  • Proposal to turn jail into a museum

    As the county seeks to utilize their limited resources as efficiently as possible, a local historical group is hoping to convince fiscal court to turn one of those resources into a museum.

    For the past several months, the old jail house sitting behind the county courthouse has been vacant. Once used as a local craft store by the Spencer County Gourd Society, the jail is now being considered by magistrates as a location to safely store the county’s voting machines.

  • Tickets now available for Christmas Home Tour

    Members of the Main Street Committee are hoping to repeat last year’s success with the Christmas Home Tour with over a 100 visitors discovering the wonder of the season in private homes across the county.

  • LETTER: Cadets honor veterans every day

    This letter is to correct an important omission from last week’s Veterans Day coverage.

    During the morning Honors Ceremony at the First Baptist Church and the Parade on Main Street, the presentation of the Colors was performed by the Nelson County High School Air Force Junior ROTC Color Guard.

    Last week’s article made reference to the speaker’s question about whether people would basically go about their business and forget our veterans after the ceremony.

  • LETTER: Cow owners rebut Magnet story

    I am writing in regards to the article about the cows that were on the front page of the Spencer Magnet on Oct. 22. The article sounds as though my husband and I let our cows roam free. However, that is not the case.

    First, this cow issue happened in the summer/fall of 2007.

  • LETTER: Thanks for keeping promises

    In times when promises are made politically that may or may not be promises that can be made or kept, I pause to say thank you to Judge Jenkins.

    He promised the citizens of Akins Road – and our Magistrate Bill Drury – water, then a road. We have both and done in a timely manner once all the paperwork was in place.

    For that, I again say, thanks.

    I also wish to thank the road department for the ease of being able to continually travel our road. Thanks.

    Let us work together to make Spencer County a home and a playground!
