GREENVILLE — A Park Street thanks

To the editor:

The Park Street Historical Association appreciates the great coverage conducted by the Herald-Banner of the Christmas events, including the Candlelight Tour of Homes, Lantern Parade, and Horse-drawn Wagon Rides. The Herald-Banner played an intricate part of keeping the community informed of the events and the changes that had to be made because of the inclement weather.

PSHA would also like to thank the sponsors that made the events possible.

We applaud the support of all our generous sponsors, including Park Street Baptist Church and Kavanaugh United Methodist Church.

We would also like to thank the Park Street Homeowners for their hard work with their holiday decorations and making the baked goods for the Wagon Ride concessions.

The Park Street Historical Association is pleased to produce these holiday events every year, and it warms our hearts to see the community’s support that helps bring out the Christmas spirit to the Hunt County area.

We hope to see everyone at the Fourth of July activities coming this summer.

It will once again be a great way to start your day.


Tim Kruse

PSHA President

Keep Judge Steve Tittle

To the editor:

Judge Tittle has been serving Hunt County for more than a decade, as the Hunt County’s first assistant district attorney and our judge in the 196th District Court, since 2011. Judge Tittle has implemented significant improvements, trying thousands of cases with efficiency and professionalism. He has championed cost reduction for our county taxpayers that have made a very real difference.

Judge Tittle has the distinction of being the first Republican district judge, elected in Hunt County. He is also the only board certified district judge in Hunt County in criminal law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.

With all of Judge Tittle’s achievements and judicial performance in mind, it must be pointed out that we have entered the “silly season.” You know that period just prior to elections. It is obvious to the casual observer that politically motivated attacks against Judge Tittle have been introduced into the mix of things. This situation reminds us of a fairly common circumstance in politics today. That is, if you “go along to get along” the powers to be will pay little attention to you. However, if you dare to be courageous and try to improve things (changing the status quo), you immediately become the focus of attacks.

Personally, I have always admired people who will speak truth to power in an effort to do what is right. Judge Tittle is a true conservative with a servant’s heart. I urge you to consider his outstanding performance and his principled stance in service to our county. Please allow Judge Tittle to keep serving Hunt County by giving him your vote in the March 4, 2014 Republican Primary.

Concerned Hunt County resident,

Royce Davis

  • 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.

    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.
