Opinion

  • Friday, dozens of Spencer County’s finest were working together in freezing temperatures to save the lives of two truck drivers involved in a pretty horrific crash on KY 55.
    For several hours, beginning at around 10:30 a.m. and ending after 8 p.m., our first responders worked in extremely cold weather to clear the scene of a two vehicle accident involving semi trucks that collided at the intersection of Ky 55 and KY 1633. From my observation, they not only worked in a very professional manner, but in a safe and expedient manner.

  • The Spencer County fiscal court had a productive and interesting first day Monday, during a nearly all day session. I felt it appropriate here to list the hits and misses in the court’s first meeting as a grade of sorts to get the ball rolling on this new fiscal court cycle.

  • U.S. looks like a nation in retreat
    Want to know what a nation in retreat looks like? Look at America at the close of 2014.
    Recently, America suffered three devastating blows to freedom and order.

  • Sunday, most of your recently elected officials were sworn into their respective offices. The ceremony brought out not only the officials themselves, but family, friends and other supporters to share in this important moment. For some, the swearing in ceremony was a mere formality, as they have been reelected to positions they have held for many years. For others, it was a first of what could be many more such ceremonies as the future unfolds.

  • Remember those
    fighting for our
    freedoms

  • Last Wednesday the staff of the Spencer Magnet took to the street, so to speak, with our kiosk at the Country Mart in Taylorsville.
    Every year we hosts kiosks in order to show new subscribers what the Spencer Magnet has to offer. It is always great to make new friends, and of course to see old friends.

  • Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone, it is, for most of us, the Christmas season.
    While we all acknowledge it at different times – some barely waiting for the dishes to be cleared from Thanksgiving dinner, if they even make it that long, and others not putting up a tree or singing carols until Christmas Eve — it’s coming.

  • Regular readers of the Spencer Magnet know that every two weeks we put up a new online poll for readers to share their thoughts with us online. This week, for instance, a new question has been added for your consideration.
    Our polls are primarily provided for the entertainment of our readers and we attach no scientific validity to the results of our poll. That being said we always find the poll results interesting and many times they are actually fairly accurate regarding the outcome of certain activities.

  • Reader wants
    politicians to bury the hatchet
    Now that the 2014 elections are over, I feel it is appropriate for us to reflect on the accomplishments of our current County Judge Executive Bill Karrer. Judge Karrer has been bashed and ridiculed from several sides during this election process, many of those comments being either false or over stated. He took over his responsibilities during a difficult time in 2010. A time when our elected officials had allowed the infrastructure of the county to deteriorate in many key areas.

  • It is that time of year again. Time when the Spencer Magnet rolls out its Holiday Cash Contest, where readers can enter for one of ten chances to win $100 by simply picking out pictures from ads provided by our local retailers.
    The idea of the contest is not only to give you, the reader, a chance at winning money, but to focus your attention on our many local retailers who help keep money flowing through our local community.

  • For our twenty fifth wedding anniversary my wife and I were able to go to Paris. It was a wonderful trip, but while we were there I once again realized I am not as smart as I sometimes think I am.

  • The headline of this week’s editorial is a little misleading in that while the two things mentioned above do go together, they don’t really compliment each other very well.

  • Another election season has come and gone and today brings with it both happiness and sorrow. For many, this election has been hard fought and at times a little dirty, but what election isn’t. Voters have stepped up to the polls and made their decisions known and yet the real question remains. Where do we go from here?
