Speak Your Piece

Tell us what’s on your mind. No need to give your name.

In addition to the telephone and the U.S. Mail, The Mountain Eagle accepts comments to Speak Your Piece by electronic mail. Our address is: mtneagle@bellsouth.net

This is in response to the person or persons who commented about Isom’s ‘Old Man’ and his junk: To correct your inaccurate and ignorant statements, the old man to whom you refer owns that junk, and all the property under it is owned by him and has been owned by him for 60 years. He pays many taxes with no tax breaks whatsoever. The EPA frequently inspects the disposal bins, etc., for oil and fuel to be recycled and insures nothing is disposed improperly in the ‘ditch’ or the creek behind it. As far as the road being blocked, this road is not Highway 15, jackass. It’s old Highway 7, or better known now as Isom Drive. There are at least two or three other ways to get into and out of Isom, which has only two small businesses, both of which you can get to without going near the scrap yard — unless you must pass by to get an ice cream that I’m sure you don’t need that badly. This is a legitimate scrap yard operated by a selfmade entrepreneur who pays taxes and has been in business at this same place since 1957. It’s funny you never hear anything about any of the other scrap yards in the county. And before you shame the two magistrates for looking out for the citizens of Isom and surrounding areas, make sure you know what they are voting against and why.

To the reader who commented about God’s critters being put here on Earth: Amen. There are animal abusers out there — sick individuals — and unfortunately our tax dollars are supporting them and feeding these deranged leeches of society. However, The Mountain Eagle has the exclusive right to choose and select what it wants to print. One has to wonder why it chooses to print this over and over again. I’m sure the paper doesn’t print a lot of comments that are submitted. Like I said, there are sick individuals in this world.

(Have you ever thought that replying to comments by those you label as ‘sick individuals’ only adds fuel to the fire? Just wondering.)

Lil bear: I miss our coffee giggles in bed/ lazy breakfasts with naps for dessert/ your low happy growls in the dark/ the stars peer through the trees/ slipper moon smiling at us/ the creek singing our lullaby/ feeling you there warm when I reach for you./ It’s never alright./ Come home.

.

This message is to the metropolitan Neon Police Department: There is a teacup Chihuahua running around on the back road in Fleming. If it attacks my pit bull or bites one of my children, I am going to sue. I hope I won’t have to do this, so please be aware of the dog.

.

To the people in Whitesburg at ARH: I think it is a dirty, rotten shame that they would take someone else’s word, which are a bunch of lies, and put somebody off the property. I think they need to shut down the Whitesburg hospital.

.

To a certain person: You are a liar, thief and crook. You stole $1,000 worth of appliances from me, and I have proof on my phone. You better pay me immediately or I am going to the police and I’m going to take you to small claims court. You know my telephone number. If you don’t, look it up.

.

They sure have messed up ‘The Swap Shop.’

.

I agree with the caller who said we should take the gays and drop them off at an island. Along with them, I say take the foreigners there, too.

.

I believe money does talk. They say you can get out of anything if you have plenty of money.

.

Somebody needs to investigate a recent incident where a so-called boss or manager bars two women who he says he caught doing drugs.

.

This is to the woman who is taking care of an elderly lady with cancer: You aren’t doing it for her. You are doing it just to get praise for yourself. You are not doing it for her. You need to straighten up, because God will bring you down for that.

.

I don’t understand why everyone doesn’t just quit smoking. It’s horrible for you and you know it is and you need to stop.

.

All you see in Speak Your Piece is people complaining. ‘Letcher County doesn’t have this.’ ‘Letcher County won’t do this.’ ‘Letcher County is never going to change.’ ‘Letcher County won’t change by itself.’ As for myself, I don’t care what Letcher County’s got. I don’t care what Letcher County is going to get. The only thing that matters to me is the good Lord Jesus. Just give me Jesus. Letcher County can do what it wants.

.

This is to everybody in Letcher County: Let’s clean up the porches this year. We live in such a beautiful area. Let’s try to extend it out to our lawns and roadsides.

.

Did the mayor really move back to Jenkins or is it all just a hoax?

.

Maybe it is some time for some good news. I just overheard a man in a church in town tell a woman that in three months he was going to have a place where you could have your loved ones cremated. A crematory would be really nice in Letcher County. Let’s just hope that since it was inside a church house that the truth is being told.

.

This is the Harley guy in response to the person who responded to me in last week’s Speak Your Piece: While I’m not particularly insulting big women, I don’t want a big woman on my $30,000 Harley because I don’t want it broken down. Get my drift?

.

Who takes care of the American flag next to the veterans’ memorial in Jenkins? It shouldn’t be permitted to be in such bad shape.

.

Concerning the Whitesburg ARH, I will pray for them. God bless them. If something happens to me, take me to the Hazard hospital or the Pikeville hospital. I do not want to go to the Whitesburg hospital.

(If you’re going to criticize the hospital so strongly, you should explain why.)

.

I read in the newspaper where the state inspectors are going to start inspecting these mines twice a year. That goes to show you right there that the state has no regard for human rights. They would rather have the money. I don’t know what is going on with that. You talk about lives lost. You start letting them inspect mines only twice a year you will see a big difference. I worked in the mines for 17 years and I know what goes on inside there. I know they are going to say just let it go and we’ll come back to it later and then six months later the top is still ready to fall. Just let the inspectors not do their job and see what happens to human lives. They better stay with the program.

.

I think a certain auto body man is really getting burnt in the trade with a certain inspector.

.

To a woman in Coon Hollow: If you only knew how the man you have been with for many years has lied to you. If the chance comes along again, believe me, he will do it again. He and the girl he was with don’t know that they have been caught. Just hang loose. You will know soon.

.

You can always throw your unwanted or unneeded prescription drugs in the garbage to keep it out of our water supply and away from children. Always double bag it.

.

This is to the woman who had bypass surgery and is having problems: I am a natural health consultant. If you will leave your name and phone number at one of the libraries in Letcher County, I will try to get in touch with you, because I’m pretty sure that I can help you. I’ve done this for a long time.

.

Everybody needs to get out and vote and get all of the lazy people out of the courthouse in Whitesburg. They won’t do anything to help us.

.

Kentucky River Community Care Inc. Breathitt Solutions needs help. The organization needs people with experience, not people with college educations that just assume things. Letcher County’s judge needs to wake up and give people a choice in whether they want to take Breathitt Solutions’ rehabilitation, pay for drug tests, or jail. Just sending them to KRCC doesn’t help when they don’t want or need it. Instead of Breathitt Solutions there are other solutions to getting these drug- and alcohol-addicted women help. Don’t just send them there because the drug tests are paid for by their children’s insurance. This is ridiculous and outrageous. People change when they wake up.

.

This is the old cat killer. I am sick and tired of listening to your old rooster crow. I want you to do something with your rooster. It keeps me awake all night and I have to get up early and go to work. That stinking thing crows and crows and crows. I am sick and tired of listening to your rooster crow. You better do something with that rooster.
