  • 'Mum'ma mia!

    Spencer Magnet reader Lynn Noel sent in these photographs of one healthy chrysanthemum owned by Ted and Betty Goodlett of Bloomfield.

    Noel said that the five-inch pot mum was purchased in the spring and later transplanted under this flag pole.

    “It seems to have found new life,” said Noel. “I pray that our service men and our country find new life under her too.”

     

  • LETTER: A difficult issue for the community

    I commend the Magnet for the attention they have given the Wet/Dry vote.   I have been both informed and motivated by what I have read.   I especially commend Brent Schanding for all of his hard work. 

    I would also like to thank Pastor Goodlett for his thoughts.

    I believe the Magnet has gone above and beyond in this special topic in detail, fairness and openness. I hope that we are able to continue to be blessed by this local resource.
