Letters

  • LETTER: What happened to the team?

    I’ve often been disappointed thinking about how too many people pay more attention to their sports teams than their government. However, with the latest display of complete dysfunction on Fiscal Court, clearly it is more encouraging and productive to observe “team spirit,” winning attitudes and a desire to succeed displayed by the Spencer County Bears than Spencer County Fiscal Court. Go Bears!

  • LETTER: There’s more than one way to destroy a nation from within

    If a picture is worth a thousand words, video evidence must warrant a book. It’s a book the Obama administration recommended to members of Congress and the American people last week as the president and those in his circle made the plea for military strikes against the Syrian government in the wake of gas attacks they allegedly carried out on citizens of that country.

  • LETTER: Thanks for making Health fair/Readifest a success

    The Family Resource and Youth Service Center would like to thank everyone, who participated in our Annual Health Fair/Readifest.  
    Definitely, our community collaborated to serve our children and families for this school year.  We have sponsored with many other agencies throughout the years to provide free health screenings, health resources and information, fitness demonstrations, and free school supplies.
    This year we had at least 1,200 people attend this event at Spencer County Elementary School.

  • LETTER: Thanks from the TSCFD

    On behalf of the Taylorsville-Spencer County Fire Department, I would like to say thank you for making our 100th Anniversary a huge success.

  • LETTER: Public servants can get a lot accomplished

    What is a public servant? I believe a public servant is one who walks with God.
    I remember when I was out in sin, the things that meant most to me always referred back to what I could do to promote my own agenda. After I accepted Jesus, I had a different outlook on life. This outlook was to serve Jesus first of all, then Jesus would give me direction to serve others.
    A few weeks ago, one of the girls who worked in my office, said, “Junior, why don’t you run for judge again, we would go in there and give the people a 75 percent tax cut.”

  • LETTER: Work together

    When I talk with the people in our community and I ask them how we can work together to improve our community, I often get this answer: It does not matter how you try to improve things, they (the officials) are going to do what they want to do. Our county can be a thriving and loving community if we all work together and focus on the positives of our hometown.

  • LETTER: Share ‘both sides’

    I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for running Ashley Scoby’s opinion piece in last week’s newspaper entitled “Spencer County is great, but deserves better.” It was a well written piece that echoed much truth through the eyes of someone who is a talented writer and has taken a bird’s eye glimpse into our community. And yes, she is right, we deserve better.

  • LETTER: Don’t oppose the business because of the circumstance

    A few weeks ago The Spencer Magnet published an article on the front page about a local businessman that had been arrested and charged with the unlawful subjection of two women to sexual contact without their consent. Whether these charges are trumped up, or legitimate, I do not know; I could speculate, but what difference will it make? The charges and arrest have been made and The Spencer Magnet did its job.

  • LETTER: Are stand-your-ground laws a problem?

    Twenty-six states have stand-your-ground laws on the books (including Kentucky). Eric Holder recently has been critical of these laws because he feels they contribute to situations like the one involving Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman.
    This was a tragedy.

  • LETTER: Shelburne’s charity softball game a success

    The sixth annual WAMZ Softball Game hosted at Ray Jewell Park that benefits St. Jude, was clearly a winner this year collecting a record amount of $6,200. That amount set the Shelburne team at a grand total raised for St. Jude over these six years, at $17,200.
