Today's Opinions

  • LETTER: Relay thanks, again

    In thanking all of the American Cancer Society’s 2009 Relay for Life Teams, I incorrectly named the “Highview Angels” as the “Hillview Angels”.  We do appreciate their hard work in making Relay the success it was.   The participants from Highview Church are an important part of our community and we thank them for participating.

  • LETTER: Time to wake up Spencer County

    There are a few things that have been rattling around in my head lately, and I want to apologize ahead of time if I bounce around a little. 

    First to Pike County Judge Executive Wayne Rutherford, we agree on one thing and that is the resignation of David Jenkins (my ears just starting burning from all the talk with that comment).

    Come on people what would you do if you if you found out someone has been using your credit card without your knowledge?

  • LETTER: Respect the voter, no matter the choice

    I certainly hope not. There is no need for this issue to split our community on a long term basis. This is my answer to Editor Robin Bass’s question from last week’s Spencer Magnet, “Will the alcohol vote split the community?”

  • LETTER:Politicians need health care reform

    I keep hearing about all the protests at the Town Hall Meetings all over the  country about the Health Care Reform. But no one has brought up the fact that if the President’s Health Care Reform is so good – how  come all the politicians have their own Health Care Package for Life?  If the Reform is going to work, then the President himself and all politicians should have to be a part of it – it should affect them as much as the American people – then see how fast it would get through Congress!

  • LETTER: "The devil made me do it"

    Hopefully to bring closure to a sad, uneventful and insulting saga I am in continued contact with the F.B.I and Scotland Yard to help bring KACo’s “master and mysterious identity thief” to justice. The only problem is both agencies say this “phantom of the imagination” does not exist.

    My investigative sources tell me no identity thief would be dumb enough to take a felony prison rap of ten years just for the pleasure (I Guess) of watching a bunch of naked women dance on a pole.

  • LETTER: Democracy at work

    Do you feel it in the air? Can you smell it? Most of all can you hear it? 

  • LETTER: How about some honest journalism?

    I am amazed you printed Carl Turner’s letter in last week’s Magnet. I began becoming politically aware more than twenty years ago. I’ll give an example from a different newspaper.

    “Police gun down man who allegedly shot officer.”

  • LETTER: Building on park's field day

    Spencer County Parks and Recreation Department would like to thank all the sponsors who helped to put on our first-ever field day. We hope to build from this event and continue to host events for our youth.

    A special thanks goes to: Peoples Bank, Citizens Union Bank, Spencer County Insurance, Spencer County Farm Bureau Insurance, Dollar General, Creekside Florist and Gifts, Shelbyville Walmart, Dairy Queen, McDonald’s, Hometown Pizza, Snappy Tomato Pizza, Cindy’s Consignments, Plum Creek Rentals, and all the kids who participated.
