Today's Opinions

  • LETTER: Do you love money more than God?

  • LETTER: Reader would welcome decision to stop using coal ash

    Thank you for printing the letter to the editor entitled, “Coal ash isn’t best option,” in your Feb. 6 edition.
    I agree with Dave Barnes concerning the problems with using coal ash on our streets.
    The county does a great job with snow removal and brine applications and I’m very happy with those efforts. The decision to stop using coal ash would be most welcomed.

  • LETTER: Slow down on Elk Creek Road

    I have recently moved to Spencer County in the Elk Creek Road area. Since moving in, my husband and I have noticed that there seems to be some issues with people speeding. The speed limit is 45 mph, but from the stop light in Elk Creek to the church on Elk Creek Road, there are some who feel the need to go faster.
    This is increased on the weekends because neighbors and myself believe drivers think law enforcement may be more lax than on the busier street.

  • COLUMN: Make effort to dissolve training, radio issues

    EMS Director Jeff Coulter made an interesting statement during Monday night’s radio demonstration at the Spencer County Fiscal Court meeting — “All this seems like training issues and not radio issues,” Coulter said.
    This being the perception of miscommunication between the sheriff and EMS radios and the radios of the city police and the local fire department.

  • COLUMN: Hemp legislation could mean economic development

    In a 30-day “short session” like this year, it’s difficult for both chambers to fully consider all the bills that have been filed.  However, over the last two weeks, the Senate has taken early action on major legislation, giving the House more time to study those bills.
    This week the Senate passed important bills addressing economic development, the state’s General Fund debt, health care, and school safety.

  • LETTER: Thank you, Spencer County fire department

    This is a thank you to the Spencer County volunteer fire department for all their efforts in containing the fire at our farmhouse on Overlook Road on Jan. 22.
    Without your help, we might have also lost livestock, hay and barns.
    This was a job well done by many highly trained young men in a very cold early morning fire. I can’t thank you enough.
    Also thanks to a local restaurant for food and hot drinks and just a lot of emotional support. Without the help of friends, where would we be?

  • LETTER: Nursing home visits can lift your spirits

    On Feb. 20, 1993, I took a walk down memory trail. I went to the nursing home in Taylorsville and I would like to say to the people who dread facing another day and don’t have anything to smile about — just walk into that nursing home and in a few minutes if you can’t find something to smile about, then you are in worse shape that those people in the nursing home.

  • LETTER: Thanks all around for candy buy-back success

    We wanted to say thanks for the many people who participated in our 4th annual candy buy-back “Treats for our Troops” event.
    I know it can be hard to give up your hard earned candy, but your teeth and our troops say “thank you.”
    We even included toothbrushes and toothpaste in each box to keep our troop’s teeth healthy.
    Special thanks go out to the Henrichs family and Jackson Ransdell for their creativity and help.
    Thanks also are due to the wonderful staff of The Spencer Magnet for their community interest and support.
