Did you enjoy this week's Kimball Days fireworks show? Mark Jansky and a crew of four shot off the fireworks again this year. Be sure to thank him, and all the sponsors listed in the "thank you" ad on page 2. The fireworks themselves are quite costly, and can only be brought to you each year because of generous donors. Did you wonder about those slowly floating fireworks? Those shells included two or three parachutes. Staff photo by Marguerite Laabs.
