I’m writing to let everyone know that you can burn your trash and construction material with no fines or penalty. It is being done here in my neighborhood, almost on a daily basis. I have called the EPA, 911, fire department, and the sheriff ’s office and what good is it doing? They are still doing the burning, so that answers that question. So, what is a person to do? I’ll tell you what; I am going to take the owner of the trailer court on Highway 588 to court if he doesn’t stop it himself. He needs to stop his renters from burning toxic material in the air for people to breath in the surrounding area. This is not only a health hazard, but it makes it impossible for you to go outside your home and take a walk do your chores. Burning toxic materials in Letcher County is becoming an air quality hazard and I would greatly appreciate some help from the elected officials in Letcher County with this very important matter. People, we share one planet; why can’t we have the decency to take care of it? We are already having to buy water to drink. Are you willing to start having to buy the air you need to breathe? Wake up before it is too late.

To the fast food restaurants in Whitesburg, particularly the Wendy’s and the Dairy Queen: Are you no longer offering napkins to your drive-thru customers? Is your franchise too cheap to supply napkins or are your workers too uncaring to include a napkin a two with our orders? Can you not train your people to complete the simple task of grabbing a napkin and shoving said napkin into a bag of food before handing your product out the window? How hard could that be?

.

Another year has gone by and we still haven’t heard a thing about the big prison that was supposed to come to the Roxana area. We were told we would have a new federal prison and jobs. What happened?

.

Thank you, Eileen Sanders and The Mountain Eagle, for the pictures of the former Jenkins High School students, especially the picture of my sister who passed away a few months. This is long overdue. I appreciate it.

It is written in the Bible in Matthew 11:28-30, Jesus said, ‘Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.’ John 3:16-18 says, ‘For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.’

.

Such nasty mouths spewing the hatred for the best president America has ever had and loving a total failure of 47 years. President Trump can tell 157,000 more lies and he still won’t be up there with Biden and Obama.

.

Mitch McConnell, what have you done this time? People running out of unemployment benefits, people living on the streets. Remember the people? That’s who you represent, the people who put you in office. You shot down another stimulus plan that would have helped every one of us who need help. You sit around your big table and eat your good food and go out and toast and whatever. You and Nancy Pelosi need to kiss and make up. You two are Dumb and Dumber in my book. God bless America.

.

Oh where, oh where has my government gone.

.

I think it is a shame that a City of Jenkins supervisor put his hands on a citizen of Jenkins in front of the mayor and nothing happens to him and he does not lose his job.

.

A certain house on Lance Drive in McRoberts has been getting free water from the City of Fleming- Neon for five years. If every other house has to pay a water bill, why not this one?

.

Please put this vote total in Speak Your Piece. Joe Biden, 81,271,137 votes, or 51.4 percent. Donald Trump, 74,209,304 votes, or 46.9 percent. This mean that Joe Biden is currently ahead of Donald Trump by more than seven million votes. Biden leads in the Electoral College, 306 to 232. Even though Trump got his tail whipped his pride won’t let him admit it, even to the point that Trump is trying to stage a coup to stay in power. How sad for our country.

.

When you die, you evil person, I hope the last thing you see is my face in front of you because of the way you treated me and how evil you were to me. I wish I could be there to see it. Hell is waiting on you, honey. You can bet on that.

Last Thursday at about 2 p.m. I was waiting for a ride inside a business at Isom. During about a 15-minute wait, 10 of about 20 people who came in were not wearing a face mask. I heard no employee say anything to those without a mask. I said to one man, ‘ You’re supposed to be wearing a mask.’ He said, ‘Sorry.’ How can we expect to get control over COVID if employees and customers don’t follow the face mask rule?

.

I would like to just say that yes, it is very healthy to lose weight and have surgery, but it doesn’t help the way your face looks. So, we would all appreciate it if while you are out walking in the evening you would stop looking around to see if anybody sees you. Yes, everybody sees you. Yes, you have lost weight. But you still are ugly. I’m sorry I had to say this, but you need to grow up. Thank you.

No wonder Russia tried to help re-elect Trump with disinformation. Who better for our enemies than a leader who is so very effective even now in undermining without evidence our free elections and our free press that is so vital to us? Who better for our enemies than a leader who encourages violence against political opponents — ‘Lock her up! Lock her up! — and pushes corporate profits over conserving our land, clean air and water? Who better for our enemies than a leader who speeds up the virus and wrecks jobs by mocking mask-wearing, even crippling our post office and, above all, encouraging us to hate each other? If we keep this up our enemies can simply sit back and watch us destroy ourselves and our country.

.

I can’t believe we are still in the coronavirus stage here in eastern Kentucky. The only reason they won’t send out more stimulus money is because of one man — Mitch Mc- Connell. He doesn’t believe the people need any more money. He thinks he is president of the United States. The only reason he got re-elected is because they said that Amy Mc- Grath was for killing babies. We need that money more than ever now.

.

When Pud Shubert was mayor he built Jenkins into a nice little town. It is now becoming a slum area and a drug-infected village.

.

To my hairdresser: Someone must have made you mad today. I came over to have my hair done and you weren’t there. You are going to have to come back to work, hairdresser.

.

The House passed a bill to legalize marijuana. That’s all we need, stoners driving up and down the road, running the White House and all the other government offices. Just roll one and toke it up. Well, Mr. President, you’ve lost the battle. Now you have to regroup and do something for America before you go out of office. Do something great for the people to remember you for in four years from now. Quit whining and crying. Roll one up and toke it up, as far as I’m concerned. Slap a woman on her behind, as far as I’m concerned, but quit crying. You lost; nothing is going to change that.

.

We’re at almost 300,000 COVID-19 deaths. And over 2,000 more every day. For those of you who said you’d rather die than vote for Hillary, here we are.

.

I would like to speak my piece about these ladies in Jenkins who are like saints. They give out groceries once a month. They are very kind ladies, the ones who actually do it. But there is one lady who comes to volunteer and she seems to be very mean. She needs to have a little compassion when it comes to these people who need groceries. They ran out of groceries last month and she said, ‘Get out! We have no more groceries!’ She needs to find a new line of work. If she doesn’t change her tune, she is going to be reported to the people in charge. Thank you very much.

.

Yes, I divorced my husband, but I finally took him back because he does work. He started working after I divorced him, so now that he’s bringing the money home, I’ll keep him.

.

Well, we’re going to have some real trouble over this election, especially if the Democrats try to force Biden in as president. After all of these stolen ballots, computer tinkering, and other ways this election was stolen, Joe Biden needs to back off or else.

.

As far as I know it is illegal to burn tires in our county. I would highly suggest that monstrous stacks of tires I am seeing not be burned or I will call Frankfort. I’m going to make a video and see if it will get those tires removed.

.

I can remember a time when the Democrats were for the workingman, especially those having a hard time making a living. But they have thrown them in the trash and said, ‘Now we are going with the big tech, where the money is, and we’ll buy the votes or steal them if we have to because we want to be in power.’ If you think this election was fair, I have some oceanfront property over in Leslie County I would like to sell you. Thank you.

.

When you have an election for president just exactly like Venezuela does you are a Third World country. The Democrats have already seen to that.

.

If Donald Trump isn’t able to get away with pardoning himself, Rudy Giuliani and the other liars and thieves who continue to help Trump try to steal this election, they should all be charged with treason and sentenced to death by their choice of lethal injection, the electric chair or standing in front of a firing squad. The damage these wannabe communist dictators have caused to our democracy will be impossible to repair if they are not held accountable for their high crimes against our country. Charges of treason should also be filed against these truly fake news organizations like Newsmax, One America News, and Breitbart, as these people know Joe Biden won this election fair and square and are stirring up false charges of election fraud just to build their ratings and online clicks. I would hate to be any one of them when it comes their time to stand before God on Judgment Day. Scum of the earth is what they are.

.

It will be interesting to see what Donald Trump will do with his life after January 20, 2021. It would be nice if he just faded into obscurity, but we all know that will not happen. He has been the most indescribable president we have ever known. He is egotistical and vengeful, and the Biden administration will hear from him. There are a lot of slangs that will describe his attitude: He will be a pain in the butt; he will be a bee in your bonnet, he will be a burr under your saddle. You can use your creative juices and think of a lot more words to describe him. On the positive side, my Twitter stock is making me a lot of money.

.

Though the door of my heart be open, my words are not enough. Only you know my wanderings in the shadows of the night when I am crying in the rain. And though my tears be as dust ascending upward from the earth, they, everyone, return to the place from whence they came. Much like the tumbleweed that is caught in a spiraling windstorm, hope is driven downward and carried ever so far away. Calling out from the depths of my soul, longing to hear your voice and yearning to be close to you. I wish you were near; wish you were here. The midnight writer.

.

Would you buy a used car from Donald Trump? He would probably tell you that it had belonged to Ralph Nader’s mother and she had only driven it to church on Sundays if it wasn’t raining. What does that tell you about Trump’s character?

.

Hello everyone. Looks like Joe is heading to the White House. Hopefully he can stay awake to get there. Heard he was going to appoint Hunter to be the ambassador to China, since he already has his fingers in their checkbook. I also heard Joe’s theme song at this inauguration was the old Alice Cooper song, ‘Welcome to My Nightmare.’ Well, let’s all pray the Democrats don’t mess up what Trump put together, and everyone prosper for times ahead.

.

To the Trump supporters: The people who voted Trump out of office are your neighbors, friends, and family. They are Americans, just like you claim to be. Before you start shooting at your neighbors, friends, and family for casting a different vote from you, be warned: You do that and we won’t leave enough of you standing to pass on your lies and propaganda to another generation. Count on it.
