Letter: What are the commissioners thinking by allowing firework sales?
To The Garco Commissioners:
I cannot believe that Martin & Samson approved firework sales for this Fourth of July. We have fires burning all over the state — two in our own back yard just last week. What are you thinking? I probably shouldn’t be surprised but I am. There are too many adjectives to count; appalled, astonished, disgusted, shocked, dismayed, etc. Fire and police departments get ready. You are in for a fun-filled time. Perhaps Martin and Samson would like to do ride alongs to see what this brilliant decision has wrought? As for Mr. Cordova, I understand you have a livelihood to maintain but we have been in a drought for years and have not had Fourth of July fireworks for at least three years now. We cannot risk this — not with the dry conditions here — so what is so hard to grasp about that? I was floored when I read that you had brought God into your argument. Colorado is being punished for its amorality? What? We are too liberal therefore the drought is occurring? I have one word for you: Move. Go east where it is raining buckets and sell your fireworks there. I for one will not miss you.
