To the editor:
Just wanted to let everyone back in Greenville that might be on Facebook know that there is a little group that I formed a few months ago called “I Was Raised in Greenville, Texas.” We don’t do politics ... local or otherwise. We talk to old friends who are all over the country and the world. We talk local history. We dig up old memories. We range in age from teenagers to seniors.
Out of boredom, one night, when I was off from work, sick, on short-term disability and unable to sleep, I started this little experiment. I had over 200 facebook friends from Greenville, and I started adding them. Some stayed, some left. But as of today, we are at 1386 members.
Some members that still live in the area, like my co-administrator, Sandra Childers Duncan, have been meeting with locals about our history … or taking pictures in some of the most historic buildings in town and posting them for us all to see. We even get the latest information on the renovation of the Texan Theater from owner Barbara Horan.
It is a “closed” group, but all anyone that is on facebook that is interested needs to do is to go to
https://www.facebook.com/groups/raised.in.greenville/ and request to join and Sandra or I will certainly add you.

What is rescue all about?
Rescue is a calling for most people.
Who are we backing?
It is amazing that President Obama, who only five years ago was the staunch anti-war (and anti-Bush) freshman Senator from Illinois, is now whole-heartedly throwing his support behind Syrian rebels to topple the Assad regime.
A big thank you
A huge THANK YOU to the many people who stopped by our booth at Rally Round Greenville.
Top notch crew
On Saturday morning, Sept. 14, I had a TIA. I was sure that was what it was because my right arm felt like lead.
Thank you for your help
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.
Medal finally awarded to Murphy
Governor Rick Perry this past week awarded the Texas Legislative Medal of Honor to America’s “most decorated” combat soldier of WWII Audie Murphy.
