Millsap a ‘wonderful place’ with much going on this fall


Received a special request from Mineral Wells resident Missy Light. Her father, Calvin Light, who is a lifelong resident of Millsap, is seriously ill with Crohns Disease, and facing a surgery on Tuesday, Sept. 24, at 10 a.m. Mr. Light has been in a very weakened state for quite sometime, so there is grave concern over the needed operation. Missy is asking for prayer for her dad as he goes through this procedure. She is a very sweet young lady who loves her father greatly, so please help with this request.

There are many happenings in the town of Cool. The City Council recently hired a new secretary, Mary Jane Rasberry. Enthusiastic crowds are attending gospel singings at Holders Chapel the first Saturday of each month. Everyone is invited to come out at 6 p.m. and enjoy some great talent! The Rothrock Produce Stand, located about a mile east of the Cool blinking lights on the north side of Highway 180, will have their yearly sweet potatoes for sale about Oct.1.  This is an active community and we enjoy being neighbors with them.  

With Waldens Farm and Ranch Equipment Consignment Sale just around the corner on Oct. 5, many locals are preparing for this event which brings in a great crowd from far and wide. The actual event will kick off at Waldens Millsap grounds, 201 Fairview Road, at 10 a.m. The Abandoned Cemetery Association will be onsite selling lunch items, and for dessert the Millsap Neighborhood Ladies Home and Garden Club will have a Bake Sale set up at the store. Since there will be many visitors there are going to be many yard sales around town. This will be a great day for getting out and enjoying the fall air while doing some shopping. Come on out and join us!

In closing, the news in last week's column on the State Fair's unveiling of the revamped Big Tex drew some reader response. With new information, Big Tex now has his own song, "The Comeback Cowboy," recorded by the Fingerless Ghost Band.  According to the fair's public relations department, a new voice has been chosen for the fair mascot and the identity of the voice will be revealed on opening day, Sept. 27.  Lastly, the giant is now 55 feet tall instead of his former 52 feet. A great start, with lots of fun, for the fair and fair-goers!

Thanks for reading!
