Letter from Rob McCorkle


The latest 4th of July Fireworks War is over, finally. For all but the Fourth and New Year's Eve, my wife and I live in a quiet, established neighborhood just off W. Boutz Road just inside the Las Cruces city limits. On those two nights every year, we are under almost constant "bombardment"starting at dusk from surrounding neighbors in the area and living in an adjacent gated community with loud, annoying aerial fireworks and firecrackers.

It's time for authorities to revisit their fireworks ordinances.I hope our new commissioner for this district, Chris Schaljo-Hernandez, reads this and acts. Mesilla leadership, too, should reconsider the wisdom of their holiday fireworks shows. At the very least, they should shorten the show and move it to earlier in the evening.

The current laws
aren't working. They are a joke and we're sick of it! It's bad for most pets and veterans suffering from PTSD, just to name a couple of reasons. Folks should suffer hefty fines for any violation. I can't wait to read about THAT in The Bulletin.
