Huy Fong Foods To Start Making Sriracha In Texas?

A state representative from Texas has invited Huy Fong Foods, makers of a popular Sriracha sauce, to move its operations to the state. (Scott Olson / Getty Images) Also By Jenn Harris January 7, 2014, 3:34 p.m. Could there be a Sriracha boom in Texas? Sriracha BBQ does sound like a great idea. Texas state Rep. Jason Villalba says he has asked Huy Fong Foods, the makers of the Sriracha hot sauce with the rooster on the label and the green cap, to move operations to his state. Late last year, Huy Fong Foods was ordered to partially shut down after the city of Irwindale filed suit and claimed the plant's chile odors were a public nuisance. Villalba is hoping the company would be interested in moving, and has sent owner David Tran a letter with an official invitation. "As a public official and a corporate attorney for small businesses, I am extremely troubled by excessive government interference in the operations of private, job-creating businesses like Huy Fong Foods," wrote Villalba in his letter. "You have worked too hard my website and have helped too many people to let government bureaucrats shut down your thriving business." Tran was unavailable for comment, and his office said it had not received the letter. Villalba, who has been in office for a little under a year, happens to be a Srirachafan, but he's looking to move the company for more than personal reasons. <br>Read more:,0,4285954.story

Texas hospital won't unplug brain-dead pregnant woman

"Beyond the fact of what actually happened. We have boosters that have a lot of knowledge about the game. When we decided to go get Mack -- from the time we decided to go get Mack to about 30 hours later to have a press conference here and it was done -- we had a lot of input before we went after him. "So I don't know what the big rush was. I was kind of pleased that [Texas athletic director Steve] Patterson already said that he'd like to get it done in the middle of January. That seemed logical to me. <br>Read more:

Report: Texas Tech QB Mayfield still plans to go to Oklahoma

6, 2014, in Pasadena, Calif. "After long discussions with my family, friends, teammates, and coaches, I have decided to make myself available for the 2014 NFL draft," Manziel said in a letter posted online by the university. "The decision was not an easy one, but we all felt this was the right time to make the next step toward a professional career." Some NFL draft analysts have Manziel ranked as high as the third overall pick in mock drafts. In a style befitting his record-setting career, Manziel led the Aggies to a 52-48 come-from-behind win over Duke in the Chick-Fil-A Bowl on New Year's Eve in his final college game. Texas A&M trailed 38-17 at halftime before Manziel guided them to the victory by finishing with 382 yards passing with four TD tosses and 73 yards rushing and another score. "In all of my years of coaching, Johnny Manziel is the most exciting football player I have ever seen," A&M coach Kevin Sumlin said. <br>Read more:

Manziel transformed Texas A&M in his two years

Usually the head coach would know, especially at the quarterback spot." Mayfield told the outlet that Stoops' comments were correct. The Austin, Texas native is waiting on a Friday ruling from the NCAA that would allow him and exception from NCAA transfer rules and allow him to officially walk on at Oklahoma. Mayfield was a walk-on at Texas Tech last season and played in eight games after opening the season as starter. "That's what we're fighting. It doesn't really make much sense. <br>Read more:

Manziel leaving Texas A&M for NFL draft

Sure it would have happened without Manziel, but the interest in the program that he brought has certainly accelerated the process. Just look at ticket sales over the last two years and the national attention A&M received. No. 2 jerseys aren't just popular in College Station, they are popular nationally too. It's hard to put a dollar figure on the money Manziel has brought to the university but gobs would probably work. Aggie games were must-see TV for two seasons nationally not because of Sumlin or Evans but because of Manziel. <br>Read more:
