To the editor:
The guest opinion page writer Mitch Vaughn in the July 28 newspaper — he took the reader on a “wild wagon ride.”
It was like telling a man how to ride a mule when he had never seen a mule.
One paragraph he was “right on target,” then the next paragraph, “don’t know, maybe.”
How many homeless shelters has he visited? Has he given a coat or blanket to a homeless man?
When I was a small child my grandfather had his homeless shelter, working homeless men in the cotton fields. His motto, “no work, no hot meals.”
In a homeless shelter, a “hand up or a handout”? Give a man a meal, a bed to sleep, then train him to get a job.
The jobs today are “skilled workers.” There must be a program, paid by government grants, in training the homeless in getting a job.
The city should make plans to relocate large companies to Hunt County. Give citizens a job, then make a count of homeless people.
The planning of the local homeless shelter in long-term, not a plan to get a hot meal, a place to sleep for the night.
The homeless will be screened to get those in need. A hand up to help them to get back on the road again with a smile and happiness.
I hope Mr. Vaughn will be at the public meeting Aug. 13 to hear discussing the homeless shelter before the city council. The Christians are saying “get the homeless shelter on go.” The need is great.

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
Governor Rick Perry this past week awarded the Texas Legislative Medal of Honor to America’s “most decorated” combat soldier of WWII Audie Murphy.
