I would like to thank Tony Oddo for his letter, “There should be limits on setting off fireworks,” July 10. I too live in your area. Ever since the city council legalized fireworks in Lodi, I actually dread the Fourth of July.
The profits the city brings in are not worth the aggravation and discomfort to us who have pets. I haven’t been able to walk my dogs in the evenings due to the loud noise, and have to watch them tremble every night because of someone shooting off fireworks for the last six weeks. It is aggravating being woken up during all hours of the night due to some idiot lighting off illegal fireworks.
Yes, I, too, think we live in a war zone. My question is, who is responsible if they start a fire or hurt someone? Apparently not them.
There is nothing wrong with celebrating the Fourth of July on the July 4, but six weeks of fireworks is ridiculous!
