  • LETTER: Love of community felt during difficult loss

    My mother was a Taylorsville girl. Although I was reared in southern Indiana, my brother, sister and I spent many precious hours and days in Taylorsville with our grandparents and with my favorite uncle. We not only ran and played in the fresh country air, but we were also exposed to the love, generosity, cheerfulness, and faith in God that my grandparents and uncle so openly displayed and shared.
    Our experiences here were not just the most magical moments of our young lives. They also laid a firm foundation for my faith in God and for my faith in the goodness of mankind.

  • LETTER: What needs fixing and what doesn't

    Since the General Assembly is in session and legislatures are entering and voting on bills, I would like to mention a couple of things that need fixing along with a couple that don’t need fixing.
    We don’t need more bills to regulate women’s personal lives and interfering with the rights they already have.

  • LETTER: ‘Best explanation of the Tea Party’

    The political left in this country has tried to define the Tea Party in a negative light. We’ve been called “jihadists, terrorists, arsonists, radicals and anarchists.” Senator Mitch McConnell has called the Tea Party “traitors” and said that we “need to be punched in the nose.” The very best explanation I’ve heard was on a recent interview of Matt Bevin on WHAS radio. I will paraphrase what Mr. Bevin had to say and add some thoughts of my own.

  • LETTER: Thanks to those who brave the cold to keep others warm
  • LETTER: Cold doesn’t stop one city commissioner

    This is in response to your editorial in the Jan. 8 edition of The Spencer Magnet. During my campaign, I advised the citizens that I knew I would make decisions that they would not agree with, but I would listen to them concerning these.
    Yes, I am one of the members of the general public working every day it was cold. Some days we had limited heating due to one of our units not working properly in our office. It was not a toasty 70 degrees in our office during those three days. It was very cold, but work continued as usual.

  • LETTER: Thanks to Toys for Tots supporters

    Toys for Tots organizers would like to thank Chad Goodlett and First Assembly of God, Bill Dunning and First Christian Church and Becky Wilson, Vonda Martin and the Spencer County Schools Family Resource and Youth Service Centers for their help with the program. Thank you also to all of the drop-off locations and everyone that gave. Your generosity made this season’s program a success.

  • LETTER: Public input sought from levee commissioner

    The levee protecting the Taylorsville downtown (old town) area from the flood waters of Salt River and Brashear’s Creek since 1948 is under a federal mandate to spend between $300,000 and $400,000 to remain accredited. Accreditation prevents Taylorsville from being in a flood zone and eligible for federal assistance in times of disaster.

  • LETTER: Thanks to Dr. Dill and staff

    To Dr. Gerry Dill and his staff, thank for all the help over the years. Your expertise, knowledge, and friendship, contributed greatly to our success here on the farm. It was always a welcome sight to see you coming up the road to help out in veterinary emergencies.I can think of dozens of times if you had not come we would have lost that cow.
    Big thanks to Ann, too, as she taught two of our children and helped mold them into who they are today.
    I believe in karma, so your goodwill you have generated is certain to make your retirement the best it can be.

  • LETTER: Give thanks, give hope, give the gift of life

    As we gather with family during the holiday, many of us wish to give back and help others. Often, we struggle to find the time and means to do so. However, this Christmas, there is something everyone can do that costs nothing, takes less than a minute, and gives hope to thousands of children, adults, and their families, in need.

  • LETTER: Are you on Santa’s Team?

    A dear friend posted an article on Facebook about a mother who explained to her growing, inquisitive child about being on “Santa’s Team.” It was a sweet article that every parent would appreciate. Have you ever thought about the vast reach of Santa’s Team? In fact, I cannot remember when I wasn’t a member of Santa’s Team. It is one of my joys in life.
