It must be nice to be big buddies with the game warden and live right beside of him, work and get a disabled hunting license for yourself and your whole family. That isn’t right.

This is to The Mountain Eagle. I noticed in your paper that you all said Henry Hall was an escapee from a prison. Can you tell me which one he escaped from? Then I’d like to ask if anyone has seen him lately and if they have, I would like for them to reply in Speak Your Piece.

( The Mountain Eagle didn’t ‘say’ Mr. Hall was an escapee. The paper reported correctly that Hall was listed in federal court documents as an escapee.)

I went to MCHC and signed up for health insurance through the Kynect counselor there. I want to say how quick and easy it was and what a relief it will be to have affordable health insurance. Thank you, Kynector Malinda Sexton. I recommend everyone without insurance go to MCHC and talk to one of the Kynect counselors there.

The post office in Mayking is still a very dangerous place. It happened again today. I almost got backed over trying to walk into the lobby by a car that tried to pull into the lobby. When are we going to get some relief from this stupidity?

.

I’d like to give a gobble, gobble out to Isaiah, Alexander and Jeffery from Eolia. You have a happy turkey day and may God bless your turkey day and each and every day. Hugs and kisses. Love and prayers always, Watermelon and Small Fry. We love you guys. We miss you.

I don’t believe in cult religion. Too many people are being brainwashed with such a thing.

To a certain person: I did not put that in Speak Your Piece. It seems like your so-called friends up in the hollow want to keep the feud going.

A few weeks ago I saw on the news where police in a bunch of counties had a big drug raid. I wonder why they don’t raid Letcher County. The reason why is because some of these drug dealers have some of these police paid off. These drug dealers are taking over.

We’re very fortunate to live in Letcher County and have a fiscal court interested in the improvement and welfare of the citizens they represent in their district and other districts. In regard to the City of Whitesburg’s occupational tax, there was no mention of any person who lives outside of the city and works part-time or meets only one time a month. This pertains to any and every one. The magistrates earn a payday just like everyone else. And they are no better than anyone else and they should have to pay the occupational tax. Shame on the magistrate who made the proposal that they be exempt from paying that occupational tax. If one person pays, they should have to, too. This tax is not based on the hours or on the amount received. It’s if they work in the city like the magistrates do.

.

The ongoing saga continues with the Letcher County man who lost his woman from Knott County to another man. He is such a big baby that everything has to go his way and what she wanted came next. He has such a bullish attitude. His mouth is one of his main problems. He has been said to carry a gun. I wonder if he has a permit for it. It has been said that he is back home so his mother can care for him. He needs to grow up and get a life.

I live over here in Colson where that chop shop was going on. I heard that the feds have been over here asking questions about it. If they keep on digging into it, maybe that will be another link to Jack Blair’s death. There are enough unsolved murders in this county. They need to step up to the plate and do something about these cases. The chop shop was running wide open when it got busted. Nothing ever has happened about it.

.

I guess everyone has noticed a certain house upon the hill has lights burning again outside. The woman who used to live there was ashamed to burn any lights and show her face.

.

To Baby-Wabey: Happy eight anniversary November 30. You are truly my one and only, and I cannot wait to spend the rest of my life with you. I still get butterfl ies when I think about you, and when we’re apart I am thinking about the next time I will get to see you. Thank you for changing my life and giving me something to look forward to. I love you so much. ‘It’s not about you, it’s not about me, love is all about we.’ From Muffin Mix

Sometimes when I read Speak Your Piece people are so mean they just chew people up and spit them out. There is just too much hate and drama. It sure would be nice to have more good than hate. I really like The Mountain Eagle and Speak Your Piece. I called the other day and they said they really don’t print poems. I was just wondering why. Is there really any harm to printing decent poetry? I really miss reading the wonderful poetry by CAC and others you used to put in here. Is there any way Speak Your Piece would reconsider and print poems at least every now and then? I am going to try to send a poem and I would really appreciate it if you could possibly put it in the paper, If not thank you anyway. I want to thank everyone that has a part in putting the whole Mountain Eagle together. Everyone out there have a nice day and a happy Thanksgiving.

(Thank you for inquiring. The person you spoke with may not have fully understood your question, as we generally have in the past and continue to print poems submitted to Speak Your Piece.)

Welcome home baby Logan Blake Guthrie. We love you. This poem is for you my dear sweet nephew: Here we sit/ We’ve been waiting for a bit/ The hour is drawing near/ Soon we’ll have our little boy here/ Yep we’re all here the whole crew/ We’re all waiting for you/ I can’t believe it finally here you are/ Oh my little superstar/ It’s funny how life can get you down, sometimes life can be so sour/ Oh but your love, innocence and spirit is such a strong power/ With you life is going to be so sweet/ Oh what a wonderful treat/ It’s just so amazing how we can be having a bad day/ You little ones you just turn it completely around the other way/ You make life worth living/ Every minute we’re giving/ Not a day goes by/ That we don’t want to spend with our little guy/

To all veterans who fought, and those who died for our freedom, I want to say thank you. I am proud of each and every one of you. On Veterans Day I went to the veterans’ museum and heard a certain official quote the saying, ‘All gave some. Some gave all.’ The speaker should remember that those boys didn’t just die for our freedom, but they also died for free and honest elections.

Who is the teacher from Jenkins who was caught kissing the married man?
