People, spay or neuter your animal. Be responsible, stop throwing them away and stop starving them on chains. I’m sick of seeing this every day. The Perry County Animal Shelter has a low-cost spay and neuter program. If you don’t want them send them to the animal shelter in Perry County they find homes for them. If you can’t get them there call animal control. It’s listed as Letcher County Road Department in the phone book, and is also listed on the Letcher County Government web page as animal control. They will pick them up. Call the County Judge’s office and ask for the phone number if you can’t find it. Be a responsible neighbor. If you see something, report it until someone listens.

Each week I read in Speak Your Piece about neighbors and people in elected positions that people call in to complain about. If we are Christians we need to pray that God will convict them of their wrongdoings. I believe that praying for others is much appreciated by our Heavenly Father. Just by nature we are self-centered. It is work to pray for people who break the laws. Jesus, at the age of 12 in Luke 2:49, knew he was to work for His father. I recommend the 9:15 a.m. radio program by Pastor Tony Brown and Shepherd’s Chapel for Bible knowledge and inspiration.

I don’t understand why the police in the City of Fleming-Neon will not do anything to turn their hand in their own city. But you let something happen in Whitesburg or Jenkins and they will break their neck to get to it. I just don’t understand why the city council and the mayor let this go on. If the City of Fleming-Neon is broke, then its officials might start wrangling in the police department. Thank you.

.

Yes, you are right about hiring people and paying them ahead of time. Believe you me, if you do pay them in advance they will not be back. I will never do it again.

Since he reneged on his promise to rescue the coal industry, why doesn’t ‘tRump’ put out-of-work miners on welfare like he did the farmers who he screwed with his insane tariffs?

.

Why does our government insist on bringing hundreds of thousands of illegals in every month while we have people having to beg for donations to help our own citizens who are in need?

.

What is it going to take to get law enforcement to put a stop to the drug dealer in a certain house here in Haymond?

.

If you’re flying a ‘Trump’ or Confederate flag in front of your house, then you, at the very least, are telling people you’re in favor of white supremacy, racism and xenophobic culture — and that’s not cool. But you’re also saying that you’re in favor of so-called trickle down economic policies set by corporations and the super rich. These are not your people. Maybe start by looking around you and getting to know your neighbor, because guess what? Your neighbor made the difficult and personal decision to have an abortion, your neighbor is queer, your neighbor has a family member who is detained at the border. Let’s try electing representatives who support compassion in finding solutions to actual issues that people face, not some antiquated toxic hate-filled brainwashed ideology that’s learned from a screen planted there by someone far away and stoked by local politicians looking to use these divisions for personal gain.

.

I think we will soon know the outcome of police using city time, cars and fuel and also getting third party pay. Also, if a person can be a chief of police in one town how can he be on the city council of another town?

.

I walked outside today and looked up in the sky. What did I see? A big green Huey up there circling around. Yes, and he started hovering in one certain spot and a certain somebody ran and hid. It is pot-finding time, but a certain coward always finds ways to hide. Thank you.

.

What happens after you die? Nothing extraordinary. You rot and become fertilizer. People have to get over themselves. Live in the now. Enjoy this because that’s all you get. People are waiting for something else and they’re going to be very disappointed.

.

When you’re with a certain girl who has three kids by three different daddies, odds are you are going to get something.

.

Meet me at that giant First Baptist Church sign that brings this fair city light.

.

There they were questioning Robert Mueller again about the Russians interfering in the 2016 election. I respect the man for his Vietnam valor and what he did there, but why aren’t they questioning Obama or Hillary Clinton instead of drilling this man? What have the Democrats done for America except nag, nag, nag?

.

Dan Coats is an honest, intelligent, experienced patriot. That’s why Trump got rid of him.

.

There’s no use for someone like Coats in the current administration. This is in reference to the person who commented that Blackjewel employees were looking for handouts: No Blackjewel employee ever asked for a handout. All they wanted were answers and their paychecks. If you paid attention you would have noticed this. If your food stamps or state aid check got cut out you would be the first one hollering and screaming. Your comment just shows there are still stupid people in the world.

.

Many hearts are broken over the little girl who lost her life in the ATV accident at Linefork. Just as sure as the sun comes up in the morning there were angels all around her when she left.

.

Do not get that Ison boy from Big Branch to take you to the store, because he will break you up. He charges outrageously to take you to the store in Whitesburg or anywhere. I thought he was a good man and a good neighbor, but he’s not. Thank you.

.

Hey, old yellow back, do you still have a yellow stripe down your back? Where did you go? And when are you coming back, old quack yellow back? All you are is an old yellow back. Run like a dog.

.

Hello to the girl who tells a story with her rentals at my Blockbuster, at which I am, yes, currently employed. I hear what you’re trying to say. It began with ‘True Romance.’ Your progression to the series of kung fu movies, specifically featuring Bruce Lee, leads me to believe you’re mourning. But your recent turn into the styling of female-centric vampire erotica from the backroom leads me to believe you have moved on, and may be looking for someone to move on with. I have taken the liberty of purchasing a vampire costume from the Party City across the street. Let’s get pasta sometime — Hold the garlic. 🙂

.

I would like to know one thing: What is meth and how did it get into the Letcher County Jail? Meth is a dangerous drug. I don’t know who came up with that, but they have sure done something wrong. It’s a living torment for families who have people on drugs.

.

Who should be contacted about a 16-year-old girl who lives on her own while her grandmother is in the hospital? Her dad lives below them but he won’t let the girl come into his house. He’s not been out in the public in years. What can we do to solve this problem? They live in awful shape.

.

If God created the sun on the fourth day, how had the previous three days passed?

.

Sheriff Mickey Stines, where are you? We have all kinds of things going on in Letcher County. You were on fire at first but you have slowed down. What’s the matter?

.

What’s happened to the litter warden? Nothing is being done to make anybody clean up anything. The problem is getting worse. We have a lot of people with a lot of nasty yards. These homes should be condemned.

.

We have more elderly people in Letcher County in need of being placed in a nursing home, because they are living in unlivable homes. The doctors and nurses know who they are, so why can’t they do something about it? The elderly people should not have to live like this. What’s the matter with our county?

.

They sure don’t fix ATM machines in this county for people in cars. If you’re in a car you have to get out because you can’t reach the machine. They must have built them for trucks or something.

.

I saw a preacher on TV this morning claiming the Lord helped get him a pair of shoes at one time, he was so poor. Another one got one big suit after the other because he was so poor. People, anybody who claims to serve God and buys preachers shoes and suits before he or she helps the little children at St. Jude’s is serving one sorry lowdown god.

.

I hope that if my dad, or my mom for that matter, leaves this world before I do that I have enough respect to go to their funeral and not miss for the mere fact I have a reservation somewhere.

.

I bet the UMWA would look good to some of these coal miners here right now. Years ago we let the yellow dog scabs run the UMWA out of here. We didn’t have any backbone to support the union with after it supported us the way it did for so many years. This would never have happened if these miners had been under the UMWA.

.

To a certain person: First of all, you are a good person. But I am growing old. I have taken care of people all my life. I think I’ve been a pretty good person, too. I think that what time I have left, I should be able to live it for myself. You are only hurting yourself by saying these things you are saying. Think about it, and don’t be running off at the mouth.

.

Dear Speak Your Piece: I am shocked that the vocational school at Letcher County Central does not have a top-notch plumbing and electrical program, a construction program, or a welding program. Having to send our children to Virginia to be educated is terrible. We know that going to college to be a teacher or to work in some type of medical field is about all we’ve got here. Actually, going to most colleges is a waste of time. So why not have great vocational training here at home?

.

Congratulations, Mr. President. Finally the Supreme Court has seen that the American people do need protection at the southern border. Thank you, Mr. President, for fighting for America.

.

I just want to know why go to a certain health care facility and I can’t get anything for pain and I’m 75 years old. I had my hip broken and my right knee has been broken twice. They won’t give me anything even though I am in so much pain I can’t sleep at night. How big of a druggie can I become at 75 years old?

.

To the people out there who are tired of watching and hearing these side-bysides and four-wheelers: We the people who ride motorcycles have to have them insured and tagged to ride them on a county or state road. Why don’t these sideby sides and four-wheelers have to be licensed and insured? They ride up and down the hollows and aggravate people to death to the point they can’t even sit on their front porch. Please, people of Kentucky, let’s get something done about this and make these things be insured and tagged. Then they will have the right to fly up and down these hollows and bug people. Thank you.

I was watching TV and just saw a vet put a peg leg on a hog. It reminded me of the story about the salesman driving by and seeing a hog with a wooden leg in front of an old farmhouse. He wheeled in and said, ‘Has that hog got a peg leg?’ The farmer said, ‘Yeah,’ and the salesman asked, ‘Well, what’s it doing with a peg leg?’ The farmer answered, ‘Well, with a hog that good you don’t want to eat it all at once.’ About that time a chicken went by. The salesman said, ‘That chicken looks like it has three legs.’ The farmer said, ‘Yeah, me and my wife cross-bred them and came up with three-legged ones.’ The salesman then asked, ‘How do they taste?’ The farmer answered, ‘I don’t know, me and her haven’t been able to catch one yet.’

Now that the racist Trump is accusing a very respected congressman of being solely responsible for the poverty in Baltimore, how long do you think it will be before people connect the dots and blame all the poverty in eastern Kentucky on Moscow Mitch McConnell?

.

I have this question: Why was Hilary Clinton not labeled a racist when she called us ‘deplorables’? A house divided cannot stand. Neither the Democrat or the Republican parties are fit for a dog to bark at. We need a new party called the American Party that is of the American people that have the American values that American people have, like President Donald Trump has as he represents the American people. If you Republicans and Democrats don’t like what President Trump says it is because you won’t listen to the American people. President Trump speaks what the American people want to hear. He doesn’t speak like a coward politician. He is a real leader, not a coward.

.

People will talk about you like a dog, but when they see you on the street they will greet you with a big hello. The Bible says these people are double-minded men. The Bible also says God hates double-minded men.

Has anybody in the Beefhide or Marshall’s Branch areas lost two German shepherd dogs? They have been running in here for about a month or two. One has a bright red collar. If anyone has lost them, they are in Marshall’s Branch on the strip jobs.
