Less is more?

I'm sharing this little blurb, from the Daily News. By the way, it appears that Katie Farrell is now covering the city beat. *

Mayor John Moak said his administration will work hard to find a way for the Yankee Homecoming celebration to have a fireworks display next year.

Moak's comments came after concern was expressed by the Yankee Homecoming committee because a carriage house is set to be moved from the Towle property to Cashman Park, where the fireworks are launched. The 1,100-square-foot building will be owned by the city and used for a variety of functions, such as public restrooms, storage and a waterfront classroom.

Moak said last week there are several options that can be looked into, including changing the size of the fireworks, but a show should still be able to go on.

"That doesn't mean the display is any less," he said.

I hardly know what this means - changing the size of the fireworks? Does that mean bottle rockets only? What does the mayor mean, exactly? We can only guess, but at least his administration is working hard on the issue.

*I know Katie from when we both covered Amesbury's Municipal Council and School Committee. I have no other comments that I wish to make at this time!

Good, albeit vague, news on the fireworks. Should be interested to hear what they come up with.

Maybe strictly sparklers?

I was going to say, I think they sell really cheap sparklers in NH! You must have caught the vibe ... lol
