The 4th Without Fireworks

An Independence Day Pictorial

Published July 4, 2011 @ 4:47 p.m.

I haven't heard a pop all weekend.  And that's good since all things that can ignite a fire are banned due to Garza County's worst drought in recorded history, so I'm told.   

I've celebrated this Independence Day praying for rain, hoping our firefighters have a day off and doing a little work on the newly launched web site, The Garza Post.

I also went around this weekend to see the spirit of the 4th and took some pictures to share with you.  Click on the these links to see the photos:

As is the policy here at The Garza Post, your contribution of pictures and comments are welcome.  Send them via email to

And even though we couldn't light fireworks this year, I hope you had a blast anyway.
