GREENVILLE — Good place to start

To the editor:

I was very glad to see the story in the Herald-Banner about Keep Greenville Beautiful having a trash pick-up day. According to the story, they will meet in back of TaMolly’s, which is a good place to start, for the field in back of the restaurant is always covered with plastic bags from the big box stores.

Hoping for no-kill shelter

To the editor:

I just read the article on the Commerce group and no-kill shelter; hope all goes well there.

I know she has been trying very hard to save the animals, and those of us that love those creatures believe that they need all the chances we can give them. It is not their fault that we humans are too stupid to get them fixed so they can’t reproduce as their body tells them to do. Hell, we can’t stop humans from reproducing when there is no way some of them should be doing it.

Anyway, my wife and I have rescued many of them of all types. There are hundreds if not thousands of cats and dogs not being put to sleep forever because they were all taken to Cause for Paws and fixed, and that includes feral cats that then are released back where they were caught but will not be having more kittens. You know the old so on and so on (one cat makes four; those four make 20; those 20 make 100; and so on and so on). Is that their fault? No, it’s humans’ fault.

Now I do believe that with all the money spent on Greenville SPCA that I would hope they would try being a no-kill shelter. We adopted a young pup from there that was on his last day (well that little lab has become one of the best dogs we have ever had). What a shame if he had been put to sleep.

I can’t wait until they open the new shelter because I will be there. I really want to see how much was done for the animals vs the humans there.

I will be letting everyone know after it opens. Just saying it is their temp home and we just work there.

  • 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.
