To the editor:
Huge thanks from the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and Hunt County Master Gardeners to Greenville’s Herald-Banner and local radio stations KGVL, KIKT, and KETR.
Master Gardeners work so hard to offer informative and helpful programs for everyone in the community, and the excellent coverage by these two news media literally fill the seats of our talks and classes. The radio station doubled attendance at our March series of “Learn with the Master Gardener” classes.
We were thrilled to see a record 104 Hunt residents at the recent “Square Foot Gardening” talk, most of whom were there because of the one article that appeared Monday of the same week in the Herald-Banner ... wow! Advertisers mustn’t underestimate the power of our terrific local radio station and newspaper — people are, indeed, reading and listening! A big thanks, too, to our partner, the W. Walworth Harrison Library, for making our Art of Gardening series of lectures such a success.
All three of these local information outlets also feature websites that announce events and other information that so benefits the community. We appreciate you!
Hunt County Master Gardener

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
