MILLSAP MATTERS: New community support group to help those in need


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!
