Today's Opinions

  • LETTER: “Popping the top” on the real alcohol issues

    Organizers of the move to bring alcohol sales into Spencer County have attempted to frame this debate by ignoring the real issue.

    B.J. Smith says this isn’t a moral issue, but rather an economic one. Others have said it’s not about alcohol, but about choice.

    That’s a familiar tactic that’s been used often to mask a controversial topic. Proponents simply disguise it as something more defensible.

  • LETTER: Scott Williams for Salt River Electric Board of Directors

     It’s the middle of the night and your power goes off. You find the phone book, call the toll free number and get the recording, saying there is a power outage. But you’d like to know why the power is out and get a better idea of when it will come back on.

  • LETTER: Lincoln Logs closes

    It is with sadness and a sense of great loss we will lock the doors to Lincoln Logs Child Care this Friday for the last time. Due to the declining enrollment/economy we are forced to close our doors.

    I could not walk away without publicly commending the staff for their loyalty and service. We had a great team. A well trained staff that was dedicated to providing the best of care and the best of themselves to our children and their families.

    I will miss seeing you all everyday, but the friendships will go on.

  • LETTER: Alcohol is “devil’s tool”

    The headline in the Magnet brought back memories of when I was sheriff 34 years ago. I was not for alcohol then and in the 34 years since, I have not changed by mind!

    If anyone would admit the truth, they would have to say alcohol is one of the greatest tools the devil has because it kills innocent people on the highways, in the home, and not only that, it causes innocent children to go hungry, be abused, and suffer from all kinds of other disastrous treatment.

  • LETTER: Thank you Cindy Nall

    I am writing to pay a huge compliment to one of the nicest people I have ever met.  Her name is Cynthia Nall and she manages the cafeteria at Spencer County Elementary School. 

    I am a volunteer and sometimes a substitute for the cafeteria and have seen first hand what this lovely lady does for our children and school staff.  There are many mornings that she is at the school hours before anyone else and there are countless times that she comes in at night or weekends to make sure special programs or activities are taken care of. 

  • A MATTER OF OPINION: If polls really matter

    I’ve come to the realization that polls are just a means for one group to impose their political persuasion on the rest of us.

    Why else would a new Gallup poll state that 71 percent of those interviewed place “a great deal or a fair amount” of confidence in the president to bring about an economic recovery?

  • FROM THE MAYOR: In praise of Taylorsville’s finest

    Three weeks ago I listed several accomplishments in the city of Taylorsville over the past year.  I also made mention of our goals for the future.  However, there was one department I did not report; The city Police Department.  I felt this department needed some space of its own.

  • LETTERS: Knights thank community
