Re Slamming the editor
Our Herald-Banner is a good small town paper. The employees are always courteous and professional. I have never met the editor. All of us like to voice our opinion when we are displeased with actions of other individuals. The horse and perverted individual story has drawn some pretty stormy critricism from readers.
In my opinion the story reported probably should have been a little different text in composition, but tthe condemnation of the staff and editor is pretty far out. We all subscribe to a newspaper for news. Criminal acts are news items of importance to us all. Arrest of felons and perverts and their convictions are important news items.
One of the writers thinks this community would feel right at home on the Jerry Springer Show. I take that statement as an insult to all of our community, and this includes our editor and staff of our newspaper.
My opinion regarding the hypothetical company Mr. Weis is planning to locate in Greenville, but after the horse article in the Herald-Banner, he relocates to Rockwall.; hypothetically I can recommend a much warmer place for his company to relocate, and if it is a law firm, he can take some of our attorneys with him.
Stay the course, Herald-Banner and Editor Price. Informative news items are not always pleasing news.
This “horse story” has been ridden to the ground. Lets move on!!!

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

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
