Good Morning Pike Countians!!!

Main Topics are:

Stop the Fire Fee Tax
Find out how much was wasted on ATV Trail System
Find out how much was wasted on Coal Mountain Project.
Find out why the New Millard School has not been built.
No New Tax until boards and fiscal court passes balanced budgets that cut the waste and excess.

Coal severance for non-coal job projects only not wasted on projects that are not job creation related. The coal severance was set up for non coal jobs for when the coal business shuts down, not walking tracks and horse trails.

I had a very similar incident happen to me. I was a victim of domestic violence and as soon as he was served, he turned around and filed a domestic violence against me alleging that it was going to happen in the future.

I would like to know what case number so I can look at your pleadings on PACER [Federal court]

My Friends, I think it would be best if the "HIGH SHERUFF" should resign immediately, Its quite obvious the he has lost total control of the department, he has no control over the employees, why should this joke go on any further?

It is kind of Ironic that the editorial section of the News Express was on one of our concerns.

The Editorial was about the promised ATV trail, Williamson and Mingo county has had theirs for years and reaping the benefits from it. We are at least 8 years into it and hundreds of thousands of dollars and they quit even talking about it down at the fiscal court.

Our votes don't count in the presidential election, so no promises are made to us to do or not do. If you want to change anything, change the electoral process. No one made a big deal about smoker's losing their right's, now guess what, they are taking away things that effect you. I may not be a smoker, but I knew what was up when they pushed their policy on everybody else. If you had told a smoker 20 years ago where they could or could not smoke, they would have told you to go to hell. Today we don't have anyone with spine that would do the same when it come to personal rights or constitional right. You may get 50 or so people together for a rally, but not one dedicated to back you or themselves up when push comes to shove. If you want to take back our county or country, your about 20-30 years too late. The other countries are not buying houses in Detroit or other cities, they have bought blocks of the city. I would bet China owns more land here than the citizens do. The national debt that is getting so much air time here lately, you can't keep spending when there is nothing being paid on your loan. Quit paying on loans you have and see how long you last before your in some deep crap. Not hundreds, thousands, millions, billions, but trillions in debt. How long till our currency is not recognized? No one will be able to buy or sell without the mark, sound familiar? People should get their affairs in order, this country has snowballed into debt and sin, and there ain't no going back. If you see someone who has all the answers, say hello to the antichrist. I had doubts about religion in the past, but I now am a true believer because of what I see and hear on a daily basis. I don't believe it was a sin to question religion, but knowing what I know now, it would be a major mistake of anyone not to accept it as truth. This being topix, I expect to be heckled and made fun of, but I wrote this from what I feel about this country and where it is headed. Muslims believe that the western world is wicked, they are not the ones who decide our fate, but their line of thinking is not far from the truth. I don't hate Muslims or any other people by their faith, but there are evil people from every region of this earth. I'll not be the one to throw the first stone at anyone, knowing what I have learned from my stay on this earth. I hope this country does change it's ways and return to what it used to be, but I think we've gone too far over the limit this time.

This is a local grass roots thread or movement to change what we can locally. We have little impact on the national stage but we can effect elections and make changes at the local level. We can effect the job market and the economy if we stay on the fiscal court to spend coal severance money on job creation and stay on them to keep expanding the tourism industry. We can effect how they formulate budgets in tough economic times and make them quit the tax and spend waste, spend on essential programs and cut the fluff and the waste.

This is local, we are not trying to solve the worlds problems, "Pike County Speak Out" Pike County we have enough to be concerned with local, the world will take care of itself.

I was told by a reliable source that Wayne T.is quite pleased with himself at spending approximately a quarter of a million dollars to re-vamp the club house of the newly named "Jack Sykes Golf Course." These were COAL SEVERANCE DOLLARS!!!!! Wayne T. has county employees laid off while he may or may not be using jail inmates to do jobs a county worker could and should be doing. Couldn't those dollars have been better spent on our Pike countians who are out of work? It's COAL money, not GOLF money. We already have a golf course for tourism. I guess WTR needed his ego stroked and the hope of a good "back-scratching" from JS somewhere in the future. It's positively obscene!!

Well that has always been a very suspicious collaboration and partnership. Just look at all the no bid contracts Sykes Engineering has got over the last eight years! All the thousands of dollars for feasibility studies for projects that never get built. Mapping ATV Trails that never got built. Cozy little relationship there and as you said thousands of dollars of coal severance and general fund money wasted. It may be that no one but Sykes bids on this stuff but it must be nice to be the only engineering firm in town.

It is good to know Wayne and Sykes are up in the Clubhouse counting their money while the county goes to hell in a hand basket. Don't worry as the coal industry and jobs go away ole Wayne will always raise your tax and try to make you believe you didn't get your taxes raised. Could not get an ATV trial for all the thousands that pump money into the economy by buying those machines local and maintaining them local, buying the gas and trail supplies local but can construct a golf club house for the few elite that play their rich mans game.
If he spent 1% of his time trying to bring non coal jobs into Pike County since the coal business is going away he might not have to tax the property owners out of house and home. As the coal industry pays less into the tax coffer's his only remedy it to let the property owners make up the difference.
I would hate to play skins golf with him because if he is as good at playing golf as he is skinning the tax payer I would lose on every hole.

Attention All Eastern, KY Residents

We at The Future of Eastern Kentucky have started a petition to send to Frankfort and DC Demanding them to bring jobs to Eastern, KY So each and every family has a fair chance to achieve a better living. We are poverty stricken from the impact of job loss here; we want a better life for families in this area. We ask each and every one of you to sign our petition and have your voice heard!
The recent loss of jobs in the coal industry stuck a devastating impact on each and every person in Appalachia. I have listened to many people say they are not affected by coal so why should they worry. What people donít realize is every dollar that passes through this region has been in either a miner of someone who is related to the industries hand before ours.
With the above being said we just want to clarify that our petition only deals with the coal industry as to bringing jobs in to replace the ones lost due to downfall of coal in Eastern Kentucky. We arenít Anti anything, we are Pro People, Pro Jobs, and Pro Community. Our goal is to get both the Democrat and Republican Parties working together to bring back jobs to our great community we live in. Please join our site and sign the petition if you haven't.

Thank you

Well, it's good to see sanity on this site. We need someone who is interested in something besides gossip.

This is a good step at having a United Voices grass roots effort for the good of Pike County. I for one, will help in any way I can. I hope this blossoms into a real Movement. I will spread the word as I can. Thanks for your concern for Pike County.
