Palmer Report Independence Day Edition

Mountain folk tend to enjoy their independence. In Globe-Miami there is no exception. We like things the way we like them and there is nothing more to be said about it. Living in a mining community you develop a certain edge that can not be understood without experience. The people are kind but  hard, the handshakes are welcoming yet rough and smiles are only given with respect. I am proud to call Globe-Miami my home, proud to be in the United States of America and grateful for those who gave their lives to make mine possible. Here are a few spots in our area that offer a very pleasurable experience for those wishing to view fireworks in celebration of the 4th of July.

These are a few places to view the fireworks show put on by the mines every year. The fireworks are shot off of the tailing mountain over the majestic red, white and blue flag. Enjoy this Independence Day Globe-Miami style.
