The man was putting a mortar into a tube on the 36000 block of Port Sailwood Drive in Newark when an explosion occurred, blowing away part of the teen’s hand, according to Aisha Knowles, a spokeswoman for the Alameda County Fire Department.Newark is one of a handful of Bay Area cities that allow the use of “safe and sane” fireworks, but the pyrotechnics that injured the young man were an illegal variety, according to Knowles.“It was a mortar round, definitely illegal, not safe and sane,” said Capt. Chomnan Loth, a spokesman for the Newark Police Department.

- Famed Little Princess 109 light show to pulsate again in Newark
By Sam Whiting - Wednesday Aug 2, 2017
[...] as a psychedelic light show, the group passed an audition for Bill Graham’s Fillmore West and became a six-man lighting act.The 1960s flamed out, but on Friday, Aug. 4, LP’s signature images will flicker and pulsate again for its Little Princess 109 50th Anniversary Light Show at Swiss Park in Newark.Two bands, classic rockers Eddy and Jukers, and the Grateful Dead cover band Dead Guise, will attempt to re-create the San Francisco psychedelic ballroom era in the East Bay dance hall, as the surviving members of LP — David Hillis, Kirk Linstrum, Jerry Radcliff, Gary Lawrence and Jacque Asbury Reynolds — mix the lights the way they did in 1968.The band, which had included the now late Rollin Lewis and Chris Mickey, did four or five original numbers, including one written by Hillis called “Keep Your Virginity,” and were met by charitable applause by the gathered student body in the auditorium.LP started out on the junior high school dance circuit, but within a year they’d grown from six members to nine.Eighteen hands were operating 14 slide projectors, three movie projectors, three overhead projectors, two black lights and a strobe light.“We thought we’d died and gone to light show heaven,” says Hillis, who never left his regular job, making ketchup at the Hunt’s cannery in Hayward.Among those who played to a backdrop provided by LP were the Band, the Byrds, Joe Cocker, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Quicksilver Messenger Service, Santana, Sly and the Family Stone, the Youngbloods, and Frank Zappa, according to Lillis.After the Fillmore West closed, LP tried to transition to Winterland but there wasn’t enough work in it, and the collective finally folded after a Cow Palace gig on New Year’s Eve 1977.Three years ago, the lights were brought out of the dark by Radcliff, who had not been in the original jug band but was there when LP transitioned into a light show group (accepted despite being a student at rival Tennyson High School in Hayward).There will be a one-hour rehearsal for the other five members to practice the liquid projections, which involve an upside-down glass clock face in each hand.Colored water and mineral oil are poured in and delicately swirled to form the amoeba shapes that are projected onto a screen.
