A Column of Personal Opinion by State Representative Scott Krug
Happy Independence Day!
Whether you are going to parades, grilling out or just watching the fireworks, let’s not forget the historical significance of the 4th of July. 236 years ago the Declaration of Independence was adopted by our great nation, which so eloquently characterized our inalienable rights of “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness”. To this day we continue to fight for those rights, both in the legislature and abroad. I am personally thankful for every citizen that has fought for and those that continue to fight for our rights, because freedom isn’t free.
Finally- if you plan on lighting off fireworks later to celebrate, I ask that you be careful
and always take precautions due to this dry weather. Have a happy, safe and enjoyable
