  • LETTER: Old South homeowners oppose ‘greed,’ not ‘those who need a hand up’

    As a homeowner in Old South Plantation and a newcomer to Taylorsville, I’d like to respond to Tracy DeVore’s letter to the editor in the Oct. 12 edition, defending her home in Taylorsville Place.
    First, may I say how very sorry I am that she did not attend the meeting she referenced in her letter. Excerpts from a news article many times are not enough information to make wise judgments.

  • GUEST COLUMN: Celebrate Red Ribbon Week

    One day I was wearing my red ribbon lapel pin and a close friend of 15 years asked about its meaning. I said it was in support of Red Ribbon Week. When she asked me what Red Ribbon Week was, I was taken aback.

  • COLUMN: Fall solid waste efforts

    We are seeing the weeks fly by at an alarming rate. Christmas will soon be here. We have an overload of planning we must do now to make it work in the near future.

  • LETTER: Thanks to local law enforcement

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank our local law enforcement for the service and commitment they continue to invest into our community. While their time and resources may be limited, they work night and day to serve and protect the citizens within Spencer County.

  • LETTER: Get to know Taylorsville Place before making ‘ignorant’ comments

    I am writing this in response to The Spencer Magnet article from Oct. 5, back page, “Citizens heard at public hearing.” I am a resident of Taylorsville Place, and have lived there since August. As everyone else that lives in Taylorsville Place Apartments, I went through a very lengthy and detailed screening process in order to qualify to become a resident. It was all worth it in the end because now I get to enjoy living in a very well-managed, beautiful community.

  • LETTER: Keep rallying to support Backpack Buddies

    I have to say how wonderful this community is and how you guys really come through when someone is in need. We hosted a food drive on Saturday to help support the “Backpack Buddy Program” at our local schools. This program feeds our local children, in need, over the weekend, and for every weekend until school is out.
    The success of this food drive was due to the awesome support of our community, volunteers and local businesses. I would like to say thank you so much for recognizing this need and wanting to fill it.

  • LETTER: Thanks to Marksbury for creating ‘magic’

    Many thanks to Coach Mike Marksbury and Jim Beavers for sending us to “Disney World” Friday night at the SCHS Homecoming football game.
    Coach Marksbury became our new Walt Disney and made a dream come true at the game Friday night.
    Our son, Clint, is a senior on the varsity football team and has played football in this county since A.J. Waldridge founded the Stallions League. His senior year brings to these parents many emotions as our youngest child brings to a close his education in this county, and football has been a huge part of his education.

  • Celebrating National Newspaper Week

    This week, National Newspaper Week, some of our staff members reflect on what newspapers – The Spencer Magnet, in particular – mean to them.

    We value highly our readers and the folks in Spencer County, and we are the only local news medium whose sole interest is to showcase Spencer County and mark its history for generations to follow.
