Here is the latest episode in the ongoing saga from the romance capitol of Kentucky. It seems that there are two gentlemen in Jenkins competing for the affection of a very attractive divorcee. She is pretty, smart and wealthy. They have fought two fistfights and the winner is yet to be determined. They have agreed to a third and final grudge match to determine the ultimate winner. The winner will get the divorcee and the loser will get the queen bee. She is old, wrinkled and broad across the rump.

Hey, Christine. This is Beulah Ison. Thanks for writing happy birthday. I don’t know where you are going to church, but you aren’t going to be satisfied until you go make it right, honey. I’ve talked to you about it before. Call me again. I’d like to say to anybody and everybody in Whitesburg that I left there because of my health. It wasn’t because of anything my son is said to have done to me.

.

I just wanted to say I really appreciate all the heart Mr. Daniel Dotson and his secretaries put into my case. If anybody needs a good lawyer in Letcher County or surrounding areas, you need to contact Mr. Dotson’s law office. They don’t push your case to the side. They start on it that day. They really took care of me and I would recommend him to anybody. Thank you for all of your help. From T.I.

.

I was watching the news and they showed that a certain scrap dealer in Letcher County was buying copper from dope heads around here who steal it and sell it. Now Danny Webb wants to do something about it. That’s after Harley Jack Slone gets 10 years. If Mitchell Wright hadn’t bought the stuff, Harley wouldn’t have sold it.

.

Hey, goggle eyes. Did you get your check this month in time to buy your 19-yearold boyfriend some drugs? You need to spend your money on your personal appearance. You sure aren’t as pretty as you and your mother think you are.

.

The goat and animal poop is stinking everything up in the Twin Bridge area. This needs to be cleaned up. Maybe the health department can help.

.

Was it really necessary to make such a big deal over $20? What did that prove?

.

It is a shame that people are tearing down these 9-1- 1 road signs. My hunting buddies and I put 10 cameras out on some signs. If we catch you, we’re going to prosecute you.

.

I have some information for pudding and pie. Old pie crumbles and old pudding runs thin. Oh what a mess you sisters are in.

.

How do people get by with working while on Social Security disability? I saw some fellows above the mouth of Cowan working on a house. I see them out working all the time and I’m wondering if there is a way I can do that.

.

Graduates of Jenkins High School Classes of 1955, 1956 and 1957, in the event you missed the class reunion held August 23 at Pine Mountain Grill, you missed a very enjoyable, fun evening seeing fellow classmates and renewing friendships. The food was delicious and the program afterward was enjoyable. Thank you for those on the committee for the excellent planning.

.

Whoever keeps commenting to the blonde in the black car, we don’t know who you are talking about. What is her first name? Where does she live? At least provide more details about her.

.

I go to the Boone Fork Senior Citizens Center every day. The other man has been driving his big car. I wonder if he thinks that will get him more hugs or what in the world he has up his sleeve. I’ve been getting a few hugs, but he is getting more.

.

Yeah, McConnell has done such a great job of stopping Obamacare and the war on coal we should reelect him so he can keep letting us down.

.

To the person who keeps commenting and whining about somebody who won’t forgive them and they have demons and why they want to trap them in darkness: It looks to me like you are the one with the problem. You keep talking about somebody else, but that person must not care and be happy. You are the only one who isn’t happy.

.

I’d like to know why a certain Jenkins worker can miss two or three days of work a week and they do not fire him. Please answer that for me, Mayor G.C. Kincer.

.

Jenkins Mayor G. C. Kincer says he has been assured by the Kentucky League of Cities that he is not in violation of any residency requirement while he lives temporarily in nearby Pound, Va., while trying to obtain another home in which to live in Jenkins. Kincer has been told he must have a new residence in Jenkins by the time all legal proceedings involving his divorce have been made final. What Mayor Kincer failed to mention to the editor of The Mountain Eagle and to the League of Cities is that his divorce is final. He has remarried the city clerk. He hired his ex-wife to be the new city pool manager. So where does nepotism come in here, city council? Stand up to Boss Hogg. This is not Hazzard County.

.

A recent comment in Speak Your Piece mentioned McDonald’s. By all means let’s not leave Dairy Queen out. While the food is good at Dairy Queen and the place is clean, the attitude of some needs to be improved.

.

I have been in love with the same woman since June 16, 1995. Unfortunately it did not work out, but I cannot seem to get over her.

.

There’s a lot of dogs up in Fleming on Back Street and Front Street. If people don’t put them up they will all be dead soon. I mean it. I’m tired of having to fight off dogs every time I go for a walk.

.

I want every one of you to give serious thoughts about being an organ donor. If you are dead and gone, you can help someone with eyes that have never seen, or a heart that has never beat right or kidneys that have never hurt right. I love those 24 who have signed up last week to be organ donors and it is such a good thing. It’s all on account of that young man who died and was an organ donor. I think it is so precious.

.

I’d just like to say to start with that I don’t live in Letcher County, just close to it. I’d like to know what you can do when you call your local sheriff and report a drug dealer and they know about it, the state police know about it, but yet nothing gets done about it. It has been going on for 15 years. Who out there can do something about before someone gets killed over a bad deal in your front door? In anybody has any ideas, please comment in next week’s Speak Your Piece.

.

I’ve known the mayor of Jenkins for 40 years and he’s been married three times since I’ve known him. He knows he is the mayor and he is living in Virginia and is still the mayor. Isn’t that wrong? That’s bad wrong.

.

Isom Days is always the same. The only thing new we have seen come to Isom so far has been Subway.

.

This is a test. Answer the following questions: 1. How long is a piece of string. 2. Where does a circle begin and end? 3. How many steps is it to your front door? 4. How many seconds are in 100 years? 5. Who wrote the book entitled “Up There At The House”? Now grade yourself according to how many questions you answered correctly. All five, you are a genius. Four, you’re highly intelligent. Three, you need help. Two, you are an idiot. One, you are a moron. Zero, too bad. This is the Midnight Phantom. Good luck.

.

I just wanted to say happy birthday to the angel on Camp Branch. You are still keeping my heart beating.

.

What in the heck is wrong with you people in Letcher County? Why do you allow the officials to double the inmates in the Letcher County Jail? They are sleeping on the floor. And why do you allow Jailer Don McCall to charge 25 cents for a little pack of ketchup and mustard and 50 cents for a little cup of coffee? Why do you allow the jail to deny the inmates toilet paper? I don’t understand you. And while we are on the subject, why do you allow Judge Sam Wright to double the sentences of those who are accused of and/or convicted of having a joint of marijuana? What gives him the authority to throw someone in the county jail and authorize the jailers to put them in solitary with no contact with other inmates. This is not the right of Wright. Once he turns over inmates into the custody of the county jail he has no further authority. I don’t understand why you people put up with it. It is time for Letcher Countians to stand up. Make your play. You don’t have to put up with this. I’m not from Letcher County. I wish I were or I would do something about this bull.

.

A certain woman has three children, one boy and two girls. The boy was born out of wedlock. The two girls are by her current husband. The oldest girl was treated very badly by her mother. Social workers had been called twice on how the mother treated the child. The mother considers herself to be the pillar of society, but the truth will stand when nothing else will. If the person who mistreated her daughter reads this, she will know that not everyone has forgotten how she mistreated her oldest daughter.

.

Lizzie Elswick, you were a beautiful and precious woman here on earth. You were the most stunning and beautiful person I ever saw in death. Now you are at rest in the most beautiful tomb ever. You were loved deeply.

.

I don’t know who the old man is driving the creamcolored Toyota truck coming off of Pine Mountain, but state police or somebody needs to check him out. He has run us off the road twice. I think he is drunk.

.

The new pool at Jenkins is really nice and something for everyone to enjoy and be proud of. I applaud those in charge for requiring the female lifeguards to wear one-piece swimsuits.

.

Our sympathy goes out to the former Sharon Miles’s sisters and brother, and her immediate family as well. They’re our distant relatives. Very sorry to hear that. Thank you, Stanley D. Pack.

.

This is concerning the Lexington Herald-Leader’s front page article dated August 21, that reads ‘ACLU warns about Bible distribution.’ Here is a warning to the ACLU: Jeremiah 6:19: Hear, o earth: behold, I will bring evil upon this people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not hearkened to my words, nor to my law, but rejected it. When you reject the Word of God, then you have rejected God. Our nation has listened to the lying ACLU and our nation is dying because ungodly men have rejected God’s laws. What the ACLU is trying to do is twist our constitution and try to take away our freedom of religion. The ACLU is openly discriminating against Christian people here in America, and our cowardly politicians have no backbone to stand up for the American people.

.

To my stepchildren: I am sorry for any wrong I have done. I’ve been told things I should have kept to myself, that it wasn’t my business. There were things said in here that I did not say, though it appeared I did. So knowing that, I’m also aware you may not have said a lot of things. A lot of things in here to me were flat-out lies I don’t believe for a minute. It has been brought to my attention by close family members that you were taught to dislike me, but when you are an adult, you can rise above that and be your own person. I understand that it must be hard for her to be abandoned. They didn’t care, but that’s not my fault. She blamed me for everything, which was silly. I’m trying to live right. I have now turned her over to God, but to you, I’m sorry.
