I want to thank Reflections, the cops and everybody that had a part in putting that scumbag from California back behind bars. Thank goodness everything turned out okay. You people truly are heroes.

.

I’d like to address this to the manager of Wendy’s in Whitesburg: Your restaurant is fabulous, both with the cleanliness and the food. However, you need to remind all of your employees to wash their hands after going to the restroom.

.

To a certain person: I should have known it would not work out the second time I met you — when you tried to engage in a threesome with me and a 17-year-old on the high school football team.

.

Why do people in the U.S. government talk of entitlement cuts? Why not talk of foreign country cuts? Social Security is the best thing this country ever came up with to help the disabled and those who have worked long years, etc. Put the cuts on foreign governments and put the money in Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare.

.

Whitesburg Middle School is the only school I know that has children heartless enough to make fun of cancer.

.

Why in the world did we blow so much money on a recreational center when severance tax income is falling so drastically? Who is the father of this disaster? Can’t people recreate on their own — without soaking the taxpayers?

.

This is to the freeloaders on Craft’s Colly: Poor, pitiful you. You get mad at people because they won’t give you their pain pills to pass your drug test. She gets 120. Her husband gets 160 and still they want to freeload off of others.

.

Belated happy birthday to a dear friend on January 17. Signed, always your baby. Bye.

.

I wish that girl who is on Facebook whining and crying and acting all big about doing a snow dance and wishing it would snow would move to Alaska. She lives about a mile from work. I wish she could be considerate to those who have to drive a little farther to work. And with her opinion on gun laws, after she is through in Alaska, she should move to California.

My name is Chris Yonts. We were at the fiscal court meeting on January 21. We signed our name in. We were behind a few people. My friend named Jimmy Hall came in behind me as well as his girlfriend Elaine Tanner. We all three had signed in. We were going to tell Judge/Executive Jim Ward how good a job he had done and were going to talk about a few potholes that need fixed, but Judge Ward would not call our name. I think that is so rude of the fiscal court. They are taking our freedom of speech. We live in America. Mr. Ward needs to wake up and realize that.

.

Mainstream media, bought and paid for. What a shame that is.

(With all due respect, who bought and paid for what you define as the ‘mainstream media?’ Do you ever question the validity of what’s being fed to you by Internet bloggers, TV commentators, writers for trade newspaper and magazines, etc. — on the right and the left — who gain their notoriety largely by blasting that bogeyman known as ‘mainstream media?’ What differently would you do if you were a member of the ‘mainstream media?’ How would you end what you refer to as a ‘shame?’)

.

I heard our county judge proudly stating that the recreation center was such a success that they had been able to take some of the $60,000 they ‘made’ to help the senior centers. That’s kind of a funny view, considering that we at the same time are paying $600,000 a year for 30 years for that rec center. Think how much more good that $600,000 could do than $60,000, if we didn’t have that big debt facing us until most of us are dead.

.

There is a certain woman who got her house through a divorce. I don’t think she will ever be happy even if she sells out and moves somewhere else. She may have a house, but she will never have a home because there will always be a black shadow wherever she goes.

.

My hat is off to Letcher County Judge/Executive Jim Ward and anyone else who was instrumental in getting this magnificent recreation center up and going. The ignorance shown by some of you people who continue to complain about this gift to our county in Speak Your Piece each week just leaves me dumbfounded. At the most, we have only a few more years of profitable coal mining in our county and we must recruit other industries. One thing we have that our neighbors don’t is this awesome facility that actually will end up saving taxpayer dollars because it keeps people in shape and out of the hospital. As Dr. Breeding told the fiscal court, the recreation center is also a tremendous recruiting tool for intelligent individuals and businesses who are looking for a place to either set up initially or relocate.

.

To a teacher at LCCHS who said if you hate Obama you should move: There is something wrong with you. You are a teacher and to act like that you are so ignorant. And we all know why you would like Obama, huh?

.

I thought Facebook was a great thing when it started out. Now I’m thinking about cancelling my account, since all it seems to be anymore is a bunch of idiots giving their ill-informed opinions about things they appear to know little about and won’t take even a few minutes to research. I would be ashamed to pass around some of the lies and ignorant statements I’m seeing from some of my Letcher County friends I once held in high regard. As the old saying goes, it’s better to keep your mouth shut and let people think you’re a fool instead of opening your mouth and removing all doubt. It’s a shame I have to come to Speak Your Piece to tell my friends how I feel, but I’m afraid I would hurt too many people’s feelings if I let them know how I feel about their ignorance to their faces on Facebook.

.

When is the next election for the mayor of Fleming- Neon? Everyone, please get the current mayor out of there. We need a change. There are clothes thrown up and down the street from one establishment with dogs lying on them. And that’s some health department we have. Somebody needs to come in and close this give-away place down.

.

Just got some disturbing news concerning my wonderful brother asking all Facebook friends for special request that God will put a hedge around him protecting him from the work of Satan. JyG.

.

So there is a law that allows the fiscal court to not allow speakers who disagree with them? Well, that is a very bad law and it was very bad judgment for the court to use it to keep the Mill Creek group from speaking. This court must have no idea of the public’s opinion of them and their actions. If they did they would be a lot more user friendly, and they would be trying to back out of a lot of what they have done. The worst court in the county’s history, in my opinion.

.

Thank God they finally got the rat out of Harrison Branch in Isom.

.

What about a certain woman in the Isom area lying on someone else about a dog?

.

What good does a certain bus driver get out of lying? I know, the student knows, you know and God knows. The student was waiting at the bus stop and you even met the grade school bus then you came on up and passed the student right up as they were standing there waiting for you to stop. It’s not right to make a student tardy or to even miss school if they have no other transportation. Students shouldn’t even have to use their own transportation when it’s the bus driver’s fault. It shouldn’t matter if you’re just down the road or a hundred miles away. If a bus driver passes a student up they should be made to come back, but yet this driver refused. This makes the third time so far. I know no one is perfect. I know students are going to be passed up from time to time, but the driver should at least come back if it’s their own fault. Why are some — not all, but some — bus drivers such a grouches? Thank you.

.

I wish whoever owns this wolf dog in McRoberts that is terrorizing our cats would put that dog up. He is a nuisance and tears up our garbage. He gets out and comes right up here. He is a big dog. He looks like a wolf. We are tired of it. We are afraid he is going to bite one of our kids. He is such a big dog. We don’t have a dog warden who would come and make them put him up. He is terrorizing the community. He just tears up everyone’s garbage. I wish they would put him up before he kills our cats or bites one of our kids.

.

This is in regard to the W.L. Sumpter property that is being offered for sale in The Mountain Eagle. The public needs to be informed that this is not in agreement with all of the heirs and that the property is undivided and that no one has a deed to any specific portions of that property.

.

We’re just wondering how many more times they are going to let a certain person out of jail before he gets on drugs and kills some innocent kids or himself. He has been in jail about five times, and every time he gets in there they let him right back out. I guess he will have to end up killing himself or someone innocent. This has just been on my mind.

.

People need to stop at Van and look at that guardrail. Look what drugs can cause. Just think if that were your family or children in there. They need to put a stop to this drug dealing in Letcher County.

.

I’m sitting here in Jenkins wondering how far we can go as a city. We only have two police officers to police the whole city. Meanwhile, rumors are running rampant. Sounds to me like this is the Harper Valley PTA all over again.

.

A lot of gun owners around here are upset that our Second Amendment rights are being infringed upon. Almost every country that gave up their guns, the government went in and committed genocide. I was not aware of this. This is not a political issue, but a Constitutional issue. This is a strong Democrat voter for a long time. Obama is not your run of the mill Democrat. It’s not just the guns they are coming after, they are coming after a lot of our freedoms. I am looking to find a place in town to meet to form a coalition of pro-gun advocates. We need to stand with Denny Peyman, the sheriff of Jackson County.

.

I am a lifelong resident of Jenkins. It is unbelievable what is said to going on here. We should rename it Sin City, Kentucky. The people of Jenkins know.

.

Hey. I planned to move to Jenkins, but now it is Sex City. No thank you.

.

I think the money for the senior centers and other worthwhile programs is going to be drained by the recreation center. Not many of us use that place or have even been there but the senior centers are like a second home for a lot of us. We are going to have to make a lot of sacrifices that don’t make any sense to me. When the first center is closed this fiscal court is going to hear about it.

.

To the sorry people who keep complaining about our recreation center: Why don’t you join us who appreciate what we have for a walk on the walking track or a treadmill? How about a ride on one of the stateof the-art stationary bikes our county has provided for us. Ever thought about getting off your lazy behind and getting out to go bowling? The recreation center is here to help keep you from getting old, fat and decrepit. It will help you if you let it. I have to wonder what people from healthy communities elsewhere must think if they reads comments from people complaining about a recreation center located in a region known for its laziness in a state that is known for its ignorance and unhealthiness. Some of you need to ask yourselves if you are opposed to exercise or just opposed to anything that you believe makes Letcher County Judge/Executive Jim Ward look like he is doing something worthwhile. I can’t imagine any of you complainers really are senior citizens who are angry because people here finally have the chance to get in good physical shape and stay that way. I believe some of you just have an axe to grind.

.

How does a certain nurse ever show her face inside a church house with everyone knowing she took seven men to bed one night when she was pregnant?

.

Do you know why the sorry police officer came and told you he didn’t want things said about him in Speak Your Piece? It is because it is all the truth and the truth bothers him. The truth is something he knows nothing about.

.

Drugs and alcohol will sure make you do some crazy things — sometimes even making you end up in places you wished you had never went.

.

The other day when I commented on the guy who said America shouldn’t support Israel you said I said he is right. No, he is very, very wrong. I will say it again. God told Abraham I will bless them who bless you. I will curse them who curse you. And America does not want to be one of the nations against God when He comes back.

.

I don’t think it is fair that when someone has something wrong with their nerves from something happening to them when they were a kid and they have to take Prozac for it and are discriminated against and can’t adopt a baby or be a foster parent. That is not right. They are able to take care of children. They have every right to be a mother.

.

Has Isom’s three time loser disclosed to wife number four that social services once caught him cutting up drugs at his kitchen table when they came to make him stop abusing his daughter?

.

I have a heart full of love for you. I really do love you, and you are my angel.

.

To a certain business in the Dry Fork area: How do you get by with tracking mud on the highway like you do? I could understand rainy days, but all year long? It gets very slippery in that area when it rains and a few fatal accidents in that area have occurred. Maybe we can do something about this.

.

I sure would like to meet that Queen Bee that I hear about from time to time in Speak Your Piece. This is the Letcher County Drone coming at you again. As you know it will soon be springtime and you know what that means. It’s time for me to get started buzzing with all you pretty little queenies. I have been saving my energy all winter and now I’m ready to mate. That Queen Bee sounds like a very sensual woman. I sure would like to meet her so we can get together and make some sweet, sweet honey.

.

I sure would like to know how I can get hooked up on that new Jenkins water system. They must have found the proverbial Fountain of Youth up there somewhere. Some of the old men there have suddenly come alive.

.

I read in The Mountain Eagle that the Letcher Fiscal Court is now refusing to allow the people from Mill Creek who have such bad water to speak, but they let other people praise at length the financially-questionable recreation center. When any government starts to muzzle dissent and allow only praise, it is moving perilously close to a dictatorship. The Letcher County attorney may think the fiscal court can choose whom it will let speak, but it sounds like both discrimination and impingement on freedom of speech to me. If they let anyone speak, it seems to me that they must let everyone speak, however much they may dislike what they are hearing. In fact, if they dislike it, it’s all the more important that they hear it. I am becoming very troubled about the arrogance of this court and the direction it is going. We may have to put up with this increasing disdain they display toward the citizens of this county for the rest of their terms, but let’s turf them out the next chance we get.

.

Dear Speak Your Piece: Aren’t you glad that our creator is our judge and not a human being. The person who was criticizing a person for being a Christian at the present time, but did things that were not right when they were the child of the devil. Those Christians that support our present President regardless of him believing in same-sex marriages or thinking abortion for anything is okay, should rethink their salvation. These beliefs are definitely contrary to the Bible.

.

Why is it that when some heathen acts up that our pitiful politicians want to punish the innocent citizens of America? As in the case with the heathen Muslim underwear bomber that caused the American citizens to have to let the T.S.A check their underwear before they could ride in a plane, and recently when the heathen did the massive shooting. Now they want to punish the innocent Americans by trying to take their guns. The ones to blame for the mess in the school systems are the heathen ACLU liars. We need God back in our government and our school systems. America is reaping what it has sown since the Ten Commandments have been taken off the school walls. One of the commandments says ‘Thou shalt not kill.’ If our school systems would teach this in public schools then maybe kids wouldn’t grow up to be heathen murderers. The American people should remove every child from public schools until our ungodly lawmakers get the message that we want godly morals back, and we want our nation back from the heathens that are trying to destroy our nation. These politicians that are promoting the abomination of men lying with men have brought a reproach on our nation. Sin will still take you to hell.
