  • LETTER: Vote no to what?

    Has anyone seen the yellow signs that have begun to plague our beautiful county? “Vote NO” they say.

    My question is, vote no to what? Vote no to the transportation of alcohol into Spencer County? Vote no to the consumption of alcohol in Spencer County?

    I don’t think that people really understand the meaning of the vote. The vote is only about selling alcohol in Spencer County.

  • LETTER: Lack of balance in newspaper stories

    For the last three weeks I have read with interest the articles in the Magnet concerning the Wet/Dry vote.  After the first one I thought, well the next one will be more balanced.  After the second one I thought, I really ought to write a letter to the editor.  But after the last article, I simply had to respond.

  • LETTER: Please call it, "Separation of Church and State"

    I believe in the separation of church and state - but maybe not like you do.  I believe in the way it was originally intended. Most people don’t even know how this came about, so I’ll quote the author, Pres.Thomas Jefferson, as he wrote a letter to the local Baptist association after they requested he step it up and take a stand...

  • 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.

    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!
