To the editor:
‘Hooyah’ to ‘Ooh-rah’
Congratulations, William Francey, for your successful road to manhood. Thank you, Amber Pompa, for your worthy article about this young man’s journey. Good job Greenville School District for implementing the Navy Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps in Greenville High School. Thumbs up, parents, for being there for your son and never giving up.
I am associated with the MOAA (Military Officers Association of America), and I have had the privilege of being in the midst of the NJROTC cadets. I have watched these fine young women and men volunteer in our great community with pride. I have watched these cadets in action participating in various military based events. These cadets always conduct themselves with pride and extreme professionalism. Our community can be proud that Greenville has a program to shape the lives of these students. Some which could be classified as “the ones that fell through the cracks.”
A special thanks goes to Lt. Cmdr. James Reed and Master Sgt. Clifford Turner for your hard work and genuine dedication you have demonstrated in shaping the lives of these cadets. You are making a positive difference in each and every one of their lives. Can you imagine, this is happening at Greenville High School in Greenville, Texas! ‘Hooray’!

Making a point
I just read Mayor Reid’s letter. I would like to make a point and finish upbeat.
Thanks from Relay For Life
Relay For Life Team Brave would like to recognize Erin Reese Ramsey and John Marten for their generous donations.
Vote for new Y
I write to support the YMCA bond election from a perspective of the role they provide in the health of our community. As a health care professional, I have long understood and supported the need and development of a comprehensive Health and Wellness Center which could serve not only as a fitness center and playground, but as a cornerstone for building and maintaining healthy bodies and lifestyles.
We would like to say we are in full agreement and support Randy Daw’s article in last Friday’s paper concerning the issue of homosexuality.
In support of new Y
A number of Greenville citizens have asked if we can afford a new YMCA. After many years of being a part of the Y, I think the question is, can we afford not to build a new YMCA?
Examine the facts
In response to the editorial published by the Herald-Banner on April 28 stating that the staff believes more time is required before an informed decision can be made on the issuance of public bonds for a new YMCA and Event Center…
Proven for the job
It has come to my attention that Tyson Cox has declined a candidate’s forum with Dan Perkins sponsored by GEUS. The forum was to be broadcast on their network.
Make a difference
I’d like to voice my support for the YMCA and Event Center that is on the ballot as Proposition 2.
Take a step back and imagine what a “better Greenville” looks like to you.
Vote for new Y
My wife, Marilyn, and I want to encourage the citizens of Greenville to vote in support of the YMCA project.
