Curly works hard

CELESTE — To the editor:

This is my first time to write a letter to the editor; but after reading the letter (July 3, 2013) from Bill DuBois concerning the Audie Murphy Historical Marker in Celeste, I had to set the record straight.

One person, Charles “Curly” Combs, takes care of the memorial. Curly does now and always has taken great care of the memorial. He is one person and fixes things as he can. He is also a veteran. I see Curly always there working on it, some things take a little longer to fix. I think Mr. DuBois is right to suggest the people of Hunt County help with the memorial, and he ought to be the first to step up since he is so quick to criticize.

I am sure Mr. DuBois is a very nice man, but it is hard not to get angry about his criticism when I know how hard Curly works to make this memorial great, and it is great!
