  • LETTER: Stump driver trainer of year

    Congratulations to Mitzi Stump who has been awarded State Driver Trainer of the year by the Kentucky Association for Pupil Transportation.

    She was selected by the Directors of Transportation in our state. She will also be KAPT’s quest at the annual fall conference in Lexington September 29 at the Crown Plaza Conference Center.

    I want to personally thank her for her dedication to the Transportation Department and helping to keep riding the bus safe for our kids. Excellent job Mitzi!

  • LETTER: Youth baseball thanks sponsors

    The Spencer County Youth Baseball Association would like to thank everyone who helped out this year to make our season great.

  • LETTER: Meet the Stallions a big success

    Meet the Stallions day and the dedication of the new field was a big success. Thanks to everyone that made it out to be a part of such a special day.

    The children had a great time which made it all worth it.

    Mark your calendars for our next home game on Sunday. Games start at 9am.

    Thanks again for all those who volunteered – whether you were working or singing. We wouldn’t be where we are today without YOU.

  • MATTER OF OPINION: What you get for the money

    For the first time in 16 years, The Spencer Magnet will raise its newsstand price effective October 7. Since 1993,  single copies have sold for 50 cents, it will now take three quarters to purchase the newspaper at area retailers and paper boxes.

    Anytime the price of a good or service goes up, consumers are faced with a choice. But, before you make the decision to forego next week’s edition, permit me the opportunity to convince you otherwise.

  • LETTER: Thanks for supporting Diabetes Walk

    I would like to sincerely thank everyone who attended the Greater Louisville Diabetes Walk September 12, 2009 at Churchill Downs.

    Our family was once again blessed to have so many people come together for our daughter and all the children and adults who suffer from juvenile diabetes. 

    We extend our thanks to the SCES Dance team, the SCMS Drum Line, and the SCMS Cheerleaders. We also would like to thank the 125 walkers that joined us that day!

  • LETTER: "No choice but to resign"

    Isn’t it funny how two little letters can change the meaning of a word so much. Look at how we can turn “famous” in to “infamous”. Famous as defined by the dictionary is to be widely known and celebrated. Infamous is defined as having a reputation of the worst kind.

    Our county judge has become widely known because of all the recent media coverage. Certainly, he must be considered famous as defined by Mr. Webster.

  • LETTER: Seniors need safe passage on roadways

    Wednesday morning as I made my travels around town as usual, I was headed home when all at once I saw what would turn out to be a very humbling experience.

    It should not have surprised me knowing Bill Goodlett as I do. I remember one time when he walked and hitchhiked all the way from Washington State to Taylorsville to visit his dying sister. By the way he made it.

  • LETTER: A call to stand up to cemetery board

    I’m writing because when we pay for a lot to lay our love ones in, we really still have no say so over it.

    I paid for a lot to put my dad and I can’t do anything up there I want to do. I can’t put up a cross behind the headstone and he is at the fence row. I own one grave at the left of him and three at the right of him.

    I was told my flower bed had to come down. The glass stuff on it had to go and letters were being sent to others over the same things. Nothing on the sides of the head stones; only 12 inches in front of it.
