Good Friday

#1: DON’T FORGET GOOD FRIDAY

Good Friday is March 30. On this day, Christians observe the commemoration of the crucifixion of Jesus. Although it’s not a federal holiday in the United States, many families start their Easter celebrations on this day. All Wise County school districts are closed on Good Friday this year.

Easter Bunny

#2: FOLLOW THOSE BUNNY TRACKS

“Here comes Peter Cottontail, hoppin’ down the bunny trail, hippity, hoppity, Easter’s on it’s way.” (Everybody sing!) The Easter Bunny is expected to make several stops in Wise County, not only at private homes, but also at various public events. To discover what Easter celebrations are planned in your community, see the Messenger’s roundup of events online.

Soccer

#3: BRIDGEPORT SOCCER BI-DISTRICT BOUND

Both the Bridgeport boys and girls soccer teams will play bi-district games next week.

The teams advanced by beating rival Decatur Tuesday, clinching district titles.

The Sissies claimed their first league title in school history, beating the Lady Eagles 3-0. The Bulls won their third straight district title with a 5-1 victory.

In playoff action, the boys will take on Brownwood for the second straight year at 8 p.m. Thursday at Mineral Wells. The girls will square off with Mineral Wells at 4 p.m. Friday at Azle.

Rain

#4: SPRING SHOWERS BRING MAY FLOWERS

Keep an umbrella handy.

Next week’s rainfall is predicted to be heavy with a chance of flooding across North Texas Monday through Wednesday. According to the National Weather Service, there’s a 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms Saturday night in Wise County. By Sunday, the chances go up to 40 percent, then 50 percent Monday, 70 percent Tuesday and 60 percent Wednesday.

Some places may see 2 to 4 inches of rain with heavier amounts possible.

Baseball

#5: PLAY BALL!

Baseball fans, get ready for two of your favorite words: Opening Day. The major league baseball season for all 30 teams begins Thursday. This will mark the earliest opening day in baseball history due to the inclusion of several more off days inserted into this year’s schedule as part of the latest Collective Bargaining Agreement. Our local club, the Texas Rangers, will host the world champion Houston Astros at Globe Life Field to open the season.
