Chris Dewbre, left, and Mandy Jackson show some of the new types of consumer fireworks that are available this year, along with some old favorites like Black Cats, at the store off the Brady Highway near Greenleaf Cemetery. Jackson holds one of the “fin” type aerial fireworks that will not be for sale following action by Brown County Commissioners in response to the dry conditions. Texas allows the sale of fireworks in the days prior to July 4 and New Year’s Eve each year. Photo by Calvin Brown
