Over the years celebrating the July 4th holiday has changed.

Fireworks this year began in my area on July 2 and continued through July 7.

I propose limiting fireworks to July 4th, and July 5th. To include no later than 11 p.m.

Pets, livestock and wildlife are greatly affected by the repetitive sounds and flashing of light.

There is so much more to do in the High Country and many other ways to celebrate our freedom.

Thank you for considering alternatives.
