  • GUEST COLUMNIST: Kill Saturday mail? Not so fast

    National media report that Saturday mail delivery may go the way of the milk wagon, and that a wide majority of Americans think that’s ok.

    Hold on.

    Congress must act first, and that is not likely to happen soon. Some Congressional leaders worry about trimming mail service, even if only 35 percent of people surveyed by Gallup last summer disapprove.

    Poll results are guided by the way questions are asked. They don’t give a full picture. Knowing that, Congress is not yet ready to decide.

  • LETTER: 'Bad behavior' by judge-executive

    Enough is enough! 

    While the country struggles to re-write it’s ethics code, our county judge executive continued his fall from grace last weekend.  He added to his misuse of the Kentucky Association of Counties credit cards, by being arrested by the state police near Fisherville for drunk driving!

    How bad must his behavior get? 

    He has made Spencer County the laughing stock of the Louisville Metro area.  He has shrugged off every misconduct and now dares to run for re-election!

  • LETTER: Unhappy with all but Drury

    The Spencer Magnet reads like everyone is running for something this election year.

    The candidate John Riley seems like he is in no hurry to say his two cents worth. Is that because he has already said too much? He had to go for the insurance premium tax.

    Woodie Cheek does not have to be elected for he is already a judge. He judges everyone but himself.

  • LETTER: Jenkins 'needs help'

    Fortunately, a possible tragedy was avoided due to the “one law fits all” policy of the Kentucky State Police.

    Spencer County Judge Executive David Jenkins could have severely injured you or someone you love while driving drunk.

    Sympathy should be reserved for those that do not have control over their actions. Once again, he will say, “I did nothing wrong.”

    Hopefully, political favors will not be given by the county attorney.

    State Representative

    With the last full working week of the 2010 legislative session of the Kentucky General Assembly behind us, much was accomplished as we closed in on final details of the state’s budget, road plan and passage of bills.

  • GUEST COLUMN: A budget Kentuckians can live with

    by GARY TAPP

    State Senator

    The Senate passed its version of the budget and we are now working with the House of Representatives in a budget conference committee.  This committee is charged with working out the differences between the House and Senate version of the budget bills.

  • LETTER: Cut waste: Start with politicla signs

    Cut waste: Start with signs

    My hat is off to John Riley for vowing in his campaign for Spencer County Judge Executive not to enter the “political yard sign war” until after May 1.

    Yes, these signs have their usefulness in an election, however the clutter of our highways and neighborhood streets with yard signs months before an election can simply get out of control and become an eyesore.
