Letters

  • LETTER: Shop local, for the love of Taylorsville

    While reading through the letters “From Our Readers” in the March 28 Spencer Magnet, I read a couple of things that really struck a nerve in me and am compelled to share with the community my thoughts.  

  • LETTER: Spencer County, Taylorsville and development

    Having watched and been involved in the course the county, Taylorsville and the EDA have taken since we moved here in 2005 and read about it from 2001, when I started reading The Spencer Magnet, I think I have a good grasp of things.

  • LETTER: Buildings, business ventures should be more open

    While Fiscal Court can’t seem to produce a long term EMS building solution and new citations have been issued for serious health violations to include a fine for EMS, county officials imposed a lock down for the temporary housing for EMS. No unauthorized personnel allowed.
    A chain was installed across the outside stairwell, provoking a violation notice from the Spencer County Fire Chief, for endangering the escape of EMS personnel in the event of fire.
    It appears their goal is to prevent me from causing them any further embarrassment.

  • LETTER: The cost of addiction is too great

    I have seen the face of addiction more than most, having a late family member, seeing the toil taken on families in this community as a paramedic, and suffering the insult of larceny — if we don’t react soon it may be too late.

  • LETTER: Thumbs up to clerk’s office, thumbs down on jobs for teens in Taylorsville

    First, I would like to comment on the Spencer County Clerk’s office. The few months that Lynn Hesselbrock has taken over the office, there is a nice change
    The employees have always been nice and helpful. But now, it is like a weight is lifted off them. They greet you with a bigger smile and I hear laughing and talking among them. There is no tension in the air.

  • LETTER: Disc golf would bring benefits to Spencer County

    I wanted to thank the staff at the Spencer Magnet for the front page article about the plans for disc golf as well as the editorial that was written regarding the future of it in Spencer County.

  • LETTER: What sensationalism?

    The Spencer Magnet did not do sensationalism. One article presenting the truth of an accident as given by the police is not sensationalism. What happened in that accident was precipitated by the actions of those in the vehicle and no one else. It was their choice to do as they did and no one forced them to do it. The newspaper was simply printing the news.

  • LETTER: Avoid storm-chasing contractors

    The Spencer County community was hit by a large and destructive hailstorm on Friday, March 2. After such an event it can be difficult to separate the legitimate local contractors from the out of state storm chasers. Here are some steps that you can take to avoid accepting offers from roof contractors that may not be up to standards nor supportive of local workers and our local economy.

  • LETTER: ‘I want to be like Mikie’

    I am writing this letter in honor of my granddaughter, “Mikie.” She cannot deny or defend because her words are lost forever.
    Only the family and friends are left to hear comments and whispers and accusations made by not knowing.
    Apparently some decided she had been glorified in her death, so it was their duty or obligation to put her in her place. I guess the media agreed — they were the ones who called, texted anyone they could to find out more and more. One media outlet even went as far as sneaking a camera in a camo bag into the funeral.

  • LETTER: Recent story was ‘prime example of sensational journalism’

    This letter will express my disappointment with the media and especially our hometown paper, The Spencer Magnet. The article (from Feb. 22), “Speed, DUI among factors in fatal crash,” had no place on the top front page.
    It’s a prime example of sensational journalism for profit of selling papers with no regard for the parents, community and reputation of two wonderful children.
    Enough is enough. [It was] another article printed at the expense of other peoples’ misery.
