It’s almost one of my favorite times of the year in the Fourth of July. I love this patriotic holiday as well as watching the Great American Boom.

This year I am asking those out there to please not use illegal fireworks. Only sparkler type fireworks are allowed. Each year I hear blasts from illegal fireworks.

Many people have lost limbs and been injured by these firecrackers. I had a relative who lost a finger using them.

Secondly, those who were in the war can be frightened more than you can imagine. Elderly and ill do not need to be woken up by loud explosives. Lastly, animals are scared of them. My dog hides in the closet and won’t go outside at night for months. I mean like 6 months.

Please be considerate this year. A moment of fun for you can be unnecessary chaos for someone else. Use legal fireworks only. Leave the big ones up to the experts!

See page 1 for more information on The Great American Boom.

Are you ready to pay your taxes? They go out Friday. Not my favorite thing. At least car taxes will be delayed until a State budget is approved. See story on page 1.

It was very nice of the City to dedicate the Walnut Hill Playground to Lisa Carver. It is always great to be appreciated. Her family should be very proud. See story on page 3.

Did any of you get to watch 40Live? It is the Mayor’s Office hours live on Facebook. It happened on Monday. A lot of good questions were asked about pools, garbage, the police and even the possibility of a Gay Pride Parade next year.

I will try to keep you updated so you can watch the next one. Think of a good question to ask Mayor Erin Stewart.

Speaking of good questions, we get a lot of questions and comments in our Facebook group. Go to The New Britain City Journal Facebook group and find out the latest every day. It is always interesting reading.

I received an email this week with several funny jokes. Here are a few.

Two antennas met on a roof, fell in love and got married. The Ceremony wasn’t much, but the reception was excellent.


A jumper cable walks into a bar. The bartender says, “I’ll serve you, but don’t start anything.”

Until next week have a sparkling week and keep reading New Britain’s #1 Most Trusted Newspaper!
