  • LETTER: SCHS serving hot lunches for months

    I have just finished reading Kathy Lynch’s article in the October 29 edition of the Magnet. Your front page box “inside today” states that “SCHS students still brown-bagging it”; See A16.

    I am still looking at page 16 and do not find any reference to the “brown-bagging it”.

    The cafeteria has been serving “hot” lunches for months. It would be nice if you could get your facts straight and not place inaccurate information in the Magnet.

  • ELECTION 2008: Voter turn out impressive

    The only complaint heard through-out the county on this election day from voters was the long lines at the precincts. Which can only mean there were lots of people voting.

    “We have had an awesome turnout,” said Election Officer Sheriff Brent Baker as voters streamed steadily in and out of First Baptist Church on Main Street.

  • Deer hunters take to the woods this Saturday

    Kentucky’s modern gun deer season opens statewide Nov. 8. For the state’s estimated 254,000 deer hunters, it’s the most popular weekend of the year to hunt.

    “The deer harvest to this point is up from last year,” said Tina Brunjes, big game program coordinator for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. “That’s partly due to good weather, but also indicative that we’ve got a lot of deer.”

  • Maxine Ethington found

    The body of Maxine Ethington was found Sunday afternoon next to her vehicle off Beckley Station Road near Middletown.

    Shelbyville Police reported a body was found next to the car but would not identify that body. A family member later confirmed to The Sentinel-News that the body was believed to be Ethington’s. A coroner’s report was pending.

    Shelbyville Police said no foul play is suspected. The car apparently still was engaged and had run out of gas after being driven off the road, more than 20 miles from Ethington’s home on Craig Ave. in Shelbyville.

  • Veterans Day Celebration Saturday

    With another Election Day in the history books, it’s time to move on to the next big holiday. No, not Thanksgiving – Veterans Day – that time of year when patriotic Americans across the country take time to appreciate the sacrifices of all service men and women.

    This year will mark the third time Guard Duty has organized a veterans event in Spencer County, and each year it continues to grow said organizer D.J. Fee.

    “We started with the honor service, a parade and a static display,” said Fee.

  • LETTER: Better fire service, not lower insurance

    We have had many calls within the last few weeks about homeowner insurance rates in areas that city water and fire hydrants are being added. While this will improve our water supply for firefighting this will not reduce your cost for homeowner insurance.

  • Halloween meth bust

    While a successful Halloween on Main Street was winding down Friday night, and all the trick-or-treaters were making their way home to inventory their bags of goodies, the Spencer County Sheriff’s Department raided an active methamphetamine lab at 1014 Bloomfield Road.

    The house is currently empty as its owner, Michael Grubb, is still being held in the Shelby County jail for allegedly running down his estranged wife in the center of Taylorsville just a few weeks ago.
