Opinion

  • In thanking all of the American Cancer Society’s 2009 Relay for Life Teams, I incorrectly named the “Highview Angels” as the “Hillview Angels”.  We do appreciate their hard work in making Relay the success it was.   The participants from Highview Church are an important part of our community and we thank them for participating.

  • There are a few things that have been rattling around in my head lately, and I want to apologize ahead of time if I bounce around a little. 

    First to Pike County Judge Executive Wayne Rutherford, we agree on one thing and that is the resignation of David Jenkins (my ears just starting burning from all the talk with that comment).

    Come on people what would you do if you if you found out someone has been using your credit card without your knowledge?

  • I certainly hope not. There is no need for this issue to split our community on a long term basis. This is my answer to Editor Robin Bass’s question from last week’s Spencer Magnet, “Will the alcohol vote split the community?”

  • I keep hearing about all the protests at the Town Hall Meetings all over the  country about the Health Care Reform. But no one has brought up the fact that if the President’s Health Care Reform is so good – how  come all the politicians have their own Health Care Package for Life?  If the Reform is going to work, then the President himself and all politicians should have to be a part of it – it should affect them as much as the American people – then see how fast it would get through Congress!

  • Hopefully to bring closure to a sad, uneventful and insulting saga I am in continued contact with the F.B.I and Scotland Yard to help bring KACo’s “master and mysterious identity thief” to justice. The only problem is both agencies say this “phantom of the imagination” does not exist.

    My investigative sources tell me no identity thief would be dumb enough to take a felony prison rap of ten years just for the pleasure (I Guess) of watching a bunch of naked women dance on a pole.

  • Do you feel it in the air? Can you smell it? Most of all can you hear it? 

  • I am amazed you printed Carl Turner’s letter in last week’s Magnet. I began becoming politically aware more than twenty years ago. I’ll give an example from a different newspaper.

    “Police gun down man who allegedly shot officer.”

  • Spencer County Parks and Recreation Department would like to thank all the sponsors who helped to put on our first-ever field day. We hope to build from this event and continue to host events for our youth.

    A special thanks goes to: Peoples Bank, Citizens Union Bank, Spencer County Insurance, Spencer County Farm Bureau Insurance, Dollar General, Creekside Florist and Gifts, Shelbyville Walmart, Dairy Queen, McDonald’s, Hometown Pizza, Snappy Tomato Pizza, Cindy’s Consignments, Plum Creek Rentals, and all the kids who participated.

  • What a charming ad by Spencer County Democrats – with the two cute little girls on horseback – purporting that they are the caretakers of “community and family values”.  I wish it was true.

  • With the worsening economy, an increasing number of Kentuckians are being victimized by fraudulent, unsolicited business offers commonly originating outside the United States.  County attorneys throughout Kentucky are reporting an upswing in this type of activity.  In one case, an elderly victim was defrauded of $1.1 million by a Canadian source before the scam was discovered and stopped.

    The most common of these scams begins with the receipt of an unsolicited cashiers’ check in the mail.

  • The Long family would like to thank all family and friends that came out to support the benefit for Thomas Long. 

    Your prayers and support have been greatly appreciated. 

    We love you and God Bless.

  • Did you get a look at the results of this week’s poll question posted online at spencermagnet.com? 

    If you could vote today, would you chose to allow alcohol sales in Spencer County?

    No     50% (39 Votes)

    Yes     48.7% (38 Votes)

    Total Votes: 78

    If these extremely unscientific results are any indication of the battle that could be before us – we are all in for a wild ride filled with heated debates.

  • Where do I begin? That's the question that has been plaguing my mind after reading the opinion letter by Ms. Furgason on July 29. I've decided that I will try my hardest to remain entirely objective. So please forgive me if I can not.

  • I notified Rep. Brad Montell in 2008, concerning loopholes I found in KRS 132.023 and .017. Better known as House Bill 44. These loopholes were directly related to the operation of any charter government. The loopholes pose an enormous threat to taxpayer's rights, afforded in House Bill 44. Montell and I quietly tried to resolve the threats in the 2009 legislative assembly, however, opposition was found. Who? Why?

  • I am writing in response to the letter “Winning at cost of having fun” that was published a couple of weeks ago.

  • The American Cancer Society and the Spencer County Relay for Life 2009 committee would like to thank the entire community for their great contributions to this year's event. Because of your efforts through donations, caring deeds and involvement this experience was once again successful. Our total was close to $20,000. Our totals were down a bit but not our spirits. We will continue to fight against cancer in anyway we can. Relay celebrated its survivors and remembered those who lost their battle.

  • To the charge that the Spencer County Youth Football Association is about winning only is absurd. The SCYFA organization has always been about leadership, teambuilding, and teaching the fundamentals of football.

  • I have been a part of the Spencer County Stallions with my children for over six years and proud of it! 

  • I have sat back and read the charges against David Jenkins in our newspaper for weeks now. What happened to “innocent until proven guilty”? I suppose that doesn’t apply with our editor of the Spencer Magnet. According to the on-line poll a couple of weeks ago, this is embarrassing to our county. I agree with that, so please Ms. Bass let it go.
