Here's a news item from the Associated Press: BOISE, Idaho (AP) — A collection of firefighters from around the state is getting ready to perform during President Obama's inauguration day parade in the nation's capital next week. A pipes and drums band made up of firefighters from Boise, Meridian, Lewiston and Coeur d'Alene will perform “America the Beautiful” and “God Bless America.” Pipe Major Michael Menlove told KTVB-TV in Boise (http://bit.ly/Vaxyft ) the group came together at the last minute. The group has been practicing as much as possible to get ready for Monday's parade event in Washington, D.C. celebrating Obama's second term in office.
