  • LETTER: Thanks for honoring others

    I would like to thank Signature Health Care of Spencer County for having the Hall Of Fame Cafe. It was such a wonderful thing to honor the individuals who were so well deserving for their accomplishments during their lifetime. It was such a magnificent affair!

  • A MATTER OF OPINION: What are they afraid of?

    The Kentucky Department of Education and a whole host of other taxpayer-funded education organizations are trying to influence a local court into allowing the Spencer County Board of Education to continue evaluating the superintendent’s performance in secret.

    Our superintendent who:

    • administers a yearly school budget of $20.7 million (comprised of local, state and federal tax monies);

    • is responsible for the education of 2,676 Spencer County children; and

  • LETTER: A sign for sore eyes

    The things that have changed the face of Taylorsville should be applauded and more should be done as soon as economic recovery and grants allow.

  • A MATTER OF OPINION: Positive role model

    Last Tuesday night had all the makings of some swanky awards program. Valet parking. A candlelit red carpet. White, linen-covered tables filled with shrimp cocktail and a fountain of bubbling, amber-colored refreshment.

    Wait a minute. I am in the right place, aren’t I? This is the nursing home, right?

    It was Signature HealthCare’s first Hall of Fame Cafe awards program  – designed to celebrate the lives and achievements of their residents, employees and members of the community.

  • MATTER OF OPINION: Make it happy

    Remember how it felt as kid when your birthday was a just couple of weeks away? The anticipation was excruciating. All you could do was dream about the cake, and the presents and blowing out those wishing candles.

    I can’t wait, you would think (or sometimes even say out loud), I wish it would hurry up and get here!

    Upon speaking these words, inevitably some adult would say, “Don’t go wishing your life away.”

  • BUSINESS VIEWPOINT: The Magnet is our county’s preferred choice

    For most of us, there is some measurement used to gauge our success, or relative strength, within our markets. Schools use test scores as one of their measurements of success, banks are judged by their financial scorecards, and newspapers are judged by their respective circulation numbers as compared to other media in their competitive markets.

    Once again, the numbers are in, and once again, the Spencer Magnet is the preferred print reading material for Spencer county residents.
