Today's Opinions

  • 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.
