MILLSAP MESSENGER: Millsap's athletics teams stay busy during holiday break

By Sharron Hudson


MILLSAP – Despite the cold weather, things in our area are as busy as usual.

Although students and teachers are on vacation,  the high school students who play basketball, and their coaches, are busy with games. Both the varsity boys and girls had tournaments this past week. The boys competed against Godley, with the girls playing in Lubbock.

The second semester of school begins as the teachers return for a workday on Monday. All students report back on Tuesday. 

We have a new place to eat in Millsap. The Mexican Taco is located on Pine Street, directly in front of the Baptist church. This trailer café is open Monday through Friday, 6:30 a.m -2:30 p.m., with a nice variety of items to choose from. The owner welcomes the opportunity to cater special events. You can finish up your meal with one of the varieties of Blue Bell ice cream that Tommy’s has in a display case, and will hand scoop for you. It’s all right here in town – easy and convenient!

Every year at the December meeting of the Millsap Fire Department officers for the coming year are elected/appointed. The officers for 2010 are Chief Neal Doss, Assistant Chief Training Jeff Edwards, Assistant Chief Safety Franco Ortiz, Captain/Treasurer Scott Anderson, Lieutenant/Secretary Mark Anderson, Lieutenant James McKenzie  and Lieutenant Roger Sandavol. Special thanks to each of these men for being willing to fill these vital positions and may they, and the rest of the department, have a safe 2010.

The Cool City Council will meet at the Cool Community Center on Jan. 11 at 6 p.m. A representative from Kay Granger’s office has been rescheduled from December to present a program on the health bill. The public is invited to what is sure to be an important, and informative, presentation.
