‘Hooyah’ to ‘Ooh-rah’
Congratulations, William Francey, for your successful road to manhood. Thank you, Amber Pompa, for your worthy article about this young man’s journey. Good job Greenville School District for implementing the Navy Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps in Greenville High School. Thumbs up, parents, for being there for your son and never giving up.
I am associated with the MOAA (Military Officers Association of America), and I have had the privilege of being in the midst of the NJROTC cadets. I have watched these fine young women and men volunteer in our great community with pride. I have watched these cadets in action participating in various military based events. These cadets always conduct themselves with pride and extreme professionalism. Our community can be proud that Greenville has a program to shape the lives of these students. Some which could be classified as “the ones that fell through the cracks.”
A special thanks goes to Lt. Cmdr. James Reed and Master Sgt. Clifford Turner for your hard work and genuine dedication you have demonstrated in shaping the lives of these cadets. You are making a positive difference in each and every one of their lives. Can you imagine, this is happening at Greenville High School in Greenville, Texas! ‘Hooray’!

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.

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.
