Re: "It's too dry to allow (fireworks) this year" (letter, 6-27).
After reading this letter about the ban on burning in Pierce County, I wonder why University Place allow fireworks at all. Neighboring cities - Tacoma, Fircrest and Steilacoom - do not allow them.
We sit in our patio on the Fourth with our garden hoses, waiting for a spark to come. One tree and we are all living in the Curtis gym.
Seattle has already had a few fireworks fires to date. Help, folks
