To the editor:
I was born and raised in Greenville and have lived here most of my life, except for the two years my husband, Perry M. Smith, was in dental school and the two years he practiced dentistry in West Texas. Since I just celebrated my 85th birthday, that is a long time to live in one community.
I helped Tyson and Jamie Cox buy their first home in Oak Village when I was a real estate broker. The Coxes and I worked together for several years as members of committees on the Oak Village Swimming Pool Assoc. I have observed them as parents raising three fine young men.
Jamie’s parents, James and Mary Lynn, took care of all my dry cleaning business as far back as I can remember when they picked up and delivered your dry cleaning.
You will find Tyson to be a very friendly, easy to talk to person, who will be interested in hearing what the people in his district want for the city of Greenville.
I strongly recommend you vote for and support Tyson Cox in the election for city councilman representing Place 1.
Doris Riley Smith

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
