To the editor:
I propose that we stop throwing out all the hard-earned wisdom that comes from past experiences. History is not a stupid subject. What happened in the past was either a wonderful thing or a bad thing. If we weren’t so lazy we would look at past bad things and see that dishonest and bad-intentioned people look at what has worked for them in the past and they try it over and over again. As long as a scam works, they keep right on using it.
We have a whole lot of people in government offices who have figured out how to line their pockets at our expense, and by golly we keep right on electing them to do nothing for us and everything for themselves. I propose we petition for a law that says, in plain words, that an elected, appointed or hired person in a position paid by tax dollars may not in any way profit from that position other than the salary paid for that position — if they do, they go to jail.

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.
