To the editor:
What is wrong with this mayor and certain members of the city council? They can’t cough over $75,000 to fix the emergency warning sirens, but are asking to raise my property taxes to fund a $15,000,000 YMCA? What is wrong with you people? Do you need it spelled out to you?
The YMCA is a luxury; the emergency warning sirens are a necessity. If it is double the cost to fix the emergency warning sirens, then do it. This is the proper usage of property taxes, not subsidizing a private business.
This is not hard, folks; it is city government 101. I love kids and senior adults as much as the next person, and having emergency warning sirens will do more to preserve our kids’ and our memaws’ lives. Good grief!

Bench's letter can be found in today's print edition. Tittle's letter is below:
To the editor: Today is election day, and I encourage all Hunt County voters to vote. Make no mistake, there is an important option you have today regarding who will continue serving as your District Judge for the 196th Judicial District Court.
