Today's Opinions

  • LETTER: Fiscal Court should spend our tax money wisely

    I read in The Spencer Magnet this week that we had a lot more foreclosures. Have we ever asked ourselves what causes all of this bankruptcy and foreclosures? Could it be our tax structure is so high, we do not have enough money to meet our obligations?

  • LETTER: Vote Nation for County Clerk

    Are you struggling to make a decision about this year’s election? Let me give you a little information that might help you out. The County Clerk’s race is surely to be a hot topic for the next couple of weeks.

  • Thanks to our team behind the team

    Last week, we ran a photo on our sports pages that showcased the “water girls” for the Spencer County High School football team. The photo was labeled “A team behind the team,” and I erroneously left out the girls’ names from the cutline information.
    You’ll find that same photo in the paper this week with those names included to make good on my mistake. This photo, submitted to us by Spencer Countian Ed Curry, inspired me to give a shout out to some of the team members behind our team here at The Magnet.

  • Hesselbrock has improved clerk's office

    In May, my husband and I retired in Taylorsville after living in many other states, though never in Kentucky. Before purchasing our home, we often visited the Spencer County Clerk’s Office researching the prospective subdivision. We found the clerk’s staff to be very helpful, knowledgeable and courteous. We were given undivided attention and at the end of our search we were confident with making our decision.

  • LETTER: Give David Floyd two more years

    I would like to take this opportunity to encourage my supporters, and all voters, to vote for David Floyd for Kentucky state representative.
    It is so important today to keep a voice for conservatism representing our interests in Frankfort. It is more important than ever, since conservatives, in the form of republicans, are within six seats of gaining control of the House of Representatives, which would mean that many of the issues David Floyd has been fighting for would be heard and brought to the floor for a vote.

  • LETTER: Vote for experience in the county clerk's office

    Do you want a Spencer County Clerk who doesn’t consider the office an arm of any political party? Abbigail Nation has the experience to know that the purpose of this office is to serve the public according to the Kentucky Constitution, not to make points with whatever administration is in power.
    In the interest of good government, don’t you think it would have been better management to keep an experienced deputy county clerk on the job?

  • LETTER: Schools could 'do without' in some areas, like the rest of us

    Our school board raised its tax rate recently after the superintendent said they needed to raise taxes or “do without.”  I really do feel sorry for them, but who isn’t doing without this year?

  • EDITORIAL: High fives and well-deserved pats on the back

    Parts of Taylorsville are starting to shine lately, and pats on the back are due to be handed out in at least three different places.
    First, how about a high five and a  job well done to the Main Street Phase II contractors, as well as the engineers and Main Street Committee members involved.
    It’s rare for a project that is closely watched by both local and state agencies to finish ahead of deadline. Not to mention an “unofficial” deadline of this past Saturday’s Progressive Dinner.
