Cannon Fodder

The Forth of July in downtown Shelby heated up a bit more as a familiar homemade cannon exploded. The cannon, fashioned from large oilfield pipe has been fired at various events over the past years. According to unofficial report, this year, the owner(s) thought they would spice things up a bit. In order to do that, they added a double charge of powder before inserting the customary watermelon. The cannon was located in the middle of the Main Street business district and next to the Tap Room bar. As you might expect, all hell broke loose when the cannon was lit. It blew all to pieces sending chunks of steel hurling everywhere. One chunk blasted trough the Tap Room bar's front window not stopping until it hit the back wall in the building. The bar was full of people at the time and luckily the only injuries were minor cuts from the flying glass. Two other pieces of steel made about 8 inch holes through a glass door and window of the USbank building. One hit the ATM machine and the other the bank vault. The bank was closed with no persons inside. Some car windows were knocked out, a business's airconditioner was destroyed, a large awning had a long cut in it and business alarms went off. The windows of a nearby office shook so hard that it's alarm reported that glass was breaking.
