Everyone in Jenkins will be so happy to elect a new mayor. Jenkins deserves so much better than it has. It’s been so disgraceful. You’re on your way out, Mr. Mayor. Start looking for a new job. The new mayor will clean house at City Hall.

This is the new age Outlaw. My cousin plays for a rock band, but never calls his cousin Outlaw to see if he wants to join him. For some reason after all these years, he just doesn’t want to associate with his cousin. Well guess what? The Outlaw is getting tired of it and the Outlaw is getting ready to start riding on heads. Quote the Raven, nevermore.

One of the saddest things that ever happened to me in my life occurred a couple of years back when I went to the funeral home and looked down at a friend. I wasn’t expecting anything, just to say farewell. Believe it or not, he told me he had nowhere to go. I told him to go meet his fate — to go into the tunnel and go toward the light to his final destination.

.

To a certain lady: If you’re that guilty you need to tell people. Quit laying your guilt off on me and put it where it belongs — on yourself. You’ll get over it in time. It’s impossible to be perfect in an imperfect world. Just tell whomever you need to tell the truth. That would go a long way.

.

To the person who was commenting about an app you download that attacks a dog’s nerves to get it to shut up. I get annoyed too by dogs that bark a lot, but I would be careful before you bought into all that. If there are frequencies that can bother a dog’s nerves then you know they have frequencies that can bother a human’s nerves too. What do you think the government is going to get around to start using on us if they’re not already?

.

To the old cat killer: I think most people have evolved past they point where they think it is humorous to talk about killing and abusing animals. I for one don’t particularly like cats, but I think it’s immature to talk about killing animals. Since they can’t defend themselves, I think it’s time that people defend them, because they have a right to live too. If I find out who you are I will take steps to do that myself. So stop hiding behind Speak Your Piece and let people know who you are.

We need better security at the schools. That’s gun control — better security. We’ve all heard about the book that Miss Hillary has out. I think the title of it is ‘Broke, Disgusted and Can’t Be Trusted.’ It ought to make some good outhouse wiping paper. And if the young man wants out of the jail in Mexico, all he has to do is tell them he has switched his faith to Islam and they’ll send an escort down there to get him or trade 10 Republicans for him. I am disgusted by Washington, D.C., and the people we put there. Piss on them. God bless America.

This is concerning a call to the sheriff ’s office that appeared in ‘Police Beat:’ The caller reported watching the driver of a silver Nissan Pathfinder exchange money for pills in a blue package. That’s how things get started. The caller did see somebody exchange money, but if she had looked she would have seen the car had an Avon sign on it and the blue package was for a Father’s Day present. People need to get their facts straight before they start calling and reporting stuff. That’s all I have to say. Thank you.

.

We would like to thank Brother Willie Lamb’s family and friends for a blessed and enjoyable evening of celebrating his birthday. And the food from the 4-Star Catering was delicious. Thanks again from the Collins sisters.

.

To a certain person: I’m sure it does bother you — the truth dies hurt — but anybody that would say they couldn’t hardly keep their hands off a man who is married has something the matter with them. I guess you didn’t like the way he responded to you. He talked down to you like you were pure trash. Oh well.

.

Let me introduce you to our man of all men, our warrior for coal, the man who will save eastern Kentucky from the liberals in Washington. He is Senator Mitch McConnell, and if you don’t vote for him you are a fool who hates our great country and commonwealth. God bless America, and God bless good Christian men like Mitch McConnell. If our men are to have any chance of going back to work, we must vote to re-elect Mitch McConnell. I agree that he might have done a little more to help us in the past, but we need to let the past be the past. This is our future we are talking about. I hope Mitch schedules a visit to Whitesburg or Jenkins, as I would love to be able to say that I shook the hand of this great man and helped him save our region.

.

To Letcher County Judge/Executive Jim Ward: How many votes do you think you can get from one house at Dick’s Branch? The gravels are already a foot thick, and the poor little ditch line is not 20 feet long. It’s been dragged so many times it is perfectly clean. They’re going to vote for you. Put gravels somewhere else, OK?

.

Can you count all the angels you let go? If I were your angel now I would be on the lookout. You just might find another one. The angel you have now better not show you too much love with your age and your health condition. I don’t think you could handle too much.

.

I hope the best father in the world and my hero, Benny, had a happy Father’s Day. I love you, Daddy. T.

.

I have a question, and I hope someone out there can tell me the answer. What is the meaning to the word hypocrite — and I mean hypocrite? If anybody can tell me, I would love to know. Thank you.

.

Wishing a belated happy Father’s Day to the best dad in the world, Donald. Love, Blake.

.

I have a question for Sheriff Danny Webb. Who in your office is allowing a criminal who is participating in drug court to ride around town in a sheriff ’s department vehicle smoking cigarettes and laughing with the radio turned up? I do not appreciate this. Thank you.

.

Is is true that if you are involved in an automobile accident and the party at fault does not have insurance — or it’s a hit-and-run — and you get judgment against the party at fault in small claims court and he or she still will not pay, you can send that judgment to Frankfort and the state will not renew his or hers license until all costs are fully paid? Is that true? Thank you.

.

To a certain person: It wasn’t her, it was you. But, honey, I forgive you. God said love thy neighbor. You need to know the circumstances behind things before you put anything in Speak Your Piece. I’m your neighbor and I love you. You could have come and talked to me. Thank you.

.

To a certain lady: What comes around goes around. I am so glad you got caught cheating to get food stamps while your husband is working. Thanks.

.

In just a few more months we will have a new county judge/ executive. Oh yes we will. This is from a guy on Doty Creek who used to be one of the judge’s friends.

.

Alison Lundergan Grimes has spoken against the president’s proposed EPA rules to me many times, including last Thursday,’ Senator Harry Reid said in a statement referring to a recent fundraiser. ‘In fact, she has spoken with me about protecting Kentucky families by opposing the president’s EPA rule far more times than Senator McConnell has, since Senator McConnell has not raised the issue with me once or sought to meet with me to discuss his ideas on this issue.’ No wonder the industry has lost 18,000 jobs while McConnell has been Senator. Let’s elect someone who can work with Senator Reid and President Obama rather than just demonizing them at the expense of Kentucky.

.

To a certain mortician: Why do you disrespect everybody?

.

To the love of my life: I know that I can never take back the pain that I have caused you, but I can promise that I will spend every day of our life together making sure that you know how much that you are loved. I thank God for giving us another chance and for blessing your heart with the ability to forgive me and let me back into your life. I love you.

Sometimes the one who laughs last is the one who laughs loudest.

.

I’d like to tell my sister one thing: What comes around goes around so just always watch your back.

.

To a certain woman: Please get you some more pants so yours aren’t so tight, especially since you wear them to church.

.

When you tell lies it always comes back to you.

I’ve put it off as long as I can. I can’t put it off any longer. I want to make a comment about the prices over here in Cumberland. Gas over there two weeks ago on a Thursday was $4 a gallon. It’s $3.90 right now. A three-pound pack of bacon lacks two cents of costing $21 at a local grocery store. Tenderloin costs $6.19 cents a pound. It’s just a big rip off over there. You can drive 10 miles in every direction and things cost less.

.

People complain about what kind of meals they serve in the Letcher County Jail and how overcrowded it is. Guess what, if you hadn’t have been put into the Letcher County Jail you would be sleeping in your own bed. You’d be eating whatever you wanted. You are in there for a reason. You are not in there to be pampered or spoiled. You’ll do better next time if you are given another chance. Take that chance and do something with it. Don’t sit back and complain about it on Speak Your Piece.
