John Ponikvar: Awesome fireworks
To the editor:
I would like to thank Kris Olsen, KC Hume and the rest of the Craig Fire/Rescue for putting on a truly spectacular fireworks display on the Fourth of July. The grand finale was grand! The river of fire streaming into the sky was amazing. I don’t know how the firefighters sent so many shells up in such a short period. It was cool!
I also want to thank Tim Borden, of Yampa Valley Bank, for providing his expertise and his resources that allowed Craig Fire/Rescue to purchase a greater number fireworks for the same money spent in previous years. His commitment to entertain residents of the Yampa Valley with fireworks is commendable.
I already am looking forward to next year’s extravaganza.
