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.

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.
