What really gets to me is when you walk into a certain grocery and look around at all the ways you can save money and there are all the sale items piled up. You look at those items and you’re pulling out coupons and you get to the checkout counter and they tell you, ‘Oh, those are for this weekend. Nothing you have is on sale.’ That would be the definition of false advertising if they didn’t have a date hidden on it. Stores, please do not put those items out until it is time for the sale.

George Jones sang, ‘Who’s Gonna Fill Their Shoes.’ Wiley Quixote is gone from WMMT, and his replacement is late on the four o’clock polka. His replacement is still learning, but he’ll never fill Wiley Quixote’s shoes.

.

To the lady with the dark black hair at the rec center: It makes my day seeing you there. You are very beautiful. Thank you.

.

I’m calling in reference to the new magistrate who took Wayne Fleming’s place on the Letcher Fiscal Court. Since we can’t have Wayne Fleming anymore we are sure proud to have you holding the position. Signed, the people of Marshal’s Branch.

.

Our president averaged almost six lies per day during his first year in office. That went up to over 16 per day the second year. So far this year he’s averaging almost 22 per day. Signs of panic?

.

This county needs more young men like the ones who fixed up the damages at the Thornton Cemetery. They did the work without any funds being provided by the county or the county officials. Where were our elected magistrate and the others? Where was the help they should have provided?

.

To a certain woman: You are evil and you are going to hell. I go to the good Old Regular Baptist Church every Sunday and I am a Christian. Have you bought a pain pill from me? I will pray for you today in hope that you will get off your pain pills. Thank you.

.

I salute you, my president. I knew you didn’t ‘colluse’ with those Russians, and I’ve said it all along. And you have. It was a witch hunt. And here they are already hollering about putting Mueller up to testify. Don’t they ever quit? The Democrats need to apologize. And the ones who started this need prosecuted, because it was started on flat-out lies. You are innocent, Mr. President, your accusers lied on you. What about this Clinton woman? We know what she did, and it’s been proven. I say America, salute our president. We will never get another one like him. God bless America.

.

Can you believe a Democrat would be on the news talking about transparency?

.

I went by the Letcher County Food Bank in Whitesburg the other day. Once again, it seemed like the same old thing. People were there, but you have to have this or you have to have that or there’s a reason why food can’t be given out to those who need it. I still wonder if I was homeless and didn’t have all this information I was asking for, would I be able to get free food there? Probably not. I guess I’ll drive to Lexington and get me some ramen noodles. Mmm.

.

I’m sure glad I am not a Republican. That means I won’t have to be a hypocrite or a liar.

.

Somebody needs do some research on the county going wet or dry. I guarantee you there is more crime now that the county has gone wet. I think Letcher County needs to go back to being a dry county. Thank you.

(The overwhelming majority of crimes now occurring in Letcher County are related to the abuse of the highly addictive drug methamphetamine.)

.

Turtle Man and tRump are bringing a Russian company to Kentucky. How many years will it take them to have one in every state and complete Russia’s takeover of our country?

.

I don’t know what the deal is, but we haven’t had any new stores or businesses open up since Terry Adams became the new judge of Letcher County. We need Harbor Freight and Tool to come to Letcher County.

(First, new business has come to Letcher County since Judge/Executive Terry Adams took office in January. Second, it is not the job of a county judge/executive to recruit retail businesses.)

.

I have more copies of the King James version of the Bible at my house than anything else — I think I have about 12 of them. But, as the caller said, it is a ‘version.’ That’s the reason we have so many churches on earth. They all have their own version and they explain it their way, just like you, caller, explain it your way and I explain it my way. But I still read the King James and you can learn the truth from it. You have a nice day. I enjoyed your answer.

.

I appreciate our new magistrate on Cowan. I think he is a good man, but has anybody seen him around? Our roads are so bad. The weeds need cut. The ditch lines need cleaned out. There are trees hanging over road where he lives. We had one magistrate who didn’t do a thing. Show us what a good man you are, Jack. And we love you anyway.

(You do know the road you are talking about near the home of new Magistrate Jack Banks is state-maintained, right?)

.

Do the people in the Letcher-Isom area and the Neon area get the same type of medical care as the people in Whitesburg? If I had been giving money out to Little Leagues I believe I would have divided it up three-three-three instead of giving Whitesburg the whole $9,000.

.

I just can’t wait to see what the punishment is going to be for the three little hoodlums who damaged the Thornton Cemetery. Some of those headstones can’t be replaced. I have a lot of memories at this place. I can’t wait to see the punishment; I hope it’s a good one. I have spoken my piece.

.

I would like to leave this message for a certain beautiful young lady who had a certain procedure done. She sure has lost a lot of weight. This is just to let her know she is looking mighty fine. I know she has a man, but I wish she would drop me a line and address it to the roadrunner.

.

What’s on my mind is the Burton Hill Bandit. He’s back in jail again.

.

I need help finding a family cemetery. The cemetery is the Hale and Hart Cemetery. It is supposed to be located at Sandlick, near Whitesburg. If you can help, please call 855-4055 in the evening. Thank you.

.

Thank you to the young men who repaired the vandalism at the Thornton graveyard. That cemetery has been there for years and these young who fixed the damage need to be recognized. The work was done by two adult men and two children. The community stands very much behind them and thanks them very much.

.

This is concerning the garbage situation. I have neighbor who lives on SSI. The wife lives on SSI and I guess the kid lives on SSI, too. They have never worked a day in their life. Their place looks like a junkyard. They have never paid property tax, because I have gone the courthouse to check and see about paying their tax to get rid of them. They are not on city water. I would just about bet anything they have never paid a garbage bill. So what can be done about people like this? One of my solutions would be to make them get out and start picking up garbage in the community. Make them get out and start cleaning up the county. Put them to work.

(Great idea, especially since our county jail is so full

.

To the Neon Little League: Whoever schedules all of those games for one day must be brain-dead. The traffic up there is a nightmare.

(Actually, the ‘braindead’ are probably those who volunteer their time to help with Little League Baseball only to be criticized for the work they do.)
