To the editor:
After a wonderful Christmas Eve Church service at Wesley United Methodist Church, my wife and I took a drive to look at Christmas lights.
I had been advised of some lights on the northwest side of town. Oh there they were, and many more than I had expected.
The main area we viewed lights were north of Polk Street and between Sayle and Walnut streets. The best of all of them was on Up The Grove just north of Polk. Even driving north on Walnut from Lee St. there are several homes with wonderful lighting and other decorations.
I do admit that Park Street does have a lot of beautiful lighting and décor. I appreciate what they do. But there are also many other areas also. Windy Hill just off Stonewall had some nice ones also.
We did not have a chance to get around all of them, but in years past the neighborhoods south on US 69 have had really nice lighting and décor. And then there was downtown Greenville. I really liked the trees at the Hunt County Courthouse.
I do hope there were others that got to enjoy all the splendor in Greenvilleduring this wonderful Christmas. But just remember the reason for the season.

I am writing this letter of appreciation because two weeks ago I had my second knee replacement surgery within six months.
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. He referenced the alleged financial commitment made by The Greenville Independent School District to help pay for his proposed $15 million taxpayer funded YMCA.
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.
