RE: “Worst noise caused by all the whining” (letter, 7-6).

Thank you to the irritable individuals objecting to those “having fun” every Fourth of July. The rest of us, who quietly lament the weeks of illegal fireworks being set off day and night, need to speak out.

Independence Day is on July 4. In Parkland, the explosions begin in mid-June and continue throughout the summer. It is unreasonable to suggest those with animals or anyone who does not enjoy earsplitting booms or potential fire put in earplugs or go to Canada for an extended period of time.

Enjoy the three days you are allowed to light off fireworks and then give the rest of us peace and quiet. While you are at it, why don’t you step up, as citizens, and clean up the firework debris left in the streets.
