there is a development in West Valley that is going to let the tenents light off
fireworks on the basketball court which is about 12 feet from dry cottonwood
trees that provide shade over the court. The manager there told them they have

it still makes me worry about the trees being hit.
I cannot believe that there isn't 100% (zero tolerance) this year on
fireworks (except in stadium or city shows) and target shooting. It can be done
on a daily basis just like the Forest Service declares "red days" in
forest areas (no camp fires or any other possible fire starting activities).
It is not taking away our rights for a short period of time not to be able to do
either of these activities. Why should someone with $25 of fireworks or someone
with a gun and a package of shells have the "right" to possibly destroy
property? It's a no brainer, and not a right of freedom! There are many
who have no "thinking" process when it comes to doing something they
"want" to do! Usually it is on someone else's property and not
