To the editor:
I was as offended by your January 29 editorial as I was the original article about the horse/sex of January 25. It made no sense for you to say “we think the Herald-Banner ‘underplayed’ this story based on the strong opinions and countless conversations it’s spawned since it was published.”
The real offense, however, was your statement that “this newspaper is not a public relations tool. “We’re not out to paint the Greenville area in a positive light, nor is our goal to use our news pages to attract new industries.”
Well, Mr. Editor, you don’t have to worry about that. If attracting new business to Greenville is dependent upon on the opinions of our local newspaper, Greenville is in serious trouble. If your job is to “reflect Hunt County as it really is, not how we wish it to be,” you’ve done a great disservice to this community.

What is rescue all about?
Rescue is a calling for most people.
Who are we backing?
It is amazing that President Obama, who only five years ago was the staunch anti-war (and anti-Bush) freshman Senator from Illinois, is now whole-heartedly throwing his support behind Syrian rebels to topple the Assad regime.
A big thank you
A huge THANK YOU to the many people who stopped by our booth at Rally Round Greenville.
Top notch crew
On Saturday morning, Sept. 14, I had a TIA. I was sure that was what it was because my right arm felt like lead.
Thank you for your help
It just wouldn’t seem right for me not to submit a very heartfelt message to my friends and former colleagues at the Hunt County Courthouse after last weekend’s Rally ‘Round Greenville.
Medal finally awarded to Murphy
Governor Rick Perry this past week awarded the Texas Legislative Medal of Honor to America’s “most decorated” combat soldier of WWII Audie Murphy.
