It was definitely a festive 4th of July. The crowd at Stanley Quarter Park for the Great American Boom was the biggest one I’ve seen yet.

I was there around 6 p.m. and the place was getting full already. Around 9 p.m. it was very crowded as people were everywhere. People could be found in every pocket of the park.

The City holds one of the best events around. People come from all over the State.

I walked down, but the traffic looked like it would take hours to clear.

I tasted several foods like the BBQ Jerk chicken and fried dough. They were delicious. It was nice to see so many vendors.

The fireworks are always the main attraction and they did not disappoint. It was a spectacular show. I didn’t hear one complaint.

Read more about the Great American Boom on page 1.

This week we have our Top 10 delis as voted by members of our Facebook group. Angelo’s Market took the top honor. See page 1 for the complete list.

The 4th of July is over and already I am thinking about Halloween. On page 2 is an article on a grant for the event. We need a lot more money to make this work. This year we will be holding a Dinner and a Movie at Roma’s. Please plan on attending or donate to help keep the event moving forward.

We also have an article this week on feeling patriotic. Do you feel more or less patriotic this year? We asked that question to our Facebook group. We had some interesting answers. See page 3 for the results.

If you see our paper not out for a week this summer, do not be alarmed. We take several weeks off at this time. We will return soon. It is just the way it is in the summer.

Did any of you watch the Twilight Zone marathon on Syfy for the holiday? It is my favorite. I wish it lasted 4 days like it did around New Year’s Eve.

So it is time for my joke or jokes of the week. These are two of several sent in to me. If you have a good joke, send it to nbcityjournal@yahoo.com for my consideration.

A man walks into a bar with a slab of asphalt under his arm and says: “A beer please, and one for the road.”


Two cannibals are eating a clown. One says to the other: “Does this taste funny to you?”

Until next week, keep the jokes coming and keep reading New Britain’s #1 Most Trusted Newspaper.
