I don’t think I can say it all in one minute, so I’ll give you part of it. I think the sheriff is doing a great job, only he needs to get some of these meth heads who are running up and down Blair Branch, Doty Creek, and Black Bottom. The judge turns them loose and, especially in Blair Branch, they sell meth through the window like a drive-in. We have bunch of zombies running around, so if any of you people out there see a zombie and wonder what it’s on, it’s on meth. Thank you.

.

I would like to thank the sheriff for his good works, but the judges keep turning these people loose who sell meth. I’m an elderly woman with a grandson that likes meth. I hope I don’t catch anyone letting him have it. I’m not threatening anyone; I’m just speaking what I mean. Thank you.

.

How did it come to be the responsibility of the American taxpayer to take care of the families of foreign nationals? I would like to know that answer.

.

So I just read that Governor Matt Bevin is buying TV ads to criticize his Democrat opponent, Andy Beshear, for Beshear having said he would oppose any of Donald Trump’s policies that would be harmful to Kentucky. Does this mean Matt Bevin is OK with Trump’s attempt to stop the long-promised Letcher County federal prison project and spend the five million dollars allocated to the prison on a border wall instead? Does this mean Matt Bevin approves of Donald Trump’s plan to take healthcare away from millions of poor people in Kentucky? It sure sounds like it to me. Personally, I want a governor who will fight for Letcher County to get that prison and will fight for the right of Kentucky’s poorest people to get good quality healthcare.

Just wanted to say happy birthday to a very sweet girl in Jenkins whose birthday is on July 5.

.

I think it’s time for Kentucky to catch up with all the other states and get on the ball and legalize marijuana. The state could then take in a lot more money and pay the schoolteachers more and fund their retirement. Step up to the plate. Legalize marijuana and make some money.

.

Something tells me that most of these pro-Trump commenters in Speak Your Piece are former Letcher County residents living elsewhere. After all, not one of the men or women who seem to comment regularly about God blessing Trump or illegal immigration has criticized our illustrious president for doing his best to kill our prison and kill any hope this county had for a better life and economy for our people.

.

It’s amazing how many of these druggies give preachers sob stories so the preachers will pass the bucket and collect money to give to the druggies so they can buy more drugs.

.

I have you on video killing my cat and I’m going to turn you over to the Humane Society and you will pay.

(If you’ve got it on video you should show it to the people in the sheriff ’s office who regularly deal with animal abuse cases.)

.

God bless America and God bless you, Mr. Trump. This Mueller guy reminds me of something I stepped in and wiped off my shoes. He’s kind of like a venereal disease, he just keeps coming back. The American people have your back, Mr. President. We love you.

.

I’m going to take my Thermos back and get a refund of my money. I put two cups of coffee and a Popsicle in it, as it is supposed to keep hot stuff hot and cold stuff cold. It didn’t work. My Popsicle melted and my coffee froze up.

.

The Bible says that when there is no talebearer the strife will cease. Yes, you can judge, but if you’re going on what somebody told you and you don’t know whether it’s the truth or not, you are a gossiper or just a liar, and a liar will have no part in the Kingdom of Heaven.

.

There’s no danger of a certain lumber company getting one of its trucks abused. It’s 4:09 on a Wednesday evening. A skinny fellow with a little scruffy beard and wearing a hat is running 26 miles per hour during the trip from Jenkins back to you all. He’s working on some overtime, but you don’t have to worry about that motor going out.

.

To a certain person: I don’t know if you’re talking to me or not, because I never really told you how I feel about you. But if you really want to know and it’s me you’re talking about, I absolutely adore you.

.

The Texas Tribune reported that since 2010 the Hispanic population in the U.S. has grown by 1.9 million as compared to the white population growth of 1.1 million.

.

To some of you nosey neighbors in Doty Creek: Don’t you know it isn’t polite to eavesdrop on other people’s telephone calls? You think you’re getting by with it but you’re not.

.

I’m calling in about guardrails on Route 7 from Redstar to Frogpond. All of Route 7 has guardrails except that area, and I just wonder why the state doesn’t check into it and have them replaced. Our children use that road, and their lives are just as important as anyone else’s. Thank you.

.

Could someone tell me why we now have two treetrimming companies working for Kentucky Power Company in Letcher County at this time? For a long time it was just one. Just about every one of them who works for the newer company that’s here, Nelson Tree Service, doesn’t speak English. I think they are probably Hispanic. I just wonder why Nelson doesn’t see if someone in America might want a job. But I guess maybe we wouldn’t work for five dollars an hour.

.

To a certain person: Somebody told on you. They saw you and they saw the cat. They told the tale and they gave the name, and you ought to be ashamed.

.

I wish the state highway department would address the issues on Kentucky Highway 7. There have been numerous wrecks — one fatality — and numerous instances of trucks getting stuck because of improper road signs and very poor driving conditions. There are potholes and large parts of Highway 7 are falling off into the river at a lot of places. I wish the state would please address the issues and spend some money on blacktopping and proper signs.

.

I was recently humbled by an article I read recently on Facebook. It said nobody likes kids being detained in cages at the border. Nobody likes it. There’s no point in sharing it and spreading the word. Everybody knows about it and nobody likes it. My question is who is going to step up and do something about it? How much will the American public take? I think there’s a conspiracy here. The government wants to know how much the American people will put up with. Can we push them this far? Well it looks like we’re caging little kids, separating them from their mommies and daddies, putting them in detention camps, and America is just sitting around saying, ‘Man, that’s bad. Let me share that. Now I’m a good person.’ Wake up, folks.

.

I hope the court system does something with a certain Lucas boy. He has done everything from kill dogs to steal, steal, steal. He’s locked up right now for stealing someone’s gravestone. If I was the people atop Sandlick Gap who are missing their fourwheeler I believe I would see if he’s responsible for that, too. He needs to be held responsible before he does something that ends up destroying someone’s life. What does he have to do to get some time? Save his life; give him some time. That’s the only way he’s going to ever be able to straighten up. Thank you.

.

To a certain woman from Jenkins: How would you like to see a picture of your girlfriend with another woman?

.

I want to wish my brother from Williamstown a happy birthday. It was on July 1. Happy birthday, Junior. Love, your sis, Jackie Adams.

.

I want to wish my grandson, Austin James Coomer of Harrison’s Branch, a happy birthday. It was on July 2. Happy birthday, Austin. Love you, from Grandma Jackie Adams.

.

You said you imagine there are a few false prophets. You don’t even read your Bible. Read Matthew 24:11. Jesus Himself said there shall be many false prophets and that they would deceive man. The Bible doesn’t say ‘imagine.’ In John 5:39 it says search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life. You say I’m going to damn my soul? Well if I go to hell for telling the truth then so be it.

.

The Bible says when a wise man hears gossip he keeps it to himself and a fool runs out telling it to everybody, causing numerous problems and trouble.

.

Dear Speak Your Piece: I would like to thank the Kentucky State Police and the Letcher County Sheriff ’s Department for catching that little thief over on Thornton. Now if the judge or judges would set a million-dollar bond he might get to live.

I’ve been alarmed about the extreme serial cat chopping down in Mudtown. I was wondering what kind of chopping? Karate or ax?

.

Hi, The Kentucky Ridgerunner will be home soon, and we’ll all go hiking in the hills again! ‘In the pines, in the pines, where the sun never shines!’ Hi down on Cane Hollow. Continue the good fight, brother, and so will I. One day we will all be joined together with our loved ones and what a beautiful day that will be! Amen? Hey, stay strong in the world, brother, life is too beautiful to be in these dark places. Miss everyone and hope all is well and all in good health. Your brother, Kentucky Ridgerunner.

To the beautiful lady who works at the rec center with the dark, black hair: I didn’t think you could look any more beautiful. But I was wrong. Not only are you the most beautiful there, but you cut your hair and let it down, and now you are the most beautiful in town.
