Today's Opinions

  • LETTER: Rethinking red and blue states

    Much has been said about the polarization of our country the past nine years, and all of the recent yelling and name-calling has only confirmed that there are lots of unhappy people out there. Looking at a map of “red” and “blue” counties from the last election, the blue making up about one-fifth of our country’s land mass, I have a modest proposal to make both sides happy.

  • LETTER: Do we really want Obamacare?

     

    We had an exchange student from England in 2002 who attended Spencer County High when Hillary Clinton was promoting her socialist health care agenda. 

    Kirsty Hillier, our exchange student, saw her on TV one night, threw up her hands, and implored, “Please, Marty, please tell them they do not want to do this thing.  It has destroyed the health care system in England.”

  • LETTER: Resident urges men to get free screening

    An unprecedented eleven consecutive days of free prostate cancer screenings will be offered in the South Wing Health Horizons during the Kentucky State Fair between 10:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m.  

  • LETTER: Thankful for helpful neighbors

    While I was driving in Elk Creek last week, I experienced what us do-it-yourselfers call a “construction materials mishap”.

    This happened on 155 as I was slowing to turn on to Normandy Road, and some boards I was carrying shifted and slid into the roadway.

    Needless to say, it was a very embarrassing situation on a busy Friday morning, right in front of the new Dollar General store.

    I appreciated all who stopped and waited and asked if they could help while the mess was cleared.

  • LETTER: Relay thanks, again

    In thanking all of the American Cancer Society’s 2009 Relay for Life Teams, I incorrectly named the “Highview Angels” as the “Hillview Angels”.  We do appreciate their hard work in making Relay the success it was.   The participants from Highview Church are an important part of our community and we thank them for participating.

  • LETTER: Time to wake up Spencer County

    There are a few things that have been rattling around in my head lately, and I want to apologize ahead of time if I bounce around a little. 

    First to Pike County Judge Executive Wayne Rutherford, we agree on one thing and that is the resignation of David Jenkins (my ears just starting burning from all the talk with that comment).

    Come on people what would you do if you if you found out someone has been using your credit card without your knowledge?

  • LETTER: Respect the voter, no matter the choice

    I certainly hope not. There is no need for this issue to split our community on a long term basis. This is my answer to Editor Robin Bass’s question from last week’s Spencer Magnet, “Will the alcohol vote split the community?”

  • LETTER:Politicians need health care reform

    I keep hearing about all the protests at the Town Hall Meetings all over the  country about the Health Care Reform. But no one has brought up the fact that if the President’s Health Care Reform is so good – how  come all the politicians have their own Health Care Package for Life?  If the Reform is going to work, then the President himself and all politicians should have to be a part of it – it should affect them as much as the American people – then see how fast it would get through Congress!
