COMMUNITY PROFILE: Market Street Feed continues a long history of service

Randy

Market Street Feed was founded by J.D. Adams in 1942, when Market Street was made of just shells. He ran it until 1963, when it was then bought by Joe Cox and his wife. In the year 1979, I, Randy Arter, started mowing the property at the age of 15, never expecting to one day become the owner. On February 28, 1980, Joe Cox hired me as an employee, I really enjoyed working for Joe Cox and the Feed Store business. After twenty-four years, Joe Cox passed away, and I became the proud owner of Market Street Feed on January 1, 2004. I was taught the value of running a successful business.

Over the years, time has changed our products and clientele. I have learned that you have to keep up with time, no matter how you have become accustomed to doing things the way you like. My employees and I continue to make many changes on the appearance of the store, but the theme will always be the same-old: rustic flooring, an inviting atmosphere, and antiques hanging on the walls. Over the years, we’ve had school field trips come through to experience the old style of the country feed store.

We have a wide variety of dog supplies such as collars, dog food, and shots. Most importantly, we have the knowledge that is required to help the customers with their needs.

Homeless man nearly killed, rescued from trash truck

CHANNELVIEW, Texas — A homeless man was rescued from a trash truck in Channelview last Friday.

According to authorities, the homeless man sleeping in a dumpster was nearly killed when trash was emptied into a compactor in the back of a trash truck. The man was sleeping in the dumpster because it was warmer.

The incident happened around 4:59 am last Friday, February 21, at a business along the East Freeway near Sheldon in Channelview.

The driver’s truck heard the man screaming as the trash was being compacted, authorities said. Then, he called Channelview Fire Department. Channelview Assistant Fire Chief said the homeless man suffered some injuries due to the compactor, but because the driver was alerted in time, he did not have any severe injuries.

The rescue team worked for about 25 minutes to free the man, who was then transported by ambulance to East Houston Medical Center to be treated for a broken leg and numerous cuts.

County Attorney sues Channelview truck stop

Truck Stop

Harris County Attorney Vince Ryan has filed suit against the owner and operator of a Channelview truck stop claiming it is a public nuisance because of criminal activity such as prostitution and robbery. Ryan is asking a court to order that the Key Truck Stop, located at 17124 I-10 East, take action to stop the criminal activity that has taken place at that location for years.

“Since January of 2010, the Harris County Sheriff’s Department has handled multiple criminal cases at the Key Truck Stop including prostitution, robbery, aggravated assault, and drug offenses,” said County Attorney Ryan. “The defendants are aware of these crimes yet have done nothing to stop them. It will obviously take legal action for them to do the right thing for this community.”

The defendants are Desai Pratap, owner of the property, and Channelview Enterprises, Inc., operator of the truck stop.
