  • LETTER: Don’t wait for perfect

  • EDITORIAL: Old case needs a new look

    Did Susan King of Mount Eden murder her former boyfriend Kyle “Deanie” Breeden of Shelbyville in 1998?
    That question, which for years haunted investigators and Mr. Breeden’s family, was thought to be at rest in 2008, when Ms. King was sent to prison.
    But now we have our own new set of questions about this case, including not only how the investigation has been handled but also who has a responsibility to ensure that Ms. King in fact did commit this crime.

  • LETTER: Hesselbrock brings accountability to the clerk’s office

    The elections are just a few weeks away and while the national media may be hyper-focused on the presidential race, voters in Spencer County have an equally important race to consider.
    In Kentucky, the County Clerks are responsible for seeing to fair and honest elections, locally and all the way up to the presidential elections we hear so much about. It is important that the County Clerk be honest, thorough and above reproach.

  • LETTER: Mechanic says thank you for the thank you

    So, I found myself looking at the front page of the Magnet and saw an article about the helpful people of Taylorsville.
    I am Eathan, one of the trusty mechanics, mentioned in the article. I just wanted to say thanks to Sue and all the people that tried to help her.
    Sue is one of our longtime customers at the station at Smith’s that I have met in my four years I’ve been working here at the station.
    It is always a pleasure to do work for her. Sue is always friendly and courteous and always has a story to tell.

  • LETTER: Vote your values

    In three weeks, we the citizens of the United States of America, will be asked to determine whether this country will be “One Nation Under God” as it was created to be, by our founding fathers, or whether we will fall into the same trap as our European socialist neighbors and become just one more of the many secular countries that are devolving into moral decay and economic chaos.  

  • LETTER: Thanks for support in Louisville Diabetes Walk

    On behalf of my family and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, a sincere thank you.
    Sept. 29 was The Greater Louisville Diabetes Walk at Churchill Downs. We had 7,000 people in attendance and over 300 were from Spencer County.
    We are especially grateful to our local businesses for making generous donations. Thank you to the SCMS Dance Team, the SCHS Drum Line, Cheerleaders and Dance Team for coming out and supporting the walk.

  • LETTER: Support Kim King

    I am proud to share my conservative principles with the State Representative of the 55th District, Kim King.
    A district representative is our connection to state government, and beyond to the federal level, and I believe she represents us well.
    King takes her personal pride of our community into state government, representing us, as Kentucky continues to play its vital role in the nation. King’s principles guide her to attract new business and good paying jobs to our community, as she embraces economic development, not condemns it.
