Letter: Fireworks — when will they stop?

On Aug. 9 — that would be 36 days after the Fourth of July — we had fireworks during the night. We live close to Live Oak School between Armstrong and Eight Mile roads, so we’re out in the country where there are many lovely nights to enjoy. But this year, it seems like a war zone out here.

And speaking of war zones, what do you think our troops who have lived many months hearing bombs explode would think of all this noise? They deserve peace, and the use of explosive devices, I’m sure, does not give them peace.

Also, please think of the pets — dogs, cats, horses, cows, birds. They are so scared when they hear fireworks 36 days after the Fourth of July. This doesn’t count the days prior to the Fourth.

I still can’t believe that fireworks were allowed at all during this drought. There have been many letters regarding the use of fireworks, so I’ll say enough already.

    Lets see I lost count of all the LTEs complaining about the fireworks. But this one saying lets do it for the troops has got to be the latest novel approach. Come on Lodi can't you provide some ear plugs for the suffering populace?
