    I agree with anonymous and not so much with Mr. X. If you decide to drink and drive then you should pay the consequences. Just think if this was your family member that this happen to.

    Why is Letcher County left out when covering the news? Many times facts are not correct when WYMT covers events or accidents in the county. Recently the water problem in Whitesburg was covered and Don Childer's Bulk plant was pictured during the story when the actual spill location was 1/2 mile up stream, behind Lee's Famous Recipe. Everyone in Letcher County knew it and wondered what the bulk plant represented. Today you covered an accident in the Colson Commuity and said it was in the Sandlick Community. A 28 year old woman and her unborn child were lost. These are not the only ones that have died in this location within a one mile stretch of highway. Getting your facts straight on TV may force the police to take care of the problem we have in our area. The same people have tormented the Colson Community since the 1970's and nothing has been done. Accurate coverage of this story may help in this area.
