Guam - Mayors Council of Guam Executive Director Angel Sablan says he is still optimistic that there will be fireworks for the 4th of July and Liberation Day celebration. The fireworks that were supposed to be used exploded last month in a container that caught fire in Yigo. Sablan says they are working with the contractor out of Maryland, Fireworks Extravaganza, as well as a mayor in Australia to see if more fireworks could be brought to the island.

He says the Mayors Council already put up a $15,000 deposit for the fireworks. "It has nothing to do with finances, we have the fireworks covered, it has something to do with shipping it to the island, these are explosives and it just doesn't go on a regular ship being transported out here there's hoops you have to go through, paperwork that has to be done and regulatory agencies that has to give permits to do this," he said.

Sablan says if they do not get the fireworks, then they would opt to do a laser show or bring a big time entertainer to the island.
