Sheriff Mickey Stines, you could fill the jail in one day. You could stop a hundred cars, four-wheelers and side-by-sides a day, seriously, at Black Bottom Road, Blair Branch, and Spring Branch. Drugs are brewing and we are sick of it. The stench is horrible. Do something or we are going to take the law into our own hands. Stealing, drugs, prostitution at all hours, day and night. Please do something before we have to.

I’d like to let my soulmate (K.D.J.) know that I love you so much and miss you like crazy. You are my sun, my moon and my stars. I never knew I could love someone as much as I do you. You complete me and until I see you again, I won’t be whole. Love you forever and a day, M.J.

The stock market’s up over 20 percent since Election Day. My retirement account thanks the new administration.

.

Well, I guess we all can thank President Biden for these gas prices going up. Food will go up, too, since they have to transport it in. I guess we can also thank him when our electric bill go up, and for the crisis at the border.

Let’s give credit where credit’s due and praise our current county judge/executive and magistrates for bringing back the Pamper Tree. This endangered tree had not been seen since Carroll Smith was our county judge, but thanks to our current fiscal court’s refusal to do anything about the garbage along our roadsides and creeks and the recent flood, the Pamper Tree has been restored. These trees are even more beautiful with the addition of the white and yellow plastic garbage bags that also hang from them. It is very springlike.

I’m surprised how somebody who professes to be a good Christian person can come out to my woodshed, grab my firewood and load up a wheelbarrow load of coal and hightail it back to their house with it. You didn’t think anybody would see you, did you?

To two boys off Cowan: What were you doing in a certain location with a certain girl? Well, I know what you were doing, but if her daddy finds out you all are going to be in for it.

To a certain beautiful lady from Pine Creek: Years ago I told you I would like to share a bottle of Bacardi Coconut Rum with you, and that offer still stands. Don’t let your life get past you before you take that offer.

An ordinary person’s opinion of the second amendment: A well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state; the rights of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. Article One, Section Eight of the U.S. Constitution delegates power to the federal government to call into actual service to the United States a militia from any state. Article Five of the Constitution delegates power to Congress to propose amendments to the constitution, which may then be approved by two-thirds majority vote in each the House and the Senate. But Congress cannot pass any amendments to restrict, prohibit, or abridge the rights and powers held by the citizens. Amendments must be ratified by two-thirds majority of the legislatures in each state. The Ninth and 10th Amendments protect the rights of the people in reserve to the states by giving them all powers that are not specifically delegated to the federal government. The people’s right to keep and bear arms is the people’s way to protect themselves from an all too powerful government. The federal government does not have the delegated authority to regulate the people’s access to any legally manufactured firearms. To do so would violate the imprisonment clause of the Second Amendment. In brief, remember the rights of due process and equal protection clauses of the 14th Amendment, combined with the Second, Ninth and 10th Amendments gives the people the freedom to choose the right to own and a license to carry firearms, period. Thank you.

The Big Dance includes 68 teams, so Louisville and Kentucky should be in there. According to NCAA NET, only 59 teams are better than Kentucky and only 55 are better than Louisville.

I called the bank last Monday to see if my stimulus check was in my account. They said that all I had in my account was six dollars. I just think the stimulus is something Joe Biden cooked up. You can’t believe a word he says. You can’t believe a word a Republican says, and you can’t believe a word a Democrat says. It’s all a pack of lies, anyhow.

.

The stimulus checks will kill more people than COVID 19 where they will OD with all that money that big president of ours is sending them.

.

Okay, 73 million Trump voters, stop paying your taxes. Don’t pay any more taxes. To anyone else who wants to help: Jump right in.

. I want less work and more money for not doing it. KEA.

Donald Trump was the best salesman to ever hold office. He could sell people stuff and they would believe it was good even when it wasn’t any count. He was a good salesman, but he wasn’t much of a manager. To be successful you have to have the money to hire people who are with you in intelligence. Instead, Trump hired sycophants.

.

Am I the only one who would love to see a Burger King in Whitesburg? Hint, hint. Just an idea. Thanks.

(No, you are not alone.)

.

To a certain person: I have noticed you out and about, too. And believe me, you should not go without a mask even if we don’t have a pandemic with a face like you have.

Count me in as one of those Republicans who is not going to returning her stimulus money because it comes from the administration of President Joe Biden and the Democrat-led Congress. I appreciate getting this money put in my bank account. I also appreciate the professionalism Biden has returned to the presidency and thank the Democrats for actually caring about those of us who can use this help. Given the great job he has done so far, it is little wonder that President Biden has an approval rating of 59 percent overall and 65 percent approval for his work on the coronavirus. Now I just hope our Republican Party gets back to what it should be so that I can once again be proud to say I belong to the GOP. As for now, keep up the good work, Joe.

Congratulations to Western Kentucky for winning their first-round game in the NIT. They are the second-best men’s team in the state after Morehead.

To a certain person: I don’t want to eavesdrop on you or watch you with a video camera. Who would want to? I could care less where you have your camera hooked up. Spying on you? Who would want to do that? The word is out all over town about you and the clown. The camera would probably be hooked on your buddy; watching it could be really ugly. All your secrets are out.

.

I know a man who used an eavesdropping device and he found out an awful lot about his family that would make an angel blush.

.

I’m curious about the lady at a big store at Ermine who won’t wear a mask. Is she trying to become infected or is she just trying to infect us? Either way I’m not going back there.

.

Don’t be depressed because your local meth dealer has gone to Florida. There’s one on every corner in Letcher County to take his place. So, cheer up, there are lots of places to get what you need.

.

I’m probably just wasting my time telling you that hardened criminals in prison are getting the stimulus money the same as you, along with illegal aliens. But you probably don’t care as long as you’re getting your stimulus.

.

To a certain person: You should be ashamed to say anything about putting the man and the dog on Facebook. He is a good, godly man, and you are so evil I am surprised you haven’t gotten COVID-19. The man and the dog will be praying for you and your soul.

I believe the cartels down in Mexico are outsmarting the U.S. government, the Border Patrol, the politicians and all. They are sending these people in here and getting $3,000 to $5,000 apiece, according to what the news says.

(If you are referring to the most recent $1,400 stimulus payments, you may want to find a better news source. Only those with valid Social Security numbers qualify for the third round of benefits. Still, that doesn’t mean the cartels aren’t outsmarting the U.S. government in many ways. Just look at the meth problem all around us.)

To the person who is not a psychic but has common sense: The federal government, i.e., the Internal Revenue Service, has been in possession of Donald Trump’s tax information since he began to earn a taxable income. With them not having found him doing anything wrong, will you tell us what he is going to be busted for and how it is that only you know? And as for moving out of New York City, you choose — a highrise apartment in a noise and smog-filled city or a sprawling estate in a land of green grass, palm trees and sunshine. You don’t have to wait to see him; you can visit him at one of his golf courses. And maybe he will be wearing a striped suit and picking up golf balls. Thank you.

To the lady who made the comment about me and my dog: You don’t have room to talk. Your family and your dog give ugly a whole new description.

It’s that time again to celebrate the spring equinox. We’ll boil us some eggs and we’ll bake little round cakes with crosses on them — the sign of fertility — and we’ll have orgies quicker than bunnies. That’s the way it was before Christ, and that one time that Easter is used in the Bible instead of Passover. You all are smart people. Understand this: When you celebrate this so-called Easter, you are celebrating a pagan holiday that was long before Christ. It’s Passover.

Hey, neighbor, this is the old cat killer. If that dog of yours keeps running my truck up and down the road I am going to flatten him like a pancake. Get ready for it. You have a great big old bow wow day.

To the superintendent, school board, teachers, counselors, concerned parents and grandparents raising grandchildren, from a very concerned parent/ guardian: I am very concerned about my student who is doing very poorly in the virtual learning class situation. Parents, is this happening to your child? This learning situation is a very difficult format. There is no actual contact with friends or other activities. They are basically on their own. Our children are heroes, as they are living through and doing something that no other children in our nation’s history has ever had to do. Our students have been trained to attend school and have interaction with each other since they were in kindergarten or preschool. They are being cheated. The teachers are doing their best to teach. This is something that they never expected to do. It is all new to them also and it takes time. They are all asked to do above and beyond their training and expectations. It could all be in vain if the students are not accepting the challenge and applying themselves. This ‘quarantine’ is taking a toll on all of us. These students are our next generation. As a result of this virtual teaching/ learning many of our students are not making the grades as though they were attending in-person classes with their fellow classmates. A huge percentage of last year’s and this school year’s students will not be able to go forward and should not go forward. Virtual learning is stressful on everyone involved, students, teachers, parents, guardians, and grandparents raising grandchildren. There are very few students that will make the grades and should be passed on, but there are many more that are floundering with a lack of interest and inspiration saying, ‘What’s the use? It’s too hard, I don’t understand, I’m not doing it.’ We all know when this COVID began and it lasted over one and a half seasons of our student school years. As a result, the students not only need to repeat the semesters of school they were in when this pandemic started, but will also need psychological help in all grades as well as preschool. The students do not understand that this is a pattern for their lives. Summer would be a good time for a full-time redo. We need to take a stand for our students. They are worth way more than they are being prepared for. Thank you for enduring my opinion.

There are 100 senators in Washington and Kentucky has two of the worst. Mitch McConnell has consistently put party politics above progress. His voting record shows his support for big businesses and disdain for any legislation that will benefit the working-class people. Rand Paul is basically useless. He repeatedly has tried to put himself in the limelight by challenging the highly respected immunologist Doctor Fauci. Every time he does so he ends up looking dumber. Each day in recent months we see improvements in defeating the COVID-19 virus because most of us rational citizens are adhering to the recommendations of Dr. Fauci.

To my gang gang, my soulmate, my queen: I miss you, baby. I told you I’d figure something out. Lol. We on a whole ‘nother level. I’m yours forever, girl. Like I said, ace up my sleeve. Can’t fight fate. I love you. ‘What therefore God hath joined together, let no man separate.’ Mark 10:9

.

This is to the most beautiful girl in the world. From your superman.

My true love: Now as I’m without you I’m so torn apart. My vision is blurred. I can barely see. My hands shake, my legs are numb. My heart hurts. I can’t breathe. You’re only a few doors down. It feels like another state. I’ve only been away a few hours. I stand at the window just hoping you will come out. My hands sweat, my eyes burn looking down the hall. I feel I’m in hell, the serpents ready to strike. I’m already about dead. And finally, you come out. You look into my eyes. My heart starts pounding, my body feels like it’s on fire. I’m so dizzy I can hardly stand. You blow me a kiss. As I feel it hit my lips you say ‘I love you’. Those three words, that’s all it takes to bring me back to life.
