Today's Opinions

  • LETTER: Uninformed of Arizona facts

    I would like to say “thank you” to Magistrates, John Riley and Hobert Judd, for recognizing the truth about the Arizona immigration bill and voting in favor of the resolution supporting Arizona. The article featured in the Sept. 15 edition of the Spencer Magnet revealed an incredible lack of comprehension of the issue by Magistrates Drury, Goodlett, and Henry, and by Carmin Gaines, Spencer County Democratic Party president, who voiced her opinion in the article.

  • LETTER: Library: 'We have been good stewards'

    Libraries are places where people of all ages and income levels visit and enjoy spending time. They hear, discover, and discuss new ideas, participate in programs, take home books, CDs, DVDs or just relax and read the paper. Many services are available to everyone free of charge at the Spencer County Public Library. After all, it’s “owned” by everyone in the community.

    In today’s difficult economic world with revenues decreasing and utilization of services increasing, public libraries are still the centers of opportunity and learning in our communities.

  • GUEST COLUMN: No tax hikes, Mr. Obama

    Only in Washington would anyone think raising taxes is the way out of a recession. And yet, that’s exactly what President Obama and the liberals who run Congress want to do.

    The tax hikes they propose would apply to half of all small-business income in America, generated from 750,000 small businesses nationwide. These businesses employ 25 percent of the American workforce. To raise taxes now on these important engines of job creation will prolong unemployment and freeze economic growth when we can least afford to do so.

  • SCES thanks Country Mart

    On behalf of Spencer County Elementary School, we would like to say thank you to Taylorsville Country Mart for their continuous support of our school.

    With the help of Country Mart, our school has collected $133,670.00 worth of store receipts.

    We receive points for these receipts, and with these points we are able to order various items for our school.

    At the end of last year, we received playground supplies, dry erase boards, electric pencil sharpeners and many other items for our students.

  • EDITORIAL CARTOON: Mid-term elections
  • LETTER: Restoring Honor Rally

    “Freedom is not free,” is a statement we have heard since Glenn Beck started his program several years ago. Recently, I had the opportunity to attend the “8/28 Restoring Honor” event that Beck sponsored at the Lincoln memorial. The focus of the event was faith, hope and charity – the foundations of our country. As a Christian, it became a pilgrimage and a challenge to attend.

    On Thursday August 26, a friend and I headed to Frederick, Maryland on our motorcycles. The ride was good and the weather was excellent.

  • LETTER: Editorial was 'hateful and hurtful'

    Letter to the Editor of a newspaper, but I was so shocked to see the article concerning the local school board last week, that I feel I need to express my opinion.

    First of all, I do not believe Robin Bass has any idea about the amount of monies which are needed to run the public schools in Spencer County. If she had taken the time to look up the information of expenditures provided, by county, on the State of Kentucky’s Board of Education website, she would have seen that the information the local board provided is the facts.

  • GUEST COLUMN: Everyday faith, take it seriously

    Everyday faith sounds so simple. Just have faith every day, but what does that mean? For believers in Jesus Christ, it means taking our faith seriously every day. It means applying our faith to our everyday lives.

    On a recent mission trip with our church, I met some young people who stopped me in my tracks. They came up after a service was over just to talk for a few minutes. Over the next 30 minutes, I got a lesson in the reality of Christian living in the modern world.
