  • LETTER: Relay for Life thanks donors

    The American Cancer Society and the Spencer County Relay for Life 2009 committee would like to thank the entire community for their great contributions to this year's event. Because of your efforts through donations, caring deeds and involvement this experience was once again successful. Our total was close to $20,000. Our totals were down a bit but not our spirits. We will continue to fight against cancer in anyway we can. Relay celebrated its survivors and remembered those who lost their battle.

  • LETTER: Football association emphasizes safety

    To the charge that the Spencer County Youth Football Association is about winning only is absurd. The SCYFA organization has always been about leadership, teambuilding, and teaching the fundamentals of football.

  • LETTER: Fairness in Charter Government?
  • LETTER: Sports about more than playing time

    I have been a part of the Spencer County Stallions with my children for over six years and proud of it! 

  • LETTER: Coverage of Jenkins unfair

    I have sat back and read the charges against David Jenkins in our newspaper for weeks now. What happened to “innocent until proven guilty”? I suppose that doesn’t apply with our editor of the Spencer Magnet. According to the on-line poll a couple of weeks ago, this is embarrassing to our county. I agree with that, so please Ms. Bass let it go.

  • LETTER:Safety is the priority, not winning

    I am writing this regarding the letter that was wrote last week about the Spencer County Youth Football program.

    I’m a proud parent of a mighty mite player. This is my son’s third year on the team. The first year, my son played for the team, he didn’t get in the game that much. but he did get to know the game, because when he started he didn’t know anything about football. The second year, he got more playing time.

  • LETTER: Thanks for help with Light Up Salt River

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who was involved in the Light Up Salt River Festival.

    First and foremost, I would like to recognize the committee members for all of their planning and hard work. They are Carolyn Shields, Kathy Spears, Janet Barnett, Donna Forg, Leigh Ann Stratton, Sharon Thomas, David and Kristen Martin, and Troy Klaber. Without our team work this wouldn’t happen every year.

  • GUEST COLUMNIST: Health plan will increase costs for families and kill jobs

    During a recent telephone town hall, a constituent from Bowling Green told me, “Being a two-time cancer survivor, and possibly having it for a third time, I’m very concerned about health care reform.  I know money is tight for everyone right now, but I’m worried about new taxes and being forced to accept government-run health care.  I just really think if we have less government in health care, we would be better off. ”
