To the editor:
Recently, going through boxes before putting my things in storage due to my forced move by the City, I ran across some old receipts from days gone by. I was amazed at having these as we forget people and things as time goes by.
For some of our senior citizens, I’m sure they will remember the business places that were once Greenville to us. Guess that’s why all the new things downtown aren’t like the Greenville we once knew. Remember Berry-Bush, Ins., Crawford-Smith Tire Co., Lone Star Gas, Wolff’s/Skibell’s (ladies’ dress shops), Dr. Fred Turbeville, Lamar Creamery Co., Manor Bakers, downtown Beall’s, McGaughey-Cresswell-Mann Drug Store. Last but no means least, a receipt for the Greenville Herald-Banner dated Feb. 1, 1964, carrier — Gregg Wallace.
Memories are just about all some seniors have left. When the City tears down my home, it, too, will only be a memory. I’ve yet to understand the urgency and necessity when most of the condemned buildings are still standing. In all fairness, I should have the same amount of time. If anything needs tearing down, start with the ones that have been condemned the longest.
After being home for 55 years, guess I’m just …

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.
