I would like to thank the City Council, Police and Fire departments and the people of Bellingham for the best 4th I've had in a long time. Most folks complied with the fireworks restrictions. We have usually spent a couple days in the basement with our sedated dogs or leave town which we couldn't do this year due to work schedules. It was very appreciated and we look forward to an even more peaceful 4th next year. Thank you all.
