  • A MATTER OF OPINION: Denying information at taxpayers’ expense

    Have you been following the actions of your Spencer County School Board lately? Well you should, because whether they are spending $300 or $300,000 in a lawsuit against fellow board member Sandy Clevenger, that’s your tax money they are using. Tax money to essentially deny you – and every other taxpayer in the county – the right to know how board members individually evaluate the superintendent’s performance.

  • LETTER: Thank you for helping

    September 13, 2008, was the Greater Louisville Walk for Juvenile Diabetes. I would like to personally thank all that participated in the walk. Spencer County was well represented with over 250 walkers. It is a great feeling that a community can come together for such a worthy cause! As of this date, the walk has generated over $815,000 for a cure! I’d also like to thank Hometown Pizza, Froman Drug, Country Mart, Dairy Queen, and On the Way Café for their support. Thank you also to the Spencer County elementary and  middle school dance teams for performing!

  • LETTER: Once a proud Democrat

    I have been having discussions with several Democrats lately and I am amazed at what I’ve been hearing.  Let me begin by saying that I was a registered Democrat for 25 years.  I have been a Republican for only 19 years. What happened? The Democrat party went too far to the left and it has continued the drift.

  • A MATTER OF OPINION: Debt and taxes

    Are you scared yet by the financial crisis on Wall Street? Consider this, instead of being frightened by the turmoil, arm yourself with information – not from 30 second news bites either, but from reading everything you can in newspapers, on the Internet and by watching in-depth news programs.

  • LETTER: Littering is a violation of freedom

    Big burger bags, water bottles, empty ice bags, and other garbage and litter still invade our county on a daily basis. As citizens of a democracy, we have freedom of speech, with life and liberty thrown in as a bonus. What we oft times forget, our freedoms are restricted to the point of not infringing on the freedoms and rights of others around us.

  • LETTER: A response to “Nobody Important"

    This letter is in response to “Nobody Important” who appeared in the September 10 edition of the Spencer Magnet.

    First of all, I wonder what’s really eating this person. It seems as though the writer is voting for Sarah Palin only because she is a woman. Don’t get me wrong. I voted for Senator Hillary Clinton, so this has nothing to do with me thinking that a woman can not handle the job.

  • LETTER: Lake clean-up next Saturday

    The Taylorsville Lake Conservation Association (TLCA) is once again hosting a lake clean-up on September 27. The event kicks off at the Possum Ridge pavilions at the State Park at 8 am. The clean-up will end by 12 p.m. with lunch, prizes, T-shirts, and an environmental education program from the Kentucky Fish and Wildlife.

  • LETTER: School buses are under-appreciated

    To my surprise on Thursday August 28, I found out that another stop was being added to my children’s bus route. Frustrated, I contacted the transportation department to find out what was going on, since my children were already on the bus after school for an hour.

    As I talked with Jack Senior, I began to realize that it wasn’t only frustrating for me as a parent, but also for Jack and his staff as well.
