BYH to Rebekah Thurston with Greenville Fire and Rescue for all of the hard work that she put into the Junior Fire Academy Camp this week. The kids have had a blast and the camp serves as a testimony to Rebekah’s commitment to GFR and our community as a whole. Great job!

Pirate Nation is well known for it's support of Pirate football! Fans should support these players who work so hard to win and please the fans. Great fan support is good for future recruiting.

Bless your heart to the Greenville City Council for not remembering the saying "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." regarding stormwater. Instead of easing regulations and making it more "flexible" for developers, we should be ensuring we try to control as much stormwater as possible. We are having more severe flooding now due to the significant increase in impervious surfaces due to development.

Bless the hearts of our new neighbors. Why do some folks think that their front lawn doubles as a parking lot? Consider the code patrol to be your welcome wagon.

BYH GOP, insisting on measures that suppress the vote (voter IDs) without any evidence to justify a need. Yet foreign meddling in our elections has lots of evidence, and they do nothing. What, is that fake news, too? What am I missing?

BYH to the person in Monday's paper who thinks teachers make too much money. My daughter just graduated in nursing. Her starting salary with no experience pays $10,000 more than I make with 27 years of experience as a teacher. It is also more than I will ever make because the top salary available as a teacher is lower than what she will make right out of college.

Tips are a way to express appreciation for exceptional service and should not be expected but instead earned. I am sorry that society does not value restaurant workers enough to pay them a decent wage. Tipping automatically supplements low wages and in the long run hurts servers’ wage increases. So stop tipping — you'll be helping the servers earn more money.

No BYH to "$9,000 increase of new home." Gee, let's see. The average median price of a new home is $279,900. Add the $9,000 and you will pay a whopping $26.50 a month more .Yup! That will crash the housing market.

BYH, Trump has told the biggest lie, almost to the point of insanity, in a British interview recently concerning the U.S. economy, that the GDP has “doubled and tripled” since his taking office. There is nothing he won't say, except noting Russian interference in our election which swung it his way.

Happy 44th anniversary, dear! My wish for the world is that everyone could find someone as special as you are to me. The world would be a better place. Bless your loving heart!

BYH, when you start with a clown, you end up with a circus.
