To the editor:
I am writing to let you know how we feel about one of your staff writers. This being Brad Kellar. I just want to let you know how much we enjoy reading about Vida, Jaylynn, Jason and the others in his family. Hearing about what is happening at the “Estate.” You see we also have a very large family. Hearing from Mr. Kellar lets us know that we are not the only ones in love with “family.” I was a Girl Scout leader for a group of young ladies. We did all the things with them … camping, selling cookies, fund raising.
And all the other things you have mentioned in your column. But then that was many years ago. Too many!
The little girls are now grown, married with children. I see them doing the same things their mothers did. I am so proud of them. As I read between the lines of your article I see a man who loves his family and is so very proud of each of them. It lets me enjoy feeling close to him and the family that are living the dreams of love and joy. Please keep the stories coming and I just hope that the joy of being the head of a family such as you have will be the strength of your life.
And again let me say, Thank you, Mr. Kellar, for sharing with the rest of our city the joys you receive being the husband, father and spokesman for those living at “the Estate.” May your life be an example for some of us that can relate to all the seasonal activities that make raising children an exciting and happy way to keep us old folks on our toes.
As one of my daughters (now mother of five) told me the other day, “Thank you, Mother, for the lessons we were taught and giving us a good foundation.” What more can we ask for; right, Vida? Thank you for sharing.

I am writing this letter of appreciation because two weeks ago I had my second knee replacement surgery within six months.
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.

Perkins should abstain from YMCA vote
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.
