Heaps of praise goes to the little cities of Porterdale and Social Circle for the first class fireworks displays that both communities hosted last Saturday.

It shows that these types of celebrations can be held with the cooperation of local business and local donors.

The city of Oxford is also to be commended for its annual Fourth of July parade. We are all fortunate to live in an area where community pride is the norm, not the exception.
