New business honors Marines while dishing out BBQ

By SHARRON HUDSON

MILLSAP – With the famous Pennsylvania groundhog predicting an early spring that’s also a sure sign that things are about to get busier for most folks.

As we busily run from one thing to the next a good meal always makes it easier to keep on going, and we have a new business in Millsap that can help out on that front. Devil Dog Bar-B-Q, located north of the Community Center, has come into town under the ownership of Westley Ruiz, who comes from a long line of meat chefs.

He has a recognized talent for his cooking methods and has experienced sell out days since he has been in our town. A real family man with three kids, including a set of twins, and another on the way he comes out from the family’s home in Hudson Oaks to run his business Monday-Saturday, 11 a.m.-6 p.m.

With his own recipes cooked over mesquite there is brisket, sausage and ribs plus a variety of sides and drinks available at reasonable prices. With the business named in honor of the many Marines in Westley’s family this guy has dreams of expanding his business and currently is available for catering and special orders. For more info call 940-452-7222. Welcome to Millsap, Devil Dog Bar-B-Q and much success!

Our elementary school is popping with some events that are really great for the kids. The most recent happening was the “Bring Your Dad to School Day,” sponsored by the Millsap Afterschool Program.  The dads came in at 7:30 a.m. for breakfast, visited the classrooms and had a short program presented by Dene Herbel. With 156 men participating, pictures showed dads in their work clothes taking time to let the children know that they care about their daily lives at school and their education. These fathers are to be commended for showing the kids that they support their education, and all school personnel and volunteers are congratulated on a job well done!
