RAIN BOW – The Sitka Fire Department’s ladder truck hoses the crowd at the water fight on Lincoln Street on the 4th of July. Hundreds turned out to watch the Sitka Fire Department battle the U.S. Coast Guard in the contest where firefighters use  hoses to blast an empty metal keg past the competition. More photos from Sitka’s Independence Day celebration are published on page 6 of today’s Sentinel.  (Sentinel Photo by James Poulson)
