County OKs partial fireworks ban

December 13, 2011

rea residents looking to celebrate the Christmas and New Year holidays this year will have to do so without the help of “rockets' red glare,” as Howard County commissioners approved a ban on rockets and other finned fireworks Monday.

Commissioners voted unanimously — with Precinct 2 Commissioner Donnie Baker making the motion, which received a second from Precinct 4 Commissioner John Cline — in favor of the ban in hopes of staving off what County Judge Mark Barr said has become an unfortunate tradition in the county.

Sen. Seliger (R-Amarillo), said how the state finances schools in the future will be perhaps the most critical issue facing the legislature when it reconvenes in 2013.
