To the editor:
As parents of a Special Olympics athlete, we would like to thank everyone involved in the party Saturday for the athletes. It was a great party as usual and the athletes had a wonderful time.
We would like to thank Pizza Hut for donating pizzas, Cytec Fiberite for the cookies, Greenville high school for use of the facilities, National Honor Society and their sponsor for helping to serve, and all the parents and others who volunteered. A special thanks to L3 for all the gifts, and for Santa and Mrs. Claus who came to distribute them. This means so much to our athletes, it makes Christmas extra special. A special thanks to Rick Kohn, this was his 14th party. Rick has a special group of volunteers who help him any time he needs them, we’re not sure of everyone involved, but we know the Joe DeGarso family is always on hand to help.
Again, we hope we haven’t left anyone out but we can’t express how much we appreciate everyone who helped with the party in any way.
Richard and Mary Hogue

Kill the YMCA project
In addressing the city council on July 8th, YMCA board president Andy Bench made a bold and highly questionable claim that raised a red flag in my mind.

Applaud Court’s return to interpretive sanity
I applaud the Supreme Court’s return to Constitutional interpretive sanity in its recent finding in favor of Hobby Lobby and other closely held companies, to decline to pay for certain medications that they believe violate their religious beliefs.

Not too late to stop proposed YMCA center

Perkins should abstain from YMCA vote
What if you were a judge? What if you were also Board President of a non profit organization?
Say no to YMCA on Tuesday
An April 28, 2013 ad in the Herald Banner stated that the YMCA/Event Center bond would only add an additional 2.5 cents to the Greenville property tax rate.
When I moved back to Greenville after living 17 years in South Texas, I took the advice of my friend, Dr. Bill Thorn, who advised me to become an expert in some field. It didn’t matter what.
