  • LETTER: Health department gets high marks

    On behalf of the North Central District Board of Health and the public health director, congratulations go out to the Spencer County Health Coordinator Leigh Stratton and the employees of the Spencer County Health Department for receiving an exemplary report for services rendered and for their overall operation of the facility.

    Recently, an audit was conducted by the Commonwealth of Kentucky’s Health and Human Services Division and the Spencer County Health Department was successfully compliant in 649 categories out of 650.

  • LETTER: Thank you to Annette King

    Much has been written in the Magnet concerning our outgoing executive director of our Economic Development Authority. Many local residents and business owners are deeply saddened by recent actions of our elected officials to stop funding the EDA. Hopefully, our leaders have a magic grand plan hidden away that will transform Spencer County into the bustling metropolis that they seem to believe is possible. If so, they are not willing to share the secret plan.

  • COLUMN: Fourth of July brings communities together

    At dusk Monday night, I sat in my back yard with my husband in our fancy (read: not fancy at all) new lounge chairs waiting for the fireworks in Lawrenceburg to begin.

    We hadn’t seen each other all day – he was working, I was out of town – so the fireworks that weren’t hidden behind houses or trees set a nice backdrop for our nightly catching up on conversation.

  • COLUMN: Everyone deserves a vacation

    I’m sure you didn’t notice, but I was absent from my post at The Spencer Magnet at the end of the week last week. My husband and I took a much needed trip to Chicago.
    I won’t linger on that, except to mention my bravery in stepping out onto the Skydeck at the Willis Tower. It makes one a wee bit woozy to step out onto glass, see-through flooring 103 floors up in the air. But I did it and have pictures to prove it.

  • LETTER: Citizens need to seek answers from city commission

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank the editor for the editorial “Open the doors on city government” in the May 18, 2011 paper.
    On Tuesday, May 10,  I attended the Taylorsville City Commission meeting and was very surprised to see no residents there. This prompted me to write this letter to the editor.

  • LETTER: Here's hoping 'more godliness will rise'

    Through my employment here in town and work with a local military/veteran support organization, I have grown to know and love many of the fine people of Taylorsville and Spencer County.

  • LETTER: Thanks for making Habitat golf scramble a success

    The sixth annual Spencer County Habitat for Humanity Golf Scramble was June 11 at  Tanglewood Golf Course.  More than 70 golfers from all over Kentucky participated in this outpouring of community support.

    Mother Nature cooperated, the golf course was in great shape, numerous volunteers watched for the golfers to make a hole-in-one and the golfers generously donated to Spencer County Habitat by buying “skirts,” “mulligans” and door prize tickets.
