Today's Opinions

  • LETTER: Don’t get along just to get along

    Can’t we all just get along?
    You hear that stated all the time, but if our founding fathers had just all got along we would still be a British Colony. There are times to get along and times to dissent. Dissension is good, it causes thought and discussion, but some can’t discuss, they want to argue and suggest their way is the best way and there’s no need for change or you’re just negative and causing trouble. They may form a defensive circle to ward off any constructive criticism and shut you out.

  • LETTER: Donations needed for military baseball event

    The Knights of Columbus of All Saints Catholic Church hit a “homerun” for our troops in Afghanistan by their generous donation to Guard Duty, Inc., to ship over to Afghanistan supplies for the “SFC Sammy – Chevy, Baseball and Apple Pie Event,” an all-American day of playing baseball, popcorn, peanuts, Cracker Jacks and apple pie for our combat troops.
    The Knights financial aid will help ship to Afghanistan the ball equipment plus four cases of apple pies, two cases that were generously donated by a Taylorsville grocer.

  • LETTER: Thanks for free sports physicals

    On behalf of Spencer County Middle and High schools, I would like to express our sincere gratitude to Dr. Thomas Crain (Creekside Family Medical) and Becky House (Spencer County Physical Therapy) for hosting their annual sports physical clinic.
    On June 18, 76 student athletes received free sports physicals. This marks roughly 10 years of service that they have graciously provided to our community. How very lucky we are.

  • LETTER: Worship on the Sabbath

    [In the June 22 edition], your religion writer wrote about Judea winning its six-day war and America losing the Vietnam War.
    Why did Judea win the war? Was it because Judea keeps the seventh-day Sabbath and America chooses to keep the Roman Sabbath?

    God has a reason for the Sabbath – a purpose in it. Those who assemble to worship God and the Lord Jesus Christ in any way contrary to the way or the time that God’s word commands are not worshipping him in spirit and in truth. God will not accept their worship.

  • LETTER: Health department gets high marks

    On behalf of the North Central District Board of Health and the public health director, congratulations go out to the Spencer County Health Coordinator Leigh Stratton and the employees of the Spencer County Health Department for receiving an exemplary report for services rendered and for their overall operation of the facility.

    Recently, an audit was conducted by the Commonwealth of Kentucky’s Health and Human Services Division and the Spencer County Health Department was successfully compliant in 649 categories out of 650.

  • LETTER: Thank you to Annette King

    Much has been written in the Magnet concerning our outgoing executive director of our Economic Development Authority. Many local residents and business owners are deeply saddened by recent actions of our elected officials to stop funding the EDA. Hopefully, our leaders have a magic grand plan hidden away that will transform Spencer County into the bustling metropolis that they seem to believe is possible. If so, they are not willing to share the secret plan.

  • COLUMN: Conserve resources for future generations

  • COLUMN: Fourth of July brings communities together

    At dusk Monday night, I sat in my back yard with my husband in our fancy (read: not fancy at all) new lounge chairs waiting for the fireworks in Lawrenceburg to begin.

    We hadn’t seen each other all day – he was working, I was out of town – so the fireworks that weren’t hidden behind houses or trees set a nice backdrop for our nightly catching up on conversation.
