  • 150 years of highlighting you

    The Spencer Magnet has reached an important milestone this year. The newspaper is celebrating its Sesquicentennial, and with this accomplishment, we focus much of this week’s edition on ourselves as we revisit our own history in Spencer County.

    It seems quite odd to be celebrating ourselves, really. What we are most accustomed to doing is writing about and celebrating the achievements of others, so collating this edition has felt somewhat foreignor.

    Gov. Matt Bevin called on the Kentucky House to “censure and remove” lawmakers involved in a secret sexual harassment settlement if they continue to ignore his demands that they resign from the Legislature.
