A judge of good character
To the editor:
As a retired educator I have always considered myself to be a good judge of character; in my judgment, I would consider Steve Tittle to be a judge of good character. I have enjoyed the pleasure of knowing Steve Tittle for the past four years as both a friend and neighbor. During that time and before, I have followed his career as a prosecutor and district judge. It is my opinion that Judge Tittle has performed admirably in his service to Hunt County, exemplifying dignity, honesty, and integrity along the way. I have no doubt that he can be trusted to continue doing so in the future.
More importantly, I will forever cherish the memories that solidify my assessment of Judge Tittle’s character on a more personal level. My sister spent her final years living in a house across the street from that of Judge Tittle. As a frail octogenarian in poor health, my sister was fortunate to have Steve Tittle for a neighbor. He exhibited kindness, compassion, and concern for my sister, and was always ready to help her with any need. His empathy, along with his vigilance in checking on her safety and well-being, provided comfort for our family.
I cannot begin to express my gratitude in words, but I will note that those qualities demonstrated by Steve Tittle, the friend and neighbor, parallel the character traits possessed by Judge Tittle. One has to look no further than the positive nature of his campaign, to find an example indicative of his conduct and professionalism.
I, for one, am confident that such attributes will serve the citizens of Hunt County well, and I ask you to join me in casting your vote to keep Judge Steve Tittle as district judge of the 196th Judicial District Court.

Kill the YMCA project
In addressing the city council on July 8th, YMCA board president Andy Bench made a bold and highly questionable claim that raised a red flag in my mind. He referenced the alleged financial commitment made by The Greenville Independent School District to help pay for his proposed $15 million taxpayer funded YMCA.
Applaud Court’s return to interpretive sanity
I applaud the Supreme Court’s return to Constitutional interpretive sanity in its recent finding in favor of Hobby Lobby and other closely held companies, to decline to pay for certain medications that they believe violate their religious beliefs.

What if you were a judge? What if you were also Board President of a non profit organization?
Say no to YMCA on Tuesday
An April 28, 2013 ad in the Herald Banner stated that the YMCA/Event Center bond would only add an additional 2.5 cents to the Greenville property tax rate.
When I moved back to Greenville after living 17 years in South Texas, I took the advice of my friend, Dr. Bill Thorn, who advised me to become an expert in some field. It didn’t matter what.
