Drinking at Wise County Park....NO say it isn't so!!!!
hey that sounds like good Wise County entertainment. can I come watch?!
Next thing they'll say about people out at the Wise County Park--they're engaging in "hooliganism".
When the 4th of July passes, and no houses burn down, no officers or firefighters were put in danger, and no person was hurt by a mishap...will we commend those that made the decision? No, because if you prevent a tragedy from happening, then there is no tragedy upon which to reflect the need for prevention. It's the damndest situation for those in decision-making capacities; whether local or world scale. By acting to prevent, they get all kinds of grief because it's not possible to look into the future and show everyone that stray bottle rocket that would have set somebody's house on fire. Or that stray dirty nuke bomb that would have been set off in an American city if we had not listened to a few phone calls. And by not acting, they get all kinds of grief when something happens that "could have been prevented".
When the 4th passes without someone's house burning, a firefighter put on the front line, or some kid having their eyeball blown out, will we praise those that made the decision? No. Prevention is the damndest situation for decision makers. By acting to prevent, if successful there is no tragedy upon which to reflect the wisdom of acting to prevent. The sheriff can not take us into the future and show the house that would have burned tomorrow night if not for the ban. Nor can the president show the cyanide gas clouds over Chicago if not for listening to a few phone calls that allowed the arrests in Miami. And by not acting to prevent, it's hell to pay when something happens that "could have been prevented".
How many fires were started last year by welding? Why isn't welding completely banned?
I heard that if the welders are working then they must have a fire truck present.
Somebody was handing out aerial fireworks last night in Chico. Around 10PM there were about five launches.
They have been going off in Bridgeport for days now.
Look Out ...I am going to Run ... While Holding Sissors ..Eat a Samdwich and go swimming right away.Actually I pray everyone will have a Safe & Happy July 4th.
11:57: Good Point!Have you guys ever heard the saying "hindsight is 20-20". Well we don't want any hindsight, in Wise County!
Too bad they didn't base their "good" decision on the laws of Texas. Their decision is going to cost the county alot of money. As a stand owner, I know I have NO choice but to file charges on the county. I was told by a commissioner that there was NO way that decision could legally be upheld. Well, they upheld it. Now I have to stand up for my legal rights.But yea, fewer fires I guess in this "EXTREME" fire damage. I think the Forest Service might argue that point since they still list us a "MODERATE" risk. No boundaries there to constitute a burn ban!!But Have A Great and Safe 4th!! GOD BLESS AMERICA!! I'll still fight for my rights.
Are you daft 11:10PM?"Federal Judge Harry Lee Hudspeth of Midland has refused to lift the counties’ ban on fireworks. “Our courts have not heretofore recognized the right to shoot or sell fireworks as a form of ‘freedom of expression’ protected by the First and Fourteenth Amendments. To recognize it now would, in the Court’s view, stretch the concept of ‘freedom of expression’ far beyond its proper boundaries,” Hudspeth wrote."
Daft, nope I don't think so. Check the data on the OTHER lawsuit filed in MIdland by Truckload Fireworks and WON!! That fireworks ban was lifted by a restraining order.Go ahead....call me some more names!! At least I can investigate the WHOLE story.
