The Thornton Cemetery was vandalized. It is a shame that happened. What’s even worse is a young man in the community and his son and a couple of friends tried to fix the damages and get the community to come together and donate funds to the monument company to have it fixed. But from my understanding, a few people in this county have tried to hinder this project. Sounds like they are part of the problem.

I would like to see some of the local papers follow up on the Centers for Disease Control and how they took backwater on the big reports they came out with on opiates and how the government was going to control how many opiates were going to be prescribed for the older people. Now it looks like the CDC is changing its mind after what they came out with was wrong. Come out and report on this.

.

Here are three sad stories: 1. I shopped at Walmart. 2. I was looking for 3X underwear. 3. They didn’t have any. I have seen some big ol’ boys in Walmart in Letcher County. Where are they buying their drawers? What’s a fat man to do?

.

Dear Speak: If we get a Republican to run against Mitch McConnell, would the people please get this traitor out of office? He is asking for the Republican senators to vote against Trump for president. Give me some feedback and we’ll get started trying to find a Republican to run against Mitch.

.

Closing the border. That’s one of the things that would stop illegal immigration. And of course it would affect the economy. But we have a workforce out there that nobody even thinks about. It’s the street people who live in the filth. You can’t even walk because of them in places like San Francisco, Los Angeles, and other big cities. There’s a workforce right there the American government could set up and get them off the street. Yes, put them to work. There’s a workforce out there just lying in the gutter. If they are lying in the gutter they can stand up and work.

.

To Supreme Leader Kim: I welcome the great news of your budding friendship with President Trump. Despite the conflicts between our two nations, at our hearts we are both a people of self-reliance. May your discussions forward the Juche thought throughout the world. Thank you and God bless.

.

It’s no wonder a certain church in Jenkins is losing members. Please sit that woman preacher down behind that piano.

.

Today’s Republican Party is nothing but a bunch of lowlife scum. I notice their traitor in the White House wants to send all of the illegal immigrants to so-called sanctuary cities in order to pay back the Democrats. Well I have a suggestion too: Let’s take those immigrants in and deport today’s Republican Party. America would be miles ahead.

.

To all you men who took something from a good friend of mine (and you took it home and most likely gave it to your wife): When a woman goes bad she goes bad. A man has worked all of his life trying to help raise his family — a man who never ran around on his wife. And now STD is running true through the places and homes where you men dwelled. You thought you were getting something. Well, you did get something, and Satan laid it on you. Satan will take you straight to hell.

.

Ever since Wayne Fleming retired as magistrate, here in Marshall’s Branch we haven’t seen a single gravel. In my opinion, people made a bad mistake in letting Wayne Fleming go. We need him. We’re not getting any help whatsoever anymore since Wayne is gone. McCall, we need you to stop up and start working on these hollows. We thank you and appreciate you.

.

I will speak slowly and to the point. If the devil died my wife would blame me for it. Catch you later.

.

Certain people are selling drugs out around Kentucky May Road. The new sheriff will straighten this out.

.

You say I am evil and I am going to hell, yet you go every Sunday to the Old Regular Baptist Church and act like a big ol’ Christian even though you sell your pain pills every month. That is something I would never do. We’ll see who goes to heaven, honey.

.

Trump for President. That’s what my motto is for 2020. Anybody who calls him a liar doesn’t know what they are talking about. I don’t care what they say or what they do, they do not know what they are talking about. You have to be in your seventies or older to know what is going on in this country.

.

To a bunch of dumb people: The churches of this United States put Donald Trump in office. I believe that with all my heart from what I have seen. I also know that God is head of man and man is head of woman. In that White House, the women think they are boss and think they are taking over. But I’ve got news for them; the Lord will have the last say over that bunch. I am a woman and I know.

.

When you go up to the courthouse to get your license renewed and you have a warrant on you they will hold you there and arrest you on that warrant if you owe any fines unless you can get in to see the circuit judge and have it taken care of. It’s not right for the judge to do with for one person and not let everybody else get by with it.

.

We the good people of Jenkins — taxpayers and citizens — elected Todd Depriest to be our mayor, hoping he will do the right thing. I understand he draws a salary of $47,000 plus perks. He should be doing his job. I have a horse tied up below me here in Smokey Row, right beside the creek. In Jenkins we have an ordinance that say no livestock. Horses are livestock. I believe Mayor Depriest should have the backbone to enforce this ordinance. Thank you.

.

When you dance with the devil you pay the price. I think you two certain people paid the price last week.

.

I’ve heard about all I want to hear about two women eating a cheese steak. The one woman vowed she would never eat it again. The other woman said she would eat half a cheese steak. She didn’t have to pay anything for it. That’s the reason she weighs 500 pounds. Ease up on the cheese steaks and the Ho-Ho’s.

.

I am calling to thank the young men who worked to fix the damages in the Thornton Cemetery. This county needs more young volunteers who are taking their time to work to fix the vandalism by people who do not respect the dead. Thank you very much.

.

The policeman, Mike Garner, in Jenkins is harassing ordinary citizens who are not doing anything wrong. He pulls everybody over. He has pulled me over a couple of times now and I haven’t done anything but be an ordinary citizen out enjoying myself. Something needs to be done about him. He needs to lighten up on regular people. There are a lot of bad people out here that need to be pulled over, but he doesn’t need to harass ordinary citizens who are not breaking the law. If something doesn’t give soon and he pulls me over again I am going to let somebody higher up know, so he better stop pulling people over who are not doing anything. Thank you.

.

I always thought the purpose of having the police was to protect and serve the public. But I found out their only purpose here is to harass and aggravate. That’s the reason I don’t like cops. I have never met a cop who has ever done any good for me. The only ones I have met are ones who harass me and give me and my family a hard time. I have never met a cop who has defended, protected or served me. Thank you.

.

To the persons tearing down the old rotten house in the left fork of Doty Creek: Please come back and clean your mess up. The garbage is getting in the road and everywhere else when the wind blows.

.

If the radio station on top of Pine Mountain at Pound Gap, 102.3, can’t stay on the air any longer than 10 or 15 minutes without fading out, please let somebody else have that.

.

I am calling from Jenkins. I would like to know what our mayor is going to do to help us when we are trying to enter the highway at the end of Brook Street. We have to pull out into oncoming traffic to see if anything is coming up the highway. There are too many vehicles parked along the side of the road. Thank you.

.

Has anybody ever listened to the man from Knott County on The Swap Shop selling his champion dogs? Every dog the man has, he claims they are from champion stock. Either this man is the luckiest man on earth when it comes to finding championship dogs to sell or he is full of you know what.

.

I believe in true love and believe you can find true love. I did find my true love but she got gone. But I saw her this week right here in Letcher County. I saw her on Tuesday. I just want her to know I fell in love with her in school and I still have love in my heart for her.

.

Two quick and simple ways to trash our trash problem. One, hidden cameras. Place trail cams at key places where dump sites keep popping up. Keep the cameras out of sight but place them where they can photograph the license plates. Two, place Dumpsters near population centers, places where trash piles up, and at the mouths of every hollow. People need places where they can put their larger items that can’t be put into trash bags.

.

It’s amazing how many people run around in this county with flashing lights in their vehicles trying to play like they are cops. I know one certain person who does it all the time and gets away with it.

.

To a certain caller: Your Heavenly Father comments stated that we only had Zero to 70 or 80 years left. Psalms 90:1-17 is the prayer of Moses. Moses lived to be 120 years old. Deuteronomy 34:7. And Aaron lived to be 123 years old. Numbers 33:39. Now for the children of Israel to live past 70 or 80 years is nothing to boast about, for those extra years brought on hardships and sorrow. If we live to be 80 or more our life is still short and too soon it flows away. This prayer teaches us to number our days and to apply our hearts and wisdom and let the bidding of the Lord, our God, be upon us. Thank you.

.

Part two to the Heavenly Father comment: I also prefer the King James Version of the Bible. King James VI of Scotland became Kings James I in England and appointed 54 scholars to translate the Bible into English in 1611. It was known as the authorized version. It was revised again in 1615, 1629, 1638, and 1762, which is the version most people now know as the King James Version. Which version do you have? Thank you.

.

To caller who commented about Pert Creek: Yes, some of our neighbors’ yards and porches look like the city garbage dump. And yes, some people burn their garbage beside the road and put the rest of it in the creek. Yes, it has been reported many times but nothing has ever been done about it. We might get something done now that we have a new judge. Some of us who live on Pert Creek don’t live like that. And concerning the traffic that was rerouted through Pert Creek during the work on U.S. 119, some of these vehicles threw out their paper cups, their McDonald’s wrappers and other fast-food papers. One little black truck dumped a whole load of garbage on the head of Pert Creek. We saw you and we saw all the stuff on your truck. When we came back from church it was dumped. Yes, it was reported and pictures were taken. We are now just waiting on the county officials to do something.

.

I just wonder about the cost of house arrest. Where does this money go? First, there’s a girl in Jenkins who stole from a pharmacy for several years and gets one year of house arrest. Then a Neon man gets one year of house arrest for three counts of being a pedophile. Now I am on house arrest, innocent until proven guilty, waiting on a blood test on a DUI charge. I too am on nearly one year of house arrest. Something just doesn’t add up here. Something is fishy, too.

.

I would just like to address the people who are talking about Donald Trump: He is one of the best presidents we have had in a long time. It’s just a shame to think that poor people are going against Donald Trump. He has brought this country back. If people can’t see that they are plumb ignorant to the ways of our land. We need Donald Trump in there another four years. We need Nancy Pelosi and those ignorant Democrats out of Congress.

.

This is concerning the housing authority in Whitesburg: How do some people get by with acting like they own everything and others get in trouble. Some people can park three or four cars and other people can’t. I would like to know why. Thank you.

.

I was wondering if all these politicians who have left their signs up will have to pay some sort of fine for littering. They should be held accountable. Politicians, get your signs down. Thank you.
