Letter to the Editor

Again this year, Battle Ground lived up to its name. Fireworks stands were in abundance and fireworks were shot off at all hours and days regardless of what the rules say since the rules are ignored. 

For the sake of animals, folks who like to get some sleep, combat veterans and others who are bothered by loud explosions, it is time to ban fireworks in Battle Ground and Clark County.

I agree and couldn’t have said it better. If it’s all about supporting the various groups who sell the fireworks then people can get out their checkbooks instead. I’m all for celebrating our Independence Day but in a much more respectful way for everyone.
