To the editor:
My wife, Marilyn, and I want to encourage the citizens of Greenville to vote in support of the YMCA project.
This visionary project will let visitors and prospective new residents and businesses know we care about our community, and especially care about our children.
As a member of the Texas Senate for the last 10 years, and now as chairman of the Senate Committee on Economic Development, I have had the opportunity to see similar projects develop throughout the state. Many have been funded with taxes. The economic and quality of life benefits of these endeavors far exceed their cost, whether they be funded with private or public monies.
Having studied economic development and the financing of similar projects for some time, I do not think a community the size of Greenville can raise all the money that is needed privately. We must support what is called a public-private partnership for a new YMCA.
This vote is for the future of our community. The YMCA complex plan is well conceived and in line with what is happening throughout the state and nation.
Marilyn and I are very proud of Greenville. We hope to be even more so on May 11.
Bob Deuell, M.D.
Member, Texas Senate

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
