Be aware of safety when setting off 4th of July fireworks

Everyone enjoys fireworks, especially in the festive Fourth of July season. But consumers need to be careful about where they buy their fireworks. The National Council on Fireworks Safety (NCFS) recommends that you only buy consumer fireworks from a licensed store, tent or stand. Never buy fireworks from an individual's house or from someone on the street. Such devices are likely illegal explosives or professional 1.3G fireworks that can seriously injure you.

Table Rock Bank to celebrate 130th birthday

In 1885 -- 130 years ago – many historic things took place. The Statute of Liberty arrived in New York Harbor, President Chester A. Arthur dedicated the Washington Monument, the first edition of the Dow Jones Industrial Average was published, AT&T was incorporated, and, as acknowledged by the U. S. Patent Office, the first Dr. Pepper was consumed, and something else happened closer to home.
