The Lexington Herald- Leader newspaper delivery service in this area is ridiculous. The morning paper should be delivered in the morning and not at 10:30 a.m. or 11 a.m. or even later. The news is already out on the TV and radio by then. The Lexington Herald- Leader circulation department has been called, but no immediate response. The number to call if you so desire is 1-800-999-8881.

I just renewed my subscription for one more year. I enjoy reading the paper. I talked to Pam Walker. She is real nice. Plus, I enjoy talking to her. My name is Clayton Fields Jr. Thank you very much.

(Thank you!)

Everybody’s talking about the people who are too tight and stingy to turn their central air on during this 90-degree weather. They either go shopping or visit someone who has a good, cool house. We guess they are planning on taking their money with them when they go.

First, the government tried to play on emotions to get amnesty for illegal immigrants saying that the children are not at fault because their parents brought them here. Well, that didn’t work too good so now they have imported in the last few weeks 47,017 underage children, some under the age of 10. This country is basically broke. How can we afford to provide schooling, housing, welfare, food stamps and free medical care for all of these people?

Me and my family, especially my husband, thinks it is horrific when the neighbors kill an innocent dog because they don’t like it. He was in his own yard in his own pen. He didn’t bother anybody. He wasn’t aggressive. This has devastated his owner who never bothers anybody. The dog was just a big teddy bear. May the neighbors who killed him rot in hell forever.

.

To a certain sports marketing group: If you think you are going to run off the websites and bloggers, you’ve got something coming. Thank you.

.

If you want to find true happiness, do like I did and ditch Facebook for a while. What a relief it has been not having to hear opinions from people who don’t have a clue about what they speak about.

.

I heard a great band perform the other night — Six Miles South. Oh, my goodness. That is a great country band and everybody that reads The Mountain Eagle should check out Six Miles South on Facebook.

Whatever happened to love thy neighbor?

To State Representative Leslie Combs: This is from someone on Highway 2035, Little Cowan Road. Of all of the road improvements in Letcher County in the last 20 years, no improvement has been done to Little Cowan Road except to put a sign up that says rough roads. You can bury an 18-wheeler in holes. The road is so broken off at the intersection of 931 South the bridge is ready to go into Cowan Creek. Please take a 30-minute trip the next time you are in Whitesburg. Travel from Whitesburg along 931 South through 2035 and back down Pine Mountain to Whitesburg again. Enjoy your trip if you make it back safely. Good luck.

To Mr. Drug Dealer in Woodrock: We want you to get busted.

I think James Wiley Craft needs to hire someone else to clean the streets of Whitesburg. Whoever is cleaning the streets now isn’t doing a good job at all. They have looked the same for 60 years. The streets and sidewalks are wet with mud. You can’t walk on them with sandals without getting mud on the back of your legs or pants. If your car is clean, don’t park it on Main Street, because if you do it won’t stay clean very long. I think the mayor needs to check his employees’ work and have them do a better job. From a concerned citizen of Whitesburg.

To the sandwich artist at the local Subway: I ordered a 12- inch sandwich the other day at your restaurant and you said you only had six inches and footlongs. A foot is 12 inches, you big dummy.

.

I would like to make a comment about Dairy Queen. The food there is delicious, but they cannot get your order right. If you order a hamburger, you get a fish sandwich. I don’t know what the problem is. Maybe they don’t hear you, but I wish they would get the orders right because I do enjoy eating there. Have a good day.

.

To whoever it was that was bragging on the guy who painted the fire hydrants in Whitesburg: This is me and I want to thank you for bragging on my work. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Thank you again.

.

Why don’t you all impeach this man called Mr. President?

.

I would like to speak on behalf of animals. Here lately going from Isom to Whitesburg you will find almost 20 animals lying dead on the road. Citizens of Whitesburg just aren’t caring and I think they should be paying more attention and drive slowly. That way we wouldn’t have as many animal deaths. It is hard on their families and people should keep them locked up so nothing should happen to them.

.

I believe authority figures in the Letcher County schools should be more aware of what is going on inside and outside of our school premises such as bullying. There should be a bully watch in every school to help minimize these acts of violence toward individuals. Consider this in your faculty meetings.

This is a message for women, girls and teenagers. Boobs are not pockets. Whenever I am in the checkout line and it is a hot, sunny, warm day, please excuse my disgusted facial expression when I see you pull out cash and change out of your bra.

The breast enlargements came from Florida.

This is to the man and woman who were in Subway recently: My daughter was in there ordering a sandwich. For some reason, you and your red-headed woman felt compelled to ask my daughter if she was ‘going to eat all of that’ when she bought a sandwich and a bag of potato chips. You hurt her feelings. She is pregnant and it is none of your business. You are so lucky that I wasn’t with her. Now, if you ever see her out again and if you ever say anything else to her, you better hope and pray that you can run real quick or that you can jump in your car real quick if I am with her.

.

I sure wish somebody would throw a little blacktop, gravel or something on this road over here on Camp Branch.

.

Eat your heart out, dufus.

You people who live on West End Drive at Whitesburg, you have a bad thief in your neighborhood. I was doing some work over there and I left a brand-new fiberglass ladder on the porch overnight and someone stole it. You better keep an eye out and keep your stuff locked up because he or she will get it. Thieves are good for nothing.

.

I just want Scott to know that he is still missed at the Wellness Center. Rick is a nice guy, but Scott, you are the best and I still miss you.

The City of Whitesburg’s Fourth of July entertainment has gone downhill after Percy Sledge.
