  • 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. ”

  • LETTER: Winning at cost of having fun

    I am writing to express my opinion of the Spencer County youth football program.

    At the ages of 5 to 7, with both boys and girls playing, I believe that the game should be about teaching the children sportsmanship, football fundamentals and the kids generally having a good time

    I guess I am wrong.

    The head coach of the Mighty Mites stated at the first practice that not all the kids will get a chance to play. He stressed winning over all else.

  • A MATTER OF OPINION: Anybody out there?

    For a small Kentucky community, Spencer County has had its fair share of news coverage from TV and big-city newspapers recently. We have a county judge under scrutiny for his credit card habits, a pending wet/dry vote and $11,700 still unaccounted for in the high school’s activities fund.

    And despite all this controversy, letters to the editor have been slim. I'm perplexed.

    Surely, these – and other issues concerning our nation at large – are being talked over at diners all over town. Some topics may even trigger heated debates.
