  • Reader upset over dispatch issues

    I would like to share what happened to a family member of mine on Thursday morning, Dec. 23, 2010.

    My sister who works in the Critical Care Unit at Baptist East Hospital was on her way to work at 5:30 a.m. in the morning with her three children. She was taking them to her mother in laws, when she struck a deer on Highway 155. Obviously, she was upset but she took the time to check the children and herself before calling 911 to have a police officer come and take a report.

    As everyone is aware we have changed dispatching services to Frankfort State Police post.

  • COLUMN: A year of blessings in 2010

    By DOUG MARTIN, Religion Columnist

    I recently overheard two individuals talking about Christmas. In their conversation, one explained that they were not going to have a big Christmas this year because things had been kind of rough around their house. I was sad to hear of their hardship but I was reminded that in life we all face rough times. What has 2010 been like for you?

  • LETTER: Local church thanks community for support

    We’ve just completed another successful fall festival, making this another beautiful day for our church and community. We celebrated a day filled with fun activities for children, yard sales, good food and spiritually uplifting gospel and country music.

    Without the support of many individuals and businesses, the festival would not have been possible. The festival committee would like to thank you for the support shown to us. No donation or act of kindness was small, each made a big impact on our success.

  • EDITORIAL: Legislators should review state retirement system

    Regardless of their merit, some bills proposed in the General Assembly never receive serious discussion or consideration.

    One overlooked measure from the 2010 legislative session has been refiled and deserves consideration and passage. It deals with state pensions for future legislators.

  • LETTER TO EDITOR: Disputes business figures

    Editor:

    In the Spencer Magnet Nov. 10, there was an article about services offered by the EDA.

    In the article it was claimed in the last two years there were 681 new businesses in Spencer County with a loss of 105 so that leaves 576 in business. I have given that some thought and find that hard to believe so I began checking.

    I asked EDA for a list and they said they don’t have a list and referred me to the Occupational License Administration. I was told I could download the list and did so. Then I started detailing it out and here is what I found.

  • COLUMN: Keep the warmth of Christmas with you all year

    It’s always a fun time of the year for those of us that celebrate Christmas, especially for those that keep the festive season in proper perspective.

    The other night I watched for a countless time one of my favorite holiday movie favorites: “Scrooged,” the Bill Murray-driven knock-off of Charles Dickens’s classic “A Christmas Carol.”
