I would like to know why it is that people haven’t got enough to do that they have to cause problems for other people. They also call the law enforcement and tell them lies and cause them trouble in the process, especially when they are no different than anyone else and are just as guilty of breaking the law as anybody else, especially with what they are fixing to do. They are also pirating pornographic material and are covering it up as a business. If you don’t know the truth, then keep to yourself. Someone from the Jeremiah area.

To Pooh: From the first time I saw you I knew I wanted to spend my life with you. No matter what else is going on, knowing I have you keeps a smile on my face, and helps me make it through the times that are the hardest. I am so lucky to have you, and if I make you as happy as you do me then we will be together forever. We have a chance for a fresh start, and to be a perfect family, and I couldn’t ask for anything more than that I love you Pooh, and nothing can ever change that. Love, J.M.C.

I Obama and his family on their four-country, six-day trip to Europe. They were having so much fun. I voted for him and I am so proud that I did. If he runs again, I will vote for him again.

To an immature mother of three who recently had to move back in with her mother: You may have won the battle, but I won the war. I got what I wanted. P.S., I had the key the whole time, but I was not going to let you take a known thief in there with all the stuff that didn’t belong to you.

.

To Magistrate Codell Gibson: Above your home we have potholes big enough to bury you in that the neighbors are having to fill up themselves. The people in Craft’s Colly need some help. Thank you.

.

An old action was to divide and conquer. People on Medicaid don’t care about the people on Medicare. The people on Medicare feel holier than thou. Both are going to be cut because people vote for people who talk about big government and don’t realize Medicare and Social Security are big government to conservatives.

.

See if you can catch us. We’re too smart for the cops here. We’re outlaws on the loose. Try to catch us. Just try.

.

If you’re charged with a crime in Letcher County, just don’t show up for court. Wait until they pick you up. It can be the best game that’s ever been played. They won’t look very hard for you.

. One day, B. and D., you will go down side by side, just like Bonnie and Clyde. What a sad ending. That boy is a sneaking thief. He needs to go to jail like his mom.

.

To a certain person: It’s about time you got a job. Maybe you’ll keep this one. All you do is lie around all day, letting your old lady work to keep you up. You don’t even have a decent vehicle to ride in without borrowing somebody’s. Get off your hind end and work. It’s time you kept her up now. She should get rid of you so she and her baby could have a better life.

I’ve seen many cute animal videos on the Internet, but this one is the best. Google the ultimate dog tease to see the most interesting thing I’ve ever seen done to a dog. It’s had over 50 million hits in just a few weeks. You’ll love it.

.

Conservatives say they want to go back to the original Constitution and the way it addresses everything. According to the original Constitution a black man was 3/5 of a person and women couldn’t vote. Does this make the term conservative woman politician an oxymoron?

.

I’ve been accused of being a conspiracy theorist for bringing up information the government doesn’t want you to know. People will lie their heads off, but evidence will always stand up to the test of the truth. That’s why the CSI programs have been so popular. A lot of toxic substances have been getting into our water, soil and food. Mercury is the most neurotoxic metal on the planet after plutonium. It’s even in flu shots. They say they have taken it out of children’s vaccines, but the government doesn’t always tell the truth. Why would this substance be in any of our vaccines? And yes, there is a connection between mercury and autism. Speaking of autism, a group of parents and lawyers released a report last week saying the government had been secretly paying millions of dollars to children whose families have been injured by vaccines. Google the report and read it.

(Health experts say that flu shots stored in multi-dose vials contain the preservative thimerosol, which is made of ethylmercury, a non-poisonous chemical compound. Ethylmercury’s counterpart methylmercury is a toxin that can cause severe brain damage, but is not in flu shots or other vaccines. If you don’t want any traces of mercury whatsoever in your flu vaccine, you may ask for a single-dose vial or the FluMist nasal spray.)

This is probably one of the most important things I’ve ever called in to Speak Your Piece. As a natural health consultant, I’ve given out a lot of information over the years, including a sheet on calcium and how it prevents 200 diseases in the body, including cancer. However, the calcium has to be absorbed by the body. Every time you drink a soda you block that absorption, thereby setting up all these diseases to take root in your body. If you have to drink a soda, eat meat with it. Don’t drink it on an empty stomach. Same thing with dessert, eat meat first. It keeps your blood sugar from spiking. I hope this helps. I am trying to improve the health of this county.

Dream on, Ugly. Signed, A.

Could anyone give me an explanation why the Kentucky State Police or offi cers with any other agency do not write tickets for these people riding four-wheelers on the highways? At night you can barely see them. They have no insurance and no license and they haul children on them. If they’re going to run these like regular vehicles, they ought to have to pay insurance the same way those of us who own cars and trucks have to do. If not, go to jail.

I like to read Speak Your Piece. I get great joy from it. However, when you call in to Speak Your Piece they give you one minute to make your statement but the very first one I read in this week’s paper was by some dude who got somewhere under a thousand words and half a page in. Can he talk that fast? Does everybody have the same opportunity? Thank you.

( The one-minute rule applies to the answering machine and had to be put into place early on to keep a single caller from using up all the tape before others had a chance. As for the message in the May 25 edition to which you refer, the ‘dude’ was given extra space because he signed his name and offered to have his comments published as a ‘letter to the editor.’)

This is a concerned citizen. If you don’t like pain, do not go to a certain doctor in need. I like pain and I couldn’t stand it. From one ex-Letcher Countian.

.

I sure hope they work on this road down on Cowan before school starts back. It’s a shame what the bus drivers have to drive over with little kids. It’s dangerous. The road has chugholes in it and is breaking up. I wouldn’t want my kids to ride in a bus over it.

.

To a woman who lives on Turkey Creek: You won’t even answer your phone when I call or call me back. I thought you were my friend, but I guess not. It looks like you would have the guts to tell me you don’t want me calling your house. Well, you don’t have to worry about that anymore.

.

To Amy Smith, daughter of Bessie and Robert Smith of Hallie: Congratulations on graduating the eighth grade. From a member of your family.

.

Hooray for the guy from Deane. His dream has come true. Beltline Barbie is free now.

.

FYI, I have a warrant for your arrest for threatening to do bodily harm on April 27, 2011. I can have this warrant served at any time. I suggest you bridle your tongue or that is exactly what I am going to do. Otherwise face the consequences in court, where you will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Thank you.

.

To N.P.: You’re all blown up like a big balloon full of hot air. You need to be punctured to let some of it out.

.

Why should Mayor G.C. Kincer have to repent for bringing beer and liquor into Jenkins for sale? Jenkins was totally corrupt and rotten to the core before this came up. It’s certainly not going to hurt it anymore.

(It should be pointed out that Mayor Kincer had no more say on the matter than any one of the 247 voters who cast ballots in favor of selling alcohol in certain restaurants in Jenkins and the 129 voters who thought it was a bad idea.)

.

What a loser. Ha ha ha. If you think that bothered me you better think again.

.

Has channel run out of ideas? Every time you turn it on morning, noon or night, it’s the same guy singing. I’m tired of looking at that fellow. Why don’t they cover some of the clubs or other meetings, or go by the schools, or just stand on the street corner and talk to people? Thank you.

.

This concerns two people on Flat Gap. The woman sells her prescription medication to anybody and everybody. She’s going around saying my daughter slept with her husband. That is not true and she will be paid back.

.

To a certain woman: I search for words to tell you how much you mean to me so that you know how precious each day has come to be. To show you how much I value the little things you do can’t really be expressed, dear, just by saying I love you. You’re my angel.

.

To a woman on Store Hill: Quit giving all these guys STD’s. It’s going to start coming back to you.

.

To Mr. Tackett, a/ k/ a Chum: How does it feel to be facing ten years in federal prison. You are now a senior citizen yourself, so why did you steal from senior citizens? By the way, the Golden Years Rest Home won’t be that much different than the prison to which you may be going. You may even die in prison.

.

I feel so sorry for the woman whose husband threw his keys at her at graduation the other night. She must live a terrible life. Some people are so stupid.

I from back in the earlier days all the way up until now. I remember they had a school in town, the drive-in at Potter’s Fork with concessions, a bread store and bakery, KYVA Motor Company, Jordan Motor Company, a theater, Joe Beauparlant’s restaurant, Sharon Heights Hospital, two funeral homes, a bus depot with restaurant, Ada’s 5 and 10 Cent Store, the Kiwanis swimming pool, Elkhorn Country Club, Ernest Robinson’s Philips 66 gas station, two dress shops, Hunsaker’s Market and Produce at Payne Gap, the Ted Bumgardner and Ernest Blevins Furniture Store, the VFW Post, our good old coal mines, Bill Farley’s gas station, UMWA office, Jim Arnold Holbrook’s barber shop. Marlene’s Dairy Mart, Clyde’s Auto Parts, C& C Battery, Pack’s Dairy Bar, Lavonne’s Beauty Shop, numerous churches to go to, the Cavalier Dairy Bar at Payne Gap, the fire department, Butch and Francis Mullins’s Grocery which changed to Jim Stallard’s grocery and is now the Jenkins IGA, the watch repair shop, Pack’s Jenkins Florist , Whitaker’s Music Store, Whitaker’s Army Surplus and Furniture and other things you could go to Jenkins for. Everyone was happy there without the sale of alcohol. It was a booming little town then. I think it could go back to the way it was in the older days without the alcohol sales. I think we could make it just fine without the alcohol sales. We need more churches and people taking their children to those churches. I think if we pray and pray hard the Lord will intervene and help us to have a better Jenkins without the alcohol sales. So let’s just all pray together and stay together drug-free and alcohol-free. Thank you.

I don’t want to take up too much room, but thought I would give you a recipe my kids love. It’s Pineapple Dip and it’s delicious on any kind of cracker. I take two boxes of cream cheese and one can of crushed pineapple. Put your cream cheese in a mixing bowl and put it in a microwave oven for about 30 seconds to 45 seconds. To the cream cheese you add the can of crushed pineapple and blend it well with a mixer. Also, be sure to use just half the liquid from the can of pineapple. Another good recipe for cream cheese is a dip/sandwich spread that calls for two boxes of cream cheese, softened in the microwave, one small jar of drained pimentos, two to three cups of grated American cheese, and three to four tablespoons of sweet relish. Blend the cheese and pimentos and then stir in the cheese and relish. I also add a cup of Miracle Whip to give it a sweeter taste. Both recipes keep in the refrigerator and are fast snacks.

I didn’t mean to be so hateful about the garbage, but I really don’t care. It’s nothing to me because I’ll take care of my own garbage. It’s not just me; it’s a lot of people. There just aren’t any places to set your garbage bins on property you don’t own. You can’t control what happens to your garbage when you have to set it down the road. And I am not picking up the garbage after the animals get into it. There are going to be problems when six to seven households start putting their garbage in the same place.

.

Congratulations to those who worked and voted for selling alcoholic drinks inside the city limits of Jenkins. You are to be commended for your efforts. Shame on the Christians for letting this happen. There are 11 churches in this area, and I am sure there are hundreds and hundreds of members. How could the no votes have been so low? The answer, we didn’t try to stop this. I am embarrassed with our Christian community. Most of all, I am ashamed of myself. I didn’t even vote. Do you think God is pleased with us?

.

To my love: I loved you many, many years ago and I’m still in love with you. I have the good sense to know that you did not live me and I know you are not in love with me now. You absolutely broke my heart into small pieces and now I have a patched heart. Scars remain. You couldn’t help that your love for me just wasn’t there. I just wanted you to know that memories do not go away. Sometimes they just weigh on the heart. And again, they are just memories. My memories. I am lucky to have these bittersweet memories. Truly, my memories.
