Today's Opinions

  • LETTER: The deceptive cost of liberal socialism

    I was talking to Phyllis Oliver recently and the conversation dealt with her intese frustration and aggravation of all the taxes she is forced to pay.

    A few hours later, Mrs. Oliver made a motion at the Spencer County School Board special tax rate meeting to raise the school tax rate by 4 percent.

    Oliver is a school board member, you see. Why would she act in this illogical manner? I believe she suffers from a condition affecting her perception of reality and logic. It is called socialism.

  • LETTER: Now that’s a burger

    Everyone loves a dollar burger and no-one is more excited about our county’s growth and prosperity than yours truly. I wanted to take a moment, however, to encourage you to remember a locally created cheeseburger worthy of Food Network coverage. These burgers have been hand patted into many of the hearts of our county’s finest for nine strong years. Citizens of Taylorsville, if you have not had the pleasure, please make a point to visit L & S Diner and enjoy what could be one of the nation’s premier burgers.

  • LETTER: Show compassion for cattle owners

    I’m writing in response to the article about the Mt. Eden man who’s fed up with cattle on his property, which printed in the October 22 issue of the paper.

  • LETTER: Cadets honor veterans every day

    This letter is to correct an important omission from last week’s Veterans Day coverage.

    During the morning Honors Ceremony at the First Baptist Church and the Parade on Main Street, the presentation of the Colors was performed by the Nelson County High School Air Force Junior ROTC Color Guard.

    Last week’s article made reference to the speaker’s question about whether people would basically go about their business and forget our veterans after the ceremony.

  • LETTER: Cow owners rebut Magnet story

    I am writing in regards to the article about the cows that were on the front page of the Spencer Magnet on Oct. 22. The article sounds as though my husband and I let our cows roam free. However, that is not the case.

    First, this cow issue happened in the summer/fall of 2007.

  • LETTER: Thanks for keeping promises

    In times when promises are made politically that may or may not be promises that can be made or kept, I pause to say thank you to Judge Jenkins.

    He promised the citizens of Akins Road – and our Magistrate Bill Drury – water, then a road. We have both and done in a timely manner once all the paperwork was in place.

    For that, I again say, thanks.

    I also wish to thank the road department for the ease of being able to continually travel our road. Thanks.

    Let us work together to make Spencer County a home and a playground!

  • A MATTER OF OPINION: Journalists, stay on the fence

    As editor of a community newspaper, I am always trying to walk the fence when it comes to writing news stories. I never want to be seen as being in someone’s camp, as they say, especially when it comes to covering local issues.

  • LETTER: Politicking at Trick-or-Treat on Main

    I want to thank the Spencer Magnet and those that helped to organize last Friday’s Trick or Treat on Main Street. I know everyone enjoyed the evening and seeing the happy faces of our community’s young people certainly made it all worthwhile.

    The opportunity to participate in events like these and to get to know our friends and neighbors better makes living in a small town so enjoyable.
