Speak Your Piece

E-m@il address In addition to the telephone and the U.S. Mail, The Mountain Eagle accepts comments to Speak Your Piece by electronic mail. Our address is: mtneagle@bellsouth.net

We would like to thank our magistrate, Maverick Cook, for personally cutting the weeds at Thornton Park. We would also like to thank Thornton resident Kevin Breeding aand others for mowing the park.

.

I’m calling to thank our president for jacking up gasoline prices. People will make fewer unnecessary trips, waste less gasoline, and pollute the air less. You know what a big environmental advocate he is.

.

This is a public service announcement for the ones trolling for dope on Pert Creek: Your connection is in the Greybar Hotel — the Stony Lonesome, the Hoosegow. In other words, he’s in jail. If you keep coming looking for him we will be obliged to put you right next to him. Thank you.

.

Someone came up onto my porch at about 5 a.m. on Monday, May 13. I live on Little Cowan. You people should be smarter than to walk up on someone’s porch. You will get shot for sure. Don’t be coming onto people’s porches at Little Cowan at five in the morning. A word to the wise.

.

It looks like those kids on that four-wheeler on Thornton finally got hit before they got killed. At least they lived through it. They shouldn’t have been on the road on a four-wheeler to start with. It sure wasn’t the other guy’s fault.

.

Dear Speak Your Piece: I don’t blame Trump for taxing the you-know-what out of the Chinese. They have been stealing from the United States in every way you can imagine. I don’t care if it causes a world depression. The last presidents, from Obama all the way back, have given our country away to these thieves.

.

If we could only get rid of Barack Obama the coal industry would come back in eastern Kentucky. Yeah, bull—-.

.

I am getting so tired of going into restaurants or grocery stores or any other places that sell food and seeing people in there with dogs. Doesn’t the health department have some kind of law against this? A dog has no place being inside a place where food is sold to humans or eaten by humans. Thank you.

.

I was just following a truck going up Sandlick here and saw the driver go plumb out of his way to run over a blacksnake in the road. I hope he knows he just turned a copperhead loose there. Watch it bite him now.

To families who drink the Monster energy drinks: If you really want to know what it’s doing to your child, I can tell you pretty quickly. It’s junking his or her heart out. If you don’t believe me, try this: Get your child to drink one, take him or her to the doctor for a heart rate check. A normal heart rate is 60 to 100 beats per minute. That goes up to 255 beats per minute after drinking one of these drinks. These drinks should be outlawed.

.

God bless America and God bless our president, Mr. Trump. He is not a clown. He stands up for America.

.

When so-called authorities have clerks lying and stealing for them there is only one conclusion to reach — the authorities and the clerks are all low-lifes.

.

How long has it been since we became subjects instead of citizens? Our founding fathers came here from Europe for the very purpose of getting away from being servants of the ruling class. Now we have become the same thing that they left.

.

Letcher County Central High School’s baseball coach is a great coach. He is an honest coach. He is a coach who can, if given time, take us all the way to Lexington and the home of the Legends, Whitaker Bank Park. Whoever made the comment that we need a new baseball coach at LCC: The one thing you don’t know is baseball. This man knows baseball and this man needs to be given the chance to prove how well he does know the sport.

.

I want to thank Charlie Bailey. He’s a great tree trimmer and he’s good to his word. He’s also very reasonable. If you need your trees cut you need to get in touch with Charlie Bailey and his son. They are wonderful.

.

I have three questions: One, is there a Planned Parenthood location in Alabama? Two, do these big windmills out west kill a lot of birds? Three, how long does a solar panel last and how do you dispose of it?

.

Those people out there who know baseball can see the Letcher County Central baseball coach is building a team for the future. That is the type of person we want in all of our coaching positions. Winners in life and on the field.

.

To Sheriff Mickey Stines: I would like for you personally to go up Pine Creek at a location between two churches. A sign has been put up there that completely blinds you out as a driver. You cannot see which way to go, and this needs to be addressed. It’s good that a church has a sign, but it needs to be put in a place that doesn’t create a hazard to our lives and our health. Please go see these people and ask them to do something about the sign. Thank you.

.

I looked up the word coach. The definition is one who instructs and trains athletes. It never says anything about running up and down the mountainside. Still looking for that high school baseball coach. Please help. Thank you.

.

God Almighty, you are not nice. You are billions of years old, but you are not nice.

.

I took a drive to Burdine the other day and noticed that Jenkins now has a junk car lot right on Main Street. I’m going to go back and stop and ask Mayor Todd Depriest if I can get a deal on those junk cars.

.

There seems to be problem on Cumberland River with bears. The bears have gotten onto the porch of one certain family several times. Sooner or later that thing is going to get in the house. And I’ll tell you, I’ll go old-school on them if they let children get hurt because someone is too sorry to bear-proof a house. If those children get hurt over a bear, I’m coming up and I’m going old-school.

.

We got some real high quality asphalt on the Whitesburg bypass. It looks good. Now we need to keep it going from Letcher County

Central High School at Ermine to the Virginia line. We don’t need to buy up more property and build more lanes. Just asphalt what we have.

.

How many blacks are in Whitesburg? How many whites are in Blackey? Even our state song is racist. Thank you, Stephen Collins Foster, who never stepped foot in Kentucky. Need I say more? Good day.

.

To a certain person: First, she may drive it but I make the payments on it. And it’s not for hauling your drunk self around. You’re nothing but a hypocrite. Call your husband to get you home the next time.
