Letters

  • LETTER: The right person is county clerk

    It’s nice we have a county clerk that will be responsible and honest on the job. It’s fitting that Lynn Hesselbrock be chosen to finish out the position of county clerk, after all, she did run for the position and was a close second. With all the issues in the office why would Judge-Executive Bill Karrer want to appoint someone in the office as a replacement and possibly have the same old, same old problems?

  • LETTER: Home Tour filled with Christmas spirit

    Since moving to Taylorsville 12 years ago, I have attended many wonderful Christmas Home Tours. But, perhaps because of my age or the uncertain times in which we live, this year the tour was especially poignant. Thank you to the hosts and hostesses who shared their homes, church and office with everyone in the community.

  • LETTER: Reader takes issue with county clerk appointment

    To the victor, go the spoils, a high ranking republican told me, concerning the recent appointment of Lynn Hesselbrock to the county clerk’s position. Qualifications? My understanding is Hesselbrock’s experience is based in nursing. Granted she did run for the seat and barely lost, but with a presidential election coming up and taking an office over, that has exhausted its budget.
    I must ask the question, what was Bill Karrer thinking? Another back room secret deal? On the job training?

  • LETTER: Donate to fundraiser for Kenyan orphanage

    My name is Nolan Thompson, and I am helping to host a variety show for the benefit of an orphanage in Kenya, Africa. I am writing to tell you a little bit about it.
    When I was in third grade, I watched my mom collect toys, blankets and toothbrushes for homeless people. That really sparked my interest in helping people.
    In May, I did a food drive for Alabama after a tornado hit. I did it because my dad was taking stuff down there and I thought it would be nice to have more people involved in the project.

  • LETTER: Thanks for help with Guard Duty event

    With grateful hearts, Guard Duty thanks the men and women who have served and are serving in our armed forces for the sake of freedom, justice and honor.
    Saturday, Guard Duty presented its annual Veterans Honor Service honoring our veterans with a glorious morning of pomp and circumstance, respect and integrity. Many veterans ranging from WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm, Iraq and Afghanistan attended and shared their amazing stories and experiences with the public. What heroes walk among us!

  • LETTER: Thanks for making bean supper a success

    The Spencer County Democratic Group hosted its Annual Democratic Bean Supper at the VFW in Taylorsville on Friday.  So many people helped to make this event a huge success, and I thank each and every one of you. 
    Food for the event was catered by Abbi Nation, Ruth Stamper, Judy McClain, Kim Stump, Karen Curtsiger, Diane Sheeley, Jill and Darrell Herndon, Hilda Snider, Doug Williams, Bonnie Downs, Berttye Sue Brown, Hope Selby, Jane Schultz, Randy Wise, Danny Norton, and Bonnie Ochs.

  • LETTER: Old South homeowners oppose ‘greed,’ not ‘those who need a hand up’

    As a homeowner in Old South Plantation and a newcomer to Taylorsville, I’d like to respond to Tracy DeVore’s letter to the editor in the Oct. 12 edition, defending her home in Taylorsville Place.
    First, may I say how very sorry I am that she did not attend the meeting she referenced in her letter. Excerpts from a news article many times are not enough information to make wise judgments.

  • LETTER: Thanks to local law enforcement

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank our local law enforcement for the service and commitment they continue to invest into our community. While their time and resources may be limited, they work night and day to serve and protect the citizens within Spencer County.

  • LETTER: Get to know Taylorsville Place before making ‘ignorant’ comments

    I am writing this in response to The Spencer Magnet article from Oct. 5, back page, “Citizens heard at public hearing.” I am a resident of Taylorsville Place, and have lived there since August. As everyone else that lives in Taylorsville Place Apartments, I went through a very lengthy and detailed screening process in order to qualify to become a resident. It was all worth it in the end because now I get to enjoy living in a very well-managed, beautiful community.

  • LETTER: Keep rallying to support Backpack Buddies

    I have to say how wonderful this community is and how you guys really come through when someone is in need. We hosted a food drive on Saturday to help support the “Backpack Buddy Program” at our local schools. This program feeds our local children, in need, over the weekend, and for every weekend until school is out.
    The success of this food drive was due to the awesome support of our community, volunteers and local businesses. I would like to say thank you so much for recognizing this need and wanting to fill it.
