I am very impressed by the female prisoners who are out working very hard to pick up the cans, bottles, fast-food containers and other items left beside our roads by the sorry white trash who live among us. I just counted 53 bags of trash that a crew of only three women prisoners and a female jail deputy overseeing them picked up by lunchtime on the road from the old Mayking Post Office to the bridge turning into Thornton. I did not count the bags they had collected on the road from Thornton to Millstone, but they were going at it hard. Thank you, women, and thank you to the Letcher County Jail and staff for allowing them to get out and work to make our county look better.

So where does a guy go to meet women around here besides the bars? I’m looking to find a woman after being out of the area. I may as well be looking for that needle in the haystack.

There is a blighted, deterioration and nuisance ordinance on the books in Jenkins. Some current members of the Jenkins City Council ran on a platform to see this ordinance enforced. During the council meetings, these same council members sit mealymouthed and never bring up the problem. Why were you elected? Don’t you see the problem there is in Jenkins? There is a city attorney whose job it is to see this ordinance enforced. Why not question him each meeting to see if the ordinance is being enforced?

.

There is an eyesore on Main Street, Cole Avenue, and Cavalier Drive in Jenkins. The trailer here looks like Fred Sanford’s junkyard. The people of Cove Avenue and Cavalier Drive are afraid to pull out onto the road because of all the vehicles that block their view. Also, a trailer and a vehicle are parked on a public street. When is the city going to enforce common sense and tell the owner of this property to straighten up?

.

Mr. President, we know we need money for the wall. America needs money for everything. Why don’t we just sell some more of that junky war surplus to a foreign country and build your wall? I know there is somebody out there willing to buy it. The one with the biggest stick wins. Look at North Korea. Nip them in the bud, Mr. President. You have to teach them a lesson. This negotiating … I told you when it started he was playing you. The wall will be built, but there is a better way to go about it than taking away from the military.

.

To the Harlan County Man: Why do you have so much hatred in your heart toward those who do not agree with your politics?

.

A large number of immigrants who came here have been found to have contagious diseases. They will have to be treated at your expense. Besides that, it makes a crisis in this country because they can spread it here, too.

.

What’s on my mind is a big long black-haired gal: You are a good-looking outfit, sister. Are you dating anybody? If you’re not, I am single. I love to get out. I love to ride four-wheelers and I love to barbecue. All I can say is catch me next Thursday (March 28) at Walmart at 5 o’clock.

.

The ‘rapture teaching’ began after 1832 when a young woman in Scotland dreamed that Jesus could come at any moment. Her name was Margaret Macdonald.

.

I wish Rural King would put a store in here in Letcher County. It’s a shame to have to go all the way to Pike County to buy worm medicine for our hogs and chickens.

.

Did you know that to start a savings account for a new baby you have to have a Social Security number for the baby, its birth certificate, and the baby there in person? Also, it takes a minimum of $100 to start the account. That is ridiculous.

(Welcome to 2019.)

.

What’s with those few people in normally very peaceful New Zealand? Do they think they have to be like Americans, where there is a president and an entire political party who don’t mind mass murders?

.

It’s funny how a person with a repeat felony arrest record can be running a ‘legitimate garage’ and does not get arrested for having a stolen car in his possession. Thank you.

.

To a certain young lady I shared a kiss with years ago in a blue and white Ford truck at her grandpa’s house: I have never forgotten you. All I can say is this: I have not forgotten what I saw when I came down to your house and saw a guy delivering a paper. That’s all I’m going to say about that, but I would love to get up with you and talk and enjoy the day. From what I understand, you have a lot of time on your hands. So do I.

During the year after the Parkland massacre, 107 15-year-olds were shot to death while at school. More than two a week who never even made it to Sweet Sixteen.

.

I often wondered when I was growing up if it was only poor people who got out and messed around behind their spouse’s back. I have come to find out that is not so. The City of Whitesburg has a walking track. A very good-looking blonde who is married comes there and messes with a guy from Virginia. There’s also a man in a dolled-up Ford truck that comes there and messes with a heavy-set woman.

.

To the woman who called in about the path to heaven going through another woman’s yard: Let me tell you something, honey. It would take you 40 years at least to ask forgiveness from all the women whose husbands you have slept with. And I don’t think you have that much time. Don’t you put me down and ridicule me. A Christian doesn’t do what you do. You are evil. I know quite a few of the married men you have slept with, including my husband.

.

I love the way that little lady who works in the pharmacy puts her hair on the top of her head. She’s a doll baby.

.

Dear Speak Your Piece: I would like to let the people of Kentucky know that there is no such thing as civil lawsuits in this state. It could be there are civil lawsuits just for certain people. If the truth were known it is the latter — civil lawsuits in Kentucky are just for certain people.

.

To a certain woman who just purchased a new vehicle: You lie about everything. You lied about your kids being sick so I would come up. Well I have news for you: We are never getting back together and don’t you think we are. I am happy with the woman I am with now, so please leave me alone.

.

There’s no wall you can build in California that you can’t go under, over, or blow it up. And you’re still going to have to station guards about every 20 feet, no matter what kind of wall we build.

.

After sitting here looking at what’s going on in our county, I think the magistrates ought to have to get out on their own and go around and find all the people who are not paying their garbage bill or are putting their trash in their family’s garbage bin so they can get away with it for free.

.

A man needs to go to Jenkins, Kentucky and whip the flat tar out of the hind-ends of the two men who stole from our children. Make a believer out of them and they will get out and get a job instead of living off the government. Cheese-eating, pill-snorting people walking around with governmentpaid phones in their hands; they need their butts kicked is what they need.

.

I am calling to apologize to Speak Your Piece about the song I attempted to sing about New York. I liked the word you used — excruciating. My wife and I got a big kick out that. We like your sense of humor. Your answer was funny. There are two things I’ve decided I can’t do, and both have to do with singing.

.

I was at a certain convenience store the other day and saw a certain lady in there. If she were a car she would be a Lamborghini. I would love to be her mechanic.

.

What about those 12 lowlife Republicans who didn’t back their president? What’s wrong with these people? Who’s pulling their chain?

.

To the person who said they were going to turn somebody in for drawing Social Security Disability: Maybe they worked for what they’ve got. Did you? What is to you to report anybody? Do you know what a day’s work is? I doubt that very seriously. If I were you I would keep my nose out of other people’s business.

.

I would just like to say that the UK vs. Tennessee game was an awesome game. It was a dogfight. Tennessee played a very good game, but the referees were totally unfair. There were a lot of calls that should not have been called on either team. You could tell they were in favor of Tennessee winning. If you’re going to be a referee you need to call the game fairly.

.

To certain people who live in Jenkins: If you can’t afford a garbage can I will gladly donate one to you. I am tired of picking up your garbage on my property. I am also tired of hearing your dog cry. You need to be reported to the Humane Society for mistreating that dog. If you don’t want it, give it away.

.

The blighted property at the old Beth-Elkhorn Coal Corporation shops in Jenkins continues to be an eyesore in the middle of town. The owner of this property has moved away and dares the city to do anything. There is a blighted, deterioration, and nuisance ordinance in effect. Mayor, city council, and city attorney, do your jobs and clean up this mess.

.

We thought there was no pain in eastern Kentucky from the Trump Shutdown, but the Trump Shutdown shut down financial aid for our teenaged granddaughter who was going to college. She lost her financial aid and now she’s out of college. She is poor and was working part-time and going to college, but then she got the screws put to her by Donald Trump.

.

To the Fleming-Neon Little League baseball coaches: I like baseball as much as you do and my son plays for you, but this five-, six- and seven-days a week practice is a little much. Some of us have other things to do besides sit at the baseball field all the time. You need to reconsider.

.

I just wanted to remind everybody to beware of their animals. I have a dog and he’s a baby. Last Sunday he bit me and it took almost 30 stitches to close my hand. I had to go to Whitesburg and then UK. So please, people, I know you love your animals, but please keep them away from the little children. I can’t express how bad my hand hurts. I love my dog and I know you love yours, but please take this warning to heart. You sure don’t want to go through this. Now I have to put my dog down. This is three times he’s bitten me.

.

Well I see the new sheriff has a new car, and on the back of his car and his deputy’s car is written ‘In God We Trust.’ I don’t guess he has heard about the separation of church and state.

.

Dear Heavenly Father: I have a question. Satan, the devil, is trillions of years old, yet he came down here and deceived Adam and Eve? Let’s get real. Somewhere in the Bible it says we have anywhere from zero to seventy or eighty years left. Do you really think you’ve been fair with us? I hope you people out there kick this around in your mind. And unless you have a positive answer, don’t reply.

.

Hello out there, everybody. This is the old cat killer just reminding you that April is ‘kill thy neighbor’s cat and dog month.’ Enjoy yourselves and kill every one of them you can, especially when they mess in your yard. Have a great big old ‘meow’ day.

.

To whom it may concern: We Letcher County people do not like this fast time. We want the regular time back.
