Fireworks Create Sparks in Bowling Green

Bowling Green City Commissioner Brian “Slim” Nash was recently told a joke by a Bowling Green resident. The man remarked that the last person to sign the Declaration of Independence actually did so on July 12. Then the man said, perhaps that’s why fireworks are still being shot off in the city. Tuesday night, the Bowling Green Board of Commissioners will seek a solution to the issue over the use of fireworks that arose following the Fourth of July. Nash said the issue of fireworks has been second to the smoking ban in terms of feedback he’s received from citizens. He said he has received numerous emails and calls from people against fireworks.
