Millsap Matters: With Spring comes opportunities to get involved


There is a sadness in the community on the passing of (Judith) Elaine Littlefield. This lifetime member of the community was a great asset to many area projects and a great supporter of everything that was Millsap. A lady of great faith, she had a kind gentle soul and a quite cheerfulness that always made you glad to see her. Condolences to husband, Royce; sons, Chris and Brad; and daughter Beth; their families and her very large extended family.  Elaine will be missed greatly by many.

There will be a new church soon welcoming folks in over at the Littlepage Pavilion, which is close to the Brock/Dennis exit. The Cutting Capital Fellowship is under the stewardship of Glenn and Barbara Littlepage and they are inviting everyone to the dedication of the beautiful new building on April 21 at 1 p.m. They invite you to bring a picnic lunch and enjoy the beautiful outdoors surrounding the church, while hearing a good Bible message and enjoying some great music. The regular Sunday services will be at 1 p.m., and the address is 7530 W. I-20 Exit 397, Weatherford. These are very dedicated, friendly people, so for any questions feel free to call them at (817) 829-5930.

With more on Millsap Log Cabin Day, which will be May 11, everyone is welcome to start off with the free breakfast around the campfire at 7 a.m. A new activity that has been added is a trail ride which will begin at Walden Farm and Ranch Supply on Fairview Road at 8 a.m. 

Besides lots of great vendor booths there will be a kiddie tractor pull, candle making, flint fire starting, tomahawk tactics, horse shoeing and Confederate re-enactors. To rent booth space or for more info call (940) 682-4667. This is going to be great, so plan on coming out and enjoying all of it!

    Dissection of notes found in the pocket of an old suit isn’t easy. Maybe they were scrawled during the lull in a wedding ceremony, or to jog my memory of a joke for later use.

    Many years ago, shortly after I retired from the Navy, I was sitting around shooting the breeze with my brother David when he remarked that he regretted never serving in the military and experiencing the things I had seen.

    With all the recent controversy surrounding the healthcare provided to our veterans by the Department of Veterans Affairs, I can’t resist the opportunity to weigh in with a few thoughts of my own.

  • Seibert, Sue 2010.jpg SEIBERT: Reflections on summertime ...

    Well, the time is here once again. We had a little winter this year, but summer is upon us. We’re having temperatures in the 90s, and very little rain appears to be in sight. I would not trade to live in any state other than Texas, you understand, but summer is surely not my favorite season of the year.
