I am a long-time resident of Hooper. I've been here since 1994 and I live in one of the oldest homes in Hooper. I am upset over Mayor Corry Green's decision to cancel our beloved fireworks for the nation's birthday. Over what? Money.
Ever since I have lived here, I looked forward to having the 4th of July celebration in Hooper. We sit on our roofs and watch the fireworks. I have always commented to Glen Barrow, our former mayor, on what a wonderful job they did to put this on.
I have to say, Mayor Green, your actions are selfish to our community.
