The deadline for filing for city council and school board elections is 5 p.m. Friday.

The races generating the most talk are for Decatur City Council and Decatur School Board seats, so it will be interesting to see what, if anything, unfolds next week.

The deadline to file is 5 p.m. Friday. To do so, visit the city secretary or superintendent’s secretary for the entity in which you plan to run.

Self defense

Wise Hope Shelter and Crisis Center has partnered with The North Texas Karate Academy in Bridgeport to host a free self-defense class for all teens, age 10 and older.

The class is 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday. Your daughter will learn tips and tools to empower and protect herself. Space is limited. To sign up, call 940-626-4585 or email


The Wise County Youth Fair is around the corner, and local buyers associations are wrapping up their fundraising to purchase projects at the sale of champions.

If you want to help, mark your calendar for the 9th Annual Jimmy Ware Memorial Dinner and Auction, in honor of the late ag teacher and advocate for local youth. The event benefits the Boyd Buyers Association and is 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday at Boyd High School cafetorium. Tickets are $15 for ages 13 and older and $10 for ages 12 and younger.
