To the editor:
Mr. Lowry’s letter in Sunday’s Herald-Banner was filled with Republican/Conservative mythology. His opinions relating to Planned Parenthood and gas prices are simply wrong. His outrage is misplaced and uninformed.
Only 3 percent of Planned Parenthoods services are abortion-related. Federal tax dollars are used for the other 97 percent of services Planned Parenthood provides to working women in our country. It provides critically needed services for women without health care in the United States.
There are two factors that are driving up the price of crude oil. The first is oil speculators. The second is Iran and the instability caused by ill-advised and uninformed Republican rhetoric.
In fact, oil consumption in the United States is down and production is at an eight-year high. In fact, we imported less than 50 percent of our oil needs last year. This is a 30-year low in oil importation.
We are entitled to our opinions, but we should at least use the facts in discussing any issue.

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.

Enjoying Greenville lights
After a wonderful Christmas Eve Church service at Wesley United Methodist Church, my wife and I took a drive to look at Christmas lights.
Thank you for party
As parents of a Special Olympics athlete, we would like to thank everyone involved in the party Saturday for the athletes. It was a great party as usual and the athletes had a wonderful time.
