I noticed you all had on the front page that there was a Henry Hall that escaped from prison. How did he escape and what prison did he escape from and what day was that on? If you could investigate that a little bit, I would like to know.

.

I want to make a comment about all of the drug dealing and drug use that is going on in Neon. I have never done drugs in my life. I don’t do drugs now, but I can tell you where all the drug dealers are and who they are. If I can do that and I’m not a drug user, why can’t the police do that? It is blatant drug use and drug dealing being done on the street and it is totally out of control. Why can’t the police do something about? You can’t take your children to the park without seeing a drug deal. If there is a police department that wants to help, they should do it. The drugs aren’t hard to find.

Jenkins had a nice and safe Halloween Safe Night and I am pleased to see the city moving forward, and doing so even though they have an anchor tied to the city. Until some people who want to see real progress run for the school board and vote the Jenkins School System into the county, or the city holds some kind of referendum election, even if it only expresses their wishes to see the terrible tax burden the school system places on the city lifted, the city will never be able to achieve its potential.

.

Real estate was in my family for years and I was getting help until the person that was helping me found out that it was a sister that had filed the papers. I just want to let everybody in the courthouse know that the FBI will be down here to investigate everybody from the top officials down to the janitor who sweeps the floor. Everything needs straightening out in the courthouse.

.

My 22-year-old grandson got hurt at the Knott County Sportsplex last night. He went to the Hazard ARH, where he was treated really well, even though he has no health insurance. They explained to him that he could get follow-up care next year under Obamacare. If it wasn’t for Obamacare he would have no way of getting the corrective surgery he will need where he hurt his knee.

.

A fellow and his sonin law are going around posting people’s property they don’t even own. They are putting names on a sign that doesn’t even belong to anybody. You better stay off of my property.

.

There was an incident that recently took place at a store in Jenkins. Lady, I live in Jenkins. You picked on the wrong one. I know who did it. Everyone in Jenkins knows you and your girls so don’t go blaming other people.

.

A scooter and lawn mower were stolen in the Jenkins area. The scooter is pearl white with a blue seat. If anyone knows anything about it, please call the Jenkins Police Department. We would really appreciate it.

.

It’s an awful thing that that cop shot that young kid and killed him, but he did have the safety end cut off, which was orange. The thing about it is that the law of this land has regulated the coal miners and the coal companies and done away with their jobs, and the gun companies get more people killed in six months than coal miners and coal companies would in 25, maybe 50 years. How come they don’t regulate the gun companies and shut them down on account of safety like they do the coalmines? There is something not fair about this. They could do a better job. Shame on you politicians for not doing anything about it.

.

Why have the police slacked off on directing traffic at West Whitesburg?

.

Everybody in Letcher County wants to know if this Jack Blair case is still an active case. We just got one guy found innocent up there on a murder charge. What is going on with Jack Blair? Has it been swept under the rug in Letcher County, too, like everything else is?

.

When is the next election time in Letcher County? I’d say that would be very interesting.

.

Is there anyone out there who can tell me a procedure to stop the people of McRoberts from paying Jenkins school taxes instead of Letcher County taxes? They closed our school in McRoberts and we no longer have a school here. Most of our children up here go to school at LCC.

.

This is to the blonde who drives the black car and lives on the hill. It looks like you have been made a fool of again. Obviously, you don’t know or you don’t care. I wouldn’t do you that way if you were mine.

.

To Mr. Baseball Guru: A fielder may not block the progress of a runner unless that fielder has the ball. It would be highly unfair for a runner to not be able to try for the next base or to be thrown out there because he was tripped.

.

To the person who wrote that food stamp recipients are deadbeats: You’ve got it all wrong. Many of those recipients voted Republican to show that they’d rather help reduce our budget deficit and national debt than feed their kids better. They are real patriots.

.

Thank you City of Whitesburg for a successful and safe Halloween Safe Night. Even the rain held off, although you probably didn’t have much to do with that.

.

This is to the woman I saw leaving Walmart that about tore the door off with a shopping cart full of dog food: You probably think I followed you in the store, but I promise you I didn’t. I didn’t mean to stare. It was really a present surprise because you have never looked better. I guess it is not true that time changes everything. You still look like Princess Diana and I am still a troll.

.

It makes me mad that people like those guys who killed Dr. Acker’s daughter haven’t already been put to death. Get them off of Death Row and quit feeding them. Quit giving them all kinds of privileges that they don’t deserve and get rid of them. Instead, our government treats them like kings on Death Row and the poor people in Kentucky can’t get anything. I think it is a shame and an outrage. It is pure stupidity on the part of our government.

.

I was at a certain beauty shop and a beautician was talking about what went on at a store in Jenkins. You need to cut hair keep your big mouth shut. The owner needs to know about this.

.

To the Jenkins mayor and city council: I am appalled that you treated Eileen Sanders with total disrespect at the last council meeting. She came to the meeting as a concerned citizen and ended up being grilled about the tax initiatives to support our school system. If you have questions about our school system, why don’t you invite the school superintendent and board chairman to your meeting? You have a lot of gall trying to take away school taxes to pay for your financial blunders with the city coffers. I am telling all of you one year in advance why you were not re-elected. The citizens of Jenkins are standing in line to express their displeasure with the present administration. If 10 citizens chosen randomly were asked today if they approve of the present mayor and council, the approval rating would be 10 ‘nays’ and zero ‘yeas’.

.

Folks, we will have to labor through one more year of ineptitude of the present Jenkins mayor and city council. This time next year there will be a massive turnover of leadership in our community. Mayor G.C. Kincer will then be know as Mayor L.D. (Lame Duck) Kincer and most of the council will be known as “former council members”. The council is as guilty as the mayor for supporting his harebrained ideas all in the name of progress. Meanwhile, the next mayor, council and the citizens will be stuck with massive debts that a small retirement community cannot support. Let me wish all of you an early goodbye.

Two crazies live on Turkey Creek.

Hey, psychopath. Next time you pop me the finger, I am going to jerk you out of your vehicle, tie you to my trailer hitch and drag you through town. Listen. This is the last time that I will put up with that bull.

.

Well, it couldn’t have happened to a better person.

.

Two down, eight to go. There is a God. I can’t wait to see the rest of it.

.

How interesting things are going to get at the top of the mountain. You never quit until you got rid of me. This is going to be interesting. I am just going to sit back, watch, laugh and think about what you all did to me. The worst is yet to come, old man. You know who you are.

Last week there was a comment in Speak Your Piece about a Letcher County man who recently lost his Knott County woman to another man. The Letcher County man should have tried to keep this woman because he will have a problem finding another woman because of his bullish attitude and for being considerably overweight. He is a person who is always right and his woman was always wrong.

This happened somewhere around 1993, 1994 or 1995. I used to walk three to five miles. I would walk a while and jog a while. One day I was up there around 5 o’clock and the girls at Pizza Hut were giving me ice water and they were happy to see me. I had lost about 50 or 60 pounds. Coming back from Pizza Hut I was about 400 feet from coming down School Hill. I felt strange and I looked behind me and there was a white van and had a door slung back. It was sort of like what people use as church buses today. It was pulled off the side of the road behind me. I would look back and he would have scooted forward. I wondered what he was doing. The more I walked, the more he would move forward. I was so afraid. I would walk faster. As I looked back he was creeping behind me. I was scared. I ran as fast as I could and he was not going to catch me. He was coasting fast. I ran fast down the ridges of that hill. There was nobody anywhere. It was deserted on a Sunday evening. Back then we didn’t have cell phones like we do today. I ran down the railroad tracks past the WIFX building as fast I could. I ran all the way past Central Office and to the service station. I leaned up against the wall at the service station. I thought ‘you are not going to catch me today.’ I thought of my child. I ran to my house and all I could do was look in the mirror and thank God that I wasn’t kidnapped, killed or dead. We all have rights and we should stand up for our rights. When they are dragging you out of the bottom of the pond, what right do you have? It is plain stupid to run or jog after dark. You have the right to do it, but your family has the right to bury you too. With today’s technology, there is no reason in the world why someone would run without Mace or a cell phone.

.

I wonder how many of the critics of the Whitesburg City Council actually live in Whitesburg. It seems to me that most of the biggest whiners are people who work in the city but don’t live there and have gotten a free ride for years. Now they don’t want to pay a small portion of their income for the services they have received. And to the ones who live in the city, how many of you have ever tried to do anything to make the city better? How many of you have ever run for city council or anything else. Put up or shut up.

.

Next election I’m running for county judge. Putting my girlfriend right in the office with us. My wife won’t be jealous because she’s prettier than the girlfriend. Here comes the judge? The Pine Creek Thug.
