Bragg has<a href="http://www.fortbraggmwr.com/july4th/"> canceled their annual 4th of July fireworks show</a>, due to sequestration cuts. Officials there say they just couldn't handle the $80,000 in overtime costs for the annual show. People in the area organized to donate money to save the event, but any donations sent to Ft. Bragg can't be earmarked to one specific program, like the fireworks. Mon, 01 Jul 2013 20:15:00 +0000 Sam Sanders 18202 at http://wunc.org Fort Bragg Cancels Fireworks Show, Fayetteville Fills The Gap
