Gary Wieseler has been running fireworks shows all his life, but this particular shell, during a show in St. Helena, Neb., on July 4, 2011, went off wrong and almost burned his head. He said he could feel welts on his back after the show.
Randolph, Neb., celebrated its Q125 this weekend. The town is now 125 years old. The festivities included a kiddie parade, mud volleyball tournament, street dance, multiple parades and a greased pig contest among other events.
