To the editor:
The Disabled American Veterans (DAV) and Auxiliary (DAVA) of Hunt County recently held our first pancake breakfast to benefit our veterans. We would like to thank all those who helped us make this event such a success.
A hearty thank you to the Elks Lodge for the most generous offer of their members, building and kitchen facilities. Secondly, the Cracker Barrel and IHOP both donated pancake batter, and Brookshire’s and Super 1 grocery stores donated gift cards for required purchases. Brookshire’s and Super 1 have always been staunch supporters of our veterans and are always ready to assist however they can.
We would also like to thank the GISD NJROTC who assisted us by directing customers to our breakfast and providing a youthful and energetic approach to the breakfast. They are a wonderful bunch of young men and women under the tutelage of Commander James Reed.
Additionally, the Herald-Banner was very supportive with their wonderful coverage of this event through a feature story about our organization and the event. The Herald-Banner has always been there to assist us as they were able.
Finally, we would like to thank the citizens of Hunt County who showed their appreciation and support of their veterans. All proceeds help our Hunt County veterans and their families.
The DAV and DAVA look forward to all our events which bring us into contact with not only our friends and neighbors but new friends as well.

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.
