Since Veterans Day is Sunday, the national holiday will be observed Monday.

This means government offices will be closed, as well as banks and post offices. Most retail businesses will be open, but if you’re uncertain about a particular business or entity, it’s always wise to call ahead so you don’t waste a trip.

Water Well


Got 2 acres? Then you can drill a water well, right?

Not so fast.

The minimum acreage needed to drill a water well may soon go up to 5 acres. The Upper Trinity Groundwater Conservation District is considering making this change and is holding a public meeting 9 a.m. Thursday at Weatherford College Wise County. The meeting will give citizens the chance to voice their opinions and ask questions.

To read a full story explaining the proposed change and reasons behind it, go to It was published in this week’s All Around Wise.

Trinity Street


Trinity Street Coffee Bar turns 1 next week, and you’re all invited to celebrate.

The anniversary shindig is Friday with an all-day happy hour. Jarod Grice will play live music that night from 8 to 10, and a taco food truck will be on site to meet all your noshing needs.



Sip and paint … or guzzle and paint. Whatever it takes to create your masterpiece at next Thursday’s Bridgeport Chamber of Commerce mixer.

The gang’s all getting together in the Old Sagebrush Building to socialize and paint with Wendy’s Mobile Painting Parties.

Cost is $35, which includes the canvas, paint, light food and the most important ingredient in this recipe for fun – wine.

As of late this week, there were only a few spots left, though. Call the Bridgeport Chamber at 940-683-2076 to inquire about a ticket or purchase one through the event Facebook page – Mixer – Sip & Paint!
