Today's Opinions

  • LETTER: Not adhering to Constitution is the problem

    Whatever happened to the “separation of powers” mandated in our Constitution? Our Founding Fathers gave us this framework because they understood that power corrupts and that those who do not understand the lessons of history are condemned to repeat them.

  • A MATTER OF OPINION: Sharing memories

    Big box stores are trying to get me excited about their back-to-school sales, but – like many people – I’m still trapped in a summer daze.

  • LETTER: In response to pool company complaint

    I am writing in response to a letter I read in last week’s paper concerning the owner of Taylorsville Pools.

    We have done a lot of business with Jim Kannapel since the opening of his store and we find him to be a very nice man.

    We bought a pump for our pool back in May and had some trouble installing it. We called Jim and he immediately came to Wakefield to help.

  • LETTER: Thanks from Monroe family

    My husband, Kenny, and I were in last week’s edition of the Spencer Magnet on the front page.

    We want to thank Reporter Mallory Bilger.

    We also want to thank everyone for their prayers, visits and cards.

  • Gulf oil spill recovery: Advice for those wanting to help

    By the Better Business Bureau

  • LETTER: Native American fest canceled

    It is with great regret that I send you this news but we need to make the people of Spencer County and Taylorsville aware that we will not be able to host a Native American festival this year.

  • MATTER OF OPINION: Is patriotism lost?

    Happy 234th birthday U.S. of A!

    Time to get those barbecues fired up for this weekend’s backyard festivities. Let’s see, we need burgers, hot dogs and chips. Check! A cooler full of Cokes. Check! Plastic cups, plates and utensils in shades of red, white and blue. Triple check! Oh, yeah, don’t forget to stop by the nearest fireworks stand. You know how the kids love sparklers.

    I enjoy a family get-together as much as the next person, but is that all the Fourth of July means to us any more? Is it just another commercialized holiday?

  • LETTER: Thank you for celebrating my life

    I would like to thank everyone for their attendance at my celebration of life party. Also, I would like to thank the community for all their  prayers and love during my time of illness. God bless you and thank you.

    Growing up in the Spencer County community and being raised in such a large and loving family, has truly given me many wonderful memories and experiences. Thank you!
