Local business celebrate longetivity The Leader has been in business for 60 years and it is not alone in the longevity department. When polled, local residents came up with a number of businesses who have been serving the community for years. Many of them are foodrelated, like The Barbecue Inn on West Crosstimbers, Shipley’s on Ella, Roznovsky’s Hamburgers and Juanitas #2
Adolph Hoepﬂ Garage on N. Shepherd, Wolfe’s Cleaners on Studewood, Mister Clean Car Wash, Merle Norman, and R.J’s Boot Company on Ella, Stone & Sons Marine on Oak Forest Dr., C&D Hardware on E. 11th St., Wabash Feed Store on Washington, Heights Funeral Home on Heights Blvd., Del-Mar Lanes on Magnum, Martin Tailors on Feagan St., Bob McDougal Sewing Machine Co on Yale and Manna on W. 43rd. Old pros like Oaks Dad’s Club tie The Leader with 60 years while Merek Brothers surpasses it with 75 years in business. All of these businesses and more deserve notice for being a part of the
fabric of the community and many have been proﬁled in The Leader’s pages. Here are two more to add to that list: Spotlight on Aztec Rentals Aztec Rental on 34th St. across from Waltrip has been around for 48 years and was started by Eldon Sorsby who appreciated its location near Hwy. 290, I-610 and I-45. Son Ray Sorsby still comes in every day to work and grandson Kyle Sorsby also makes Aztec his business. He attributes the company’s longevity to the fact they provide a “little bit of ev-

Andy’s Hardware since 1978, knock on wood Andy’s opened its doors in 1978 and has been going strong, fulﬁlling the needs of the northwest part of Houston. It most recently opened its second location in rural Hockley, Texas. Owner Donald Anderson worked for his dad in the business for 20 years and learned
it from the ground up with the mentoring and experienced training he received. He has passed that on to the people who work for him. He’s been at the same address on N. Nouston Rosslyn at Hwy. 249 since 1978 and has seen the area grow. Progress and technology
have taken over most businesses, but Anderson has managed to enlarge inventory, upgrade and diversify the business and grow to meet the needs of his corporate accounts and additional customers. Those customers prefer the concept and convenience of his “Old Fashioned Hardware Store.”
Andy’s has a knowledgeable staff to assist at both stores. Andy’s carries farm, ranch and feed supplies at his Hockley location. 12809 N. Houston Rosslyn @ 249, Houston 281-445-4128

Plan your ‘First Saturdays’ near Gens Antiques Gen, the Lab-Mix rescue from the SPCA, has been at the door every day for 10 years to welcome all to her store. She makes sure one of the Seeburg Jukeboxes is playing, everyone has fun and shares treats at all times. With 6,000 square feet of space, Gen’s Antiques at 540 W. 19th St. features everything from Classic European to Mid-Century, and Modern Furniture. Not being a museum, items are priced competitively, and the inventory is constantly changing. Gen’s Antiques is a BBB Accredited Business, and grateful to have been voted best antique store in the Heights by The Leader, in 2012, and second in Houston the last four years by City Voter. With over 300 pieces of local and vintage art on display, they’re proud to partner with The First Saturday Arts Market every month. Gen’s is open daily until 7:30 p.m. most evenings.

Andy’s Restaurant, 24 hours, since 1977 Tex-Mex doesn’t get much more old school than Andy’s Cafe, operated by the Morales Family at 1115 E. 11th St. in the Heights since 1977. And with the full menu available 24/7, it’s the perfect place to satisfy a middle-of-the-night craving for Tex-Mex comfort foods. Forget ﬁnding Baja tacos or short rib nachos at Andy’s. Their chili gravy-topped cheese enchiladas (which can be served with an egg) are classics, and you’ll swear the carne guisada with the slow-simmered beef chunks in a brown gravy, or the meal size soups – cal do de res (beef) and cal do de pollo (chicken) came from a home kitchen. That’s because the recipes are the originals from owner Sadie Morales, now 83, who started Andy’s with her late husband, Jessie. Sadie is still active at the cafe, along with sons Thomas, Da-

vid and Andy. Loyal customers swear that Andy’s menudo – the tripe and hominy stew that’s a classic TexMex hangover cure – is the best in Houston. The house made red and green salsas and bowls of creamy guacamole are great pick-meups at any hour. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner plates are reasonable and hearty. Early risers can get a two-egg meat-beans or potatoes breakfast special for $3.59 or breakfast burritos (same as tacos in other places) for $1.39 each from 5-9 a.m. and a plate of enchiladas, with rice and beans, chips and salsa, for $6.99 at lunch. It’s comforting burn provecho (good eating) at fair prices.

erything, from one chair to one bulldozer.” Manager J.R. Bolt said they do a lot of company events and rent out their fair share of tents. You can even rent a margarita machine from Aztec and Bolt jokes they’ll “try it out for you.” In addition to their versatile offerings, Kyle Sorsby also stresses their “commitment to service” as a part of their success. Spotlight on Yale Street Grill Yale Street Grill has been around for an unbelievable 86 years. From 1928-1954 it occupied the space where the Asian Café now stands. In 1955 it moved up the street to its current location and has been dishing out the malts and
burgers ever since. Joe Dupuis was the ﬁrst owner and his daughter Debbie Drouin carried on the tradition until 2001 when she sold the business to an outside management company. But the staff carries on the same as they ever have including longtime manager Barbara Guidry and wait staff Sylvia Arriola and and Juan Salzar. Arriola, who has been at Yale Street Grill for 16 years has four years on “baby” Salzar and said she taught him everything he knows. Weekend mornings the place is always packed but Arriola said they “always get it done.” Why small businesses succeed Other business owners have their own ideas why this area
is so good for small business. Ann Brock from The Posh Petal said, “I believe that the reason small businesses do so well in our area is that residents have a great appreciation for preservation and nostalgia. We are the small town in a big city.” MytiBurger and Baskin Robbins’ Shawn Salyers agrees. “This part of town has a strong sense of community,” he said. “They want to support their neighbors and they understand that supporting local businesses keeps the money in our neighborhood where it can continue to support our local economy.” Patti Kilgore from Kilgore Pest Control said that when customers are neighbors, they take a special interest. “A single mother has an issue, she is going to get a price break. If a scared mom whose husband is on a ﬁshing trip has an issue, she gets after hour service, a man with MS gets pest control and small jobs done that he can’t handle,” she said. “In return we get word of mouth and trust.” One other company that has always taken an interest in the area? Your local newspaper. Donda Dye said: “I worked for The Leader when I was in high school. It was on Glebe. I loved it. They really cared about our community and its people and happenings.”

New coach pleased with Panthers’ spring game

offer from Fresno State earlier this month. Hill’s also conﬁdent in the strength of the defensive line, led by junior Tre Carter and sophomore Bracey Webb. “They’re really athletic and quick off the ball,” Hill said. The linebackers will be a strong unit as well with Kilpatrick and senior Terrell Franklin leading the way. The Panthers will play double the number of non-district games with the new schedule. District teams will play each other, once, rather than twice, and Katy Pope John XXIII has been added to the district. Pius’ non-district schedule is one of the toughest in the state, with Fort Worth All Saints, Kinkaid, Sealy, Stafford, Bay City and El Campo. The two-year schedule was compiled by Coach Ware before he left for New Caney. “I want some tough opponents on the schedule, but this year we don’t have any cupcakes at all,” Hill said. “We’re going to have to battle week in and week out. I think it will help us prepare for district.” The district schedule consists of Pope John, Beaumont Kelly, Tomball Concordia Lutheran and archrival/two-time defending district champion, St. Thomas. “I expect us to be pretty competitive,” Hill said.
By Michael Sudhalter
St. Pius X head football coach Stephen Hill didn’t know what to expect from his ﬁrst go-round of spring drills with the Panthers. Hill, who guided Kinkaid to a pair of Southwest Prepatory Conference championships, was pleased with the Panthers’ effort, which culminated with a spring game on May 23 at Parsley Field. “I was really impressed with everything they picked up,” Hill said. “It was a really good three weeks of practice. I was pleased with how physical we were on both sides of the ball.
