Time for Tumwater, county to ban fireworks

In just a few days, South Sound residents will celebrate our nation’s birthday. There will be backyard barbecues, family reunions and patriotic celebrations. Some residents will also set off fireworks, annoying neighbors and frightening family pets and wildlife. We encourage the City of Tumwater to begin the process to ban the sale and discharge of personal fireworks within city limits.Thurston County could jump on the bandwagon, too, and ban the sales and discharge of personal fireworks countywide.
