To the editor:
I am writing to let you know how we feel about one of your staff writers. This being Brad Kellar. I just want to let you know how much we enjoy reading about Vida, Jaylynn, Jason and the others in his family. Hearing about what is happening at the “Estate.” You see we also have a very large family. Hearing from Mr. Kellar lets us know that we are not the only ones in love with “family.” I was a Girl Scout leader for a group of young ladies. We did all the things with them … camping, selling cookies, fund raising.
And all the other things you have mentioned in your column. But then that was many years ago. Too many!
The little girls are now grown, married with children. I see them doing the same things their mothers did. I am so proud of them. As I read between the lines of your article I see a man who loves his family and is so very proud of each of them. It lets me enjoy feeling close to him and the family that are living the dreams of love and joy. Please keep the stories coming and I just hope that the joy of being the head of a family such as you have will be the strength of your life.
And again let me say, Thank you, Mr. Kellar, for sharing with the rest of our city the joys you receive being the husband, father and spokesman for those living at “the Estate.” May your life be an example for some of us that can relate to all the seasonal activities that make raising children an exciting and happy way to keep us old folks on our toes.
As one of my daughters (now mother of five) told me the other day, “Thank you, Mother, for the lessons we were taught and giving us a good foundation.” What more can we ask for; right, Vida? Thank you for sharing.

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.
