To the editor:
Just wanted to let everyone back in Greenville that might be on Facebook know that there is a little group that I formed a few months ago called “I Was Raised in Greenville, Texas.” We don’t do politics ... local or otherwise. We talk to old friends who are all over the country and the world. We talk local history. We dig up old memories. We range in age from teenagers to seniors.
Out of boredom, one night, when I was off from work, sick, on short-term disability and unable to sleep, I started this little experiment. I had over 200 facebook friends from Greenville, and I started adding them. Some stayed, some left. But as of today, we are at 1386 members.
Some members that still live in the area, like my co-administrator, Sandra Childers Duncan, have been meeting with locals about our history … or taking pictures in some of the most historic buildings in town and posting them for us all to see. We even get the latest information on the renovation of the Texan Theater from owner Barbara Horan.
It is a “closed” group, but all anyone that is on facebook that is interested needs to do is to go to
https://www.facebook.com/groups/raised.in.greenville/ and request to join and Sandra or I will certainly add you.

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.
