Speak Your Piece



Call 633-7508 from 9 am Tuesday to 9 am Friday.

To a couple on Turkey Creek: It is a shame that you have the habit that you do. You live in a trailer with no power, water, electricity or sewage. You borrow all of that off your husband’s father. It seems to me that your husband, who works every day, would pay to have that stuff paid for and put in. I am so surprised that someone hasn’t already contacted social services on you and you having your child living like that. Something needs to be done with you two. You need to get off the drugs and start taking care of your kids.

.

This is to the drug-head thieves in the Goodwater Falls apartment complex: I know who stole my tools and chainsaw from me, and as far as I am concerned you better watch out. You are being watched. If I see you near that truck, I am going to shoot and let the cops sort it all out. So the best thing you can do is watch your back.

For the last three weeks I’ve read posts in Speak Your Piece from idiots, disappointed Bible thumpers, and other generally backward people from Jenkins bitching about a legal, democratically-conducted election that helped to drag Jenkins into the 20th century. Not 21st, but at least the 20th. These whiners are the same ones who have opposed every attempt to move Jenkins forward that has been made in the last 50 years. And Bible thumpers, you superstitious fools, your little town has become a sewer with one of the most astonishing rates of drug addiction in the United States while you celebrate your imaginary friend. But please, don’t let me take you out of your comfort zone to the point that you might actually think for yourself. Just go ahead and keep your head where the sun never shines and always look backward.

Dr. Rand Paul said he never turned away a patient because of the patient’s lack of money to pay. I never knew of a doctor turning away a patient because of lack of money to pay. It’s always the receptionist. The doctor said my wife’s surgery could be scheduled as soon as she paid him several hundred dollars. The surgery is only necessary if I have the money to pay the doctor.

Johnson’s Fork was the most beautiful hollow in Letcher County until a certain person moved in it. Now you can’t get through the house or land because his place is so junked up and nasty. It’s just sad.

.

Restaurants should start making workers have a physical before they can work, because I know a woman who had hepatitis who is working in one of the restaurants in Whitesburg. They should make them have physicals when they work around people’s food.

How do I fix chicken? I wrap about eight chicken breasts up in the oven in tight tin foil and bake them for about an hour and a half to two hours. I then put two big bottles of barbecue sauce on them and let them cook for about another hour. I then put them on the grill and baste them in more barbeque sauce. Nothing beats that good light smoky or charcoal flavor. You don’t want to overpower your food with barbeque sauce. I love Sweet Baby Ray’s barbecue sauce.

.

I just went over a small portion of the trails around Fishpond Lake. I want you to politicians to know you all have done a fine and wonderful job. I am impressed. I would love for you to get behind this and make it bigger and with the landowner plus Payne Gap Lake. The four-wheelers can be to Letcher County what the skiing industry is to Aspen, Colorado. Everybody can make money. Don’t quit there. Thank you for doing the good job that you did.

.

If a certain woman doesn’t quit chit chatting among the workers in the lunchroom here she won’t have a job next year. She can count on it, because they are onto her.

.

Late one night I was looking out my window and I saw a large, ugly man dressed in a policeman’s uniform looking in my window. I still don’t know if I was dreaming or if it was real.

.

I just want to thank Stanley Pack for a wonderful job of mowing the cemetery. I think every person who has a family member in that cemetery needs to pay him. Most of us do, but there are some who don’t. He is doing a wonderful job.

.

I hope all these pilladdicted men in Letcher County keep up their bad habits. Since their pills won’t let them perform properly, it makes it real easy to find a pretty married woman to go out with. Think about it, dudes. While you’re out searching for your next pill I might the one on the phone setting up a date with the wife you can no longer please. You dope heads are pathetic. I don’t think it’s really cheating if a wife goes out on her dope-addicted man.

Have a good day. I love you. Also, Jesus loves you.

.

I could go to heaven with Jesus. With things the way they are I would rather go to hell with you.

.

Customers should beware of a certain gas station in a rural area of the county. They never have any gas and there is water and air in the tanks.

.

I want to wish Terry Banks a happy birthday June 8.

.

A million times I needed you. A million times I cried over you. In my heart you hold a place that no one will fill. You are my angel and I love you.

.

I don’t see how people work for a certain man as grouchy as he is and the way he curses his workers in public. He pays $6.50 an hour and works you like a dog.

.

The brain drain we were warned about in the sixties and seventies has really hurt Letcher County. The smart natives continue to leave in droves when they turn 18 or graduate college, leaving us with nothing but fools and imbeciles. Don’t take my word for it. Just look around. Look at the business and political leadership we have now compared what we had in the sixties and seventies. It’s dire, people.

.

I do odd jobs and my numbers are 335-1660 and 632-2925. You can get in touch with me at these numbers.

.

I want to thank the nurses at Letcher Manor Nursing Home and the ones who do the therapy for the great job they did for my wife. They really try at Letcher Manor Nursing Home.

.

I, too, am a person who has loved someone for years and years without them being with me. I’m not even sure he knew how I felt way back then, but I know that I will never love anyone like I love him even though I have been married to someone else for 40 years. I feel like I have wasted my life and to this day I feel like the other caller to Speak Your Piece. It really does weigh on your heart. He doesn’t live here anymore and I don’t know where he is. I talked for a few minutes with his sister one day, but I only got to ask her how he was doing and she said he has some health problems. I pray that before anything happens to us that he would know how I feel even though he may not feel the same way. It may be funny to him, but God as my witness I will die loving this man.

The Whitesburg Swimming Pool charges only $3.50 a day and I actually hear people complaining about it being too much? Why do people here always want something for nothing? Is it because so many of them grew up in homes where the parents drew a government check instead of getting out and getting a job?

.

Enjoyed the good conversation Saturday night. Sorry I had to cut it short, but I had company at the door. Maybe there will be more next time. I’ll talk to you later.

.

We have a new mayor and he is setting a bad example by telling people to clean up around their homes.

.

This is a couple calling from Pratt Branch. The only thing I am going to say is we have a great set of neighbors down below us and we appreciate every one of them.

.

This concerns a man on Flat Gap. His wife is going around saying he slept with my daughter. That is not true. He did sleep with me, but he just didn’t tell his wife. He told me that his wife did not satisfy him and is no good. If she does not watch herself someone is liable to call in and report her for getting S.S.I. She better not go through with her threats or there will be hell to pay, because I can cause a whole lot of trouble for her.

.

Why does Carr Fork Beach close every day at 5 p.m.? That is when people would want to go to the beach. Do they have lifeguards? Don’t you think 5 p.m. is a little early to close the beach?

.

This is to a certain preacher: I don’t go to church, but to my knowledge a preacher isn’t supposed to spread gossip or talk about his church members.
