  • LETTER: Thanks for making Lincoln Day Dinner a success

    On behalf of the Spencer County GOP, I would like to thank everyone who worked so hard to make this years’ Lincoln Day Dinner such a huge success. Karen Karrer did an excellent job in organizing the event. She also wore several hats during the night, from server to assistant auctioneer.
    The meal, catered by a local restaurant, was incredibly excellent.
    And thanks to all who set up and cleaned up, Mike Klotz, Carol and Mike Ferriell, Anita Chamberlain, Karen Karrer and Hobert and Edith Judd.

  • LETTER: Aim for a healthier heart this February

    February is the month of love and romance, and while it is wonderful to have a romantic interest at this time of year, it’s also good to “love yourself.”  It always feels great to give yourself a gift, and embracing a healthier lifestyle is one of the greatest, and cheapest, gifts that we can give to ourselves.

  • LETTER: Floyd’s columns have been ‘straightforward, informative’

    In the past few weeks, David Floyd has submitted articles to the Magnet concerning the current process of redistricting in Kentucky. I have differed with Mr. Floyd’s positions on issues before the Kentucky legislature many more times than I have agreed with him, and have told him so. However, I would like to commend him for these articles which have been very straightforward and informative.

  • LETTER: A search for a ‘Good Samaritan’

    On Nov. 2, 2011, I was in a car wreck. It happened on 155 near Elk Creek between 6 and 7 p.m.
    A young lady between the ages of 25 and 30 years old helped me until I was extracted from the car.
    I need to find this young lady to thank her.
    Please contact me at nov22011@gmail.com.

  • LETTER: Thanks for clothing drive donations

    I wish to express my sincerest appreciation to everyone who donated to the winter clothing drive.
    I also want to extend a thank you to the local businesses and the Spencer County Public Library for participating in this event by agreeing to be a drop off site for the clothing.
    The clothing drive was a huge success. The clothing was donated to the Multi-Purpose Community Action Agency to be distributed to the families of Spencer County.

  • LETTER: OWS protesters should leave camps, work in the system to get change

    There is little comparison of Occupy Wall Street to the Tea Party. The Tea Party group had gatherings on the street, but never stayed overnight or occupied anything. Its members often meet indoors to do their planning. They use contact with representatives to make changes and vote their minds to replace representatives. The Tea Party people work for a living and have no time to occupy anything but their homes and jobs.

  • LETTER: Former sheriff’s indictment not a top story

    As one of your readers, I find it disturbing that you actually choose the indictment of former Sheriff Steve Coulter as [a top] news story for 2011.  This was a classic case of “making a mountain out of a mole hill.”
    Out of all the hype and efforts to discredit and intimidate a man who served his community with honesty and integrity, it all came down to him leaving office two days early.  Really? What a waste of tax dollars.

  • LETTER: No crime between midnight and 6 a.m.?

    Sheriff gets clean audit? I have heard that hot air before, dealing with many of the audits of our elected officials. The problem with audits is you only see what is given to you.
    Since taking office, Sheriff Stump has been escalating the cost to operate his department at a fast and furious pace. Recently, he requested new carpet and furniture for the sheriff’s office.
    Stump has even been charging taxpayers 50 cents per page of open record documents. Legally 10 cents is the price allowed by Kentucky Administrative Regulation 200 1:020 section 3.

  • LETTER: Thanks for contributions for pool table

    The senior citizens that use the pool table at the senior center would like to thank those who contributed to the cost to recover the table.

  • LETTER: Thanks for making Toys for Tots a success

    Thanks to everyone for a very successful year for Toys for Tots. We need to give special thanks to all the locations that had toy boxes.
    I would also like to mention the help of Becky Wilson and her staff — they even helped on buying toys locally from money we had collected, mainly in honor of the late Rocky Walters.
    Thank you, also, to Mary Williams and her helpers at First Christian Church in Taylorsville.
    I had a helper, too, in Carol Dean Curtsinger, until he had gallbladder surgery.
