Andrea, Ashley and Brenda Bartel (from left) stopped by the Supporters of Boy Scouts fireworks stand Monday evening at D and Birch streets to pick out their pyrotechnics for celebrating the Fourth. Because Independence Day falls on a Friday this year, many communities, including Hillsboro are extending the time for shooting fireworks one more day. This year it is permissible to shoot fireworks from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. July 1, 2 and 3, from 10 a.m. to midnight July 4 and from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. July 5.
