  • LETTER: Relay thanks, again

    In thanking all of the American Cancer Society’s 2009 Relay for Life Teams, I incorrectly named the “Highview Angels” as the “Hillview Angels”.  We do appreciate their hard work in making Relay the success it was.   The participants from Highview Church are an important part of our community and we thank them for participating.

  • LETTER: Time to wake up Spencer County

    There are a few things that have been rattling around in my head lately, and I want to apologize ahead of time if I bounce around a little. 

    First to Pike County Judge Executive Wayne Rutherford, we agree on one thing and that is the resignation of David Jenkins (my ears just starting burning from all the talk with that comment).

    Come on people what would you do if you if you found out someone has been using your credit card without your knowledge?

  • Can you see God with a telescope?

    An article posted on CNN.com, Telescopes to show universe soon after Big Bang, claims the future construction of the world’s largest telescopes with mirrors ranging from 25 to 42 meters (80 to 137 feet) in diameter “will be able to show what the universe was like when it was just a few hundred million years old and emerging from a period of total darkness after the Big Bang.”

  • Volley Bears at home tonight

    The Spencer County Lady Bears Volleyball team fell just one game short of sweeping the Bullitt County schools to start off the 2009 season.

  • LETTER: Respect the voter, no matter the choice

    I certainly hope not. There is no need for this issue to split our community on a long term basis. This is my answer to Editor Robin Bass’s question from last week’s Spencer Magnet, “Will the alcohol vote split the community?”

  • LETTER:Politicians need health care reform

    I keep hearing about all the protests at the Town Hall Meetings all over the  country about the Health Care Reform. But no one has brought up the fact that if the President’s Health Care Reform is so good – how  come all the politicians have their own Health Care Package for Life?  If the Reform is going to work, then the President himself and all politicians should have to be a part of it – it should affect them as much as the American people – then see how fast it would get through Congress!
