To the editor:
I am writing this letter to ask for help from our community. The W. Walworth Harrison Public Library staff is in the process of digitizing the genealogy and local history document collection.
This is a vital project, as it will protect and preserve our rich history for future generations. As part of this undertaking, we are searching for information on the Booker T. Washington High School football team that won the state championship in 1941. Our documentation suggests that the team had a final record of 10 wins and two losses and defeated Athens in the championship game. Interestingly, records indicate the championship game may have been played on Dec. 25, 1941.
Unfortunately, due to incomplete newspaper records for that time we have not been able to find a source that documents the actual score for the championship game. If anyone has old newspaper clippings for the championship game, perhaps an old football program, or even pictures, we would love to see them and possibly digitize them for inclusion in the collection. Additionally, any personal recollections or information would be greatly appreciated! All items will be returned upon being digitized.
For more information please contact Paul Phelan or Sylvia Rodriguez at 903-457-2992 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Follow us on Facebook for all upcoming programs and new services!

Letter from Judge Steve Tittle
Editor's note: Because we ran letters to the editor regarding the upcoming March 4 elections longer than usual, the Herald-Banner extended an opportunity to both Judge Steve Tittle and Judge Andrew Bench to write a final rebuttal letter. Bench's letter can be found in today's print edition. Tittle's letter is below:
To the editor: Today is election day, and I encourage all Hunt County voters to vote. Make no mistake, there is an important option you have today regarding who will continue serving as your District Judge for the 196th Judicial District Court.
