  • LETTER: No need for ‘details’ in last week’s paper

    It is with much anticipation that I look forward to reading The Spencer Magnet every week when it is delivered to our home. Unfortunately, this week’s edition was a cause for much concern on my part.
    The headline of the paper was naturally an eye-catcher, but reading the entire article about the actions of a sex offender who resides in Spencer County was enough to turn one’s stomach.

  • LETTER: Thanks for help with charity softball game

    The fifth Annual 97.5 WAMZ St. Jude Charity Softball Game at Ray Jewell Park in Taylorsville was Saturday, Aug. 11. After a great effort by the Shelburne team, the WAMZ Country Hamz came out with the win 33-29.
    The team raised a season high total of $4,295 this year, which makes our five-year total over $10,000 to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
    Special thanks to so many who contributed in different ways to help make the St. Jude Charity Softball Game a huge success.

  • LETTER: Fiscal Court works together for the community

    In my lifetime, I have served on many local, state, national and even international boards. With that experience, I would like to share a little insight that should bring a falsehood to an abrupt halt.
    There are those who think our current Fiscal Court members do not like each other or that we do not get along. During all my years of experience, I have never worked with a group of individuals who are more compassionate about doing the right thing for their constituents than our current Fiscal Court members.

  • LETTER: Reader calls out Karrer, newspaper

    The editorial published July 11, with no author listed, seems to be lacking in complete fair and impartial journalism. The quote “While we applaud the judge for trying to keep the court on task and to stop those who wish to publicly berate and belittle our public officials...”  Are you joking with the readers?
    Bill Karrer has called the Taylorsville mayor’s actions stupid and referred to specific taxpayers and officials as cowards, terrorists, bullies, etc., and The Spencer Magnet gives Karrer a free pass.

  • LETTER: Resist politically correct intimidation

    Intimidation can be a powerful weapon. Tyrants and terrorists have long-employed intimidation in their arsenal to not only keep subjects and opponents in line, but to silence even the smallest hint of resistance.

  • LETTER: Health care law won’t bring about ‘end of days’

    While flipping through my town paper and enjoying the stories about the county fair and advice on students returning to school, I then came across a little piece about the apocalypse.  
    Nope, not those loony people who believe in the Mayan Calender or Y2K survivalist, but some man who goes with the old fire and brimstone approach that (somehow?!?) the Supreme Court ruling on the health care law will bring about the end of days.  

  • LETTER: A message to elected officials

    Those of you who are elected officials of Taylorsville have been chosen to represent us, the citizens of Taylorsville. We are counting on you to be a voice for us concerning all issues that may affect us.

  • LETTER: McConnell column was ‘party rhetoric’

    Form letters not allowed? Mitch McConnell’s reaction to Obamacare is a form letter.
    It is the Republican Party rhetoric or speaking points. Mitch McConnell’s statement “common-sense,” step-by-step reforms, is the RNC’s speaking points. The only problem they can’t figure out is which foot to take the first step with. In other words, they have no plan.
    As far as tax hikes, the taxes under the Obama Administration are the lowest in 30 years.

  • LETTER: Thanks for ‘giving hope’
