MILLSAP MATTERS: Kudos to Bulldogs hoops team


MILLSAP ­– As we begin daylight savings time today, our community is celebrating the accomplishments of some dedicated young men.

The Millsap boys basketball team played great games all the way into the area quarterfinals. The anticipation and wins of each game brought the community together in a wonderful way. The accomplishments of the team became the wins of all Millsap students. Many adults around here looked forward to the games and faithfully cheered the team on.

The last game played found the score for the Bulldogs a little short of that of the Ponder Lions, however the memories of each game, all of the spirit, and fine teamwork of the Bulldogs will be relished by the entire community for a very long time. Congratulations to all of the players, coaches, and managers for a season to be very proud of.

North Rural Water Supply Corporation, which supplies water to some of our area residents, will hold their annual members meeting at 7 p.m. on March 20 at the office at 3810 U. S. Highway 281 North, Mineral Wells.

Some of the agenda items include: auditor’s report on system finances, comments from individuals who signed up to speak and the presiding director reading the resolution declaring unopposed candidates into the record. After the members meeting there will be a business meeting.  Some points on this agenda include: election of officers for the 2014 year, designate those who have authority to sign checks on behalf of the corporation, plus review and approve update of corporate bylaws and corporation tariff if applicable.


A well-known area family is in sorrow over the passing of a loved one. Jose Martin (Joe) Ortiz, of Midland, died Feb. 23 after a valiant battle with cancer. He was the son of Mrs. Erlinda and the late Martin Ortiz. Joe was a law enforcement officer with a career that spanned 45 years, including time as a police officer in Mineral Wells. After serving with the Midland PD, he was a bailiff of the 318th District Court for 20 years and enjoyed going to work every day.
