, because we’re taking it to someone who will do something about you. You need to get your kids under control and stop your pill popping and pill pushing. Start taking care of your kids because it is just a matter of time before you are busted.

.

You give up too easy. I will always love you.

If there is illegal cockfighting going on in this county, it needs to be reported to the proper authorities.

There is no reason to mistreat anything or any animal be it a human, a puppy or a chicken.

In 1999, I married a beautiful woman from Letcher County. She came from a wonderful and respected family. I knew our worlds were different but did not know how great of a difference it would be. I have finally convinced her this is 2011 and we are not living in Letcher County. I finally convinced her that being bullheaded, holding a grudge, hate and unforgiving is not part of our world here. Some of her close family believe differently. She now knows our marriage is first, that we can now build a life and leave all that stupid hell down there for the stupid ones that want it. I agree with the caller who called it ‘the hillbilly hell that is Letcher County.’ We both are very happy we didn’t move down there. Nothing will ever change there. The good people keep to themselves and the bad rule. The politicians run the county with an iron fist. A very few have it all and the rest are pitiful people who vote the same controlling people in office. The politicians’ talk could fertilize the state of Oklahoma. A can of gas can settle an argument in the middle of night. Killing is OK in Letcher County if you are in the right family. Stealing and dope are a way of life. Others have no rights. The list can go on forever. These people are proud of their stupid, backward ways. They don’t know what foolish pride is. Again, there are nice people in the county.

I saw something in the road at the Rite-Aid intersection, and when I stopped for the light I could see that it was a freshly used disposable diaper. What kind of human trash throws that stuff out in the middle of the road? People, carry a couple of plastic bags around with you and take your garbage home. Letcher County has some of the nastiest roadsides in Kentucky, and that makes the whole county look bad.

(It’s safe to say that at least 99 percent of the people in Letcher County join you in wondering what kind of ‘human trash’ litters our highways and creeks. The one-percent who are too stupid to keep their trash in their car until they get home do make the rest of us look bad, don’t they?)

.

Finally FOX News is having to eat crow about the way the have talked about President Obama. He got Bin Laden and he killed him, something George Bush couldn’t do in all his time in there. And I am a white man speaking. I voted for the old boy and I think he is doing a good job.

.

I’m out of town and I still get The Mountain Eagle where I am. I just read on page 10 of April 27’s paper about a Jenkins man being sentenced to house arrest after pleading guilty. Let me tell you folks in Kentucky, if a person that you don’t know and fear is up to no good is on your property — it only takes one toe on your property — you have the right to blow them away. If we do this more often we won’t be robbed anymore. I have been robbed so many times. Even my father’s police gun has been stolen, something he worked for and something I had in remembrance of him since I have no other family alive. I hope this man gets everything I am thinking in my head. A thief is a thief. I don’t care if it is a nickel or a $1 million. A thief is lower than a snake’s belly, and I hope that man gets everything that is coming to him. And here is another thing: Mayor Kincer, why are you turning down water money when I have to pay $59 a month whether I use 1,000 gallons or 10 gallons? I am on disability and you won’t get the money to help us. What is wrong with you? This is an educated person talking to you with two college degrees and an IQ of 156. What’s yours? How can you justify turning down money for any water project in Jenkins where my water smells like a bear and egg flatulence all the time in my house and I am still paying for 100 gallons a month for $59? That’s not helping us.

.

To the person who stole my father’s police pistol: I know who you are. I know where you live. I know who your baby mama is and I know where she lives. Now return the gun. No questions asked or you are going to see a different gun. Don’t take me lightly, son. I am tired of you stealing my medicines, my belongings but this is the final straw that broke the camel’s back. You are going to pay for this for the rest of your life. Return the gun and you may have insurance to live. If you don’t return it, you don’t have any insurance. Don’t take me lightly.

.

Well, you know it is not over until the fat lady sings and she is just about ready to sing. And then it will be over.

.

The Fleming-Neon City Council and mayor make me sick. They do nothing for the people, just spend tax money on cars, police cruisers, Tahoes, whatever they want. Neon needs to be absorbed by the county government to dissolve this town click. If you get robbed on the weekend the county has to answer the alarm because we have no cops on call. Now we have a Robo Cop councilwoman going around checking on streetlights and turning them off. Are you really that bored? Let’s get a petition to abolish the city, mayor and council and just go to the county. No more city taxes of Neon paid for anything. Get on board, everyone, and let’s see what we can do.

.

This is to the person who started their comment with ‘Dear God’: Congratulations, you hit the nail on the head. If all the food stamps were cut out all the dopers would have to work like my parents and others did and dig up the hillside to feed us. The women raised the gardens while the men dug out a few dollars deep inside the coal mines. My parents did it and we seldom saw an obese person because they got exercise by doing the buzz. The only dope they knew is what they referred to as Coca-Cola. God bless those who are telling it like it is as you did.

.

I can’t wait until my girlfriend starts working at the races again. I just can’t wait to see her again.

.

I just wanted to let everyone in Jenkins know that Pinocchio still exists. He is alive after all these years. His nose is about 200 feet long and if you want to see him, he lives in Dunham at Wyatt Hollow.

.

Just to remind you. I already have cameras set up. The next trip you leave that trailer park and come up this hill slowly driving by my home throwing out your garbage on my property, I will get you on camera.

If anybody knows what a psycho is it would be you. By all means, pal, you sure fit that bill. They couldn’t even keep you in a padded cell you are so bad off.

.

God oh God. Osama Bin Laden is dead.

.

John, you are dealing with dangerous people. They will lie and try to cheat your soul from God. They are evil and mean. I hope you can deal with it when they turn on you. I’ll be praying for you.

.

I might look like a girl, but I am tickled to death I don’t look like a 400-pound slob like you who looks like his mother.

.

We would like to say hi and we love you to our dad, Charles Gross. From Joseph and Jordan.

.

If you want to get the crooks out of your community and protect the old people, quit renting your house to them. It would be easy to get rid of them.

.

Has the county stop picking up garbage. It has been two weeks since my garbage has been picked up.

The caller talking about Medicare a couple of weeks ago is right on. Medicare is not an entitlement. It is a health care insurance and we are paying for it. He is also right in noting that his boss who maybe makes more and pays less taxes is not fair. Why is this? It’s because Senator Mc- Connell and the so-called conservatives are fighting tooth and nail to keep the tax breaks and loopholes for the wealthy folks. They are not tax hikes they are just trying to keep all of the breaks open that were opened up about eight years ago under Bush and they don’t want them to expire. Of course they don’t call it that, they call it job-killing taxes and tax increases and we get scared and think it is about us and we fall for it again. If our Congress was honest about it and really said, hey, we’re just fighting for the wealthy to keep the tax breaks, they would never get to first base. It is hard for them to be honest, isn’t it? When your campaign is being paid for by these people, it is pretty hard to be honest with the average Joe who is footing the bill.

.

I would like to tell my dearest and closest friends how much they really mean to me. I love each and every one of them with all my heart. If not for them, I wouldn’t have made it through the past year or so. I love you very much.

.

To my one and only and the love of my life: You mean more to me than anything in this world. You are not only my best friend and my lover, you are my whole life, my rock, my protector and most importantly my hero. Even though we are apart right now, I will always love you and will be here waiting with open arms. You are my heart and soul mate. I will love you forever and always. I love you, baby.

My mom has been in ICU for over a month at Whitesburg ARH hospital. Every worker I have come in contact with — nurses, respiratory therapists, desk clerks, maintenance — have all been so wonderful and have treated us like family. We are very fortunate to have this caliber of people in our community and I thank all of you.

.

Remember the name Herman Cain. I would vote for him for president.

.

This is old hey neighbor back to that little girl I am talking to: If you put your name in the paper, I will send you a box of Pampers. What is your problem? Are you pregnant? Are you old and going through the change or something?

.

You need to shut up and leave my mom alone. She is not bothering you. Defend yours and we’ll defend ours.

.

You are the most honest and sweet person in the world and I would give anything if you would give me a chance just to talk to you although I know I have done you wrong. I want to make things right even though they can never go back to the way they were. I just want to talk and if you don’t want to talk to me, it is what it is and it breaks my heart. Now you know how I feel about you and please consider taking the conversation. I want to apologize about K. Nothing ever happened. That’s one thing I am telling the truth about. Bye, sweetheart.

<b>With the cancer center at Pikeville Methodist Hospital, Pikeville is the cancer capital of Kentucky. They always talk about a cure for cancer and ignore all the things doctors say that will prevent cancer. Most people don’t even know what the term carcinogenic means. It means a poison which gives you cancer.

.

To all you women out there with that copper red hair: Every one of you is gorgeous and beautiful, but change it. Get rid of that copper red.

.

If you think that woman loves you, then you don’t even know what love is. I love you more than life itself. I will always love you.

.

Osama Bin Laden is not dead but has been spotted on Bee Tree as recently as May 5, still terrorizing. There is a possibility that he has changed his last name to Banks. AKA: OBB.

.

To a certain man on Pratt’s Branch: Threatening to press charges on me for loving you is the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard. If anything, I should press charges on you for stealing my heart and breaking it. I love you and nothing you do or say will ever change that. You should know that by now.

.

I’m impressed with Walmart in Whitesburg. I quit going food shopping there. They’d never have what I wanted. Now they do. Have they got somebody else working the food department now? Several other people said they do. Lots of us are impressed, so whoever you’ve got doing it, keep them there.

.

To my sister-in-law: I’m so proud of you. You’re a star that shines so bright. I have all the faith in the world that you will make it, so hold your head high. You’ve made so many possibilities for yourself and all the girls that can do work release. Thanks for being the great friend and family you are. Just when I thought there was no hope, you helped me see differently. Love, your sister-in-law.

.

I’m glad you deleted me. always thought you were strange. I was just trying to be nice. No wonder your husband is a drunk. They say he has to be to put with you. If he is still with you, I feel sorry for him. And Red does not agree with you.

.

S.T.C., I just wanted to say I think of you every day. My heart belongs to you and with you is where I want it to stay. Hearing your voice brings a smile on my face. I love you, I miss you. Can’t wait to see you. With all my love, your little J.H.

This is Wednesday, May 4. To whom it may concern: I was never hired to cut the cemetery in the first place. An older relative told me to ask a few people for a small amount of money and that’s what I’m doing. There are probably 50 people younger than me to do it, but it’s a traditional thing I choose to do. It’s more of a shame that busybodies like you couldn’t keep your trap shut. Just know what you’re talking about. Apparently you don’t. Please print this? Thank you, Stanley Pack.

.

Well, I’m happy to say the jail has let one female inmate go out for work release. At least that is a start. Now they should figure out a way to let some of them become trustees. Let them work in the laundry room or something. Well, they have got one foot in the door anyway. Thank you, Don McCall. From a concerned citizen.

.

I think it is silly for people not to accept people’s Facebook Friend request. If you know them, what’s the problem? And what’s stupid is people will add you and delete you for no reason. Being a man doesn’t mean you’re a pervert. It’s just Facebook. It doesn’t mean you’re going to be joined at the hip. People like that don’t have enough sense to have a Facebook account.

.

Hi my love. I miss you so much. I think about you 24/7. You’re the love of my life and we will be back together eventually. I pray you will wait on me the same as I will you. Our son and daughter love you with all of their hearts. I love you, my sexy man. Love, your soonto be wife.

.

To Daddy: Just wanted to let you know I’m thinking of you. I love you more than anything. This will be over soon, just hang in there. I love when I get to see you every day. It’s all I look forward to. I look at your pictures every night and dream about the day we will be back together. I love you, baby, and always will. I’ll be with you until the end of time. Don’t forget me. Daddy, you’re my soul mate. Listen to the song ‘What’d You Want’. Write me back. A.R.M.

.

To J.H.: I’m glad to know that you still care, and I think about you all the time as well. I miss you more than you know. I hope and pray that when you get out you’ll stay out of trouble. I don’t know how long I’ll be in here, but as long as you write to me and let me know you’re alright and that you love me, then my mind will be at ease. I love you, little J.H., and I’m hoping one of these days we can share some happiness together. Take care and I love you too. From S.T.C.
