I would like to wish my husband Gary a happy 42nd wedding anniversary on Wednesday, September 11, 2013. I love you. Francine.

A piece of trash in a black Toyota stopped at Wendy’s in the drive thru Thursday evening. He pulled up away from window and then stopped and got out of his car, jerked his kid, who looked to be about 10, out of the car and started beating him because the kid had spilled his drink. There was one woman who got out of the car behind him and told him to stop beating the kid. Nobody else offered to help the little kid during the time he was getting the crap beaten out of him. Nobody offered to call the police — no help for the little kid at all other than the lady that got out and had words with him. I pray that that piece of trash gets caught before he kills those kids.

To the person that made the comment about Letcher County Jail: Isn’t the jail supposed to be a punishment for those who have done wrong? Shouldn’t it be the worst experience of a person’s life to be in jail? Come on, people, wake up. If you make the inmates comfortable and give them what they want, that wouldn’t be much of a punishment would it? They should get the prisoners up at 6 a.m. and work them for 12 hours a day to earn their food and housing. They should make it the ‘absolute worst’ experience of their life. Punish them for what they did wrong, not reward them.

.

The good people of Seco should start calling and really bugging police about these people selling drugs. You have two who really push them. They are really well known in the county and they really do their business. Something should be done about this.

.

I think Dairy Queen would have some pretty good hamburgers and cheeseburgers if they would just keep those birdseeds off of the buns. They would taste pretty good then.

.

Good to hear that so many Republican politicians are oh so skeptical of punishing a dictator for killing hundreds of his own citizens. The mystery is where they were when our last President was so determined to slaughter Iraqis.

This is for the lady who commented in Speak Your Piece: Really, she is some kind of a tramp, but thinks she is a lady. She is 49 years old, has children and doesn’t even treat them half as decent as some children are treated. She isn’t allowed to be called Mother. When she puts stuff on the Internet on Facebook she doesn’t know what she is doing. She is stupid out of her mind over men that she doesn’t even know how to talk to. First of all, she won’t answer the phone when people call because she doesn’t want her boyfriend to hear what they say to her. I don’t care if he hears or not. If he reads Speak Your Piece, then he hears what I say about her. She is 49 years old and she is nothing but a pure junkie. She will take anything anybody gives her to take to go down that throat of hers. She’ll wish she never said anything about me. That is a promise, little Miss Know It All. Why don’t you get a life and quit acting like you are 16 and start taking care of those little girls? And keep them in school.

.

This is to the ex-school teacher I used to date: I’m sure glad we quit dating, because last time I saw you in the grocery store it looked like you had gained 75 pounds. Thank God we are through.

.

I have a white Chihuahua missing from Jenkins. If you see him, please call me 276- 870-3531. Thank you.

I live on Thornton and have noticed a certain thief has returned. He steals off of everybody and gets away with it. He stole off of the old lady who got burnt in that house fire. He used to steal off of her all the time. His mother or grandmother got him out of trouble all of the time. He is back on Thornton. Beware.

.

In Syria and in Afghanistan or Iraq, yeah, they kill their own people, yet we in the United States have 8,000 abortions a day. Who the hell are we to tell those people what to do?

How many of you remember when Saddam Hussein enjoyed U. S. support in his long war with Iran in the 1980s — even after Iraq repeatedly used chemical weapons? They used mustard gas against the Iranians in 1983 with no objection from the Reagan administration. In 1987, Foreign Policy magazine reported last week, the U. S. gave Saddam intelligence that an Iranian invasion was imminent at a hole in Iraq’s defenses. ‘An Iranian victory is unacceptable,’ President Reagan wrote on an intelligence report. In response to the U. S. warning, Saddam repeatedly attacked Iranian forces with sarin, killing more than 20,000 and injuring thousands more. He later used sarin to kill more than 5,000 Kurds to put down an uprising in northern Iraq. Retired Air Force Col. Rick Francona, who was military attaché in Baghdad during the 1988 attacks, told Foreign Policy that the U.S. chose to ignore Saddam’s use of chemical weapons because Iraq was seen as the lesser of two evils. ‘The Iraqis never told us that they intended to use nerve gas,’ Francona said. ‘They didn’t have to. We already knew.’

To a certain public official: You better take a long hard look in your closet before you jump in the big run. I have some of your skeletons I will surely share. You have always been the kind of person who thinks you get it all, and it has to be your way or no way. Then when you do not get what you want, or someone disagrees with you, you start your devious ways and falsely accuse someone of wrongdoing. I no longer work in politics so you can’t get me fired like you tried to in the past. So it will all, and I do mean all, come out.

If some of these businesses down here below Whitesburg would pay their taxes we could keep our law officers at work. I know of three big businesses that have been operating for over 10 years and have never paid taxes, but they charge everybody else taxes and then take it and put it in their house safe. When the auditors from Frankfort come down here to audit them, they will wish they had run their businesses right.

To the blonde on the hill: Open your eyes. Your man is doing you wrong.

Has anyone seen our Magistrate Terry Adams actually out doing anything besides sitting at the fiscal court meetings? At least you would see our last magistrate, Archie Banks, drive up and around twice a month to check on things. I voted for Adams because of the lack of respect Banks showed for people at the fiscal court meetings, but now I see that I, and probably others, have made a big mistake. I won’t ride this horse twice, I’ll promise you that. The only vote I would give Mr. Adams is a vote for ‘Worst District Two Magistrate Ever.’

.

If I knew the old man who goes to the Boone Fork Senior Citizens Center would take my hand, I would extend it to him and I would stop these other men from grumbling so much about him. He’s a neat old man. He doesn’t show me as much attention as he should. I just wish he would.

.

No one wants ARH to leave Jenkins. They would just like the hospital reopened to have emergency care for the citizens of the area. ARH is always welcome in Jenkins.

.

Our sheriff and county judge want to complain about the county budgets, but how many times have they offered to cut their own wages?

.

It’s disappointing that the school board can’t find money to have a nurse all day long at each school.

.

To a certain person: I’m not terribly concerned about how we handle our sexual relationship. I’m only going to care about you a reasonable amount. I can’t fill the void of an ex-wife. I’m not cut out for procreation or saying ‘I love you.’ It makes me sad when you ask me to call you to listen to you do certain things. I can and would very much like to be in proximity to you in a way that makes both of us feel somewhat less lonely and hopefully more cared about.

.

If people in this county and state are tired of what is going on in government, let’s vote for someone other than Mitch McConnell. He has helped get Washington and our country in the mess that it is in. We need someone who can take over who is younger and not so rich. He doesn’t know what is really going on. He says he is for coal, but where was he when the coal started going down and is almost gone? Get someone who can bring this state back where it should be — back to the people.

.

For the person who lives in the brick house near the Twin Bridge area: Why don’t you try to clean up that old wood pile? That is the nastiest looking thing ever was, snakes and everything.

.

To the people at the American Legion: It really hurt me what you all took away from me. I sat down and thought about it and I don’t need it. I’m going to leave here because I have been treated so bad here by people that I thought loved me. I hope you all can live with yourselves. I hope you all can have a good life and can lie down and sleep at night knowing you took stuff from me when my trailer burnt and I lost everything that I had. The manager and the board members who let this happen to me, I hope you can lie down at night and sleep. I don’t need this. I can go to yard sales and thrift shops and buy it all back. Think about what you all did to me.

Here are the questions and the answers to the little quiz in last week’s Speak Your Piece presented by yours truly. 1. How many steps is it to your front door? The number of steps from where you started. 2. How long is a piece of string? From one end to the other. 3. Where does a circle begin and end? The same place. It ends where it begins. 4. How many seconds are in 100 years? Use a calculator. Multiply 60 x 60 x 24 x 365 x 100. Here is a hint three billion. 5. Who wrote the book entitled ‘Up There at the House’? At this point and time the manuscript is near completion. The book is soon to be published. I only asked this question to get publicity for the book. Now here is the revised grading scale. If you answered all five questions correctly, you are a genius. If you answered four correctly, you are highly intelligent. If you answered three right, you are fair to middling. If you answered two right, you are an idiot. If you answered one right, you are a moron. If you answered zero correctly, which means you didn’t answer any of them, then you need a kick start. This is the Midnight Phantom. I trust this has given you much pleasure. Have a good day.

Thank you, WXKQ, for our temporary relief in the sports broadcast booth, even if it was just for one game. But if you continue to turn a deaf ear to a large fan base and to most educators, then we probably need to rename 103.9 the Bulldog to 103.9 the donkey.

For someone who survives a near fatal accident, people need to praise God for that, not a person. You Christians know better than that.

.

The stealing of telephone wire and electrical wire and almost anything made of metal has caused all kinds of inconvenience and danger for our people. It’s disgraceful and a failure of law enforcement and the courts, and it’s been going on for what — three years at least? Anyone who has thought about this at all knows that it could have been stopped in a hurry by getting those scrap dealers who buy stolen stuff. If the rogues can’t sell it they won’t steal it. Well, they have indicted one of them. We’ll see how that works out. Meantime, are all other dealers being made to follow the new laws that are now in place? It seem to me the law pretty much takes their word that they’re clean. If they are all clean, how come things are still being stolen?

.

I didn’t think it could get much worse than a lot of other towns in eastern Kentucky, but Jenkins City Hall is one big circus. Why doesn’t the city council stand up to the mayor? Nepotism, mayor living out of state, and no control over spending. Who’s in charge? Does anybody have any guts in Jenkins. Jenkins is now making Whitesburg look good, and everybody knows what the financial situation is there now. I bet Jenkins is next when it comes to out of control spending and the consequences.

.

I’m calling in to the goggle eyed bobblehead who is with a 19-year-old boy. I’m going to cast a spell on you. You’ll have hair growing on your chest and you’ll have a turkey neck. You’ll look just like that mommy of yours.

.

Stepping on private property to take another’s business sign when your business isn’t doing too good is a destruction of private property and theft. Watch it there. You’ll end up in jail, or at the very least be paying for the cost of sign if you take another one from private property.

.

A certain girl has moved in with a guy and his wife. How stupid are people knowing they are both sleeping with him? Look how you are raising your children. I think this is such a lowlife thing to do.

.

Dear Lord, Are you coming back soon? The world needs you now more than ever. With Obama as President, the United States is going to be turned into hell. I’m ready for You. Please come soon, Lord Jesus. Amen.

.

Is it true that some of the workers at Walmart are buying .22 shells instead of putting them on the shelf and then taking them to flea markets and selling them for double the price? I’d like to know.

.

How can you draw Social Security and get out here and work every day?

.

This message is for President Obama: If he is going to hit Israel, go ahead and hit it. Let’s get it all over with. Let’s have the nuclear war and get it all over with. That way we won’t have to worry about anything anymore.

(President Obama and Congress are debating whether to bomb Israel? Last we heard the question was whether the U.S. needs to become involved in the situation in Syria where a dictator has been killing his own people with poisonous gas.)

.

If you ever had any doubts about how attracted to money pretty women are, just look at NASCAR. How many of these drivers could even dream of having one of these beautiful women they attract at the Sprint Cup level if they didn’t have all the money they do? The answer is very few, probably less than a handful.

.

What’s up with the Bulldog station? Every time I call, I don’t get an answer.

.

There needs to be something done about all the drug dealing being done on Turkey Creek.

.

It’s been a long week. Three tall women yelled at me in three individually caustic situations. I had a breakdown in my third disciplinary meeting. While being yelled at by one of the tall woman, I started crying and could not stop. Then I started hyperventilating and my nose began to run. So now I will combine three beers with one painkiller. Then I’m going to lie on the floor and pretend I am someone else.

.

What’s up with these burnouts in Jenkins every other weekend? On the weekends it’s just one big cloud of smoke. What do people get out of this by burning the rubber off their tires and leaving that filthy stinking stuff?

.

This is to the man whose wife just left him for another man who lives on Lakeside in Jenkins: Ha. Ha. Ha. Your day has finally come. Didn’t you and your wife split up one marriage and do a lot of people wrong?

.

What is the queen going to say when she finds out that her husband was stealing from her daddy when he was in the mining business? I’m just curious.

.

Anyone who believes there is any other way of getting into the kingdom of heaven besides repenting through the blood of Jesus Christ, being baptized through the water and living a godly life is gravely wrong and they will spend eternity in a burning hell.

.

What is the world coming to? A certain charity has gotten rid of all of the good volunteers and kept two whose reputations aren’t so good. What in the world is going on?

.

Woman, I wouldn’t have you back for nothing. That blonde in the black Cadillac is the best thing ever happened to me. I have never loved anybody like I love her and I don’t cheat on her. You’re just mad because you can’t hold her a light. Now smoke that in your pipe.

.

Remember when you yelled at me and told me I was evil just because I told you I couldn’t marry you because I was already engaged to my dog?
