School is back in session and that means health inspectors are out keeping tabs on your child's school. Keeping on top of the ABC's and 123's right off the bat, is Howard Maddera head start at 4114 36th St.

NewsChannel 11 found the kids eating hot dogs inside and when you ask 'Are they good?' A wholehearted 'Yes' is the reply. Not only are they good, the folks at Howard Maddera keep the kids' food healthy. They are our first top performer this week with zero critical violations on their last inspection.
Lori Sisson works at the head start. She explains, "We have forms and make sure everything is up to date and we have checklists we do daily to make sure everything is clean."
Lori says even the kids get in on the act to help clean up and they know all to well the importance of clean hands. Several told us they wash their hands before they eat and one little girl told us, "So the food doesn't get dirty." As hard as the kids play, they take food very seiously and they all say they love Food for Thought!
Bar-b-rito's, chopped beef and cherry cobbler are just a few items on the menu of our one top performing restaurant. J&M Bar B Que at 7924 Slide Road is our choice cut. When asked how they do it, manager Tanner Davis says, "Well our main thing is customer service and we always get that done right and make sure our customers are happy every day."
At J&M, they always keep cleaning towels in their proper place and wear gloves when handling food. In other words, they run a tight ship. Davis says,"If they mess up, I let them know about it. I will let them know about it."
Davis tells NewsChannel 11 it's customer service that keeps customers coming back, but we think it probably has something to do with the food too! Davis says, "I've tasted all kinds of bar-b-que in West Texas and I, by far, enjoy this the most."
