Today's Opinions

  • The Magnet wants to hear your voice

    Interactive is not a word one often associates with a newspaper. In an age of advanced technology where messages are sent with the click of a mouse or a few taps on your cellphone, the printed word seems a bit archaic and old-fashioned.

  • Election 2016 is harsh reality

    I remember the craze and rabid interest that surrounded a television show that debuted many years ago that I thought at the time was just a poor attempt to recapture the magic of Gilligan’s Island.

    The show was Survivor, and more than just chronicling the lives of contestants who were put on a remote island to seemingly fend for themselves and survive the elements and each other, it ushered in a new form of entertainment called reality television.

  • Efforts to combat the Zika virus

    Like many Kentuckians, I am concerned about the growing threat of Zika virus in this country. As we head deeper into the summer, infected mosquitos are expected to transmit and spread the virus throughout the southern United States, including potentially Kentucky.

    Anyone can contract this mosquito-borne illness, but it is especially troubling for expectant mothers and their babies.

  • From our readers - March to Recovery draws attention on heroin addiction

    There is a great battle taking place in our communities. Too many have seen their sons and daughters fall victim to heroin and drug addiction. This has resulted in much anguish and pain for many families with the loss of life from overdoses and the daily turmoil of an addicted loved one.

  • From our readers - J. D. Shelburne thanks fans and supporters for concert
  • County fair is welcome escape

    The year 2016 has been full of political drama, locally, in Frankfort, and of course, nationally with the most surreal presidential election in our nation’s history that’s hitting a peak during convention time.

    It’s been a year of local battles over budgets and funding that took the county to the brink of a shutdown. In Frankfort, the feud between the current governor and the former governor’s family seems to play out with a new lawsuit every week.

  • Staying safe this summer

    Although summer break is coming to an end, summer weather—and hazards—will continue. However, there are a few things you can do to help keep your family safe, happy, and healthy for the rest of the season, especially while enjoying the great outdoors.

  • Main St. rocks

    Whether Spencer County native J.D. Shelburne makes it to the top of the country charts is yet to be determined, but his concert on Main Street Saturday night certainly was a hit.

    That’s a credit not only to he and his band, but to the tireless efforts of those who helped plan and coordinate the show that resulted in a couple of thousand people gathering for a festive occasion.
