  • Shelby county steps up to the plate

    Recently our community suffered a tragic loss with the fire and destruction of the Mt. Eden Fire Station. Since then we have witnessed quite a bit of public outpouring in support of the brave individuals who serve the department.
    We have been moved by the actions of citizens throughout the area who have given their time and money in support of the department.
    Specifically we would like to thank the people of Shelby county, who have stepped up to the plate, so to speak, and have hit a home run in helping their neighbors in Mt. Eden.

  • LETTER: Riley fails to give account for past transgressions

    John Riley yet again fails to give an account for his past transgressions against taxpayers, but instead chooses to create and embrace a lie and distortion to remove all attention away from the real issues he is being exposed on! Riley stated in a political ad that the negative political attacks of the quote, Cheek/Trageser campaign ad were taking Spencer County in the wrong direction.

  • Election season is the time to step up or shut up

    Elections are an important part of what it means to be American. Every two years we are treated to very significant and important elections, not just for our local races but for the national races as well.
    During these election cycles, those people who are dissatisfied with the current state of affairs can either run for public office themselves or back candidates that they feel are more in line with their particular points of view.

  • School is back in session

  • School Board takes right approach

    I would like to say that last week marked my first foray in a Spencer County Board of Education meeting and I would like to say I’m impressed.
    For many months I listened as former Spencer Magnet reporter, now freelancer, Mallory Bilger sung the praises of the school board’s efficiency. Now after experiencing it myself I must agree.
    For those of you with little or no experience dealing with the board, you should know that their agendas are generally the easiest to follow of any county agency I have dealt with so far.

  • LETTER: Keep KSP as dispatch services provider
  • Congratulations to the Fair Board for a job well done

    The Spencer County Fair has come and gone and we have made a few observations regarding the event. First it should be said that fair volunteers put in hours of work to prepare each and every event enjoyed by fair goers this week. Many times this week, staff with The Spencer Magnet witnessed volunteers running from one event to the next to make sure things went as smoothly as possible. The diligence and sacrifice of these individuals was very impressive.
