To the editor:
This letter is a little late, but we would like to say “Thank you” to some people.
First, thank you to the residents on Park Street for another wonderful 4th of July Parade. It is obvious a lot of planning and work go into this parade; we have watched it several years and always enjoy it.
Also, thank you to the person responsible for the flags on the Audie Murphy overpass. It is an incredible display of patriotism, and we have enjoyed it every time we use that route.
Finally, thank you to all those involved in the Roger Krodle Antique Car Show. We want to thank all those persons and businesses who sponsored the show and also those who worked to make it successful another year. A special thank you to the Krodle family for allowing Hunt County Special Olympics to benefit from the show. This helps to allow our athletes to attend local, area and state events. Thank you to Family Fellowship church for allowing us to use their facilities and being the title sponsor. It was so nice to be able to work and eat in comfort.
And last but not least, thanks to Rick Kohn who works so hard for Hunt County Special Olympics. He organizes this event as well as other events to benefit the athletes; we are so grateful to him for all he does.
Thanks to everyone involved,
Richard and Mary Hogue
Parents of a Special Olympics Athlete

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.
Take care of children crossing over border
The beautiful little Hispanic children coming across the border from Mexico and South America…
Not too late to stop proposed YMCA center
n your Wednesday edition, reporter Brad Kellar briefly touched on the comments of Dr. Jerry Ransom at Tuesday’s city council meeting.
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.
Freedom of religion
