To the editor:
I recently read about the plans for Crossroads Mall and they sound great. However, if one more step in the transformation isn’t taken, it could all be for naught. As I recall, one of the main complaints over the years that kept the mall from being the success it was anticipated to be was the lack of a traffic light entrance to the mall. (The Kari Lane traffic signals don’t count since that is still a congested area with restricted turning lanes.)
There needs to be a controlled light with turn lanes at the entrance to the mall to make the latest plans successful. When the mall opened, it seemed like it took forever to get in and out on Wesley Street and there were such overheard comments as “It was almost as quick to go on to the interstate and go to Dallas to shop.” Now Dallas is Rockwall and even more tempting.
Come on, TXDoT, step up to the plate and help us out like you’ve done at Wesley and Joe Ramsey.

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.
Cox good choice
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.
We don’t often write letters to the editor and even more rarely endorse political candidates. But we could not pass up the opportunity to offer our wholehearted endorsement for Tyson Cox.
