Letters

  • LETTER: Reader calls out Karrer, newspaper

    The editorial published July 11, with no author listed, seems to be lacking in complete fair and impartial journalism. The quote “While we applaud the judge for trying to keep the court on task and to stop those who wish to publicly berate and belittle our public officials...”  Are you joking with the readers?
    Bill Karrer has called the Taylorsville mayor’s actions stupid and referred to specific taxpayers and officials as cowards, terrorists, bullies, etc., and The Spencer Magnet gives Karrer a free pass.

  • LETTER: Resist politically correct intimidation

    Intimidation can be a powerful weapon. Tyrants and terrorists have long-employed intimidation in their arsenal to not only keep subjects and opponents in line, but to silence even the smallest hint of resistance.

  • LETTER: Health care law won’t bring about ‘end of days’

    While flipping through my town paper and enjoying the stories about the county fair and advice on students returning to school, I then came across a little piece about the apocalypse.  
    Nope, not those loony people who believe in the Mayan Calender or Y2K survivalist, but some man who goes with the old fire and brimstone approach that (somehow?!?) the Supreme Court ruling on the health care law will bring about the end of days.  

  • LETTER: A message to elected officials

    Those of you who are elected officials of Taylorsville have been chosen to represent us, the citizens of Taylorsville. We are counting on you to be a voice for us concerning all issues that may affect us.

  • LETTER: McConnell column was ‘party rhetoric’

    Form letters not allowed? Mitch McConnell’s reaction to Obamacare is a form letter.
    It is the Republican Party rhetoric or speaking points. Mitch McConnell’s statement “common-sense,” step-by-step reforms, is the RNC’s speaking points. The only problem they can’t figure out is which foot to take the first step with. In other words, they have no plan.
    As far as tax hikes, the taxes under the Obama Administration are the lowest in 30 years.

  • LETTER: Thanks for ‘giving hope’

  • LETTER: Lapp’s columns are ‘excellent’; marriage is commitment-centered

    I want to applaud  Dr. John Lapp’s articles that appear in our Magnet. Each one is excellent.  
    With my 35 years in the field of mental heath and 58 years of marriage (with eight children), I feel my judgment is more that just a casual opinion regarding his last column on love and marriage.

  • LETTER: With Chuck Adams, our schools’ future is bright

    As a former student, teacher, school administrator and school board member, our school system has always been a source of pride. Things have not always been as they should, but currently things could not be better, nor could the system be in better hands because of its leadership.
    With Superintendent Chuck Adams receiving the state’s highest leadership award, “The Spirit of Leadership,” each and every parent and citizen should take great comfort in the fact that our system is headed in the right direction.

  • LETTER: ‘Let our elected officials take care of business’

    I am at a serious loss as I sit here and read about [the July 2] Fiscal Court meeting. Why is it that Lawrence Trageser continually has his nose in the wrong place. This man seems to have nothing better to do than to torment county officials. Why are we putting up with this?
    Apparently this man has an issue with everything that goes on in Spencer County except the fire department at the moment. He seems to have befriended members of the department.

  • LETTER: Elected officials should seek answers in the right places

    I believe some of our Fiscal Court members are listening to the wrong people. I ask each one of you to watch out for these people who are trying to keep your court confused and a racket going in your court. Be sure and take a look and see how much these kind of people have to gain.
    Some may want to run for your job. Some may be trying to force you to vote for their special interest. Some may be trying to get you to support someone running for office. It could be any one of these things.
