WHERE IN THE HERALD ARE ART AND MARTY DEES? WZEP’s Art and Marty stopped for this photo at Yellowstone National Park. The two saw Old Faithful, and also visited the Grand Tetons, part of the celebration of their 50th wedding anniversary, which is July 12.
MOST FOURTH of July celebrations were cancelled as a result of super-rainy conditions in Walton County for the holiday. This was also the case for celebrations planned at Rosemary Beach, with the exception of the town’s fireworks display, which went on, but one night later. (Photo by Dotty Nist)
