To the editor:
It just wouldn’t seem right for me not to submit a very heartfelt message to my friends and former colleagues at the Hunt County Courthouse after last weekend’s Rally ‘Round Greenville. I had been eager to light up the courthouse for a specialty event for some time.
I started by asking John Horn months ago for his approval for the project. After granting me approval, I had to come up with a plan. Everything just seemed to fall in place.
I would not have been able to accomplish this without the dedication of John Horn; his assistant, Amanda Blankenship; Jeremy Case and the Hunt County Sheriff’s Office Security Detail, Judge Beacom’s 354 District Court and especially Donna Meeks, Judge Tittle’s 196 District Court; and Cindy Ware.
Most importantly, I would like to express my appreciation for the skills of my former boss and Maintenance Director Jimmy Moore, Scott, Phillip, Sandy, and staff for helping me with the electric detail and lawn sprucing prior to and following the event.
Your efforts are truly appreciated. Also, a shout out to the Hunt County Auditor’s office for winning county office with the most attendance during the Jack Ingram concert!
Lastly, I would like to salute Tim Kruse of “lining the Audie Murphy Overpass with flags fame” for assisting me with technical support, artist and musician David Zvanut of Commerce for donating the lighting equipment, and Milton Babb with the Greenville Convention and Visitors Bureau, the Greenville Chamber of Commerce and staff, and all of its members and sponsors. You are all awesome and appreciated.
I love assisting Greenville and Hunt County in making our events more technologically advanced and monetarily successful.

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.

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.
