Letters

  • LETTER: Help for families of youth with mental disorders

    The week of May 6-12 is National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week. In honor of this week, I would like to share with you an important resource that is available to families that have children with emotional and behavioral disorders and mental health disabilities.

  • LETTER: Thomas stands for conservative values

    I’m writing this in support of Thomas Massie for United States Congress. While talking to Thomas, I saw he was for the things I was for. He is a true conservative, which means he is against abortion, ObamaCare, gun control and everything that is not right in the eyes of God.

  • LETTER: Driver says thank you for help in crash

    Editor’s note: Aimee M. (Rohr) Jewell is the driver of the car that collided with a school bus two weeks ago.

    To those who assisted: I’m indebted to you and wanted to tell each and every one of you that were there, from those who helped my daughter to those who helped me to the EMS staff that responded to the call, thank you.

  • LETTER: Reader says Hesselbrock has earned her vote

    After reading last week’s letter to the editor, I opened the 2010 State Auditor’s report concerning the Spencer County Clerk’s Office. Two things came to mind after reading the report.
    First, why hasn’t the mishandled money been paid back to the county as the State Auditor requested? It seems to me that enough time has passed and the funds due to the county should be paid in full by now.

  • LETTER: Hesselbrock brought needed changes to clerk’s office

    What a positive difference just a few months of competent leadership and management can make. Prior to Dec. 1, 2011, the Spencer County Clerk’s Office was suffering from years of mismanagement.
    I recently reviewed the Kentucky state auditor’s report of the Spencer County Clerk’s Office that was released in September 2011.  It is a scathing indictment of how poorly the office was managed. I would like to cite just a few of the most glaring notations from the audit which begin on page 17 of the report:

  • LETTER: ‘Something has to give for progress to be made’

    It’s been a while since I’ve tossed my two cents into the letters section of the newspaper. Truth be known, most of the activities I’ve seen in the past few years have not garnered my interest enough to bother writing. But I must say, that [Judge-Executive Bill Karrer’s] comments regarding economic development have sparked some interest. I was present at the Chamber meeting when Karrer made his comments. If you took one thing away from that meeting, it had to be that Karrer is passionate about our future.

  • LETTER: Shop local, for the love of Taylorsville

    While reading through the letters “From Our Readers” in the March 28 Spencer Magnet, I read a couple of things that really struck a nerve in me and am compelled to share with the community my thoughts.  

  • LETTER: Spencer County, Taylorsville and development

    Having watched and been involved in the course the county, Taylorsville and the EDA have taken since we moved here in 2005 and read about it from 2001, when I started reading The Spencer Magnet, I think I have a good grasp of things.

  • LETTER: Buildings, business ventures should be more open

    While Fiscal Court can’t seem to produce a long term EMS building solution and new citations have been issued for serious health violations to include a fine for EMS, county officials imposed a lock down for the temporary housing for EMS. No unauthorized personnel allowed.
    A chain was installed across the outside stairwell, provoking a violation notice from the Spencer County Fire Chief, for endangering the escape of EMS personnel in the event of fire.
    It appears their goal is to prevent me from causing them any further embarrassment.

  • LETTER: The cost of addiction is too great

    I have seen the face of addiction more than most, having a late family member, seeing the toil taken on families in this community as a paramedic, and suffering the insult of larceny — if we don’t react soon it may be too late.
