    With incumbent magistrates David Goodlett and Hobert Judd already announcing that they will not be seeking re-election next year, candidates are lining up to take their place.

    In Judd’s Waterford District, two more candidates have filed to fill that seat, joining Tim Brewer who filed last month.

  • School resource officers offer more than security

     

    Following the tragic shooting at an elementary school in Newtown, CT several years ago that left 26 people dead, including 20 children, many communities worked to place armed police officers inside schools as a deterrent.

    The City of Taylorsville and Spencer County Schools partnered together for such a program and for the past four years, two school resource officers have become familiar sights inside the halls of the local schools.

  • Celebrate our past, focus on our future

    Last week, we at The Spencer Magnet turned back the clock as we took a look back at 150 years of covering the news in Spencer County. Our graphic designer, Jeff Sopland, did a lot of the tedious legwork of putting together many of the pages of the special section and researching old issues. Both Landmark and The Magnet were pleased with how it turned out. Much of the credit goes to Jeff.

  • Police in schools a good idea

    When I was in the fourth grade, I climbed onto a yellow school bus near Gilman Avenue in St. Matthews and saw an armed soldier at the front of the bus.
