Letters

  • 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.

  • LETTER: Support conservatives in upcoming election

    The race for Senate is heating up. Matt Bevin is up in the polls and Senator McConnell is calling conservative patriots traitors and say they need a punch in the nose. The senator has been in DC for 30 years and he has done more than punch us in the nose. He has been right there helping the decline of our nation.
    There was a man that ran on the communist party ticket for president for years and years. Then about 30 years ago, he said he no longer needed to run. The Democrats had accepted the communist platform.
    Moving closer to home.

  • LETTER: Liquor sales on Sunday
  • LETTER: Keep the Lord’s day holy
  • LETTER: Don’t be fooled by McConnell

    Sen. Mitch McConnell, as usual, let his anti-worker attitude show through by supporting a national right-to-work bill. I’m not surprised as he is paid big bucks by companies that don’t want to pay their employees good wages and benefits.

  • LETTER: Today’s problems have an answer

    Where did we go wrong and how can we fix it? Speaking with 66 years of experience, it seems to me that our society and the world is only a shadow of what it once was. Whether watching the news or reading the paper it is becoming more apparent that the goodness of the people, which we once took for granted, is becoming more and more unheard of.

  • LETTER: Spencer is fortunate to have Sheriff Stump

    Once again, Sheriff Buddy Stump has proven his ability to run the office of sheriff in a safe, professional and efficient manner. The recent meth bust has made Spencer Country a safer and more pleasant place to live. The entire county owes him a big “thank you” for weeding out and removing criminals who make our lives more dangerous.

  • COLUMN: It’s almost time for fall cleanup

    The day after Halloween proved to be a decent day, with sun and lighter winds. Halloween night, I thought some of the trick-or-treaters might be blown away. It was a rough time to be outside.
    The wind also stirred up a bunch of the litter that has been added to our roadsides. For the life of me, I cannot understand why everything must be thrown out the window as we drive our roads. It’s so simple: Keep it in the car or truck, and dispose of it in the proper way.

  • LETTER: A heartfelt thank you

    At time when it seems the world has turned upside down and no one cares for other people, a special act of kindness will prove that untrue.
    Several days ago, I came out of the grocery to a heavy downpour. After waiting a few minutes, I decided to make a run for my car. The rain only came down harder, so I pushed my cart up to the side of my car and I jumped inside.

  • LETTER: Words are powerful

    At times, I feel I should respond to letters in The Spencer Magnet, but I become concerned my “words” might be misunderstood or taken out of context.
    I agree with Magistrate [Woodie] Cheek about the power of “words.” There were approximately 232 words in his commentary, excluding some prepositions and conjunctions, and an additional approximate 79 words in the old folk tale he shared with readers in the Oct. 23 publication.
    As an educator, Cheek should know, never use two words when one will do.
