I don’t know who the mother of this little girl is. She drives a big, green car. She brings her little girl to this house at Whitco and allows the little girl to play out in that road. The way traffic goes in and out of Whitco, it surprises me that a car hasn’t hit that child. She couldn’t be much of a mother or she wouldn’t bring her down there and leave her with people five days at a time. The child is going to get killed. I wish social services would check into this. It might save the little girl’s life. I counted five days that I saw that little girl lying in the road playing. Mother, whoever you are, I hope you read this and that the social services get a hold of this.

.

How people die should be kept very private and the coroner’s office should realize this. This is very disrespectful to families.

.

How does a certain woman wait thirty-some years and then go back to being a sleaze? She has her own home now. She doesn’t have to run the streets.

.

I want to respond to the person who said we need to swing by the courthouse and shake Mr. Ward’s hand for letting their jobs go. I don’t think it is just coal miners. I think all of Letcher County needs to pat him on the back for letting the gas companies in here. They just do whatever they want and he does, too. He doesn’t care.

.

I just wanted to tell everybody over there that I still love everybody even though no nobody comes around anymore. Nobody calls. Nobody tells me about birthdays or anything anymore. I come over to see you and nobody is ever home, but I still love everybody.

.

I think the whole state of Kentucky sucks, especially the court systems down there.

.

I think we need good leadership in Letcher County. The one we have leading our county isn’t any count. Wayne Fleming would be your man.

.

I’m here to support the cat killer. I killed four this week and I’m looking for that big yellow one.

.

Hear ye. Hear ye. It’s a shame people are throwing garbage of the edge of the embankment. The poor, old crippled woman has to hire people to pick it up. They ought to be ashamed of themselves the way they are doing that poor old woman.

.

If a person who works at a certain grocery doesn’t quit following my girlfriend, he’s going to have serious problems. You are a pervert looking at 17-year-old kids.

.

If anyone needs any grass cut, weed eating or anything hauled, just give me a call at 821-6123 or 634-4573.

I have discovered in life that I have always wanted to stay on what I thought was the right side of the fence. I thought that as long as you tried the best you could and kept your house clean, kept your yard clean and kept your kids clean, that was what it’s all about. Through life I have discovered that those who you think are good, most of them are not. And the ones you think are bad, most of them are not bad. The ones we think are bad, they don’t hide anything. They are not hypocrites. And I’ve discovered that the ones you think are oh so-so, are not. So I don’t know where that leaves me. I guess nowhere, because everything I always thought I should be or wanted to be was destroyed when I found out the other people who I tried to pattern myself after and looked up to were not the people I thought they were. I guess what I’m trying to say is you might as well be yourself, because the look and the act just don’t cut it.

.

I think that Jim Ward is a pretty nice person and I think he is doing the best he can for this county. And I know this is probably weird, but I actually look forward to getting his Christmas card every year. They look like a nice, happy family. I like their Christmas card.

.

I’d just like to tell all of these people in Letcher County to watch out for some pastors who want to consolidate and get debt free. Let me tell you, me and my wife did it twice and the only ones who got debt free were the pastors. Their daughters go to big nice colleges and they have the best vehicles. They are the only ones who get debt free. I don’t think it is right for a pastor to live off of a congregation, and that is how half of them are doing in Letcher County. My wife and I know this to be a fact. We have been down that road. Please read your Bible and do what it says and talk to God yourself. Don’t let them take your money and live the lifestyle they want. They are taking you for a ride.

.

I’d just like to thank Judge Wright and Judge Mullins for getting these drunk drivers and these drug addicts off our highways. You’re doing a good job. Just keep them in jail or in a prison, wherever they need to be. A girl wrecked last Saturday at UZ, and if it had been two minutes longer she would have killed me and my whole family, the car and the baby and everything. They put her in jail and that is where she needs to be. Don’t let them out with early release so they can be back on the highways. If they hurt our families, it would be too late then.

.

This is a little bird and I hate drugs. The county jail is starting to be a family affair. There is a certain lady who was just picked up and her nephew is already down there. The cops think they got all the drugs and the money. That is a joke. All kinds of drugs and money are still hidden. They need to check out another sister and boyfriend. They were at the doctor recently getting drugs and they sell them in the wide open. They need to check an empty house trailer that used to sit across from a car lot. They need to check a chicken coop. They need to check a trailer sitting directly behind the main house. They need to check everything all over again. This is a wise little bird. Listen to me, super troopers, you need to go back down there and bust everybody.

.

I want to give my unsolicited thanks and appreciation to Magistrate Wayne Fleming and Magistrate Terry Adams. They are doing a fine job and I want the people of Letcher County to think about things. Jim Ward and Magistrate Codell Gobson are going to ruin this county. They better wake up and try to pay attention to what is going on. Wayne and Terry better keep them in check. Jim Ward is showing his true colors now that the coal severance money is decreasing. Look at the first things he is going to cut, the police department and senior citizens centers. Wake up, people.

I was calling to correct a misprint that was put in Speak Your Piece last week concerning the Jenkins City Police car that almost hit me and another car at Mayking by the bridge. It wasn’t a couple of months ago. It was a few weeks ago. This is important. He jumped out, lit a road flare and threw it in his driveway and then went inside and sat down. He left the lights on the cruiser flashing and the road flare burning and went inside. I pulled up in there because he almost hit me and it upset me. I drove by the house, looked inside and I could see him sitting down. He could have killed somebody. I don’t know if anybody is trying to protect anybody or not, but they do need to know where it happened and where he went. There was no emergency is the main thing.

.

Hi, Speak Your Piece. This goes out to the idiot who calls himself the cat killer. If you are wasting your time killing cats, you obviously have no respect for life and you obviously aren’t doing what you are supposed to do. Heads up, the devil is getting ready to get his time and it is people like you that it is all going to come back on. So perhaps one day you will be mounted and stuffed.

.

This is to someone who works at a rental store in Whitesburg. I went to school with this boy at Whitesburg High School. I don’t even think he saw me. I did my business there and went home. I had to call him. I don’t know him and he doesn’t know me. On the phone he got a little bit slick and a little bit rude. I just want to say if he ever reads this and he knows what I am talking about, he is real lucky that I am trying to make myself and my life right. I have had a rough life and have been through some rough stuff. Apparently he thinks he is better than me or whatever. I don’t know him so I shouldn’t have any beef with him at all. If it was under different circumstances I would have drug him out of there and beat him. You better watch how you treat customers and human beings in general. One day someone is going to pull your card. Your card will come up and they will put you down. Thanks a lot, Speak Your Piece.

Jesus has the cure for cancer. It’s not money or Relay for Life. That stuff doesn’t work. Jesus does work. Try and you will see.

.

To the person who called in and said they are tired of playing a certain person’s little game and they will wait for one last serious response from this person and then they will do what they feel must be done. Well, I tell you what. You come right on anytime and you do what you feel must be done and I will show you what I learned while I was on my little vacation. Anytime.

.

I think it is getting bad when you can’t even find any grass cutting jobs around this town. I think some jobs need to come into this town. You can get in touch with me at 633-3891 or 633-3973.

.

To the mayor of Jenkins: I’m just wondering your are going to have them finish hard-topping the rest of our road at Premier subdivision or just patch spots here all over the road? There are humps and bumps all over the road. Last year everybody else’s hollows got done. You said this one was going to get done. Are they just going to come up here and patch it? We pay our taxes, too? So I’d just like to know if they are going to finish it up like it should be or is this going to be left out and you are just going to do away with our city taxes?

.

This is concerning the Jenkins police car burnout. I think everyone just needs to let it go. It was innocent fun, and the policeman didn’t actually do a major burnout. He didn’t cause damage to the car. It was all in good fun to bring the community together. Everybody just needs to chill out and get along. Quit trying to find something to complain about all of the time.

Poppy is a good man. Smart and funny and never selfish. In fact, he would give the shirt off of his back. He is always smiling and giving kind gestures to let anyone know they are important. He will protect no matter the cost. He is a proud man. He makes his wife happy and comforts her always. He does many kind deeds and never expects praise for them. Friends look forward to his presence. Complain is not a word in his vocabulary. Poppy is a good man. I enjoy every minute with him. God only made one Poppy and I’m glad he is in my life. From your angel.

.

Mommy, I don’t need money and I’m not in trouble again. I just wanted to let you that you are more than my mom, you are my friend. Thanks for unconditional love. You never failed to treat me like your angel from above. Thanks for constantly pulling my butt from the fire. You never expected poor effort, so I always aimed higher. You say this is a mother’s job, but you never got a check. Not even Bill Gates’s bank account could cancel such a debt. Thanks, Mommy. I love you.

.

My baby, my son, my simple man. Sent straight from heaven. Thank God. Amen. A gift from God to handle with care. A heart of gold for you to share. A smile so big with such happiness and joy. The pride I have to have such a good boy. Just one month away from turning two I held your hand high to be strong for you. To love someone so much I never knew I could. The things I do for you, no one else I would. It feels so good to hold you even just for a second though. You scrambled down and ran away. You had to go. I wish I could be with you every second of the day but I can’t be selfish. Things just can’t go my way. I wish I could protect you from anyone hurting your golden heart. There are so many things I want to tell you but I don’t know where to start. People will tell you a lot of things, my son, and only some of them will be true. Which ones you want to believe, my son, I hope you are smart enough to know. It’s a mean world out there. Someone told me that life is all about the fight so I’m going to do my best to make sure you are strong, my son, and so you can choose wrong from right. I know it seems like I am going on and on. These things I just don’t want you to forget. Life is full of lessons. Never hold any regrets. Only remember, my only son, all you have to do is be a simple man. I love you. From mama.

.

To the people who keep calling in and saying bad things about Wayne Fleming: Listen, I’m like George Jones. Who is going to fill his shoes? Who is going to tell people where to take it and stick it? They aren’t out there. Wayne, this is a good friend of yours. We signed a contract back years ago. You are a good person. To you people out there complaining: When he is gone and they are kicking you in the teeth, you are going to wish he was back.

.

To the big boy starting his stuff again: Looks like we are going to have to get some stuff on him back in The Mountain Eagle again. He is back out there talking about the old woman again and still yet trying to bootleg and have wild women. Well, people, I am sorry for you all.

.

Attention people in Whitesburg. A local pharmacy is cheating people out of their medicine. They’re slighting them 10 and 20 pills at a time and they are stealing them from you so people be ware. This pharmacy knows who it is. Signed a mad, white woman.
