  • Bold plans to up students' ACT scores

    A small survey conducted by the Spencer Magnet last week seemed to indicate underclassmen don’t feel prepared for the college-entry indicator, known as the ACT. Only one underclassman, in a group of 13 Spencer County High students chosen by random to participate, indicated they felt ready for the test.

    “These scores are going to tell me how prepared I am to get into the college I want,” said freshman Charlissa Wakefield, who said on the survey that she felt unprepared for the nationalized test.

  • LETTER: Rethinking red and blue states

    Much has been said about the polarization of our country the past nine years, and all of the recent yelling and name-calling has only confirmed that there are lots of unhappy people out there. Looking at a map of “red” and “blue” counties from the last election, the blue making up about one-fifth of our country’s land mass, I have a modest proposal to make both sides happy.

  • LETTER: Do we really want Obamacare?

     

    We had an exchange student from England in 2002 who attended Spencer County High when Hillary Clinton was promoting her socialist health care agenda.
