  • LETTER: Thanks for supporting JDRF

    I would like to thank everyone who came out to support the JDRF at our Bowling for a Cure Fundraiser. We had a great turnout and everyone had lots of fun. I would like to personally thank everyone who donated their time to help me with this fundraiser. Additionally, I would like to thank the following businesses for their support in the form of donations: The Spencer Magnet, Wal-Mart Shelbyville, DQ Taylorsville, DQ Shelbyville, Graeter’s Ice Cream, Bluegrass Bowling Center and The Sentinel News.

  • LETTER: Nobody important

     I admit it up front:  I’m nobody important.  I’m just a wife and mother of two boys and a girl, living life to the best down here in beautiful Spencer County, Kentucky.

    WEDNESDAY

    We slept in a bit after a late night. Lynn went out with some delegates to a Styx concert and arrived back at the hotel at some unearthly hour. In the morning (late morning) I went to the Minneapolis Convention Center to see and help with the relief efforts for the hurricane. The bicycle donation ride by Humana was up and going and the volunteers were busy at the convention hall assembling relief packages. It gave me a great feeling to watch people helping other folks unconditionally.

  • LETTER: School board is not listening

    I attended the August school board meeting and was very disappointed and angry over the outcome. 

    A ruling was handed down by Jack Conway stating that it was illegal to have a closed meeting to discuss the evaluation of our superintendent.  Yet, instead of accepting that, some of our board members have decided to use money which could be well spent in our schools, to fight this ruling.  And they have the nerve to say they are doing what is right for our children.

    THURSDAY

    We had to get up early for a Kentucky Delegation breakfast and commemorative photo session. It was fun to see everyone even though it was so early! We realized that this would be the last time we'd all be together. There was another luncheon today and then the last convention session with John McCain's speech!

  • LETTER: Join in the JDRF walk this Saturday

    Hi my name is Amanda Martin and I have had Type 1 Juvenile Diabetes since I was 11 years old. Today I am 14 and a freshman in high school.

  • LETTER: Great job Magnet staff

    Most of the time when I write a letter to the editor, it’s really kind of directed to the readers. This letter is actually to our esteemed editor, Robin Bass. I want to give credit where credit is due, so, Robin, make sure you publish this so that everyone gives you the credit you so richly deserve.

    Robin, I really wanted you to know that I think you and your staff are doing an outstanding job with each and every newspaper that you publish.
