Personal , HanmmcmtAntimldati0n bh Key Children Hot time around county for the Fourth by Mary Ann McNeill Gazette Staff Fireworks, the highlight of all Fourth of July celebrations, will light up the skies Friday throughout Nye County. In Pahrump, the brilliant displays, pops and explosive bursts will begin at 9 p.m. at Petrack Park, Basin Avenue and Highway 160. Here are the July 4th weekend activities around Nye County: The Pahrump Valley Volunteer Firefighters Associa- tion is again sponsoring fireworks and challenging the Nye County Sheriff's office to a softball game on July 4th. The PVVFFA got a total of $8,000 and a better deal from suppliers for the fireworks assortment, so it plans to provide a longer show this year, according to Shawn McAdams, president of the group. It may last up to 35 minutes. The softball game starts at 8 a.m. Since the firefighters won the game last year, it promises to be a grudge match. Parking is available all around Petrack Park with a small area being roped off around the arena for safety reasons. Carnival rides and vendors will be at the park all three days from sun-up to sun-down. Vendors can reserve booth space up to the last minute at $20 per day, or $50 for the weekend, by calling the fire department office at 727- 5658. The Tonopah Fire Department is sponsoring fireworks from the Joe Friel Sports Complex at about 9 p.m. Accord- ing to Jim Merlino of the Chamber of Commerce, Tonopah also has a kids' parade starting at noon down Main Street; swimming events at the public pool; an old-fashioned barbecue at the complex from 5 to 7 p.m.; and many other family fun and games in the afternoon at the complex. The Beatty Volunteer Fire Department will have a parade starting at noon and fireworks display about dusk, according to fireman Mike Lasorsa. Beatty also has a watermelon feed, kids' games like burlap bag races and egg tosses, concession booths and raffles for prizes spon- sored by local and Las Vegas merchants. The Goldfield Volunteer Fire Department will host its fireworks display at dusk in the park, kids' games at 10 a.m., adult games at noon, a potluck barbecue at 2 p.m., with raffles and an auction. On Thursday, July 3 there will be a dance at the park at 7 p.m. The Town of Round Mountain will host a decorated bike parade at 11:30 a.m. on July 4th, beginning at Hadley Fire Station and ending at Hadley Park. I A sand volleyball tournament will begin after the pa- rade, about noon at Hadley Park, and the fireworks display will begin at dusk at the north end of the park. The Baker, Calif., celebration will be held Saturday, July 5, according to Shirley Dougherty of the Baker Cham- ber of Commerce. A barbecue will start at 4 p.m. and a street dance is scheduled from 6 - 11 p.m., with the Cross- roads band performing. The events will be held at the Senior Hall in the park behind the fire station off of Baker Road. The American Legion Post 690 is sponsoring the events as its first fund raising project. State Forester issues fireworks warning "Fireworks are prohibited in wildland areas throughout the state protected by the Ne- vadaDivision of Forestry, and are illegal to possess in many California border counties throughout the Eastern Sierra region," warns Nevada State Forester Roy Trenoweth. "As aresult of the wet win- ter and spring, we have ex- traordinary growth of grasses and light vegetation through- out the wildland areas which can promote the spread of a fast moving wildland fire," Trenoweth says. "Higher temperatures, wind and drier conditions, combined with accumulations of dead and dying vegetation in wildland areas throughout the state combine to produce the potential for large wild- land fires." Trenoweth says fireworks are illegal to possess or use on federal, state and local fire protection jurisdictions, and in most cases, fireworks are seized when shipped or mailed into those areas. In addition, he noted indi- Jan McDonald, M.D. Dermatology Clinic of Nevada, Ltd. Harvard Medical School & Mayo Clinic Trained at Pahrump Medical Center 1501 E.

"I urge all who wish to see fireworks on the Fourth of July holiday to take advan- tage of the public fireworks displays in various communi- ties throughout the state. These displays are !icensed by the State Fire Marshal, and provide not only a spectacular Fourth of July show, but doso with a degree of safety that individual use of fireworks cannot provide," Trenoweth said. He noted each year hun- dreds of adults and children are injured and maimed by the use of fireworks. Trenoweth urged persons planning to use wildland rec- reational areas to contact lo- cal fire protection agencies to determine what specific regu- lations may be in effect for those areas.
