• LETTER: Vote for experience in the county clerk's office

    Do you want a Spencer County Clerk who doesn’t consider the office an arm of any political party? Abbigail Nation has the experience to know that the purpose of this office is to serve the public according to the Kentucky Constitution, not to make points with whatever administration is in power.
    In the interest of good government, don’t you think it would have been better management to keep an experienced deputy county clerk on the job?

  • LETTER: Schools could 'do without' in some areas, like the rest of us

    Our school board raised its tax rate recently after the superintendent said they needed to raise taxes or “do without.”  I really do feel sorry for them, but who isn’t doing without this year?

  • LETTER: Solution needed at Normandy/55 as soon as possible

    Your Sept. 19 edition carried a letter about a great concern to not only its author, Terrance Barnes, but also to all of us who travel Highway 155/55 at Elk Creek. The letter cited the problems with the intersection of Normandy Road and Highway 155. Everyone knows what a death trap this intersection has become. It seems a month doesn’t go by without another death or a week without another bloody accident.

  • LETTER: Show your love for Taylorsville at the polls this November

    Thank you for allowing me to comment on a subject that is close to my heart and has become of great interest and concern to me — the City of Taylorsville.
    Moving from Louisville to this small town three years ago took a giant leap of faith and a little bit of courage.

  • LETTER: Thanks for help with Hundley family fundraiser

    I would like to thank you for printing the story about the horse show we held for Blake Hundley and his family. It was a huge success. Over 500 people came through the gate, we made a total of $12,010.88.
    It is truly amazing how the community came together for this special little boy.
    I would like to thank the Waddy Ruritan Club for donating the grounds and building for the day, without them it would not have been possible. Also, the Waddy Saddle Club, which let us use all of their equipment. Again without them the show would not have been possible.  

  • LETTER: A dangerous thread, and traffic pattern proposal

    Anyone who travels Ky. 155 with regularity knows that the stretch of road from Taylorsville toward Louisville is a very dangerous and fast paced trek.

  • LETTER: Keeping prom on campus isn’t the answer

  • LETTER: Applause for city commission candidates

    I applaud the four [new] candidates who have stepped forward to run for the office of commissioner for the city of Taylorsville. It is so good to know there are people willing to step forward to contribute to this community and who have the vision to see the great potential for growth and enrichment of Taylorsville while still maintaining its small town charm.

  • LETTER: No need for ‘details’ in last week’s paper

    It is with much anticipation that I look forward to reading The Spencer Magnet every week when it is delivered to our home. Unfortunately, this week’s edition was a cause for much concern on my part.
    The headline of the paper was naturally an eye-catcher, but reading the entire article about the actions of a sex offender who resides in Spencer County was enough to turn one’s stomach.

  • LETTER: Thanks for help with charity softball game

    The fifth Annual 97.5 WAMZ St. Jude Charity Softball Game at Ray Jewell Park in Taylorsville was Saturday, Aug. 11. After a great effort by the Shelburne team, the WAMZ Country Hamz came out with the win 33-29.
    The team raised a season high total of $4,295 this year, which makes our five-year total over $10,000 to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
    Special thanks to so many who contributed in different ways to help make the St. Jude Charity Softball Game a huge success.
