High demerits are only part of the concern at dirty diners this week.
Health inspection reports show serious health code violations.

It scored 29 demerits on a health report.
Kitchen cops exposed off temperature beef, missing hairnets, insect contamination along with a cross contamination of foods, according to results on a report.
Colima restaurant on 1402 North Closner in Edinburg also scored low performer status with 21 demerits.
An inspector found food on the floor, missing towels for proper sanitation and dirty equipment.

Food 4 Thought- Roaches creepy crawling their way around Valley restaurants

Views:3688|Rating:4.58|View Time:3:8Minutes|Likes:11|Dislikes:1
They live in filth, spread diseases and are infiltrating a restaurant near you.

Roaches are seen creepy crawling at various low performing eateries across the Rio Grande Valley.

The Pearl on South Padre Island is one of the kitchens with insect contamination.

Kitchen cops report finding one on the wall during a health inspection.

The Director of Marketing, Marisa Castillo, did not want to appear on camera, but admitted swift action is necessary.

“It is an issue that we have to address immediately,” said Castillo. “And we will do so and take it very seriously.”

Roaches also pop up at Janitzio on 1042 East Adams in Brownsville.

Kitchen cops order the restaurant to re-fumigate to get the problem under control.

De Alba Tortilleria & Bakery on 2633 Pecan Boulevard in McAllen turns up a dead roach in the prep area, according to a health report.

But, this week’s dirtiest kitchen goes to Tacos El Pio, a taco stand outside Pharr on Jackson Road near Dicker Street.

It received 27 demerits.

The eatery is no stranger to dirty dining on Food 4 Thought

Back in January it was shutdown for multiple violations.

The recent report for Tacos El Pio shows no sink designated for hand-washing, meat not refrigerated, no soap or towels for proper sanitation, excessive flies and no health permit on site as required.

They’re the kind of violations you don’t have to worry about at Laguna Bob’s on 2401 Laguna Boulevard on South Padre Island, according to the manager there.

“What we’ve always been known for,” said restaurant manager Tom Rich. “Good service… Good food… And now clean.”

Laguna Bob’s, which serves a variety of small seafood dishes, clawed its way to zero demerits.

The Food Patrol awards Rich a Top Performer sticker.

“You put forth the same standards,” said Rich. “You do something… You do it well… That’s what we do.”

Old Church Choir by Zach Williams, New Thought style. Thom Lich with Stacey Landes and the Mile Hi Choir crank out another great, uplifting song. Feel the Joy! Let the music move your spirit and get deep into your soul.

There’s revival, and it’s spreading
Like a wildfire in my heart
Sunday morning, Hallelujah
And it’s lasting all week long
Can you hear it?
Can you feel it?
It’s the rhythm of a gospel song
Oh, once you choose it, you can lose it
There ain’t nothing, there ain’t nothing gonna steal my joy
I got an Old Church Choir singing in my soul
I got a sweet salvation and it’s beautiful
I’ve got a heart overflowing ’cause I’ve been restored
There ain’t nothing gonna steal my joy
No, there ain’t nothing gonna steal my joy
When the valleys that I wander
Turn to mountains that I can climb
Oh, you are with me, never leave me
Oh, ’cause there ain’t nothing, there ain’t nothing gonna steal my joy
I got an Old Church Choir singing in my soul
I got a sweet salvation and it’s beautiful
I’ve got a heart overflowing ’cause I’ve been restored
There ain’t nothing gonna steal my joy
No, there ain’t nothing gonna steel my joy
Clap your hands and stomp your feet
Till you find that gospel beat
‘Cause it’s all you’ll ever need, all you’ll ever need
Clap your hands and stomp your feet
Till you find that gospel beat
‘Cause it’s all you’ll ever need
All you’ll ever need
I’ve got an old church choir, singing in my soul
I got a sweet salvation, and it’s beautiful
I got an Old Church Choir singing in my soul
I got a sweet salvation and it’s beautiful
I’ve got a heart overflowing ’cause I’ve been restored
There ain’t nothing gonna steal my joy
No, there ain’t nothing gonna steal my joy
Oh, there ain’t nothing gonna steal my joy

Food 4 Thought – Worker at rodent-poop-filled store makes stunning admittal

Views:6512|Rating:3.75|View Time:4:27Minutes|Likes:9|Dislikes:3
Derek Davila says he won’t buy food at a store that has a rodent problem.
His statement doesn’t bode well for My Country Store on 3517 Business 77 in Sebastian.
Derek has been the cashier there for the last year.
A state inspector recently busted the store with a number of rodent-related problems.
Records from last month show more than a dozen fresh and old rodent droppings were observed at the food preparation area, by the water heater and on top of shelving.
What’s even more unsettling to people who frequent the store was the fact that workers left a dead rodent on a glue trap while the health inspection was being conducted.
“That’s nasty,” Angel Rios, a customer said.
The Food Patrol asked Derek if he thought those conditions inside the store were sanitary.
“No,” he responded.
He added how they’ve been trying to get the problem under control.
“They just keep coming back,” he said.

Food 4 Thought – Country club’s kitchen in Brownsville isn’t up to par

Views:1969|Rating:5.00|View Time:3:56Minutes|Likes:1|Dislikes:0
Valley International Country Club in Brownsville scores a double bogey at its restaurant.
Los Campeones on 95 Country Club Road scores high demerits in back-to-back inspections.
Kitchen cops found expired bread, a cross-contamination concern with open foods, missing towels for proper sanitation and dirty equipment.
Photos obtained by the Food Patrol highlighted dirty conditions in the kitchen.
There were 25 demerits on an initial February inspection.
Los Campeones showed little improvement on a re-inspection one week later with 24 demerits, according to a report shown by the restaurant’s general manager.
Sergio Casas invited the Food Patrol to return after the 29th of February.
That’s when they plan to call the city for a third inspection.
Click on the video link to see the photos from the restaurant and to hear what the owner of a dirty convenience store in Lyford had to say when the Food Patrol came around in this week’s Food 4 Thought.

Final Thought Unsolved Mysteries The Las Cruces Bowling Alley Massacre

Views:643|Rating:0.00|View Time:11:23Minutes|Likes:|Dislikes:
Real Names: Steve Teran, Valerie Teran, Paula Holguin, Amy Houser
Nicknames: No Known Nicknames
Location: Las Cruces, New Mexico
Date: February 10, 1990

Details: On February 10, 1990, cook Ida Holgun was in the kitchen of the Las Cruces Bowling Alley, preparing for lunch. In the main office, day manager Stephanie Senac was adding up the previous night’s receipts. Stephanie’s twelve-year-old daughter, Melissa Repass, and Melissa’s friend Amy Houser were with her in the office. At approximately 8:20 am, a gunman appeared and forced Ida into the office, where a second gunman was already holding the other three hostage. The two men forced Stephanie to get them all of the money in the office. They took $4,000 from the safe. After that, the victims assumed that the gunmen would leave. However, for reasons unknown, the gunmen shot each of them in the head.
Around the same time, employee Steve Teran arrived with his two-year-old daughter Valerie and seven-year-old stepdaughter Paula. The gunmen forced them into the corner with the other victims. All three were also shot in the head. Before leaving, the gunmen set fire to a part of the bowling alley.
Minutes later, Melissa called 911. Police and paramedics soon arrived and began treating the seven victims. Steve Teran, his stepdaughter Paula, and Amy Houser were pronounced dead at the scene. Valerie Teran died at the hospital that day. However, Stephanie, Melissa, and Ida survived the attack.
Authorities questioned several witnesses in the case. Stephanie’s brother Steve told police that he had driven past the bowling alley just minutes before the shooting. He saw two Hispanic men walking towards the front of the building. The older man handed the younger man a small briefcase. The older man squatted down and then looked at Steve as he passed by the scene.
Authorities are not certain if the murders were a result of a robbery gone wrong, or if there was another motive. Rumor is that the men planned to rob the place and were angry to discover so many people inside. However, it is possible the murders were drug-related. Ida is sure that she had seen them there before, analyzing customers and the daily operation of the alleys.
Ida is convinced that someone knows the men who committed these murders.

Suspects: No one has been identified in this case. The suspects are described as Mexican, but they spoke perfect English. Suspect #1 was described as a Hispanic male who stood at approximately 5’10”, weighing 160-170 lbs. with brown hair and eyes, a mustache at the time of the killings and no detectable accent in his speech. He was around 28-34 at the time of the killings and would be about 47-53 years old today. Suspect #2 was also described a Hispanic male standing at approximately 5’6″, weighing about 140 lbs. and with gray/white hair and brown eyes; he spoke English with a slight Spanish accent. He was approximately 48-54 at the time of the killings, and he would be around 67-73 years old today. Sketches of them are available, and there are two versions of what they looked like on February 10, 1990, and what they may look like today.
Extra Notes: This case first aired on the April 25, 1990 episode. It was also covered on an episode of America’s Most Wanted. A movie recreation, “A Murder In Las Cruces,” has been made documenting it. The suspect sketches were created by Lois Gibson.

Results: Unsolved. Since the murders, the bowling alley was sold and first renamed Sun Lanes, and later, Ten Pin Alley. Sadly, the suspects have yet to be identified or brought to justice. The manager of the bowling alley, Stephanie Senac, passed away in 1999.
