1 Cheers to
the organizers of the various July Fourth celebrations and firework displays.

2 Cheers to
Camdenton School Resources Officer Chris Williams for earning recognition as the statewide SRO of the year. You earned it!

3 Cheers to
parasailing operators at the lake, who have demonstrated they care about safety over profit.

1 Jeers to
the increase in deaths on the water statewide over the holiday weekend. It’s a sad statistic we hope changes in 2015.

2 Jeers to
the driver of a boat who struck another vessel in the water near Larry’s on the Lake. When you do something destructive to someone else, whether it’s an accident or not, it’s your responsibility to make sure everything gets taken care. Guess not everybody learned that lesson.
