Pud Kearns with Housewarmers of Greenville discusses her recent tour of the Splash Kingdom water park on Interstate 30 in Greenville, which is expected to open to the public on Friday (May 28).  Pud says the park will be larger than she expected, and with a wider selection of food items.  Pud also describes a new city of Greenville tourism brochure she and Kevin Banks, general manager of the Greenville Municipal Auditorium, have created.

Herald-Banner and Commerce Journal editor Caleb Slinkard says the fact that the city manager has taken the  civic center construction project out of the 2014-15 budget does not mean the project is dead, but is certainly another setback.  And Caleb reports that the labor lockout at the Greenville Cytec industrial plant continues.
