continues to rise up
What a year we’ve had so far
in 2020. Since I started to work
for the Herald-Banner in late
2019, it’s been a whirlwind. The
COVID-19 pandemic has put a
damper on my opportunities to
get out in the community and
attend events and meet people.
However, I get to see the many
interesting stories that cross
my desk daily and I’m learning
about Hunt County and Greenville all the same. But I look
forward to meeting more of you in person.
Fortunately, things are starting to open back up and I hope
we’ll get back to normal sooner rather than later. Our staff
continues to provide you the best coverage we can and keep
you apprised of the latest updates on COVID-19 as well as
other events on the horizon.
For me, one of the most enjoyable parts of my job is the
magazine we publish quarterly. This magazine allows us to provide
more human interest stories and gives you an opportunity
to learn about the people in your community and some of the
amazing things they’ve done and are doing.
In this issue, we touch on a variety of topics.
With the pandemic on our minds, we would be remiss if
we didn’t include something about the healthcare workers who
are facing this outbreak head-on. We visited with nurses and
medical professionals with Hunt Regional Medical Center to
shed some light on what they are facing during this difficult
And there’s Gary Felmet, the rock ’n roll basketball coach.
I can’t carry a note to save my life, so I’m always jealous of
those who can. Not only can Felmet sing and play guitar, but
he can also coach basketball. Sports and music, it doesn’t get
better than for me.
We take an in-depth look in the career of Hunt County
Court-at-Law No. 2 Judge F. Duncan Thomas who is setting
down his gavel this year. Thomas has had quite the career in
law and on the bench, influencing many other Hunt County
attorneys along the way.
And if you want to know what all of the buzz is about,
then read “The buzz about bees” story. After visiting with Jacob
and Stepanie Pullen of Zane & James Apiary in Campbell and
John Talbert with Sabine Creek Honey Farm in Josephine,
Texas, you’ll learn a lot about the busy beekeepers in Hunt
And lastly, we take a look into the history of the Greenville
neighborhoods who take it upon themselves to work together
in celebrating the Fourth of July with their own parades.
All in all, the Hunt County community has done a pretty
fantastic job of sticking together during this difficult time in all
of our lives. For that, we applaud you. We hope you enjoy this
issue of Greenville Life magazine.
And don’t forget, you can always reach out to us with potential
story ideas for both the Herald-Banner and Greenville
Life. Send your inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Until next time, stay safe and enjoy the stories.
