  • 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!

  • Honoring those who serve

    “Will you forget?”

    The words of Commander Ray Swanson, US Navy, pierced the hearts of those who gathered for the Veterans Day Honor Ceremony.

    “Will you forget them after today’s ceremony? Will you visit them at the veteran hospitals?” he said.

    Swanson reminded those attending the service at First Baptist Church Saturday morning that Veterans Day is not only about remembering the 2.6 million soldiers who have died, but commemorating the 23.4 million that are living among us – many of whom still serve.

  • Three cross country runners in state’s top 20

    Spencer County’s cross country season came to a close in the cold, rainy conditions at the KHSAA State Championship in Lexington. The girls team managed to place 5th in team scoring in spite of having two runners with injuries. Bethany Crews and Adrian Gregory both suffered injuries mid-week. Gregory ran through the pain but was nowhere near her usual performance, while Crews was on crutches and unable to attend.

  • Smith runs in the Akron Half Marathon

    Spencer County marathon runner, Joe Paul Smith, recently traveled to Akron, Ohio to compete in the sixth running of the Akron Half Marathon.

    Smith completed the 13.1-mile race in 1:52:59. Due to the higher than normal temperatures, the pace was slower than typical marathons. Smith, a member of the Kentucky Hill Runners, is scheduled to run next in the Chicago Marathon.
