Gov. Noem Will Try Again for Mount Rushmore Fireworks

South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem has indicated she will try yet again to hold a fireworks display over Mount Rushmore to celebrate Independence Day this year.  Her request comes on the heels of President Joe Biden’s announcement that the White House will host its own “Independence From the Virus” bash.  Many feel even if the National Park Service reversed its decision to deny the state a permit for fireworks, it would be a struggle to pull an event together just a few weeks before the July 4th weekend.
