The more things change ...
You know, I’ve been doing this job for a while now. I will have been at the Herald-Banner for 20 years next month. That’s long enough to have noticed a few things, about people and about our city.
Arriving five minutes late not so bad
It seems like everyday there is another wreck in downtown Greenville.
Race theme, technical jargon in 'Planes' may appeal more to adults
It’s Disney and it’s animated, and the cutesy talking planes have cartoon eyes and propeller noses. But filmmaker Klay Hall’s “Cars” spin-off heavily emphasizes the “Wings Around the Globe” aerial race and uses a lot of technical aviation jargon and should prove more appealing to dads and grampas than to the usual target audience of youngsters.

Local support needed for homeless shelter
Greenville is in need of a homeless shelter.

If you build it, they will come. There is a fine line between helping and enabling. Homeless people do not need handouts, they need life skills and employment.
Audie Murphy deserves measure
It seems like a no-brainer.
After all, Audie Murphy received dozens of medals both before and after his death in a plane crash in 1971, including the Medal of Honor, Distinguished Service Cross, and a Silver Star.
