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!

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.
Take care of children crossing over border
The beautiful little Hispanic children coming across the border from Mexico and South America…
Not too late to stop proposed YMCA center
n your Wednesday edition, reporter Brad Kellar briefly touched on the comments of Dr. Jerry Ransom at Tuesday’s city council meeting.
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.
